The Festival of Trees is approaching quickly, and the Moose Jaw Health Foundation is excited about the new features the annual fundraiser has to debut this year. The annual Christmas-themed event will take place on Nov. 16, with an evening full of food and entertainment to enjoy. Guests can expect to be treated to the familiar glamour of the fundraiser, featuring an incredible number of Christmas tree displays from local businesses. The next morning on Nov. 17, the Family Brunch will again return, hosted by the Dr. F.H. Wigmore Regional Hospital Auxiliary. The morning will feature another chance to see the holiday displays and take part in some family entertainment. “For a lot of people, they kind of kick off the season of giving at the Festival of Trees Family Brunch,” said Kelly McElree, executive director at the MJHF. This year’s Festival theme is “Kaleidoscope,” and a handful of changes will be debuting, beginning with the meal. Dale MacKay — Top Chef Canada winner and culinary visionary behind four Saskatchewan restaurants — will be creating a delicious plated meal to be served to guests,

a first for the Festival. The Festival of Trees is also headed to a new venue, announced earlier this year. Both the evening and the morning brunch will take place in the Moose Jaw Ford Curling Centre at Mosaic Place. Ticket sales will also be a bit different this year, with the introduction of a new online option to purchase tickets for both the Festival of Trees and the Family Brunch the following morning. The annual live auction will be joined by a silent auction, facilitated through online bidding on a custom app for guests. The Festival of Trees committee hopes these new changes will only enhance the experience of the fundraiser, which still offers all of the well-loved features that attendees wait for each year. “The Festival of Trees volunteer committee, led by Jackie D’Entremont, wants the Festival to meet the needs and lifestyles of today’s Festival guests,” said McElree. “The volunteer team is working overtime to ensure that every detail of the event is taken care of and people have an absolutely wonderful time.” The MJHF looks forward to the fundraiser

each year and all proceeds from this year’s event will go towards their Mammography Matters campaign, which will purchase new mammography equipment for the Dr. F.H. Wigmore Hospital. Over the years, the Festival of Trees alone has raised about $4 million for the MJHF, with the generous support of the community of Moose Jaw. “What makes Festival of Trees so special in this community are all the volunteers that are involved and all the support we receive from businesses big and small, throughout Moose Jaw and surrounding communities,” said McElree. Tickets for the Festival of Trees have been lowered to $150 and are available by calling 1 (306) 694-0373, or for purchase through Brunch tickets, which are $28 for adults and $12 for children, can be purchased from the Mosaic Place box office, either in person or online. “For both returning guests and new guests, they’re going to be amazed by what the volunteer team has done this year,” said McElree.

Annual charity campaign at 15 Wing returns Larissa Kurz

Members of 15 Wing gathered on Oct. 23 for the official launch of this year’s Government of Canada Workplace Charitable Campaign (GCWCC), the base’s major annual fundraiser. The GCWCC is a national donation campaign organized for federal public servants and retirees across Canada, encouraging them to pledge donations to various different charities. Locally, 15 Wing uses the campaign to support groups like the Humane Society, the Moose Jaw Transition House, and Moose Jaw Literacy Camps, but donations can be pledged to any of the affiliated 85,000 registered charities and health partners on the list. The GCWCC collected $3 million in donations last year, all of which were administered by the United Way to organizations that help people in need. Sgt. Kenny Rodgers, co-chair for this year’s campaign, is looking forward to seeing base members take part in the initiative. A large amount of support from local businesses makes the event possible, and it’s important to him to see 15 Wing give back. “We’re part of the Moose Jaw community, so therefore I feel as though we should support Moose Jaw as they’ve been supporting us throughout the past 50 or 60

Ron Walker and Chief Warrant Officer Marlene Shillingford marking the official start of 15 Wing’s annual charity fundraiser. years,� said Rodgers. Members at 15 Wing take part every year, doing their share in adding to the nation’s donation total. Last year, 15 Wing raised $26,000 during the eight-week campaign, and the goal for this year is to top that number with $30,000 raised. During the official launch, the first $1,300 was collected with a spirited bidding war for a unique opportunity: a chance to pie a commanding officer in the face. Wing Commander Ron Walker stepped up for

the first round of whipped cream, followed by Chief Warrant Officer Marlene Shillingford, and a handful of others. The campaign will continue over the next seven weeks, with a slew of activities planned to engage 15 Wing members and encourage donation. From an ongoing hockey pool to weekly luncheons, a judged mustache contest, a curling bonspiel and more, members of 15 Wing will have plenty of chances to contribute to the campaign and make a

difference in people’s lives. Because the majority of the events are mostly planned for those on base, the most recognizable aspect of the campaign for the public will be the four days that Wing members spend bagging groceries at the Safeway and Superstore. From Nov, 7-10, base personnel will again be returning to help the public with their grocery checkout, and those wanting to give them some support can give them a tip donation towards their campaign goal. Taking part in the GCWCC is a unique chance for federal personnel to make a difference in their community, by supporting charities that support those in need. During his remarks, Wing Commander Walker spoke of the importance of this campaign to 15 Wing. “Helping charities is just an extension of what we do every day, by helping Canadians and being responsible for our people and the defence and security of the country,� said Walker. “The GCWCC is a great initiative to raise funds to support our community, but it’s also a great opportunity for us to bring together our community here at 15 Wing with the city of Moose Jaw,� added Shillingford.

CWO Shillingford was next to suffer the fate of a pie in the face.

Residents have been generous in supporting annual poppy campaign

“I work for you, if you require assistance don’t hesitate to contact our office!”

Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Little red poppies have started appearing on residents’ lapels and jacket collars, a clear sign that we are in the season of remembrance. Moose Jaw’s Royal Canadian Legion Branch No. 59 prepared 230 trays for distribution for this year’s poppy campaign, with nearly 30,000 poppies divided among those containers. The campaign kicked off on Oct. 25 and runs until Monday, Nov. 11. “This has nothing to do with the legion itself — the operations,” explained poppy chairman Bob Travale. “This money goes directly to veterans in need of money.” The Moose Jaw legion collected $47,000 from the 2018 poppy campaign. The legion then distributed $26,000 of that this year to veterans in need. This includes giving $5,000 to the Leave the Streets Behind campaign, a national legion program that helps veterans get off the streets. A widow of a local veteran also received $1,500 from the branch’s poppy campaign and $9,500 from provincial command. Two years ago, the legion gave $10,000 to the former Five Hills Health Region to support the new Dr. F.H. Wigmore Regional Hospital. Travale pointed out 15 Wing airbase sends its members to the hospital when necessary, while the community’s veterans sometimes wind up there. He hopes to donate at least $5,000 next year to the hospital from this year’s campaign. “It’s money well spent,” Travale added. Travale has been poppy chairman for three years. There are 70 volunteers — legion members, cadets, and Saskatchewan Dragoons —who help with the campaign. Many organize the poppy trays and distribute them to participating businesses. He also has 10 people who sell wreaths, which are then laid during the Remembrance Day ceremony at Mosaic Place. There is some etiquette to wearing a poppy. The red flower should be worn on the left lapel or breast of your jacket or shirt. To keep it from falling off, the legion sells black metal backings for $1 that replace the poppy’s pin. You should not use a Canadian flag pin to keep the poppy attached. The poppies should come off after the Nov. 11 Remembrance Day service and should not be worn as a fashion accessory, Travale said. Poppies can be worn at the funeral of a veteran, however, or during Decoration Day in June. The campaign began on Aug. 15 for Travale, who started ordering wreaths, registering for parking passes and a business licence to sell poppies, and sending letters to businesses seeking their support.

Antonio “I have a checklist and whole book I go through. It’s more like an aircraft takeoff checklist,” he laughed. “It (can) drive me crazy.” The poppy is a registered trademark of the Royal Canadian Legion. Community legions have to purchase the poppies from Dominion Command. Each box that Travale’s team puts together can hold 1,000 poppies and is worth $100 per box. Every year on Nov. 1 the legion puts up a military display at the Town n Country Mall. The display focuses on veterans and some of the Royal Canadian Legion’s activities. Last year the legion received $700 in donations on the first day of the display. Many times a poppy is given away for free, but it’s always helpful when someone gives a donation, Travale said. One thing the legion has noticed is residents of Moose Jaw and area are generous when supporting veterans or their spouses. Federal legislation indicates someone is considered a veteran if he or she has served a couple of years in the military. Members of the RCMP are also considered veterans under similar legislation. Active members can request funding from the poppy campaign, said Travale. The legion provided some money to help a member in Moose Jaw who was terminally ill. As part of the launch of the poppy campaign, the Governor General is the first to receive a poppy at the national level, while the lieutenants-governor receive the first poppy at the provincial level. Travale would like to see a similar tradition re-established in Moose Jaw, with the mayor receiving the first poppy of the campaign.

The business community in this city seems to be rapidly changing with a number of mainstay stores closing and others being bought out, mostly by Asians from what I have heard. You can’t really blame business owners for selling in a fairly poor business economy Joan Ritchie such as Moose Jaw has been EDITOR seeing recently, and you can’t really blame the Asian immigrants from wanting a better life in Canada and taking the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SNIPS) opportunity to start a new venture in this province (check out all of the opportunities listed in the SNIPS program online); many of these immigrants are new to this country and can hardly speak the language so I am wondering how they could even possibly be able to conduct business as soon as they arrive in a farming community such as we live in here. The sad thing I have noticed is that many of these new upstart businesses have a sign and a storefront but a number of them are hardly ever open during business hours, so I am wondering how this is going to be beneficial to the growth of our business community, let alone local shoppers? I could personally list a few businesses but I am sure others have noticed, as well. It seems we are losing the diverse business infrastructure that we have so enjoyed for years that promoted the support of local businesses rather than taking our hard-earned dollars to Regina or elsewhere. I am sure the new Royal Academy Chinese School will assist in teaching the Chinese immigrants the English language here, so that will help them integrate into the local community. We are getting to be a pretty multicultural city with, I think, up to 800 immigrants planned to come to Moose Jaw to live through government programs, etc.; not sure from where they all are coming but one thing is for sure…the landscape of population right here will definitely change dramatically in the next few years. That’s not a bad thing but for sure, things will change. I wonder if many of these ethnic diversities will start developing their own little communities within the city township? I think about the area where Carpere is planning a development with a 100-acre parcel of land dedicated to housing? Could this be Moose Jaw’s new ‘China Town’? Time will tell.

Saskatchewan Throne Speech promises new decade of growth for province By Ron Walter - For Moose Jaw Express A new Saskatchewan Growth Plan to continue the “sustainable economic growth” since the Saskatchewan Party took power was promised in the Throne Speech at the Legislature Oct. 23. The plan to ensure another decade of growth to 2030 will target population growth to 1.4 million from the current 1.17 million and will target 100,000 new jobs adding to the record 593,000 now working. “The new growth plan will outline our government’s growth goals for the new decade,” said the speech read by Lieut.- Gov. Russ Mirasty. Continued growth will allow increased spending on programs, said the speech. With a focus on resources — agriculture, mining, oil and gas — the new plan will be released in the fall sitting. Among the goals will be increasing agricultural value-added exports to $10 billion, by expanding and find-

ing new markets. Much of the Throne speech was devoted to listing past accomplishments and increases in spending during the last 12 years. Among new measures planned the government promises: • Investigating modular nuclear power for emissions-free power. • More funds to reduce surgical wait times. • Tougher penalties for distracted driving. • Amending the Lobbyists Act to accept recommendations by the Registrar of Lobbyists. • Creating a $10 million economic development fund for coal-producing communities of Estevan and Coronach to find replacements for coal mines that close in 2030. • Action to improve safety of First Nations children and reduce the number of children in provincial care • Better enforcement of child sup-

Caronport fire chief left speechless after receiving national award Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Caronport fire Chief Rod Appleby was left speechless when his crew presented him with a national award that recognized his 40 years of service as a firefighter. Appleby received the Governor General’s Fire Services Exemplary Service Medal and two bars on Oct. 19 during the Caronport Fire Department’s inaugural fall supper, held at the community hall in the Hamlet of Caron and attended by more than 150 people. Caronport Mayor Daniel Buck and deputy fire Chief Amy Long presented Appleby with his medal and certificate. “I had no idea this was coming,” Appleby exclaimed after taking the stage, telling the crowd he did not have a speech prepared. “This is an honour. I’m … I’m unprepared,” Appleby added, generating laughter from the crowd. Appleby stepped off the stage, but came back up a few minutes later and thanked the firefighters for their service. He also thanked the wives of the firefighters for supporting the department over the years. He pointed out that, when communication was slower, his wife and other wives had call lists and would phone firefighters to inform them their help was needed, whenever the alarm rang at the fire hall in Caronport. Sometimes those calls were made even in the middle of the night. Appleby also singled out some alumni at the supper who used to work for the fire department. “It’s a thrill for me to see people being a part of our department and then moving on to doing all sorts of other things … ,” he added. One of the interesting things during the past 40 years has been how the fire service has evolved, Appleby said later. Equipment, dispatch, the number of calls and the type of calls have all changed. It has been a challenge to keep up with those changes. What never changes, though, is responding to calls and supporting others.

Antonio “One of the best parts is we often meet people during their worst days,” he continued, “and it’s a chance to help people (and) it’s a chance to minister to people who are really in need. So that’s a fulfilling thing too.” One aspect of firefighting that Appleby has appreciated has been the dedication and commitment of volunteers, some of whom have turned into friends. Appleby moved to the Village of Caronport in 1979 to teach high school, including showing students how to complete their taxes, explained Long. He is now a substitute teacher. The fire chief can also be found as a coach encouraging his players and helping them grow as athletes and teammates. The high school assigned Appleby to the fire department in 1979 as an extracurricular activity, since the village was attempting to establish one. He served as a firefighter until 2008 but stepped in as fire chief after the previous chief died of a heart attack. Since then, Long said, Appleby has worked to grow the Caronport department and works with the village and RM of Caron to ensure his team has the resources it needs to respond to emergencies. Some new tools purchased include the Jaws of Life, new turnout gear and a new command truck. “Rod is the champion of a good deal,” joked Long, saying Appleby is also quick to help his neighbours by providing them with a bike or driving them to a doctor’s appointment. “Rod is a true testament to what it means to wholeheartedly serve your community every day,” she added. The Caronport Fire Department also serves the RM of Wheatlands, Hamlet of Caron, Village of Mortlach, Hamlet of Parkbeg and about 48 kilometres of Highway 1 and CP Rail’s mainline.

Francophone community scares up a good time with Zombie Run Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Moose Jaw’s francophone community gave residents a chance to celebrate Halloween early by hosting its ever-popular Zombies vs. Human Run. More than 30 people showed up at Connor Park on Oct. 19 as either a human-chasing zombie or a zombie-avoiding human during the The Association Communautaire Fransaskois de Moose Jaw’s fourth annual event. The organization used the activity as a fundraiser and as a community-building event. There were two levels of intensity this year: aggressive (intense) and scary (less intense). Humans wore ribbons on a belt, which indicated to the zombies the type of intensity they should use when chasing the humans. The humans also had to survive long enough and bring back as much antidote as possible to save Connor Park, Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, Canada, and the world. This event is popular because it involves zombies, Corinne Dourlent, community co-ordinator with the association, explained with a laugh. It’s a family event that encourages English and French speakers to participate, while it takes place outside on one of the last weekends

Dourlent pointed out it snowed days before, so that might have influenced people and their decision to register on that day.

Amateur historian to speak about effect of deadly Spanish Influenza By Moose Jaw Express Staff

Amateur historian Kenton de Jong will discuss the effect the Spanish Influenza had on Saskatchewan at this year’s In Remembrance program at the Western Development Museum. De Jong is a Saskatchewan photographer and travel blogger. He will be at the museum on Saturday, Nov. 9 at 2 p.m. to discuss how the influenza ravaged the world during and after the First World War and how it affected Saskatchewan. He was instrumental in having a memorial stone placed in the Regina Cemetery on Broad Street in 2017, which commemorated the 330 Regina individuals who died of the Spanish Influenza. The virus killed 50 million people worldwide in late 1918 and early 1919, with the virus spreading when troops returned home after the Armistice in November 1918. The museum will also showcase a selection of short films from the National Film Board in the theatre throughout the day about Canada at war. Regular museum admission applies to enter. WDM members get in for free. For more information call 306-693-5989.

Many people came dressed up as some type of zombie, whether as a nurse, athlete or security guard. For Mike (Whiskers) Schmidt, he came dressed as a mutated wolf-dog fighting with the humans. Schmidt and a dozen other participants from the Moose Jaw cosplay group Umbrella Corp. — Central Canada Division came dressed as security personnel from the movie franchise Resident Evil. He ex-

Schmidt enjoys dressing up in cosplay, so he decided to build a mutated wolf-dog head since the evil Umbrella Corporation turned most of humanity into zombies in the Resident Evil franchise. “It’s fun. It’s always a blast. I always enjoy this,” he added. “It’s all about the kids … It’s fun volunteering.”

Don’t Stop Believin’:

Journey, Styx, Foreigner tribute band hitting Moose Jaw A love for the classic rock hits of the vinyl era is all that’s needed to enjoy the show from Trilogy Classics Live, a fivepiece tribute band that jams out the best of legendary bands Journey, Styx, and Foreigner. The show hinges on three sets, each one dedicated to one of the three bands and their catalogue of hits. Al Langlade, lead singer with the group, promises that the lineup will include all the favourites — definitely including “Don’t Stop Believin’” by Journey and definitely not “Mr. Roboto,” by Styx. Although each band has a long list of hits, Trilogy Classics Live combines the three into one set to keep the upbeat vibe of the show. “We try to keep it as upbeat as we can,” said Langlade. “I always found that when you do at least two acts or in this case three, you’re giving the crowd something other. . . This way, it’s just hit after hit after hit, no filler whatsoever, and I think the crowd appreciates that.” In terms of the music, the group keeps their arrangements as recognizable as possible, to stay true to the classics — note for note, as Langlade describes.

Larissa Kurz

Trilogy Classics Live will bring back memories with their tribute show on Oct. 31, featuring three bands and even a few costume changes to really set the stage. (supplied) Trilogy Classics Live puts on a show that the audience will enjoy, bringing out the songs that get people singing, throwing on costumes from some of the musicians’ favourite looks, and just enjoying the music. “It’s pretty cool because the crowd sings along, I give them an opportunity where I’ll sing the first line and they’ll take the next three, no problem,” said Langlade.

The group is made up of a number of musicians familiar to the tribute band circuit, with Langlade joined by Daryl Thistel on keyboard and guitar, Brian May, lead guitar, Paul Maddigan, drums, and Rolly Saulnier, bass. Between the five of them, this group has been a part of Bee Gee’s tribute band Night Fever, Bon Jovi and Journey band Bon Journey, ABBA Mania, Foreign-

er tribute band Dirty White Boy, Pink Floyd tribute band Pink Freud, and even the longest-running Eagles tribute band called Hotel California. For Langlade, the thing that makes the stage so great for him is the easy-going nature of his bandmates on stage and seeing the audience really get into the show. “The guys that I play with, they’re fun guys. . . We don’t take ourselves too seriously,” said Langlade. “We try to stay true to the art form, like what they expect. We try to do the songs as close to the recorded versions as possible.” The show promises the audience a jump back in time with some of the most successful rock hits from the past. “They’re going to hear the songs represented note for note, and I think they’re going to have fun,” said Langlade. “We have fun and I think the audience will see that and they’ll relax and really enjoy themselves.” Tickets for the Trilogy Classic Live show on Oct. 31 are available either on the Cultural Centre’s website or at the Box Office, in person or by calling 1 (306) 693-4700.

What will happen to breast feeding if this product succeeds in the market? A tiny British Columbia-based food company is developing a plant-based alternative to cow’s milk for baby formula. Cow’s milk is the only protein source for babies, but Else Nutrition wants to change that with its new product. The TSX Venture exchange listed company with the appropriate symbol BABY is staking a claim on the worldwide $83 billion baby food market. The alternative milk product meets the global nutrition standards for baby food with a number of claimed benefits from being free of hormones, gluten, antibiotics, GMOs, corn syrup, chemicals and of course, it is organic. Except for natural carbohydrates there are no additives. The milk substitute is made from almonds and buckwheat. The product was invented by an Israeli whose child was lactose intolerant. Else says 90 per cent of baby formula is cow-milk based with the rest being soymilk based. United States studies show 50 per cent of babies are allergic or intolerant to cow’s milk with 50 per cent of babies allergic or intolerant to soymilk. That leaves a possible large niche to fill for Else. The milk alternative is supposed to taste good. That is crucial. Babies not liking a certain taste will never eat that food. A variety of milk substitutes — coconut milk, almond milk, soymilk, rice milk and hemp milk — have been developed, but little commercial product development has occurred. The Else baby formula is tackling a giant

market other large companies with deep pockets can afford the marketing campaigns required to launch a new product and get it into consumer hands. The company announced in October that it has successfully scaled up manufacturing at a Danish facility. The Israeli team that invented and initially developed the award-winning baby formula is still with Else, working towards building a fortune in the baby formula market. Else is a small company with $6.5 million cash from a recent share offering to continue product development and marketing. Sales for the first six months this year were just over $32,000, showing the business has a long road ahead before turning a profit. The product became Canadian when ASB Capital acquired it last year and listed on the Venture exchange, giving Else access to a source of funds through sale of shares. The outstanding share count is at 67.1 million with market value of $24.2 million at the recent 36 cent share value. While the Else story is interesting odds are the company will be acquired by someone with deep pockets before ever achieving profitability.

Assiniboia ethnic festival celebrates diverse cultures in community By Ron Walter - For Moose Jaw Express

People around the world celebrate their achievements with food, music and dance. The community of Assiniboia celebrated the food, music and dance of multiple cultures at the third Ethnic Festival. Mayor Bob Himbeault welcomed all the newcomers to this town south of Moose Jaw. “Certainly over the last couple of years we’ve seen the ethnic face of our community change a lot,” he said at the opening ceremony. “We’ve had people from all over the world join our community.” Dave Marit, local MLA and Minister of Agriculture described the event as fantastic. “Not only was Canada built on immigration, but Saskatchewan obviously was really built on immigration. We continue to grow because of immigration.”

Ukrainian dance After the parade of nations featuring more than 100 ethnically costumed folks, 10 hours of entertainment and ethnic food drew people from Assiniboia and district. Food booths included Ukraine, Philippines, China, Italy, Mexico, India, Greece, France with dishes from perogies to east


Are humans headed for the same fate as fabled frogs in hot water?

by Ron Walter

There is no denying that global greenhouse gases have climbed faster than ever since the Industrial Revolution or that global climate is warming. The facts are

there for all to see. Yet the issue is full of controversy. The complicated science encourages skeptics. Few of us are equipped with the education to fully understand the hows and whys of climate change and greenhouse gas emissions. Envisioning a world made chaotic and nearly uninhabitable from climate change is difficult to accept for many people. Religious beliefs allow people who may accept climate change to avoid the notion as this change may be the end of the world as promised in Scriptures. A future world of chaotic climate and unbearable heat is unthinkable, especially when the solution could likely involve a reduction in our comfortable lifestyle. Disputes over climate change focus on two issues. Did the Industrial Revolution and subsequent progress in development of fossil fuels cause the increased temperature and greenhouse gas emissions? Are the predictions of dangerous heat increases realistic or are the computer models in error? The common responses vary, depending on an individual’s point of view, often their wealth, and the industry in which they work. While young people around the world suffer from depression and mental illness at the constant barrage of climate change messages, most adults pay lip service to this issue. In Canada, response to measures to alleviate climate change have met opposition based on the fact that Canadian emissions

are tiny compared to the rest of the world. That argument ignores the fact Canada is one of the top five per capita emitters in the world. Tackling the global climate change issue will take a worldwide effort – an effort that is unlikely to occur. Market forces are the main instrument of change in most countries. One market force that could convince voters and governments to take the severe action needed has started to impact people. The insurance industry has been impacted by what most observers describe as climate change. In California, wildfires have caused 30 per cent to 70 per cent increases in insurance rates charged by reinsurance companies. The insurance companies dump some of the risk on reinsurance companies. Given the increasing incidences of more violent storms and fires the insurance industry has no choice but to increases premiums sharply. The global market system needs relatively cheap insurance to continue operating efficiently. Will some market force such as ever rising insurance premiums force action on climate change? Or will humanity function like the fable about frogs? According to this fable, a frog sitting in water will remain sitting even as new water poured in is hotter and hotter until the frog boils to death. Actually, frogs aren’t that dumb. Humans? Well… ___________ The Oct. 9 Trading Thoughts about the TCA crash and TV application should have said the last TV broadcast in Moose Jaw was in 1979. The station controls were still in Moose Jaw until 1983.

REFLECTIVE MOMENTS Minority looking for friends in low and high places Dear Liberal Minority Leader and Friends You May Acquire: With optimism, I congratulate you for winning a minority in the recent federal election. Certainly I understand you would have preferred a majority, but then we don’t always get what we want or feel we deserve. It is obvious you have work ahead as the party chooses to move forward with your promises to govern for all Canadians, including those in Alberta and Saskatchewan where Joyce Walter there is no Liberal representation. We are in a wilderness of For Moose Jaw Express blue, with the Conservative leader suggesting he is the leader of a “government in waiting.” Naturally, you Mr. Minority Leader, hope to keep Mr. Scheer waiting a long time, maybe four years, as you negotiate your way through alliances and unexpected friendships that will give Canadians a chance to study how you will navigate these uncharted waters. Good luck to all of you. While the hour was too late for some senior citizens and working folks to stay up to hear all the leaders speak on election night, it has been reported that most were gracious, although one or two had an edge in their voices that could be interpreted as petty or school-grade-ish. If that is true, shame, shame. That is no way to get your foot in the door to help govern the land. You likely, Sir, were aware of unhappiness in the land in the immediate days after the results were posted. You won, sort of, but others claimed you lost and will continue to lose face if you don’t roll over and submit to the rude letters of certain premiers who don’t wish to give an inch in their dread of whatever is in store for the country. Some thoughtful recourse on your part will be necessary to calm the school yard bullies who believe shouting is the best way to grab your attention. But please, be measured in your response, and whatever you do, don’t make promises you can’t or won’t keep. I would like to kindly tell you that your promise to raise the Old Age Security Pension by 10 per cent for pensioners 75 years and over is a lovely gesture for pensioners who have reached the age of 75. They certainly will appreciate the extra $729 a year. But Sir, have you forgotten the seniors who are younger than 75 and will have to wait almost a decade before being eligible for this extra money? How could you, in good conscience, not treat all seniors fairly and equally? Please explain your reasoning and then reconsider, especially in light of your eloquent words that said seniors “deserve to enjoy their golden years to the fullest.” Right now my golden years are looking mighty blue. So, Mr. Minority Leader, your actions in the coming months will be watched carefully. Most of us are prepared to give you time to make new friends and get all your ducks lined up. But don’t keep us waiting too long. And please know that we don’t look forward to another election campaign that will mess with Christmas, Easter, Canada Day, Thanksgiving or summer holidays in the near future. Step carefully and choose to move us forward in a positive manner. Thank you.

Cow manure study finds surprising consequences For Agri-Mart Express





A natural fertilizer for crops may have less benefit than thought. Cow manure has been used as a fertilizer for decades but a joint study by the Colorado State University and Idaho University found some disturbing results in use of cow manure fertilizer. Numerous effects were found from manure that came out of cows injected with antibiotics. This manure altered microbial activity in the soil, soil respiration and ecosystem function. The plants changed the way they spread carbon below ground and take up nitro-

gen. The upshot: when cow manure with antibiotic residue is used as fertilizer less carbon is stored and more carbon is released by plants. Lead author Carl Wepking of Colorado State University said no environment on earth is free from antibiotics. Eighty per cent of antibiotics used in the United States are used on livestock. The research reviewed fertilizer effects of cow manure from animals given antibiotics and animals that didn’t receive antibiotics. Studies before this injected cow manure with antibiotics. Wepking said more research is needed but cow manure fertilizer users may want to re-think the process.

Gingerbread Square closing after 15 years downtown Larissa Kurz

Years ago, Darlene Hrechka took a look at the store front on the corner of Fairford and Main Street, and knew she wanted to run a business there. “I really think it’s the best location in town. It is prime real estate,” said Hrechka. Hrechka and her husband were the owners and operators of Emerald Glass at the time, but the lure of a new venture drew Hrechka’s attention, and so she took the plunge and made the ladies’ clothing boutique her own. “The opportunity came and I thought it sounded like something I’d like to try,” said Hrechka. “When I took it over, I named it Gingerbread Square Ladies Boutique. It was April Fool’s Day, and I remember my ad said, ‘I’m not fooling, I’m really opening.’” It was hardly her first venture into clothing retail, as she had previously owned Hunter’s Menswear as well. In fact, Hrechka and her husband had a few ventures on their plates, but she made sure to give each business her due attention. Between spending time at Hunter’s Menswear and Emerald Glass, Hrechka did all of the buying for Gingerbread Square — quality, Canadian-made merchandise, she is proud to say. After closing Hunter’s Menswear and selling Emerald Glass about eight years ago, Hrechka devoted her time to Gingerbread Square. “I was really happy to have Gingerbread Square because that gave me somewhere to go, and see still my customers and my friends,” said Hrechka. Now, fifteen years after opening, Hrechka is looking to retire, and Gingerbread Square will close. She is sad to once

Darlene Hrechka, owner of Gingerbread Square Ladies Boutique, is closing her doors at the end of the year after 15 years in the store’s Fairford St. location. again put that prime storefront location up for grabs, but she feels like it’s time for her to take a step back.

“I’ve always believed in Moose Jaw and Moose Jaw’s people, I’d just like to thank all my customers for their patronage.” -Darlene Hrechka

“It’s been a hard decision to make, but I’ve been here 15 years and I just think it’s time,” said Hrechka. “I want to retire when I’m still healthy enough to enjoy life.” She feels that her boutique offered an addition to the downtown shopping community that is still needed, and she hopes

to see the next tenant perhaps fill the gap she is leaving. “There really isn’t a [clothing] store that caters to this age group,” said Hrechka. “It’s a beautiful location. . . and I would like to see something else prosper here. It’s been good to me.” Hrechka has been a business owner here in Moose Jaw for over 50 years and has also been deeply involved in the community. She credits her continuing success to her excellent staff and the support of her customers. “The main thing is to give good service, quality clothing and keep up to date with what’s happening out there,” said Hrechka. “The staff is so important. I’ve been very fortunate, because it’s taken a lot of work off of me by having such good staff.” Retirement, for Hrechka, will be filled with family and hopefully some travelling, although she does think she will

miss being at Gingerbread Square each day. “I know I’ll continue to be busy. I kind of think of my life as a book and it’s a very full book, and this is just closing up the chapter. It isn’t the end,” said Hrechka. “I’m not even sure what I am going to do to fill my time, but I know I will miss it.” She has not chosen a concrete date to close her doors, but she is hoping to be finished by the end of December — or, whenever her stock runs out. Her closing out sale is going on now, and she’s hoping to clear her inventory by the end of the year. Hrechka had one final thing to say to Moose Jaw, after so many years as a business owner. “I’ve always believed in Moose Jaw and Moose Jaw’s people,” said Hrechka. “I’d just like to thank all my customers for their patronage. They’ve been very faithful, and I’ve made some good friends as customers, and I want to thank my staff.”

The clothing boutique has occupied a corner of the Hammond Building for a number of years, which owner Darlene Hrechka feels is a fantastic location for business.

Health Care Providers Week As we celebrate Health Care Providers Week, let’s take the opportunity to pause and think about the incredible amount of work that health care providers do every day across a myriad of classifications for their patients, clients and residents. This dedicated and caring team of professionals includes technologists with specialized skills to frontline nursing staff who provide direct hands-on care and technical expertise; administrative professionals who manage scheduling, billing, and the ‘behind the scenes’ ebb and flow of work; our environmental services workers who provide a clean, safe and healthy place for our patients, clients,

and residents to recover; our food and dietary services staff who ensure proper nutrition; our medical device reprocessing staff who ensure equipment and tools are sterilized; our facility and trades people who manage the infrastructure needs and challenges of our new and aging buildings; and our security officers who keep a watchful eye to ensure everyone in and around the buildings are safe. They all play a vital role in the provision of health care services. SEIU-West invites you to celebrate every person on the health care team. All members of the team bring value and skill to keeping our public health care system running. This

is truly the crown jewel of our provincial public service system as it reaches into so many aspects of our lives. Unfortunately, our system has been understaffed for far too long. This chronic understaffing has led to people not choosing health care as a career because of the stagnant wages, which leaves those left in the system to do more with less people – putting them at risk both physically and emotionally. We are encouraged by the commitment to build new facilities. However, we need people to provide the services that are being offered within these new buildings. You deserve quality public health care

services. We are calling on you, members of the public, to help protect your public health care system and the people who provide the services by telling the government to put care first – end understaffing. Send your letter of support today; visit Please join SEIU-West in celebrating health care providers and the incredible skill and dedication they bring to work every day.

Two in five teachers have considered quitting due to burnout, NDP survey shows Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Two in five teachers who responded to a recent survey say they have seriously considered leaving the profession due to burnout and a lack of classroom resources. That was one of the statistics contained within the Brighter Future Education Survey that the Saskatchewan NDP conducted from May to August. More than 1,400 people responded and gave feedback on what they thought of Saskatchewan’s education system. Of those who responded, 39 per cent were teachers, 28 per cent were members of the public, 21 per cent were parents, while the remaining 12 per cent were students, staff and school administrators. “With so many cuts it becomes harder and harder to do the job. This leads to feelings of helplessness, hopelessness, and feeling inadequate as a teacher. You put your heart into a job and can’t help students the way you’d like to,” one teacher wrote. Saskatchewan NDP leader Ryan Meili and MLA Carla Beck, the party’s education critic, visited Moose Jaw on Oct. 17 as part of an education town hall. The party intends to visit communities across the province to share the results of its survey. The NDP produced a small booklet containing the results from its survey. The 47 people who attended each received a copy. Teacher burnout Forty-one per cent of teachers said they rarely (36 per cent) or never (five per cent) have enough supports to help their students, the survey said. Meanwhile, 39 per cent of parents said their kids rarely (25 per cent) or never (14 per cent) receive the support they require. Some teachers have retired earlier than they intended, Beck remarked. A friend of hers did that and took a job at the library since there was less stress there. She pointed the last five to 10 years have been the most stressful on educators. A changing landscape Saskatchewan’s educational landscape has changed in the last five years, Beck said. Since 2014, more than 10,456 additional students have entered Saskatchewan

NDP MLA Carla Beck talks about data from a survey the party conducted from May to August, which gathered feedback on what people thought of the provincial education system. Photo by Jason G. Antonio schools, but per-student funding has decreased by $275. Meanwhile, the Sask. Party government promised 400 new educational assistants (EA) but has hired only 46 new people. Morale also decreased when the minister of education suggested the average class size in Saskatchewan was 19 students. NDP research revealed there are more than 40 students in some classrooms. There might be more students in schools, the survey said, but there are fewer counsellors (five per cent), fewer psychologists (nine per cent), fewer speech-language pathologists (eight per cent), fewer English-as-an-additional-language teachers (eight per cent), and fewer occupational therapists (18 per cent). The provincial government receives $14 billion in revenue every year, said Beck. She thought the province shouldn’t scrimp on education funding. “We are not talking about a pony in every classroom … ,” she added. “This is our kids’ future.” Learning conditions are worse Survey results revealed 84 per cent of teachers, 77 per cent of EAs and 55 per cent of parents said learning conditions at their school have worsened during the last three years. Only three per cent, zero per cent and 12 per cent,

respectively, said conditions have improved. “This is an indictment of the (lack of) resources in the classrooms,” Beck said. Staff morale is suffering Survey results showed 78 per cent of teachers and 65 per cent of EAs said staff morale has worsened over the last three years. Only three per cent and two per cent, respectively, said it has improved. Complex classrooms Students are facing more complex classrooms with fewer supports, the survey said. Eight-three per cent of teachers believe they have more students with additional needs than three years ago. Meanwhile, 86 per cent of EAs said they have more students with additional needs during the same period. Violent acts Seventy-four per cent of educational assistants and 42 per cent of teachers reported experiencing or witnessing violent incidents more than once a week, the survey said. Meanwhile, 38 per cent of EAs report experiencing or witnessing violence every day. Classrooms are crowded Eighty-two per cent of survey respondents said they would support a cap on class size, the data showed. One solution to this problem is to increase education funding, Beck said. It’s also about choices and priorities. She pointed out the provincial government spent $2 billion on the Regina bypass over properly funding classrooms. “We will continue to fight this and raise this issue and we won’t let the minister or government hide from it,” she added. “But we also want to be proposing solutions.”

Our Voice, Our Province: Women in Leadership conference carries powerful message Empowering Saskatchewan Women event draws participants from all over province Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

Saskatchewan has long had strong representation from women in politics and leadership roles, but it might surprise some to find out there’s still a long way to go. Finding ways to bridge that gap in equality was one of the main themes of the Our Voice, Our Province: Empowering Saskatchewan Women conference held all day Saturday at the Moose Jaw Public Library. While many of the panelists had plenty of experience in the male-dominated world of politics, Moose Jaw’s Deb Higgins has pretty much seen it all. After serving for more than a decade as the MLA for Moose Jaw Wakamow from 1999 to 2011, Higgins was elected as the first female mayor of Moose Jaw in 2012. She hosted her own talk, the History of Women in Our Province, and was impressed with the array of speakers and breadth of topics covered through the day. “It’s quite a diverse group of women, both attending and speaking, so it’s too good to get a variety of viewpoints and get some encouragement out there for younger people to get involved and see the opportunities that are out there,” Higgins said after the nine-speaker Challenges and Barriers: Real Life Scenarios panel discussion. “You have a group of women who have been involved in leadership roles or municipal and provincial politics, some for up to 20 years. So you’re getting good advice, like some of the challenges that are in front of you, and there are sessions this afternoon that will be even more helpful for anyone looking for an opportunity in

Yorkton city councillor Randy Goulden speaks during the Challenges and Barriers, Real Life Scenarios panel on Saturday morning. the future.” The project was put together by Moose Jaw city councillor Crystal Froese, who was unable to attend the event due to illness. The list of speakers and topics she was able to gather covered a wide-range of information: Spur Action Build Confidence – Ditch the Shame Game with SEIU union president Barb Cape; Impact That We Have * Making that Connection – Why We Do What We Do with RM of Weyburn reeve Carmen Sterling; Running A Campaign: Equal Voice with Equal Voice Saskatchewan chair Lindsay Brumwell and Equal Voice Prairie coordinator Paige Kezima; and How to Lead Like a Women With 1,000 Things to Do Today with Saskatoon city councillors Hilary Gough and Mairin Loewen. Also on hand were Warman mayor Sheryl Spence, Yorkton city councillor Randy Goulden, Cowessess First Nation leader Lucy Pelletier and Lori Deets with the

Discovering farm operation’s financial health By Ron Walter - For Agri-Mart Express



Financial health on the farm can be diagnosed by using a set of financial ratios that determine health and compare performance. The analysis involves ratios outlining debt,

expenses and exposure to debt. Farm analysts recommend using three to five years of farm operating data to get a clearer picture of what’s happening. A ratio called debt service coverage shows how cash flow from operations is used to cover debt. The minimum expected for agriculture is $1.25 cash flow for every dollar of debt. If cash flow is $1 or below, debt service isn’t covered, Another important ratio is the operating expense ratio which shows expenses as a percentage of revenues. The lower the rate the better financial health of the farm operations. A ratio that is too high indicates possibility of losses, especially if a sudden unexpected expense comes. A 60 per cent ratio means 60 per cent of revenue goes to variable expenses. The leverage ratio - debt divided by equity - associates’ debt and equity as ways of financing farm operations. Higher ratios put the farm in a vulnerable position should a sudden shock such as lower commodity prices or lost markets arise. Manitoba Agriculture suggests a ratio of .4 - 40 cents debt to $1 of equity - is strong. Ron Walter can be reached at

Wakamow Aboriginal Community Association. “There’s urban, there’s rural, there’s larger cities, there’s smaller communities represented here,’ Higgins said. “And we actually got a pretty good attendance from Saskatoon and Regina, south to Weyburn and around Moose Jaw. So that’s nice too, since it builds the opportunities to do

this again in another year or so.” For Higgins, the message she passed on was as straightforward as it was insightful. “Number one, being as well-prepared as you can be, but also having confidence and knowing that we’re all ordinary people no matter what role you’re in,” she said. “We all make mistakes; we all have good days and bad days and there are challenges you have to work through. Anyone in that room is more than capable of stepping up and taking on many of the elected roles and leadership roles out there. “And then, politics can be at all different levels. You can sit on boards and committees and make contributions that way, volunteer on many things. And then there are venues where you can take a more visible role.” With the success of the event this time around, the potential is there for the conference to become an annual event. “It’s definitely something that we’d like to see happen again,” Higgins said.

Throne Speech Ceremony Begins Fall Legislative Session MLAs Column

Warren Michelson Moose Jaw North

Warren Michelson, MLA

The Throne Speech for the Fall Legislative session was presented last Wednesday by Saskatchewan’s newly-appointed Lieutenant Governor, the Honourable Russ Mirasty. The Throne Speech Ceremony is always a special formality, celebrating our valued democratic tradition and is a reminder of the important job we have as your elected representatives. I remember the first Throne Speech I attended as a newly-elected MLA. I was struck by the huge honour of the trust constituents had placed in me, and I became even more determined to live up to that honour and responsibility. Last week’s Throne Speech was bittersweet; while it laid out the Government’s plan of a new decade of growth, it was my final Throne Speech as your elected representative for Moose Jaw North. The work of the Legislature was outlined in the Speech from the Throne, entitled “A New Decade of Growth”.

During this session, the new Saskatchewan Plan for Growth will be released, ensuring that the strong growth seen in the past 12 years continues through the next decade. Legislation that will be implemented during this session includes Clare’s Law, which allows police to disclose information that could help protect potential victims of interpersonal violence. In all, about 30 pieces of legislation will be introduced and debated, to be implemented in the Spring Session. This includes: • regulation of vaping and vaping products; • tougher penalties for cell phone usage while driving; • introducing a new Fisheries Act to provide greater protection against invasive aquatic species; • strengthening the enforcement of maintenance orders for child support payments; and • amending The Saskatchewan Employment Act to increase parental leave by eight weeks to ensure that employees who are entitled to the new shared parental Employment Insurance benefit have job protection while using the new leave benefit and to extend employment leave to individuals who are running for election to a First Nations Band Council. The fall session will see the opening of the Regina Bypass, the biggest transportation project in Saskatche-

wan’s history. Other elements of the fall session will include: • continuing the constitutional challenge to the federal carbon tax in the Supreme Court; • introducing and funding of a plan to reduce surgical wait times; • taking measures to improve the safety and well-being of First Nations children; and • continuing to explore the potential for small modular reactors to produce emissions-free electricity using Saskatchewan uranium. The Throne Speech renewed our government’s commitment to mental health and addiction services, and to increased support for mental health services provided by Community Based Organizations and the Canadian Mental Health Association. To ensure the growth of our agriculture industry, measures to increase agricultural value-added exports to $10 billion by 2030 will also be outlined in the new Growth Plan. Our Constituency Office will be open during the Legislative Session. Please contact us if we can be of any assistance. I appreciate your trust in me to represent you it the Legislature and I will endeavour to live up to that trust during the coming weeks.

NDP to make stressed education system focus of 2020 provincial election Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

If the Saskatchewan NDP has its way, the 2020 provincial election will focus on the province’s stressed education system and ensuring schools have adequate resources to succeed. The party highlighted just how stressed the system is — along with how much students, teachers, support staff and school divisions are struggling — by unveiling the results of the Brighter Future Education Survey it conducted this summer. Party leader Ryan Meili and education critic Carla Beck presented the results during an inaugural education town hall in Moose Jaw on Oct. 17. The NDP intends to hold more education town halls across the province to unveil the survey results and speak with people about the education system. “The plan all along was to gather those responses from people around the province and to bring back what we heard to (those) people,” explained Beck, a former school trustee. “This isn’t the end of the discussion; we’re just starting.”

The party is taking what it has heard about education and moving with that data toward the 2020 election, where it plans to make education a ballot box question, she continued. The plan will ensure Saskatchewan is the best place to be, teach and raise a child. Education is an area to which the NDP has been committed for years and is something that needs to be done right, Beck said. She thought the provincial government was unwilling to help ensure the system flourish. “We’re willing to do what it takes … ,” she remarked. “We know what’s wrong with classrooms. We need to start moving toward commitments, (toward) a plan for next year, a plan for the next five years (and) for the next generation.” From the town hall meetings, Beck hopes more people come forward to “tell their story” about what’s happening in the classrooms, along with ideas about what should be done for students. It also wants to “put to rest the ridiculous things” the minister of education has talked about, such as 19 students being the average

class size across the province. “It really makes people feel disrespected. It makes people feel like they haven’t been heard,” said Beck. “We want to show people that we have heard them and that we are prepared to do what it’s going to take in order to reverse this trend we’re seeing in our classrooms.” The NDP’s education survey says there “is a crisis in our classrooms.” The party didn’t start using the word crisis until a year ago, but was accused of hyperbole once it started saying it, Beck explained. She uses crisis because that’s what she is hearing and because she has spoken with people who break down emotionally while talking to her about education. It doesn’t matter what community the NDP visits, party MLAs are hearing in every corner of the province similar complaints that not enough is being done to support students or fund classrooms. “People have been … trying to do more with less, year after year,” Beck said. “And we’re coming to the point where people don’t have more to give.” NDP MLAs are hearing about teachers burning out, concerns about mental health supports, and the lack of special health-care professionals. Beck thought this is something that needs to be addressed since it becomes a bigger problem every year it’s not handled. There is also a lack of support outside the classroom, she continued. There are fewer resources in communities to support students, children and families. It can be difficult to focus on learning and teaching when schools are focusing on ensuring kids have enough to eat and ensuring classrooms are safe. “Those who are anywhere near our schools know what we’re talking about. They know we’re not embellishing … ,” Beck added. “People are feeling like they can’t keep afloat much longer.”

Charity rock concert celebrating the healing power of music Larissa Kurz

Regina’s loudest fundraiser is returning for another weekend of talented musicians playing some of the best music from past legends, all in support of music therapy. Rock is Dead IV will fill the Exchange in Regina on Nov. 8-9, with two shows that cover all the classic genres — classic rock, punk, disco, funk, metal, and everything in between. Both nights will feature a collective of local musicians and artists from both Regina and Moose Jaw, shredding out familiar guitar riffs that pay tribute to the musicians of the past that have touched their lives. Nov. 8 will open the weekend with a set that pays homage to the memorable funk era of music, to kick off the weekend. The show will cover all the legends, with some guest appearances from superstar faces. On Nov. 9, the show will take a more classic spin, with covers of past legends from the classic rock genre as a special tribute for musicians who have been lost only recently. The event is organized as a fundraiser for Music Heals Canada, a non-profit organization that provides music therapy in provinces across Canada. The organization implements programs for

• pressure washers • rentals

• grasshoppers

all ages, from seniors to youth, and in a range of places — hospitals, long-term care facilities, youth centres, and more. All of the musicians involved have a personal connection with Music Heals and came together to create this fundraiser four years ago. “We’re just a bunch of different people who have come together, who have been touched with mental health and trauma at one point,” said Nicole Hebert, one of the group. “With the organization we’re fundraising for, Music Heals, we’re all very passionate about the music as a type of healing.” Last year, their donation reached just over $800 for Music Heals Canada, after a sold-out crowd filled their venue. Hebert is expecting to see the same kind of turnout this year as well. Tickets for the shows are $20 per night or $30 for both and can be purchased at Vintage Vinyl in both Regina and Moose Jaw. Tickets are also available at The Exchange, either online or by calling 1 (306) 780-9495, or at the door on the night of either show. Doors open at 7 p.m. both nights, with bands taking the stage at 7:30 p.m.

CUPE workers threaten to strike over fairer wages, improved work hours By Moose Jaw Express Staff

Another group of union workers is threatening to strike if it doesn’t receive fairer wages and a better work-life balance. Members of CUPE Local 600 have voted 94 per cent to take job action up to, and including, a full withdrawal of services, the union explained in a news release. The union represents nearly 385 workers across Saskatchewan who work in the Ministry of Social Services and Ministry of Central Services. These employees deliver frontline care and support to the province’s vulnerable residents. The two main issues at the bargaining table are better wages and improved hours of work. The local is not yet in a legal strike position and will not be until essential service negotiations are complete. Negotiations on essential services are expected to start in the near future.

“Recent changes to how the provincial government provides services for people living with intellectual disabilities is putting more pressure on our members,” said Jacalyn Luterbach, president of CUPE Local 600. “Workload and caseload are increasing across the board and in every classification, and the current shift schedule in crisis and planned respite homes is unsustainable.” Employees at these offices work six days straight of eight-hour shifts with fewer than two days off, the news release said. These shifts are a combination of day, evening and night shifts with quick turnarounds. Often staff are working two to three different shifts in a week. Employees are exhausted and have little time off for home life. Union employees have reported facing problems of fatigue, health problems and mood issues due to time away from work for rest, Luterbach said in the news release.

The union is seeing increased sick time, increased reliance on overtime and the employer mandating more increases. “Our members are being run ragged. We deserve a solution before this health and safety issue gets any further out of control,” he stated. CUPE Local 600 is proposing to move from an eighthour shift model to a 12-hour shift model, which is the standard throughout the health authority and at the former Valley View Centre, said the news release. This proposal would not cost the employer any extra money and could end up saving money by reducing overtime. “Our members are asking for a fair monetary offer and for a shift schedule that makes sense,” added Luterbach. “This strike mandate shows that our members are united and willing to fight for a fair deal.”

Weather contributes to solid turnout for Moostletoe Tour Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Many of the artists on this year’s Moostletoe Tour were enthusiastic about the number of art lovers who visited each studio and credited the beautiful weather with the turnout. The ninth annual Moostletoe Artists Studio Tour took place on Oct. 19 at nine different locations through Moose Jaw. The Moose Jaw Museum and Art Gallery and the Yvette Moore Gallery sponsored the event, which featured artists showcasing their latest creations and discussing their works with visitors. Painter Laura Hamilton thought it was difficult to part with the creations she had made since she becomes so attached to them. “They’re like my children,” she said as visitors toured her house studio. “When I paint, they become a part of me. Someone buys it and it rips your heart out.” Hamilton and other artists confirmed that more than 100 people had toured through their studios before noon, before slowing down for lunch and then picking up again afterward.

Metal artists Bill and Laurette Keen were thrilled to show visitors some of the hand-made metal pieces that he had made and she had painted. The Keens have been part of the tour for about seven years, explained Mrs. Keen. They participate in the tour since it’s easier to have people come to their gallery than to pack up everything and set it up elsewhere. “We’re getting older and it’s a little bit easier,” she chuckled, adding it’s also great to have a home with a finished basement in which to show their works. It was so busy at the Yvette Moore Gallery that its founder didn’t have time to sit down to paint until the late afternoon. Moore noted the rush was similar to having Christmas in October. She added that participating in the tour also gave exposure to some of the work of other artists at her gallery.

Council gets update about recycling contract 18 months after its renewal Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

It has been more than a year since the municipality renewed an agreement with its recycling contractor, but a report about that renewal has only now come to city council. The City of Moose Jaw entered into a recycling collection services agreement with Loraas Disposal Services Ltd. on Oct. 1, 2015. The contract included an initial three-year term with two extensions of two years each. The first extension commenced on Oct. 1, 2018, and will conclude on Sept. 30, 2020. If the municipality wants to enter into the second two-year extension, it would have to do so before April 1, 2020. Council discussion City council became aware of the renewal during its Oct. 15 regular meeting when city administration presented a report about continuing with the agreement. Coun. Brian Swanson was the only councillor to point out the agreement renewal

had occurred one-and-a-half years ago. “I really don’t understand why we have this report tonight when we’re halfway through the extension,� he said. This report, he continued, should have come to council 18 months ago for review; it is now of no value. “If we were to say tonight no (to renewing the contract), we would be responsible for the second year of the contract. So why is this report here?� he added. This was an oversight, in all honesty, explained Josh Mickleborough, director of engineering services. There was staff turnover at city hall when the agreement was signed. The end date of the contract was not entered into a calendar and was therefore missed. The contract was extended simply by virtue of continuing to do the work. Given the current recycling market worldwide, plus the cost to buy out the contract and the bins, city administration

thought it was an easy decision economically to continue with the contract, he added. That explanation would have been much better to hear at the beginning of the presentation than toward the end, said Swanson, especially since council is being asked to support an extension. Council later voted 5-2 to refer the recycling contract extension to the 2020 budget discussions. Swanson and Coun. Chris Warren were opposed. Recycling contract background There are 12,500 carts that are part of the recycling program. As part of the completion of the initial term, the municipality could have bought all the carts for $50 each, or $625,000 in total, according to a report from city administration. At the conclusion of the first extension in 2020, the cost per cart would drop to $20 each and the buy-out fee would be $250,000. There would be no cost to buy the carts

at the end of the second-term extension. A grant from the Multi-Material Recycling Western organization has helped offset the recycling cost for residents. Last year’s grant was $187,579 while this year’s grant is expected to increase to $340,290. Moose Jaw charges $7.09 per month for recycling collection, compared to other Saskatchewan communities that charge between $5.09 per month and $9.25 per month, the report continued. Recycling tonnage has increased by only 0.2 per cent over the three years of collection, increasing to 1,344.4 tonnes annually from 1,341.4 tonnes. The cost to dispose of household waste is 18 cents per kilogram, while the cost to recycle is 74 cents per kilogram, the report added.

Carpere deal closure could be delayed until February Carpere Canada has issued a request for an extension on their closing date for the Southeast Industrial Park, which City Council took to an in-camera session on Oct. 23. The in-camera meeting was to detail the request, which will now be taken to open council for a formal discussion and vote. Carpere’s payment for the 780 acres of land, purchased from the City of Moose Jaw in the largest land deal in the city’s history, totals $7.8 million. A deposit of $780,000

Larissa Kurz has already been paid. Full payment was originally due at the end of October, the designated closing date for the deal that was signed in July. Now, the developers are requesting to extend the closing date to February 28, 2020. Myron Gulka-Tiechko, city clerk and acting city manager, noted that the extension could offer more time to prepare for the land development process. It was unclear whether the extension would delay any construction plans already in place.


“The intent is to try to get the approvals in place so that if there’s going to be construction, that’ll be able to facilitate any subdivisions that need to be done and preliminary work in construction so that ideally, the shovels can get in the ground for May construction season,� said Gulka-Tiechko. City Council will have decided whether to approve or deny the extension at the next regular council meeting on Oct. 28th, with results unavailable at press time.

City Hall Council Notes Section of High Street given top priority in updated snow policy Motorists who drive downtown this winter hopefully won’t need treads, now that a section of High Street West has been given priority 1 status after being forgotten in the updated snow cleanup policy. City administration initially neglected to label a stretch of High Street West from Main Street to Second Avenue Northwest as a priority 1 road in its winter maintenance policy and on its municipal snow clearing map. It was instead labelled priority 2. Priority 1 status means streets are cleared within 24 hours of a snowfall, according to the updated winter maintenance policy. Priority 2 means they are cleared within 48 hours. Map blunder Mayor Fraser Tolmie pointed out the map’s inconsistency during city council’s Oct. 15 regular meeting. He observed that the old winter cleanup policy listed those two blocks as priority 2, but the updated policy council was about to approve should mark those two streets as red, or top priority. “We’ll certainly have a look at that,” said Josh Mickleborough, director of engineering services. “I would really want to engage with … our (grader) operators to

During a major snowfall, the engineering department can use some of those side streets to pile snow for at least 48 hours, said Mickleborough. Another idea is to create windrows — or tall piles — of snow throughout downtown to make it easier for hauling. “It is sometimes disruptive, but at least we get one parking area done and one travel lane done,” he added. Communicating with residents Communication needs to improve with residents about when crews will be plowing, said Coun. Scott McMann, who recalled that that information was better distributed years ago. Some of the signs indicating streets are snow routes are also unclear, he continued. He was unsure whether he could park on Fairford Street last year. Moreover, the signs don’t indicate when the snow routes are in effect. There will always be challenges with mobilizing crews and informing residents of where they will be, said Mickleborough. The department will work with the communications manager to provide accurate information quickly.

Updated snowfall policy aims to clear priority roads within 96 hours Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

An updated municipal winter maintenance policy means snow crews will now work around the clock to clear streets after a major snowfall while also completing priority routes within 96 hours. For the 2019-20 winter maintenance program, three seasonal employees with the Department of Engineering Services have transitioned to permanent positions and will join the program during the winter months. These full-time permanent staff will allow the municipality to offer a split shift during the winter, with one crew working during the day and the other working in the evenings and throughout the night. The use of contracted services will also continue for some services, such as hauling, and as required, especially during heavy snowfalls. City council voted 6-1 to approve the updated winter maintenance policy during its Oct. 15 regular meeting. The policy reflects the municipality’s new level of service, primarily the completion of priority routes within 96 hours. Coun. Brian Swanson was opposed. Priority ratings for snow clearing have been revised, according to a report from city administration. Priority one routes include arterial roads and emergency

services buildings. Priority two areas include bus routes, while priority three areas include the remaining collector roads and areas with potential drainage issues. Priority four includes local collector routes, priority five areas focus on all remaining roads, while priority six areas include parking lots. The winter maintenance policy indicates priority one roads will be cleared within 24 hours of a storm; priority two roads within 48 hours; priority three roads within 72

hours; and priority four roads within 96 hours. Priority five roads will be maintained based on rutting and drainage, while priority six parking lots will be maintained based on their condition. Besides response times and increase in levels of service in clearing roads after a snowfall, it is anticipated that there will be other improvements to levels of service — such as sidewalk clearing and sanding — due to the availability of more crews, the report said. The response and level of service for other areas will be monitored so this can be further refined and communicated. “It should be noted that the first year of implementation will involve learning and working out the details and efficiencies of the new policy,” the report added. “There will be improvements to communication on operations and activities after an event, largely based on clear priorities and timelines.” As part of the 2019 budget process, council approved an extra $132,000 in funding for snow operations. The proposed policy will fit within those funding parameters established for such operations. 19111SS0 19111SS1

City Hall Council Notes Bylaw officer appointed to enforce all aspects of zoning bylaw Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

One of Moose Jaw’s bylaw enforcement officers has now been given the power to administer and enforce all aspects of the zoning bylaw. Shona Mark-Sullivan was appointed as a development officer for the City of Moose Jaw during city council’s Oct. 15 regular meeting. She was hired this past September as a bylaw enforcement officer, with one of her seeing her act as a development officer. The zoning bylaw requires that city council appoint her for the role, even though this is a personnel issue that would normally be handled internally at city hall. Section 3.5 of the zoning bylaw states, “Except for Section 11 of this bylaw, which shall

be administered by the city’s building official, the development officer shall administer this bylaw. The development officer shall be the city engineer, the city planner, the manager of engineering services or any other employee of the city authorized in writing by the council to act as a development officer for the purposes of this bylaw and the act. “For the purposes of administering and enforcing Section 11, the building official shall have the same authority under the act as a development officer.� The next regular council meeting is Monday, Oct. 28.

Extra engineering crew created to tackle backlog of water projects Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

It would take eight extra months to clear a backlog of water infrastructure projects without additional city crews, so the Department of Engineering believes adding a second in-house construction crew will clear that waitlist. The water and wastewater utility has insufficient manpower to address infrastructure repairs, while the backlog of uncompleted repairs is increasing, according to a departmental report. Current estimates suggest it could take another five years before sufficient capital investment and preventative maintenance are made that would result in reduced infrastructure failures and repairs. There are currently 137 projects that are backlogged. The department believes hiring six new permanent employees, plus turning six temporary staff into permanent staff, would achieve the necessary repairs. These 12 employees would be divided into two-full time functioning repair/construction crews and two full-time Vactor trucks teams.

VILLAGE OF CARONPORT PUBLIC NOTICE Public notice is hereby given that the Council of the Village of Caronport intends to adopt bylaws pursuant to The Planning and Development Act, 2007 to amend Bylaw 4/93 known as the Basic Planning Statement and Bylaw 5/93 known as the Zoning Bylaw. The proposed amendments are intended to enable the addition of a new R-2 Medium Density Residential District to the Zoning Bylaw which will provide for certain forms of development including but not limited to single detached, semi-detached, two-unit dwellings, multiple-unit dwellings, and dwelling groups. A concurrent amendment to the Zoning Map is being considered to rezone Lot 30, Block 2, Plan No. 76MJ09972 from R-1 Residential District to the proposed new R-2 Medium Density Residential District. The reason for this amendment is to provide for the potential development of a new multi-unit dwelling on the property described above and illustrated to the left.

A copy of the proposed amending bylaws may be viewed at the Village Administration Office. These documents are available for viewing by any person without payment of any fee between the hours of 9:00 am – 4:00 pm, Monday through Friday, excluding holidays, up to and including November 14, 2019. Council will hold a public hearing on November 14, 2019 at 7:30pm in Council Chambers located at 201 Valleyview Drive, Caronport, SK to hear any person or group that wants to comment on the proposed bylaws. Council will also consider written comments received at the hearing or delivered to the undersigned at the administration office prior to the hearing. Issued at the Village of Caronport, this 24th day of October, 2019. Gina Hallborg, CAO

The estimated annual cost to make the six temporary staff permanent and hire six new permanent employees is $597,000. The six new employees would become a second in-house construction crew. During its Oct. 15 regular meeting, city council voted 4-3 in favour to make the six temporary staff permanent and to hire six new permanent employees, with an extra $40,000 added to the 2019 waterworks budget, and to spend $500,000 from the equipment control account to purchase a Vactor truck. Mayor Fraser Tolmie and councillors Chris Warren, Crystal Froese and Heather Eby voted in favour, while councillors Brian Swanson, Dawn Luhning and Scott McMann were opposed. Council discussion There are two solutions to address the problems facing the water distribution system, said Swanson. One is to hire more people and buy a Vactor truck as per the proposal. The other option — that he favours — is to hire more independent contractors. Council was made aware of the backlog two months ago, he added. The new municipal crew will start in January, but five contractors can attack the backlog immediately. The municipality can save money by adding an in-house construction team, argued Warren. The data shows work crews have completed more projects during the last five years. That experience means excavation costs have also decreased. Background Hiring a second in-house engineering team would save

$500,000, which was being paid to engineering consulting firms to design the cast-iron program, and would save $100,000 in other contracted costs, explained city manager Jim Puffalt. The new engineering team could complete the cast-iron program for $395,000. This second crew would also address the backlog of water and sewer system repairs and then transition to water main replacement construction. An in-house design team was created earlier this year and is working to design the 2020 cast iron replacement program. Operational repair crews have made major strides in performance, leading to a 70-per-cent increase in repairs over a five-year span, said Puffalt. Similarly, operational repair costs per excavation have decreased by 48 per cent during the same time. About 200 excavations were completed in 2014, while 330 excavations were completed last year. Meanwhile, the average cost per excavation in 2014 was around $22,000 but decreased to about $14,000 last year. However, there was a year-end backlog at the end of 2014 of about 90 excavations. That backlog declined to about 30 projects the next year and then increased to about 90 again in 2018. Contractors have been used over the years in repair activities. In 2014 about 10 excavation projects were contracted out, while in 2018 that number was 20. It cost the municipality $773,941 during the last three years to contract out additional hydro-vac units for projects. The next regular council meeting is Monday, Nov. 12.

City Hall Council Notes Council’s strategic plan has too much ‘fluff’ language, says Swanson Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

The City of Moose Jaw’s strategic plan is pages long and has many aspirational statements, but Coun. Brian Swanson believes all that “fluff� can be edited down to one effective sentence. The municipality’s strategic plan contains the vision, mission and values that council and administration want to guide the community into the future. It has been developed during the last 16 months, after council and the strategic leadership team held a planning meeting in June 2018 with author Doug Griffiths, who wrote “13 Ways to Kill Your Community.� Background The purpose of that session, explained city manager Jim Puffalt, was to identify new opportunities, actions and tactics to successfully move the community forward. From the meeting, the leadership team understood that new ways of implementing policies and practices were needed to

be effective in a changing environment. Moose Jaw has moved away from a traditional value and mission statement since every community wants to be a progressive and sustainable community of choice where people want to live, work and raise a family, Puffalt continued. It’s possible for council and city administration to do that and recognize diverse opinions if decisions are made for the good of the community while following accepted values. Council and the leadership team are holding another meeting with Griffiths on Wednesday, Nov. 6 to fine-tune the objectives going forward, Puffalt told city council during its Oct. 15 regular meeting. Council later voted 6-1 to receive and file Puffalt’s report. Swanson was opposed. Council discussion When this was discussed behind closed doors two weeks ago, it was pointed out

that council is three-quarters of the way through its mandate and yet is still working on its strategic plan, said Swanson, who noted he is not a fan of strategic planning. While the strategic plan is pages long, Swanson refined the document down to 21 words: “Rehabilitate the city’s core infrastructure, water distribution and roadways, in a cost-effective manner that seeks to minimize impact on property taxpayers.� “I believe that sums up what duty calls for us very concisely,� he said. “All this other stuff I consider fluff (and) bureaucratic quicksand, where elected officials willingly diminish their role and responsibility.� There is more than one area that city council and the community have recognized as needing attention, said Mayor Fraser Tolmie. For example, the West Park Commu-

nity Association spoke to council about upgrading the playground in that area. While residents want their roads paved and cleared, garbage collected and recycling picked up, they also want to live in a safe community where they don’t fear being robbed, he continued. The values statement is important since it was more than just council that developed it, Tolmie pointed out. It was also the chamber of commerce and Tourism Moose Jaw that contributed ideas. “And they care about different things and yes, we do have a core job, which we have been working on,� Tolmie said, “and we have spent more money in the past three years on infrastructure than in any period of this city’s history. “There is no fluff,� he added. “Our community and our council (are) working very hard to improve this city and improve it for the citizens of Moose Jaw.�

Appeals board gives two more property owners approval to construct buildings Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Two more property owners have received approval to construct accessory buildings even though the structures contravene the City of Moose Jaw’s zoning bylaw. The Development Appeals Board gave approval to Angus Wilson, at 1027 Wolfe Avenue, and Richard MacGillivray, at 1011 Lillooet Street West, to proceed with their projects during the board’s meeting on Sept. 25. Wilson requested that he be given approval to construct an accessory building on his property that has a combined floor space of 112.7 square metres (1,213 square feet), contrary to the 83.61 square metres (900 square feet) prescribed in the zoning bylaw. Wilson initially submitted an application to city hall for a development permit on July 15 to construct a 720-square-foot garage. His intention was to remove the existing sheds once the garage was completed. However, he decided to keep the sheds and appealed two conditions on the development permit that prevented him from having those buildings. After reviewing the application, the appeals board ruled that the project should be approved based on three factors: • The variance would not interfere with the health, safety and welfare of residents, while the lot is large enough that the proposed building would not affect the residential nature of the area • The size of the lot would not cause visual obstructions or concerns for the health, safety and welfare of residents, while the existing buildings were well kept and blended into the yard • The variance would not injuriously affect the neighbouring properties; no letters of concern were received from neighbouring property owners

MacGillivray requested a variance since the proposed accessory building he wanted to construct would mean 42 per cent of the overall property would be covered, contrary to the 40 per cent prescribed in the zoning bylaw. He wants to build a two-car garage on the rear of his property with a floor space of 432 square feet. Since the overall property is 1,100 square feet in size, the proposed garage would increase site cover to 42 per cent. After reviewing the facts, the appeals board granted the variance to MacGillivray based on the same reasons given for Wilson’s request.

Warriors snap skid with overtime win in Saskatoon Tracey records hat trick, four-point game in 5-4 victory Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

Moose Jaw Warriors forward Brayden Tracey has often looked like the best player on the ice this Western Hockey League season, regardless of who the Warriors oppose. On Sunday afternoon, the stats backed him up. Tracey scored three times and assisted on Ryder Korczak’s game-winning goal 28 seconds into overtime as the Warriors took a 5-4 win over the Saskatoon Blades in Saskatoon. The win snapped a six-game losing streak for the Tribe and saw them return to .500 in the East Division standings with a 6-6-1-1 record. They had dropped a 4-2 decision to Calgary on Friday. Warriors 5, Saskatoon 4 OT Tracey’s hat trick included a pair of power play goals and put the Warriors up 3-1 26 seconds into the second period. The veteran-laden Blades wouldn’t go down without a fight, though, as Chase Wouters scored his second of the game and Riley McKay would add a pair of markers to see Saskatoon take a 4-3 lead with 5:04 gone in the final frame. That set the stage for Bryden Kiesman to score the first of his WHL career with 4:29 to play and send the game into overtime.. Bailey Brkin turned aside 26 shots to earn the victory, Nolan Maier had a decidedly less-busy night in the Saskatoon net, turning aside a total of 10 shots. Calgary 4, Warriors 2 The Warriors might not have found the win column against Calgary, but the end result was far better than the two teams’ previous

Warriors Cory King and Calger Anderson attempt to Hunter Campbell from getting a shot on net.

Warriors goaltender Bailey Brkin gets back to the post just in time to stop this wrap-around attempt by Devan Klassen. Western Hockey League contest a week ago. The Hitmen held off a furious first-period push by the Warriors and would eventually go on to a 4-2 victory after winning 7-3 in their previous meeting on Oct. 18 in Calgary. “We didn’t have a very good game the last time we played Calgary, we weren’t very good defensively,” said Warriors head coach Tim Hunter. “We played much better in Lethbridge and were able to build off that. We worked on a lot of things in practice to implement in our game and I thought we played very well tonight.” The contest featured a milestone for a member of the Warriors, as defenceman Braden Miller scored his first WHL goal at the 11:37 mark of the second period, taking a cross-ice feed from Tate Popple and rifling a shot from the slot over Hitmen goaltender Brayden Peters’ blocker. “It was just a great heads up play by Pops, he was able to find the middle of the ice and I was able to get a quick shot off and it went in,” Miller said. “I was pretty excited about it, it’s the first of many I hope and I’ll keep going from there.” Riley Stotts and Josh Prokop scored power play goals two minutes apart late in the first period to give Calgary a 2-0 lead out of a frame dominated by the Warriors – the shots sat at 10-2 for the Tribe at one point in the period before finishing 11-7. Miller scored the only goal in the second period before Calgary’s Jonas Peterek and the Warriors’ Owen Hardy exchanged markers in the third. Carson Focht added an empty net goal with 1:22 to play. Bailey Brkin turned aside 22 shots in the Warriors goal, Peters would finish with 20 stops on the night.

One visiting player from the Calgary Hitmen with an exceptional amount of interest in the game was defenceman Jett Woo, who played the first three seasons of his WHL career with the Tribe and was drafted by the Vancouver Canucks while playing with the team. He would finish the contest with assists on the first two Hitmen goals. “I think for the most part it feels better to get the win,” Woo said. “Getting a couple of points here is pretty special, too, but our whole team played pretty well, our goalie stood on his head and it was a big win for us.” While heading to Mosaic Place through the visitor’s entrance and residing in the visitors dressing room was admittedly strange for the 19-year-old rearguard, it was a regular hockey game once the puck dropped. “It’s funny, the only time I’ve been in there was during training camp before main camp,” Woo said with a grin. “It was definitely different… obviously I have a lot of buddies over there and hopefully it was just as memorable for them as it was for me.”

AAA Warriors cap solid week with loss to Mintos

Warriors take 2-1 win over Beardy’s Saturday before dropping 4-2 decision to Prince Albert Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The Moose Jaw AAA Warriors weren’t able to continue their winning streak through this past weekend, but the end result still sees the Saskatchewan Midget AAA Hockey League squad showing plenty of promise. The Warriors took a 2-1 victory over the Beardy’s Blackhawks on Saturday, Oct. 26 before dropping a 4-2 decision to the Prince Albert Mintos the following afternoon in a pair of contests at Mosaic Place. As a result, the Warriors now hold a 7-40-0 record, good enough for sixth place in the league, one point out of fifth place and a spot in the Mac’s Midget AAA tournament. Prince Albert 4, Warriors 2 The Warriors appeared to do enough to win their fifth game in a row, but a lack of early finish proved to be their undoing. “We definitely generated enough to put some goals in the net there, but it comes

AAA Warriors goaltender Chase Coward had some company at the side of the net on this play. down to executing,” said Warriors coach Trevor Weisgerber. “We have to bear down and execute on those opportunities, it was the same thing last night, we had plenty of chances and plenty of grade A chances. We just need guys to shoot not just for the sake of shooting but shooting

to score goals.” The Warriors outshot the Mintos 39-25 and dominated zone time in the early going, but it was Prince Albert – with goals from Dawson Springer and Austin McLean – that led 2-0 through two periods. Sam Boldt got Moose Jaw on the board with a power play goal 4:07 into the third, only to see Chase Bertholet give P.A. back their two-goal lead 56 seconds later. After Austin McLean scored an insurance marker midway through the period to put the Mintos up 4-1, Davis Fry closed out scoring for the Warriors with 1:05 to play. Chase Coward made 21 saves in the Warriors net. Warriors 2, Beardy’s 1 Parker Douglas scored the game-winning goal 4:57 into the third period as the Warriors won their fourth straight. Ben Wourms-Rowe scored in the first period for Moose Jaw, Cole Duppereault

scored for Beardy’s in the second. Coward had a 32 save performance in the win. The Warriors are back in action Wednesday when they travel to Regina to face the Pat Canadians.

The Warriors celebrate Sam Boldt’s third period goal.

4A Girls High School Soccer Provincial Submitted by John Morris

In the girls side, Peacock, Vanier and Central all competed in the Regional Soccer tournament in Regina for a chance to make it to provincials. Peacock played a strong quarter final game that ended scoreless against Yorkton Sacred Heart. The game was settled with penalty kicks with Yorkton moving on to the semi final against Central who were silver medalists at last year’s provincials. The Cyclone girls won 1-0 over Yorkton Sacred Heart. Vanier girls won their regional quarter final game against Regina Luther in a tight 4-3 contest and then won a semi final against Notre Dame 3-0. Vanier and Central then played the regional final in a well fought struggle that had to be settled with penalties. Vanier won 5-4 on penalty kicks and will have now appeared in 4A Girls Provincials held in Yorkton this past weekend. Vanier girls coached by Daniel Atkins, will have made their third

Stunning success: Spirits ride momentum to 4A girls soccer crown Vanier dominates provincial tournament Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The St. Louis Blues can tell you all about how finding just a bit of momentum at the right time can lead to incredibly big things. For the Vanier Spirits high school girls soccer team, it all started with an extra-time win over Regina Luther in the very first game of the regional championships. It took two periods of extra time to find their 4-3 win, but once they had it, they wouldn’t lose again this season. The Spirits would win their next two contests to claim the regional title before posting a pair of 4-1 wins at the 4A girls high school provincial soccer championship in Yorkton this past weekend, defeating Martensville in the semifinal and Se Se Wa Hum in the gold medal game. “The girls just decided to step up in regionals, and if you looked at our regular season, it didn’t look like we were provincial champions,” said Spirits coach Daniel Atkins. “But when it came to regionals, Luther was beating us 2-1 at the half and it was a bit wake-up call. We were able to win in double extra time and from then we haven’t let down in intensity. We’ve kept playing that kind of game ever since.” The gold medal game offered a perfect example. Vanier scored on one of their first chances in the game and built a 3-0 lead at half. All that was with the wind at their backs,

Not happening. The Spirits scored immediately after the break and would hold their 4-0 lead until late in the game when Se Se Wa Hum scored to break the shutout. It would be too little too late, and just like that Vanier were provincial champs. “We struggled this season initially, I

thought at the start of the season we had the potential to make provincials, but we didn’t play that way during the regular season,” Atkins said. “And then playing teams like Swift Current, it’s ultimately not a big confidence boost. But the girls showed up when they needed and that’s maybe the story of a lot of playoff wins.” The team took the field this season with a single Grade 12 in Meisie Chamberlain, and to say the least the veteran stand-out

was happy to see the incredible turn of fortune. “Having the teams we’ve had in the past really upped the level for our team this year, I think,” she said shortly after the team was honoured with a school assembly on Monday morning. “Until the start of the season we had a lot of doubt in ourselves, we weren’t taking practices seriously, and losing to Central during the season kind of put a damper on things.” Then came regionals, and everything changed. “Going into regionals we thought we’d be playing our last game,” Chamberlain said, “but that win motivated us and showed us that we can do it.” As well as things turned out this season, the Spirits could be even stronger next season with so many returning players. “Absolutely,” said Atkins. “We’re not going to predict that we’re going to win provincials next year, but someone is going to have to step up big to stop us. We lose two players, but we still have a whole team coming back that’ll be really strong.” Penalty shots… The win was the third provincial title for Vanier in the past 12 months after Allison Grajczyk-Jelinski won the provincial cross-country title and the Vikings boys volleyball squad the 4A championship last season.

Original 16 Cash League standings taking shape after recent action BTN Accountants, KMS hold perfect records at top of league Randy Palmer -Moose Jaw Express

After a series of close games in the first few draws of the Great Western Original 16 cash league, there were plenty of comebacks on tap on Wednesday night at the Moose Jaw Ford Curling Centre. But through it all, a pair of familiar names find themselves at the top of the standings. BTN Chartered Accountants (Danielle Sicinski) improved to 4-0 with a 7-6 victory over Walchuk Masonry (Ralph Courtnage, 2-2). Sicinski carried a 5-4 lead through five ends before using the hammer to pick up a deuce and go up 7-4 right after the break. Courtnage would add single points the next two ends but would get no closer taking the loss. KMS (Ben Gamble) also ran their record to 4-0 but had a slightly easier time of it against Barb Wallace, at least in the later

going. Wallace built a 3-0 lead through the first two ends, but Gamble would pick up deuces in the third and fourth frames before Wallace got one back to tie things 4-4 through five. Gamble retoook the lead with two in the sixth and stole another two in the seventh to secure an 8-4 win. Seaborn Insurance (Joel Jordison, 3-0) kept pace with the leaders with an 8-3 win over Tax Team (Murray Stroeder, 3-1). Yet again, the eventual winners found themselves trailing early after giving up two in the first. Jordison would score points the next four ends, including a steal of three in the third, to go up 6-2. A deuce in the seventh sealed the victory. Pro-Tec Electric (Stan Barnsley, 2-1) recorded the most commanding win on the night, defeating Kelsey Noyes (0-4) 10-0.

Barnsley scored two in the first and stole points in the other five ends, including four in the second and two in the fourth, before the two teams shook hands at the break. Main Street Strength and Conditioning (Jazmin Ackerman, 1-3) also needed a comeback in her game with Forged 365 (Donna Ackerman, 1-3). Three in the first and a pair in the second end had Donna leading 5-3 through four when single points by Jazmin in the fifth and sixth tied things up 5-5. Jazmin then stole three in the seventh to secure the win. John’s Music (Ryan Wenarchuk, 2-2) scored points in each of the first four ends, with steals of two in the second and third, to build a 6-0 lead over EMJ Marketing (Joe Gunnis, 1-3). Gunnis picked up one in the fifth, but with the hammer back in

his hands, Wenarchuk put up a four-spot to bring the game to an early end. Protec Video (Wade Gray, 2-2) scored in only three ends, but it was enough to take an 8-2 win over Matt Froehlich (1-3). Gray scored three in the first, another two in the third and three more in the fifth to take his six-point victory. Easy Care Living (Lorraine Arguin, 1-3) staged a late-game rally to defeat Kal Tire (Bob Desjarlais (3-1). Desjarlais led 3-1 after four ends when Arguin took the lead with three in the fifth. Steals of single points in the sixth and seventh sealed the 7-3 win. League action continues every Wednesday night at the Moose Jaw Ford Curling Centre.

Swift Current defeats Central in football semifinal Colts to travel to Yorkton next weekend for league championship game Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The Saskatchewan Rural High School Football League championship will feature a pair of non-Moose Jaw teams in 2019. The Swift Current Colts and Yorkton Raiders will play for the title next Saturday in Yorkton after the Colts took a 10-2 win over the Central Cyclones at Gutheridge Field and the Raiders downed the Weyburn Eagles 35-0 in Yorkton. “Swift Current, hats off to them, they played an awesome game, they played a great defensive game against our offence and we just struggled on the ball,” said Cyclones head coach Colin Belsher. While the Colts themselves were unable to make Central pay on the scoreboard when it came to the aforementioned turnovers, when they did happen they were crushing. That included three straight fumbles or interceptions on three consecutive possessions late in the first half, with the Colts recovering three Central fumbles and recording two interceptions by the time the contest was over. Swift Current scored the only touchdown of the game with just over a minute gone in the second quarter when standout receiver Rhett Vavra broke a 65-yard run for a major. He would finish the game with eight carries for 134 yards and two catches for 28.

Swift Current Colts receiver Rhett Vavra looks to draw a penalty as Central’s Kienan Kleisinger covers the play. Central’s only points came off a safety with 7:04 to play before halftime; the only points in the second half came off a 24-yard field goal from Ethan Kurtz. Ryan Vincent led the Cyclones offence with 22 carries for 116 yards. In Yorkton, Val Declines carried 14 times for 179 yards and two touchdowns as the defending champion Raiders continued their perfect season and returned to the league final. Noah Bymak, Jaxon Boyda and Josh Haczkewicz also

The Colts would recover this fumble but wouldn’t be able to score on the drive. had majors as Yorkton led 14-0 at half. Football season in Moose Jaw isn’t done yet, as the Tier II final between the Peacock Tornadoes and Estevan Elecs will take place on Saturday, Nov. 2 at Gutheridge Field.

Vanier wins provincial girls soccer title, Central reaches championship final Spirits defeat Se Se Wa Hum 4-1 to claim girls title in Yorkton, Central falls 2-1 to Luther in boys final Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

As the old saying goes, it’s not how you start the season that matters, it’s how you finish. The Vanier Spirits high school girls soccer team posted a pair of commanding wins to claim gold at the 4A girls provincial championships in Yorkton this past weekend, coming off a middle-of-the-road regular season that saw them fall in the semifinals. Vanier went into the tournament as the second seed and opened with a 4-1 win over Martensville on Friday. The other side of the bracket saw top-ranked Se Se Wa Hum take a 2-1 win over Yorkton Sacred Heart. The championship game this past Saturday afternoon was more of the same for Vanier, as they posted another 4-1 win to claim the title. Scoring information wasn’t immediately available. The 4A boys championships also took place at Yara Centre field in Moose Jaw this past weekend, with the Central Cyclones facing the Regina Luther Lions in the gold medal game. The contest was a far cry weather-wise from the semifinals a day earlier – with temperatures pushing 20 C for Central’s 3-2 win over Se Se Wa Hum and Luther’s 3-1 win over Humboldt on Friday, it was as pleasant soccer

Action from the provincial final between the Central Cyclones and Regina Luther Lions. weather as one could hope for. The gold medal game brought with it strong winds, bitter cold and snow much of the contest. In the end, a late first-half goal proved to be the difference as the Lions

would go on to a 2-1 win. “I’m very proud of how the guys played all year, they grew a lot this year and I feel really bad for them because they got away a little bit from the gameplan today,” said Cyclones coach Jason Brown. “But they played so well, they were much better today than at the start of the season.” The second half saw Luther put on a solid defensive performance and prevent Central from recording more than a handful of forays into their territory. “The boys battled back and did what they could, but just couldn’t pull it out,” Brown said. Abdullah Aboul Khir scored the lone goal for Central. Humboldt defeated Se Se Wa Hum 3-0 in the bronze medal game. At the 5A boys championship in Swift Current, the reigning Moose Jaw league champion Colts fell 1-0 to Regina Campbell in the bronze medal game. The 5A girls championship in Saskatoon saw Saturday’s games cancelled due to the weather, with the league champion Swift Current Ardens scheduled to face Regina LeBoldus for bronze.

On the Front Porch by Wanda Smith Hard Times

The Gravelbourg convent features intricate Corinthian columns and a shining wood balcony in the chapel, just one of the floors of the 103-year-old-building. (supplied)

Tours of century-old convent in Gravelbourg perfect for spooky evening Larissa Kurz

For the first time in years, an extensive tour through the Gravelbourg convent will show off the basement and the fourth floor of the century-old building, the latter of which has been closed to the public until now. Isabelle Blanchard is spearheading the evening tours, booking groups of curious attendees to wander the mostly empty building from the basement all the way up to the top floor, while giving them a history of the place. “It’s kind of a guided tour of what the building used to be and what it is now. The building is a little bit creepy to a lot of people, especially the fourth floor because it was always closed off,” said Blanchard. “It’s really about how pretty the building is, there’s lots of woodwork and it’s a building you’d never see in present-day [architecture].” The convent was built in 1916 and was home to the Sisters of Jesus and Mary, who ran a boarding school for young girls until 1970, when they sold it to the public school system and it became an elementary school. Despite changing hands since then, the building has

maintained many of the intricate details from its original state, including the towering columns in the chapel and several classrooms still set up with antique desks and chalkboards. The fourth floor was originally used as dorms for the students under the tutelage of the Sisters, and still has the intact music room, featuring eight wooden piano cubicles that helped dampen the sounds so music students weren’t disturbed by each other’s lessons. Blanchard began offering evening tours of the building on Oct. 16, after a request from a member of the community to see the whole building. “I thought it would be something that a lot of people would be interested in, and it’s really a good way to raise money for the building as well,” said Blanchard. The convent is currently a heritage property but is in need of maintenance while the local preservation society, Friends of the Convent, and the municipality work on a future use for the building. For now, between her and a few other volunteer tour guides, Blanchard is offering a chance to see the building every night of the week. She has time slots at 6 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. each evening, with an additional 9 p.m. tour on Friday and Saturday evenings. The tour is entirely family-friendly and welcomes all ages to take part, although it does involve a large number of stairs. Blanchard is planning on continuing the daily tours until Halloween night, on Oct. 31. After that, she’s willing to offer evening tours on a case-by-case basis. Those interested in tours are to call Blanchard at 1 (506) 790-4518 and book a time slot, as she has had plenty of interest and could fill up quickly as Halloween approaches — the old building at night has a creepy feel perfect for the season.

St. Barnabas

No matter how dark it is, there is always the promise of the dawn. We may overlook the promise of the dawn, but it is still there. No matter how low we may feel we can always look up. Today, I want to speak hope and encouragement into your hearts, dear friend. In a day that seems to have trouble on every side, let me encourage you to not lose heart. I have walked through a few devastating situations in my life. One of them was when Hubby and I separated 14 years ago. My world was rocked. His world was rocked. Yet we did not have the tools we needed to make our marriage work at that point. There is a danger to look to ourselves or others to solve the problems around us and although we’ve been given tools to do so, we must also remind ourselves that God has the plan for our good! We definitely have a part to play in bringing good to our lives, but ultimately, we must look to Jesus for the answer. He always has an answer for our difficult situations. The challenge is to not have our own expectations of how He will work things out and to trust Him in the process. The first night of our separation, I was numb. I was empty. I was concerned. I had no answers. My future was so uncertain. Our future was so uncertain. As I surrendered the situation to the Lord, I began to see Him unfold a plan. It was in small baby steps; there were no thunder or lightning bolts with answers from heaven. There were small incidences and the still small voice of God leading us each individually forward. As I mentioned, we do have a part to play. I determined to not give in to fear. I determined that God was my strength, my guide, my comforter and my redeemer. I determined that I would trust Him even when things were spiralling out of control. Baby step by baby step I moved forward each day. One evening, I was listening to Mike Murdock, a man who teaches about wisdom. He made a statement I grabbed a hold of and have never let go, even in the hardest of times: “it’s never as bad as it first appears.” I adopted this wisdom for my life. It held me together. It still holds me together. And it holds us together. Hubby and I reconciled and have been on a path towards God and each other. It is a process of healing and hope. God is for you. He is for me. He is a good God. He desires good for you. There are over 7000 promises in the Word of God available for each of us! Do you know what they are? The tendency is to blame God when things do not go well in our lives. He gets a bad rap for stuff He has never had a part of. We (Adam & Eve first sinned) “all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Adam and Eve gave the earth over to the serpent (Satan) and he became the god (little ‘g’ god) of this world. If bad happens, it is because we live in a fallen world. Stop blaming God for the bad that has been going on in your life and in your world. Turn to Him and trust Him. The good news is that He 60 Athabasca Street East has given306-692-0533 us the keys to a future and a hope. More on this next week... Minister: Rev. Jim Tenford Music Director: Karen Purdy

In Loving

Memory Sam P. Petrescu

Sept. 1, 1923 – Nov. 3, 1999 Time speeds on, twenty years are gone, Since death its gloomy shadow cast Upon our home, where all seemed bright And took from me a shining light. I miss that light, and ever will; His vacant place none can fill, Here I mourn, but not in vain, For in Heaven we will meet again. Forever loved, Esther

In Loving Memory of My Husband Douglas John Buchholz Nov. 4, 1933 – Nov. 5, 2002

No matter how I spend my days No matter what I do No morning or evening falls When I do not think of you. You will live on inside of me forever For that is all my heart knows. “Grief is neither a sign of weakness, nor a lack of faith. It is the price of love.” I pray that you and our dear parents Fred and Elsie Mochnowed and Fred and Mary Buchholz know how much you are loved and how much you are missed. Louise

SMITH It is with deepest sorrow that we announce the sudden passing of James Edward “Jim” Smith (Schmidt), aged 77 years of Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan on Wednesday, October 16th, 2019. On Highway One, while driving a tractor to the Pasqua farm, Jim was tragically killed as the result of a motor vehicle collision. Jim leaves a lasting legacy. Jim was born to Ed and Mary Smith on September 3rd, 1942 in Moose Jaw, SK. He will be remembered as a humble, kind and gentle man who loved his family and farming with his dad and brothers. From a young age, Jim demonstrated determination, perseverance and a sense of brotherhood. As a hard-working young lad, a paper route bought him his first bike. He cherished his St. Louis College peers and his football days. As a young adult, Jim was a car enthusiast; cruising in style and also building the legendary go-cart that was initially created for his younger brother Rob. Jim became an ironworker at a young age and balanced that while also building up the family farm with his brothers. Jack, Jim and Rob worked hard together and were meticulous and methodical about everything related to the farm. The Smith Brothers were a team known for their knowledge, hard work, helping their neighbours and for being talented and inventive problem solvers. Jim also had an adventurous and fun-loving spirit. Stock car racer, Formula 1 enthusiast, Rider fan, and Harley rider, Jim was cool. Go-carts, mini-bikes, skiing, windsurfing, camping, fishing and travelling were some of the adventures he shared with us. The children cherished the Jasper and Sherwood Park visits where Jim would travel with Margie, who was his loving and constant companion for over twenty years. Jim demonstrated endless devotion to his grandchildren and was their biggest fan. Jim was a family man. Supportive, kind, proud, generous and loving, we were all blessed to have been nurtured by him. The efficient, quiet and gentle manner in which he went about his daily routines in an unhurried fashion, is to be aspired to. His advice was always wise and timely. His warm smile, sense of humour and hugs will be forever missed. He was predeceased by his second wife, Marg Beliveau; parents, Ed and Mary Smith; brother, Jack Smith; and grandchild-by-marriage, Jake Harden. Jim will be lovingly remembered and sadly missed by his son, Paul Schmidt (Janet); daughter, Barbara Schmidt (Darvin); step-daughter, Giselle Prosser (Andrew); the mother of his children, Donna McBurney; grandchildren: Jaymes Schmidt, Austin Schmidt, Carter Schmidt, Shelby Prosser, Thomas Prosser and Megan Harden; brother, Rob Smith (Vel); sister, Marion Jones; nieces: Pattie Hackett, Leah and Maddie Ryan; nephew, Michael Jones; and numerous friends and members of the farm and Iron Workers Local 771 communities. The Funeral Mass will be celebrated on Monday, November 4th, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. in St. Joseph’s Roman Catholic Church, 1064 3rd Ave NW, Moose Jaw, SK. Father Tomy Mandapathil will be the presiding celebrant and interment will take place in Rosedale Cemetery. For those so wishing, donations in Jim’s name may be made to the Moose Jaw Health Foundation, 55 Diefenbaker Drive, Moose Jaw, SK S6J 0C2. Arrangements are entrusted to Moose Jaw Funeral Home, 268 Mulberry Lane. Todd Sjoberg, Funeral Director 306-693-4550

HOFER It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of our Nana, Mother, Sister, Wife and friend, Isabel Lorriane (Murray) Hofer on October 24th, 2019 at the age of 68 years. Isabel was born in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan in 1951 and was raised on South Hill where she developed lifelong relationships with her Moose Jaw friends which she cherished her whole life. In 1966 her family moved to Brooks, AB which she would call home for the next 53 years. It was here that Isabel met John, the love of her life and they were married on October 3rd, 1970. They just recently celebrated their 49th Wedding Anniversary. Isabel loved visiting and entertaining with friends and family with the Hofer household the central hub for many family and friend gatherings. In her younger years she loved nothing more than to listen to music, sing and dance. Her and John would frequent Blood Indian to camp and fish on the weekends as long as John would worm her hook and remove all the fish she would catch. She was an active member of Ben’s Bowling and passed this activity onto her children. Isabel loved traveling and the time spent with John the most. With summer camping trips to the mountains when the boys were young; the wild and adventurous trips to the Okanogan; long haul trucking with John when the kids got older; and in retirement, pointing the motorhome south and wintering in Arizona and Mexico with close friends and family. Isabel could always be found reading a book, was an avid card player, and loved her flowers and backyard which John would maintain and take orders for. Isabel cherished the arrival of her grandchild and time with all her family members. Isabel suffered from Rheumatoid Arthritis for most of adult life and consciously choose to be grateful and happy despite the countless pain and suffering she endured. Isabel was loyal to a fault and taught her family to be patient, to love unconditionally and how to find joy and peace even in the darkest of moments. The family has been so moved and appreciative of the love, care and support from Isabel’s close friends, her Moose Jaw connection, extended family and the medical services provided by Dr. Martin (rheumatologist), Dr. Thompson (family doctor), and the staff at Peter Lougheed Centre and the Brooks Health Centre. Isabel is survived by her loving husband John and their children Jaret and his spouse Kami (Cobey, Cali, Ella and Parker), Jason and his wife Candace (Brayden), Joe (Chase). Her step sisters Cathy and Ginny, Judy, Tracy, Natalie, Raye, and Toni, step brother Laird, and her nieces Christy, Vicki, Sonya and families. She was predeceased by her mother Dorthy and step-father Jake Enns, her step-mother Betty Enns, brother Walter Murray, sister-in-law Marlene Neal and step brothers Chris Enns and Barry McMillan. A Memorial Service will be held at Cassils Community Centre, Cassils, AB on Sunday November 10th, 2019 at 2:30 PM with a Celebration of Life to follow in Hofer style with food, drinks, music, stories and laughter. In memory of Isabel, if friends desire, memorial tributes may be made to Brooks and District Health Foundation, Bag 300, Brooks, Alberta T1R 1B3. Cremation is entrusted to Smith Funeral Home Ltd. and Crematorium, Brooks. Funeral arrangements entrusted to: SMITH FUNERAL HOME LTD. AND CREMATORIUM BROOKS, ALBERTA.
