Fall exhibits at the MJMAG showcasing prairie experience Larissa Kurz

The Moose Jaw Museum and Art Gallery is preparing for three new installations to be featured this October, each one exploring a different perspective of life on the prairies. Museum curator Jennifer McRorie is looking forward to all three of the incoming shows, two of which are collections put together by local artists Russell Mang and Edie Marshall. Both artists are featuring a collection of landscape paintings, although each with a different perspective. “We always want to support local artists,” said McRorie. “And I thought those works together would be interesting, both looking at landscapes in different ways.” Mang’s show — titled Time, Presence, Place — features familiar scenes from in and around the Wakamow Valley and Moose Jaw.

Last few residents of ValleyMooseView Centre now moved elsewhere Jaw Express Staff The last few residents of Valley View Centre in Moose Jaw have been officially moved out of the building, marking the end of institutionalized-style living for people with intellectual disabilities in Saskatchewan. The handful of residents still living at the centre were moved out on Tuesday, according to a provincial government news release. There were 153 adults with intellectual disabilities who have now been transitioned to community-based homes across the province. Thirty-six new group homes have been purchased, renovated or built to accommodate these adults. Two new “safety net homes” have been developed to respond to people who are in crisis and need additional services. A third home is being planned. Since the closure of Valley View Centre was announced in 2012, the Government of Saskatchewan, Inclusion Saskatchewan and the Valley View Legacy Network have

worked together to ensure the success and well-being of residents as they move into communities of their choice, the news released explained. Every person who has been moved out of Valley View had a transition plan, where they and their families were invited to the table to make choices about their future, including where they wanted to live, with whom they wanted to live and how they were going to live. This person-centered approach puts the residents and their support systems at the forefront of decision making. This announcement has been seven years

in the making through careful planning with each and every resident, their family members and support systems, Paul Merriman, minister of Social Services, said in a news release. He thanked Inclusion Saskatchewan, the Valley View Legacy Network and employees past and present who worked toward this particular day. “Your dedication to putting residents first has made this a success,” he added. The closure of Valley View Centre is a historic step forward for individuals with intellectual disabilities, said Gloria Mahussier, president of Inclusion Saskatchewan. Due to this Saskatchewan-made person-centred approach, all of the centre’s former residents are now living healthy, happy and secure lives in the communities of their choice. She thanked the partners on the transition team for their thoughtfulness, dedication, and passion over the years. “On behalf of the Valley View Centre Legacy Network, I would like to thank former

Minister June Draude, as well as our Valley View transition steering committee partners from the Ministry of Social Services and Inclusion Saskatchewan,” Doug Conn, chair of the Valley View Centre Legacy Network, said in the news release. “Having a shared vision, the transition team worked hard to ensure that the fearful unknowns of the Valley View Centre closure were turned into a situation full of dreams, possibilities, and life in the community. “I would also like to thank the residents and their families for trusting the late June Avivi’s leadership and trusting the 14 recommendations developed by the steering committee that paved the way to a successful transition process.” The closure of Valley View Centre supports the Saskatchewan Disability Strategy by encouraging inclusive communities through the creation of numerous residential and day program services for people with disabilities.

Recognizing Important Contributions MLAs Column

Warren Michelson Moose Jaw North

Warren Michelson, MLA

Thank you to our seniors who have built our communities. This week, September 29 to October 5, has been declared Seniors’ Week in Saskatchewan. This special week encourages all of us to recognize the many achievements of the Senior and how important seniors are every day in every community. Saskatchewan seniors are an active and engaged group in our province. According to the most recent Canadian statistics, about three-quarters of senior men and women are engaged in “active pursuits,” such as exercising or socializing, and almost all senior men and women continue to be involved in passive leisure activities. Good health care and appropriate housing is necessary for seniors to remain engaged in their communities. Social housing is available in nearly 300 Saskatchewan communities, with over 800 units in Moose Jaw. This program provides affordable rental housing for seniors with low to moderate incomes. The Personal Care Home Benefit provides senior citizens with financial assistance to help

with the cost of living in a licensed personal care home. Fifteen new long -term care facilities have been opened in the last decade. Saskatchewan added nearly 900 more doctors and over 3,700 more nurses since 2007 and has gone from having the longest surgical wait time in Canada to being among the shortest. Home Care services have been expanded. There are many other services available for seniors in our province. The booklet “Programs and Services of Interest to Seniors” can be picked up from our office, or accessed online at h t t p : / / p u b l i c a t i o n s . g o v. s k . c a / d o c u ments/13/107855-SKH_Seniors_Program_Booklet-August-2018-online.pdf Our local seniors groups have enhanced our communities in many exceptional ways. I understand that these groups are facing challenges. As a community and a government, we continue to work with these organizations to help seniors stay active. Canadian seniors volunteer more hours annually than any other age group. Saskatchewan as a whole has the highest rate of volunteerism in the country and we want these exceptional volunteers to be recognized appropriately. The 2019 Saskatchewan Volunteer Metal nominations are now being accepted. The Saskatchewan Volunteer Medal formally recognizes the selfless devotion of our province’s volunteers and is a way to present role models to all Saskatchewan citizens. Christine Boyczuk of Moose Jaw was a well-deserving recipient of the 2018 Saskatch-

ewan Volunteer Medal. The nomination deadline for 2019 is October 18. Nominations are also being accepted for the 2020 Saskatchewan Order of Merit, Saskatchewan’s highest honour. The Saskatchewan Order of Merit was established to recognize excellence, achievement and contributions to the cultural, social and economic well-being of the province, either as a volunteer or as part of a career. The deadline to nominate someone for the Order of Merit is November 1, 2019. Nominees for both awards must be a current or former long-term resident of Saskatchewan. Any individual or group can submit a nomination. For the Order of Merit, posthumous nominations are accepted within one year of an individual’s date of passing. Presentations of these awards will be at ceremonies with the Lieutenant Governor in early 2020. Please consider nominating someone for one of these awards. To nominate someone, or to learn more, visit www.saskatchewan. ca/government/heritage-honours-and-awards . There may be several seniors that would qualify for being nominated in either of these special awards. During this Seniors’ Week, let’s take the opportunity to recognize and celebrate the many positive contributions seniors make in our province, and say thank you to a senior.

Comedians, assemble: Moose Jam Comedy Crestview Cabinets Kitchen Design Ltd. bringing ‘more funny’ to the Jaw Larissa Kurz


Lawernce, Full Banner Ad, Sept. 28, 2017.indd 1

It’s a dream of Garret DeLaurier’s to see the comedy community in Moose Jaw flourish, and he’s determined to do it one show at a time if that’s what it takes. It’s why DeLaurier formed Moose Jam Comedy, and why he started booking comedy shows here in the city about a year ago. He feels there is a gap here in Moose Jaw, especially compared to what’s going on in other cities in the province. There are comics and fans of comedy in Moose Jaw, but it can be pricey and inconvenient to travel for shows and open mic nights. “There’s a community in Saskatoon that has open mics and they have shows. . . and in Regina there’s a lot of improv and like pass-the-hat type of comedy,� said DeLaurier. “And I just wanted to have that kind of localized here in Moose Jaw too.� DeLaurier has already brought three shows to smaller venues in Moose Jaw, featuring comedians like Eric Johnston and Moose Jaw-born Kanin Kuntz. The turnout so far has been good, and DeLaurier is sure that with more thorough advertising, he’ll see more faces. Now, he’s branching out for a bigger crowd — the Mae Wilson Theatre — and is bringing back a familiar face, Tim Nutt, who performed at the Mitsu Sweet Cafe in June. Joining Nutt will be comedian He Fangzhou, who uses his experience of Chinese and Canadian culture to deliver hilariously deadpan observations on both, and DeLaurier himself — who’s got a whole set of jokes that Moose Javians will appreciate. “I am writing a lot of content that has a lot of Moose Jaw jokes, a lot of insider stuff, jokes where if I were in Calgary I wouldn’t be going with that material,� revealed DeLaurier. The show at the Mae Wilson will be a clean show, meaning there won’t be a slew of profanity or explicit content, although that doesn’t always mean there won’t be provocative topics on the table. DeLaurier hopes that a bigger show such as this one will light the spark for Moose Jaw and help him to build a bigger comedy scene here. “I would like to build something where I can have larger comedians come, people like Jim Gaffigan or Brian Regan or Jeff Foxworthy,� said DeLaurier. “And as we’ve progressed, we’ve gotten more and more people coming out, so it’s definitely been a slow build.� He’s even ankle-deep in the process of organizing a weekly open mic series here in the city, ideally with enough support to plan two nights, one for an older audience and one that can accommodate comics of all ages. “I’d like to be able to provide an opportunity for people in Saskatchewan that are interested in this type of stuff, because there’s a lot of stuff in Moose Jaw, and in Saskatchewan, to do with music or theater, but there’s not too much with comedy,� said DeLaurier. DeLaurier believes that Moose Jaw’s funny bone is already well developed, and all that’s left is to put the city on the map as a comedy central worth noticing. “I’d just like to put Saskatchewan on the map for comedians to book around,� said DeLaurier. “It’s still very new to Moose Jaw, so I hope that we can get some butts in the seats and keep this thing going a little bit longer.� He welcomes any interest and encourages any aspiring Moose Jaw comedians to keep an eye out for upcoming open mic nights from Moose Jam Comedy, and to grab some tickets for the upcoming show at the Mae Wilson on Oct. 25. Tickets are available either on the Cultural Centre’s website, or through the Box officer in person or at 1 (306) 6934700.

African Swine Fever virus found in two more Asian countries By Ron Walter - For Agri-Mart Express


The scourge of African EXPRESS Swine Fever (ASF) has invaded two more Asian hog populations. South Korea and the Philippines have both found infected herds in their hog industry, bringing the number of Asian nations with ASF to nine. China, home to one-quarter of the world’s pigs, has lost an estimated 33 per cent of its 350 million herd. An analysis by Angela Zhang of IQC Insights indicates the virus has increased pork prices in China by 67 per cent as the live pig herd declined by almost 40 per cent. Pork imports have increased by 36 per cent while alternate meats — chicken, duck, beef and mutton —have seen higher demand. Beef imports are up 56 per cent to 866,000 tonnes. Beef prices increased 12.1 per cent with chicken prices up just over 15 per cent. According to the analysis, Chinese are eating less pork due to higher prices. The short 30 week to 40-week breeding cycle for chickens has allowed larger supplies of that meat. The suggested need to import 10 million to 15 million

tonnes of pork to China has been offset by shifts in meat consumption. Australia has been one beneficiary of increased pork import and import tariffs on pork have been suspended. Canadian pork imports are still suspended over so-called irregular documentation of some shipments. Some cities have released part of their emergency pork reserves at discounted prices to offset lower pork supplies. Meanwhile Chinese officials claim they will have enough pork for the mid-autumn and lunar new year celebrations. Concerns about spread of ASF grows in other pork-producing nations. The United Kingdom minister of agriculture told a farmer union conference the U.K. can expect ASF within one year. A representative from the U.S. National Pork Council, Dr. Dave Pyburn, says China shows no signs of having the virus under control. The top question is “what are the chances it will enter the U.S.?� The virus spreads from travellers tracking it in or from smuggled infected pork products.

My personal demeanor tends to be more towards a peacemaker and not one who likes controversy. I do not like conflict, and I feel that I judge fairly on things that I write about in my editorials but many times I am venting on behalf of others that are hesitant to make their voice heard because of possible repercussions. There is no malice in my heart or actions associated with any Joan Ritchie individual or entity, and that inEDITOR cludes City Hall. Fraser Tolmie, the current mayor of Moose Jaw used to be employed at the Express prior to his appointment and I personally enjoyed seeing him around and we hold many of the same heartfelt beliefs. It was rather a slap in the face when we heard rumblings of him badmouthing our media outlet, of which he was associated with at one time. The same can be said for almost anyone I know on council. Although I appreciate the individuals for the people they are, I and many others honestly do have some concerns about the decisions that City Hall is making and that is why we are voicing personal opinions. When I look at what is happening nationally in regard to party platforms and the blatant disregard for any fiscal restraint by the liberal party leader, I can see a correlation with what is taking place here in our own city. Rob and I were and are first to admit that this community needed to have infrastructure upgrades, and yes, we know that this will be a cost to homeowners, but in the long run would be beneficial to all. Yes, this does cost out of personal pockets, but when I see the tax increases spread around to other projects that just come up and are allotted this money that should be used for infrastructure upgrades, my blood boils, as well as some salary padding done, too. Take a look sometime on the city website and see who is making what and then decide for yourself if their wages are feasible for a city that has not grown at all in population in at least sixty years, and where the city employee levels have increased by 15%. And then there’s all this talk about the city and their allowance of select media at some public airings with much of what goes on at City Hall kept under wraps behind closed doors. Just for those that don’t know, the city has their own communications’ person, and seems to consider their website and live streaming a media information outlet for the City of Moose Jaw. Would you not agree that there is possible censorship in the information released through their own outlet? Then I read an article written in this week’s edition in the City Hall Council Notes regarding a total of 212 persons out of a Moose Jaw population of over 33,000 (not including surrounding areas) that responded to a survey conducted on the city website, with the ‘powers that be’ quite pleased with the response and the mayor stating that those individuals were ‘engaged in the community.’ Please read the Letter to the Editor by Michael Dolan just prior to this section to enlighten yourself on how surveys are to be conducted. I guess when it comes to our local civic election, we will see how many people are engaged in what’s going on here in Moose Jaw.

Lobbying for Climate Justice “In democracies, elections are time of identifying problems.” - Darrin Qualman During this election, what problems will you be asking your candidates about? In Civilization Critical, Darrin Qualman explains how our linear growth-based economy is the problem. We are extracting non-local resources from the past, producing primarily non-necessities, and polluting the future. Our linear economy breaks nature’s nitrogen, phosphorus, carbon, sulfur, and water cycles—the cycles our lives depend on. He believes we can change from a linear economy to a circular sustainable one. It would have “circular material flows, contemporary solar energy sources, and systems local in space and time.” Our transformation towards a circular economy must be based in fairness and justice. We must

become citizens who care more for people rather than consumers who care for things. “Our greatest mistake was assuming that democracy is just about ballots.” Dave Meslin After this election, let’s become part of the decision-making process. Dave Meslin in Teardown asserts that “Each person’s lived experience provides a unique point of view that has value.” Paid lobbyists amplify corporate voices. It is up to us to ensure our representatives hear our voices. My pledge after October 21 is to lobby my MP on the 21st of each month. I will respectfully remind them that in my point of view, climate change is an emergency. Then I will ask what actions they have taken towards climate justice. Nancy Carswell

Government casinos reverse falling revenue trend By Ron Walter - Fot Moose Jaw Express

The house won more money for Casinos AGRIMART Jaw/Regina EXPRESS Moose during the three months ended June 30. Financial statements released by the Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority show an eight per cent increase in profits and a 2.9 per cent increase in revenues over last year. Revenues were up $900,000 to $30.9 million from 2018. Slot machine revenues increased by $200,000 with table game take up $600,000. The revenue increase reverses a long-term trend of falling or static revenues. The statement indicated table game revenues rose from demand and use of touch bet, roulette and blackjack

products. Slot revenues increased from higher spend per guest. Expense reduction sliced about $70,000, moving that to the profit column. Profit before paying half to the province was $12.97 million, an increase of $944,000. The province took in $472,000 more in this first fiscal quarter for $6.345 million. The increased revenue caused management to hike the budget for contributions to the province by nearly $4 million to $44.2 million for the full year. The benchmark of profitability, return on assets, was 15.9 per cent. Ron Walter can be reached at

Multicultural Council open house draws a crowd Larissa Kurz

The Moose Jaw Multicultural Council held an open house on Sept. 18 for the first time since 2007, and a large crowd of Moose Jaw residents attended to learn more about the organization and what it does. Stefanie Palmer, executive director at MJMCC, found the turnout was better than expected and was glad to see people taking an interest in the organization. “People don’t realize the depth and breadth of services that we do offer,” said Palmer. “We just want to make sure that the community knows what it is we do and why we’re here, and what we stand for.” As a federally funded organization, the MJMCC works with permanent residents to settle them comfortably and successfully into their new lives here. Settlement workers and interpreters are the first faces that new residents see when they exit the plane onto Canadian soil. The MJMCC begins the process with the 6-week Resettlement Assistance Program, which helps take care of immediate needs: government documents, healthcare checkups, locating housing, collecting clothing and furniture, and other basic information. Next, new residents are directed to Settlement Services, whose goal is to provide supports that will allow new residents to become confident and independent as they adjust to a new home. This stage of the process covers a ton of information. New residents work their way through the LINC program, where they learn literacy skills like speaking, reading, writing and listening to English. Settlement workers run informational sessions on all of the new aspects of life that may be unfamiliar: how to deal with cold weather, where to access services in the city, how to handle finances, and even how to use technology. Settlement Workers in Schools (SWIS) assist students and families while they integrate into a new school system and are navigating things like extracurricular programs and student-led conferences. Employment Services helps new residents explore their opportunities for work, beginning with things like how to write a

The Community Connections department works on alleviating the social isolation that comes from being in a new country, by organizing programs and workshops to connect with the community. A newly launched mentorship program, Connect, is meant to help new residents learn more about the culture and community through a one-on-one connection. The Newcomer Welcome Centre works alongside the MJMCC, with the main difference being that the centre is provincially-funded and also offers services totemporary residents — like international students or workers — and naturalized citizens. New residents can apply for a program to take their driver’s training and obtain a Class 5 license, and the Newcomer Centre is open for assistance with a number of tasks — like filling out forms or trying to locate services in the city. The centre is even able to help new residents obtain Canadian accreditation in their field of expertise, like medicine or engineering, and can provide interpreters and translators in almost any language. The Newcomer Centre also offers access to needed technologies like computers and printers, among a number of other things. They serve as the ongoing support system for all newcomers, with their doors open

Average farmland price increases cooling off this year By Ron Walter - For Agri-Mart Express


EXPRESS The rate of average farmland price increases has been cut in half this year. Prices increased a modest three per cent in the first half of 2019, according to a Farm Credit Canada (FCC) review. Last year farmland increased 6.6 per cent in value on average. “There might be some market adjustments along the way but the days of sharp increases in farmland prices have been replaced by more modest growth,” commented FCC chief agricultural economist J.P. Gervais. Changes in grain prices, global trade war threats and weather could be responsible for the lower rate of growth.

The slower rate of increase is part of a five-year trend in farmland values. Average farmland prices have increased every year since 1993 with a number of double digit hikes between 2011 and 2015. Most farms seem to be in a good financial position with the average debt-to-asset ratio below the 15-year average. In Western Canada first half price increases ranged from 1.6 per cent in Alberta to 2.9 per cent in Saskatchewan, 6.2 per cent in Manitoba and 2.7 per cent in B.C. Ontario posted a 3.3 per cent gain with Quebec at 2.8 per cent. Transactions for the Atlantic provinces have yet to be reviewed. Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@

His family was greeted by Jaella Wiebe, settlement team lead, and Hatem Abdo, translator and settlement worker from MJMCC. “I was very pleased that there was someone there who speaks Arabic and someone who was taking care of me and my family,” said Alkhaldi. “You can’t imagine how difficult it is, being in a foreign country, not knowing the language or where to

go, what to do.” Now, Alkhaldi works at the MJMCC as a settlement worker himself, and he finds it incredibly rewarding. “Doing the same services that I was given, for newcomers, it’s heartwarming that you can do this for people who really need those services,” he said. Bringing back the open house was the endeavor of two settlement workers with the MJMCC, Monica Chowns and Yvette Mitchell, who felt that it could answer some of the questions that MJMCC members receive extremely often. The MJMCC is expecting 60 new clients to utilize their settlement program this year, with three families already arriving throughout the month of September. Last year, the MJMCC assisted 57 refugees in settling in Canada, and the Newcomer Centre saw 180 new clients and 333 returning clients. Questions about immigration settlement and services can always be directed towards the Newcomer Centre either by stopping in during business hours or calling 1 (306) 692-6892, or to the MJMCC at 1 (306) 693-2677. Both entities welcome volunteers for any of their programs.

Global Transportation Hub — a dream that never achieved goals The dream of an inland port in Saskatchewan near Regina that would attract investors, mainly Asians, to set up business here has died. The inland port concept became a buzzword in economic development in the early 2000s. The notion had two pillars. Overcrowding at seaports on the West Coast of North America could somehow be alleviated by moving goods inland by train. Someone forgot that ships still have to be unloaded at port. The second pillar seemed really attractive: entice investors to build assembly plants at inland ports to take advantage of NAFTA free trade regulations. When Moose Jaw fumbled the ball on building an inland port, Regina ran for a first down. The Global Transportation

Hub (GTH) was developed west of Regina by the provincial government. The 1,800 acre site located in a free trade zone was expected to create thousands of jobs and lure large investments from foreign sources. Located along the CP mainline, the Trans-Canada Highway with easy access by rail or truck to the United States, the GTH seemed a good sell to business. The massive foreign investments never came. Loblaws was a major tenant creating hundreds of jobs. About a dozen operations located including some Crown corporations that may have been pressured by politicians to save embarrassment. Expectations were high. Success wasn’t as instant as expected. Alberta and Manitoba built competing inland ports.

And then there was the scandal: government overpaying for land, millions of quick profits by outside speculators flipping land. The RCMP investigated as did Manitoba Justice, not finding enough evidence to justify charges. By this time, NAFTA had been re-negotiated with U.S. President Donald Trump declaring NAFTA the worst deal ever made by the U.S.A. Politicians realized the dream of Chinese investors developing an industrial park was an illusion, if not a nightmare from the scandal. Souring relations between China and Canada left little hope for a real inland port. The GTH was nothing more than another industrial park, only burdened by $45 million debt and slow land sales.

The Saskatchewan Government sought someone to take the scandal-plagued, debt-ridden operation off its hands and out of the public eye. Six months later, the Saskatchewan Government announced Colliers International will operate the GTH under supervision of a government-appointed board. The tarnished inland port concept, now more of a political liability than an asset, was handed off to the private sector GTH was another good idea that was never executed.

100th Anniversary Celebration of the Co-Cathedral Our Lady of the Assumption of Gravelbourg on November 2 and 3, 2019 On November 5, 1919, Reverend Olivier Elzéar Mathieu, Archbishop of Regina, blessed the new church in Gravelbourg. On January 31, 1930, it became the Cathedral for the newly-created Diocese of Gravelbourg. Reverend Charles Maillard dedicated ten years of his life (1921 to 1931) painting the murals that adorn the walls of this elegant church. The first bell was installed in 1921 and four others were added in 1930. In 1998 the church became the Co-Cathedral following the amalgamation of the Gravelbourg Diocese and the Archdiocese of Regina. To recognize the 100th year anniversary of this church, the Our Lady of the Assumption Parish has taken on the project of repairing the bells and installing an electronic ringing system. The profits realized from these celebrations and the donations made will be allocated to this project. You are all cordially invited to attend the 100th Anniversary Celebration of this historical structure which will be held on November 2 and 3, 2019, in Gravelbourg. On Saturday morning, November 2, there will be a commemorative All Souls Day Mass at the CoCathedral. In the afternoon, visitors will have the opportunity to attend guided tours of the following buildings:

Co-Cathedral/bells, Collège Mathieu, École Mathieu de Gravelbourg, Gravelbourg Museum, Maillard Cultural Centre, the Convent of Jesus Marie and chapel. At 4:30 p.m., participants will gather at the lobby of École Mathieu of Gravelbourg to renew friendships, enjoy cocktails, and view a video on the history of the Co-Cathedral. The banquet will follow at École Mathieu cafeteria. At 8:30 p.m., everyone is welcome to gather at the Co-Cathedral for an evening of local musical talent—admission is free! (A free will offering will be welcomed.) On Sunday, November 3, at 10:30 a.m., a Mass will be presided by the Archbishop of Regina, Reverend Donald Bolen, who was born and raised in Gravelbourg.

Acapella choir offers an easy-to-commit evening of music Larissa Kurz

The Bel Coro choir meets every Monday evening with a binder of sheet music, ready to spend an hour or two working on their harmonies, and choir director Wanda Reid is always glad to see them. Reid began the volunteer choir about three years ago out of a desire to work on arrangements again, and she is pleased with the response she has gotten from the singing community in Moose Jaw. Bel Coro has about a dozen regular singers who dutifully show up of their own volition, and new singers are welcome to drop-in visits from at any of the group’s practices. Naturally, singing as part of an ensemble is usually more enjoyable with continued practice, but Reid doesn’t require people to continue attending each week. Bel Coro is fairly low-commitment, as far as choirs go. “I’ve really made it clear from the beginning that it’s just for fun,” said Reid. “I just didn’t want it to be a high-pressure thing. The idea was that anybody could come. It isn’t auditioned, or just for singing people.” The group sings mostly folk tunes and older music, including English and Irish ditties that have stood the test of time and familiar Christmas carols. Generally, Reid plucks out arrangements that catch her eye and molds them to fit her singers.

The Bel Coro acapella choir meets every Monday evening at 7 p.m., under the direction of founder Wanda Reid “A lot of it is older, and folk tunes are kind of timeless,” said Reid. “We’ve actually picked up a few [Celtic folk tunes] and I was looking at some sea shanties, I haven’t done anything like that yet.” Reid chose to put the choir together because she missed being involved in music. She felt that a low-commitment choir would be a great opportunity for both herself and others to experience the good feeling that comes with singing.

Singers of all skill levels are welcome to give the choir a try, as she is more than happy to accommodate however she can. Being a part of the group is a great way to stay sharp with those musical skills, especially since Reid likes to challenge her singers to make the experience satisfying. Although it may not be on paper anywhere, admittedly, Bel Coro is largely geared towards female voices, although men are welcome. She just rarely has male singers attend for long, especially as she finds it hard to build an arrangement for just one male voice. “The men’s voices really stick out. If I had enough men to have a whole men’s part, it would be different,” said Reid. “I haven’t said it’s only for women, but that’s kind of how it’s ended up being.” Bel Coro is just looking to enjoy singing for the fun of it and encourages more people to stop by one of their weekly practices at the Library and see what it’s like, and to appreciate the benefits of recreational singing. “It’s a really joyful thing, I don’t think you can sing and be down,” said Reid. “You’re breathing good so you’re getting lots of oxygen, and you’re making — mostly — beautiful sounds, and it’s just about the joy of making music.”


Election campaigns: the more they change the more they stay the same Oh for the old old days of electioneering when things were so simple. Election campaigns were twice as long but the interference with our daily life was not nearly as irritating, even interesting. Instead of being bombarded texts, e-mails and robo by Ron Walter with phone calls — some of them fake, some not fake — voters got their information on party policy from more relaxing sources. Voters read the extensive news coverage, taking as much time as they needed to digest and absorb the meaning or nonsense of policy and promise announcements and speech propaganda. Or voters listened to radio and television news and commercials. Most television commercials in the 1950s and 1960s featured the candidate or party leader in person. Voters could draw an impression of the candidate from these. Today’s commercials depict damning comments about the other person, almost as if the candidates have no poli-

cy, but just take time to run down the other party. The prime minister and the opposition leader travelled across Canada on trains ensuring that voters were never over-exposed to them. Small towns along the main lines got to see them. In contrast today’s leaders zip around the country in jets hip hopping to anywhere from three to five different ridings a day as they press the flesh and kiss babies. The baby kissing and flesh pressing part hasn’t changed. One will never understand how shaking hands with a leader or candidate or having them kiss a baby influences a choice for the people who run the country. In the good old days, politicians could get away with saying different things to different audiences. If they did, it took up to a week to become known by the public. With the instant media in this era double speak is easily and rapidly flashed across the nation. There was no social media, no social media history on which exposure of candidates’ stupid uttering or activities could ruin their chances at the polls. People voted on the candidate they know today, not the one who did something dumb years ago. One thing hasn’t changed: trying to buy votes with taxpayer money. Before the election call, the Liberals poured money into


marginal ridings they want to win. Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper did the same, but one account indicated Trudeau spent six times the last Harper bags of goodies. Promises of spending programs to sway votes without offering the costs haven’t changed. Trudeau promised to raise the old age pension 10 per cent, to raise survivors’ pensions, and increase the basic income tax exemption to $15,000. Conservative leader Andrew Scheer promised a 1.5 per cent tax cut to income taxes for the first bracket. Scheer said the money would come from welfare to big corporations like the millions in environmental subsidies for freezers to Loblaws. Given the Conservative’s close links to big business one wonders if they would really cut the funds to big business. Promises by the other parties don’t matter; they haven’t got a hope of achieving power. They can promise the moon knowing they can’t deliver.

Friends of the Library approaching 30 years of continued support Larissa Kurz

The Friends of the Library has been operating as a non-profit group since 1990, working closely with the Library to support programming and other initiatives however possible. The most visible fundraisers the Friends do is their various sales, including the book sales they host throughout the year — two in the fall and one in the spring — and their jigsaw puzzle sale. All of the materials are donated, and all proceeds collected are used for Library funding. In the past, the book sale was a once-ayear ordeal, but Friends member Anne Warriner said the group was seeing so much support, they decided to adjust accordingly. “We do three a year now. There’s that much material coming into the library, either through donations or from materi-

als that have been withdrawn [from circulation],” said Warriner. They just hosted their second book sale of this year on Sept. 20-21 and are already looking ahead to the upcoming jigsaw puzzle sale on Oct. 26 and the final book sale on Nov. 15-16. In their 29 years of operations, the Friends of the Library has provided about $250,000 to support Library initiatives, through fundraising and donations. Children’s librarian Tina Dolcetti described their support as “indispensable,” detailing a long list of ways the Friends help out with Library programming — including purchasing the prizes for the summer reading program, donating books to give away through the literacy outreach program, and funding the annual film license that allows the Library to

show movies through the year. “We actually had almost 700 children and youth sign up for summer prizes, so that speaks to the importance of generosity and funding things like our summer reading club,” said Dolcetti. In the past, the Friends have also helped the Library with things like making additions to their collections — such as the first items for both the CD and DVD collection — and have provided initial funds for grant applications, furniture, and even the annual staff development day. “In terms of funding the extras, that’s what we do,” said Warriner. “The basics of the library service is funded through tax dollars, and we exist to enhance that.” Dolcetti reiterated that there are a number of things at the Library that were

only made possible through the support of the Friends of the Library. The group continues to advocate for community awareness of the Library and its array of resources in the community, and Warriner encourages people to consider getting a membership with the Friends. “We are allowed to provide income tax deductible receipts for memberships as well as donations,” said Warriner. “It’s not that expensive, and all funds come back to the library eventually.” Membership for the Friends of the Library is $15 for an individual and $20 for a family, and is always available. There are brochures on the main floor of the Public Library, and payment can be taken at the front desk.

REFLECTIVE MOMENTS Small but exciting crop from potatoes-in-a-bag

If we were to depend on my potato-in-a-bag experiment, our winter meals would be missing that particular starch side dish. In the spring, while snow was still on the ground and visions of green thumb success danced in my head, I spent some time browsing the flyers that came to the house, many of them devoted to tools to make gardening a satisfying endeavour. Joyce Walter I skimmed over the For Moose Jaw Express various bulbs and tools and ornamental solar lights, fertilizers and potting soil, rakes and hoses and tilling equipment. As I was about to dispose of one of the flyers, an item caught my eye — a bag with potatoes flowing freely from the bottom. There was a brief description of how the bag could be used to produce a potato crop — without the fuss and muss of digging holes in the ground and tossing in potato seeds — eyes up, not down. I folded the flyer to expose the bag to Housemate’s eye and got the expected result. A look that suggested the bag was another whim of a skilful marketing campaign. A new idea that wouldn’t last, a waste of money and time, an experiment meant for gullible customers. Then one day he came home with gardening supplies for his patch of ground — and with a grin, presented me with a green bag in which to grow my own crop of spuds. I read the instructions, and off we went to buy seed potatoes and the required amount of soil. The bag was unfolded as ordered and some soil deposited in the bottom. The potato seeds were then dropped in and were covered by a layer of soil, watered and set out on the paving stones. Days passed, so did one or two weeks and despite diligent inspections, it appeared Housemate might have been correct about the validity of this $14.99 purchase, plus seeds and soil, not counting manual labour and water. One day I was advised I had weeds growing in the bag. I hurried out to see for myself what might be growing — and crowed with delight. The green sprouts were not weeds at all but potatoes, several of them. My experiment would work after all.

As the summer days passed, the potato plants grew and grew and grew, almost to three feet in height, and bowed over towards the south where the sun shone on them the most through the trees. If there were blossoms, we missed them, but continued to water with confidence, and showed off the bag to visitors who looked skeptical but nodded politely. Finally, the day after the first day of fall, we decided it was time to harvest my crop. I opened the velcro to expose what should have been a mound of potatoes. Nothing came out but a deep black cascade of soil. Not one potato in sight. In desperation, we pulled the plants out by the tops and came up with absolutely nothing. With shovel in hand, Housemate began digging into the soil and transferring it to a bucket to be dumped on the flower bed. But wait, what’s that? It was a potato, one that could be termed a creamer.

The digging continued, with whoops of excitement each time a potato appeared, all small, some the size of marbles, but still potatoes. When the digging was over, my tiny container held 12 potatoes, photogenic enough to be shared with friends and relatives. When cleaned and brushed and cooked, they made a tasty addition to the next day’s supper. Housemate’s harvest is going much better, the cost of production is much less, the output per capita of plants is higher, but the fun ratio definitely belongs to that green bag. I wonder if two bags would double my production next year?

Grandchildren of duo Twitty and Lynn keeping the music alive with heartfelt tour Larissa Kurz

The iconic duo of Conway Twitty and Loretta Lynn made an unforgettable impression on the country music industry, and now their legacy is back on tour with their grandchildren taking up the microphones. Conway’s grandson Tre Twitty and Loretta’s granddaughter Tayla Lynn have been performing as a duo since 2017, animating the music of their grandparents for loyal fans across North America. They took the stage for over 100 shows last year and have yet to slow down. The show isn’t about impersonating the country legends, but rather about celebrating their careers and the incredible partnership between Conway and Loretta — one that has again brought together a pair of talented Twitty and Lynn musicians. It’s not a tribute show, laughed Lynn, because Loretta said it can’t be. “It’s actually called ‘A Salute to Conway and Loretta’ because Memaw says that she’s not dead yet, and that’s what a tribute show is,” said Lynn. “She said she ‘ain’t havin’ it.’” Twitty and Lynn perform all the familiar hits from throughout the long discography of the historical duo, and even share memories and stories about their respec-

tive grandparents. Twitty talks about his Poppy’s influence and career, and Lynn shares what it’s like having a Memaw like hers. “Trey will take you on a journey through Conway’s life . . . and he’s just such an eloquent speaker that it’s a cool ride to go on with him,” said Lynn. “My conversations with the audience are more in an intimate way, about who [Memaw] is as a woman and as a grandmother and a friend.” Lynn said she takes the stage with Memaw’s “seal of approval,” which means a lot after having spent so much time with her father and Loretta on the road as a child and working so hard at her music. “That seal of approval means everything, and so we go out there and we give it everything we have, every show, because it’s not about us at the end of the day,” said Lynn. “It’s about carrying on their legacy.” Seeing the audiences continue to pack venues and shout requests is a perfect example of why Lynn continues to do what she does, alongside Twitty. “Everyone claps and laughs and yells and gets on stage, and we have audience participation, so it’s a good time,” said Lynn. “Every time I go to Canada, [Memaw]

Volunteers harvest large bounty of produce from food farm Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Volunteers from Mosaic Potash, SaskWater, the City of Moose Jaw, the Wakamow Valley Authority and community food agencies descended upon the Mosaic Food Farm and Orchard on Sept. 20 to gather all the produce that had been growing since late May. Once all the vegetables were picked — potentially up to 5,000 pounds — they were distributed to the three food agencies working in partnership with the food farm: Hunger in Moose Jaw, the Moose Jaw Food Bank, and Riverside Mission. The amount of produce the food bank will receive will help its clients, Deann Little, development manager at the food bank said. It’s not often the Randonn Swan with SaskWater removes organization can offer such fresh pro- all the tomatoes from a plant during the duce; sometimes its hampers are not annual harvest at the Mosaic Community as nutritious as hoped. What it does Food Farm on Sept. 20. Photo by Jason G. provide is enough food to put on peo- Antonio ple’s tables and to fill their stomachs. The food bank saw a record number of people walk through its doors in August, said Little, which also meant a record number of hampers were distributed. Celest Geisbauer, senior community investment specialist with Mosaic Potash said this was very exciting. “I was chatting with Mosaic volunteers and they said the farm is even bigger this year. It has grown in the number of plants and the types of plants.” One reason for the larger bounty is because of the fence installed this year to keep out deer and other unwanted critters, she continued. This made such a difference that Geisbauer thought there would be about a 20-per-cent increase in yield this year, which meant more food to the agencies. This is Geisbauer’s third year helping with the harvest. She considers this to be one of her most favourite Mosaic projects and noted that what makes this one unique is that there are six groups working with Mosaic on this one initiative. That rarely happens on other projects.

Tre Twitty and Tayla Lynn at the recent Nashville Songwriter Awards on Sept. 17, where Loretta Lynn was presented with the Kris Kristofferson Lifetime Achievement Award and Tayla opened the show with a performance of “Coal Miner’s Daughter.” (supplied) says, ‘Tell them I love them, because the Canadian people are the ones that made my career.’” She revealed that she and Twitty are even working on an album as a duo, recording some deep cuts from Conway and Loretta’s anthology of duets to release some-

time next year. “We are sort of finding their obscure, funky duets that they did together and we’re making a record,” said Lynn, calling it the natural progression of their show. “One that we just recorded is called ‘Spiders and Snakes,’ which probably a lot of people haven’t heard that one before.” Twitty and Lynn hope to see a theatre-full of faces when they stop in Moose Jaw on Oct. 8, ready to reminisce on the incredible friendship that has kept these two families connected for so many years. Conway and Loretta fans can expect to hear all of their favorites, including “Coal Miner’s Daughter,” “Hello Darlin’,” and “Louisiana Woman Mississippi Man,” to name a few. The duo has ten studio albums of music recorded together and an impressively high amount of number one hits to choose from. “Narrowing the show down to two hours was a feat in and of itself,” said Lynn. “Most every song that you hear, you’re going to know.” Tickets for the show are still available either through the Cultural Centre’s website, or the Box Office either in person or at 1 (306) 693-4700.

Remarkable woman became town blacksmith at Macrorie By Ron Walter - For Moose Jaw Express

Not all rural Saskatchewan women stayed in the home to raise a family in the early days of the last century. The Macrorie Museum highlights one of the women who raised a family and had a career. Emma Rostron was a blacksmith, janitor, and mother of five daughters. Born in 1899 at Percival she was part of a blended family – 10 siblings and 21 step siblings. She only had a Grade Two education, leaving school after a fall on a stump that injured her mouth and teeth. A cyclone hit the farm and took half the family’s livestock when she was eight years old. Emma decided to leave the farm and look for work. She did chores, moving in with a sister at age 12 in Milden. Among her many jobs was the local hotel. Then she went to work at the Macrorie hotel. The town blacksmith Arnold Rostron bought her lunch box at a box social and they began seeing each other. They married in 1917 and the 18-year-old Emma became a blacksmith, learning from her husband. While they worked in the shop, the children played in a large room at the back. When he died in 1958, she kept running the blacksmith shop until 1960 when she realized

new farm equipment did not require as much blacksmithing. She built and installed the sewer, water and plumbing in their house. Aside from blacksmithing she did janitorial work, cleaning the doctor’s office and the United Church. Money from church cleaning was turned back to the church. She cleaned and maintained the community hall and rink to pay property taxes and was school janitor for 28 years until retirement in 1971 at age 72. And she found time to take in boarders and help raise other people’s children with five sets of “foster children.� She died at age 90 in a retirement home at Outlook. The Macrorie Museum is located in the heritage school, built in 1917 and closed in 1988. The school served many community uses and as a field clinic during the 1918 Spanish flu epidemic. The school architecture, two floors designed for easy additions, was quite common in early 20th century rural schools. Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@sasktel. net

Backwards health care or just passing the buck?

by Dr. Steven Heidinger, Moose Jaw Chiropractor

With dismay and disappointment, I learned that Moose Jaw city council recently agreed with city administration’s recommendation to deny a local mental health and addiction workers’ request to waive fees for their clients to access an exercise program at the city’s Yara Centre. With the local YMCA closure (where exercise programs were provided free of charge for these clients) and no source of subsidized funding, many at-risk mental health patients are in a position where much needed exercise programming will not be available. As I am getting older, my political philosophies are changing, and I understand more the importance of looking after the less fortunate in our society. I am a firm believer that a chain is only as strong as its weakest link, and society is no different. Health Canada lists 12 social and economic influences on health, only a few of which are supported by tax-payer money. While Canadians have “free� access to many health services, rarely do we see subsidies for preventative, wellness programs. We have a federal government who removed tax credits for families with kids in sports soon after they were elected and are whispering the idea of a national pharma care program so all Canadians can get most medications for free. In other words, there is no public money to try and keep people off drugs, but plenty of money to give them drugs once they become diabetic, have high blood pressure, heart disease or develop mental illness. There is no arguing that exercise can

greatly improve mental health, even in clinically diagnosed cases. Our city council cannot and does not deny that. The question is really, who should pay for subsidy of exercise programs for the less fortunate if they cannot afford it themselves? The federal liberals have already shown their attitude for helping Canadians better afford exercise programs. One council member figures that waiving the fees would cost tax payers approximately 14 thousand dollars. I suspect the city wouldn’t get this money anyway as it is possible that these individuals could not join due to financial constraints. With the number of households in Moose Jaw, my math figures the subsidy would cost tax payers a buck and a half‌less than a cup of coffee. In a related situation in Iceland, the local government for the major city of Reykjavik, subsidizes a program that ensures every child has access to a sport or music program. This is the equivalent of $650 Canadian per Icelandic child. Now there is a government that prioritizes health equity in weaker populations. The results of their program are priceless. Whether it is youth, seniors, low income, those with physical disabilities or mental health challenges, we need to reduce our health inequities. The question is which level of government is going to step up?

Fire department to host open house during fire prevention week Moose Jaw Express Staff The Moose Jaw Fire Department (MJFD) is holding a community open house in early October as part of its celebrations of National Fire Prevention Week. The open house is scheduled for Wednesday, Oct. 9 at the South Hill Fire Hall, at 750 Lillooet Street West, from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. There are also tours booked for six elementary schools starting at 9 a.m. The theme for this year is “Not every hero wears a cape. Plan and practise your escape!” The fire department is teaming up with the National Fire Protection Association — the official sponsor of the week for more than 90 years — to promote this year’s fire prevention week, which runs from Oct. 6 to 12. In Canada, most fire deaths occur in the home, where people believe they are most safe, according to a news release. Canadian fire departments respond to about

25,600 structure fires per year, and in 2015, structure fires caused more than 1,400 injuries and almost 200 deaths.

Report from the Legislature

Lyle Stewart MLA Lumsden-Morse Saskatchewan’s economy is strong Lyle Stewart and more people are MLA, working in Lumsden-Morse the province than ever before, despite economic headwinds. August marked the 13th consecutive month of job growth in Saskatchewan with 13,000 new jobs year-over-year. Saskatchewan’s unemployment rate was the third lowest in the country at 5.1 per cent. Fast and reliable access to today’s digital economy contributes to strong communities. Better wireless service, particularly in rural areas, is a priority of the Government of Saskatchewan. Rural residents require access to fast and reliable services that are on par with urban areas, and SaskTel is working to fill in coverage gaps where they exist. As part of our government’s Wireless Saskatchewan initiative, SaskTel has been able to add 15 new macro towers, providing better coverage in places like busy provincial parks, along major highways, and in areas with little to no cellular coverage. These new macro towers are in addition to the previously

announced 103 small cell sites. Since 2010, SaskTel has completed more than 3,200 initiatives to enhance its wireless network that now boasts more than 800 cell sites across the province. SaskTel will continue to evaluate further expansion to better serve Saskatchewan. The new Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital (JPCH) in Saskatoon is a spectacular, state-of-the-art facility that will soon see Saskatchewan children and expectant mothers receive exceptional health care closer to home. Earlier this month, representatives from the provincial government, Saskatchewan Health Authority and the JPCH Foundation gathered with donors and community members to celebrate its completion, and the fact that Saskatchewan is no longer one of two provinces in Canada without a dedicated maternal and children’s hospital. This brand-new 176-bed facility puts Saskatchewan at the forefront of research and innovation, provides hope and healing, and marks culmination of a decade’s worth of hard work and determination that started with a simple vision: providing world-class health care for children and families for generations.

hundreds of community groups who have contributed to the hospital project in some way. They have hosted every kind of fundraiser imaginable and in doing so, displayed the very best of what our province has to offer. I am pleased to see that the tireless efforts of volunteers, donors, community members, the Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Foundation, Brynn Boback-Lane, Jim Pattison, and countless others all came together to make the dream of the new Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital a reality. The Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital was officially opened to patients on September 29, when all pediatric and maternal inpatients moved in from Royal University Hospital and new admissions are now being accepted. Thank you, Saskatchewan for supporting the work of the JPCH Foundation and for providing a home for hope.

“Situational awareness is a skill people need to use wherever they go,” Cathie Bassett, MJFD public education officer, said in the news release. “No matter where you are, look for available exits. If the alarm system sounds, take it seriously and exit the building immediately.” Fire prevention is something that should be practised all year round, agreed fire Chief Rod Montgomery. The MJFD encourages all households to develop a home escape plan together and practice it. The plan should include working smoke alarms on every level of the home, in every bedroom, and near all sleeping areas. It should also include two ways out of every room, usually a door and a window, with a clear path to an outside meeting place — such as a tree, light pole, or mailbox — that’s a safe distance from the home.

Roots of Empathy in Moose Jaw: Back to School Season! Moose Jaw’s Partners against Violence Committee brings together a number of local service agencies, as well as local RCMP and Moose Jaw Police to work towards building a safer community for all.

Fall is in full swing and the bustling “Back to School” season is settling into normal routines again. Since the fall of 2013, Instructors in our community have also packed bags getting ready to return to school, but instead of paper and pencils, these Instructors pack a large green blanket, colorful picture books, brightly colored baby toys and a sweet-faced baby doll. These are no ordinary Instructors; they are also joined by a newborn baby and parent in the classroom! Since October 2013, thirty-two infants have accompanied Roots of Empathy Instructors to meet with 772 elementary aged children in their classrooms throughout the city of Moose Jaw. Through the Roots of

Empathy program elementary aged children across our city have grown in their ability to feel empathy for one another and treat each other with respect. This program is a truly unique approach to the prevention of bullying because it is delivered in partnership with a baby and their parent(s) who visit the classroom every month for one school year. Roots of Empathy is an evidence-based program that has shown dramatic effect in reducing levels of aggression and violence among school children while raising social/emotional competence and increasing empathy. As the children follow the development of “their” baby, they develop new awareness and skills to last

a lifetime including: Emotional Literacy, Neuroscience, Temperament, Inclusion, Infant Safety & Development, Perspective Taking, Attachment / Attunement, Participatory Democracy and Violence Prevention. Roots of Empathy is offered in every province in Canada as well as on three continents around the world. It came to Saskatchewan in 2011 and Moose Jaw was the first city in Southern SK to adopt the program through strong local partnerships including the Partners Against Violence committee, Holy Trinity Catholic Schools, Prairie South School Division, Hillcrest Church and many others. Since opening in Moose Jaw, 31 pro-

grams have been delivered locally in 11 different schools, with over 770 students benefiting from the program. Both the Holy Trinity Catholic School and Prairie South School Divisions have participated in hosting the program as well as training Instructors to deliver Roots of Empathy. Classroom teachers, students and parents who have participated in the program agree that this is a wonderful way to help our students grow in their ability to recognize the humanity in each other and respond with compassion and empathy. This investment in our children and youth will last for years to come. Learn more about Roots of Empathy at

Local pageant winner moving on to international competition Larissa Kurz

Tristan Johnson England joined a number of other competitors in Toronto for the recent iteration of the Miss Globe Canada pageant — a competition completely out of her comfort zone that turned out to be a valuable experience. Johnson-England won Miss Saskatchewan Globe at the regional competition before she headed to the national stage, where she claimed runner-up for the Miss Globe Canada crown and was named Miss Tourism International Canada. The pageant focuses on encouraging confidence in young women, which Johnson-England found to be refreshing. With an autobody certificate and a background with the Army Cadets program, Johnson-England never considered herself the pageant type. “I wanted to push myself to do it because it’s not something that I, or anyone that really knows me, would think I would ever do,” said Johnson-England. “And the fact that I accomplished it, with titles, is absolutely phenomenal.” Criteria focused less on each contestant’s body type and physical appearance, but rather their confidence, personality, and speaking skills. Contestants took part in the usual pageant staples: interview, evening gown, swimsuit, and others, including talent. In keeping with her personal theme of breaking out of the box, Johnson-England took to the stage and did a routine of movie-character impersonations — Lilo and Stitch, Smeagle from Lord of the Rings, and even Alvin and the Chipmunks — for which she took third place. “That was an experience,” laughed Johnson-England. “I’ve never done that on a microphone, much less in a competition.” For Johnson-England, the whole pageant was an eye-opening experience. She feels like she broadened her own personal limitations after spending time among her

Tristan Johnson-England, named Miss Saskatchewan Globe and Miss Tourism International Canada at the 2019 competition. (supplied) fellow contestants, and is excited to continue her journey. “When I went into this pageant, I honestly didn’t think I was going to be up there at all,” said Johnson-England. “I believe that I’ve improved a lot, just in [confidence] alone.” Now, as the 2019-20 Miss Tourism International Canada, Johnson-England is set to travel overseas to Kuala Lum-

pur, Malaysia where she will compete in the international Miss Tourism pageant as the Canadian delegate. The pageant will last 19 days, from Oct. 22 to Nov. 10, and Johnson-England will be one of 50 delegates gathered. Over the course of the event, Johnson-England will take part in a number of different aspects of the competition, as well as travel to three districts of Malaysia and meet official delegates of the country. Besides the new experience, Johnson-England is looking forward to experiencing the food and also meeting a new group of pageant contestants to bond with, like she did in Toronto. “[Miss Canada Globe] is mainly being yourself and that’s something that, I have to say, I’m still blown away from,” said Johnson-England. “That was probably one of the best experiences, other than meeting all these other people from across Canada. We worked together, we helped each other as much as it was a competition.” Her trip begins on Oct. 17, which leaves Johnson-England with a handful of weeks to prepare for her international debut. Johnson-England will be hosting a Rib and Caesar supper at Chillers on Oct. 5, with a 50/50 draw and a raffle of donated items to help raise funds for her trip. She is also welcoming any additional support that Moose Jaw has to offer — whether through sponsorship or in the form of gowns, delegate gifts, and votes during the actual pageant. “There’s going to be a voting online portion,” said Johnson-England. “You can vote as many times as you want and that’s towards the People’s Choice award, which will help fast track me to the top five.” Tickets for Johnson-England’s supper fundraiser are available through her Facebook page or by contacting her at 1 (306) 313-9507, which is also where she can be contacted for any sponsorship interest.

Moose Jaw’s Wood celebrates 100th birthday Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

When you get to be 100 years old, you’re going to see a few changes over time. For Moose Jaw’s Carolyn Wood – who became a centenarian on Sept. 19 – the biggest change is one she sees around her all the time. “Everyone has grown up; I remember when everyone was little, now they’ve all grown up and I’ve shrunk,” Wood joked during a party to celebrate her 100th birthday at Moose Jaw Extendicare. Which is what will happen when you’ve lived long enough that the armistice that ended the First World War was barely even a year old when you came into the world. Wood was born in the Glen Elder region near Preeceville and grew up on a farm near Mazenod before moving to Winnipeg, where she met future husband Charles. Saskatchewan came calling once again shortly after and with the Second World War at its height in 1944, the young family moved to Moose Jaw. It was here Carolyn and Chuck raised their six kids, which turned into

no less than 33 grandchildren, great grand children and one great-great grandchild. Wood doesn’t have a secret to her longevity, but one thing is certain – a life well lived can lead to a long life and even success as you approach your second century. Take Carolyn for example: even at 93 she was still square dancing and more recently even won a card game at Extendicare. “I still like to have fun even though I can’t dance anymore,” Wood said. Much of her family was on hand Saturday to celebrate her birthday, with the party drawing over 50 people throughout the day, as relatives and well-wishers stopped by to say hello and enjoy some cake. And yes, there were even some little ones around, who Carolyn couldn’t help but point out. “See, everyone was small like them one time,” she said. “When I was working, I saved money to put all my kids through school, now they’re all grown and everyone is so tall.”

Carolyn Wood celebrated her 100th birthday at Moose Jaw Extendicare.

Pumpkin Harvest Festival closes out another successful season Hundreds take in annual Yara Community Gardens fundraising event Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

With the growing season drawing to a close, Yara Community Gardens could see the fruit -- and vegetables -- of their labour.

It’s been a successful summer for the Yara Community Gardens and the Pumpkin Harvest Festival was an opportunity to celebrate another great growing season. Hundreds of supporters took part in the festivities at the local garden plots next to the Bell Park baseball fields, taking in a variety of activities that were only enhanced by the beautiful weather throughout the day. The event was an overwhelming success according to Yara Community Gardens organizer Jeremy Zacharias, as patrons had a chance to sample

pumpkin chili, check out the wares from a handful of local vendors, visit with firefighters and their fire engine, and even pick up a balloon animal from Derf the Clown. The Gardens exist as an opportunity for those who might now have a yard of their own or are in need to grow their own food. Even on this particular day, a handful of gardeners were on hand working their plots, picking cucumbers, potatoes, carrots and even a pumpkin or two. All proceeds from the event go to Hunger in Moose Jaw.

MLA helps celebrate 50th anniversary of Saskatchewan’s flag Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Expres

MLA Warren Michelson (left) held an open house at his constituency office on Sept. 20 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Saskatchewan’s flag. Also on hand were Gail Hapanowicz, Coun. Heather Eby — to proclaim Sept. 20 as Saskatchewan Flag Day in Moose Jaw — and Sask. Party candidate Tim MacLeod. Photo courtesy Judy Hatfield

A large Saskatchewan flag fluttered in the breeze outside the office of Moose Jaw MLA Warren Michelson, as the community politician helped celebrate the flag’s 50th anniversary. Michelson held an open house on Sept. 20 to honour the flag’s five decades of existence in the province. Coffee, cookies and paper flags were on hand for visitors to take, while several pictures were laid showing the creator of the flag, Anthony Drake, with Michelson and with Percy Schmeiser, one of the men from the flag selection committee. “This is a special day,” Michelson said. “The flag is unique. It is simple. There are not a lot of details, but it says what needs to be said.” Honouring the province’s flag is significant, he added; the Government of Saskatchewan proclaimed Sunday, Sept. 22 as Saskatchewan Flag Day throughout the province. Michelson met Drake in 2016 when the flag creator came to Saskatchewan from England at the request of Hodgeville

Anthony Drake and MLA Warren Michelson visit the Moose Jaw air show when the event was held in July. Photo courtesy Gail Hapanowicz businesswoman Gail Hapanowicz. Drake had worked as a teacher in Hodgeville from 1967 to 1969; before he left, he sub-

mitted 13 designs for the flag contest. He and his wife returned to England before actually seeing the flag fly over Saskatchewan. Hapanowicz contacted Drake three years ago and invited him back, where he experienced an emotional moment seeing — for the first time — the flag he designed being raised, Michelson said. Drake and his wife returned to Saskatchewan this summer to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the flag. During his visit, Drake met Schmeiser from Bruno, Sask., the only surviving member of the committee that selected the flag design. Drake also spent time at the Moose Jaw air show with Michelson. “The flag is a symbol of pride and respect for the ideals that are a representation of our province … ,” Michelson wrote in a recent column in the Moose Jaw Express. “I am often stirred as I see the Saskatchewan flag fly above the Legislative building, thinking of how it represents who we are as a people of Saskatchewan.”

Chinese meat suspension costs Canadian industry $100 million By Ron Walter - For Agri-Mart Express AGRIMART

EXPRESS The temporary suspension of beef and pork exports to China has cost the industry $100 million in the two and-one-half months since the ban was imposed. The Canada Pork Council estimated the loss sustained since China stopped accepting the imports on June 25. The loss amounts to about 1.8 per cent of last year’s beef and pork exports. Canada exported $3.18 billion in pork products around the world last year with beef export pegged at $2.75 billion.

Beef and pork exports account for over half the $8.9 billion in farm cash receipts from livestock. Between January and April pork exports to China were worth $310 million. Beef exports to China in that period amounted to $64 million. The exports were suspended for so-called technical reasons similar to why canola exports were halted. But observers believe the suspension is merely a retaliatory measure and pressure on the Canadian government over the arrest of Meng Wanzou, chief technical officer for Chinese high tech firm Hauwei Technologies Inc.

She was arrested at the request of the United States Department of Justice on suspicion of breaking U.S. export laws. Her arrest was made according to a treaty between Canada and the United States. China immediately arrested two Canadian citizens on espionage charges. The matter has damaged relations between China and Canada. “Canadian pork and beef farmers and exporters have been patient and supported the government’s efforts to find a resolution to the issue,” says a Pork Council news release. “However, as the Canadian Food Inspection Agency’s representations that Cana-

da is a victim, not a culprit, have failed to resolve the matter, it becomes clear that bigger political issues are the true obstacles that the Canadian government must resolve.” The red meat industry in Canada supports 266,000 jobs. In July the Canadian government provided $6 million to expand and strengthen the Canadian pork market with $5 million to expand beef markets. Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@

Farming, farm-related jobs involve high technology skills By Ron Walter - For Agri-Mart Express

The days of farm workers slopping the AGRIMART hogs, cleaning maEXPRESS nure from pens and hucking hay bales are gone. Jobs in agriculture require increased skills and knowledge to operate $300,000 tractors, seed drills, and $500,000 combines. Today and in the future farm workers will need better skills to stay on the job. Farmers will use new technologies that require new skills, for example, installing and maintaining software on farm machines. “Without trained workers agriculture will be left behind,” Stuart Cullum, president of Olds Agriculture Col-

lege, told the recent conference of the Canadian Agriculture Human Resources Council. While previous revolutions in the ag industry were based on growth of high yielding crops and genetically modified crops, the third revolution will focus on use of technology in farm decisions, management and environmental matters. Technology skills on the farm will be required in a range of work fields from supply of inputs, seeding, spraying to harvest, marketing as well as equipment technologies like drones and self-operating machines. Jobs vary in fields from mechanics and software engineering to analyzing mountains of data. According to the World Economic Forum leading technologies in the next three years will involve analyzing data, internet-based marketing, cloud computing and

virtual reality. Technology skills are already in such high demand about 40 per cent of global employers have a hard time finding skilled workers now. Canadian farmers are adapting operations to technology. Seventy per cent of farmers in the age category from 25 to 59 reported using technology on the farm in the 2016 Census of Agriculture. Just about 50 per cent of older farmers also used technology. Cullum said the Old College is trying to adapt and retrain older workers. Ron Walter can be reached at

As a child there was no better treat than to help prepare homemade doughnuts, then to shake the doughnut holes in the cinnamon and sugar topping. This household hasn’t enjoyed those homemade cake doughnuts and holes for many years. Now the doughnuts made at this home are baked in the oven, offering a different taste, if not the same childhood excitement. ••• Walnut Chocolate Doughnuts 1 cup whole wheat flour 1 tbsp. baking powder 1/4 tsp. salt 1/4 cup coconut sugar 1/4 cup cocoa powder 1 tsp. vanilla powder 1/4 cup walnuts, coarsely chopped 1/4 cup plus 2 tbsps. milk 2 tbsps. orange juice 1 egg 3 tbsps. unsweetened applesauce 1 tbsp. canola oil icing sugar Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.

Is Quebec part of Canada or is Canada part of Quebec? by Richard Dowson, Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, Canada

Hey Canada! Who’s really in charge? An essay about Quebec without reference to Crude Oil, Natural Gas or Pipelines. Late 20th Century Quebec leaders didn’t want to be part of Canada. They held two referendums to separate – 1980 and the Jacques (pure laine) Parizeau led October 1995 that missed by less than 1%. How is Quebec Different? Quebec Flower The fleur-de-lis, the provincial flower on the flag is the only non-Canadian provincial flower. Quebec has make the ‘Blue Flag Iris’, that grows wild in Quebec, the Provincial Flower. It sort-of looks like the ‘fleur-de-lis’ but the fleur-de-lis that adorns the Quebec flag. The fleurs-de-lis is a symbol of French speaking people and their kings and is associated with the Virgin Mary and the Catholic Church. The ‘Bleu Flag Iris’ has no historic significance. Fête Nationale Canada celebrates Canada July 1, a national holiday. Quebec celebrates Quebec at their ‘Fête Nationale’ or Fête de la Saint-Jean-Baptiste on June 24, Quebec’s National Holiday. It is coordinated by the “Mouvement national des Québécoises et des Québécois”. Fête de la Saint-Jean-Baptiste has been a celebrated holiday in Quebec since 1834. Government of Quebec Laws are past by the Quebec National Assembly (Assemblée nationale du Québec). Two current controversial laws are Bill 21 that bans teachers, police and certain specified public servants from wearing religious symbols while working. No such law

20th Anniversary Tour to

exists in Canada. It is popular and is not challenged for fear of provoking Quebecers. The other controversial law is the abolition of all school boards including the nine English School Board which are mostly in western Quebec. Current Government Coalition Avenir Québec or CAQ is led by Premier François Legault. He believes in greater ‘autonomy’ for Quebec – but not necessarily separation. Culture Historical French ancestry is a big deal. The rest of Canada is ‘inclusive’ meaning all cultures are celebrated. Quebec is different. Pure Laine (Pure Wool) This is a French term meaning your ancestry is exclusively French-Canadian, or Old Stock. This makes certain individuals ‘distinct’ in Quebec society. Immigrants or people with a non-French name can never reach ‘Pure Laine’ status. Quebec Motto ‘Je me souviens’ – It is stamped on the Quebec vehicle licence plate. It means, “We do not forget, and will never forget, our ancient lineage, traditions and memories of all the past.” All Canadian vehicle plates, except Quebec have slogans that describe their province. Ours is ‘Land of the Living Skies’. ‘Je me souviens’ pays homage to ‘pure laine’. Immigration The Canada–Quebec Accord of 1991 gave Quebec its own Immigration Policy. Quebec has the exclusive right to choosing immigrants and refugees still living in their own countries. Folks walking ‘across-theborder’ are usually sent to Ontario. Pension Quebec has its own Pension Plan. It is not part of the Canada Pension Plan. Language French with rules limiting the use of other language on signs.

English in School There are nine English School Boards in Quebec, mostly in the west. Most schools are French that teach English as a second language. Civil Law Civil Law (real estate – divorce etc.) is regulated by French-heritage civil law – originating with the Napoleonic Code. The rest of Canada uses British Common Law. Electricity Cost Cheap! Cheap! The lowest in North America. In 2018 Hydro-Québec stated that in Montréal, residential customers pay 7.13¢ per kilowatt-hour (kWh), compared to 11.42¢ in Vancouver and 13.24¢ in Toronto. In Saskatchewan my Residential Rate is: $0.14228 per kWh, twice that in Quebec. Transfer Payments and Electricity Keeping electricity rate low means lower reported income for Hydro-Québec. This translates into higher transfer payments. Low electricity rates are attractive to industry. Cost of Day Care in Montreal $7.55 a day or $151 a month. Cost of Day Care in Regina $$620.00 per Month Canadian Constitution: Quebec has never signed or approved the Canadian Constitution Conclusion: Canada is part of Quebec, with fewer rights! If Transfer Payments are considered, Western Canada is a Vassal State of Quebec. The term ‘vassal state’ comes from Feudal times when a state owed ‘obligations’ to a superior state. Jacques Parizeau wanted sovereign association with Canada – an independent country with trading and economic agreements with Canada. Something like countries in the European Union. Why would Quebec Premier François Legault want sovereignty; he’s got Autonomy. If Jacques Parizeau returned today and saw what Quebec controls he would think he won, the 1995 Referendum. Federal Politicians do not understand Quebec. They don’t understand the strength and role Quebec culture plays in politics and how adroit Quebec politician are. Except Trudeau, they are outsiders who rely on the Quebec vote to gain Federal power. Think about that. I admired Jacques Parizeau. Maybe it is time to consider his proposal, after all, Quebec is in charge.

Tories’ Military Covenant Important for Moose Jaw-Lake Centre-Lanigan

Tom Lukiwski Report

MP Moose Jaw-Lake Centre-Lanigan On September 25th, Tom Lukiwski, Conservative candidate for Moose Jaw-Lake Centre-Lanigan, emphasized the value to the Tom Lukiwski MP Moose Jaw-Lake Moose Jaw and Dundurn areas Centre-Lanigan of Andrew Scheer’s campaign pledge to establish a new Military Covenant to protect Veterans. “Our constituency is home to 15 Wing, CFD Dundurn as well as many Veterans, so this is a policy that is very close to home to the interests of people in our communities,” Lukiwski said.

A few days before, Scheer announced a comprehensive plan to deliver more help to Canada’s Veterans in a timely and respectful manner. 1. Enshrine, in legislation, a Military Covenant between the Government of Canada and all Canada’s Veterans. This will guarantee that every Veteran is treated with respect and is provided services in a timely manner. 2. Clear the current backlog of Veterans’ benefit applications within 24 months. 3. Create a reliable, dependable pension system that, unlike the Liberal status quo, is fair to Canada’s most disabled Veterans. 4. Strengthen transition services to support discharged or retired Canadian Armed Forces members. 5. Strike an independent inquiry to provide answers about Canadian Armed Forces members who were adminis-

tered mefloquine. 6. Provide more service dogs to Canadian Veterans in their communities. 7. Put vital commemoration projects, like the National Memorial for Canada’s War in Afghanistan, back on track. “Justin Trudeau gave terrorist Omar Khadr $10.5 million. He was willing to break the law to help out the lobbyists from SNC-Lavalin. But when Canada’s Veterans asked for help, he said ‘You’re asking for more than we are able to give,’” Lukiwski said. “That sort of dismissive attitude towards Veterans will end under an Andrew Scheer government. A Conservative government will ensure that Veterans receive the respect they deserve.”

Trudeau exposes himself as the one we can’t trust

Maybe Trudeau should have dressed up as a clown at that party in 2001. It would have suited him better By Maddie Di Muccio - Contributor Troy Media

Pierre Elliott Trudeau’s defining accomplishment as prime minister was the creation of Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Regardless of the politics surrounding the creation of the document, it embodies Canadian democracy in the highest form. The senior Trudeau’s intention was to create a “just society” – a term that was his trademark during the federal election campaign of 1968. He said “the rights of minorities will be safe from the whims of intolerant majorities. The just society will be one in which those regions and groups which have not fully shared in the country’s affluence will be given a better opportunity.” He would later use the philosophy as a model for the charter, and when he championed diversity and immigration. Governing on this model made him one of Canada’s most iconic prime ministers. Decades later, his son Justin Trudeau piggybacked on his father’s legacy to champion the rights of Canadians in a just society, trumpeting inclusion and tolerance. It’s easy to imagine the philosophical debates the young Trudeau grew up around. His father was an intelligent man, a lawyer and human rights champion. The young-

er Trudeau attended private schools, then McGill University, where he was a member of the debate club. So how could the son of Pierre Trudeau so blatantly disregard notions of equality as a young man? After Time Magazine released photos of him dressed as brown-face, Justin Trudeau sheepishly revealed that he dressed up as Aladdin and painted his face and hands black – but because it took place in 2001, when he was just 29, he didn’t know any better. And he admitted it wasn’t the only time. There was a high school photo. And then a video obtained by Global News showed a young Trudeau dancing and sticking his tongue out, face painted black. In a later media scrum, Trudeau disclosed there could be more instances and said he would deal with them “on a case by case basis.” Were his actions racist? Trudeau says they were. He apologized and explained that in 2001, he wasn’t aware such behaviour was offensive. Later he said the “layers of privilege” in his upbringing resulted in his ignorance about why it might be unkind to paint your face



black or brown. Whether Canadians believe him in this instance – or even accept that dressing up in black-face is racist behaviour – isn’t what will cause Trudeau’s political downfall. It will be that his entire political career has been focused on pointing the finger at his opponents and calling them untrustworthy. Now it’s been revealed that he’s the one we shouldn’t trust. It will be about the whopping failure of a Liberal campaign strategy that presents the Conservatives as white, privileged, uneducated, intolerant and racist. Those are the very things, by some spectacular manifestation of karma, that Justin Trudeau admitted he has been. It will be that he created himself in his father’s image of diversity – an image that many Canadians looked up to – and then failed them. And it will be that his breathtaking hypocrisy was unveiled at a pivotal moment in his career. There are several victims in this political tragedy. The first are brown- and black-skinned Canadians. NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh’s address to Canadians was emotional and eloquent. Imagine how any dark-skinned

Canadian would feel staring at photographs of their inclusive-championing prime minister, face painted and foolishly grinning. Imagine how that betrayal would translate into deep hurt. The next victims are the Canadian voters. For the remainder of this election, they won’t be able to hear about policy. Instead, the dialogue will be about scandal, because the media knows that’s what gets attention. And the last victim is the Liberal Party of Canada, which has suffered at the hands of its own leader. Trudeau has indicated he won’t step down. Instead, he’d like to use this as a teaching moment about Liberal values. But this election shouldn’t be determined by partisan stripes, because sometimes what we do – or don’t do – says more about who we are than does our party affiliation. Maybe Trudeau should have dressed up as a clown at that party in 2001. It would have suited him better.

Re: City Budget Survey With university level statistical courses, I was very annoyed/irritated by the inaccuracies associated with the City’s Budget Survey and resulting conclusions! There are critical criteria that should to be met in any statistical survey in order for it to provide a confident level of accuracy: • The survey must be prepared by independent professionals – Training Development Officers - who ensure the questions are not biased, misleading or tainted in any way, • The survey must have responses from people based on appropriate percentages of all income levels/demographics, • An appropriate percentage (number) of survey respondents from each income level/demographic – likely lower to middle income - must be established to make the survey valid and this is best established by a qualified unbiased statistician, and • In order to achieve accurate feedback from all demographics the survey author must ensure that responses are from the targeted Demographics. The survey conducted by City Hall did not follow any of the above methodologies! The survey questions were crafted by City administration, the survey did not target a spectrum of city demographics, and many residents – particularly low income and older people - do not have computers (are not on-line)! Failing

to follow the basic criteria above makes this on-line survey misleading, potentially biased and virtually useless for it’s intended purpose, which appears to be testing the citizenry mood for Tax increases or a Levy! What the survey does appear to have accomplished is to take inaccurate information and coalesce it into conclusions that City Hall can use to ratify their published agenda for increasing Taxation and/or instituting a property levy! Probably like many, I was not even aware of this ridiculous survey that lasted 4 weeks! In addition, I find it incredulous, given the number of fixed, and low-income in the city, that a large number would rationally support a levy or large tax increase! The idea of people accepting of a tax increase is made even more unbelievable when recently The Globe and Mail stated that according to the Fraser Institute the average Canadian Family in 2018 paid more in taxes ($40,000) than they did on Clothing, Food and Shelter ($32,000)! It seems to me that every year we continually get excessive – greater than inflation – tax or deceptive billing increases, larger City bureaucracy, big salaries at City Hall and little to no improvement in our services! This is not sustainable and needs to change! Michael Dolan, HBSc.

Request for free Yara Centre memberships deferred to budget discussions Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

The Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA) wants to use the Yara Centre free-of-charge for one of its wellness programs, but it will only learn if this is possible once the 2020 municipal budget is finalized. During its Sept. 23 regular meeting, city council voted 6-1 to refer the request to the 2020 budget discussions. Coun. Crystal Froese was opposed. City administration had initially recommended that the request for waiver of fees be denied. Background Megan Welwood, a mental health therapist with the SHA, submitted a letter asking that rental fees at the sports complex be waived for its wellness metabolic exercise program. Welwood explained that the program addresses the increased rates of metabolic syndrome — such as increased blood pressure, high blood sugar, and obesity — in clients experiencing serious mental illnesses. The program was offered at the Moose Jaw YMCA since 2017, which provided free access for clients participating twice a week in the exercise and education program. The YMCA’s Opportunity Fund supported this initiative. However, with the organization’s closure, the SHA needed a new home for its program. The SHA wanted free access to the Yara Centre on Tuesdays from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. and Thursdays from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. The program would use the aerobic and strength equipment along with access to the turf field. There are 15 adults who use the program; the SHA want-

ed a free adult membership for each of them. The cost to accommodate that would be $761.25 per month, or $11,418.75 per year, since the rates for the centre have been set for 2019-20. The wellness metabolic exercise program runs 10 months. There have been 52 people who have been referred to the program since its inception, with 28 having completed it. Council discussion The program is seeking a new partnership, Welwood told city council during a presentation. Clients experience many barriers to exercise — such as social isolation, poverty, and severe anxiety about stepping foot in a gym — and the hope is to continue the program with the municipality to ensure clients remain active and address their metabolic risk factors. By including stretching, balance activities, strength training and cardio in the program, this has produced great results, she added. This included an increase in self-esteem, confidence, community spirit and reduction in social isolation. “We can all agree that (sound) mental health is an important thing for personal well-being and in our community,” said Coun. Chris Warren. He pointed out that the provincial government normally covers funding for anything related to health programs. He wondered if the program leaders had approached the province for funding or looked for any grant-funding

programs. Welwood replied they had not reached out to the province. She added they approached other fitness centres with similar amenities to see if a partnership could be struck, but had no luck. Money contributed to the YMCA’s Opportunity Fund came from fundraising initiatives by the Y and donations from the business community, said Warren. The fund was for many projects, including to support membership applications from low-income families. “I would be a little bit concerned that if we grant this waiver of fees, there would be more groups that the Y funded previously that would come to us,” he continued. Council received applications in the past to have the Yara Centre absorb YMCA memberships, but turned those down. The parks and recreation department subsidize 50 per cent of all programming — or $1.5 million — using tax dollars, Warren added. The remaining 50 per cent comes from fees the municipality charges. Grant funding could create opportunities for community groups in the future, said Mayor Fraser Tolmie. But what council wants to do is look at every group asking for funding and conduct a fair process. He thought this request should be discussed during budget deliberations when looking at how to support the community and its collective health. The next regular council meeting is Oct. 15.

‘Moose war’ generated $7.4M in media attention for Moose Jaw Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express The “moose war” between Stor-Elvdal, Norway and the City of Moose Jaw was a marketing bonanza for Canada’s Most Notorious City, as the monetary value of all news coverage totalled $7.4 million. The birth of the moose feud — or an international moose beef as the Norwegians dubbed it — began on Jan. 11 of this year, as Moose Jaw sought to reclaim the title of the “World’s Largest Moose Statue” from the municipality of Stor-Elvdal. It took nearly three months for the moose war to end, when a “moosarandum of understanding (MOA)” was signed between the two municipalities. So was all the media coverage worth the attention? That’s the question city hall wanted answered, so the communications department hired Canadian compa-

ny Meltwater for $1,060 to measure the online metrics of how many times the phrase “Mac the Moose” was used in media stories and social media feeds in that two-month period, explained communications manager Craig Hemingway. Hemingway told city council during its Sept. 23 regular meeting. Between unique news stories and social media mentions, the phrase “Mac the Moose,” in relation to the Moose War, was seen around the world 993,000 times. According to data from Meltwater, between Jan. 11 and March 10, there were seven spikes in media exposure when reporting on the moose war. The largest spike occurred on Feb. 28, when more than 200 media mentions occurred after Linda Henriksen, deputy mayor of

Stor-Elvdal, visited the community. The majority of unique news stories produced during the two months — 938 — occurred in Canada, followed by the United States of America (91), Sweden (37), the United Kingdom (25) and Norway (24). Stories were also printed in Spain, Australia, Romania, India, China and Russia, Hemingway reported. Major United States publications such as the New York Times and Washington Post ran stories. BBC International interviewed Mayor Fraser Tolmie and Henriksen for nearly eight minutes, while late-night comedian Stephen Colbert devoted part of a segment to this matter. The total monetary value of the news coverage was $6.3 million, including an-

other $1.1 million in social media value. The number of news stories helped Moose Jaw tell its story properly with City hall using the data from Meltwater as part of its submission for an award it won with the Economic Development Association of Canada. Beyond the marketing value, “immeasurable value was realized” from the effect on the community, Hemingway said. This was a collaborative effort among the mayor’s office, Tourism Moose Jaw and city administration, plus community groups, schools, 15 Wing, the WHL Warriors and businesses. After comments, council then voted 6-1 to receive and file Hemingway’s report. Coun. Brian Swanson was opposed.

City Hall Council Notes New GM of Mosaic Place has experience attracting big-name musicians Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Having attracted big-name bands and events to a small town in British Columbia, Ryan MacIvor will now attempt to bring similar acts to Mosaic Place and make Moose Jaw a destination attraction. During its Sept. 23 regular meeting, city council voted 6-1 to approve the appointment of MacIvor as the general manager of Mosaic Place, based on a recommendation from Spectra Venue Management Services, which council hired this past summer to run the building. Coun. Brian Swanson was opposed. MacIvor has more than 10 years of experience as the general manager of the EnCana Events Centre in Dawson Creek, B.C., explained city manager Jim Puf-

falt. He has attracted several events both large and small, such as KISS, the Dixie Chicks, Motley Crew, Def Leppard and Carrie Underwood. He has also brought in events for hockey, curling and skating. “As the general manager of an isolated events centre, he was instrumental in creating their own events,” Puffalt said. “The City of Moose Jaw and Mosaic Place are fortunate to have a candidate with these credentials as we move forward with Spectra Venue Management Services.” MacIvor told city council he had spent the last eight days in Moose Jaw becoming familiar with the community. He planned to fly back to Dawson Creek soon to pack

company. We’re excited to work with you in partnership and collaborate in terms of opportunities … ,” MacIvor said. This includes creating new events and opportunities for the community, for Mosaic Place and the Ford Curling Centre. Although he had been in Moose Jaw for a total of 10 days, MacIvor had already reached out to the WHL’s Moose Jaw Warriors, the different naming-rights partners at Mosaic Place, and staff there to introduce himself and Spectra and start the process of moving the building forward. He thought it was time to make Mosaic Place a “formidable venue” within Central Canada.

City hall denied approval to appeal decision made by property board Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

City administration wanted to challenge a decision made by the Development Appeals Board over a building project, but city council went in a different direction due to a lack of clear information. During its Sept. 23 regular meeting, council voted unanimously to receive and file the report administration presented. Administration, however, had wanted approval to appeal to the Saskatchewan Municipal Board over a decision the appeals board made about a project at 459 Lillooet Street West. Background Nearly a month ago, the appeals board approved a building project even though the project contravened the zoning bylaw. Sam Shaw, on behalf of property owner Sammual Morrison, intended to build a garage that is 24 feet by 68 feet and 147 square metres (1,632 square feet) in size. This is contrary to the 83.6 square metres (900 square feet) in the zoning bylaw. City hall received Shaw’s development permit in June and denied it that same

month. Shaw appealed the decision to the appeals board, which granted the appeal on Aug. 30. City administration thought this new decision should be appealed since it would set a precedent for future appeals, explained Michelle Sanson, director of planning and development. The Development Appeals Board heard a similar appeal for this property on Aug. 15, 2017 and denied the application on Aug. 21, 2017, Sanson told council. Shaw appealed to the Saskatchewan Municipal Board, which upheld the decision. Council discussion There were letters from neighbouring property owners indicating they were not opposed to the project, said Coun. Dawn Luhning. Since they were not opposed, she wondered who was being adversely affected. Provincial regulations say there are three tests the appeals board had to pass when making a decision, said Sanson. The tests include ensuring the approval

is consistent with the restrictions on the neighbouring properties in the same area; amount to a relaxation of the zoning bylaw that defeats the intent of the bylaw; and injuriously affect to the neighbouring properties. “We don’t think it passed the last two tests,” she added. Consistency is important, agreed Coun. Scott McMann. However, the report indicated the appeals board had given approvals before to eight property owners who had buildings with combined floor spaces of more than 900 square feet, including one property with buildings totalling 2,000 square feet, he continued. He wondered if city hall appealed those decisions. Those were not appealed since the total floor spaces listed were for multiple buildings on the property, Sanson explained. City administration wanted to appeal this particular decision since it thought the proposed building was too large.

McMann wondered what the concern was if there were three buildings with a large floor space versus one building, considering they all took up space on the lot. “Now we are getting into a really large accessory building in a residential area and it impacts the residential character,” said Sanson. “Yes, the size total would be similar, but the aesthetics would be different when we have smaller multiple buildings.” Since this property at Lillooet Street is a double lot — at 100 feet by 125 feet — Luhning wondered how much property the buildings covered. Sanson replied that accessory buildings can cover up to 40 per cent of a lot; the accessory buildings on this lot were under that allowed percentage. With no neighbours opposing the project and the current buildings covering fewer than 40 per cent of the property, Luhning moved that city administration’s report be received and filed.

City Hall Council Notes Of only 212 persons who responded to a survey on city website, some support ‘modest’ property tax increases and an infrastructure levy A majority of respondents to a municipal survey believe it is acceptable to have a “modest property tax increase,” an infrastructure levy, and continued increases to funding of protective services. Of 212 people who responded to a 12-question City of Moose Jaw survey during late August and early September, 173 people — or 82 per cent — agreed with city council’s direction to maintain services with a modest property tax increase or expansion of programs where necessary. Furthermore, 167 people — or 79 per cent — said they agreed with council’s decision to continue to support the current level of funding for protective services, or even increase funding to police and firefighters. Lastly, 114 people — or 54 per cent — indicated they agreed with council’s decision to develop a dedicated pavement rehabilitation infrastructure levy. The results of the survey were presented to city council during its Sept. 23 regular meeting. Council voted 6-1 to receive and file the report. Coun. Brian Swanson was opposed. Survey results Question 1 Participants were asked to rank programs and services from highest to lowest in importance. The most important categories were: roadways, waterworks infrastructure, wastewater infrastructure, recreation services, parks, a tie between economic development and planning and development, the landfill, and transit. Question 2 The survey asked if participants would be supportive of a levy of $100 per year per property dedicated to infrastructure renewal projects such as pavement rehabilitation. Of 211 respondents, 114 (54 per cent) were in favour while 97 (46 per cent)

Eighty-one people (38.39 per cent) said they need their vehicle for their job, 63 people (29.86 per cent) said the buses run too infrequently and it’s quicker to drive, 60 people (28.44 per cent) said other and seven people (3.32 per cent) said buses don’t start early enough in the day. Of the 60 people who said other, some reasons they gave included they walked or walking was faster; some bus drivers are never on time; they don’t need the service; there was no bus in their area; and the routes were too circuitous and slow. Question 12 Survey participants were asked what one thing Moose Jaw transit could change to entice them to take a bus. Of the 163 people who answered, some of the answers included adding routes including to the Yara Centre, increased frequency, a better schedule, more efficient and smaller buses, going back to 30-minute routes, and lower fees. “Sitting and watching the driver play on her phone drives me batty,” one respondent wrote.

Councillor, mayor disagree over validity of survey results Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

One city councillor says a recent municipal survey is not statistically valid since so few people answered it, but the mayor argues the people who responded are engaged in the community. City administration presented a report to council during the Sept. 23 regular meeting that summarized the results of a survey posted to the City of Moose Jaw website from mid-August to early September. The survey attracted 212 respondents, who were asked to answer 12 questions ranging from taxation to infrastructure to transit. Council voted 6-1 to receive the report. Coun. Brian Swanson was opposed. Council discussion “I do realize that the term ‘public consultation’ has been elevated to motherhood and apple pie, but 212 respondents out of voting population of 22,000 is less

than one per cent,” said Swanson. This survey, he continued, is not statistically valid since anyone — including municipal employees — could have answered the questionnaire. Restrictions should have been applied on who can participate. The fact city administration created the questions and did not include city council in formulating them was also questionable. Swanson cautioned against seeing this survey as an indication that all residents support council’s decisions. He pointed out 212 people responded to a survey issued during the final weeks of summer. “I would take these (questions) with a large grain of salt,” he added. “When we had the opportunity to decide if we wanted to engage in this, I voted against it because I don’t feel the results … tell you anything in a statistically valid way.”

This survey might not be a statistical analysis, but it does provide a snapshot in time of the residents who wanted to participate, said Coun. Chris Warren. He was thrilled that council had the opportunity to hear residents’ concerns. Warren disagreed that council had no input into the questions, pointing out council has had numerous discussions during the last few months about what it wants to do with the budget, how the budget process should look, what should be included in it, what should be considered important, and even whether to include levies. “We have been striving toward public engagement at city hall and having this survey is important,” said Mayor Fraser Tolmie. “We always have to take the survey results we get and understand that (respondents) are a fractal of the community we represent.”

Mac’s rack coming back Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Get ready Moose Javians, Mac the Moose’s massive rack is coming back to help the critter reclaim his crown as the world’s tallest moose statue. More than four months after Mac shed his antlers, his new pair of bony horns

will soon sprout. At the last City Council meeting, it was revealed that installation happens on Thursday, Oct. 10th. “Since this is the first time the contractor has installed antlers on Mac, it’s likely

going to take 10 hours from start to finish to complete this project,” executive director of Tourism Moose Jaw Jacki L’Heureux-Mason said. “What’s positive about this project is 70 per cent of the working materials were donated.”

Tourism Moose Jaw is inviting residents to come for a barbecue at the office starting at 11 a.m on October 10th. This will also act as a home renovation-style reveal.

City hall officer handled two complaints from residents last year Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Moose Jaw’s administrative review officer handled two complaints last year, resolving one matter peacefully and providing a controversial recommendation on another matter that city council ultimately rejected. David Foley provided his annual report to city council during its Sept. 23 regular meeting. Council voted unanimously on a motion to receive and file the document. The first complaint that Foley handled dealt with the installation and billing of a three-inch water meter at the Peanut Hills Campground, his report explained. The issue had been developing for almost two years, with business owner Rick Campbell suggesting a referral be made to the administrative review officer on Feb. 27, 2018. Foley resolved the matter during a preliminary investigation by holding a meeting between the complainant and city administration. A report was later submitted to council about the issue. The second complaint Foley handled revolved around the billing of phase 1 of the cast iron water main replacement project. He explained that the issue was a longstanding matter and complicated but related to the concern of seven taxpayers who believed their bills for the completed work were incorrectly calculated. “A plethora of documentation was reviewed — more than once — before I determined that the bills, as calculated, were correct,” he said. Foley found that municipal representatives had acted appropriately and had made genuine efforts to resolve the issue. He ultimately “made the controversial recommendation” to make a full and final settlement to those affected with a 10-per-cent goodwill reduction on the amount owed. A positive outcome was achieved around the first complaint and without an adversarial approached, he added. The second matter was not actually resolved since council chose to receive and file his judgment report and recommendations, thereby declining to take action on the report. Foley added that he appreciated the support he received from city hall, particularly from several members of city administration. The number of complaints Foley has addressed over the years has been quite low, said city manager Jim Puffalt. For example, Foley handled three complaints in 2003, one in 2006, and three in 2007 and 2017.

amendment was to close streets and lanes within the park to facilitate the consolidation and sale of municipal land to Carpere, in agreement with the offer to purchase. Land specifically cited to be affected includes NW and SW 27-16-26 W2M, NE 28-16-26 W2M, and SW 34-16-26 W2M.

The path to the 2022 Olympics includes the Scotties Moose Jaw Express Staff

Curling Canada has determined the path to the 2022 Winter Olympic Games in Beijing and the path includes the 2020 Scotties, which will be held in Moose Jaw this February. Canada’s four-player men’s and women’s teams for Beijing will be determined at the 2021 Tim Hortons Roar of the Rings, which will be held Nov. 27 to Dec. 5 at the SaskTel Centre in Saskatoon. The mixed doubles team will be decided at the 2022 Canadian Mixed Doubles Trials, Jan. 3 to 9. The Tim Hortons Roar of the Rings format will be unchanged from the 2017 event in Ottawa — a nine-team round-robin draw for both men and women, with the top three teams reaching the playoffs. The first-place team in the round robin will go straight to the championship final while the second- and third-place teams will play in the semi-final. In order to make it to the trials, teams can qualify in a number of ways. This includes: • 2019 Home Hardware Canada Cup champion (2019-20 Canadian Team Ranking System [CTRS] total); • 2020 Scotties Tournament of Hearts in Moose Jaw/Tim Hortons Brier champion (2019-20 CTRS total); • 2020 Home Hardware Canada Cup champion (2020-21 CTRS total); • 2021 Scotties Tournament of Hearts/Tim Hortons Brier

champion (2020-21 CTRS total); • Two-year CTRS total, 2019-20, 2020-21 seasons (highest non-qualified team); • Two-year CTRS total, 2019-20, 2020-21 seasons (highest non-qualified team); • 2020-21 CTRS single-season total (highest non-qualified team); • Road to the Roar Pre-Trials qualifier; • Road to the Roar Pre-Trials qualifier. Canadian champions won’t be required to win a medal at the world championship in order to secure their Trials berth. The other seven entries for the Road to the Roar Pre-Trials will also come from the 2020-21 CTRS standings.

Canada will enter the 2022 Winter Olympics as reigning mixed doubles gold-medallists after the tandem of Kaitlyn Lawes and John Morris prevailed in 2018 at Pyeongchang, South Korea, where mixed doubles curling made its debut as an Olympic medal discipline. Canada will still have to qualify for the Beijing Olympics in all three disciplines. China as the host country has already qualified, while the 10-team fields in each discipline will be mostly determined by the combined results of the 2020 and 2021 world men’s, women’s and mixed doubles championships, with seven countries qualifying in each discipline. The final two qualifying countries will come out of lastchance Olympic qualifying events, scheduled for December 2021. and are Official Media Partners of the 2020 Scotties Tournament of Hearts being held in Moose Jaw, February 14th - 23rd.

Yorkton, Estevan post wins in high school football action Raiders down Peacock 36-0, Elecs take 35-0 victory over Vanier Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The Yorkton Raiders continued to steamroll through the local loop with a commanding 37-0 victory over the Peacock Tornadoes in the first game of the day this past weekend before the Estevan Elecs picked up one of their first wins in team history at Gutheridge Field, defeating the Vanier Vikings 35-0. Yorkton remained the only undefeated team in the league at 3-0, while Peacock fell to 2-2. Estevan, meanwhile, improved to 1-2 on the season, Vanier fell to 0-4. Yorkton 36, Peacock 0 Things were interesting through the first half, as the Tornadoes were able to largely stymie the potent Raiders attack, holding Yorkton to only nine points until the final minute of the second quarter. Tornadoes head coach Bert Redstone had hoped to see a better overall performance from his troops against a team they knew would be tough and was left disappointed with the overall effort. The Tornadoes managed only four first downs and a total of 58 yards of offence “Yorkton is a good team, obviously, and we knew that coming in,” he said. “We saw their film and saw what they do, they come hard and we tried to prepare our guys for that. But I think with the youth have, I don’t want to make excuses for the guys, it’s the fourth game in and everyone has to step up and play some football.

Warriors rally in third to defeat Wheat Kings Korczak scores with 44 seconds left as Tribe take 3-2 win at Mosaic Place Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

It might be only four games into a 68game schedule, but the Moose Jaw Warriors is the team to watch this season. Take the two games this past weekend for an example: coming off an impressive 5-0 win over Brandon on Friday, the Warriors rallied with two goals in the third period – including the game-winner with 44 seconds left – to take a 3-2 win over the Wheat Kings on Saturday night at Mosaic Place. Ryder Korczak continued his impressive start to the season with a three-point night, including the game-winning goal. The just-tuned 17-year-old Yorkton product drove to the net as linemate Carson Denomie carried the puck into the left corner, picked up a perfect pass in the slot and slid a shot home through Ethan Kruger’s fivehole to give the Warriors their first lead of the game. “He was giving up rebounds, so we were trying to get to the net because that’s where we’re going to get our goals,” Korczak said of his strategy on the play. “You can’t score from the outside, so if you go to the net you’re going to get goals.” Korczak also drew assists on Jadon Joseph’s second-period marker and Keenan Taphorn’s game-tying goal earlier in the period, giving him two goals, seven assists and nine points on the season. The significance? As of Saturday night, Ryder

Warriors forward Ryder Korczak looks to find space in the Brandon zone. Korczak is the leading scorer in the Western Hockey League. He also needs only six more points to match his total over 50 games with Calgary last season. Denomie is also off to an impressive start and is fourth in league scoring with three goals and seven points, while Alarie is tied for second in rookie scoring with a goal and four points. The Wheat Kings got on the board first, when former Warrior forward Luka Burzan picked up the puck off a turnover in front of the Tribe net and slid a shot five-

AAA Warriors defeat Tisdale in season opener

Late Trojans comeback sends game into overtime before Warriors take 5-4 victory Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The Moose Jaw AAA Wa r r i o r s came away with a win in their Saskatchewan Midget AAA H o c k e y League season opener on Friday, Sept. 27. The Tisdale Trojans scored twice in the final 1:11 to tie the game 4-4 before the Warriors were able to take a 5-4 overtime victory during the Warman Showcase season-opening tournament. “Obviously we don’t want to be giving up two-goal leads late in games, but we can definitely learn from it,” said Warriors head coach Trevor Weisgerber. “We have some good video we can go over today and tonight and show them tomorrow, but all in all it was a good game.” Parker Jasper scored the game winning goal with 1:19 remaining in overtime, but all in all, the contest shouldn’t have reached that point: Kirk Mullen’s goal with 1:28 to play put the Warriors ahead 4-2 and looked to all but lock down the victory. Tisdale’s Mario Fortier would score only 17 seconds later, though, before Kalen Ukrainetz tied the game with 41 seconds on the clock. Until that point, the Warriors had turned in an impressive showing, with Connor McGrath scoring a pair of shorthanded goals in the second period to go along with a marker from Sam Boldt. Caelan Fitzpatrick and Atley Calvert each had two assists. Chase Coward made 25 saves to earn the

win, Hunter Lolacher stopped 26 for Tisdale. Former Prairie Hockey Academy Midget Varsity standout Noah Wills scored the Trojans’ other goal. The contest marked the regular season debut for the entire Warriors line-up with the exception of lone returnee Ben WourmsRowe – making the victory all the more impressive. “It’s early and we’ll be learning for awhile here,” Weisgerber said. “But as far as the structure and playing, we were really happy with our effort. We played a physical game, the guys played really well overall and we have no major complaints. So we’ll go over some video and learn from the end of the game and go from there.” Things didn’t go as well in the Warriors second showcase game as they fell 4-2 to the Saskatoon Blazers. Tyson Wouters scored with 6:57 remaining in the third period and Alec Saratzky added an empty-netter with 13 seconds left as the Blazers picked up a 4-2 victory. Davis Fry got the Warriors on the board 7:58 into the game, but the lead would last barely a minute before Wouters would score his first of the game to send things into the break tied 1-1. Nolan Sparks then scored the only goal of the second period with 3:56 gone to put the Blazers up 2-1, but Parker Jasper would get that back just over five minutes into the third, setting up the late-game dramatics. Dylan Ernst made 21 saves in the Warriors goal, Zane Winter made 33 stops for Saskatoon. Next action for Moose Jaw will be Saturday, Oct. 5 when they rematch the Blazers. (1:30 p.m., Mosaic Place).

hole past Tribe netminder Bailey Brkin. Joseph got that back only 38 seconds into the second period, finishing off a nifty passing play with Korczak and Denomie with a one-timer past Kruger. Back-to-back too-many-men penalties hurt the Warriors midway through the second period when Ben McCartney scored on the power play at 8:46 to put Brandon ahead 2-1. Taphorn tied the game at 9:44 of the third when Braden Miller unleashed a shot from the point through traffic and the rebound found Taphorn all alone in front of the net. A quick dipsy doodle later and the game was tied 2-2.

The third-period surge has become a hallmark of the Tribe through the early part of the season, something that Hunter has been sure to instill in his troops. “I said to the team after the second period, the beauty of junior hockey is you can play poorly or very average for two periods and still win a hockey game,” he said. “But we had to change a few things, the way we were playing, the way we were pressuring pucks and the way we were checking and moving pucks, and we did.” In what’s quickly becoming a broken record, Brkin put together another solid showing in goal, turning aside 31 shots. Kruger made 28 saves for the Wheat Kings. Warriors 5, Brandon 0 Brkin turned aside all 22 shots he faced to pick up the shut-out as the Warriors turned in a commanding performance in Brandon. Joseph, Alarie, and Kaedan Taphorn all scored once and added an assist for the Tribe, who took a 2-0 lead out of the first period and led 3-0 through two. Tate Popple and Keenan Taphorn added single markers, while Denomie and Korczak each had two assists. The Warriors fired 29 shots at Brandon starter Jiri Patera. The Warriors are back in action Sunday, Oct. 6 when they host the Regina Pats. The contest will feature a special game time of 4 p.m. at Mosaic Place.

Tree of Significance: Silver maple tree on South Hill Moose Jaw Express Staff

A large silver maple tree in Moose Jaw has been designated as the community’s annual tree of significance. National Tree Day was Sept. 25, coinciding with National Forest Week from Sept. 22 to 28. The City of Moose Jaw’s Tree of Significance program is held annually in conjunction with these events. “This program is to encourage residents to take notice of, and appreciate, our urban forest,” said Sarah Regent, parks gardener. “It is also a chance to bring awareness to a tree with special significance in our community.” This year’s tree of significance is a large silver maple tree at the corner of Fourth Avenue Southwest and Iroquois Street West; this tree is the namesake tree of Maple Leaf Bakery. The City of Moose Jaw invites residents to view all tree of significance winners — since the program’s inception in 2011 — on the city’s website at horticulture/tree-of-significance/tree-of-significance.

Hunger in Moose Jaw announces continued partnership with Yara International Larissa Kurz In a press release, Hunger in Moose Jaw proudly announced that Yara International has agreed to another 3-year term as the leading sponsor for the community gardens project here in the city. “Supporting Yara Community Gardens is an excellent fit for Yara’s Community Involvement strategy”, said George Pohorelic, president and plant manager of Yara Belle Paine, in the press release. The Yara Community Gardens operates garden plots and boxes in three locations in Moose Jaw and is just one initiative in Hunger in Moose Jaw’s repertoire. The garden is a community project, supporting the idea of sustainable nutrition and community involvement, and has been running since 2006. As a company that deals in the manufacturing of nitrogen fertilizer, Yara International supports the ideals of the community garden and chooses to support initiatives where its employees call home. Sharla Sept, executive director at Hunger in Moose Jaw, is pleased with the renewed partnership. “Having the continued support from Yara is key to the success we have been building over the past 10 plus years,” said Sept in the press release. “The gardens are a place to grow not only produce but grow a sense of community and we are thrilled to be able to continue to support our mission of supporting families with nutritional programming.”

All Are Welcome!

Over the last couple weeks, we have attempted to start the conversation about our need to clean up and clear out the clutter. I hope you have jumped on board with me to get the process in motion. As I look back over the past while, I see that it has been a series of small steps to accomplish a big feat. Literally, my decluttering journey started when we decided to sell and move after living on the same place for 15 years. We not only had to purge our living quarters but also our shop, barn and yard. We also were downsizing so this also had a bearing on what we would take with us. We have been at our new place for over three years and I am still purging and organizing. Do not let this deter you, though. I am seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. There is hope for you! One of the main suggestions I would give you is to stay at it. It is about progress not perfection. Consistency is key. Break it down into small increments of 20 minutes. By the end of the week, you could have 100-140 minutes of clearing out accomplished. Be reminded of the turtle and the hare. Slow and steady wins the race. If you need motivation, imagine your boss or a close friend or loved one showing up with only half an hour notice. I use that thought many times to encourage myself to make a quick pick up throughout the house. Be at rest and remember, it is not about perfection. It is about progress. One step at a time. One drawer. One closet. One room at a time and build on that. As we see progress with a few rooms cleaned, it is now time to establish a routine to keep those spaces organized on a daily basis. Daily chores take very little time yet we procrastinate and it becomes a bigger job than it started off being. Wash the dishes right after meal time and put them away right away. They wash up much quicker and easier when there is no dried-on food. And if you are blessed to have a dishwasher, it only takes 5 minutes to unload! How about when you get undressed? Throw your clothes right in the hamper or basket or re-hang if they can be worn again. I put a bunch of hooks on a 1x6 and use that for my jeans and hoodies to hang on instead of trying to keep them neatly folded and stacked. It makes keeping the bedroom clean much simpler. Cleaning the bathroom takes only minutes if you stay focused and on top of it as well. Sort through your mail right in the post office or immediately when you get home. Fold a load of clothes right out of the dryer; it really only takes minutes, too then take them straight to the owner’s room and put away. There are many chores that are short and sweet if we do not put them off. Max Lucado says “the secret to your future is hidden in your daily routine.” Purging is therapeutic. Staying organized brings order and peace. God is a God of order. He desires that we live an orderly and peaceable life. God never meant for you to live in chaos, upheaval, or dysfunction. There are so many benefits financially, spiritually, relationally, mentally and physically. Take one step at a time and you will soon see the fruits of your labor. Do not put it off one more day!

WHEELER It is with profound sadness that we announce that Martha Laraine Wheeler, aged 78 years of Moose Jaw, SK passed away peacefully, surrounded by family, in the early morning on Friday, August 16th, 2019. The youngest of 8 children, Martha was born December 30th, 1940 on the family farm in Birsay, SK to the late Leemon and Jessie LaBar. They later relocated to the Old Wives District. Growing up Martha had a strong love for animals, especially horses, and spent many years training horses and developing her ability to trick ride, a skill that she was very proud of. She married the love of her life, William (Bill) George Wheeler, on November 4th, 1961 and together they raised their son and daughter. Martha and Bill loved to travel and together they saw pretty much all of North America in their camper. Family was very important to Martha, and she was always armed with her photos ready to show off and brag about the people she loved most in this world. She was predeceased by her father, Leemon LaBar; mother, Jessie LaBar; brothers: Elmer, Victor (Maggie Ridley), Lewis, and Bernard; sister, Hazel Holstrom; father-in-law, Richard Wheeler; motherin-law, Victoria Wheeler; brothers-in-law: Don (Elva) Wheeler, Jack (Pat) Wheeler, and Vivian Doney; and sisters-in-law, Violet (Hugh) Ridley, and Kathleen (Allwyn Gray, Reo Tremblay). Martha is survived by her loving husband of 57 years, Bill; son, Ricky Wheeler; daughter, Janet (Harvey) Stewart; sister, Joan (Bill) McNabb; brother, Enos (Vivian) LaBar; brothers-in-law: Edwin Holstrom, Bob (Lorraine) Wheeler, and Ray (Glennis) Wheeler; sister-in-law, Dorothy LaBar; former sisters-in-law, Nicki Kammack and Kathy Hartness; grandchildren: Natasha (Dave) Kennedy, Chad Stewart, Jodie (Russ) MacDonald, and Cody (Lindsay) Stewart; 11 great-grandchildren; as well as many nieces, nephews, extended family, and dear friends, all of whom she loved deeply. The family would like to thank Dr. Vermaak, and the staff on Memory Lane at Pioneer Lodge for their kindness and compassion in a very difficult time. A Celebration of Martha’s Life will be held on Saturday, October 5th, 2019 at 1:00 p.m. in Moose Jaw Funeral Home. In lieu of flowers donations in Martha’s name may be made to The Moose Jaw Humane Society, Box 1658 Station Main, Moose Jaw, SK S6H 7K7.

Glen loved farming and started out on his own farm with Beth in 1970. He grew and evolved the farm for 34 years before retiring to Moose Jaw in 2004. Along with his passion for farming, Glen was heavily involved with the Saskatchewan Wheat Pool, Mossbank School Board and many other community activities. Glen was well known for his ingenuity, exceptional carpentry and welding skills. He not only enjoyed building things for the farm and his family, but also being there for anyone who needed a helping hand. Thank you to Dr. Geyer and all the staff at Guardian Grove at Providence Place. As per Glen’s wishes no Funeral Service will be held and interment will take place at the Mitchellton Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations in Glen’s name may be made to Providence Place Foundation Inc for Guardian Grove, 100 – 2nd Ave NE, Moose Jaw, SK S6H 1B8 or the Alzheimer Association of Saskatchewan, 301 - 2550 – 12th Ave, Regina, SK S4P 3X1.
