Workshop hopes to inspire more women to consider local government



Larissa Kurz

City Councillor Crystal Froese has been in her position since 2016, and she feels confident in saying that her time as a city councillor has given her a chance to make changes in her community. “I’m really quite grateful when people phone me up and express their concerns. . . and I’m able to help them, to get them answers or change something around the council table that makes their neighbourhood a little better,” said Froese. “That’s definitely gratifying.” Froese is one of three women on the current city council, an impressive ratio of male to female voices in terms of the rest of Canada, which reports that only 18 per cent of mayors are female and 20 per cent of councillor seats in the country are held by women. Equal representation of women in politics has been a discussion on the table for many years, and one workshop coming to Moose Jaw is hoping to encourage women to consider getting involved in their local governments, boards, and councils. Our Voice, Our Province is a day-long seminar that is coming to Moose Jaw on Oct.

The return of Mac’s rack puts world-record title back in Moose Jaw Larissa Kurz

The war is officially over, and Mac the Moose has won. After a long several months of media coverage, friendly back-and-forth with our rivals, and one visit from across the ocean, Mac the Moose has finally reclaimed his rightful title as the world’s tallest moose statue. It was an impressive crowd that gathered for the official unveiling of Mac’s new antlers, one that included Moose Javians, various schools from the city, and people who travelled in just to witness the moment.

“We did this for Moose Jaw, for the Moose Jaw people,” Mac the Moose is once again the proud guardian of Moose Jaw, with antlers intact.

-Rion White, Orion’s Taxidermy As the new antlers were unwrapped, a handful of dignitaries and members of Team Mac said a few words about the project and what it has meant to the city of Moose Jaw.

Regina video personalities Justin & Greg brought Mac’s challenge to the public, and what followed was a media boom that has been assessed to be worth over $7 million in exposure and has won Moose Jaw a marketing award from the

Members of Team Mac, Moose Jaw dignitaries, and Tourism members toasted to Mac’s upgrades finally being complete.

Economic Development Association of Canada. The very public “dispute” between Moose Jaw and Stor-Elvdal, Norway boiled down to a height race between Mac the Moose and Norway’s moose, Storelgen. In order to make up that 30-centimetre height difference, the quest to build Mac a new rack of antlers began. Money poured in, including a $25,000 donation from Moosehead Breweries, and the pledging of man hours and equipment donations from local businesses. Rion White from Orion’s Taxidermy and Brysen Bert from Steady Metalworks took on the task of building the antlers, alongside a number of other team members to make the project happen. Both White and Bert were honoured to be a part of Team Mac, to work on a project like this one. “This isn’t just about giving Mac a new set of antlers or getting his title back,” said Bert. “It was a big undertaking. That’s what it’s all about, is bringing people together and making something happen.”

White admitted that taking on this project gave him pause for a brief moment, but he’s glad to see the results of his team’s hard work. “We did this for Moose Jaw, for the Moose Jaw people,” said White. “I’m not going to lie, there were a few instances where I said, I think I’ve bit off more than I could [take]. . . but when we were standing there [with his antlers on the ground], there’s one thing that was on our minds: we live in Moose Jaw, and we have to have the world’s biggest moose.” “It’s just cool to be a part of it,” said Bert. “It’s a fun story, something to lighten the mood and bring people together.” Mac’s antlers were installed on Oct. 8 and covered until a grand reveal to the public on Oct. 10. The new rack not only gives Mac his height advantage back but upgrades his situation: they’re lighter and more realistic looking than his previous pair. This summer was the first time Mac spent any time without his antlers, and it looks as though the opportunity for antler-less selfies with Mac won’t be coming back around anytime soon.

Brysen Bert, from Steady Metalworks, and Rion White, from Orion’s Taxidermy, spoke about how great it was being part of Team Mac.

Canadians will head to the polls on Monday, Oct. 21 to vote in the 43rd national election, but there is much to know beforehand about the voting process. Who is eligible to vote? What identification do you need to cast a ballot? Where is the nearest polling station? These are some of the questions that Brian Elwin Harrison, acting returning officer for the Moose Jaw—Lake Centre—Lanigan electoral district, answered during an interview on Oct. 8. Anyone who is a Canadian citizen is eligible to vote, he explained. Anyone who becomes a Canadian citizen on or before Oct. 21, or turned 18 years old on or before that date, can also vote. “It’s really exciting to see immigrant people who just got their citizenship come vote for the first time. Their eyes just light up,” he said. The Elections Act says you must bring two pieces of ID. One piece of ID must contain proof of your residence and address. However, not everyone has that kind of proof. For example, seniors in care homes can no longer prove where they live since they have no bills, Harrison said. Instead, the administrator will write a letter of attestation saying those seniors live there and can vote there. Officials at the Elections Office have also reached out to both homeless shelters. The managers and CEOs of Transition House and Riverside Mission can also write letters of attestation saying their residents are eligible to vote. Some pieces of ID you can bring to vote include a driver’s licence with your picture and address; any document issued by the government; your voter registration card; and anything with your present address such as a utility bill. Your voter registration card will tell you where to vote on Oct. 21. Residents who are concerned about whether their address is up to date or want to register can visit the office from now until 6 p.m. on Oct. 15. These revisions can also be made over the phone or by mail. The elections office at 61 Ross Street West is open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. from Monday to Friday, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturdays and from 12 to 4 p.m. on Sundays. Advance polling occurs from Oct. 11 to 14 from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. There are five locations in Moose Jaw — Sacred Heart School, Sunningdale School, two stations at Pallis-

Acting returning officer Brian Harrison talks about where some of the polling stations are in Moose Jaw and how the community is separated into voting sectors. Photo by Jason G. Antonio er Heights School, and A.E. Peacock Collegiate — where voters can cast their ballot ahead of Oct. 21. “Advance polling has become so popular that it was extended by one day and to 12 hours a day, plus nine extra places (in the riding),” Harrison said. There are 688 volunteers who will help at the 72 polling locations throughout the riding, which will be open on Oct. 21 from 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. There will also be four mobile polling stations that will go to seniors’ homes that day. The electoral district is more than 32,000 square kilometres in size. It extends from about six kilometres west of Regina to west of Moose Jaw and then to about 10 kilometres south of Saskatoon to the Lanigan area. There are 48,000 potential voters in the riding for this election. During the 2015 election, there were 58,335 potential voters and 42,107 people who actually cast ballots. “To predict how the vote turnout will go is beyond my realm,” chuckled Harrison. “I would love to see 100-percent turnout. I would encourage everyone to vote … .” As a former teacher of 30 years, Harrison recalls taking his class to the legislature to meet with speaker Glen Hagel. Hagel told the students that Canada changes its governments without the loss of life since there are no revolutions and very little violence. Harrison added that voting is important since it is the responsibility of every Canadian citizen to do so. After all, if you don’t vote, you can’t complain for the next four years.

Telemiracle 44 takes place next year in Regina and organizers are starting to look for talent from across the province to fill the lineup. Telemiracle, “Saskatchewan’s charity,” is interested in finding singers, dancers, bands and entertainers to perform at the Conexus Arts Centre on March 7 and 8, a 20-hour event that is broadcast live throughout Saskatchewan on CTV. Since 1976, the event has raised more than $135 million. Anyone interested in auditioning must register in advance and can do so online at or by calling the Kinsmen Telemiracle office at 306-244-6400, ext. 2. The deadline to apply is Friday, Oct. 25. Apply early as there are a limited number of audition spots available. Auditions will be held in Regina on Sunday, Oct. 27 and in Saskatoon on Saturday, Nov. 2. Richard Kies, Kinsmen Foundation executive director, said in a news release, “Between Saskatoon and Regina, our producers watch well over 150 auditions. They then have the tough job of narrowing that down to those that will appear on Telemiracle.” Talent and a passion for Telemiracle are the main criteria, but performers are also chosen to represent a wide variety of communities across Saskatchewan. “We want our Saskatchewan talent on the show to represent the fabric of the province,” says Jesse Shkuratoff, chair of Telemiracle 44. “It’s amazing and humbling to see the quality of talent in this province, and how generously people give to Telemiracle.” Telemiracle is entering its 44th year and will celebrate the 100th anniversary of Kin Canada in 2020. Through the proceeds of this annual telethon, the Kinsmen Foundation helps Saskatchewan people every day to improve their independence and quality of life. The foundation provides specialized mobility equipment to people and organizations throughout the province, as well as access to travel assistance for residents in need of vital medical appointments and treatment.

This information has been circulating around and finally got to me; the hope is that it will bring a chuckle to your day. “Lexophile” describes those that have a love for words, such as “you can tune a piano, but you can’t tuna fish”; “to write with a broken pencil is pointless.” An annual competition is held by Joan Ritchie the New York Times to see who EDITOR can create the best original lexophile. Here’s a list of submissions: I changed my iPod’s name to Titanic. It’s syncing now. England has no kidney bank, but it does have a Liverpool. Haunted French pancakes give me the crepes. This girl today said she recognized me from the Vegetarians Club, but I’d swear I’ve never met herbivore. I know a guy who’s addicted to drinking brake fluid, but he says he can stop any time. A thief who stole a calendar got twelve months. When the smog lifts in Los Angeles U.C.L.A. I got some batteries that were given out free of charge. A dentist and a manicurist married. They fought tooth and nail. A will is a dead giveaway. With her marriage, she got a new name and a dress. Police were summoned to a daycare center where a threeyear-old was resisting a rest. Did you hear about the fellow whose entire left side was cut off? He’s all right now. A bicycle can’t stand alone; it’s just two tired. The guy who fell onto an upholstery machine last week is now fully recovered. He had a photographic memory but it was never fully developed. When she saw her first strands of gray hair she thought she’d dye. Acupuncture is a jab well done. That’s the point of it. I didn’t like my beard at first. Then it grew on me. Did you hear about the crossed-eyed teacher who lost her job because she couldn’t control her pupils? When you get a bladder infection, urine trouble. When chemists die, they barium. I stayed up all night to see where the sun went, and then it dawned on me. I’m reading a book about anti-gravity. I just can’t put it down.

Tonnes of supplies delivered to food bank during FCC’s food campaign Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Red and green farm tractors rumbled throughout the community recently, picking up food for Farm Credit Canada’s Drive Away Hunger campaign and delivering the supplies to the food bank. This is the 15th year Farm Credit Canada (FCC) has held this event across Canada. Since 2004, it has generated more than 50 million meals — or pounds of food — for Canadians struggling with food insecurity. The campaign brings together schools and partners to raise food and funds for community food banks. Last year FCC collected more than 9.5 million meals for Canadian food banks. This year, besides the food, it will also contribute $100,000 to support school food programs. Dozens of volunteers from FCC, Conexus Credit Union, Saskatchewan Agriculture, the Moose Jaw Warriors and other organizations helped unload the trailers at the Moose Jaw and District Food Bank on Oct. 9. Sonia Smith has been volunteering with the food bank for 20 years. Having helped organize food from FCC’s campaign since the beginning, she thought this year was phenomenal in the amount coming in. “Every year it gets better and we get better organized,” she said, explaining that the food brought in on pallets is now in bins, compared to previous years when the bags were simply stacked on the floor. This year the food bank received extra pumpkin boxes from a grocery store, Smith added, while it also purchased new shelves earlier in the year that allowed it to better organize its supplies. Helping out with the Drive Away Hunger campaign is a good experience, said Lindsey Bunnell, a loans analyst with FCC. Since 12 schools — a record number — in Moose Jaw helped with this endeavour, many students couldn’t wait to load the trailers. They were also eager to see the tractors. “Waking up this morning and it being so cold, we weren’t exactly looking forward to it, but then you get to the school and the kids are all excited,” Bunnell said. “And we had

Antonio Morty the Moose join us at a couple of the schools, so that was great.” Last year the FCC Drive Away Hunger Campaign collected more than 880 kilograms (5,500 pounds) of food in Moose Jaw, which equals roughly 5,500 meals. This year, Sunningdale School collected the most out of all the schools, generating more than 1,200 pounds, or meals. FCC had two tractors driving around throughout the day, each covering different sections of the city. Both machines made regular visits to the food bank to unload food collected. Food was also collected during the WHL Moose Jaw Warriors game later that night. “Sometimes national campaigns are just donated at a corporate level, but everything we collect in Moose Jaw today is staying at the Moose Jaw food bank, so it’s really special that way,” said Bunnell. Receiving food from the Drive Away Hunger campaign is phenomenal, said Deann Little, development manager for the food bank. “Our shelves are quite bare at this time of year. This really helps to get our shelves replenished (and) to get the hampers to their fully capacity that we like to see them,” she said. While Little didn’t have official food totals yet, she thought more had been collected this year than last year. This meant more volunteers were being called in to sort and organize everything. Floor space had to be freed up quickly since at least 40 pallets of food were expected to be delivered on Nov. 1 as part of the Better Together Food Drive. “It’s an all-hands-on-deck kind of day,” she added with a laugh.

Growing disgruntlement in western provinces voices separation movement For Moose Jaw Express

There is growing disgruntlement in the west with British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba joining together in a movement called Wexit Canada, the voice of separation of the Western Provinces. According to a recent press release, whether it is the “hundreds of thousands of jobs lost in Alberta’s Oil Patch, the federal mismanagement of Saskatchewan’s agricultural exports, the opium war conducted against British Columbians, or undermining of Manitoba’s aerospace and transport industries - Western Canada suffers, while Eastern Canada robs our wealth and our children’s future through crippling industrial regulation, over taxation, and destructive social policies. Wealth is transferred from West to East, leaving economic and personal ruin in its wake.” In addition, “the Government of Canada continues to agitate our southern neighbour through weak law enforcement, compromised intelligence and border security, unsustainable unvetted immigration, susceptibility to espionage, and most importantly - geopolitical opposition to Americas legitimate claims to the Northwest Passage situated in the Arctic.” The release stated that there is more hostility shared by Eastern Canadians towards the US than the Western Provinces, realizing that the US is our number one military and economic partner. The feeling seems to be that a confederation of Western Canadian Provinces would be a better partner to the United States of America than they currently enjoy in Ottawa. As Canadians move toward the October 21st election, the Western Canadian Separation Movement is gearing up to make their voices known with Wexit Canada and its Provincial affiliates (Wexit B.C., Wexit Alberta, Wexit Saskatchewan and Wexit Manitoba) leading the way. Western Canadians are poised to defend our provinces, resources and businesses, and won’t tolerate another four years of the Trudeau government. Wexit Canada stated, “We are willing to separate our strong geopolitical position and over $1 Trillion dollars of natural resources out from Canada’s ad hoc confederation. Wexit Canada will compete in Federal Elections and By-Elections to take the message of Western Separation to Ottawa, while opposing all policy destructive to Western Canadian interests. Wexit Canada will also continue to support and cooperate with Provincial Separation initiatives in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba.”

Better Together Food Drive largest fundraiser for food bank Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Halloween night will be a treat for the Moose Jaw and District Food Bank, as hundreds of ghoulish volunteers will float throughout the community collecting bags of food during an annual fundraising campaign. The 14th annual Better Together Food Drive runs from 6 to 9 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 31. Volunteers will meet at Hillcrest Apostolic Church on Main Street at 5:15 p.m. They will then be sent out across the community with maps to collect bags from doorsteps. That food will then be delivered to the Moose Jaw Exhibition Grounds for sorting and eventually delivery. The paper bags will be delivered a week before the collection date. Residents can fill those paper bags with non-perishable food items. Anyone interested in volunteering can call the church at 306-692-5600, check out its Facebook page, or visit the church’s website at Hillcrest has organized the food drive — with the support of sponsors — since the event’s inception in 2006, explained spokeswoman Karen MacNaughton.

At that time, the food bank was receiving meagre donations and was seeing a growth in clientele. The organization was also unable to provide hampers with sufficient food content. When Hillcrest started running the fundraiser, all the food was brought to the church for sorting and organizing for the first nine years. However, for about the last five years, all the bags have been taken to the exhibition grounds due to the

Increase in everyday costs pushing more people to use the food bank Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

The Moose Jaw and District Food Bank continues to see more clients using its services due to everyday products costing more and incomes stagnating or not increasing as fast. The food bank has been busier than ever, explained assistant manager Deann Little. August was record-breaking, as the organization distributed 451 hampers and helped 1,072 clients. It has also seen a nine-per-cent increase in clients accessing the food bank this year compared to 2018. “We had to hire our casual helper and Deann Little, assistant manager of the bring her on five days a week to help Moose Jaw and District Food Bank, talks about what goes on at the food bank. File with the extra need,” she continued. The food bank goes through about 1,000 photo cans of soup a month, while it also distributes more than 900 boxes of Kraft Dinner per month. Most clients simply don’t have the income to meet their expenses, Little explained. Most goods and products are becoming more expensive, while wages have not increased to the same degree. Some clients also faced unexpected expenses that pop up. “Yes, I’m very blessed at my job to help those in my community,” she said. “It keeps one humble when I see people struggling. “We often get clients telling us they don’t know what they would do if our food bank didn’t exist here.” Little thought it was difficult to say what food item is needed the most. However, she encouraged residents to purchase items that are on sale since the food bank will take it regardless. For the upcoming Better Together Food Drive, she suggested that residents contribute items such as boxed cereal, canned meat, canned fruit, soups, Sidekicks packages, and pasta. Residents can also make donations to the organization. This can be done through the food bank’s website at, by e-transfers at endhunger@mjfoodbank. org, or by visiting the building at 305 Fairford Street West and giving with debit or credit card. “We have always found that our community supports us at any and all events,” Little said. “It supports us on a daily and monthly basis … We’re always grateful for the community’s support to enable us to continue helping others.” The Moose Jaw and District Food Bank is not funded by any level of government, she added, but instead relies solely on the community for financial support.

success of the event and how much food has been collected. “It’s far too big to do at Hillcrest Church anymore,” MacNaughton chuckled, pointing out 50,000 pounds of food and more than 400 volunteers simply can’t fit into the church’s gym. “We are very, very grateful to (the exhibition company) for the use of the space.” The amount of food collected and the number of volunteers helping out has

been consistent for about the last decade, MacNaughton said. The quantity of food picked up has not dropped below 50,000 pounds in the last nine years. “Moose Jaw is a very generous city,” she remarked. The food drive is huge in helping the food bank keep its hampers full throughout the year, said Deann Little, assistant manager at the food bank. Donations of food usually decrease during the summer since many people are away on vacation. However, the organization always attempts to keep the hampers as full as possible. “This food drive, because it’s the largest one for us … the amount of volunteers is critical for that drive to run well,” she continued. This event also ensures the food bank doesn’t have to purchase as much food. Hillcrest Church might organize the Better Together Food Drive, but on collection night, it is the volunteers and supporters who are the important players, echoed MacNaughton. The church is always thankful for their efforts. “We look forward to another successful year,” she added.

Plant-based meat producer shares face strong industry challenges The initial public offering of fake meat manufacturer Beyond Meat Inc. took the stock market by storm. The $25US shares opened at $45, quickly jumped to $239, since settling back to the $146 range. Even at $146, the shares are grossly overvalued, selling at 26 times book value and 10 times estimated sales for the current fiscal year. Investors are keen on the future of this plant-based burger with other pork and beef simulations from plants. There is reason for investors to show interest in Beyond Meat. The plant-based burger has taken off like a volcano. Wall Street analysts believe plant meat products can capture 15 per cent of the $270 billion meat trade in the United States. Last year sales of plant-based meat in the United States increased 19.2 per cent with almost one-quarter in veggie burgers. Beyond Meat brags about the success of the veggie burger in the A and W Restaurants. And it brags that a University of Michigan study found Beyond Meats production emits 90 per cent less greenhouse gases than real meat, takes 46 per cent less ener-

gy with hardly any impact on farmland use. One reason why Beyond Meat shares are so overpriced stems from the amount of shares. After the initial offering and conversion of preferred shares, there are 60.2 million shares out, but major investors, executives and directors own about 43 per cent of shares, leaving a relatively small float for investors wanting in on the ground floor. This ground floor investment has shot up to the penthouse. Things that go up so fast usually come down just as fast, whether they are share prices or rocks. Plant-based meat seems to have a successful future as consumers shy away from real beef for health and environmental concerns. Real meat products have an uphill battle trying to correct impressions from a false United Nations study that placed a large part of methane gas emissions on the meat industry. Once consumers get wise to the fact plant-based meat is an unhealthy highly processed product with 22 ingredients, sales may cool off. In any event, staying on top of the heap will be difficult for Beyond Meat. The production process for plant-

based meat is relatively uncomplicated. Six major food companies in the United States have already come out with their own plant-based meat products. Among them is the huge pork producer Tyson Foods which opted out of a partnership with Beyond Meat to go it alone. Other plant-based meat competitors with deep pockets are Conagra, Kellogg, Kroger, Nestle and Hormel, the maker of Spam meats. In Canada Maple Leaf foods has invested in a plantbased meat called Light Life. While the future of plant-based meats seems rosy, the field is wide open and will likely be littered with carcasses of some competitors.

Vancouver folk musician to bring talents to public library theatre Moose Jaw Express Staff

Vancouver folk singer — and former resident — Zach Kleisinger is bringing his distinct sound to Moose Jaw, where he and his trio will entertain concertgoers with some of his newest material. The folk music performance takes place at the public library theatre on Tuesday, Oct. 22, with the doors opening at 7:15 p.m. and Kleisinger and his fellow musicians hitting the stage at 8 p.m. Tickets are $13 in advance or $15 at the door. Advance tickets can also be purchased

for $25, which would include a seven-inch vinyl record featuring two of Kleisinger’s newest songs. Tickets can be purchased at www. “There is a distinct vulnerability in Zach Kleisinger’s music. With a voice that is deep, slow, and soaked in sorrow, the young Canadian reflects on the human condition with stories that chronicle everyday moments,” his Facebook page says. “The characters in his songs are crushed by broken relationships, financial problems, failing careers, and are oftentimes unable to understand their own anguish. They are possessed by love and introspection, by their passions and aspirations; but are seldom guilty of refusing their own failures and flaws. “These characters exist in a world of sweeping melodies that are strippeddown and minimal; leaving those who live there with an underlying hope and yearning for the future. Zach Kleising-



er’s songs will sink into deeper places within while reminding us of the brevity of our time on this earth.” His second EP, I Hope It’s Calm, Then was released in March 2018 to much acclaim. The album has since garnered more than 250,000 streams on Spotify, landing in the popular Spotify-curated playlist, Folk & Friends. More recently, he released You Should Hold Me and Lower Your Book. The EP began in Montreal when the songwriter was closing out a cross-Canada tour. The album is raw, honest, and asks the listener to reflect on how temporary life is. “I think that’s how the recording of these songs began, in that they were built on a feeling that something inside of me was no longer,” said Kleisinger on his Facebook page. “I look at it now and see that I had a collection of small crisis building on top of one another. There were a few failed relationships, I had run into some trouble

Roughrider alumni gathering for annual gala in Regina Larissa Kurz

For the seventh year, past players from the Saskatchewan Roughriders will spend the night mingling with supporters at the Roughriders Alumni Gala, among an incredible selection of food and spirits. Chris Best, who played ten seasons with the Roughriders from 2005 to 2016, dropped a lengthy list of alumni he expects will be attending the night — including two-time Grey Cup champion Chris Getzlaf, CFL Hall of Fame inductee Gene Makowsky, linebacker Mike McCullough, Alumni president Rob Bresciani, Regina-born Greg Fieger, career Rider Chris McKenzie, and of course, himself, alongside many more. “We have a decent crew for sure, kind of spanning a number of generations,” said Best. “We only have four big events a year, so it’s usually pretty well-attended by alumni.” Best is still working on securing living legend George Reed to make an appearance, as well as Bob Poley who played for the Riders from 1978 to 1984 and

The Roughrider Alumni Gala will be held on October 18th as a formal event and will begin with a champagne reception at 6 p.m., with festivities wrapping up at 11 p.m. The Roughrider Alumni Association asks that attendees purchase their tickets prior to the evening. Buses will meet at the Boston Pizza on Main St. & Thatcher at 5:30 p.m. to take gala attendees to Regina for the evening, and bring them home after the event is over at 11 p.m. Best hopes to see a great crowd out for the event. “We have lots of really good food people lined up and lots of really good drink people lined up, too, so we’re really excited about what we’re offering,” said Best. “People need to come hungry and thirsty because we’re going to have more than enough for everybody, that’s for sure.”


Fate prevented Moose Jaw from having first Saskatchewan television station CKCK-TV’s celebration of 65 years of television in Regina brought memories flowing of the 1950s when television first came to Saskatchewan and the Prairies. The infant television industry arrived offering viewers a new form of entertainment information source. by Ron Walter and Imagine – until then, newspapers, radio, family gatherings and locally-produced plays and concerts were the main sources of entertainment and information. This new TV was like being able to watch the movies at home. Some viewers were so enchanted they would watch the test pattern for hours. The test pattern was a fixed geometrical design often with a Native person wearing a war bonnet in the centre. The test pattern’s purpose was to help the viewer adjust the sometimes snowy and grainy screen picture. Children sometimes played with the adjusting knobs, really throwing the picture for a loop. The often-snowy TV offerings were limited from five o’clock in the afternoon until 11 p.m., then midnight.

CKCK-TV went on air in April 1954 well before the rival CHAB-TV in Moose Jaw, receiving the licence just hours before going on air. It was the first TV station in Saskatchewan. Had it not been for fate, Moose Jaw viewers could have had the first TV station in the province The Moffat family, the owners of CHAB radio, had applied for a licence to open a Moose Jaw TV station well before CKCK. The late Bob Wyatt, who worked for CHAB during most of his accounting career, related the events to me while we were discussing the book Mid-Air Over Moose Jaw by Larry Shaak. CHAB had given up on receiving approval for a station because of the time lapse since the submission to the Canadian Radio Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) in Ottawa. The CRTC had actually awarded CHAB a TV licence. In those days with no fax, no cell phones and limited use of expensive long-distance telephones, snail mail letters were the main source of communication. The pace of business and bureaucracy was much slower. The licence approval for CHAB’s new television station was in the mail on the way to Moose Jaw by airplane on an April 8, 1954 flight of Trans Canada Air-Lines.

The TCA North Star plane collided in mid-air with a Harvard trainer from the RCAF training base in Moose Jaw. The crash took place near the former Ross School in the city’s northeast. It was the worst airplane disaster in Canada up to that time. Thirty-seven people were killed – all the people on the TCA and the Harvard trainer as well as Martha Hadwen, the only fatality from Moose Jaw. Wreckage was strewn all over the area including the current Hillcrest golf course. Among the items lost in the crash were bags of mail. One of the lost letters in the mail bags was CRTC approval for the CHAB television station. Apparently CHAB didn’t learn about the approval until years later when re-applying for a TV outlet. CHAB-TV opened on Main Street in 1959 in the current location of Houston Pizza. In 1969 the CBC bought the Moose Jaw TV station as the publicly-funded broadcaster built a national network. CBC moved the station to Regina in 1971.

REFLECTIVE MOMENTS That ominous word was not heard at wedding

For the past 50 years I have been living with a misconception — that Housemate has fostered with glee. When we married, the standard vow was for the wife to love, honour and “obey”, in sickness and health, till death do us part — perhaps not in Joyce Walter those exact words but close enough for the meaning to get For Moose Jaw Express through. I as the “wife” was expected to love and honour, which I did without any qualms at all, barring of course the usual tiffs of married life. But coming from a family of capable and hard-nosed women, I had a problem with the “obey” part and told Housemate up front that he shouldn’t get his hopes up — that saluting in deference simply wasn’t in my makeup. He grinned and seemed to tentatively agree with my decree. And so married life began, with give and take, honour and respect going and coming from both sides of the arrangement. But occasionally, just to stir the pot and to see how I would react, he would give an order or com-

mand, whether it be to bring him some coffee, make him a sandwich, or even just turn over the television for his tedious (in my opinion) business programs. He calls it my “skunk eye” and that is what he got in good measure as he attempted to boss me around. “You can’t tell me what to do,” I would respond, when I didn’t feel like turning off one of my police shows, or getting him a sandwich or fetching his underwear from the dryer. “You promised to love, honour and obey,” he would point out with a tone of voice that suggested there should not be any further discussion. If I felt like it, or if he were sick, I would relent on some issues but still the spirited debate over our wedding vows went on, year after year, decade after decade, with me suggesting that I didn’t recall that word “obey” in the marriage ceremony. Suddenly it was time to celebrate a half-century together and we began the plans for a party, and for a small display of memorabilia from our wedding day. From the trunk came the guest register, the bridal shower books and gift lists, a veil minus the tiara that I had loaned someone, never to see it again, a flattened bouquet of flowers, table decorations, a cake topper and an envelope containing the booklet, Our Marriage Book. It contains a marriage certificate signed by the minister

(My Uncle Joe Carpenter), witnessed by our brothers and numbered. The subsequent pages set out the ceremony and the vows, which were of particular interest to me. “I, Joyce, do take thee Ronald to be my lawful wedded husband; to have and to hold from this day forward, for better or worse, for richer or poor, in sickness and health, to love and to cherish till death us do part: and thereto I plight thee my troth.” I didn’t think “troth” meant to obey but I looked it up just in case it was a secret word meaning that. It doesn’t. One of the definitions is loyalty but in none of my searches did I find it interchangeable with “obey.” With that knowledge, I scurried downstairs to beard him in his den, exclaiming, “I told you so. I did not promise to obey you, and here’s the proof.” The huge grin on his face confirmed he had known that all along but couldn’t resist having a bit of fun at my expense. Kindly revenge might take me some time, but hopefully we will have a few more years together for me to come up with a devious plot.

Community organizer excited that October recognizes Métis culture Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

The president of the New Southern Plaines Métis Local 160 is excited that October has been proclaimed Month of the Métis in Saskatchewan. “It’s good to have a month for the Métis because it seems like we have a month for just about everybody now,” chuckled LaVerne Trudel. “It’s good to have a month where people can discuss the Métis culture and Métis history because

there was a lot of culture and history back then when they first started out in Canada.” However, when the Métis moved west, the federal government treated them poorly since the government said the land upon which they settled was not for them, he continued. The people then lived on road allowances since they had nowhere to go.

There is plenty of Métis history that people don’t know about, Trudel remarked. While the federal government gave Aboriginals land and treaty rights, the Métis didn’t receive those same privileges. This October happens to mark the 175th anniversary of the birth of Louis Riel, who helped found Manitoba. There are several activities to recognize this month, according to the provincial government, such as: • Government House in Regina will feature an art exhibit by Métis artist Leah Marie Dorion from Oct. 1 to Nov. 10 • Government House will display a rare Hudson’s Bay Company 1870 promissory note, issued at Fort Garry (now Winnipeg) during the Red River Rebellion and on loan from the Regina Coin Club. A Métis Scrip will also be on display; this was offered to families to compensate them for the loss of their property titles • Lt.-Gov. Russ Mirasty will host a presentation on Tuesday, Oct. 15 featuring guest speaker Jean Teillet, the great-grandniece of Riel • On Oct. 22, Government House will offer Regina students the opportunity to learn more about Métis heritage The New Southern Plaines Métis Local 160 is not holding any events to acknowledge the month, Trudel said. However, it is running a seven-month program to help Métis people reclaim their health. A nurse has been hired to inform people whether they are close to being diabetic and help them eliminate those poor health conditions. The non-profit organization has been active in the community since it reformed three years ago, explained Trudel. They has taken part in Tourism Moose Jaw activities and in Canada Day festivities; they participated in Buffalo Day this past August in Tatawaw Park; they works with the Western Development Museum during Heritage Day; and they help raise the Métis flag at Saskatchewan Polytechnic during Riel Day. “We (also) work very closely with police Chief Rick Bourassa (because) we want

The New Southern Plains Metis Local 160 chapter teaches students at the Western Development Museum about their culture, including how bannock, bison, furs and trading played a role over the centuries. Photo by Jason G. Antonio to get our youth back down on the right road,” Trudel continued. Métis people — and Aboriginal people in general — tend to shy away from police and RCMP. This is why the group works with the RCMP as well. There are about 1,200 Métis people living in Moose Jaw according to the latest census, said Trudel. He believes there could actually be more — closer to 1,500 people — since not everyone knows they have Métis background. Furthermore, there are about 80,000 Métis people living in Saskatchewan. But again, Trudel noted not everyone knows they are of that background since their grandparents never participated in such cultural activities. The New Southern Plaines Métis Local 160 is having its annual general meeting on Sunday, Oct. 27 at 2 p.m. at its office on the second floor of the Hammond Building. Elections for group officers take place on Tuesday, Oct. 29. The positions of president, vice-president, treasurer and secretary will be open. After three years as president, Trudel does not intend to run again since he believes he has given to the community as much as possible. For more information call 306-692-8889.

provinces including Saskatchewan. Since 1975, the Saskatchewan Elks Association has held an annual fundraising Walkathon to support the Centre. It has been calculated that we have walked over 80,000 km (that’s around the world twice) and we have raised over $3,000,000.00 for the SPARC program (that’s three million dollars). The Walkathon starts at 1:30 P.M. at the Elks Lodge, 4915-1st Avenue North. Short and long routes will be marked. Banquet tickets are $25.00. For more information go to the website:

Pro-life demonstration gathers outside Victory Church Larissa Kurz

A crowd of supporters joined Moose Jaw Right to Life president Jean Landry and vice president Ron Hardy in a peaceful demonstration on Oct. 6, lining the 600 block of Main St. Each attendee carried a sign with a pro-life message, some of which referenced topics such as abortion, euthanasia, and the importance of all lives. The group held signs referencing the imporThe Right to Life group in the city tance of all life, “from womb to tomb.” organizes the event every year in October, in conjunction with the national Life Chain campaign. Across Canada and the United States, individuals and groups gathered in their own communities to do the same thing simultaneously, as a show of solidarity. The event is meant to be a peaceful hour of prayer to reflect on the “sanctity of all life,” according to the event’s Facebook page. “It attempts to waken our public conscience by exposing the truth that abortion results in the death of a child and mother’s need support and not abortion,” said the group’s official press release. “If our elderly feel loved and valued, they will not seek to be euthanized.” Landry continues to organize the annual demonstration for that reason, but also because she hopes it provides some exposure for the Right to Life’s existence. “We’re pro-life, and we’re pro-woman and pro-baby, pro-elderly, pro-disabled. We’re for everyone that is vulnerable, and I think sometimes people get the wrong idea, that we’re ‘against women,’ but we’re not,” said Landry. “We just want everybody to know that we’re there for them, in a positive way.” The annual demonstration has been going on in Moose Jaw since the 1970s. Supporters stood on Main Street for about an hour.

Entrepreneurs face the Dragons’ Den, return with $20,000 grant Larissa Kurz

Earlier this spring, Medicine Hat entrepreneurs Laurie Haliwyz-Way and Lisa Warken traveled to Toronto with big hopes for their children’s literacy business — and the pair weren’t disappointed with the experience. Haliwyz-Way, who originally hails from Moose Jaw, and Warken own Literacy Lane, a company that produces customizable adhesive floor decals designed as learning aids to improve children’s literacy skills in an engaging and productive way. The pair applied to present their business pitch to the investors on Dragons’ Den for the upcoming 14th season of the popular show, one of over 3,000 hopeful businesses vying for a chance. Only 100 applications were selected to head into the Den, and Literacy Lane was one of them, much to the excitement of both Haliwyz-Way and Warken. Their business was only four months old at the time of the auditions in March. “As you’re walking up the stairs and you’re getting to the point where you’re going . . . to enter the Den, it was surreal,” said Warken, of the experience. “It was just that, a chance of a lifetime,” added Haliwyz-Way. “We were pretty nervous going in, but the millionaires that we were up in front of, they were all very compassionate.” The experience was surreal, the pair admitted, and although they remain unsure of whether their pitch will be aired as part of the show, they hardly walked away empty-handed. As a sponsor of the Den this year, the Desjardins GoodSpark program selected 9 businesses from the assembled 100 live pitches who fit the criteria as a socially conscious business that is positively impacting the

Laurie Haliwyz-Way (L) and Lisa Warken (R), co-owners of Literacy Lane, a Medicine Hat-based company that recently pitched to the investors on CBC’s television show Dragons’ Den. (supplied) youth in and around their community. Near the end of August, Haliwyz-Way and Warken were informed that they were one of those businesses to make the list, receiving a $20,000 grant to further their venture. Desjardins will now help promote Literacy Lane and its

products, and Haliwyz-Way and Warken plan to use the grant to supply select schools across Canada with their Literacy Lane adventure packs for free. “We’ve been well received in the schools that it’s in right now, and we’re just really excited to be able to reach other places further away than our bubble here in Medicine Hat,” said Haliwyz-Way. “We’re hoping that by giving the lanes to a few [schools] across Canada, we can spread what we have and everybody can join in on our mission to help improve literacy,” said Warken. As a speech pathologist and literacy intervention assistant respectively, Haliwyz-Way and Warken developed their products using research and experience working with children in a learning environment. “We’re working in the schools, we can see where kids are needing support,” said Haliwyz-Way. “It’s well known that movement really helps kids focus, become more calm and organized, and we’ve just added purpose to that so [our product] goes beyond just the movement break.” Literacy Lane is currently an online-based venture, shipping worldwide, and Haliwyz-Way and Warken are hoping this adventure will help their products reach even more communities. Receiving the Desjardins grant is a positive step towards their goal of expanding Literacy Lane both nationally and internationally. The first episode of Dragons’ Den aired on Sept. 26. While Haliwyz-Way and Warken have yet to hear word on whether they will appear on the show, they remain hopeful for the promising future of Literacy Lane.

Avoiding cost over runs during farm construction projects By Ron Walter - For Agri-Mart Express


EXPRESS Doing your homework beforehand when constructing a building is emphasized by builders in a recent Farm Credit Canada online article. Cost over runs are too common when the proper homework isn’t done. To prevent cost excesses, Gary Van Bolderon of Canadian Farm Builders Asso-

ciation suggests making a complete list of everything needed from excavation work, road entrance, driveway, septic services, water and hydro services, site survey, engineering environmental approvals and local building approvals. Design should be in detail from a set of drawings approved by your municipal building department. Details should include everything from framing, insulation, concrete type, types of door and 19104BS0 19104BS1

windows, cupboards to lighting. Get building permit compliance before starting. List all trades needed and get quotes. Van Bolderon suggested hiring a contractor for complicated projects. Gary Hutchings of UFA Farm and Ranch Structures says most people taking on a building project don’t know what to expect or how complicated it can become. He suggests the first great step in the pro-

cess is to define your wants and needs and separate them to plan successfully and avoid costly decisions. Any changes made during construction will add costs. When hiring trades or contractors obtain written quotes for the detailed work outlined by your lists. Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@

Back pain, opioids and your alternatives

by Dr. Steven Heidinger, Moose Jaw Chiropractor

If you haven’t heard, we have an opioid problem here in Canada…I’ll get back to that one in just a bit. Did you know that if you have back pain and you decide to seek care for your pain, who you choose to see may affect your risk for opioid use and/or possible opioid abuse? New research is showing that choosing to visit a chiropractor or a physical therapist, rather than a primary care physician, for a new onset of lower back pain, substantially decreases short term and longterm use of opioid drugs. Here are some facts about the opioid crisis that exists right now in Canada (from the government of Canada website, 2019 and the Canadian Centre on Substance Use and Addiction) More than 9000 opioid related deaths since 2016, An average of 11 deaths per day in 2017 from opioid overdose, 94% opioid-related deaths are accidental, Opioid pain relievers are used by 13% of the Canadian population, 2% of those prescribed use opioids for non-medical purposes. Chronic pain, such as back pain, is one of the more common reasons for why opioids are prescribed.

The Canadian Guideline for Opioids for Chronic non-Cancer pain has its first recommendation being optimizing non-opioid and non-pharmacological therapy, instead of opioids for conditions such as back pain. Non-pharmacological treatments for back pain include chiropractic, physical therapy, massage therapy and acupuncture. One major problem, unfortunately, is that while research is telling us who back pain sufferers should be accessing for their issues, access is often limited to those who can afford the care. Nearly all non-drug options for back pain are not publicly funded. There is a push toward evidence-based decision making in health care today. Most recent best evidence supports combining exercise and manual therapy as the best way to manage chronic, recurrent spinal pain. Gym memberships cost money. Manual therapy costs money. I think things need to change. The views and opinions expressed in this article are those of the author, and do not necessarily reflect the position of this publication.

‘Pop-up wedding’ event will help bridal couples save money By Moose Jaw Express Staff

If you are attempting to organize a wedding and are concerned about sky-high costs, then the Town of Shaunavon wants to help you “marry on the prairie” without spending thousands of dollars. In recent years, there has been a growing trend toward “pop-up weddings,” where couples looking to say “I do” can tie the knot without acquiring a hefty price tag and stress usually associated with a traditional wedding. Shaunavon, “a progressive rural community” has jumped on board this pop-up craze and is offering a oneday wedding and vow renewal experience on Saturday, June 13, 2020, with an event named “Marry on the Prairie,” according to a town news release. Visit or www. for more information. Spectacular green space Marry on the Prairie will offer almost everything a traditional wedding might offer while creating an intimate, all-inclusive and memorable celebration in the heart of southwest Saskatchewan. The event will take place at Memorial Park and Randy Surjik Amphitheatre, “a spectacular green space” in the heart of Shaunavon. If the weather is poor, the Crescent Point Wickenheiser Centre — a modern building that is the most popular indoor wedding venue in town — will be the alternate location. Marry on the Prairie has created an all-inclusive wedding package for the price of $379, the news release said. This includes: venue rental, officiant, registration and vows, one-night accommodation for the bridal couple, a decorated archway, photography, hors d’oeuvres, cake, a bottle of bubbly,a rose with a commemorative tag, basic bridal vehicle detailing, a chance to win a travel voucher, and seating for up to 10 guests. Unique transportation The town has also developed a variety of community partnerships for the bridal couple to take it up a notch with incredibly affordable enhancements. From unique transportation — horse & carriage, antique cars, a massive prairie tractor — to fresh florals, extended photography sessions, beauty services, couples’ massage, nine holes of golf and cart rental, supper

reservations or gourmet coffee party, a bridal brunch, a 30-minute aerial tour to view the prairie landscape, and the option to increase seating to 20 guests, the experience can be customized to fulfill each couple’s desires. Marry on the Prairie is the brainchild of Dianne Greenlay, whose son Michael Kruse-Dahl and his fiancé, Allie Pev — much to Greenlay’s surprise — were married at a similar ceremony called Love on Robson in Vancouver last year, the news release explained. Very quickly the initial shock of the non-traditional elopement was replaced with relief that they didn’t have to break the bank by paying for a traditional wedding. Saving money important “As I found out more about the pop-up wedding phenomenon, the idea made more and more sense to me,” said Greenlay. “These kinds of events … are sweeping the nation as young people are wisely choosing to put the thousands (of dollars) that a traditional wedding can cost towards their education, travel plans, and often a down payment on their first home. “An idea quickly grew of making our quaint and beautiful town of Shaunavon the pop-up capital of the Canadian Prairies. We have since come up with so many exciting ideas to make the experience stress-free, fun, and very unique, as well as astonishingly affordable.” Additionally, Kristy Thienes, Shaunavon’s economic development officer, has spearheaded the marketing campaign for Marry on the Prairie and is an advocate for elopements. In 2011, she and her husband, Garrett, secretly and surprisingly wed in Las Vegas in an intimate and unconventional ceremony. The money they saved

by choosing a non-traditional ceremony went toward a down payment on their house. Let others plan the wedding “The greatest thing about your wedding is that it’s just that – yours. Our ceremony was about Garrett and I celebrating our love for one another, without the months of saving, planning, worrying or spending. Now, not only do we have a great story to tell, but we also own a house,” said Thienes. Marry on the Prairie does all the legwork for spousesto-be, empowering couples to have a special wedding day without the financial burden or stress of planning, the news release said. All they have to do is pre-register and show up with two witnesses and a Saskatchewan marriage licence. The event is also a great opportunity for couples to renew their vows and to celebrate their love that has deepened over time; in which case, no marriage licence is required. As traditional weddings often require couples to book venues a year in advance, organizers Greenlay and Thienes will attend wedding tradeshows in Saskatoon and Regina to let prospective couples know of the availability of this fun and affordable alternative to consider before laying down hefty non-refundable deposits for venues, décor, and caterers. In addition, organizers encourage and welcome all interested couples to contact them at any time – the earlier the better – for more details and/or to pre-register for the next Marry on the Prairie event.

We are making it harder than it needs to be for CAF members to access their medical benefits. It needs to change by Dr. Gerald Olin

Dr. Gerald Olin is the Chair of the Canadian Chiropractic Association (CCA) Board of Directors, team chiropractor for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers (CFL) and the Winnipeg Jets (NHL) and a member of the Royal College of Chiropractic Sports Sciences (Canada).

You may find it surprising that millions of Canadians suffer from musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions each year. It may not surprise you however that MSK injuries are one of the most common occupational risks for members of the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF). In fact, MSK conditions are responsible for 42% of career ending medical releases. Our service members voluntarily and selflessly dedicate their careers to keeping our country safe, and yet, we are making it more difficult for them to access the chiropractic care they need to continue working in top form or enjoy a pain-free retirement. MSK conditions among active servicepeople and veterans are double that of the general population in Canada due to the physical demands placed on active military personnel. These often

debilitating MSK conditions include chronic back pain, headaches, arm or neck strains, osteoarthritis and other diseases of the muscles and joints that have devastating impacts on the health, quality of life, workforce participation and economy in Canada. Extreme cases of MSK conditions can even lead to permanent disability. According to the World Health Organizations (WHO) MSK conditions are the leading contributor to disability worldwide, with low back pain being the single leading cause of disability globally. Federal parties are busy criss-crossing the country, speaking about everything from healthcare to defense. They are talking big strategies that are certainly important, but we must also remind them that there are small changes they can make within existing frameworks to improve the lives of our armed forces members and our medical system. Military personnel face challenges accessing chiropractic care, which is not only concerning, but confusing, since their job is often physically demanding.

Unfortunately, they can only use their chiropractic benefits after first getting a referral from a physician on base. This can cause delays in receiving care and important early intervention. This referral is required even though chiropractors are doctors, which authorizes them to diagnose the cause of their patients’ health condition. They are also often in the best position to recognize when a patient has reached the point of severe disability. In comparison, chiropractic care is well integrated into the United States (US) Armed Forces and Veterans Administration. Currently in the US, chiropractic services are available on 51 bases, including 2 overseas rehabilitation centers, and 36 Veteran Affairs facilities. Evidence from studies commissioned by the US Department of Defense of this integration has shown that adding chiro-

practic to standard medical care is cost effective and can lead to decreased pain, disability rates, and increased satisfaction for active duty soldiers with low back pain. Military personnel passionately represent and protect our country, and they deserve to be treated with dignity, compassion and respect by the healthcare system during and after they’ve completed their service. Just one member denied access to the chiropractic support they’re entitled to is too many. Because of the difficult process to access chiropractic services, it is well overdue for the federal government to supply the right kind of evidence-based framework for our military personnel who have dedicated their lives to defending our country. Chiropractors want to help.

Flu shots will be available soon, given by clinics and pharmacists Larissa Kurz Saskatchewan residents will be able to get this year’s flu shot beginning Oct. 21 in some areas, despite delays in the vaccine’s delivery that pushed the release date back. Flu shots can be administered at public health clinics, as well as at some physician and nurse practitioner offices. The vaccination is free and available to all Saskatchewan residents over the age of six months. Over 340 pharmacies in Saskatchewan will also offer free flu vaccinations again this year. Twelve pharmacies in Moose Jaw offered the flu shot last year, and residents are encouraged to ask their pharmacists about the availability of the vaccine this year. Pharmacists can administer the immunization to residents five years and older again this year, with those under the age of five required to attend a public health clinic for vaccination. The Saskatchewan Health Authority recommends that those with a higher risk of health problems get their flu shot, including seniors, people with chronic health conditions, small children, and pregnant women. Immunizing oneself protects not only personal health but the health of those with weaker immune systems, who are more susceptible to the complications of influenza. According to data, there were 2,170 confirmed cases of influenza in Saskatchewan last year, with the peak of activity occurring in December. Because the federal election requires public spaces for polling stations on Oct. 21, a number of public health clinics will be delayed to later that week. In Moose Jaw, the first walk-in day clinics will take place at the Western Development Museum, beginning on Nov. 1 and running until Nov. 8. After this, appointments can be made at the Public Health office to receive a flu shot on any of the Fridays from Nov. 15 to Mar. 27.

Rescue personnel enjoy working with residents, serving the community Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

If you ask the volunteers with Moose Jaw Search and Rescue (MJSAR) what they enjoy about the organization, most will say interacting with people and serving the community. Tami MacNevin became a member four years ago since she was always interested in the outdoors — such as camping, fishing and hiking — and aspects of criminal justice. Working on preventative search and rescue techniques and saving lives before they’re in danger is what MacNevin enjoys the most, she explained. This mostly involves speaking to students at schools — she has overcome her fears of public speaking by doing this — and teaching them what to do if they are lost. For example, she shows them how to wrap themselves in an emergency blanket and teaches them how to build nests on the ground to stay warm. She also ensures they feel more confident should they get lost. “We teach them that we’re not scary even though they think we’re scary,” she said on Oct. 3 during MJSAR’s open house at the South Hill Fire Hall. “We’re loud when we’re out there looking for them … .” MacNevin has received calls from parents after her presentations, who say they want her to visit another school where their other child is. She has also received calls to give presentations to Girl Guide camps because of previous talks to students. MacNevin keeps her SAR backpack in her vehicle whenever she goes to work in case she receives a search callout. While her employer usually needs her at work, there are some occasions when she receives a callout notice and is allowed to attend the search. “… With the searches, you know you’re

they’re professional, know what to do and are performing well in the field, Sushelniski remarked. That is why one of his favourite activities is map and compass work. “You have to know where you are at any time … ,” he added. “You can be out in the middle of nowhere. Command can call you up and ask, ‘Where are ya?’ and I will tell you exactly where I am using my map and compass.” Anyone interested in joining the organization can visit or its Facebook page.

Photo by Jason G. Antonio making a difference for someone’s family,” she added. “However, it still can (also) be the worst day of their lives,” she added. Jerry Sushelniski, lead instructor and team leader, has been with the group for 21 years. He served in the Canadian military for 30 years, and after retirement, decided he wanted to do something for the community. He used to be a senior non-commissioned officer (NCO) who gave orders, but as a volunteer SAR member, he laughed that he can now only ask for permission while in the field. “I can’t demand anything unless it’s going to affect your life or endanger the team’s life,” he said. “I only ask, ‘Can you?’ ‘Please?’ So it’s a totally different concept when I took that uniform off and put this

uniform on.” Search and rescue teams are important since they provide additional bodies on searches, Sushelniski said. With police forces across the province lacking in manpower, there have been some searches where there have been two police officers on duty and eight SAR members providing backup. Sushelniski enjoys working with and teaching SAR members, including ensuring they know what they are doing. He pointed out there is never a stupid question; it’s his job to answer those types of queries.

Canadian beef exports increase in faceByof Chinese reductions Ron Walter - For Agri-Mart Express Most of the agricultural trade news has been disturbing what with China suspendAGRIMART ing canola and meat imports from Canada. One bright spot in all the trade news is recent statistics showing Canadian beef exports increased 24 per cent in the first seven months of the year to $1.841 billion. Not only was the value up, tonnage was up 14.5 per cent to 253.7 thousand tonnes. The United States, Canada’s top beef market, increased imports by 18 per cent with the next two largest markets also buying more Canadian beef. Japan increased beef purchases from Canada by 59 per cent; Mexico by 12.4 per cent. Even though China stopped buying Canadian beef in June, our exports were up 207 per cent. Chinese colony Hong Kong reduced beef purchases from Canada by 8.8 per cent. Beef imports to Canada declined 16 per cent to 11,688 tonnes during the seven month period.

Laura Hamilton covers home with artwork for studio tour Larissa Kurz

Although participating in the Moostletoe Studio Tours won’t be Laura Hamilton’s first studio tour this year, it’s sure to be as welcoming as any past tour the local painter has put together for Moose Jaw. Hamilton is famous for her colourful, romantic imagery of girls and women, always in a state of movement. Each painting offers a feeling of whimsy, which Hamilton captures by reaching into the mindset of the adventurous woman who lives inside of each person. Her subjects almost always feature quaint clothing — like stockings, sunhats, and fluttering A-line dresses, for example — and pull from Hamilton’s own roots growing up on the prairies, in Moose Jaw. She tries to capture the experience of fresh country living. Hamilton began painting in 2014, and now makes it a fulltime endeavour of creativity, which she calls “my haven, my

refuge, and my retreat.” Hamilton’s studio is located in her home, and each time she hosts an open house, she decorates the entire first floor of her house in her work — which she has not only on canvas, but also printed on a variety of other home decor products. “I absolutely love opening my home to the public,” she said. “It’s the perfect day to grow your own collection or get some early Christmas shopping done.” October is also the month in which Hamilton is releasing her 2020 calendar, which will be available during the tour. Visitors can also take a look at Hamilton’s most recent work, “The Nativity,” as well as some limited-edition productions. Hamilton’s studio is located at 128 Blue Sage Dr. More information on Laura Hamilton as an artist is available on her website.

Artist Laura Hamilton will have her home studio decorated in work for the annual Moostletoe Studio Tour. (supplied)

One Sweet Dream Pottery displaying a varied collection of work for studio tour Larissa Kurz

Beth Barrett, owner and mastermind behind One Sweet Dream Pottery, has a number of new items to show off this year.

Local pottery master Beth Barrett will have her studio open for the annual Moostletoe Studio Tour on Oct. 19, and she’s stocked and ready to go with Christmas ornaments. This is the second year that Barrett has joined the tour, debuting her studio in 2018. Barrett fell in love with the craft about five years ago, and she finds the vastness of pottery techniques to be her favourite part. Barrett mostly creates functional pottery, both dishwasher and microwave safe, that are designed for everyday use. She has numerous mugs, bowls, and plates, as well as ornaments, mosaic tiles, and jewelry pendants. She even creates bakeware, honey pots, and other lidded jars. Barrett glazes much of her pieces with earthy glazes — blues, greens, browns — as well as with interesting prints and textures for an extra pop of design. Lately, she has been experimenting with the raku technique, which produces more ornamental, non-functional pieces. The firing technique and the glaze leaves a

metallic, almost iridescent colour. Much like last year, Barrett will have her series of Christmas ornaments available to purchase during the tour — for those looking to start prepping for the holiday season a little early. She has a variety of different styles, some done in raku and some made with translucent clay. Barrett’s studio is located in her home, where she has built a workspace for herself. She enjoyed welcoming people for the tour last year and is looking forward to doing so again this year. “It was a really nice time [last year], and it’s really great to see everyone and see their reaction, and to chat with people as they come through,” said Barrett. “I have more product this year than I’ve ever had, and you always get better at something the more you do it. I think they’ll be happy with [my selection].” One Sweet Dream Pottery is located at 1211 — 5th Ave NW. More information about Beth Barrett and her work is available on her Facebook page.

Parsons Dietrich Pottery to show off historic church studio on tour Larissa Kurz

Wendy Parsons and Zach Dietrich are a mainstay in the pottery community of Moose Jaw, and will be featured as one of the welcoming stops on the upcoming Moosetletoe Studio Tour on Oct. 19. This year, Parsons Dietrich Pottery is celebrating its 40th anniversary of calling Moose Jaw home, an accomplishment they are glad to have reached. “It’s been really good. Our studio is a great space and we’re really happy to be here,” said Dietrich. The couple is known for their vast collection of work, including earthy teapots and intricately designed statues — among lots of other functional ware like mugs, bowls, plates, and so on. Each piece is made using Saskatchewan clay and glazes, featuring earth-inspired tones from the prairie landscape. Parsons and Dietrich co-own their studio, located in a historic church just off the Trans Canada Highway. Both artists are renowned experts here in the province and have been involved with the Sas-

who specializes in handcrafted work and brings a whole new perspective to design. Their work is always changing, with new pieces and designs being created all the time. A whole new load of pieces are set to be finished firing just before the tour, like some new pieces from their monster series, and there will be a 15 per cent sale going on that day. Visitors will also be treated to a tour of the studio, including the family’s workspace and kilns, with the possibility of some demonstrations of how things work. “People are usually quite happy to see the whole process,” said Dietrich, who promised a look into their creative space.

MJMAG Gift Shop home to a vast collection of prairie artists’ work Larissa Kurz

The Moose Jaw Museum & Art Gallery has a number of great exhibits to check out in their space, which unofficially includes the collection of pieces available in the Gift Shop on the main floor of the gallery. Marg Bertsch, manager of the gift shop, admitted that the Gift Shop is occasionally mistaken for the Art Gallery, which only speaks to how well the displays are organized. Over 50 artists have works featured for sale in the gift shop, and essentially all of them have ties to Moose Jaw and area. This, said Bertsch, is exactly the purpose of the gift shop — to showcase prairie art that means something to the community. “I think everybody here has a connection to Saskatchewan, if they’re not still here,” said Bertsch. “There’s some connection, if they aren’t [living] here now, then they [came] from here, or grew up here.” The Gift Shop features art in all kinds of mediums, ranging from pottery to books to ceramics. Bertsch highlighted a few interesting displays, including paintings and folk-art pieces created by Maxine Forsberg, an artist from Macrorie, Saskatchewan who is around 90 years old and still creating. The Gift Shop also has a collection

The MJMAG’s Gift Shop is an impressive collection that shows off just how wide the range of art in Moose Jaw truly is. of prints by the late McGregor Hone, a revered artist and printmaker from Regina, and some stunning pottery by Moose Jaw’s Rob Froese — who is now in Alberta. Work from tons of other local names can be purchased at the gift shop, including painter Andrew Meredith, who resides here in Moose Jaw, and local glass artist Sue Hunchuk. “We try to carry things that aren’t everywhere else. So, people often tell me they see things here that they don’t see other places,” said Bertsch. The majority of works are on consignment from the artists, although the proceeds collected by the Gift Shop go towards the MJMAG’s gallery as well. Bertsch has cultivated a great relationship between the shop and the

The Gift Shop is open from 1-5 p.m., Tuesday to Sunday, while the MJMAG is also open downstairs.

Open house tour at Yvette Moore Gallery to meet the artist Larissa Kurz

The Yvette Moore Gallery is a Moose Jaw spot that people from all over the country know to make time for, and artist and owner Yvette Moore will be mingling with visitors for the Moostletoe Studio Tour on Oct. 19. Moore has been painting for over 40 years, depicting the iconic hyper-realistic imagery of the Canadian prairies she’s experienced. Her work tells the stories of the prairies, showcasing the beauty of both nature and human interaction. Alongside Moore’s numerous works, her gallery also features other local artisans — everything from metalworking to jewelry to pottery. There are a few new additions to the gallery since last year, and Moore is looking forward to showing off those artists new to the space. On the tour this year, Moore will once again set herself up in a corner of the gallery to paint while visitors mingle —

the only chance in the year to witness her working in her element. Moore always looks forward to having people visit the gallery on the annual studio tour. “It’s always a great mix of people that go around, and so [I’m] looking forward to people coming out, enjoying, and seeing what our artisans are creating, seeing their studios,� said Moore. Both the gallery and Moore have won numerous awards over the years, solidifying Moore as an artistic anchor in the Saskatchewan community. Moore’s gallery recently celebrated its 20th anniversary as a Moose Jaw destination. The Yvette Moore Gallery is located on 76 Fairford St. W. More information about Yvette Moore can be found on her website.

Local jeweler making debut with upcoming Moostletoe Tour Larissa Kurz

Jude Radwanski has curated an incredible collection of jewelry inspired by natural textures and age-old patinas. (supplied)

Jude Radwanski is the creative genius behind Firefly Art Jewellery, a new expanding endeavour of polymer clay and design that keeps her constantly at her new studio space in the Hammond Building on Main Street. Radwanski moved into her studio space over a year ago, and she is excited to show it off during her first time participating in the Moose Jaw Museum & Art Gallery’s Moostletoe Studio Tour on Oct. 19. The studio gives Radwanski plenty of room for her creative process for each piece of jewelry, which she designs from the bottom up. She works with polymer clay, blending and creating her own colours for something unique. She then includes a number of techniques — some pieces are painted or foiled or pressed with a carved design plate — to create the interesting look she has in mind. “I’m inspired by things that look like they came out of an archaeological dig, something that has age to it or maybe it looks like an ancient item or an old piece of pottery,� said Radwanski. “Something that looks like

it came out of nature, in its shape, but then accenting it with a colour that you might not normally see.� Her summer collection was the first time she started selling her work, and it featured bright pops of colour with the geometric shapes. It’s the reason she chose polymer clay as her medium — for the variety. Radwanski has been hard at work creating her winter collection, which has a more subdued colour palette and some entirely new designs. She has created a new, two-part style of earrings — at the request of customers — as well as some wide, chunky necklaces that feature a two-sided design for versatility. The future for Firefly Art Jewellery is bright, with Radwanski participating in several upcoming craft shows and taking on the title of emerging artist from the Saskatchewan Craft Council. Radwanski is certainly ready to open her space up to the Moostletoe crowd and share a bit about herself with the public. Firefly Studio is located on the fourth floor of the Hammond Building, at 310 Main St. N, in room #408.

Lumsden-Morse Constituency

Report from the Legislature

Lyle Stewart MLA Lumsden-Morse Saskatchewan is still growing strong, according to the latest figures from Statistics Canada. Between April 1st and July 1st, 2019, Saskatchewan added 3,435 people bringing our population to an all-time high of 1,174,462. Lyle Stewart Our population has now grown in 53 consecutive quarters, MLA, increasing by more than 183,000 people during that time. Lumsden-Morse A growing province creates opportunities and provides the resources needed to support important government services such as education and health care. This year’s budget included an increase of $26.2 million to school operating funding with education infrastructure investment increasing by nearly an additional $20 million. This year’s health budget is up 3.7% ($196 million), much of it focused on mental health and addictions improvements, new long-term care construction and the new costs of operating the new Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital. The growth of our province has provided the means to move forward with 46 brand new or replacement schools and 23 major renovations. It’s also why we’ve been able to add nearly 900 more doctors and over 3,700 more nurses since 2007. As we get ready to enter the 2020s, our government is planning for another decade of strong growth in Saskatchewan. This fall, we will release a new growth plan for the new decade, with new growth targets and actions we will take to achieve those targets.

Global market connections are the lifeblood of our growing economy, and Saskatchewan has the food, fuel and fertilizer the world needs. That’s why Saskatchewan is embarking on an eleven-day trade mission to Japan and South Korea with an additional stop in Hong Kong. Saskatchewan exports to Asian markets have grown by 158 per cent since 2007 to $8.5 billion in 2018. To Japan and South Korea, Saskatchewan sells high quality canola seed, canola oil, wheat, pulse crops and so much more. We will place a high priority on continuing to develop and diversify our existing links but also on establishing new ones. Asia contains some of the most important and emerging markets for our province. This trade mission will include important conversations to promote Saskatchewan’s sustainable mining sector, our forestry sector, and our value-added agriculture as well as our agri-food sectors. We will also be establishing educational and exchange partnerships with our post-secondary institutions with strong representation from provincial business and industry stakeholders as well as academic institutions. Agriculture has always been and continues to be one of the key drivers of economic growth in Saskatchewan. Today in Saskatchewan, the agriculture industry provides 50,000 jobs, represents about 10 per cent of our GDP and nearly 40 per cent of our total exports. The industry itself continues to evolve, adopting the best practices leading to higher yields and higher quality products while leading the world in environmental sustainability. October is Agriculture Month in Saskatchewan – a time to highlight our connection to food and the role agriculture plays in the lives of Saskatchewan people. From primary production and research to processing and technology, there are many stories to share about the care and consideration that goes into producing the healthy, nutritious meals on our plates. While I know this harvest season has been particularly challenging, I am confident we can get the crop in the bin. Best wishes to all those who are working hard to bring in the harvest, and stay safe!

Hot Pressure Washers!! Is it Statistically Valid? By Robert Thomas

A Note to Readers: For some background, take a read on how the City inferred the 2018 results had some sort of scientific validity from one of Robert Thomas’ old stories. It is used as background for his final paragraph in this article. h o m e / 2 0 1 8 / 11 / 1 6 / c i t i z e n - b u d get-survey-response-top-previous-efforts-7ayyl Is 212 people responding to an on-line survey out of 22,000 voters statistically valid? And if so, is the on-line survey a good indicator of what Moose Jaw residents are thinking? These were questions Council faced when the results of the 2019 Budget and FORM 2 (Section 4)

City Services Survey were presented at their September 23rd meeting. “When 212 respondents out of a voting population of 22,000 (respond that) is less than one percent it is not statistically valid,” Councillor Swanson said of the survey. The question to be asked is Councillor Swanson correct or not? Or was it all just ‘hot air’? To get the answers we did a Fact Checker and asked an expert on the subject of statistics. Dr Andrei Volodin PhD is a Professor of Statistics at the University of Regina, as well as co-editor of the Journal of Statistical Calculations and Simulations and when it comes to the statistical value of

the City’s survey Councillor Swanson is correct. For the purposes of statistics, the City’s survey fails for two main reasons – too low of a sample size and the way the survey was taken usually means the results are biased, Dr Volodin said. In order to be statistically valid, surveys need to have a five percent margin of error and a 95 percent confidence level, he said. Something the City’s survey does not reach. “If we use five percent margin of error and 95 percent confidence level, taking into consideration that the (voting) population size (all citizens of Moose Jaw) is 22,000, then the minimal sample size should be 378, which is strictly more than the actual sample size of 212.” When it comes to bias, Dr Volodin said how the survey is done leads to bias because the sample is not random and representative. The survey must target a group and ensure all group members respond. “Such things are not possible to achieve by using on-line platforms such as Survey Monkey. Only interested people will reply. Such type of research is called an observational study, it is NOT real sampling or correct design of experiment. Usually, when we perform an observational study, we are getting biased results.” In response, City of Moose Jaw communications manager Craig Hemingway said the City never claimed the survey to be scientific but just another means to get feedback from residents to Council. “The City of Moose Jaw has conducted resident engagement on the Budget process since 2015, when 195 respon-

dents took part in the Citizen Budget survey. Public engagement is one of many actions we undertake in an effort to provide City Council with as much pertinent information as possible before Budget deliberations begin. We do consider all feedback important and continue to thank those 212 people that took the time to complete the survey,” Hemingway responded. “We noted in our discussion that of the people that responded, this is what they told us,” he responded, adding “We never claimed that these surveys are scientific or spoke for the majority of the people in Moose Jaw..” “We will continue to search for meaningful ways to engage as many residents as possible on important issues, including Budget,” Hemingway responded. In 2018 a total of 314 people responded to the non-random on-line survey. At that time, Council was told the number of people surveyed was close to the 400 randomly surveyed by marketing firm Insightrix regarding curbside solid waste collection and therefore could be considered a moderate representative view of Moose Javians opinions on the 15 questions asked in 2018.

Failing to complete community service leads to penalty for resident Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

A 21-year-old man who failed to complete his court-ordered community service and who did not pay a related small fine will now have to pay an even larger financial penalty. The Moose Jaw man, who cannot be named since his offence occurred when he was a youth, appeared in Moose Jaw provincial court on Oct. 7. He pleaded guilty to breaching his youth sentence order by failing to complete 50 hours of community service and also pleaded guilty to failing to pay a $100 fine as part of that order. As part of a joint submission, the man will have to pay $400 in fines — $200 for each charge — and will have four months to either pay or work off the fine. As a teenager, the man was given community service on Sept. 23, 2016, where he was ordered to complete his hours by March 23, 2017, explained Crown prosecutor

Stephen Yusuff. However, he managed to complete only 25 hours by that date, so he was placed on a youth sentence order and told to pay a fine of $100. In November 2017 probation services sent him a letter saying his fine was overdue. When asked why he failed to complete his community service, the man told Judge Daryl Rayner he had moved frequently during that time, including to Vancouver, while he was also going to school. “That’s not an excuse,” said Rayner. Now that he was living in the community again, the Moose Javian noted he was fine with whatever fine Rayner gave him since he didn’t want to be in court anymore. Rayner accepted the joint submission of a fine of $400 and four months to pay.

Accused to undergo psychiatric assessment to determine fitness for trial Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Resident Justin Peter James Donnell will undergo a psychiatric assessment to determine if he is fit to stand trial in relation to an alleged break and enter at an apartment near Mosaic Place. Donnell, 31, from Moose Jaw, appeared in Moose Jaw provincial court on Oct. 7, where his defence lawyer had his matters

adjourned until Tuesday, Nov. 12. The accused is scheduled to see a psychiatrist at the Saskatoon Correctional Centre on Saturday, Oct. 19. A report will then be produced to determine his fitness to stand trial and whether he is criminally responsible for his actions. Donnell was arrested on Sept. 12 for al-

legedly breaking into an apartment on High Street West while allegedly wearing a mask and armed with weapons, according to a police news release. He was confronted by the resident of the apartment and a struggle ensued, at which point Donnell was injured. He was sent to hospital and then later released back into po-

lice custody Donnell and the victim were known to each other, according to the news release. According to the docket in provincial court, Donnell is facing charges for alleged breach of probation (seven times), breaking and entering with intent, disguise with intent, and mischief under $5,000.

Accused drug trafficker remanded into custody until bail hearing Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Accused drug trafficker Jason Hartley Fudge appeared briefly in Moose Jaw provincial court on Oct. 7 and had his charges adjourned to Oct. 16 for a possible bail hearing. Fudge, 31, from Moose Jaw, was remanded back into police custody until that date. His Legal Aid lawyer explained she needed more time to receive the information from the Crown and review his file.

According to the Crown prosecutor, Fudge is also charged with allegedly possessing an SKS rifle, possessing brass knuckles, possessing the rifle without a licence, possessing the brass knuckles without a licence, possessing a 30-round magazine with the pin removed, and possessing the magazine without a licence.

Police seized the drugs during a vehicle stop and search on that date in the northwest area of the city. Fudge was arrested during the stop, which led to a search of a residence in the central area of the city, where MJPS found the firearm and magazine, the news release said.

Weather, employer lockout can’t stop picketing SaskTel union members Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Changes in the weather and in working conditions could not change the resolve of striking SaskTel employees, even though their situation had shifted as their employer decided to lock them out. About eight hardy souls walked the picket line on First Avenue Northwest and Ominica Street West on Oct. 8, while a thick snowfall came down around them. With hoods up and gloves on, the individuals continued waving at vehicles and walking past their now locked workplace. Pam Speir has worked with SaskTel for 39 years, both in Swift Current and Moose Jaw. In that time she has enjoyed working with her customers and her co-workers, many of whom she says are amazing. This is Speir’s second go-around walking the picket line, she explained. She was working in Swift Current in 1996 when a strike occurred in that community as well. Similar to the other Unifor union members, she receives $300 per week in strike pay. Since she lives out of town on a farm, some of the strike money is paying for her gas — and the odd parking ticket.

Speir’s co-worker Alex Meyer was also picketing on Tuesday, with a bright neon yellow jacket making him visible in the mini snowstorm. Meyer has worked with SaskTel for 22 years and — speaking for himself — thought the Crown corporation was a good company for whom to work. However, he pointed out many jobs had been moved elsewhere over the years from

Moose Jaw. This has led to one of SaskTel’s office buildings to sit empty for several years. “It should be money we should be able to keep in this building,” Meyer said, noting with so many jobs moved to Regina, employees with families have had to commute. “It would be nice to have the people here and leave the money in this community, which Moose Jaw needs

really badly.” Since the strike was only in its fifth day, Meyer thought it was too early to say how he would be affected personally. In a news release, SaskTel explained that it was locking out its employees who are Unifor union members in the absence of a concluded collective agreement. Company management realized it was unable to provide the necessary level of customer service or maintain the integrity of its networks with unknown and intermittent walkouts by employees. Unifor had indicated its members would return to work on Oct. 8 but would provide only 24 hours’ notice before going on strike again, the news release continued. “This creates far too much uncertainty and the corporation needs to ensure we are able to maintain the integrity of our networks and serve customers in a safe and secure manner,” the news release said, noting it takes 48 hours to ensure its systems are reinstated. The released added that SaskTel remains committed to reaching an agreement and will make every effort to minimize the effect of a labour disruption to its customers.

Warriors Evanoff recovering from off-season surgery

Adam Evanoff has returned to Moose Jaw and rejoined the Warriors while he recovers from offseason hip surgery. “I’m so excited, I wanted to come here at a lot earlier, but I had to stay back and do some more rehab,” Evanoff said. “I’m so happy to be here, I’ve got great billets, great teammates, the staff’s great, I love it here.” Evanoff will miss the first few weeks of the season to continue his rehab, but the 19-year-old goalie says he is feeling better every day. Last season was a breakout second campaign for Evanoff as he posted a 19-10-2-1 record with a 2.62 goals against average and 0.916 save percentage in 36 appearances with the Warriors. Evanoff also when 0-2-1 in the playoffs with a 2.96 G.A.A. and a 0.923 save percentage.

Prior to his injury, Evanoff used yoga to train for hockey, but it also helped him get back on the ice following his surgery. “I did it every week and I actually really enjoy it too. I’ve been working with Jen for probably six years now, doing a ton of yoga with her, preventing injury and it was huge,” he said. “I do it every day now in my rehab and I feel great after doing it.” He was also able to meet one of his hockey heroes during his yoga sessions, “I worked with Carey Price a bit too, that was pretty cool,” Evanoff said. With his rehab progressing, Evanoff has now been able to join his teammates in Moose Jaw and is hoping to be back in the lineup sooner rather than later. “When I was home, that’s all I wanted to was talk to the boys and they’re all excited for me to come down too,” he said. “It definitely makes you realize how lucky you are to be playing hockey like this.” Evanoff feels like the injury will not hold him back but make him a better player. “I understand now that preparation is a big thing, like your body is everything, if you’re not healthy, you’re not going to be out there and you’re not going to be performing at the best of your abilities,” said Evanoff. “I’ve definitely learned a lot about myself too, how much I really value hockey… Character is defined through an injury. It was tough to deal with but I’m definitely on the mend.”

to the game, there’s the game itself for the excitement, you’ve got the score clock, you’ve got the lights and you’ve got the music.” With a goal of building on all four areas, there will be some new features to the games this season at Mosaic Place. Warrior fans will notice new additions to the players’ entrance at games and the team has also rehung and reprogrammed the lighting in the eight-year-old building with new light shows coming throughout the season. What we’ve done this year is we’ve upgraded the system to allow us to program throughout the entire year,” Nyhagen said. “As we all know, you can watch one, two or three times and the wow factor kind of goes away for those fans, so this give us the opportunity to program scenes.” The Warriors plan on putting Mosaic Place’s sound system to the test this season with a new music lineup. “One of the challenges that we put back to our music staff this year is we want fresh, we want new, we want vibrant and they’re answering the call of looking for that,” Nyhagen said. In addition to taking in the action on the ice and enjoying the atmosphere, the young fans attending Warrior games this season will be able to enjoy themselves in the new and improved Western Auto Group Kids’ Zone. “This year we’ve added gaming systems,” Nyhagen said. “Esports is getting really big, a lot of kids are gaming, Fortnite is crazy, Smash Brothers is hug, so we’re giving the kids an opportunity to play on our Nintendo Switch systems.” The Warriors are planning to host some tournaments during the season as well, that may feature some special guest players from the team competing. There will be more new technology featured at Mosaic Place this season with the new Warriors’ app for Apple and Android devices. “When you come to the game, it’s really

giving all the fans a chance to take part — a lot of people don’t want to stand in front of the camera or don’t want to be on the ice, so you download the app, it’s free, when you get to the game you open it up and check-in and you can win stuff just for checking in,” Nyhagen explained. “Throughout the game, we’re going to prompt you to open the app and play along. We have games like ‘Name that tune’, we have trivia contest, there’s the Boston Pizza Main and Thatcher Warrior of the Game where the fans get to vote.” You can get your tickets to Warriors’ home games in person at the Mosaic Place Box Office and online at The Warriors will continue to offer season tickets and the Family Fun Pack (two adult and two child/student tickets, four popcorn and four pop vouchers). Flex Packs are also available, which allow fans to purchase 12 or six game packages. “You’ve got people, whose lives are busy, they’ve got children in things, there’s so many different things going on right now, so the Flex Pack gives people the option and the flexibility to choose the games that you want to go to at a bit of a savings,” Nyhagen said. The Hat Trick package remains available this season. “At the end of the day, we’re just trying to put on a heck of a good show that people want to come and want to be here,”

Carl Jorgenson Tournament donates cheque to provincial Cancer Foundation Larissa Kurz

Once again, the Carl Jorgensen Cancer Charity Tournament has presented a generous donation to support cancer care here in Saskatchewan. This year, the cheque for $3,463.37 was given to the Cancer Foundation of Saskatchewan, which just formed in January of this year. It is the first provincial foundation here in Saskatchewan, and it will work to support the various cancer care facilities in the province. Jakki Crowe, director of development from the Foundation, was on hand to receive the donation from the Lynbrook Golf Club’s president, Tim Peakman, and club captain, Merv Bruvold. “I kind of made it a priority this year, and it went through bigger and better than last year,” said Bruvold. “It makes you feel good to be able to contribute to this, and the Lynbrook is so good because they donate the

course, the carts. It’s a really good cause.” The funds donated will remain in the province, going towards the Cancer Foundation’s ongoing campaign to replace ageing computed tomography simulators at The Allan Blair Cancer Centre and the Saskatoon Cancer Centre. “Simulation is very important for patients that have to go through radiation, as they cannot have radiation without simulation, and so their support of this is phenomenal,” said Crowe. Funds raised through sponsorship and raffles at the Carl Jorgensen Cancer Charity Tournament have always been donated to a cancer cause, in memory of Carl Jorgensen. The tournament is also formatted the way that Jorgensen himself used to play the game. Bruvold was pleased with the increased turnout at this year’s event and is looking forward to next year.

Toilers reach semifinal of girls invitational tournament Lumsden defeats Kipling in final after solid showing for local teams Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The Peacock Toilers and Vanier Spirits went into the October 5th weekend’s high school girls invitational volleyball tournament looking to build on what has already been a solid season, while taking on a few different teams in the process. With 16 teams from throughout the province taking part, it stood to reason they’d do that. And yet, there the two teams were staring at one another across the net during the first game of the playoff round. And unlike the previous meetings between the two teams, it was the Toilers who came out on top, taking a 25-21, 25-22 victory in their quarter-final bout. “I think Vanier and us are pretty even,” said Peacock coach Krysta Caplette. “They’ve beaten us twice and now we’ve taken one off of them, so hopefully that gives the girls a bit of confidence. And we’re working on things like when to chip at the right time and

when to hit at the right time against teams like that, so that was a huge win for us.” The Toilers went undefeated through both the preliminary and re-pool draws, including a 25-15, 25-12 win over Oxbow, 25-15, 27-25 defeat against Regina Riffel and a 25-9, 2521 defeat of Warman in the second round robin. They fell to Kipling in the semifinal. “We played really well and were able to beat Oxbow for the first time,

so we were happy about that,” Caplette said. “Besides that last game when they were way too tired after the long weekend, we were trying different line-ups, trying to see what works for us and who jives well together. The girls are trying really hard to bring the energy and intensity to try and make every line-up work, so it’s coming along.” The Spirits, meanwhile, lost 25-16, 25-11 to eventual champion Lumsden in their re-pool draw before rebounding with a 25-17, 25-10 win over Regina Johnson and 25-19, 2512 victory against Yorkton. While the Central Cyclones weren’t able to win a match over the weekend, they came as close as could be, especially in the second round robin where they fell 25-23, 19-25, 1513 to Wakaw, 14-25, 25-13, 15-13 to Gravelbourg and even took Saskatoon’s Bishop Mahoney to three games in their final contest. Lumden defeated Kipling in the gold medal game.

Warriors’ Hunt, Homola on NHL Draft watch list Hunt projected to go in first round, Homola in later rounds Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

Moose Jaw Warriors defenceman Daemon Hunt has been projected as a first round NHL Draft pick.

Moose Jaw Warriors defenceman Daemon Hunt has been on Hockey Canada’s radar for a good long while, and now the National Hockey League has officially taken interest. The NHL’s Central Scouting Bureau released their first ‘players to watch’ list of the season and the 17-year-old Brandon product was among four Western Hockey League players currently projected to go in the first round of the 2020 NHL Entry Draft. The 6-foot-0, 198-pound rearguard put together a stellar rookie campaign with the Warriors in 2018-19 and was reward-

ed for his efforts with an appearance with Team Canada in both the World U-18 hockey championship last winter the Hlinka Gretzky U-18 championship this summer. The CSB has rated Hunt an ‘A’ prospect, meaning if all things stay the same, he should be among the first 31 players chosen next June. Three of the four ‘A’ rated WHL players are defencemen, including Kaiden Guhle from the Prince Albert Raiders and Braden Schneider from the Brandon Wheat Kings. Right winger Justin Sourdif of the Vancouver Giants also tops the list.

Hunt could have some company at the Draft as the newest member of the Warriors, defenceman David Homola, is also listed by the CSB. Homola, a native of the Czech Republic who was acquired by the Warriors late last week, was lauded by Warriors general manager Alan Millar as having a stellar showing at the Hlinka Gretzky tournament. The NHL thought so as well, ranking him as a ‘C’ level candidate and projecting him to go in the fourth-fifthsixth round range.

Immigrant students excited to attend new language academy Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

More than a month into the new school year, A&L Royal Academy held its official grand opening by offering a Thanksgiving luncheon, a mix of Canadian and Chinese cuisine. About 30 people — including staff, students, parents, dignitaries and business owners — gathered in the former RBC branch at 52 High Street West on Oct. 10 to celebrate the new private language school, which caters to international students and is focused on teaching English as a second language (ESL). Five youths aged 19 to 23 — mostly from China — are in the first class at the private institution; the goal is to have 175 students attend the academy in three years. This year the ESL school opened, followed by an international high school next year, with other programming to follow in three years. The academy offers four three-month semesters a year; there are no summers off. Students study 25 hours a week, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and can stay at the academy for as long as they need. Patty Mohe, 19, is from Beijing and has enjoyed the school so far. She has already learned much during her first six weeks at the academy, such as learning how to read, write and speak in English. The small class has participated in several activities so far, including playing paintball, taking part in the Terry Fox Run, and later, going to a Halloween party. Once Mohe completes her high school education at the academy, she might go to college or university to study math or English, she said. Learning English at the acad-

Antonio emy has made her feel confident about achieving her future goals. She learned the language in China starting in Grade 3, but wasn’t able to speak it well. Mohe’s parents flew in from China to attend the grand opening. She was thrilled to see them, especially since she came to Canada alone. Hanna Gao, 23, was also excited to attend the academy. She came to the institution so she could study for a particular test and later attend college, where she might take finance. Being at the academy has made her more confident in achieving her goals. Also coming from a country of 1.2 billion people, Gao thought Moose Jaw as a small but quiet place in which to live. She thought most Moose Javians were friendly since they had given her help in her first six weeks here. Gao attended university in China, where the schools and classes are different. She pointed out all students do there is study, study, study. But at the academy, she can participate in more social activities in Moose Jaw, an aspect she enjoys. Jeff Mathieson, school principal, explained that the school wants to become part of Moose Jaw. He believes the homestay experience will help immigrant students learn more about Canadian culture and the families with

whom they stay. They will also be able to practise their English skills in a more informal setting. Although some students were shy, Mathieson added most were excited to open the private institution’s doors to the public.

The Canned Salmon Association of British Columbia believes that “the cupboard is never bare when canned salmon is there.” Association members say there’s a powerful lot of solid nutrition and good taste in each can of salmon and that homemakers recognize the value of having one or two tins of salmon in the pantry. This week’s recipes come from two brochures published by the association. ••• Salmon Potato Pie 2-7 1/2 oz. cans salmon 1 tbsp. finely chopped onion 1/2 cup finely chopped green pepper 1/2 cup thinly sliced celery 1 tbsp. oil 2 tomatoes, coarsely chopped 1/4 tsp. black pepper 1 1/2 cups mashed potatoes Drain salmon, reserving the juices. Flake salmon and mash bones. Combine salmon, juices and mashed bones and spread in a 9 inch baking dish. Saute onion, green pepper and celery in oil until tender crisp, 2-3 minutes. Add tomatoes and pepper and simmer for 3 minutes. Remove from heat and pour over salmon. Top with warm mashed potatoes. Bake for 20 minutes at 375 degrees F until hot and bubbling.

Serves four. ••• Salmon Shepherd’s Pie 1 onion, finely chopped 1/2 cup chopped celery 1 large carrot, chopped 2 tbsps. oil 2 tbsps. flour 1 cup chicken broth 2-7 oz. cans salmon 1/4 tsp. each oregano, thyme and tarragon salt and pepper to taste Topping: 1/4 cup milk 2 tbsps. butter 1 egg 2 cups mashed potatoes salt and pepper In a skillet saute onion, celery and carrot in oil until onion is transparent. Add flour and stir until blended. Slowly add chicken broth and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until mixture bubbles and is thickened. Add salmon, including juices and mashed bones and seasonings. Remove from heat. Pour mixture into a greased deep 2 qt. baking dish. Beat milk, butter and egg into mashed potatoes until creamy.

Season to taste. Spread over salmon mixture. Brush with melted butter if desired. Bake at 350 degrees F for 20-25 minutes or until potatoes are puffed and golden brown. Serves 6-8. ••• Speedy Salmon Soup 1-7 oz. can salmon 1/4 cup grated raw onion 1-10 oz. can cream of celery soup 2 cups boiling water 2 chicken bouillon cubes 1/2 tsp. dried dill weed 1/4 tsp. white pepper 1/2 cup croutons 4 slices side bacon, cut in small pieces Remove bones from salmon then dump salmon and juice into a large saucepan. Add remaining ingredients, except croutons and bacon. Stir until blended. Cook over medium heat until heated through. Fry bacon pieces until crisp. Drain on a paper towel. Toast croutons lightly in bacon fat. Sprinkle bacon and croutons on top of steaming bowls of soup. Serves 4. Joyce Walter can be reached at

Average home prices slide 7.7 per cent for the year-to-date By Ron Walter - For Moose Jaw Express

Water line break A city crew digs up the street to repair a water main break. Moose Jaw is on track to experience a record number of water line breaks on the aging infrastructure. Ron Walter photo.

Local real estate sales continue the downward trend in average price and number of for sale listings, according to the monthly report by the Association of Regina Realtors. Year-to-date residential sales on the Multiple Listing Service in the city of 351 properties increased 2.9 per cent over last September. The increase occurred with 20 per cent fewer sales in September than last September — 32 compared to 40 in 2018. Listings of homes last month fell to 67 from 83. Dollar volume year-to-date of $83.4 million was a mere .8 per cent higher than last year for nine months. Ratio of sales to listings of 47 per cent is considered by the association to reflect a balanced market between buyers and sellers. The average benchmark house price of $204,000 fell 3.7 per cent in one month and 7.7 per cent from one year ago. Ten years ago, the average price was $167,000 climbing to a peak of $225,400 in 2014.

On the Front Porch by Wanda Smith Weather Woes As they say, you know you’re in Saskatchewan when the weather changes every five minutes. As I write, snow is falling. By the time you read this column, we may have a third kick at summer. For the better part of the year, the weather has been unpredictable and uncooperative. Being raised on a mixed farm, I am ever-mindful of the challenges that farmers and ranchers have faced this year. We stared drought in the face this spring; the kind of drought that could take an operation out and then saw it turn around into an overabundance of unseasonal precipitation this fall. Uncanny. My heart goes out to each and every one of you producers. Being a teenager during the drought in the 80’s, I remember that dark, ominous feeling I had when funds were tight as a drum. As I’ve shared in this column over the past several years, Hubby and I faced a lack of grass and feed for our horses and could not see a solution unless it rained. The good news rained. Praise God. I have grown so much in my faith since 2017 as we stared drought in the face three springs in a row. The first year I went from feeling as though I couldn’t breathe at night to this year not even worrying about what would happen. A little background to this story... You see, we had considerably downsized in 2016 and up until then, had never had a shortage of grass for our horses until we moved to the much smaller land base. I experienced fear constantly whispering in my ear in 2017 to this spring of 2019, when I relied on God’s promises and rested in His provision. It did not matter how He was going to supply. I did not take the time to figure it out (because it never works out how you think it will anyway) and each time that little whisper of fear would come, I would cast it aside and choose to trust God. Here we are five months later and in better shape than we started. Our slough has recovered, we got enough hay put up and the grass is still green and growing. How are you sleeping at night? Are you tense? Sharp tongued and impatient with your family because fear has a strangle hold on you? Dear one, I implore of you... stop doing life this way. Trust God. Psalm 116:7 “Relax and rest, be confident and serene, for the Lord rewards fully those who simply trust in Him.” Do not rely on your own provision. When your hands are tied, that’s a great time to submit your worries to God. “Give your worries to the Lord, and He will take care of you.” Psalm 55:22 I am reminded of the passage in Habbakuk 3:17,18”Though the fig tree does not bud and no fruit is on the vines, though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food, though the sheep are cut off from the fold and no cattle are in the stalls, yet I will exult in the Lord; I will rejoice in the God of my salvation!” How can we praise God in those circumstances? It is because He will supply a way out! He is our salvation! He is our provision! Let me encourage you, dear one. Look away from your problems and look towards your provider. Your circumstances may seem overwhelming but take courage, God has a plan. He always has a plan! Ask Him for wisdom and see what He’ll do.

DONALD ALLAN BROWN July 1, 1930 – October 5, 2019

MARGARET “MAGGIE” NEWKIRK The family of Margaret “Maggie” Newkirk are deeply saddened to announce her sudden passing on October 5, 2019 at her home in Moose Jaw, SK at the age of 77. She was born on May 29, 1942 in Esterhazy, SK. During her life she lived in several places throughout Saskatchewan and spent the last 10 years in Moose Jaw. She was predeceased by her parents: Margaret “Nan” and Gerald Clarke, and brothers: Gerald “Nappy” Clarke and Keith Clarke. She will be forever missed by her daughter: Kim (Brent) Drozda, sons: Ken (Darla Hoium) Newkirk and Brad (Candace) Newkirk, grandchildren: Silver (Mike) Dukart, Kaylee (Kyle) Mackay, Clarke (Brooklyn) Newkirk, Karrah Newkirk, Reece Newkirk, and Caleb Newkirk, and great-grandchildren: Oaklyn Mackay and Niko Newkirk. Maggie, Mugzy or Gran as she was known to most people, loved to visit, especially over a good meal or the phone. Whether you’d only known her for a few minutes or for a life time, she could always talk your ear off and it felt like you’d known her forever. The thing she loved to talk about most was her grandchildren. She was always so proud of everything they did. It might have been one of them scoring the winning goal of the game, or getting a good grade in school, if you were around her you were going to hear about it. Over the past couple of years, she was blessed to have two great-grandchildren, and a whole new set of stories to share. She had a love for all things cooking, from preparing a huge meal to reading cookbooks to always having the cooking channel playing on her TV. Her amazing cooking talents were passed down from her mom, and now her daughter is following in their footsteps. A private family service will be held at a later date. In Maggie’s memory, donations can be made to the MS Society of Canada.

It is with great sadness that the family of Donald Allan Brown announces his passing on Saturday, October 5, 2019 at the age of 89 years. Don, or Dutch as many knew him, will be lovingly remembered by his children, Rocky (Patricia Lynn), Ricky (Linda), and Lynn. His grandchildren Jordie, Dustin, Jaymi, Sara, Johannah and Mackenzie as well as his great-grandchildren will also fondly remember him. His wife Shirley predeceased him in 2013. Don was born into a family that included 12 siblings, of which his sister Edith (Gordon) Reamer survives him. The family would like to thank Don’s niece Karen Breault (nee Ziegler), her husband Dewain and the rest of their family, in particular their daughter Colleen, for the assistance and support they provided him over the last number of years. A Graveside Service will be held on Wednesday, October 16, 2019 at 1:00 p.m. at the Rosedale Cemetery in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. For those wishing to attend please meet at Parkview Funeral Chapel Parking Lot at 12:30; 474 Hochelaga St. W. In living memory of a memorial planting will be made by Jones - Parkview Funeral Services. Please sign the memorial register at website: www.wjjonesandson. com or (Obituaries). Blair Scott - Funeral Director



The family of Gladys Towriss wishes to thank relatives and friends for their many expressions of sympathy - calls, cards, flowers, food and memorial donations. Your support has been very much appreciated.

KIM PLETT Kim Darlene Plett, aged 61, passed away suddenly Friday, October 4, 2019 at her home in Winnipeg. Kim was born September 5, 1958 in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan and married Kurt Plett August 1, 1981 in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Kim was predeceased by her father George in May 2011 and her father-in-law Peter

in May 2018. Kim being the daughter of a Co-op Manager, lived in several small towns across Saskatchewan and Manitoba until graduating grade 12 at Major Pratt High School in Russell, Manitoba. Kim then attended the University of Manitoba and graduated from the Faculty of Pharmacy in 1980 earning the Silver Medal for scholastic achievement. Upon graduating, Kim entered into a Post-Doctoral program eventually deciding this was not the career she wanted and moved to a career in Retail Pharmacy until health concerns forced her to retire in the spring of 2006 following a rewarding twenty-six-year career. Kim had a passion for Geriatric Pharmacy and a special interest in the health care concerns of our First Nations People where she made many lifelong friends. Along with a passion for pharmacy, Kim also loved the ski slopes of North America taking several annual winter vacations to the Rockies, and summer camping, cottage trips and oh yes, boating at the family cottage where she proved to be a master angler fisherwoman many times over. Kim was also a voracious reader of literature, her taste ranged from mystery to romance to sci-fi and scientific and medical Journals. The love of our collective lives was truly a remarkable woman. Kim is survived by her husband Kurt, mother Lorraine, sister Diane, nephew Curt, niece Erin (Chad) and greatnephews and nieces Grant, Geo and Elsa, mother-inlaw Dorothy and sister-in-law Debbie (Ron). The family wishes to thank the many caring and dedicated Health Care Professionals at the Sherbrook Street Dialysis Unit and Health Sciences Centre. In lieu of flowers please consider a donation to the Manitoba Kidney Foundation. A private family ash interment will take place at Brookside Cemetery, followed by a Celebration of Life in Moose Jaw at a later date. NEIL BARDAL FUNERAL CENTRE 204-949-2200
