Members of the Moose Jaw Community Players are hard at work rehearsing for Paper Wheat, which features a handful of musical numbers but is not a musical in itself.

Community Players telling the story of Saskatchewan in upcoming dinner theatre Larissa Kurz

The Moose Jaw Community Players are embarking on a journey through Saskatchewan history in their fall dinner theatre production, and director Debbie Burgher promises the show will feel very personal to the audience. The play, Paper Wheat, was written in 1976 by the 25th Street House Theatre and is considered the most successful stage show in Saskatchewan history. Built on a series of vignettes, Paper Wheat is essentially a documentary — as original company members travelled to a number of small communities to collect real perspectives of the boom of the prairies. “It really is the story of how Saskatchewan has become what it is, who we are as a people and the history that we have,” said Burgher. The play details the original immigrant settlers who came to Saskatchewan, detailing their lives through until the late 70s, including the creation of the Co-op movement and the formation of the wheat pools. In fact, the overarching theme of the play is co-operation, said Burgher, especially with the Moose Jaw Co-op acting as a major sponsor. The story begins with the struggle of those new to Canada and how they learned to work with each other and continues on explaining where the neighbourly mentality of the prairies truly

originated. “It talks about how we are a community, and how we work together and pull together,” said Burgher. “This is going to be a really cool experience actually because it has an immigrant kind of feel to it, where people are coming to Canada.” The set will feature a classic prairie landscape as a background, and a set of five-foot-tall wheat sheaves framing the stage. There’s even a surprise encore that is sure to embody the modern Saskatchewan spirit. The Moose Jaw Community Players always plan their fall show as a dinner theatre. This year, the meal will include another interesting aspect to the origin-story theme of the play — each item on the buffet will have a label, telling where that food is from and when it came to Canada. The group has also partnered with the Moose Jaw Multicultural Council, providing tickets to Canadian newcomers for the show. The Moose Jaw Community Players won seven awards at the provincial TheatreFest from Theatre Saskatchewan with their spring production, The Last 5 Years, and Burgher hopes that Paper Wheat will debut in Moose Jaw with the same enthusiasm. Paper Wheat will take the stage on Nov. 22 & 23, at the Cosmo Senior Centre. Tickets are $45 for the buffet supper and show and are available for purchase at Prairie Bee Meadery on Main Street.

Co-op donates $25,000 toward Peacock Collegiate’s auditorium renewal project Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

The Moose Jaw Co-op Association has given a financial shot in the arm to A.E. Peacock Collegiate’s Centennial auditorium renewal project by providing a donation of $25,000. Members of the Co-op executive attended a pep rally at the school on Oct. 25, where they revealed the amount to the students on a large presentation cheque. The money will go toward upgrading the seats in the balcony, which means that part of the auditorium will be renamed the Moose Jaw Co-op balcony. “We’re ecstatic,� said principal Dustin Swanson, who thanked the Moose Jaw Co-op for its support. “It’s a critical project for our school, our division and our community.� Phase 1 of the project is nearly complete and should be done by Christmas, he continued. This phase focused on rejuvenating the auditorium seating, flooring and lighting, and painting the walls. The next part of the project is creating a plan to tackle Phase 2, Swanson added. This would deal with the

stage itself, including the lighting, rigging and curtains. Fundraising efforts will focus on meeting the

targets of the next phase. Co-op gave the donation after looking at the renewal project and realizing that Moose Jaw and area communities use the auditorium regularly, along with students who enjoy the space and who celebrate the arts and music in it, explained Co-op general manager Geoff Anderson. “We felt that certainly spoke to our Co-operative values, by putting people first and being community-minded,� he said, “and so we felt we needed to help. “We’re very excited to be able to give a donation like this for this renovation. From what I’ve seen so far, this is going to be fantastic for the students today, and certainly into the future.� Funding is still required to complete the project “and (to) do a bang-up job of it,� added Michaela Turner, Co-op’s manager of marketing and communications. She encouraged other businesses to donate as well by calling Swanson at 306-693-4626. Or, supporters can go online to newseats.ca to donate there.

More people voted in this constituency this federal election than in 2015 Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

More people in the Moose Jaw — Lake Centre — Lanigan constituency voted in this year’s federal election than in 2015, with the incumbent candidate also seeing an increase in votes received. Data from Elections Canada shows there were 45,275 ballots cast in this riding during the 43rd federal election on Oct. 21. There were 291 rejected ballots, so the total number of valid votes cast was 44,984. There were 10,264 ballots cast in the advanced polls. Incumbent Conservative candidate Tom Lukiwski received 31,993 votes — an increase from 23,273 votes in 2015 — while NDP candidate Talon Regent received 7,660 votes, Cecilia Melanson received 2,517 votes, People’s Party of Canada candidate Chey Craik received 1,613 votes and Green Party candidate Gillian Walker received 1,201 votes. In comparison, there were 42,107 ballots cast in 2015. There were 142 rejected ballot papers, so 41,965 valid votes were cast.

Acting returning officer Brian Elwin Harrison was thrilled to see more votes cast this election. “I am in the voting business. Any time you can have a higher voter turnout, the better it is,� he said, noting it was encouraging to see more people this year compared to 2015 since “apathy is the enemy of democracy.� With a laugh, Harrison noted he would not attempt to answer why more people cast their ballots in this election. He joked that he would let the political pundits discuss that issue since he and his team were more focused on ensuring Election Day ran well. Election Day was such a whirlwind that Harrison encouraged his team — in the main office in Moose Jaw and throughout the constituency — to simply enjoy it. There were 708 people hired to work at the different locations, with some employees working 14 to 16 hours on the day itself. “They were well-trained. It was definitely a valid election and the mistakes

Not just stars in my eyes.... if enrolled in post-secondary education at university, college or trade-school receive a

we found two days later were small adding mistakes after a 14-hour day ‌ ,â€? he said. While the polls in Saskatchewan opened at 7:30 a.m., the day started earlier for all the employees, since each site had to report in by 6:15 a.m. There were 27 additional employees on standby in case poll station employee was unable to fulfill his or her duties, explained Harrison. These 27 people were stationed throughout the constituency in different communities and ready to travel to smaller centres if necessary; only one person had to be called. “We had very resilient Saskatchewanians,â€? chuckled Harrison. About 90 reports came into the main office in Moose Jaw after the polls closed. The central poll supervisors watched over the vote counting, with those votes then phoned in and entered into the computer system. This took about 90 minutes to two hours. Most employees at ballot stations were

bringing in their boxes to the main office when the final votes were being entered. The staff at the main office were still working on finishing up their final duties a week after the election. This included loading up ballot boxes and other supplies and shipping them back to Ottawa. Harrison compared operating an elections office as being similar to running a business for eight weeks and then shutting it down quickly. It might have been long days leading up to — and on — Election Day, but it was rewarding, said Harrison. He could see the fatigue in employees’ eyes when they returned to the office around 9:30 p.m. and 10:30 p.m., but appreciated their willingness to give back to democracy. “It reminds me of harvest in that sense. You do the job until the job is done,â€? he added. “Not one complaint ‌ It was a real good feeling in the heart.â€?

Responding to the Speech from the Throne MLA’s Column

Warren Michelson

Moose Jaw North Warren Michelson, MLA

I was honoured to present a reply to the Speech from the Throne last week on behalf of the constituents of Moose Jaw North. This year’s Throne Speech looked ahead with optimism to a new decade of growth in our province. I certainly share that optimism recognizing the abundant natural resources and ingenuity of our citizens. I’m confident that with appropriate policies in place to support growth; the resourcefulness of the people of Saskatchewan will make that growth happen. It has been such a privilege to be part of a record era of growth in Saskatchewan. The new decade of growth will rest on the foundation of the incredible progress that has happened over the past decade. This was my last reply to the Speech from the Throne as the MLA for Moose Jaw North, which bought some reflections on the advancement of our province since I was elected in 2007. At that time, our population in Saskatchewan was barely one million. We have since experienced record-setting population growth that now exceeds 1,170,000 residents. In 2007 Debbie and I had two grandchildren, a number which has grown to eight over the last decade. Population growth within my own family has followed the Saskatchewan trend. The official opening of the Regina Bypass last week was an exciting event where MLAs left the Legislature to celebrate this very significant milestone. The Regina Bypass is the largest transportation infrastructure project in the province’s history and will help to keep Saskatchewan growing. Opened on time and on budget, the Bypass

will boost our provincial economy through the efficient movement of goods, by reducing traffic congestion and by improving safety. There are so many growth opportunities here in this province. Imagine a Saskatchewan where much of the primary agricultural production is processed here. Measures to increase agricultural value-added exports to $10 billion by 2030 will be part of the discussion during the fall legislative session. In my reply to the Throne Speech, I spoke about moving forward with our Prairie Resilience Climate Change Strategy. We will discuss harnessing the power of our abundance; abundant wind, abundant sunshine, and abundant uranium. The Legislature routine will pause on November 6th to pay tribute to all the men and women who gave their lives serving Canada and to those who continue to serve our country today. 2019 marks the 75th anniversary of D-Day and the Battle of Normandy. We are reminded of the determination and courage of the men landing at Juno Beach, in the face great danger. Here in Moose Jaw the Remembrance Day Service is especially significant because of the presence of 15 Wing and the Saskatchewan Dragoons. All those who come to our Service in uniform are willing to serve or have already served their country. Many faced dangerous situations. We appreciate their commitment and also owe a debt of gratitude to their loved ones who supported them. Thank you to all in Moose Jaw who have served or are serving in the Armed Forces or Protective Services. Thank you to Royal Canadian Legion Branch 59 who have been organizing our Remembrance Day Service for the past 60 years. I hope all in Moose Jaw will do our part by filling Mosaic Place on November 11th to honor those who serve, those who have served, and pay tribute to those who have given their lives for peace and freedom. It is important we never forget.

Cannabis production comes at expense of fresh veggies By Ron Walter - For Agri-Mart Express Concern has been AGRIMART expressed that cannabis producEXPRESS tion is taking over land and greenhouse operations that produce vegetables in B.C. Some farmers and municipal leaders object to cannabis operations on land set aside in the provincially-mandated agricultural land reserve. The Corporation of Delta had 35 applications from cannabis producers asking for permission to run cannabis facilities on the land reserve. The concerned residents state that substituting cannabis production for vegetables will erode Canada’s capacity for food production and make the country more dependent on the U.S. and Mexico for fresh vegetable production. The seaside Delta area produces half of B.C. green beans

and potatoes. The profits in vegetables are a fraction of cannabis where returns run 15 times those from veggie production. One of the major Canadian cannabis firms Canopy Growth, converted a 275,000 square metre (2.9 million square foot) greenhouse from bell pepper production to cannabis. In another greenhouse conversion a 1.1 million square foot greenhouse was converted to medical cannabis from vegetables. Across Canada the cannabis industry has converted greenhouses from vegetables to cannabis. More than half of Canada’s greenhouse space is located in the Essex-Windsor area on Ontario. Some of those greenhouses have been prime locations for cannabis operators. Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@sasktel.net

This letter is to address another of the mayor’s temper tirades, this one taking place during the open forum city council meeting of October 28th, 2019. With a seemingly haughty and superior manner, he took it upon himself again to berate the same councillor as he has previously done in other public council Joan Ritchie meetings. EDITOR The public perception is the evident disdain he has for this specific councillor, as witnessed in public council. They are all peers or equals in their job of running the city, and I believe no one has the right to use their position (mayor) as a beating post to reprimand another (councillor). In a discussion over a matter, the mayor chooses to reprimand Councillor Brian Swanson for missing so many council meetings. In Swanson’s admitted 24 years as councillor, he said he has only missed three council meetings and the recent planning session because he was on vacation, but there have been some others that he has walked out of because, as he stated, “his gorge begins to rise and he has to make a decision…” Kudos to him. Mr. Tolmie has been the mayor for only three years and I am sure he has taken some holidays, too, so wondering how many days he has missed council or planning sessions in the last three years? The mayor’s uncontrolled bursts of temper are the difference between someone that has a level of respect for himself and others and decides to control his emotions and walks out of a meeting, rather than being a ‘freight train out of control’ for all to witness. Witnessing this was not a pretty sight and rather embarrassing for the general public. In fact, another councillor holding the gavel abruptly put his tirade to rest by saying ‘that was enough.’ I have a hypothesis: I think that city council is having more in-camera meetings out of public scrutiny because they are afraid of things like this and the public witnessing more uncontrolled outbursts. I am just making a point. “Pride goes before destruction, And a haughty spirit before a fall.” Proverbs 16:18 I think with the same level of passion that he has displayed in publically berating Councillor Swanson, it would be nice to see the mayor humble himself and personally apologize to Councillor Swanson in the next public council meeting.

Farmer’s Market taking things inside for the winter season

Larissa Kurz The final outdoor Homegrown Farmer’s Market wrapped up on Oct. 12, but the market committee has one last surprise up their sleeve for market-goers. For the winter season, vendors from the summer markets will move their wares indoors to the Timothy Eaton Centre for the Winter Market — four more dates leading up to the Christmas season to satiate the need for local, handmade goods. All the usual vendors will continue to bring their goods to the Winter Markets, giving the community another chance to shop local for things like honey, bath products, baking, jewellery, and more. “We’re hoping to do some stuff for the holidays, so people can expect something a bit more special at those markets,” said market manager Allison Taylor. “We’re hoping to have some music as well, actually playing throughout the markets, so that will be a quite nice atmosphere.” This will be the second year the Farmer’s Market has planned a series of indoor winter markets, as they had a great reception last year. Because of the dates, the Winter Markets offer a great chance to do some local holiday shopping. “It’s really great because people can still shop local for the holidays and have a better footprint than buying things from out of town while still supporting our local economy and our local people,” said Taylor. The Winter Markets will take place on Sunday mornings, on Nov. 3 and 17 and Dec. 8 and 15, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. each day.

Conspiracy theory on sinking of Titanic outlined by local author By Ron Walter - For Moose Jaw Express

By day Tim Knittig sells drapery products from Simcoe Draperies but his sideline hobby led him to publish a chap book on the sinking of the Titanic. His chap book revives an old conspiracy theory that claims the unsinkable ship sinking was an insurance fraud. Using timelines, comparative photos and information about the two sister ships — Titanic and Olympic – built by White Star Lines, Knittig lays out how the conspiracy worked. “I build custom models,” Knittig explained his initial interest in the Titanic. “With building my models, I investigate really, really deep for accuracy, stuff like that. When I was studying, I found a lot of different conflicting evidence and information between the two different ships, the Olympic and the Titanic.” Both were sister ships built by White Star, owned by New York banker J.P. Morgan. “The Olympic had been in three different big accidents. The last one was severe. It broke its back and bent the drive shaft.” The ship’s drive shaft can’t be changed once installed. “The Olympic was totalled off. Insurance wouldn’t pay because the last accident was the White Star line’s fault. “What they did they decided even with government level on this conspiracy. They actually switched the names, sent the Olympic out as the Titanic, patched up enough to get it out to collect insurance. The insurance payout was $10 million U.S. “It was well-planned. Everybody was supposed to be rescued. Things went bad. They were off course ” when the iceberg was hit. In the April 14, 1912 sinking, 1,527 of the 2,223 passengers died in icy waters. “I found a lot of references with information, even the

legal proceedings after the accident,” said Knittig. “Basically, the judge was paid off. “A lot of people don’t want to know the real story. They put blinders on.” The timeline runs from building the two ships to the Olympic’s accidents to where the switch transition started taking place down to the company not filling the voyage to capacity. “All the workers on the job were threatened, even death threats but a lot of them were talking.” His book – Titanic the Ship That Never Sank – was on sale at the Cosmo Seniors’ fall craft show.

Upgrades at Regina airport position it for future growth, says CEO Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Major renovations to the Regina International Airport’s post-security passenger lounge are part of its long-term vision to upgrade almost every area of the complex, the company says. The airport surveyed its customers last year and asked them what changes they might like to see at the main terminal, explained CEO/president James Bogusz. One idea was for the addition of more services such as food outlets in the passenger lounge. “When you had your early morning flight, (you) couldn’t get bacon and eggs. You could get a little sandwich and a coffee and a doughnut from (Tim Hortons), but there was nothing of significance post-security,” he said. “And for many of you, if you buy a coffee before security, you can’t walk it through the line. You’ve got to wait until after.” The airport realigned some walls so more services were available, including the Skyway Restaurant, a full-service Tim Hortons and the Relay gift store, Bogusz said on Oct. 29 at the Heritage Inn during a luncheon hosted by the Moose Jaw and District Chamber of Commerce. Established as a non-profit company in 1999, the Regina International Airport (YQR) is the 15th busiest airport in Canada and serves 1.23 million passengers annually. The change to the post-security area has had a big effect on customers, particularly for people travelling in the morning, Bogusz continued. Travellers now have more time in a low-stress environment to eat and browse the store. “We’re very proud that those who are travelling through our airport will have much more choice post-security, and we’re looking to grow and build up the various offerings we have, both before the line and after,” he said. Economic effect YQR serves southern Saskatchewan and the more than 500,000 residents in the area, Bogusz said. The airport has annual revenues of $28.9 million, is a major economic driver and employer in Regina, and contributes more than $800 million to the local economy. The airport has three main revenue sources: an airport improvement fee of $20 that is attached to tickets, aviation revenue and non-aviation revenue. The goal is to generate more non-aviation revenue so the company can charge airlines less. Ground transportation

The airport eliminated a $600 annual fee that it charged to taxis and Uberstyle vehicles, and instead, now charges a pay-per-trip fee based on the number of seats per vehicle. Furthermore, longterm parking rates were cut in half; oneweek parking is now $89 compared to $105, while two-week parking is $138 compared to $210. Passenger trends Since 2008, the number of passengers who have used the Regina International Airport has increased. There were slightly more than one million passengers in 2008, while there were 1.26 million travellers in 2013. However, the airport experienced a decline in growth of four per cent this past year. “The sky is not falling. It’s a blip. Many Canadian airports are in the same position,” Bogusz said. “But the story of our airport is one of growth, and long-term, we, of course, expect to see additional passengers continue using the facility.” U.S. air service YQR is well served with airlines travelling to Mexico, but what it lacks are flights from Regina to destinations in the United States, Bogusz said. United and Delta airlines pulled out several years ago due to the low Canadian dollar. Attempts are being made to attract American Airlines so it can fly from Regina to Denver, Colo. A roundtrip flight in a 50-seat plane would generate nearly $12 million a year for YQR. “We will not rest until this is resolved,” he added. Meanwhile, Air Canada is adding a third flight, Regina -Vancouver, which is Canada’s second busiest airport. Bogusz be-

lieves this route will be successful. YQR master plan The goal is to increase passenger growth by 2.8 per cent during the next 20 years, said Bogusz. The airport has plans to ensure the money it generates is well spent. This includes possibly charging less for its airport improvement fee. Furthermore, the main terminal building will change to where passengers will go

through security on the main floor instead of the second floor. The airfield will also see renovations. With more than 2,370.3 metres (7,901 feet) worth of runways, major repairs are regularly needed since the airport authority wants passengers to feel safe travelling. Environment YQR is the first airport in Saskatchewan to receive an airport carbon accreditation, a designation that recognizes airports that work to reduce their carbon emissions. As the board considers future capital projects on top of its financial return, said Bogusz; it can look at the reduction of greenhouse gases. “It’s a nice thing to do,” he added.

The first Imagine Local Craft Sale in April was such a success, the MJFFC decided to plan another one. (supplied)

Imagine Local handmade sale back to begin holiday shopping season Larissa Kurz

Moose Jaw Families for Change saw so much success with their first Imagine Local Craft Sale earlier this year, they’ve brought the handmade sale back just in time for some holiday shopping. On Nov. 9, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., local artisans, crafters, and artists will fill not only the Kinsmen Inclusion Centre but also the newly opened Kinsmen Cafe just down the block for Imagine Local Craft Sale: Holiday Edition. “We had such a great response with [the sale in April] that we decided to expand it to our second location, the Kinsmen Cafe which we’ll be opening next month,” said Katie Statler, community coordinator for the MJFFC. Each maker is from the Moose Jaw area, as the sale hopes to encourage the community to shop local. The sale will feature a huge range of items, including homemade candles, artwork, hand-knitted items, and even dog treats. “I think we have something for everyone, at both locations. There’s a unique list of vendors,” said Statler. “We wanted to try and showcase the local vendors closer to the holiday season, so that folks could come out and get a headstart on their holiday shopping.”

The sale has an admission fee of $5 at the door, which grants access to both locations for the day. All proceeds collected from admission will be put towards the MJFFC’s newest program, Imagine Employment, which was launched about a month ago. The program is offering employment opportunities for folks of varying abilities through the Kinsmen Inclusion Centre and a partnership with the Moose Jaw Housing Authority and Victoria Towers. “We have started to employ some of the people we support through the Kinsmen Inclusion Centre to cook meals [for Victoria Towers], and the idea will be for them to be employed at the Kinsmen Cafe too, serving coffee or working the till or helping prep food, things like that,” said Statler. Imagine Local will be set up at the Kinsmen Inclusion Centre, at 335 4th Ave SW, as well as at the Kinsmen Cafe at 431 4th Ave SW. Both buildings are wheelchair and mobility aid accessible. For more details about the vendors attending, check the event’s Facebook page.

TRADING THOUGHTS

Environment Canada poking fun at Old Farmer’s Almanac, denies almanac accuracy rate The Old Farmer’s Almanac has come in for some criticism by representatives of the more scientifically-oriented Environment Canada. Senior climatologist David Phillips, the public relations face and voice of Environment Canada, poked fun at the non-scientific methods used the The Old Farmer’s Alby Ron Walter by manac in preparing the longrange forecast. “It blows it out of the water in terms of any credibility,” he told, CBC earlier this fall. “Talk about moon phases and sunspots? I mean, moon phases? I always say to people that Halifax has the same moon phases as Vancouver, but my God, the weather can be totally different.” According to Phillips climatologists examine a slew of data from water temperatures in oceans around the world, ice conditions and land conditions, as well as the current season. “They (the almanac) came out with their forecast now, but

they had to prepare it probably eight months ago because of publication dates,” Phillips said. “So when you think about the fact that we can’t even get it right tomorrow, and then when you’re trying to get it right a year and a half in advance, it just really is the joke it is. I mean, they could be right by the law of averages, but there’s just no science into it.” Funny thing this weather forecasting. Environment Canada has about 70 per cent accuracy in its extended seven-day forecasts. According to its website a random guess would be accurate 30 per cent of the time. Then 2020 edition of the Old Farmer’s Almanac claims regional forecasts had 71.4 per cent accuracy in 2019. Where the .4 per cent came from or why it was even used instead of rounding down is surprising and confusing. So just how did the Almanac’s non-scientific methods do last year? The prediction of above normal snowfall and winter temperature in Western Canada was only partly correct. The cool and dry April-May forecast was right on as were rain predictions for June. The hot summer was partly true and the double the normal precipitation for September was accurate although below normal October rain was out by a lot.

Whistle Stop Christmas Craft Show The annual Whistle Stop Christmas Craft Show at the Moose Jaw Exhibition Convention Centre was a bustling market for two days as buyers looked over and bought an assortment of items from fabrics and jewelry to food and care items. Ron Walter photos

For the year from November 2019 to the end of October 2020, the Old Farmer’s Almanac predicts slightly warmer temperatures than normal with above normal precipitations. November is supposed to be three degrees above normal with one-third less rain and snow than usual. December should be six degrees above average with 40 per cent more precipitation. A colder January and February with almost double the usual precipitation is an almanac prediction. March and April will be cooler with almost twice as much rain and snow. Seeding should be better with a slightly warmer May and average rainfall. June will be a bit above average temperature and average precipitation while July should be slightly warmer with half as much rain. August should be a little cooler with average rain. A warm September and October with average precipitation will help the harvest.

Alberta takes 15 per cent out of ag budget over four years By Ron Walter - For Agri-Mart Express Agriculture takes a hit in the new EXPRESS Alberta deficit-cutting budget. The Alberta budget will slice $145 million from last year’s $967 million budget for agriculture over four years. The 2019-20 budget will be $879 million — a one-year reduction of nine per cent. By 2022-23 the budget will be down to $822 million with much of the cuts coming from a re-arranging of priorities and a freeze on filling vacant positions. The reduction includes government-funded research and production and partnering associations and with universities. Research will be transitioned to the joint federal-provincial Canadian Agricultural Program (CAP) and cuts will shift research to farm groups. Crop insurance and CAP income stability programs will be unaffected.

Dance-a-Thon embodies the spirit of kids helping kids Larissa Kurz

The studio at Dance Images by BJ was thriving with activity on Oct. 27, with dancers coming and going throughout the day to take part in the annual Kids Helping Kids Dance-a-Thon. Each group of dancers brought with them donations collected throughout the month, to put towards the studio’s growing total donation towards Creative Kids. Students from ages 3 all way up to 18 took part in the Dance-a-Thon, which featured not only dancing but also games, snacks, and colouring. The day is organized and facilitated by the older students at the studio, an experience grade-12 student Karina Daintree finds to be as fulfilling as the knowledge that her efforts are supporting a charitable cause.

The whole day was run by the older students at Dance Images.

“We really are like a family here, so just anytime that I get to spend with them is great and getting to pass on that to the younger kids [is always nice];” said Daintree. “Its good leadership practice and skills that we get to learn, and being part of something that you’re so passionate about is always really nice.” In supporting Creative Kids, Dance Images dancers are supporting programs that help kids across the province participate in the arts. For Daintree, arts programs — like dance — are a valuable place to learn universal qualities like hard work, determination, and even time management. “I can’t think of a better gift to give someone else than dance, because I know how important it’s been to me,” said Daintree. “How much I’ve been able to learn. . . things that have helped me in other aspects of my life, I just feel that you can learn that from any type of art, so just being able to pass that on to other people is really, really special.” The fundraiser takes place each fall, and assistant director Shauna Bzdel is always pleased to see both her dancers and their community step up to help make it a success. “Our community always rallies together. We have got amazing dance families here

One of the morning groups of Dance Images students, showcasing a collection of the Dance-a-Thon’s community sponsors. at the studio that use their resources within the community and so the support has been great,” said Bzdel. By the end of the day, Dance Images had collected $8,482 to donate towards Creative Kids. “The best part is that we get to spend the day here at the studio dancing, doing what we love to do, and at the end of the day, we get to really make a big impact into many lives of younger children,” said Bzdel. “Thank you to everybody for coming out and supporting us in such a great cause.”

Peals of laughter filled the studio during all of the dance games this younger group played. 19112AX0 19112AX1 19112AX2

School artifacts bring back memories for former students, teachers Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Former King Edward School student April Warner-Slater was excited to find her name in a yearbook that was published before the school closed and that now resides in the A.E. Peacock Collegiate archives room. Warner-Slater was in Grade 7 when the school closed in 1977. The book was a final collection of stories students wrote about their time at the school, along with other information such as the names of intramural sports teams; BTO, Nazareth, and KISS, anyone? Warner-Slater’s contribution was about how much she enjoyed her teachers. She thought it was interesting to come across her words, which brought back memories of her time at the former elementary school. “I was not happy I had to go to Empire (School) for Grade 8 before going to high school,” she chuckled on Oct. 24, while visiting the archives room with her husband Ron, who was in Grade 8 at King Edward in 1977. The archives room’s open house was part of the school’s Education Week celebrations. The room is open when the school is open. To visit, call 306-6934626 and speak with principal Dustin Swanson.

chives room, the room focuses on the schools that made up the Moose Jaw School Division, which existed from 1884 — at the time, the oldest in the province — until 2005. Many of the objects are from schools that closed over the decades and from some that still stand today. Prairie South School Division sprang into existence in 2006 after surrounding school divisions amalgamated with Moose Jaw. Walking through the room brought back memories for retired teacher Leslie Fielding, who noted she had similar items in her classrooms over the years. She began teaching in 1983 and worked at King George, Ross School and Palliser Heights until retiring in 2016. She taught French immersion for more than half of her career. “I just noticed a book I used to teach with, so that’s pretty cool,” she said. Fielding then picked up another book, “Stories of Old and New,” used to train students to read. The book was written in 1965 and helped her learn to read as a student. Bill Shiers attended three elementary schools as a child — Prince Arthur, King Edward and Empire — before going to Peacock for high school. He lives in Florida now, but saw a Facebook notice about the archives’ open house and thought he would visit. “I never would have thought this place existed,” he added. “I never knew they

had all this stuff … A lot of stuff brings back memories.” King Edward School was still standing when Shiers and his family moved to South Hill, he said, so it was a shame the school was torn down. He pointed out that in every picture taken looking toward that neighbourhood, the school “stands out like a sore thumb.”

Shier’s sister Crystal Froese was excited to see a desk that she would have sat in while attending Peacock and from which she graduated in 1985. She slipped into the seat and found it just as comfortable as ever. “It’s (the room) is great, especially to see the different eras and the typewriters and equipment,” said Froese. “The technology has changed so much.” Most of Froese’s family attended Peacock over the decades, she said. She began attending the school before it received major renovations; once the new gym was built, it seemed everyone wanted to attend. She recalls being taught Shakespeare by an English teacher who let the students learn outside if the weather was nice. Sometimes class was held at Crescent Park, while other times students would simply open the classroom windows and go sit on the adjacent roof. “Everyone (also) knows Mr. J — Lyle Johnson,” Froese added. “He’s famous. If there was a teacher of the century, it would be Mr. J. He was one of those fair, easy-going teachers who brought out the best in kids. All the students loved him and still do.”

MJPS traffic officer talks impaired driving and its consequences Larissa Kurz

Cst. Jeremey Anderson has been with the Moose Jaw Police Service for over a decade and spoke to the Community Police Academy group as an expert on policing impaired driving violations. According to Anderson, alcohol remains the factor behind the majority of impaired driving causes since the legalization of marijuana in 2018, although there have been drug instances behind the wheel as well. Canada has some of the most lenient impaired driving laws when compared to other nations in the world, and Saskatchewan is one of the leading provinces in impaired driving infractions — a title the province has held for a number of years, despite increased consequences. Impaired driving is a large concern, as collisions involving drugs or alcohol continue to be the leading criminal cause of death in Canada. “SGI has doubled the fines, doubled the consequences, and people are still doing it,” said Anderson. “It’s one of those things, like rolling through a stop sign. It seems like, ‘oh, it’s not a big deal,’ until it is.” Law enforcement has to rely largely on instinct when attempting to determine if a driver is intoxicated, Anderson explained. Beginning with smell and the individual’s behaviour, officers must be able to identify the signs of intoxication in order to further investigate. There are two field tests an officer can use to prove a driver is intoxicated. The first is the approved screening device (ASD) — more commonly recognized as a field breathalyzer — and the second is the standardized field sobriety test (SFST): tracking the iris of the eye with a pen, standing on one leg, and walking in a straight line. Once an officer has administered one of

For Anderson, he’s heard all of the tricks to supposedly get alcohol out of the system quicker, or how many drinks is the limit before you can drive, and he says none of them will work. No matter what, alcohol leaves the bloodstream at about 10 to 15 milligrams/per cent each hour. “Alcohol affects everyone differently, but it leaves everyone the same way,” said Anderson. There could be a change in the mindset around drunk driving looming on the horizon, especially given how often fatalities have been the result of impaired driving. “I am finding a lot less young people who are driving impaired, and I think a big reason for that is we’ve lost a lot of young people in the last ten years that have been killed because of impaired driving but it’s still out there,” said Anderson. For Anderson, he wants to see our province’s impaired driving numbers greatly decrease, which he thinks will happen with education and awareness, and a change in mentality — that even one drink is too many to think about getting behind the wheel. Details for this article were collected as part of the Moose Jaw Express’s attendance at the Community Police Academy.

Jeremy Anderson (L) brought out the drunk goggles and administered a field test on Hana Giddings, who was unable to walk the straight line at a simulated 0.08 BAC. these tests, they cannot administer the years, with a first offence of driving over other — which means they have to be the BAC of 0.08 resulting in a one-year livery sure what to do in a situation. cense suspension, vehicle impoundment, “Everything in impaired driving [tests] is and at minimum a $1,000 fine. set up to benefit the defendant,” said An- Every time a driver blows a warning on a derson. “So for example, [the ASD] is set field breathalyzer — that is, a BAC conup to fail at 100 per cent, but the limit is tent of about 0.04 — they are required by only 80 per cent.” SGI to take the DWI course again and can Officers must also make informed de- face a 24-hour license suspension and vecisions when laying Impaired Care and hicle impoundment. Control charges, especially in the wintertime. An impaired individual sitting in the passenger seat of their vehicle, with the keys on, could be at risk of arrest if an officer thinks there’s a chance that vehicle could move in the future. Larissa Kurz Most Saskatchewan drivers likely know someone who has been handed a drunk The members of the Criminal Indriving charge, and has had to go through vestigation Services department SGI’s Driving Without Impairment course in the Moose Jaw Police Service may not wear the uniform that as a result. The consequences of impaired driving regular patrol officers sport, but have only gotten harsher in the last few they work on some of the most sensitive cases in the city. Cst. Sheldon MacNaughton is one of the five plainclothes officers who currently make up the CIS, and he shared the role that he plays in the investigative process. While patrol officers respond to calls as they come in, CIS officers work on an assigned caseload, often for long periods of time. Cst. Sheldon MacNaughton shared some of his “There’s always usually enough experiences during the last five years he’s been evidence to lay a charge or arrest with the Criminal Investigation Services at the somebody, but for CIS, it’s a quesMJPS. tion of can we gather enough evidence to get them to a point where a Crown prosecutor will actually run with a case because he believes he can get [a conviction],” said MacNaughton. When cases hit his desk, said MacNaughton, they are about a third of the way complete in terms of a guaranteed conviction. From there, it’s his job to collect the remainder of the evidence that will turn an arrest into a conviction — a process that he finds to be a huge responsibility. “At the end of the day, in Canada, if we’re going to deprive someone of their freedom, then there should be a process to do that, and so part of that starts with criminal investigations,” said MacNaughton. MacNaughton’s work puts him in all kinds of situations, from interviewing children to setting up stings to catch suspects. He often works in close tandem with the Regina Police Service, as suspects often cross over into their jurisdiction. CIS handles a number of case types, mostly those that require further investigation than patrol officers can offer. This includes situations like child abuse reports, drug and weapons investigations, serious assaults including those of a sexual nature, fraud, robbery, and homicide. Also under their jurisdiction is running prostitution busts, continuing surveillance for a case, executing search warrants and taking warned statements, and handling informants. MacNaughton is trained in interview techniques, as a large portion of his job involves conducting interviews to help build a case. He specifically has training for child abuse investigations, which means he works closely with Social Services and Child and Family Services. He is also the coordinator for the Crime Stoppers campaign in Moose Jaw. With the CIS unit, MacNaughton has worked a number of tough cases, including serious offences like extortion, sexual assault, and even homicide. For him, the extensive legwork that he and other CIS officers do is always worth the effort, even if it uncovers that there isn’t any immediate threat. “At the end of the day, I want to build a case. I deal in facts,” said MacNaughton. “Did this happen or not happen, that’s really what I want to get to.” Details for this article were collected as part of the Moose Jaw Express’s attendance at the Community Police Academy.

Library lecture talks how to save money responsibly Larissa Kurz

As part of the ongoing financial literacy series at the Moose Jaw Public Library, chartered professional accountant Juanita Pandya presented some tips to follow when choosing to start saving money. Pulling some facts from a recent survey, Pandya began by pointing out that Canadians as a whole have a very high debt to income ratio, and the majority of those surveyed save less than ten per cent of their annual income — generally not quite enough to retire, said Pandya. Saving money is a fairly important topic, and Pandya offered a list of strategies to make the process easier. First, it’s important to have a future goal in mind to work towards. For some, that goal could be saving enough for retirement at a certain age, or paying for a future vacation, or financing a child through post-secondary education. Goals should be achievable, and within grasp — saving more money than can conceivably be made on your specific salary is already doomed to fail, for example. Once a goal is chosen, now comes the planning. Consider your assets — things like RRSPs, TFSAs, and savings accounts — and judge where you stand already. Pandya advised always reinvesting whatever interest or dividends you collect from things like these.

Saving money doesn’t have to be as hard as it sounds. Next, it’s time to look at your everyday life and how saving part of your income will affect that. Pandya began her five-step strategy by emphasizing that it’s important to “pay yourself first.” Make sure to set aside some money to put away, even if it’s less than you would like. To determine how much you can keep for yourself, a budget is key. Lay out your fixed costs for the month — mortgage or rent, utilities, taxes, loans, and so on — and then take a look at those

variable costs — groceries, morning coffee, or unexpected expenses. Comparing these numbers to your income will tell you just how much money you have left in your pocket to play with. “After you see what you’re spending, that’s when you start to goal set,” said Pandya. In creating a budget, you have to be dedicated to keeping your spending on track. In order to amass any savings, living within your means is the key to success.

Pandya suggested taking a very detailed look at spending habits over a two week period. Her family tried a cash challenge, where she put $70 cash in her wallet and watched how long that lasted before it was gone. “Cash is king,” said Pandya, before explaining that using cash can help limit the urge to spend because it’s a more visual experience than a debit card, watching it disappear as you spend it. Her last important piece of advice was to avoid using a credit card at all costs — if you’re having to resort to spending on a credit card, then it may be time to readjust your budget. Saving for the future can be tough, said Pandya, but it is entirely possible. “This is a mentality you have to get in your head,” said Pandya. “You always have to think, ‘okay, I want to do this, and I’m committed to doing this.’” She encouraged people to take the time to create a plan on paper and stay committed to seeing it through — because the only way to see those results is with some determination. For help with creating a savings future, Pandya recommended looking up the resources from CPA Canada’s website as well as the Financial Consumer Agency of Canada website.

WDM’s new coffee club aims to Sask. Polytech launches new business management degree program combat loneliness, social isolation Larissa Kurz Moose Jaw Express Staff If you’re looking to break free of loneliness and isolation, or want to learn something about Moose Jaw’s history, then the Western Development Museum’s new coffee club is just for you. The WDM Coffee Club is a new initiative that is open to everyone. It includes a short, informal presentation about one of the museum’s artifacts or a Saskatchewan heritage theme, followed by a time of socializing with coffee and cookies. The goal of the program is to introduce new visitors to the building and help regular visitors gain a broader understanding of these histories. The talks may include short photo presentations of behind-the-scenes pictures of the artifacts — such as the interiors of planes and vehicles that are usually off-limits to the public — or even short films. The first Coffee Club get-together is Wednesday, Oct. 30 at 10 a.m. The museum will talk about one of the artifacts in its collection, the Vickers Vedette boat plane. It is $3 to drop in but does not include gallery admission. WDM members get in for free. For more information call 306-693-5989.

A new degree program is now available at Saskatchewan Polytech, available to students who have taken a previous diploma or journeyperson certificate and are seeking further education in the management field. The degree, a Bachelor of Applied Management, is the third stand-alone degree program approved by the Ministry of Advanced Education for Sask. Polytech. Anyone who has completed a non-business diploma or journeyperson certification is able to apply to the two-year baccalaureate program, making the program unique and flexible. “Diploma graduates and journeypersons applying for this baccalaureate program will bring their prior work experience to their studies, and have the opportunity to put into practice what they’ve learned, and will bring their new leadership and management skills to their future workplaces,” said Dr. Larry Rosia, president and CEO, in a press release. The two-year degree program will build on student’s current knowledge and experiences, to develop the skills for management roles. The program will develop skills in strategic management, leadership, and business, through hands-on and theoretical training that is flexible enough to obtain a degree while working. Topics included in the program include accounting, communications, marketing, finance, risk management, human resources, and cross-cultural management. Students will take part in experiential learning in the form of case studies, simulations, and even collaborative projects with industry. The degree program is focused towards students who are mid-career professionals, in a variety of trades and industry sectors, as a pathway to earn a bachelor’s degree while also acknowledging previous education and experience. Students interested in the program can apply online, through the Sask Polytech website. The program will begin in September of 2020 at the Regina campus, with the bridging courses for journeypersons beginning in January 2020. Sask Polytech will be accepting 30 students into the program each year.

Well, its been a crazy few weeks and so much to talk about. Lets start with CPI, (Canadian Protein Innovation). Although this or any industry would be good for Moose Jaw, the statement from City Hall received on November 1st is, and I quote “There was an agreement signed between the City and CPI but it expired as CPI did not proceed.” My last question on this might be, ‘when did the agreement actually expire, and when were they actually going to inform the citizens?’ You can read on page A21, A Scandal in the Making by Robert Thomas, asks more questions than gives answers, and at Monday October 28th council meeting it was mentioned that they had received three extensions, no mention that this was actually over. No sense beating this to death, as it does appears to be over, although a Pea (protein) processing plant did seem like a great fit for Moose Jaw and area, even at the sale of $12,000. per acre. What’s land worth in Moose Jaw? Now it seems to run at about $2000. per acre. Again, at Monday night’s council meeting, the city entered into a purchase agreement for 82.1 acres for $180,000. to a numbered company, 102050303 Saskatchewan Limited. The company was incorporated on May 15th, 2018 and the President is Allan Leung of Vancouver and the director is Donald Leung, also of Vancouver. They also have holding companies listed in BC, but we have been unable to find what business or businesses they run or operate at press time. The land is located east and south of the XL Beef Plant and is zoned commercial. Hopefully with such a deal, the sale scheduled to close March 31st, 2020 will be based on bringing an industry to Moose Jaw, we certainly do not know yet, but will continue to investigate. Again, and I’ve asked these questions before, ‘was the land ever listed for sale? ‘did anyone else have an opportunity to purchase this?’ or ‘was it just sold to a ‘suit and tie’ that walked into City Hall?’ Honestly, I think if communications were better, we would all be happier and perhaps less suspicious of what goes on behind the many closed door meetings,

which we were promised there would be less of. Canadian Tire The last response on this is as follow; • There is currently no signed agreement with Canadian Tire and negotiations are continuing. If an agreement is reached, it would need to be brought before City Council for approval, at which point contract details would be public. Would one be wrong in assuming this that land should now be listed for sale and open to other investors or corporations who see their business as a good fit in Moose Jaw? Hopefully that sign goes up this week, 3 year plus after-the-fact is long enough to make any decision in my opinion. Carpere Who knows where to start on this? Extension one is in the books and was done in an in camera session. Do I agree with the extension, for sure, lets hope this one works; we are due. Do I think there should be a penalty or an amendment to this deal, absolutely and here’s why. As Councillor Swanson stated, we offer way too many extensions without penalty. In this case, to my knowledge, we are not collecting interest on the 7.8 million dollars that should have been in the bank on October 31st (and to be VERY conservative, it could have been invested in a short term investment certificate for a 120 day term and it would return 1.90% per annum which is about $406 per day interest earned times 120 days invested = $48,723) and as for Carpere giving the city about one weeks notice, this does not show professional respect in my opinion. Yet according to Communication #31. Attachment #1, Offer to Purchase, Moose Jaw is paying interest on $780,000., that we are lead to believe we have as the deposit, of which $200,000. is non-refundable, with a host of conditions. We will have the link to the offer to purchase on line with the story if interested, and we have copies at our office for your viewing, so you can read it for yourself. This land in this deal is worth $10,000 per acre. So really, where does this leave the citizens of Moose Jaw?

In comments to the North Battleford Optimist on April 17th, 2018, an associate publication, here were the comments from Jim Puffalt, who was the City Manager of North Battleford at teh time; “I really have two roles,” Puffalt explains. “The first role is I run the day-to-day for council.” It is the city manager who is responsible for providing the services the public expects from a municipal government such as water, sewer, trash collection, policing, roads and sidewalks. But the other part of the job is being the chief adviser to council on decisions, providing them with information so they can make a decision. “Council will accept or not accept our recommendation. Council is the boss,” says Puffalt. In the end, what council decides is what is done, and council is accountable to the public. Ultimately, Puffalt works for the citizens of the city. And in Frazer Tolmie’s election platform, item one states: “Accountable to you: The tax payers of Moose Jaw deserve the opportunity to be aware of issues, to understand them fully and to see clear and accountable decision making processes.” Honestly, I just don’t see it. We as taxpayers may pay the wages; they may say they work for the people; but to me, I see less and less of that everyday. And finally on an off note, our mayor felt it necessary to take a shot at the Moose Jaw Express the other night live at the council meeting, inferring that the paper should be taxed as a recyclable. Now I can’t judge his opinion, he’s entitled to it, and whether I agree or not, he owns his own words and actions. I suppose it might be another economic driver for the City taxing the paper, like adding another $1.00 per hour to park downtown, or perhaps his thinking is that

we should shut down the paper and put 22 full-time and 37 part-time workers on the street, who pay taxes, purchase goods and services and who collectively put almost 2 million dollars back into this community annually. We are a functioning business, one that the City Hall supports through ads that are required to be placed by the Cities act, but a City Hall that does not give us the opportunity to quote on the $100,000. they spend on printing each year, and one who can’t seem to even find the funds to support a salute to our Veterans on Remembrance Day as they usually have in the past, but they can find funds to spend $300. for drinks on an evening out and leaving a 20% tip. Time would be better spent working on the city’s issues; direction needs to come from mayor and council for administration to act, but where is that direction? Are ex-politicians and motivational speakers the driving force? According to the mayor’s comments, he gets contributed ideas from Tourism Moose Jaw and the Chamber or so he claims. But what about the citizens who elected him? Are we the forgotten? Perhaps they should look after the businesses and the citizens that continue to build and support this City as this is not Newspaper vs City Hall. I would like to think we both have the betterment and affordability of the city in mind, as we both should be a voice for the people of Moose Jaw. There seems to be no bite in the dog, and the one word that keeps ringing in our ears is extension, extension, extension. Hopefully we don’t hear that at election time. And on elections, thankfully the council voted down the mayor’s suggestion of 58 days of no work for campaigning, as Dawn Luhning put it, ‘we are being paid to work, so we should be working.’

Food drive ‘like a well-oiled machine after 14 years’ Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

While young ghouls and goblins prowled the streets on Halloween looking for candy, hundreds of volunteers roamed throughout the community collecting bags of food for an important cause. Nearly 450 volunteers with Hillcrest Apostolic Church, the Moose Jaw and District Food Bank and other organizations visited neighbourhoods on Oct. 31 to collect food during the 14th annual Better Together Food Drive. Volunteers then brought those bags to the exhibition grounds, where one of the buildings had been turned into a sorting and packing centre. Looking after the organized chaos was Starlene Hermanson, a volunteer from Hillcrest Church who had been the floor manager for four years. The evening could be hectic and crazy, she explained, but also rewarding and exciting since it was amazing to see so many people working together to sort more than 51,000 pounds of food in less than three hours. “It’s unbelievable,” she said.

“I’m just so thankful for all the volunteers (who) come out and work together, (along with) the sense of unity this brings.” -Starlene Hermanson

Hermanson’s job involved directing people inside the building and ensuring all stations had people working at them. She explained to volunteers how to pack boxes and load pallets since it would be difficult to load poorly arranged pallets onto the semi-trucks. She also ensured everyone had a job, was productive and felt valued. However, she pointed out there were many volunteers who didn’t require direction since they had been coming year after year and knew their roles well. One such volunteer was Star Dueck, who, along with her husband Art, has volunteered with the food drive since its inception 14 years ago. She has taken part since it’s fun and she likes seeing the community come together. Some of her duties over the years have included collecting, sorting and boxing the food.

Volunteers brought in food from across the community and worked to sort the items into individual categories. Photo by Jason G. Antonio “I love volunteering … ,” she laughed. The food drive is “just like a bunch of little bumblebees working together and how it’s all over in one night. It amazes me.” What Hermanson enjoyed the most about the evening was watching the community come together “to accomplish such an amazingly huge feat.” “Sometimes when food is coming in, it’s like, ‘Will it ever be sorted?’ and then all of a sudden you turn around and it’s all done and boxed up and packaged up,” Her-

manson added. “I’m just so thankful for all the volunteers (who) come out and work together, (along with) the sense of unity this brings.” With coffee in hand, food bank assistant manager Deann Little watched the hive of activity with delight. “This is the most exciting day of the year according to my books. So I’m loving it right now,” she chuckled. The sorting and packing become better every year, Little said. This year organizers attempted something new, where they had tables in the middle to keep sorters on one side so they didn’t bump into volunteers who were bringing in food from vehicles near the garage door. The food bank collects boxes from McDonald’s five days a week year-round so they are all the same size and can be loaded on the pallets in a similar fashion, she continued. Long-time volunteers also know how best to pack those boxes since they remain the same size. “It’s kind of like a well-oiled machine after 14 years,” Little laughed. While this was the biggest food drive of the year, Little pointed out it is the monthly donations from churches and businesses that help keep the food bank afloat throughout the year. That is something for which she was also thankful.

Churko family hosting fundraiser concert in support of cancer Larissa Kurz

Just a few years ago, the Churko family lost their son Kelly to cancer and in a gesture to create some awareness for the fight against cancer, they will be featuring an incredible night of music in support of the Moose Jaw Health Foundation. A Cold Night for Cancer will reunite the Churko family onstage with their self-titled band, to show off their long-standing All-Canadian rock band Toque, featuring Cory Churko history with the Canadian on lead guitar. (supplied) music scene. It’s been a few years since Churko! has hit the stage together, and they are looking forward to sharing their music for a cause close to their hearts. The show will be a tribute to Kelly’s life and a gesture of support for cancer patients here in his hometown. Cory Churko will take a permanent spot on the stage for the night, as his all-Canadian rock band Toque will join him following his family’s opening set. Cory is the lead guitarist of Toque, alongside Todd Kerns on vocals, Brent Fitz on bass, and Shane Gaalass on drums. Toque plays almost exclusively Canadian rock-pop covers, although between the four members of the band, they’ve worked on music with an impressive resume of artists — Slash, Alice Cooper, The Guess Who, Shania Twain, and more. The group recently released their newest single, “Never Enough,” and played for a standing ovation at this summer’s Shake the Lake festival and the recent Heritage Classic in Regina. All the proceeds from the event will stay here in Moose Jaw, as the event has partnered with the Moose Jaw Health Foundation in their campaign to bring updated mammography equipment to Dr. F.H. Wigmore Hospital. A Cold Night for Cancer will take place on Jan. 4 at the Mae Wilson Theatre. Tickets are $50 each and organizers encourage the community to snatch up their seats quickly, as the show is expected to sell out quickly. Tickets will be available beginning Nov. 1 at 10 a.m., either on the Cultural Centre’s website or at the Box Office, in person or by calling 1 (306) 693-4700.

Vanier Theatre channeling the energy for Sister Act Larissa Kur

Energy is high in the Vanier Collegiate drama room as the students prepare for their upcoming debut of this year’s show: the Tony Award-winning musical Sister Act, adapted from the movie of the same name. Creative director Ben Sackville and the team of teachers helping put together the show felt that it was time for Vanier’s theatre department to debut a show that nods to the high school’s Catholic identity, as well as their cast. “[We wanted to do] a show that really sought out to explore our identity as a Catholic school,” said Sackville. “And we thought it’d be great to do a comedy.” With the medium-sized female centric cast, Sister Act stood out as a modern musical that was sure to catch the audience’s attention. “We thought that the cast of the show being mostly made up of women really reflected the kind of students that we have often coming up for our shows, and so it was just kind of a perfect fit for us,” said Sackville. With about 50 students making up the cast and crew, the production is entirely student-constructed — from the acting to the choreography to the set and technical aspects. Sister Act features music written by Alan Menken, made

time putting on a professional show at the Mae Wilson, but each experience is an exciting one. “I think it will be both like really spectacular and an amazing experience for those students,” said Sackville. “It’s always fun to see the way that students kind of react to that week, and how they support each other and how we find ways to support them.” Sackville is really looking forward to the show, especially seeing all the hard work his cast has put into their All of the choreography for Vanier Collegiate’s up- performance.

Cornerstone Christian students bringing Annie to the stage Larissa Kurz

Cornerstone Christian School is bringing the Tony Award-winning musical Annie to the stage of the Mae Wilson Theatre from Nov. 6-9, with a full-fledged performance from a hard-working cast and crew. This year, the team of directors decided on bringing back the beloved orphan’s story for the third time in CCS history — although it’s been a number of years since the last performance of the musical.

The singing, the dancing, the acting is really, really strong,” said Johnson. “It’s just delightful to watch these young performers just do what they love and do it so well.” Tickets for the shows are available through the Cultural Centre’s website, or at the Box Office either in person or by calling 1 (306) 693-4700. Curtains rise at 7 p.m. each night.

REFLECTIVE MOMENTS House guests rebuffed new towels, face cloths It had been almost a quarter century since our guest room had been occupied by overnight guests. Time goes by so quickly when it is just two of us residing in the family home and in that time, we had become complacent about which of us would Joyce Walter take over certain rooms in For Moose Jaw Express which to store and hang on ronjoy@sasktel.net to valuable treasures. We were ecstatic when our friends said they were coming to Moose Jaw for a visit. They tentatively suggested they would investigate a hotel room but we immediately vetoed that idea, saying our home is their home, dust, junk and all. They agreed that staying with us would be conducive for more visiting time and the plan was set. We would have house guests. Yes, guests that would have access to every corner of the house. Yikes: dust mop where are you when you’re needed? Our potential guests assured us they wouldn’t look in the corners, but that wouldn’t be a problem, because most of those corners were obscured by boxes and bags, accumulations of stuff, with only single pathways for navigational purposes. And so it began, a methodical look at what would stay and what would go to charity book sales and to collectors of clothing and household items. We begged boxes from friends, family and local businesses and during their available time, the nephew and niece and their truck were conscripted to deliver loads to various locations, including the city landfill site. Time-line schedules were made to ensure the debris would be gone and the corners dusted before our guests arrived. In order to make the job easier and save our backs from some heavy lifting, we bought a cordless vacuum and zoomed around the house and up and down the stairs collecting buckets of dust that we would have been embarrassed for anyone to see. We scrubbed and polished and hid away some boxes in a room that would not be used by our guests unless they wandered in there by mistake. They would have retreated in a hurry. It is ironic that after our guests had returned to their Ontario home, a provincial newspaper did a feature story on what to do to make a house more friendly for overnight visitors. I read it with interest and noted that we had correctly carried out many of the recommendations. I removed extraneous items from the guest room. Space was provided in the guest room closet. Chairs were provided on which to store luggage and for sit-

ting for such chores as putting on socks should the bed be too soft or too high. I cleared away stuff on the dresser top. The bathtub was cleaned thoroughly, and the shower was checked by the plumber. The newspaper story suggested the bedding should be pristine. Yes, it was. The sheets were new and so were the pillows. Unfortunately, the pillows had to be scrunched into the pillowcases that were a size too small because I misread the packaging. In the bathroom, the recommendation was new towels and face cloths to be available. I was so proud of myself for doing that without any prompts. I hung newly purchased green hand towels and face cloths, plus put the new bath towels readily available in the linen closet. I failed the recommendations to put out guest robes, slippers and hand lotion. Nor did I provide scented

candles and bottled water and the hangers in the closet were not covered with fabric. Perhaps my hostess training required a refresher course. Because our guests were such good friends, we felt comfortable urging them to make themselves at home, use the toaster at will, help themselves to bacon and eggs or cereal. Dust if they liked, or not. But I have to confess to some disappointment in their visit. Our guests went home without using the new towels and face cloths. And so they hang there on the towel rack, waiting to be put away for the next visit. So lonely, so forlorn!

Lyle Stewart MLA Lumsden-Morse

Lyle Stewart

Over the past 12 years, Saskatchewan has enjoyed a MLA, remarkable period of strong Lumsden-Morse and sustained growth we hadn’t seen in a long time. As we prepare to enter the 2020s, our goal is to keep growing so all Saskatchewan people continue to benefit. In the coming weeks, we will release a new Growth Plan with specific targets and a roadmap of how we will achieve them. These targets include 1.4 million people living in Saskatchewan and 100,000 more people working in Saskatchewan by 2030. The fall sitting of the legislature is now underway and our government has introduced our vision for a new decade of growth. We have outlined a number of measures the government will be taking during the upcoming legislative session, including: • Creating a fund of up to $10 million to assist Estevan, Coronach and surrounding areas transition to new economic development opportunities for workers affected

by the federally-mandated phase out of coal-fired electricity by 2030; • Introducing and funding a plan to reduce surgical wait times; • Introducing legislation for the regulation of vaping and vaping products; • Taking measures to improve the safety and well-being of First Nations children and reduce the number of children that need to come under the province’s care; • Opening the new Regina Bypass; • Introducing tougher penalties for cell phone usage while driving; • Continuing the constitutional challenge to the federal carbon tax in the Supreme Court; • Continuing to explore the potential for small modular reactors to produce emissions-free electricity using Saskatchewan uranium; • Implementing Clare’s Law, which allows police to disclose information that could help protect potential victims of interpersonal violence; • Introducing a new Fisheries Act to provide greater protection against invasive aquatic species; • Amending The Lobbyists Act to address recommendations made by the Registrar of Lobbyists in his recent annual reports; • 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 government plans to introduce about 30 pieces of legislation during the fall sitting and will table a budget during the spring sitting that is expected to make significant investments in infrastructure. Our government will continue to plan for a growing province by keeping our economy strong, investing in important government services and ensuring everyone in Saskatchewan continues to enjoy the benefits of growth. The recent federal election results show that the path and policies of the federal government these past few years has divided our nation. The growing sense of frustration and western alienation is now undeniable. Canada now has a Liberal minority government that did not receive the popular vote, has no clear mandate and will be supported by either a 4th place party that has never governed, or a party that does not want to be part of this nation. This government also has no representation from Saskatchewan or Alberta. In his election night address, Prime Minister Trudeau stated to Saskatchewan and Alberta: “I’ve heard your frustration. I want to be there to support you.” Saskatchewan has made it clear: if the Prime Minister is serious about acting on his words, he can cancel the federal carbon tax; commit to negotiating a new equalization formula that is fair to Saskatchewan and Alberta; and commit to developing a plan to build pipelines and get our exports to international markets. It’s time for a new deal with Canada. The Prime Minister says he’s heard our frustration and wants to support us – Saskatchewan stands ready to meet with him so he can prove it.

Saskatchewan-born soldier killed during ambush in Korean War Story arranged by Jason G. Antonio

Saskatchewan boy William J. Horning was born on a farm in the Tompkins area west of Moose Jaw and later moved to the United States, where he served with the army and later died fighting in the Korean War. Horning was born on Feb. 16, 1927 on a farm south of Tompkins. Not much is known about his family, which was originally from Michigan and homesteaded in the Stone District south of Tompkins. One headstone in the Piapot Cemetery reads: Albert William Horning, father, 1895 to 1935, and also includes son Cecil Earl Horning, 1931 to 2011. Albert is said to have died when William was eight years old. The family later moved to William, Idaho. This is where Horning enlisted in 1950 and was later attached as a corporal to A Company, 76th Engineer Construction Battalion, United States Army. The 76th Engineer Construction Battal-

Cpl. William J. Horning grew up on a farm near Tompkins, Sask., west of Moose Jaw and later fought in the Korean War with the U.S. Army. He was killed in an ambush along with nine other men. He is buried in the Piapot Village Cemetery. Photo submitted ion arrived in South Korea in July 1950 and immediately began building military infrastructure such as roads and housing. The battalion’s motto was, “To work is to conquer.”

Horning was killed in action on Jan. 16, 1951 when North Korean troops ambushed him and his group from A Company while they were loading a dump truck in a riverbed near Chinan, South Korea.

He was just 23 at the time of his death. Nine men were killed during the ambush. The bodies of all nine were sent back to their home communities. Those who died include: Pte. William David Bennett, Volusia, Florida, Pte. 1st Class Richard D. Brothers, Loogootee, Indiana, Pte. 1st Class Roland Edmund Christian, East Jaffrey, New Hampshire, Cpl.

Halloween with SCRAPS brought the costumes out early Larissa Kurz

Again this year, the annual SCRAPS Halloween party was a great success. Taking over the Pizza Hut on Main Street on Oct. 29, attendees donned their costumes a few days early to celebrate at A Scaredy Cat Halloween — and help with some fundraising for the various programs SCRAPS runs for stray cats in the city.

Omission by Saskatchewan Government noted from Throne Speech The Saskatchewan Government Speech from the Throne was remarkable for an absence. With an election looming in 12 months voters could have expected a promise of some goodies — spending measures to buy votes next October. There were no such promises in the Throne Speech. Even a government with support as strong as the Saskatchewan Party likes to offer goodies before the election. It’s part of the politicians’ desire to spend. Either this government feels no need to promise spending or there is no money to spend on re-election promises. It is evident from provincial finances that there is no extra cash floating around. The cupboard is bare, as NDP Premier Roy Romanow said in his 1991 tour of provincial media outlets after defeating the Devine Conservatives. Few leaders do those media tours any longer, preferring social media to distribute their propaganda. Instead of promises to lure voters in the Throne Speech, the government outlined what it claims to have done since the Saskatchewan Party became government 12 years ago. The list is long and impressive with one catch taken from the speech “growth our province has not seen since the 1920s.”

The provincial government can lay claim to developing the right climate for business growth but there is no legitimate claim to having created 1920s-like growth. The facts are clear: in the first eight years of Saskatchewan Party government the world couldn’t get enough of our resources, oil, potash, and grain. During the last four years the demand for our resources has declined as oil and potash prices and demand fell and as international relations cost us grain exports. Still, under the Saskatchewan Party population decline was reversed adding around 160,000 people through an aggressive immigration policy. Health care spending has increased significantly more than doubling in 12 years. That increase placed 3,800 more nurses and about 900 more doctors in the province Even with that, many towns are still without doctors and on-site emergency services; wait times for operations have not met targets; gaps exist in specialists. Infrastructure spending has seen five new hospitals and 13 new long-term care centres. Among them are Saskatoon’s Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital and the North Battleford mental hospital.

Education spending increased substantially but still lags the 27,000 new students in 12 years, Classroom sizes – often 30 to 40 compared to the preferred 20 — still haunt school systems by creating hurdles to effective teaching. One of the most pressing obstacles to increased spending and the goal of a balanced budget comes from Mother Nature. Crop insurance claims caused by poor harvest weather could delay a balanced budget. The province and the federal government usually put enough money into crop insurance to cover total losses at

current insurance rates on about five per cent of seeded acres. Given this harvest, crop insurance can expect partial claims on half of seeded acres, far exceeding planned funding. Evidently the Saskatchewan Government hopes voters won’t ask: “What are you doing for us next term?” Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@ sasktel.net The views and opinions expressed in this article are those of the author, and do not necessarily reflect the position of this publication.

- Moose Jaw’s Source for News! Local news, weather and sports Your connection to the world

Social media addictions can have very real implications by Dr. Steven Heidinger, Moose Jaw Chiropractor I was recently making a purchase at a retail store and had a moment that made me shake my head with frustration and awe. The employee was pleasant in asking me if I had found everything that I was looking for, but as she was about to ring my purchase through, she was distracted by her phone which had lit up as it sat next to the till. Instead of ignoring her phone, she ignored me, and even though it was probably only 10 seconds, the “old man” in me had a “tsk-tsk” moment. Now what if that employee decided to take a break from her time tending to a customer to take a swig of a beer or to scratch a lottery ticket? These actions would possibly lead to an immediate dismissal or at the very least an in-

tervention that would help the employee deal with addictions. Research is telling us that social media addiction is very real and it may be affecting job performance similar to other addictions. Over 60 percent of adults check Facebook every day, and those who have a smartphone and a Facebook account, check it on average up to 14 times per day. This is an average, which means there are some that likely check Facebook many more times than that. For Facebook users, 1 in every 7 minutes is spent on this social media platform. Psychologically, smartphone addiction is categorized similarly to compulsive gambling with overlapping characteristics such as social withdrawal, mood changes, lack of control and the amount of time spent on the activity. There are many issues surrounding social media addiction relating to work and family matters that should not be taken lightly. As a small business employer, myself, work productivity is important. If I had employees neglecting work duties on average of once every 7 minutes, I would take great concern. Aside from productivity issues, what about the social repercussions? Social media addiction is associated with

Sask. harvest yields about average with long term Three days EXPRESS before Halloween, Saskatchewan farmers had 90 per cent of the crop harvested. Despite bad weather conditions farmers managed to pull seven per cent off in the week ended Oct. 20, according to the Saskatchewan Agriculture weekly crop report.

Provincial government spending $10 million to reduce surgical wait times

burnout. Burnout is a real psychophysiological problem that not only affects work production but also leads to fatigue, lack of motivation, cynicism, anxiety and depression. For those of us who have smart phones (and that means nearly all of us), taking an honest account of our social media habits is important in identifying an existing problem or a problem in its early stages. Is your social media usage affecting work or studying performance? Do you think about social media even when you are not on your phone? Do you use social media as a way to escape from stresses in life, to forget, temporarily, about other things? Being “old school”, the thought of an employee shirking work responsibilities because of Facebook makes me reflexively want to fire them on the spot. However, in today’s work environment we have a duty first to find employees the help they need to deal with any addiction, and that may very well include social media addiction.

the trick or treating eve. Twelve per cent of canola, eight per cent of spring wheat and six per cent of barley fields were unharvested. Yields of major crops were average or a bit higher than average. The 38 bushels an acre canola yields compare with the five-year average of 38.3 bushels. The 45 bushel an acre spring wheat harvest compares with 44.3 in the five-year average. Durum average yield of 38 bushels fell below the 41.2 five-year average. Barley at 66 bushels was above the 63.3 five-year average. Flax at 22 bushels is below the 24-bushel average. Unfortunately, most crops harvested after the mid-September rains lost grade and quality. 19113BS0 19112BS0

The provincial government wants to help Saskatchewan patients get their surgery sooner than expected. The government has announced $10 million in new funding for reducing surgical wait times. According to a news release, approximately 1,700 additional surgeries will be performed before the end of March 2020. These surgeries will include cataracts, hip and knee replacements, gynecological surgeries, dental, and ear, nose and throat (ENT) procedures. The number of Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation (TAVI) cardiac procedures will also grow by 60 per cent. TAVI is an option for patients who require aortic valve replacement and are not candidates

for open-heart surgery. Thirty additional TAVI procedures will be performed this year, increasing the total to 80. This procedure will be available in Saskatoon and Regina. “I read the personal letters from people waiting for surgery and cardiac procedures, and I assure you that reducing the length of time people wait for their procedures is a priority for our government,” Health Minister Jim Reiter said in a news release. “We are committed to improving wait times, and this investment is a positive step in that direction.” Most surgeries will be completed in Regina and Saskatoon but some will be done in centres like Lloydminster, Prince Albert, and Moose Jaw.

A Scandal in the Making By Robert Thomas Opinion/Commentary

The following is a column written by Robert Thomas for the now defunct Moose Jaw Times-Herald in May 2017, but it was never published. It is the true story about how an old forgotten journalist who everyone forgot about through a series of coincidences stumbled onto what should be one of the biggest scandals ever to hit Moose Jaw. Moose Jaw annexed land created an industrial park and used a multi-million dollar infrastructure grant opportunity for CPI. The infrastructure was never built for CPI but could have been used elsewhere in the city - something mentioned at Council by Councillor Brian Swanson. It is the story of corruption and deceit half a world away and how a love-stricken Moose Javian with his good friend Olya stumbled upon it. In August 2019 Michael Schoenert, a director of Canadian Protein Innovation, who sought to bring the pea protein plant to Moose Jaw sat in a German court room charged with allegations of bribery and corruption involving his former employer Emsland-Starke. Herr Schoenert is innocent until the allegations are proven against him. 2017:05:18 CPI DIRECTOR FACES GERMAN LEGAL PROBE: PEAS PASS THE TRUTH. IS THE CPI PLANT IN JEOPARDY? “This story begins with myself and 3 friends and a trip we took to Germany to sign a contract to import and market a Pea Protein based cosmetic in their small shop in Odessa, Ukraine. But how could this have any connection to Moose Jaw? How could this have anything to do with what could be one of the biggest political scandals to hit the Friendly City? As we sat around, I spoke about how where I live we would soon have our own state of the art Pea Protein Processing Plant and it would be really neat if the Pea Protein in the cosmetics just might come from Saskatchewan. As we discussed this incredible coincidence, I remembered the name of the proposed Plant’s Director - MICHAEL SCHONERT - and instantly the cosmetic plant director told me something I never heard in the Friendly City By now most people have heard about Canadian Protein Innovation Ltd (CPI) and their plans to purchase 100 acres of land in the new Industrial Park for $1,208,734 plus applicable taxes from the City for a Pea Protein plant. The land was supposed to be paid for by June 1, 2017. CPI was to serve as the anchor business in the Industrial Park with other firms moving in around them. The Plant would be given a guaranteed water price at 2015 rates for 5 years plus a

tax abatement of 100% for 5 years under a job creation program. About 12 trucks would bring in peas every day with a similar amount of product moved out to the GLOBAL TRANSPORTATION HUB (GTH) to be shipped all over the world.” The main promoter for CPI was it’s Director MICHAEL SCHONERT who was a plant director at Emsland – Starke in Germany which is the largest starch producer in Europe. The plant uses potatoes in its process there. FROM THE OUTSET, CPI has ALWAYS STATED the Moose Jaw facility was DEPENDENT UPON SECURING FINANCING. In his state of the city address in January, 2017, Mayor Frasier Tolmie said he had personally spoken to CPI and was highly enthused about the construction set to start in June 2017. So, what could I have stumbled on in Germany at a cosmetics factory that could affect a project back home at Moose Jaw? Before I reveal that, let me first point out what I write about what I learnt they are all ALLEGATIONS and HAVE NOT BEEN PROVEN IN COURT. What I learnt about were allegations of fraud and embezzlement surrounding – Michael Schonert, now a director of CPI, and his former employer the EmslandStarke Plant. In the December 20, 2014 edition of the 80,000 circulation German newspaper GRASCHAFTEN NACHRICHTEN in a story entitled Emsland Starke “Serious Incidents” a report details how plant directors HUBERT EILTING and Michael SCHONERT were dismissed without notice due to a “serious breach of trust”. In the May 13, 2015 edition of the Nachrichten in an article entitled Emsland – Starke Based on Transparency more details are shed into the ALLEGED activities of now CPI Director Michael Schonert. In that article, Emsland – Starke’s new management reveal a KPMG forensic audit was looking into alleged “irregularities” at the plant. These alleged irregularities lead to the summary dismissals of former Plant directors Hubert EILTING and Michael SCHONERT. The article states the German Prosecutor’s Office had made inquiries into whether or not anything CRIMINAL had occurred. It needs to be noted NO CRIMINAL CHARGES have been laid against Herrs EILTING and SCHONERT but it also likewise needs to be noted the KPMG Forensic Audit is STILL UNDER REVIEW by Prosecutors in Germany. In the March 8, 2017 edition of the Nachrichten an article details how EmslandStarke has filed suit against Michael Schonert for TENS OF MILLIONS as

a result of the KPMG Audit. The Nachrichten also reports the criminal investigation into the EMBEZZLEMENT and BREACH OF TRUST ALLEGATIONS CONTINUES. So far in German courts, Michael SCHONERT was party to civil proceedings and was assessed a 450,000 Euro (approximately $680,000 CAD) loss but it is now under appeal due to alleged actions at Emsland-Starke. It needs to be noted at present there are no indications or official announcements of CPI not constructing a Pea Protein Plant in Moose Jaw. All of this, however, still leaves me a little bewildered. First, was the Province aware of the Fraud/Embezzlement allegations involving Michael Schonert in Germany? In a Freedom of Information request, the Provincial Economy Department replied they had no such records. So, the Province appears to be unaware of the legal actions and allegations in Germany. Secondly, since the Province found CPI and “thoroughly” vetted them, how could they miss this? How could the Province not just call Michael Schonert’s former employer for a reference check? Should there be some concerns about vetting and approving CPI who has a director summarily fired and now facing Civil Actions plus a still on-going criminal probe involving allegations of embezzlement from his previous employer? Was the Province so desperate for new investment into the Moose Jaw - Regina Industrial Corridor and for end-users of the GTH they failed to properly vet CPI? Thirdly, If the Pea Protein Plant is cancelled due to these revelations in Germany, and the Province attracted, vetted

them so thoroughly and brought CPI to the City, is the Province prepared to compensate Moose Jaw for precious time and dollars the City is investing and has already spent to bring them here? Is the City spending millions on land acquisitions and installing infrastructure, annexing RM property, staff time, public meetings and other related costs on a project that proper vetting may have found from the outset as not advisable? Fourthly - Throughout the CPI story, the Pea Protein Plant’s has always been conditional upon financing. CPI has seemingly been reluctant on revealing their investor(s)’ identities other then saying it was a German agri-businessman financially behind the project. Is Herr Schonert just a CPI director with industry knowledge or is he also an investor? Can this project come to fruition without his participation? In the end though, where is CPI actually getting their money? I will admit I did try to speak to someone from CPI for a clarification but so far have not been able to obtain contact information. Personally, I hope it does proceed because it does sound like a good fit for the City and farmers, but I will be honest and say for me personally I have some great concerns. There are lots of questions that need to be asked here and we need the answers quickly.

City Hall Council Notes

Deadline extended for airport authority to access municipal funding for project Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

The City of Moose Jaw will continue to support upgrades at the community airport by extending a deadline for when the management group can access matching grant funds. During its Oct. 28 regular meeting, city council voted 5-2 in favour of extending the $500,000 matching grant from the municipal land reserve fund by stretching the deadline to access those funds to Dec. 31, 2023. This is the first extension granted to the Moose Jaw Municipal Airport Authority to access this fund. Councillors Brian Swanson and Dawn Luhning were opposed. Council also voted unanimously in favour to approve an operating agreement with the airport authority. Council discussion The money from the municipal reserves account was built up through the selling of municipal property, said Swanson. Now it’s being given to the airport authority to match funds it receives from the provincial and federal governments for infrastructure funding. The project to extend the airport’s runway is expected to cost $3 million, with $1 million coming from both the provincial and federal governments, $500,000 from the airport authority and

its donors, and a matching $500,000 from Moose Jaw. City administration presented a report recently about creating an infrastructure levy that would collect money from taxpayers and use it to fix roads and water lines, Swanson said. It seems as if residents have to dig into their pockets to pay if they want their roads and water pipes fixed, but the municipality will simply transfer money to the airport authority. That defies user-pay models at most airports, he continued. On most airplane tickets, there is an improvement fee added to help upgrade that particular airport. “The users of the airport pay for the airport, not the municipal tax base …,” Swanson remarked. “If there is $500,000 lying around … let’s put it to road repairs.” Most members on council have supported this project from the start, said Coun. Chris Warren. Recently the City of Regina gave the Regina International Airport major tax exemptions so it could reinvest that money to enhance economic activity. Warren pointed out several levels of government are funding this project, along

with private funding to match the municipality’s $500,000 grant. That grant would be paid back over five years. “It’s another piece of the funding model that we can’t forget,” he added. Regina was originally collecting property taxes from the airport authority but gave up those taxes if the airport could secure an American carrier with direct flights to American cities, Swanson said. Giving up those taxes was meant to stimulate, incentivize and subsidize an American carrier. United Airlines and Delta Airlines pulled out of Regina in 2015 and 2016, respectively, due to the low Canadian dollar and an economic downturn. City council has also quadrupled the yearly operating grant it provides to the airport authority, increasing it to $140,000 per year from $30,000 per year, continued Swanson. This means council is using taxpayers’ money to pay back the loan it is receiving from the airport. “Private investment there is a bit of a chimera — it’s not really there,” he added. “I’d like to point out that a $500,000 grant to the airport and an increase in the operating grant … (means) the legacy of this council — it’s biggest eco-

nomic initiative percentage-wise — is with the municipal airport. That benefits very, very few at the expense of many others.” Land sale Also during the meeting, council voted 6-1 in favour of having city administration enter into a purchase and sales agreement with numbered corporation 102050303 Saskatchewan Ltd. for 82.21 acres at $180,000 as long as two issues are addressed: • That the municipality commission an environmental phase 1, and if required, a phase 2. If remediation is required, city administration would negotiate a cost-sharing arrangement for council’s consideration • That the existing city tax incentive policies be applied Swanson was opposed to the motion. Although the actual name of the business was not listed, a search of the province’s corporate registry indicates that the numbered company’s mailing address is 1500-1874 Scarth Street in Regina. The next regular council meeting is Tuesday, Nov. 12.

Issue of safety ignored during talks about airport funding, says board chair Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

The Moose Jaw airport needs upgrades so it is safe for medical personnel to use, a fact lost in the conversation about matching grant funding for the project, according to the airport authority. Fixed-wing air ambulance planes use the airport when delicate patients need to be transferred, such as to the Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital in Saskatoon, explained Greg Simpson, chairman of the Moose Jaw Municipal Airport Authority. He thought those medical personnel were putting their lives at risk every time they came to Moose Jaw and had to use the runway. “It’s about time we finally addressed that safety concern,” Simpson said on Oct. 28 after the regular city council meeting. “Who wouldn’t want their child to be put on a fast first-class service? Those are the things being missed in this conversation and I think it’s important the public knows about that.” SALE BY TENDER OF LAND ADJACENT TO THE TOWN OF ASSINIBOIA IN RM OF LAKE OF THE RIVERS NO. 72 LAND Blk/par B-Plan 62MJ09453 Ext 179 approximately 108 acres Said land is directly adjacent to the town of Assiniboia and is part of the towns future growth plans and designated for potential single residential development.

Council voted 5-2 in favour of extending the $500,000 matching grant from the municipal land reserve fund by stretching the deadline to Dec. 31, 2023 so the airport authority could still access those funds. Council also voted in favour to approve an operating agreement with the airport authority. Signing this agreement is a bold step, Simpson said. There will be a significant gain since the matching grant funding will eventually turn into $3 million, with $1 million coming from both the federal and provincial government, $500,000 from Moose Jaw and $500,000 raised by the authority. “Who would turn down that increase in dollars?” Simpson asked, noting the matching grant will generate five times as much money. “We’re going to have this thing up and running in the spring.” The airport authority has heard comments about how inadequate the runway is, said board vice-chair Jarrett Johnson. When Walmart was originally going to be built here, a company executive wondered why the company should build in Moose Jaw when executives couldn’t fly their corporate jets here. “I know the stigma is it’s just rich people using it, but it’s an economic driver for the city,” said Johnson, adding a manager of a billion-dollar investment fund said he would not invest in Moose Jaw since he couldn’t fly his corporate jet into the airport. “People simply see it as a rich person’s tool and it’s simply not.” There is a misunderstanding that the federal government denied funding for the renovation project at the airport, said Simpson. This infrastructure project was negotiated last October between the provincial and federal governments over how to allocate federal transit funding. Once that negotiation occurred, the project was given the green light, he added. The authority submitted an intake application in April and is now weeks away from receiving ministerial approval for the project.

City Hall Council Notes Mayor, councillor quarrel Jason over meeting dates and attendance records G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express A discussion about the proposed 2020 city council schedule turned into a verbal sparring match between Mayor Fraser Tolmie and Coun. Brian Swanson, with the former accusing the latter of missing meetings too often. City administration presented a report during council’s Oct. 28 regular meeting that looked at the schedule for regular council and executive committee meetings for next year. The area that caused tempers to flare was around when this council’s final meeting is of its four-year term and when the first meeting is for the newly elected council; a municipal election is set for Monday, Nov. 9, 2020. Specifically, administration proposed that the final meeting for this council would be Monday, Sept. 28, 2020, and the first official meeting of the new council would be Monday, Nov. 23, 2020 — a break of 56 days. Lighting the match Swanson didn’t think it was necessary to have a 56-day break, nor was it necessary to shut down elected officials for so long. He put forward an amendment that council should meet Sept. 8 and 21, 2020, and Oct. 5 and 19, 2020. This would still give candidates nearly three weeks to campaign before the municipal election. “To have no council meeting in October is not right,� Swanson said, adding there would be a 35-day break between council meetings based on his suggestion.

The first three dates Swanson proposed were acceptable, but the final date in October was problematic, said Tolmie, who put forward another amendment to remove Oct. 19. He thought residents running in the municipal election should receive the same amount of time to campaign and the same media coverage as those already on council. Provincial and federal politicians also break early before elections since they have an advantage — more media coverage —over people running against them, he added. Stoking the fire Those politicians break early since they have a further distance to travel, replied Swanson. If an MLA represents Meadow Lake and has to travel from Regina, that politician is at a disadvantage compared to someone already in the community. Meanwhile, MPs from British Columbia have to travel across the country from Ottawa to reach their ridings. Dropping the Oct. 19 date means council wouldn’t meet for 48 days, which is still too long, he added. â€œâ€Ś I feel one thing the community wants when people are running is for people to have a fair chance. I feel that there are a lot of people out there not running because they don’t feel it’s fair,â€? said Tolmie, adding it would be ethical to give others running to be mayor the same opportunity as he has.

Council then voted 6-1 against the second amendment to remove Oct. 19 from the first amendment; Tolmie was in favour. Pouring on the gasoline Coun. Heather Eby supported the original amendment, saying she was surprised at the proposed 56-day break and when council next met. She understood there were logistics to running a provincial election — to be held two weeks before the municipal election — but thought council had been elected to work until the last possible date. Her preference for a schedule was to have weekly meetings on Mondays, with the regular and executive committee meetings alternating. She thought that served council better in the past. Council is meeting more than during the previous schedule since it holds planning meetings in between council dates, said Tolmie. It never used to do that during the previous schedule. It’s untrue that council meets more often than in the past since council members still have the first and third Mondays free, said Swanson. Creating an inferno There has been a concern about Swanson’s attendance considering everyone else shows up for council meetings and planning sessions, replied Tolmie. “So I think that, Coun. Swanson, I would be concerned about the comments you’re bringing forward because you have the

highest absentee rate,â€? he added. Turning to look at the mayor, Swanson pointed out he had served on council for 24 years and had missed three council meetings. He missed the recent planning session since he was on vacation. “I’ll stack my attendance record up over time with anybody’s,â€? he continued. “If I sometimes miss a meeting or two it’s because my gorge begins to rise and I have to make a decision — do I sit here and listen to this inanity or do I leave? ‌ “If you want to take shots at my attendance you better be able to back that up.â€? Combustion Common courtesy is to tell other councillors and city administration if you don’t plan to be at meetings, said Tolmie. Councillors are elected to serve the community, so it’s important to have scheduled meetings written into agendas. “And if it’s based on your temperament, well, Coun. Swanson ‌ ,â€? Tolmie began, before Swanson rose from his seat to call a point of order. “I do not have to listen to the mayor give me a lecture,â€? Swanson remarked, a statement with which Eby — the deputy mayor — agreed and who called the meeting back to order. “Alright, that’s fine,â€? replied Tolmie. Council then voted unanimously to approve the amendment and the motion as amended. Council next meets on Tuesday, Nov. 12.

Council wants province to overturn decision made by appeals board Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

City council wants the Saskatchewan Appeals Board to overturn a decision that the community Development Appeals Board made that allowed Holy Trinity Catholic School Division to proceed with a project. During its Oct. 28 regular meeting, council voted 6-1 in favour of having city administration submit an application to the provincial appeals board to overturn a decision made at the local level. Coun. Chris Warren was opposed. The Development Appeals Board had given approval to the school division for it to add a relocatable (portable) classroom to St. Agnes School at 330 Oxford Street West even though the project contravened the municipal zoning bylaw. Background The board heard the organization’s application during a meeting on Oct. 15, where Holy Trinity asked for relaxation of the zoning bylaw since there would not be any additional on-site parking spaces added since 21 stalls already exist, a report to city council explained. This is contrary to the bylaw, which would have required two barrier-free parking stalls and one loading zone to be added. The school division applied for a building permit last June to added the portable classroom. City hall deter-

 

 

       

   Â? Â?   Â?Â?    ­ Â?€ ‚ Â?­  €­  €     ƒ€   €  Â?      € ­      ­  Â?  Â?     € Â? Â?€ „…­Â?Â?Â?€ †‡„ˆ ‰Š‹ÂŒŠ‰ ‹€€ƒ Ž‘Â?€‰     ’“†”

mined that to meet the requirements of the zoning bylaw, two existing parking stalls had to be enlarged to meet barrier-free requirements and one on-site loading had to be provided. The building permit was issued on the condition that the division re-submit plans to meet on-site parking requirements. The division chose to appeal this condition. The municipality advised the division that city hall had no issues with the loading zone issue, but a human rights complaint could be lodged over the barrier-free parking exemption. During the meeting, a representative for Holy Trinity spoke about the project, the report continued. He explained the school is 100-per-cent overcapacity so a portable classroom would manage the class sizes within the building. There is also nothing inside the school that is barrier-free, while all loading is done on Oxford Street. After reviewing the material, the appeals board decided the requested relaxation of the bylaw would not be a special privilege since the board would grant a variance to other school divisions or businesses in similar

circumstances. Furthermore, the request would not be contrary to the purpose and intent of the bylaw since there would not be any additional staff added once the portable was installed, nor does the school require a loading area since it rarely receives large deliveries. Lastly, the request would not injuriously affect neighbouring properties since no extra parking would be required, while no letters of concern were received from adjacent property owners. Council discussion The idea that the school does not have to offer barrier-free parking since the building is not free of barriers is troubling, said Coun. Brian Swanson, a former teacher and current public school trustee. If council accepted that logic, then other organizations or businesses could put forward the same argument and that could have future ramifications. “To allow a development to bypass the requirement for barrier-free parking because the building is not barrier-free, to me is just unacceptable in this day and age,� he added. The next regular council meeting is Tuesday, Nov. 12.

Second student from Peacock Collegiate appointed to youth advisory committee Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Another student from A.E. Peacock Collegiate is set to join the City of Moose Jaw’s youth advisory committee. During its Oct. 28 regular meeting, city council approved a motion to appoint Peacock student Liam Vargo to the committee as a youth-at-large representative. His appointment commences immediately and will conclude on June 30, 2020. Council made its initial appointments to the youth committee during its regular meeting on Sept. 9. City hall then received an application on Oct. 10 from Vargo for an

appointment to the youth advisory committee. The committee is composed of one member of city council and two students from the following schools: Prairie South School Division Central Collegiate Cornerstone Christian School Peacock Collegiate Riverview Collegiate Holy Trinity Catholic School Division Vanier Collegiate

École Ducharme School Saskatchewan Polytechnic Up to four extra youth-at-large representatives aged 18 to 25 who are not students from schools currently represented on the committee can also be appointed. Since there is one youth-at-large representative from Peacock Collegiate already on the committee, it is acceptable for council to appoint a second applicant to the committee, according to a report from city administration. The next regular meeting is Tuesday, Nov. 12.

Council officially extends contract with Carpere Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Carpere Canada should have paid the City of Moose Jaw $7.9 million for land purchased in the Southeast Industrial Park by today, but that deadline expired with nary a penny given. During its Oct. 28 regular meeting, council voted 6-1 to have the mayor and city clerk authorize amendments to the purchase agreements with Carpere for property in the Southeast Industrial Park by amending the closing date in each agreement to Feb. 28, 2020 from Oct. 31, 2019, and to consider any other additional amendments to the purchase agreements to make it easier to reach the Feb. 28, 2020 closing dates.

Council also voted to have the mayor and city clerk pursue the amendment agreements for both the industrial and residential lands upon review and approval of the amended agreements by the city solicitor. Coun. Brian Swanson was opposed. Council discussion The extension could offer Carpere more time to prepare for the land development process, said city clerk Myron Gulka-Tiecho. The extra time would also allow for registration of subdivisions with Information Services Corporation (ISC) and receiving the necessary approvals from the Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure.

The Southeast Industrial Park is currently just a farmer’s field but significant work — installation of water and sewer pipes — is being performed on the adjacent road, said Swanson. He thought no work was supposed to be done until a primary tenant was in place; that idea has been thrown out the window and the municipality is spending provincial and federal grant money to undertake that work. Carpere was supposed to pay $7.9 million by Oct. 31 for the 312 hectares (780 acres) it purchased based on its contractual obligations, Swanson continued. Instead, a special meeting was called on Oct. 23 so council could consider a request from the company for an extension. He recalled council having three special meetings to extend the agreement for the pea plant. “One thing we’re good at in Moose Jaw is providing extensions to contractual agreements, that really have resulted in nothing,” he said. “In the real world, if you have a contractual agreement … and you don’t (pay), there is a cost to you. I would suggest that there be a cost to Carpere.” Swanson then put forward an amendment that the contract extension only be granted upon Carpere paying an additional $100,000. He pointed out if city council received the $7.9 million, it could put that

money into the bank and start earning interest. However, waiting until February to receive that payment means Moose Jaw is losing out on extra money. “If we just give out extensions like they’re water, then what good does an agreement with Moose Jaw really mean?” he wondered. Any company could sign an agreement with the municipality and it would be OK to miss a deadline since city council would likely grant an extension without a penalty. “We should put some metal into our backbone when it comes to having agreements with third parties and indicate that extension has a cost to it,” Swanson added. Council did discuss the concerns that Swanson raised during its special meeting, but decided there should be no cost for this type of extension, said Coun. Dawn Luhning. Since the municipality has an agreement with Carpere, it would be difficult to put a price on this type of extension. Council then voted 6-1 against Swanson’s motion, followed by another 6-1 vote in favour of officially approving the extension. The next regular council meeting is Tuesday, Nov. 12.

Provincial Court

Teen remanded back into custody over alleged incident at motel Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Alleged to have caused a disturbance at the Capone Hideaway Motel, Joline Rochelle Jacques has been remanded back into custody until her next court date. Jacques, 19, appeared in Moose Jaw provincial court on Oct. 25 for the second time since police arrested her on Oct. 21. Nothing from her second appearance can be reported on since a publication was put in place. She will be back in court in late November. Some information is known about the alleged disturbance, however, due to information from the Moose Jaw Police Service. Police received a call about an alleged incident at the motel at 3:26 p.m. on Oct. 21, explained police spokesman Sgt. Kevin Pilsworth. Through an investigation, officers learned a woman was in possession of a weapon (knife) and had caused a disturbance. Police arrested her and took her into custody without incident. The woman was then charged with several offences. At one point, four marked police vehicles and one ghost car were seen surrounding the building or in the parking lot, while several officers were noticeable on the premises. Jacques has been charged with allegedly uttering a threat, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, assault with a weapon, and breach of an undertaking. Pilsworth added that no one was hurt in the incident.

Yorkton defeats Swift Current to win high school football title Raiders hold off Colts with fourth quarter surge to take 31-17 win in Yorkton Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

Things might have been a little too close for comfort at points in the second half, but in the end the final result was the same as it has been all season for the Yorkton Raiders. And with their 31-17 victory over the Swift Current Colts on Saturday in Yorkton, the Raiders are once again Saskatchewan Rural Football League champions. Quarterback Connor Watrych scored a pair of one-yard touchdowns and Val Declines ran 17 times for 165 yards as the Raiders built a 14-0 lead at half and held off a spirited third-quarter comeback by the Colts before pulling away in the final frame. Yorkton’s edge at the break was cut into by Rhett Vavra with a five-yard TD catch before a two point convert closed the score to 14-8. A rouge later in the quarter closed the score to 14-9 through three frames. Watrych restored the two-score lead in the fourth, though, and a 75-yard interception return for a touchdown by Brad Heskin sealed the deal once and for all. Austin Stewart added a 22-yard field goal in the final quarter, while Noah Bymak had Yorkton’s other major on an eightyard run in the second quarter. Karter Duclos scored the Colts’ final touchdown on a 10-yard run in the fourth quarter. The contest also acted as a provincial semifinal, with Saskatoon 5A 12-man champion Bishop Mahoney taking a 14-2 win over Regina champion Balgonie Greenall in the other semi on Saturday. Val Declines and the Yorkton Raiders won Yorkton will host Bishop Mahoney in the provincial final on Saturday, Nov. 9. the Sask Rural Football League championship on Saturday.

Estevan defeats Peacock to win Tier II football title Elecs take 29-0 win for first high school football championship Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The Estevan Elecs made Saskatchewan Rural Football League history on Saturday afternoon. With their 29-0 victory over the Peacock Tornadoes at Gutheridge Field, the Elecs became the league’s first-ever Tier II champion after the new playoff format was instituted this season. The contest also marked their first win over Peacock and first playoff shutout. It was an almost as banner a day a team could have in early November high school football. Elecs head coach Mark Schott said, “We played an excellent game today. This is definitely the best Elecs football team we’ve ever had. Our team is moving in the right direction and it’s a huge step for us. It’s been a long time coming, we were really excited with the results today and hopefully that can translate into more success going forward.” Estevan got on the board quickly, as quarterback Kaleb Bechtold hit Chase Martel with a pass that he’d take for a touchdown only 2:48 into the contest. Illia Korita hit a 23-yard field goal before the quarter was out to put the Elecs up 9-0 and set up a tense string of football heading into the half and through the third quarter.

The Estevan Elecs celebrate after winning the Sask Rural Football League Tier II title. It was in the final frame that Estevan finally pulled away, as Jacob Bachorick took a pass from Bechtold and went 82 yards for the major 30 seconds into the quarter and 1:16 later, Bechtold would dive seven yards for a touchdown to give the Elecs the 29-0 lead. “We had a bit of a lucky touchdown there to open the game and then not really much afterwards,” Schott said. “It was nice to be able to come out in the second half and put up some points and create a little bit

more separation and put the game away.” The contest marked the end of an exceptionally difficult season for Peacock, with injuries and off-field tragedies hitting the team with body blows at every corner. “It’s been a brutal year,” admitted head coach Bert Redstone. “With family deaths in the coaching staff, a kid who has his house go up in flames last night (see related story). And then all the injuries… You have a playoff game and your quarterback is out, your running back is out, your top

receiver goes out and your third best receiver isn’t here. So what do you do? It’s just real tough.” The Tornadoes never gave up, though, and even though their final record wasn’t what they’re used to, Redstone was proud of his troops for battling through it all. “We had a receiver go down in Drake [Luebke], our top guy and then the Grade 9s and 10s, we go ‘okay who wants to play’ and they all jump up,” Redstone said. “That’s really encouraging and we knew that going forward. And the message we gave today was that next year’s season starts right now, so we’ll be looking for that leadership in the future.” The Tornadoes were a decidedly young team this season, with only four Grade 12s and only one of those, offensive lineman Adrien Richard, a four-year player on the team. “He was the only one who has been with us since Grade 9,” Redstone said. “And just to hear him talk to the young o-lineman this season was amazing. Everything you could want from him you got from him. He’s the guy who goes to camps, and he tells the young guys ‘this is how you do things, it’s a grind and you have to love it’. So I couldn’t ask for more from him.”

Tornadoes football team, community rally around Bzdel family after house fire Donations, GoFundMe established in support of tragic loss Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

With everything the Peacock Tornadoes have been through this season when it came to injuries and on-field struggles, one of the hardest hits came on Friday afternoon. The team was in the midst of preparing for their Sask Rural Football League Tier II championship final the next day when family members arrived to pull defensive back Kaleb Bzdel from practice. Their family home was in flames, with fire crews on scene trying to save what they could. In the end, there was little that could be done, with a report from the Moose Jaw Police Service the next day confirming that a home on the 800 block of Hochelaga had been destroyed by fire and was a total loss. That home belonged to Cory and Shauna Bzdel and their children Kaleb and Ethan. It didn’t take long for the Peacock football and Moose Jaw dance communities – Shauna is a long-time instructor with Dance Images by BJ – to offer their support to the stricken family.

“It’s a real tragedy,” said Tornadoes head coach Bert Redstone after Saturday’s game. “The guys have really rallied around him, we’ve been gathering donations and I know there’s a GoFundMe started right now and parents are walking the crowd getting donations… We had a big huge bin to give him for clothes and we couldn’t even fit it all in the bin. “That’s the thing about the stuff away from football with this team, they were together and to see them rally around a kid like that and help pick him up, that’s really great to see.” No family members were home at the time of the blaze, but all was lost including the family’s pets. The aforementioned GoFundMe was created by Chris Jackman and saw 52 donations totaling $4,560 of a $5,000 goal in a little over a day. “You don’t know how tragic something like this is until you see it with your own two eyes,” Jackman said in the GoFundMe appeal. “Let’s build love and show support, every little bit adds up and they’ll appreciate any dona-

Warriors split weekend games with Red Deer, Prince Albert Moose Jaw posts 5-2 win over Rebels, fall 5-1 to Raiders Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The Moose Jaw Warriors’ 5-2 victory over the Red Deer Rebels in Western Hockey League action on Friday night brought about some story highlights. The first and immediate interesting storyline was the on-ice return of veteran goaltender Adam Evanoff. After missing the first month of the campaign recovering from off-season hip surgery, Evanoff dressed for his first game of the season last weekend in Saskatoon and was finally between the pipes on Friday at Mosaic Place. He would end up carrying a shut-out into the third period despite facing a steady barrage of shots and would end up making 36 saves on the night to earn the win. Then you had Brayden Tracey. The Anaheim Ducks draft pick scored four goals for the Tribe, giving him seven in the Warriors last two games. He’s moved up to 21st in league scoring with eight goals and 16 points in only eight games. And finally, Ryder Korczak. Despite playing only his second season in the WHL, the 17-year-old forward temporarily took over the league scoring lead after a four-assist night, giving him six goals, 17 assists and 23 points in only 14 games. But first things first. “It’s been a long run, so it felt good to get back in there and contribute to the team,” said Evanoff, who last played on Mar. 27 in the Warriors 4-3 season-ending playoff loss to Saskatoon. “I was definitely a little bit nervous, but once I was able to make a few stops I was able to get settled down pretty quick.” The Rebels made sure to test Evanoff as

often as possible but were unable to get a shot past him until early in the third period. Chris Douglas and Moose Jaw Minor Hockey product Jaxsen Wiebe scored for Red Deer at 2:06 and 5:47. Wiebe now has two goals and three points in 14 games this season. The game was scoreless after the first period before the Warriors scored three in the second to take a 3-0 lead. Matthew Benson scored the eventual game winner with 5:53 to play in the period. The next night against Prince Albert, things didn’t go as well. The Raiders came out of the gate absolutely blazing, outshooting the Warriors 18-3 at one point in the opening frame as they built a 3-0 lead before extending their edge to 5-0 and cruising to a 5-1 vic-

tory. Coach Tim Hunter pointed to a poor compete level right off the hop as well as a lack of solid play on the puck as being the difference in the contest. “We did some of that last night and it caught up to us, it showed in the third period,” Hunter said. “We said we couldn’t have that tonight against a better team here in P.A. and we didn’t get the message… It’s unfortunate, we slowly got better as the game went along but it’s too little too late when they’re comfortable playing with a 5-0 lead. So there are lessons to be learned, that there are no margins for error when you’re playing a good team in this league.” Aliaksei Protas scored twice and added an assist to take over the WHL scoring

lead from the Korczak with 12 goals and 26 points in 16 games. Korczak scored the lone goal for the Tribe, with his marker coming with 2:48 remaining in the contest. Brayden Watts, Spencer Moe and Evan Herman also scored for Prince Albert. Bailey Brkin got the start in goal but was pulled in favour of Adam Evanoff after the Raiders’ fourth goal. Brkin would stop 18 shots, Evanoff turned aside 12 the rest of the way. The Warriors fired 32 shots on Carter Serhyenko. Moose Jaw dropped back down to .500 and sit at 7-7-1-0 on the season, good enough for fourth place in the East Division and the second wild-card playoff spot. Prince Albert improved to 11-2-3-0 with the victory and hold down first spot in the East. The Warriors are back in action Friday, Nov. 8 when they host the Winnipeg Ice. Game time is 7 p.m. at Mosaic Place.

Brayden Tracey celebrates his first of four goals on the night.

AAA Warriors beat Argos 12-0, pour nearly 90 shots on net Victory marks second double-digit win for Moose Jaw at Notre Dame in as many games Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

When the Moose Jaw Warriors defeated,the Notre Dame Argos 14-0 in Saskatchewan Midget AAA Hockey League action a couple weeks ago, it seemed almost certain that would end up the high-water mark for their offence on the season. But there the Warriors were in Wilcox on Saturday night, leading the Argos 9-0 through two periods. And while the final score would end up 12-0 for the local squad, that wasn’t the most incredible number on the night. That came from the shot clock: 22-6 after the first. 33-8 in the second. 33-4 in the third. Note the phrase ‘in the’. Those were the shots in each period. The Warriors poured a total of 88 shots on goal, outshooting the Argos by 70 shots on the night, with Notre Dame goaltender Ian Lee turning in an incredible 76-save performance. That’s three more than Ron Tugnutt made for Quebec in the legendary 3-3 tie against Boston in 1991, the all-time NHL record for most shots in a game. “We were definitely in their end quite a bit, and in the end

The Moose Jaw Warriors had plenty of goals to celebrate in Notre Dame on Saturday night. the [shot clock] said 88, they might have been a bit happy with that, but there was a lot of rubber put on him, for sure,” said Warriors coach Trevor Weisgerber. “It’s a tough game to play. Once it gets to the third period,

we’re up 9-0, and it’s tough for both teams. I think just the way we match up with that team, they just have troubles with us and we obviously played a good game again. Some of the other teams who are playing them, the games are a lot closer. But credit to our guys, they worked hard and it was a good outcome.” Wyatt Wilson led the offensive assault with three goals and three assists, while Kyle Forster added a hat trick and Davis Fry a pair of goals. Connor McGrath, Sam Boldt, Caelan Fitzpatrick, and Evan Callaghan had single markers. Atley Calvert added three assists, Parker Jasper, Kirk Mullen and Austin Reschny had two helpers each. Every player except the goaltenders had at least one point. Chase Coward earned the shutout in net. The Warriors improved to 9-4-0-0 on the season with the win, vaulting into fourth place, two points out of second behind the Saskatoon Blazers and Prince Albert Mintos. Which is exactly who they play next weekend: the Warriors host the Blazers on Saturday, Nov. 9 at 1:30 p.m. before taking on the Mintos on Nov. 10, also at 1:30 p.m. Both games are at Mosaic Place.

Ernst, Saskatchewan win WHL Cup

AAA Warriors goaltender named tournament All-Star after stellar showing Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

When Team Saskatchewan won the WHL Cup Under-16 national hockey championship on Sunday afternoon, October 27th, there were plenty of interested observers in the Moose Jaw AAA Warriors dressing room. Not only to see their provincial team win, but also to cheer on Warriors goaltender Dylan Ernst, who had evolved into Saskatchewan’s big-game goaltender. Ernst proved to be up to the task and then some, as he turned aside 23 shots and was named a tournament all-star after Team Sask’s 4-2 win over Manitoba in the final. “I don’t know, words can’t describe what I’m feeling right now,” Ernst said on WHL.ca. “We came into this tournament as underdogs and took the championship, it’s just a great moment right now... It means so much to me, we just represented our province well, worked hard and came out with the dub.” Tye Spencer, Vaughn Watterodt, Kylynn Olafson and Eric Johnston all scored for Saskatchewan, while Tyson Zimmer and Conor Geekie had Manitoba’s goals.

Saskatchewan advanced to the final by upsetting Alberta 5-3 in the semifinal, with Ernst – a signed Kamloops Blazers prospect – stopping 27 shots in the win.

Playoff set in high school volleyball

Quarter-finals set for Tuesday after Vanier clinches first place in boys, Peacock top spot in girls Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The Vanier Vikings and Peacock Toilers clinched first place in the regular-season high school volleyball standings on Tuesday night, November 2nd and with the playoffs on the horizon, both did so in comfortable fashion. The Vikings finished with a perfect 9-0 record and didn’t drop more than a single set after their opening-night fivegame bruiser with the Avonlea Eagles. They closed out the season in style against Cornerstone Christian School, who with a win would have moved into second place all alone. Instead, Vanier would roll to a 3-0 (25-19, 25-17, 27-25) victory, pushing the Falcons into a 5-4 logjam that saw them in fourth place once tiebreakers were applied. The Eagles, meanwhile, had held down second place much of the season and it was there that they’d finish after a 3-0 (25-22, 25-21, 25-23) victory over the Central Cyclones. Both teams finished 5-4 with the result, with Central landing in third place. The other contest on the night had no playoff implications but was important nonetheless as the Peacock Toilers picked up their first win and finished 1-7 with a 3-0 (25-21, 25-12, 25-22) victory over the Riverview/Mort-

lach Royals (0-8). In girls play, the Toilers’ steady progression through the season saw them defeat defending champion Vanier in early October before closing out their campaign with a 3-0 (25-20, 25-19, 25-12) win over Central (1-7). The Spirits, meanwhile, kept pace and also finished at 7-1 with a 3-1 (25-15, 16-25, 25-17, 25-13) win over Briercrest Christian Academy (4-4). The tiebreaker gave first place to the Toilers. That sets the stage for the post season beginning Tuesday with the quarter-finals. Action gets underway at 6:20 p.m. in girls play with Cornerstone (4) at Central (5) before the slate of boys games takes centre stage at 8 p.m. as Avonlea (2) takes on Riverview / Mortlach (7), Peacock (6) is at Central (3) and Briercrest Christian (5) is at Cornerstone (4). Playoffs continue Thursday as the girls quarter-final winner faces Peacock and Briercrest duels Vanier in the other semifinal, while in boys action the lowest remaining seed battles Vanier and the two remaining quarter-final teams play in the other semifinal.

The Peacock Toilers clinched first place in the regular season with a win on Tuesday, Oct.

Barker wins Regina Highland Sask Curling Tour tournament Event gives former provincial Scotties champion valuable points towards return to provincials Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

Penny Barker and her Moose Jaw Ford Curling Centre foursome are one step closer to landing a spot in the Viterra Scotties provincial women’s championship. Barker and her rink of third Deanna Doig, second Christie Gamble and lead Danielle Sicinski defeated the Sherry Anderson foursome in the final of the Regina Highland stop on the Saskatchewan Women’s Curling Tour the weekend of October 26/27. The win gives Barker valuable points toward the SWCT standings, which will see both the champion and runner up in the final point standings land berths in the Scotties provincials in Melville Jan. 24-28. That tournament carries even more weight than usual with the Scotties Tournament of Hearts national championship set to take place in Moose Jaw beginning Feb. 15 at Mosaic Place. Barker got off to a less than ideal start against Anderson in the final, giving up three in the first end. The Regina rink was skipped by longtime provin-

cial curling standout Patty Hersikorn as Anderson attended the funeral for Aly Jenkins. Barker got on the board with single points in the second and third ends and after the Anderson got back on the board with one in the fourth, would hold her opponents scoreless the rest of the way. The 2017 Scotties provincial champion pulled to within one with one in the fifth and took the lead the very next end with a steal of two. Hersikorn chose to bank the seventh, but Barker would steal one in the final end to secure the win. Barker had posted a 2-1 record through the round robin and would defeat Saskatoon’s Jessica Mitchell 7-2 in the quarter-final before overcoming a 6-2 deficit and scoring six points over the final three ends to down Michelle Englot 8-6 in the semifinal. The Sask Women’s Curling Tour continues this past weekend with the Saskatoon Nutana event, where the winner will earn a direct berth into provincials. The Moose Jaw Ford Curling Centre will host the final SWCT spiel on the Nov. 29 weekend.

PHA Elite 15s post 1-2 record in trio of close games at Hounds Showcase Cougars defeat powerhouse Northern Alberta, lose one-goal games to Edge, OHA Edmonton Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

HOCKEY ACADEMY

The Prairie Hockey Academy Cougars have shown through the first month of the Canadian Sport School Hockey League Elite 15 season that they are a team to contend with.

This past weekend during the Notre Dame Hounds Showcase tournament in Wilcox, the Cougars opened with a 3-1 win over Elite 15 powerhouse Northern Alberta before falling 2-1 to Edge School for Athletes and dropping a 3-2 decision to OHA Edmonton. PHA now holds a 7-5-1-0 record, good enough for third place, three points behind Northern Alberta and Burnaby Winter Club in first. Cougars 3, Northern Alberta 1 PHA proved plenty opportunistic in their showcase-opening win, taking a 2-0 lead out of the first period and leading 3-1 through two despite being outshot 48-21 in the game. Jackson Allan and Carter Wickenheiser each had a goal and an assist, while Cade

Kennedy added the Cougars’ other marker. Bodee Weiss was exceptionally solid in goal with a 47-save performance. Edge 2, Cougars 1 Neither team appeared to have much interest in playing at even strength, as PHA would go 0-for-10 on the power play while giving up a shorthanded goal and Edge would go 1-for-9 with the man advantage, with their lone marker standing as the game-winner. All the scoring came in the first period, with Edge taking a 2-0 lead before McLaren Paulsen scored with 1:44 to play in the frame. Dazza Mitchell made 31 saves in the close loss. OHA 3, Cougars 2

Edmonton took a 2-0 lead into the third period, but Wickenheiser and Tate Schofer scored a minute apart midway through the third to tie the game 2-2. Alex Mack would score the game winner for OHA with 4:51 to play. Weiss had 34 saves in goal. The Elite 15s are back in action during the Nov. 9 weekend when they host Northern Alberta for a pair of games at Barkman Arena. Game times are 7 p.m. on Saturday and 10 a.m. on Sunday. The Midget Varsity Cougars had the weekend off from CSSHL play and are also on the ice at home this weekend, with a trio of games against International Hockey Academy. Game times are 7 p.m. on Friday, 10 a.m. Saturday and 4 p.m. Sunday.

Former Moose Jaw, current Estevan skip overcomes 4-0 deficit to defeat Kendel 9-6 in final Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The championship final of the Sask Men’s Curling Tour Moose Jaw tournament featured so many former junior provincial champions that the two rinks alone could likely have filled the wall of banners in the Moose Jaw Ford Curling Centre all by themselves. First, you had the Brent Gedak rink out of Estevan. The former Moose Jaw competitor won the provincial junior title with Brock Montgomery in 2000 out of the Hillcrest Sports Centre. One of his teammates that season was current second and Moose Jaw native Derek Owens, who also claimed provincial junior gold with Steven Scott the previous season. Current third Jason Ackerman was also a member of the Scott team. And then you had the Brady Kendel and his Saskatoon foursome. Between himself, third Jacob Hersikorn, second Quinn Hersikorn and lead Brandon Leippi, there were five straight provincial titles from 2012 to 2016, with four of those banners belonging to Kendel and Leippi on various teams. So with that much skill on the ice, it stood to reason it would be a close and competitive game, which is exactly what happened. Gedak found himself trailing Kendel 4-0 through two ends and 6-3 at the fifth-end break, but a four-spot in the sixth end would suddenly give him the lead. They followed with a nearly perfectly played seventh clinched a 9-6 win. “Early in the game I struggled with some draw weight, but the team hung around all game and battled back, they were making all their shots, so they just had some faith that I’d come back and make some shots,” said Gedak,

spot in the title game. While the Moose Jaw tournament didn’t offer a direct berth into the Tankard, it did provide valuable SCT points and virtually guaranteed a spot in the provincial men’s championship with the win. “Getting 10 points here and getting a lead on the rest of the province is good as far as points go,” Gedak said. “We’re happy with that and that’s why we were here.” Kendel also went undefeated until the final, with an 8-1 win over former Moose Jaw competitor Carson Ackerman, 7-3 win over Regina’s Sam Wills in his ‘A’ semifinal and 6-2 defeat of Travis Tokarz in the ‘A’ final. He followed with a 5-3 win over Wills in the championship semifinal. Curtis Horworth and Derek Owens sweep as Brent Gedak watches the line. who had Curtis Horworth at lead. “We’ve always played well here; this is Derek’s club so we’re used to it and he helps me out with some the ice calls and stuff. We like coming here, it’s handy for all four of us being from around this area. We got up early in every game except this one, which makes a difference.” Gedak went undefeated through the weekend, defeating three-time defending provincial junior champion Rylan Kleiter of Saskatoon in their opener before defeating Estevan’s Shawn Meyer 4-2 in the ‘A’ semifinal and rolling to a 10-0 win over Jason Jacobson in the ‘A’ final. That sent him straight to the championship round semi, where he took a 7-1 win over Shane Vollman to earn his

On the Front Porch by Wanda Smith A Bad Rap

Last week, we talked about not blaming God for the bad that goes on in our lives and in our world. I ended the column with the good news that He has given us the keys to a future and a hope. You might think that sounds great but wonder how that works when everything is falling apart around you. Or you look at the condition of the world and worry about what is happening to it across the globe. Our enemy was given legal access into this earth realm when Adam and Eve sinned. They had everything they ever needed at their finger tips but gave it up when Eve was deceived and when Adam did not step in and take his role as protector. It is dangerous when we brand God as being a mean god sitting in heaven with a big baseball bat standing ready to bop us when we do something wrong. Another traditional teaching is that He gives us sickness or hardship to teach us something. Satan has done a great deal convincing us that God brings disaster, calamity, sickness or disease to bring something good out of it. That thought is absolutely wrong. So the question usually comes... why does God allow bad things to happen? The answer is: Satan has legal right to be on this earth because Adam and Eve sinned. He is the prince of the power of the air. The Word of God says in 1 Peter 5:8 “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.” He is a deceiver, a liar, a manipulator, a con, a thief, a killer and so much more. He will do whatever he can to steal, kill and destroy our lives. (John 10:10) It’s time we turned the tables on him and expose him for who he is. God has taken the bad rap for the evil the devil brings. The good news is that God has given us Jesus’ name and that every time the devil messes with us, we can use that name and the authority God has given us to take the devil out. We can take back what belongs to us! Jesus bought and paid for our freedom with his life on the cross. He took every sin, sickness and disease on himself so that we would not have to bare that curse. He rose, victorious, over death, hell and the grave. That is why today, we can live in victory, peace, blessing, protection, provision, and more. John 10:10 says, “The thief approaches with malicious intent, looking to steal, slaughter and destroy; I came to give life with joy and abundance.” This encourages us that God only desires to bring blessing into our lives. As I mentioned last week, there are over 7000 promises we can receive as our very own. If you were the only one on this earth, Jesus would have gone to the cross for you! 2 Peter 1:3 shows us: “His divine power has bestowed on us [absolutely] everything necessary for [a dynamic spiritual] life and godliness, through true and personal knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence.” He has given us everything necessary to live out our destiny! Jeremiah 29:11 assures us,”’ For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.’” God is a good God! Look for His goodness in your life. The views and opinions expressed in this article are those of the author, and do not necessarily reflect the position of this publication.

- A Long Life Well Lived MAURICE LOUIS (Mo) VEILLARD March 18, 1926 – November 3, 2019 Maurice was pre-deceased by his parents Angele and Louis Veillard; his sisters and brothers-in-law Helen and Louis Godin, Yvonne and Roland Alain, and Therese and Art Lamontagne; his granddaughter Louise Veillard, and of course many of his friends and peers. He will be missed by his wife of 70 years Maxine, children Valerie (Bob Eaton), Greg (Pam Sargent), Mo (Colleen Rudd), Colette (Dave Krawczyk) and Nolin (Holly), eleven grandchildren and nine greatgrandchildren, Maxine’s brothers Bruce (Marg) Griffiths and Gerry (Grace) Griffiths. Dad leaves a legacy of love and laughter. He laughed a lot and made others laugh a lot. He was legendary for his unique sense of humor. His ability to remember jokes and draw on them (frequently) in a timely fashion was an incredible gift. He was always remembered by those who met him! As a younger man, Dad worked in a variety of jobs, including being a grain buyer and railway employee, followed by several years as a traveling salesman. He and Mom became best known for the stores they ran together: “Mo and Mac’s” Caribou Grocery in Moose Jaw and Mo and Mac’s Red and White in Hawarden. Working together for 25 years, they were an awesome team. They then enjoyed a 25 year retirement back in Moose Jaw. The family would like to extend a heartfelt thanks to Home Care and Hospital personnel, and to the staff at Pioneers Lodge for their compassionate care in recent months. A Celebration of Life will be held at Moose Jaw Funeral Home (268 Mulberry Lane) on Sunday, November 10, 2019 at 1:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made in Maurice’s name to “Canadian Tire Jumpstart” (helping financially disadvantaged youth participate in sport and recreation). *FORMS will be available at the Celebration of Life Service, the Kinsmen Sportsplex, or City of Moose Jaw Parks and Recreation Department. Those wishing to do so may send messages to the family through the Moose Jaw Funeral Home Memorial Register.

In Memory Of

Sarah HENRY Sarah Henry (nee Peters) passed away October 26 at age 92. She was a resident of Cypress House, Swift Current, and a former resident of Moose Jaw and Shamrock. Sarah was born near Kelstern, SK, in 1927, five months after her parents and three older siblings emigrated from south Russia. She grew up on the farm and moved to Shamrock in 1944 when her father purchased the general store. She married Edwin ‘Ebbie’ Henry in 1950. They raised their family of six in Shamrock. They retired to Moose Jaw in 1998. Ebbie passed away in 2016 and Sarah moved to Swift Current in 2018. Sarah will be lovingly remembered and missed by her children: John (Beryl) of Regina; Marilyn (Brian) Wirsche of Hodgeville; Hugh (Linda) of Swift Current; Gord (Sally) of Lloydminster; Shelley (Brian Harvey) of Bournemouth, U.K.; Dale (Roxanne) of Meadow Lake; as well as her twelve grandchildren and fifteen great-grandchildren. Sarah also leaves to mourn: sisters, Susan Stoesz, Winnipeg; Tina Reimer (Emil), Steinbach; brothers, Henry, St. Albert; John (Virginia), Kelowna; David, Vancouver; sister-in-law, Ruth Henry, Toronto; and numerous nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her parents, Julius and Sara (Enns) Peters; brothers, Jake, Julius, Peter (in infancy) and Ben; sister, Anne Fox; and numerous in-laws, cousins, nieces and nephews. The funeral service for Sarah Henry was held on Friday, November 1, 2019, 2:00 p.m., at Shamrock Community Hall. It was led by Rev. Janelle Shaw. Interment followed in Shamrock Cemetery. The family gratefully acknowledges the thoughtfulness and dedicated care provided by staff at Cypress House, Dr. Bakare and Cypress Regional Hospital. Thanks also, for the many expressions of sympathy extended to the family.

LYSTER Margaret Lyster, aged 91 years of Moose Jaw, SK passed away peacefully on Thursday, October 31st, 2019 with her family by her side. Marg was born in Moose Jaw on June 3rd, 1928 to Nick and Lena Meronick. After receiving her education in Moose Jaw, her first job was with Robin Hood Mills. Marg and her husband Bob owned Automotive Machine and Supply, as well as the Matador Inn where she also worked. She later moved to a finance position with the Moose Jaw Police Service and retired after 16 years. Marg loved her Buffalo Pound Lake home where she and Bob entertained family and friends throughout the years. She had many fond memories of Christmas and New Year’s spent at the lake. Marg loved music, gardening and flowers. She enjoyed her bus tours south with Las Vegas being her favourite. Marg loved her monthly “girlie” party with her friends Gerry, Thelma, Helen and Marj. Marg’s life revolved around family and friends, which meant everything to her. She was a devoted, caring, very generous and kind person. She was predeceased by her husband, Bob Lyster; sister and brother-inlaw, Alice and Wrally Konopaki. Marg is survived by her daughters, Barbara (Dennis) Darroch and Lori (Mac) Anderson; grandchildren: Jana (Jeff) Fox, Mark (Coral) Darroch, Christa (Aaron) Anderson, and Sarah (Lee) Anderson; great-grandchildren: Brayden, Alaina, Brooklyn, Ryder and Rustin; and special nephews, Rodney (Susan) Konopaki and Fred (Jen) Konopaki along with their families. The family wishes to thank Drs. Marx, Sanderson and Hassan, as well as the very caring staff at Extendicare and Moose Jaw Homecare. Thank you Marg for the warmth and love you shared with your family and friends. Till we meet again! In keeping with Marg’s wishes, a Private Family Service will be held in her honour. As an expression of sympathy, donations in Marg’s name may be made to a charity of one’s choice. Arrangements are entrusted to Moose Jaw Funeral Home, 268 Mulberry Lane.

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 a town hall meeting open to the public, the Government of Saskatchewan announced its plans to open a public, competitive request for proposals period regarding the now-empty Valley View Centre and land surrounding it. The property, currently owned by the Ministry of Central Services, occupies about 200 acres on the south end of Moose Jaw, within city limits, and houses 23 buildings. The Ministry has divided the land into four parcels, available for tenders during the upcoming RPF process. Following the standard process of evaluating a surplus property that is no longer required for programming, the land was appraised, and municipal authorities were contacted about their potential interest. The City of Moose Jaw expressed no interest in purchasing the land, and the Wakamow Valley Authority requested consideration for only the 30-acre portion on the western side of the property, which they currently lease for their natural trails. RFPs will be accepted from developers beginning Nov. 13 until Dec. 11 of this year, after which the evaluation process of submitted bids will begin. In the case of no submitted RFPs, the Ministry will then R considerTondevold other options — selling the buildings indiTwyla TE IN ICE process for contractors vidually or beginning anWRFP REALTOR Ž PR to demolish the buildings and sell the remaining land. Residential, Farm Only RFPs that meet or exceed the appraised market 306 631-6895
