Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Moose Jaw Families for Change (MJFFC) and Running Wild Rescue are teaming up to offer an adult comedy and magic show to help raise funds for the animal rescue organization. Comedian and magician Chris Edwards will entertain the masses on Friday, March 13 at 7 p.m. The show takes place at the Kinsmen Café at 431 Fourth Avenue Southwest. Tickets are $20, but since they are limited, only a few are left to purchase at the Kinsmen Café. This show is only for people over age 19 since there will be alcohol served and adult themes joked about. Running Wild Rescue reached out to MJFFC about hosting the event as part of a cross-promotional activity, explained Katie Statler, community co-ordinator for MJFFC. Families for Change has worked with the rescue organization in the past through good deeds and volunteerism. As a non-profit organization, most money comes from fundraising activities and initiatives, she continued. Running Wild Rescue offers several services to the community, including rescuing and boarding animals, and daycare, so funding is always important. The animal rescue organization reached out to Edwards — known for his shows for kids and all ages — to perform, Statler said. Edwards has also performed for clients with Families for Change, so the thinking was he would be a good entertainer for both groups. “It’s good (to perform for both groups). I’m an animal lover myself, so it’s always nice to kind of help out with organizations like this in any way I can … ,” Edwards said. “I’m happy to do it.” The Moose Javian has performed on and off during the past 10 years, but has done it mainly full-time the last three years, he explained. His main objective is to give people the opportunity to “let loose,” make them laugh and smile, and take their minds off the everyday issues they face. Most shows Edwards has done during the last few years have been geared toward kids and all-ages crowds. However, he started doing more adult-focused shows in 2019. With the March 13 show, he noted it will be a rated R show since it will have adult themes and topics unsuitable for kids. “I think people should come out because it’s certainly a unique event,” said Statler. “This is not something you see offered in the community. And this is also a great way to become familiar with both our organization and with Running

Upcoming Skating Club ice show featuring chart-topping music as theme Larissa Kurz

The Moose Jaw Skating Club is hard at work perfecting their moves for the upcoming ice show on Mar. 15, which coach Bree Campbell says will be backed by some recognizable music. This year’s theme is “The Best of the Best,” with each number choreographed to a famous, chart-topping hit from sometime in the last few decades to pique the interest of the crowd and skaters alike. “I’m always trying to outdo previous shows that we’ve done and keep things fresh and exciting and keep the skaters engaged,” said Campbell. “So, [this year] we wanted to feature music that the skaters were familiar with and that the audience would be familiar with.” Organizers have chosen a range of music, from Elvis Presley to Lady Gaga, and skaters are all taking part in a variety of

numbers this year. The Club puts a lot of effort into the production each year, and the end goal is always to put on a show that’s enjoyable to everyone in the stands — the skaters, their family, and anyone who decides to stop in for the entertainment. “We put a lot of effort into choreographing, putting the numbers together and our props and how we lay it out, to make it feel like a big production,” said Campbell. “We really try to make it appealing to all public members, even if they’re not a member of our club.” The ice show is a final performance for the club, for skaters of all ages to show off the skills they’ve been working hard to perfect all year long. It also offers a unique chance to perform in a new arena from their usual place of practice.

It’s such an amazing facility and it makes it extra special for our skaters [to be] able to put on our show in a big beautiful rink with all the perks, the lights and the sound system,” said Campbell. It’s always a highlight for the skaters, who get excited about the theme usually before

it’s even chosen each year. “It’s a great opportunity for our skaters to showcase what they’ve been working on and accomplished throughout the year and everybody really looks forward to it,” said Campbell. “Its lots of fun coming up with the idea and keeping it a secret from everybody and then having a big reveal.” The ice show will take place at 2 p.m. on Mar. 15, and tickets are $15 for adults, $10 for kids aged 6 and up, and kids under 5 are free. Tickets for the show can be purchased at moosejawskatingclub.ca, from club members at any of the ice show practices leading up to the show — the schedule for which can be found on the website — or by messaging the club on Facebook, as well as at the doors on the day of the show.

Theatre play focuses on homophobia, bullying issues among teens Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express A theatre play that focuses on homophobia and bullying is attempting to communicate to students that their words can harm other youths and even lead to selfharm and suicide. Outside is a drama produced by Ontario-based Roseneath Theatre and sponsored by the Organization of Saskatchewan Arts Councils (OSAC). The production is travelling through the province from March 2 to 9, with four shows in Moose Jaw from March 5 and 6. Students from throughout Prairie South School Division were bussed in to attend the show. The play focuses on Daniel, a teen who triumphs over homophobic bullying, depression and suicide. The teen shares his story during a meeting of a Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) at his new school. Meanwhile, at his old school, Daniel’s two friends attempt to start their own GSA while struggling with what happened to their friend. Using flashbacks, viewers travel through Daniel’s experience of bullying that be-

gan with a taunt and a text message, and eventually, led to a physical assault. “All too often, we see people posting things on people’s timelines (and) making memes about other people, and I don’t think that a lot of us understand the implications or impact that can have on someone else,” said Andrew Lamb, play director and artistic director for Roseneath. By seeing the bullying, name-calling, and fact that Daniel’s situation doesn’t improve even with support, Lamb hoped students realize that situations might not improve right away or even while in school. While they may continue to face challenges, they should understand there is help in the community — whether speaking with a trusted adult or peer — or even by calling the Kids’ Help Phone. Outside has toured Ontario since 2015 and visited more than 150 schools, but this was the first year it visited Saskatchewan. Daniel’s story is likely something with which many students are familiar, since he is bullied in person, online, and by 20032TS0 20032TS1

text for being different, said Lamb. The production shows the emotional damage this causes the teen and how it affects his mental health. However, viewers are also able to see the effort to create a GSA at Daniel’s former school. “There’s been a movement for GayStraight Alliance clubs in middle schools and high schools across Canada for better part of a decade now,” Lamb continued. “These create safe spaces (not only) for queer kids, but for allies to say to those queer kids, ‘We support you; we won’t be bystanders; we’ll speak up when we see you being bullied for this reason because we want our school to be a safe space.’” Playwright Paul Dunn created the play around 2011 when news reports said some youths were depressed and attempting suicide. He saw the need to address this issue and created Outside While it’s not based on a true story, it does have elements of real life. Lamb thought an interesting part of the play can see the trajectory Daniel’s character takes and how the actors take the idea of depression as far as possible. At the end of the performance, Daniel admits it was wrong to hurt himself. After the show finishes, the actors speak

The Kids’ Help Phone is promoted as a helpful tool for students to use; it has begun communicating with youths through text messages. “It has been a show I’ve always thought that it might fall out of our rotation, but due to demand, we’ve had to tour this pretty much every season since it started,” Lamb added, “so it’s become one of our staple productions that we have on the road every season.”

Although International Women’s Day was held on March 8, Moose Jaw began the celebration early with a free brunch on Mar. 1 to begin the conversation about the importance of women and their achievements. Organizer Isabella Grajczyk was excited to offer the free event to the community, welcoming anyone interested in celebrating the national day to recognize women to attend entirely free of charge, thanks to a grant from Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award and the Canada Service Corps. “I’m really happy with it. I was a little bit nervous, but we had a really good turnout and I think everyone enjoyed it, so I think it went really good,” said Grajczyk. The catered brunch brought together women of all ages for an impressive meal, a presentation from guest speaker Christine Boyczuck, and plenty of donation door prizes from local businesses in the city. “I wanted it to be accessible to everyone,” said Grajzyck. “[So] I really liked the range of people that we were able to come here. It’s really nice to see and it makes it feel more well-rounded.” Graczyk planned the event after a conference in Halifax about event planning and decided to bring that knowledge back to Moose Jaw in a meaningful way. “The people that I met there really inspired me and I thought this would be kind of a fun thing to bring to

Isabella Grajzyck had help from her family — (L-R) Sophie Grajzyck, Jeff Grajzyck, Carolyn Korte, Isabella, and Joey Linnes — in organizing the event.

Speaker Christine Boyczuck spoke about the importance of accepting individuality and supporting other women during her speech. Moose Jaw and to get the community involved,” said Grajzcyk. Boyczuck gave a speech highlighting the importance of women supporting women and cultivating positive relationships to encourage success for everyone, which really embodied the soul of International Women’s Day. ”This is what we celebrate, all of the beautiful women here and the beautiful strengths they have. We’re all different, but we’re always worth celebrating,” said Boyczuck in her presentation. “My humble opinion is that the diversity among us should be celebrated and embraced, and not just tolerated.” That message really encompassed what was also important for Grajzyck, in bringing together a group of local women to celebrate International Women’s Day felt important for the community. “I think it’s just important to kind of lift each other up and create those connections and those bonds when you can, because it can be so easy with day-to-day life just to get distracted and just concern yourself so much with yourself,” said Grajczyk. She aimed to create a positive space for women to enjoy the event together, and brunch-goers certainly agreed on her success. “If you bring the community together, you can just have a nice time where everyone’s enjoying free food together and free prizes,” said Grajzyck. “And that’s a nice atmosphere I wanted to build because I think that’s really important.”

Just sitting here musing over some recent circumstances that again seem to paint City Hall’s decisions in an unfavourable light. Although the City of Moose Jaw and Carpere deal was on-going with extensions that didn’t cost Carpere a cent but cost Moose Jaw Joan Ritchie a pretty penny, just this past EDITOR week Moose Jaw City Council tried to squeak a news release under the radar stating very briefly that the deal did not meet requirements and is done with no explanation of particulars. The City of Moose Jaw again took a dive into a bigger deficit after all the money they have already spent on upgrades to the industrial property expected to be purchased, not to mention all of the money spent by City Hall in courting this deal. And now, Moose Jaw sits with a deal gone sour; pretty unsettling for those who were led to believe this was almost a surety. In the onset of this deal, the mayor patted himself on the back for he and city hall liaising the so-called “biggest land deal in Moose Jaw’s history…” and now it seems to be not a big deal; in fact, NO DEAL AT ALL! But of course, he did mention that the community should not disregard the previous deals that have been made during his tenure, seemingly touting them as ‘a feather in his cap,’ as well as saying there was at least a billion dollars in deals already made besides this one on the table….a pretty grandiose number put out by him but we are awaiting a detailed and itemized list from the City of Moose Jaw to prove it and will keep you posted. On another vein, let’s take a look at Moose Jaw’s economy, Saskatchewan’s economy, the nation’s economy and the world’s in light of the Corvid 19 virus. UNCERTAIN. Stocks sure took a dive recently, rebounded slightly but this health crisis is impacting coffers all over the world in UNCERTAINTY. I wonder in what situation Moose Jaw’s coffers are presently after investing a large portion in ‘gambling’ on the stock market as a seemingly ‘good idea’ with pie-in-the-sky expectations. It seems like there is very poor money management at city hall that defies logic and deals that go awry because of decision made with very little business sense.

Scotties provided needed economic injection into community Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

February is usually a quiet month for businesses, restaurants and hotels in Moose Jaw, but the Scotties Tournament of Hearts proved to be an economic blessing for the community. For 10 days, 59,298 curling fans from across Canada watched Canada’s finest female curlers battle for a national title. Parking spots were nearly impossible to find around Mosaic Place, while there were more people walking the streets during an unusually balmy and sunny month. Those thousands of fans, along with the curlers, coaches, officials, media and TV crews, needed places to eat, sleep, and shop, amenities that Moose Jaw provided in spades. According to Curling Canada, the community could have experienced an economic injection of $6 million to $10 million. Scotties’ co-chair Heather Eby thought the tournament could have generated a minimum of $8 million. “I was told by one local business that the business community in Moose Jaw really needed this right now and (so) they’re feeling encouraged again,” she added. Statistics from the Canadian Sport Tourism Alliance show Curling Canada booked 1,500 room nights for the 16 teams, its staff, and officials. Chamber of commerce It’s awesome to think that up to $10 million could have been injected into the economy, said Rob Clark, CEO of the Moose Jaw and District Chamber of Commerce. The additional money will allow businesses to purchase summer inventory earlier and hire earlier too. Not only do businesses benefit, but so do the employees, especially those who work at Mosaic Place, he continued. Normally they might work part-time at the Warriors’ games. However, after working 10 days full-time, they likely took home a big paycheque. The fact TSN showed different parts of the community on national TV probably had another positive effect too. “I don’t know that you could put a number on that,” Clark said. “That would be pretty massive as well.” The community engagement was reflected in the many businesses that decorated their windows, something Clark couldn’t recall seeing as much of in 2015. This year 16 restaurants were also the host locations for each of the teams, some of whom visited and engaged with fans. “Overall, it was an amazing success,” Clark added. “Everything seemed to go right. It was a great event and the community should be proud of (itself).” Toilet paper style Cranberry Collective, a shop that’s been open for nine months, took second place in a contest among businesses to see which could decorate their frontage the best. Owner Christine Keck decorated a mannequin using 12 rolls of toilet paper, something many customers enjoyed seeing. Keck received inspiration from her aunt, who is a big curler and curling fan. It took Keck a few hours to put together the design. “It was a fun window display,” she said. The Scotties also helped the business financially, since the past two months have been “crappy,” Keck added. It was nice to have an event bring so many people to town. Whole lotta Rosie Restaurant Rosie’s on River Street is straight down the block from Mosaic Place, so the Scotties had an awesome economic effect on the business, especially since Februarys in Moose Jaw are quieter, said owner Zach Schutte. He and others expected they would be full every day; they were not disappointed. Rosie’s hired more staff — early summer hires — to meet the expected demand, while it also stayed open later and opened earlier on Sundays to catch the rush.

“It was great to be part of that,” added Schutte. Hotels booked solid It was a great 10 days for hotels and an enormous boost economically, said David Wood, chair of Visit Moose Jaw and senior manager with the Temple Gardens Hotel and Spa. More than 1,000 people who attended the tournament to either watch or compete needed places to stay, but Moose Jaw had only 800 hotel rooms, so there was spillover into Regina, Wood added. This would likely translate into 8,000 room nights booked for the event. “Hotel occupancy’s very, very low so far this year throughout the City of Moose Jaw, so definitely a lot of the hotels desperately needed a good week to make up for some tough weeks we’ve had,” he added. No Nit-picking here The Scotties benefitted other businesses such as Nit’s Thai Food and Déjà Vu. Nit’s co-owner Ning Yuchalern welcomed the economic infusion, noting it was easy to tell when games were on since more people were walking the streets. The restaurant saw double the amount of traffic it normally receives, which made for busy lunches and suppers, Yuchalern added. Even curling superfan Hans Madsen from Yorkton stopped by. Meanwhile, the biggest change for Déjà Vu was it opened on the Family Day holiday — it’s normally closed on stat holidays — after receiving so many inquiries from customers, said owner Brandon Richardson. “We decided at 4:30 p.m. on Sunday that we’d open with little to no advanced (advertising) … ,” he added. “It was an amazing day.”

Campaign underway to have Tommy Douglas chosen for $5 bill Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

While Tommy Douglas was named the greatest Canadian in a national contest in 2004, efforts are now underway to have the so-called “Father of Medicare” enshrined on the $5 bill. The Bank of Canada recently announced it was holding a contest to find a new image for the blue-coloured piece of money; Sir Wilfred Laurier is the current face on the bill. Douglas is one of more than 300 Canadians who has been submitted for consideration. To ensure Douglas is the winner, Robin Murray and Rob Woznow, from Powell River, British Columbia, have started a campaign to encourage Canadians to vote for the former Saskatchewan premier and Member of Parliament. They started a website — www.tommydouglasfornewcanadianfivedollarbill.ca — and also a Facebook page. The two men were talking last summer about the many Canadians who have done interesting things for the country, Murray explained by phone. However, their conversation kept coming back to Douglas and his accomplishments, especially with Medicare, along with just how progressive he was for his time. Among other things, he helped advanced social democracy, he introduced a bill of rights in Saskatchewan, and he brought electricity, water and sewer to many parts of the province. These were some things that impressed Murray and Woznow.

Tommy Douglas was premier of Saskatchewan from July 10, 1944 to Nov. 7, 1961. Photo submitted “He was (simply) honest and cared about people,” added Murray, originally from Ogema, Sask. A few weeks after their conversation, Woznow suggested they should attempt to have Douglas put on a Canadian bill. They then looked at what the process had been when the $10 bill was changed. Much to their delight, in January the Bank of Canada announced a new process would take place to change the $5 bill. They immediately put together a website and social media page. The Saskatchewan government intro-

duced medicare for everyone in 1962, with the federal government following suite in 1966. On their website, Woznow and Murray point out Douglas’ belief in the importance of universal medical care has saved millions of Canadians from having to choose between their homes and their life. Right now the Democrats in the United States are attempting to choose who will

represent them in the November presidential election, Murray said during the phone call. Candidate Bernie Sanders is “trying to drag the Americans into the 20th century” with medicare for everyone. “Watching him give his speeches on medicare for all and caring for people, it just kind of reminds me of the speeches Tommy Douglas used to do,” Murray continued, “to try to make life better for everyday Canadians.” The crusade to have Douglas enshrined on the $5 bill is not necessarily a way to contrast the Canadian and American health-care systems, said Murray. Instead, he and Woznow are attempting to point out how lucky all Canadians are to be able to go to a doctor or visit a hospital and not face massive medical bills. Murray was 16 in 1983 when he broke his hip after hitting a tree while skiing in British Columbia. He was in the hospital for two weeks with a fracture but didn’t need major surgery. Not once, he added, did either he or his family ever worry about having to pay a bill while in the hospital. The deadline to vote for Tommy Douglas is on March 11.

I recently read an online blog from an individual who decided to take cold showers every day for a year. His experiment involved replacing his normally hot showers with ice by Dr. Steven cold ones. It had nothing Heidinger, Moose to do with the pores in his Jaw Chiropractor skin, wanting an increased metabolism, or dousing his libido. Apparently, he did it because he wanted to increase his tolerance to pain and other uncomfortable situations. His theory was that by making himself uncomfortable everyday with the cold shower, he would increase his tolerance to other things in life that may be difficult. There are many scientists who believe pain to have a psychosocial component. This makes complete sense, in that a person’s state of mind will influence how they rate their pain on a pain scale. Pain tolerance can differ depending on personal circumstances and pain thresholds can differ from one person to another. With respect to cold showers, the stress of that discomfort on a regular basis improves the body’s anti-oxidative adaption. This not only improves mental resilience, but also strengthens the immune system. While there are studies showing that taking ice cold showers can increase emotional resilience, lower stress and increase one’s pain tolerance, there are other ways you can accomplish these goals without a daily dose of cold water pelting and stinging your skin. Exercise seems to be a prescription for most problems, and it is no different for pain. Physical activity, particularly aerobic activity, positively affects pain perception. Yoga has also been shown to improve one’s experience of pain. The combination of the physical component of yoga activity improving pain tolerance and the mental aspects of yoga helping the brain to better process the psychosocial aspect of pain, shows that for some, yoga is a viable alternative to pain medications. Toss the cigarettes. Apparently, smokers have lower tolerance to pain. If you are diabetic, manage your blood sugars better. Diabetics are prone to nerve damage, increasing their pain sensitivity. Better manage anxiety and stress. Unresolved issues, past and present, can decrease one’s pain tolerance. While the benefits of a cold shower intrigue me, I am not ready for a year of experiencing the equivalent of the polar bear plunge in my own bathroom. Maybe I’ll just start with lukewarm and go from there.

MacKenzie Porter coming to Moose Jaw on tour with Brad Paisley Larissa Kurz When Brad Paisley and his world tour makes their way to Moose Jaw on Mar. 12, he will be bringing Canadian singer-songwriter MacKenzie Porter with him — and she’s really looking forward to the tour. “I can’t wait. I know that y’all have like big country fans there, so I know it’s going to be a wild, crazy party,” said Porter. Porter will be joining Paisley for several dates of his upcoming tour, taking the stage for the Canadian leg of shows to play alongside the country great. “I’m really, really excited to do that and just to kind of take notes from him and see how amazing he is on stage and how he works the crowd and stuff like that,” said Porter. For Porter — who is the first Canadian female country artist to land two consecutive number one hits since Shania Twain did so 22 years ago — it’s an exciting opportunity to put herself in front of new audiences and put some miles on her new single, “Seeing Other People,” which released earlier in February. “It’s brand new, starting to get played all across Canada and people seem to be like really reacting to it,” said Porter, who also revealed she may be adding some

more new music to her setlist for the upcoming tour. Porter has been in the studio working on a new album, set to release sometime this summer, and she’s feeling excited about the busy lineup of show on her schedule before the album release. Touring is something that Porter certainly looks forward to, as she loves connecting with an audience and seeing their enthusiasm about her music — especially when she has an audience singing her own music back to her. “It’s just so cool because even though like a couple of my songs have gone number one, I still am so shocked that people know them. I just think I’ll always be like that,” said Porter. “It’s like, ‘whoa, you actually know this song’ and to see thousands of people sing it back is just amazing.” Porter also enjoys the opportunity to meet and greet fans after shows, and experience new places — like Moose Jaw, which she hasn’t played before. The Brad Paisley World Tour will take the stage at Mosaic Place on Mar. 12, and tickets for the show are still available to purchase through the Box Office, either in person, by calling 1 (306) 624-2040, or online.

Health Care Remains a Top Priority

MLA’s Column

Warren Michelson

Moose Jaw North Warren Michelson, MLA

Your Saskatchewan Party Government continues to increase investment in health care for the people of our province. In all my years as your MLA, health care has always been the highest provincial budget expense. The 2019-20 Ministry of Health budget invested a record $5.55 billion in health care programs and services – an increase of $196 million or 3.7 per cent over the previous year, and up 60 per cent since 2007-08. Health care will continue to be a top priority in the upcoming budget later this month. Recent announcements are evidence of progress being made to improve health care in Saskatchewan. The opening of the Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital last fall brings specialized care to babies and youth. The Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital opening freed up space from the previous Pediatrics Unit at the Royal University

Hospital, creating 46 new permanent acute care in-patient beds that were opened March 9 in Saskatoon. In addition, $10 million in new funding was invested last October to lower surgical wait times. To help address increasing demand and wait times for Magnetic Resonance Imaging, the province has invested in adding capacity and expanded hours of operation for MRI services. For any Moose Jaw resident who had to travel to, and try to park at the Regina General Hospital for health appointments, the plan to explore a parkade for that facility is also welcome news. Quality health care in Saskatchewan is also supported through the generosity of community organization contributions. Since its beginnings almost 35 years ago, the Moose Jaw Health Foundation has raised over $38,000,000 for equipment to help medical professionals save lives. The Government recognized the work of the Kinsmen Foundation and Telemiracle by proclaiming last week “Telemiracle Week” in Saskatchewan. Telemiracle Week culminated with Kinsmen Telemiracle 44 at the Conexus Arts Centre in Regina. All the money raised at Telemiracle is spent in Saskatchewan, helping people with mobility, cognitive or health challenges. Telemiracle has raised over $134,000,000

over 43 years, more money per capita than any other telethon in the world. Submission of this column for printing was prior to Telemiracle 44, however I am confident the people of Saskatchewan will overwhelmingly support this event again. Thank you to the Kinsmen/Kinette Clubs, and especially those members from Moose Jaw who volunteered to help make Telemiracle 44 a success. The Kinsmen and Kinette Clubs are part of a great group of service clubs that do so much to make our communities better places to live. The Premier’s Service Club Award established in 2013 has recognized the dedication and charity of the province’s service clubs. The Government of Saskatchewan is accepting nominations for the 2019 Premier’s Service Club Award. In order to be eligible for the Premier’s Service Club Award, nominated groups must be voluntary, non-profit service clubs or fraternal organizations where people meet regularly to fundraise for other organizations. Their mandate must be to better the lives of the people of Saskatchewan. The nomination deadline for the award is April 15, 2020. To nominate a group for the Premier’s Service Club Award, or for more information, visit www.saskatchewan.ca/honoursawards. I encourage you to nominate one of our many deserving local service clubs.

Residential school survivor speaks to students about her experience Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Students in Moose Jaw had the opportunity to hear from a residential school survivor whose experience was the inspiration for Orange Shirt Day across Canada. Phyllis Webstad visited Vanier Collegiate on March 3 and Sacred Heart Elementary School on March 4 as part of the Paths to Reconciliation 12-city national tour. The tour helps students from kindergarten to Grade 12 learn about the negative effects of residential schools on First Nations people. Webstad’s story introduces the topic to young audiences, while a follow-up workshop uses a giant floor map to show where residential schools were. A narrated video of her book, Phyllis’s Orange Shirt, is also shown. The book recounts her early life on reserve and then when she was taken to the residential school, where she had her new orange shirt taken away on the first day. Born in Dog Creek, British Columbia and now living in Williams Lake, B.C.,

Webstad attended St. Joseph Mission Residential School in Williams Lake in 1973 when she was six years old. The school was open from 1891 to 1981. “I’m OK (now). This is not happening anymore (and) it won’t happen to you,” Webstad, 52, said at Sacred Heart. “My experience was a walk in the park (compared to the experiences of her grandmother and mother).” Webstad took students through her early life, of how she grew up in the Fraser Valley near Churn Creek with her grandmother — who attended the Mission from 1925-35 — and how the two prepared fish. Eating fish head soup was a delight while eating fish eyes was similar to eating candy. “It was crunchy,” she said as students groaned. Webstad’s grandmother did her best to feed her family while living in the valley. She grew three gardens and, since they had no electricity, dug into the hillside to

TRADING THOUGHTS

New election propaganda fails truth in advertising principles A glossy sixpage brochure with a smiling Premier Scott Moe on the front landed in every household recently. Reading the brochure and by Ron Walter viewing the Saskatchewan Party government list of accomplishments — at least things it takes credit for — left the impression we will see an election this spring. The election is supposed to be in October but April marks four years of this government and the third term. A snap election after the budget would catch the opposition with its election organizing pants around the ankles. An unprepared New Democratic Party would not fare well at the polls. Among the Saskatchewan Party list of credits are $9 billion to rebuild highways, removing 112,000 residents from provincial tax rolls, population growth, 60 per cent increase in exports, and 83,000 new jobs. The brochure lists the Saskatchewan Party’s ambitious growth plan goals for 20202030. The previous government plan aimed for 100,000 new jobs, falling short when 83,000 jobs were created. Had the province not lost 13,000 construction jobs in the last five years, that goal would have almost been met. But the province has no real control over job creation in construction or any other private sector, other than to develop an environment friendly to business. The public sector added 15,900 jobs in the last five years, still falling short of the goal.

Similarly, the province has little control over increased exports. Saskatchewan is a resource producing region growing grains, mining oil, potash, uranium, and selling in a global market with global prices. When the global economy purrs smoothly, demand for resource based products grows Saskatchewan exports. In a global slowdown the landlocked resources from here are first to lose market share. The Saskatchewan Government has no control over the weather or the global price of oil, potash or uranium. Yet when things go well, all governments take credit for the growth. Population growth can be credited to two factors: aggressive provincial immigration policy and better economic times. The brochure contrasts the supposed Saskatchewan Party Government achievements with failure of past NDP governments. Hopefully, the Saskatchewan Party is paying for the brochure and the onslaught of anti-NDP commercials labelling NDP leader Ryan Meili as not one of us. The commercial twists a Meili comment on the need for some sort of carbon tax into all out support for the federal carbon tax. The commercial goes on to suggest Meili called a rally against the federal carbon tax racist when he actually pointed out some of the participants used the rally to promote racism. Apparently voters will be assailed with lots of half-truths in the coming election, whether it is in April or October.

store their produce. During the early existence of St. Joseph Mission, a fence divided the playground so that boys and girls — usually relatives — could not interact, hug, touch or talk with each other. When Webstad arrived, the fence had been removed but there was still an invisible line that no one was allowed to cross. “If anyone was caught talking, they were separated and there would be severe and harsh punishment,” she said. During her presentation, Webstad showed a picture of her grandmother dressed up for her 99th birthday. Around her grandmother’s neck is a Catholic rosary. Webstad stated she never had respect for the Catholic faith, but eventually did before her grandmother died at age 100 in 2018. In her book, Webstad describes the nuns as “cold-hearted.” Jumping ahead, Webstad spoke about the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) and how, in May 2013, the organization started Orange Shirt Day and chose Sept. 30 to honour it. This particular month was when children were taken to residential schools; the date was picked so schools today could have the chance to settle in before honouring this event. After her presentation, Webstad was asked what she wanted kids to take from her talk.

“That they learn the true history of Canada,” she said. “It’s important to teach children.” Webstad noted her grandchildren go to school with non-Aboriginal students, so she hopes her grandkids receive more respect and face less racism in the future. She noted reconciliation is not dead; instead, she is planting the seeds in students’ minds across Canada so it can live.

Heartland Hospice fundraiserLarissa honouring local stories of strength Kurz Heartland Hospice saw such a positive response to their evening fundraiser last year that they’ve decided to bring it back again this year — with a change in venue and speakers, but all of the same heart. An Evening Under the Stars will take place on Mar. 26 in the Grant Hall banquet room, and will feature a selection of guest speakers to talk about their experience with hospice care, drinks and hors d’oeuvres, and a performance from the Community Choir. There will also be another homemade quilt to be raffled off, and a selection of silent auction items. “It’s going to be a very warm and personal atmosphere where people can gather for an evening to be inspired, uplifted, and moved while raising funds and awareness for Heartland Hospice,” said organizer Angela Sereda. This year’s focus is on creating awareness about the benefits of hospice care, and how the service is accessible to more than just seniors or older patients. The fundraiser has invited a family from the community who has struggled with illness and used hospice care as a support tool in their journey to share their story, as well as Heartland Hospice president Lena Hartman to speak about the organization.

Greg and Leone Ottenbreit (L) were two speakers featured at last year’s fundraiser, pictured here in conversation with Heartland Hospice board member Della Ferguson. (photo by Jason. G. Antonio) The evening will also take a moment to celebrate the life of Elly Mayday, a Saskatchewan-born plus-sized model and awareness advocate for ovarian cancer who passed away last year from the disease. “During that journey, she was very outspoken and really kind of publicized her whole journey through cancer,” said Sereda. “So, we thought because she was originally from our health care area, we would like to celebrate her life and her ongoing crusade to create awareness even though she’s not here.” 20032DE0 20032DE1

Mayday’s family will be attending to share her story, and organizers are glad to be able to share Mayday’s message and show her as the star she was — which ties into the evening’s theme perfectly. “Elly represented so many different stars,”

said Sereda. “And part of [including her story] was, for us, we wanted to highlight that you don’t need to be a senior citizen to require hospice care. It can happen to anybody at any age.” The evening fundraiser was a great success last year, which is why the organization decided to bring it back again this year. All of the funds raised at the event will go towards furnishing the current palliative care room at Pioneer Lodge that Heartland Hospice operates, as well as to plans to expand their services in the city. “We just really want people to come, for the good fellowship and to learn more about Heartland hospice and really just enjoy the evening,” said Sereda. Tickets to the event are $35 and can be purchased online through Eventbrite.com, or at either the Moose Jaw & District EMS on High Street or at Emerald Custom Creations on Fairford Street.

REFLECTIVE MOMENTS

Flip phone did everything I needed it to do When we upgraded from our shiny flip phone to those new-fangled iPhones, I knew there would be an upheaval in our household. Joyce Walter The only time For Moose Jaw Express we used the flip was for ronjoy@sasktel.net emergencies, or when we were travelling so if we went in the ditch we could phone the tow truck operator or a close friend. That phone knew its place and kept to it — it was a telephone, a piece of equipment that allowed us to make phone calls. It had no other use and did not intrude into our lives unless we allowed the intrusion. We had one phone number that we only shared with a few folks, meaning that if it rang, it was one of those few individuals. The scam artists never, ever called that number. We grumbled when we heard our flip phone was obsolete and would have to be replaced by a certain date. But we gave in to the rules and visited the phone shop where we had agreed that we just wanted a phone that made and received calls, with no fancy abilities to do anything else. Housemate forgot our agreement and told the sales person we each wanted an iPhone and from that moment to this, those phones have wormed their way into our lives, if not fully into our hearts. Housemate embraced his new phone with determination and an attitude surely not seen since the invention of the typewriter. He fiddled with it and fooled with it and gradually turned that phone into an extension of his life, a growth taking over his hand, a growth with the only cure being when the battery ran down. Ask a question in a conversation and out it comes while he looks up the answer. He’s even started talking out loud to it, asking questions and sometimes getting unusual

and quirky answers: For instance: “What is the score between the Regina Pats and Lethbridge Hurricanes?” Answer: “There is no evidence of a hurricane in Regina.” That taught him to be more specific in his questions, but it didn’t deter him from making that phone his walking encyclopedia. In fact, a friend refers to the phone as “Ron’s magic machine.” That machine is seldom out of his hand or mind. My phone, on the other hand, is usually in a slide-in pocket in my purse, and I use it mostly for making phone calls and sending text messages. And I have some photos on there that I haven’t learned how to send to anyone or even to my own photo file on my computer. Because it is in my purse upstairs, I do not hear the ping of a newly-sent text message when I am downstairs. And sometimes when I am in the far corner of the basement doing laundry I often don’t hear it ring. Shame on me for not fully embracing my own magic machine. I have learned how to play cribbage on my already-out-of-date phone and have used the health application to input all my allergies and emergency contacts. When I do click on that icon to check how many flights of stairs I’ve climbed or how much distance I’ve walked, it tells me I didn’t use the stairs and only walked .05 kms. Baloney. That .05 kms must have been registered when I moved my purse from one spot to another upstairs. With so many people laughing at my phone phobia, I will do my best to keep the phone somewhere on my person so I may be fully in touch with everyone, even the stranger who keeps inviting me to dinner.

Impromptu Telemiracle fundraiser at Peacock raises money to shave one student’s head Larissa Kurz

What began as a last-minute idea to do something to raise money for Telemiracle has turned into a pretty impressive show of generosity from students at A.E. Peacock Collegiate this week — and the total is only growing higher. A group of Peacock students expressed interest in raising money for this year’s annual charity telethon, and teacher Mark Gilliland got on board to help them plan a donut sale at the high school, in partnership with Maple Leaf Bakery. “We just really threw it together in a very short time, just a matter of three days,” said Gilliland. “And it just came together really quickly, but it seems to be growing and growing.” It was tenth-grade student Austin Harvey who suggested that if his classmates raised enough money during the fundraiser, he would publicly shave his head in the student lounge as a reward for their efforts. “I’m known for my really, really long hair,” said Harvey. “And so I thought it would just be a way to get a lot of attention and actually make a big, lasting difference in the amount of money [raised], so then we’d have not only the donuts but you could see a live shaving.” Peacock students responded and as of Mar. 4, Harvey

is now braving the chilly spring weather with a lot less hair to protect him. Harvey’s shorn locks will be donated to an organization that makes wigs for cancer patients. The goal to reach was $150, according to a Facebook post, and thanks to donut sales and cash donations throughout the week, the group had collected over $750 by Mar. 5 — and they hoped to see that number continue to grow before the telethon that was held on Mar. 7. “It blew up really big and everybody banded together and made it all happen,” said Harvey. Because their impromptu fundraiser was so well-received this week, the students are already thinking about making it an annual project at their school. “We might do the same thing, we know that’s been successful, but I’m sure we’ll come up with other ideas as well,” said Gilliland. “It just grew very quickly, very fast, and it was actually a little bit surprising, but we look forward to making it even bigger and better for next year.” The group of students, including Harvey, headed to Regina to present their donation live at the Telethon on Sunday afternoon.

Rural ranching women celebrate agriculture with learning sessions By Ron Walter - For Agri-Mart Express Local women ranchers had an opportunity to learn about industry trends and network with female counterparts in the industry. The occasion was the fourth Celebrate Rural Ranching Women conference in Moose Jaw at the Shrine Club. “We’ve had some others in Maple Creek,” said organizer Rachel Schroeder of

Kindersley. “We started and we had good attendance there.” The conference moved to Moose Jaw this year as “we wanted to spread it out and give some people in other areas of the province an opportunity to attend.” A number of the 60 attending were from the Moose Jaw region while some drove several hours for the evening and day ses-

sion. Topics by presenters involved the industry: producing healthier calves, water and feed quality, industry programs, multiple grazing crops and two speakers dealing with mental health. “It’s still agricultural information. We want to get that information to our producers and it gives women an opportunity

to get away from the farm because often it’s the men who attend extension events Next year the conference returns to Maple Creek. Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@ sasktel.net

Annual PRISM Awards honours yet another year of local women’s successes Larissa Kurz

The Business Women of Moose Jaw welcomed a sold-out crowd to the seventh annual PRISM Awards, where they celebrated the successes and achievements of 36 local women in and among the business community. “What I know to be true about this city is that we are a city of support, encouragement, empowerment, and bravery, especially in the midst of hardship,” said BWMJ president Kayla Dale in her introductory speech. “You should be proud that you are all here tonight to lift up both those who are celebrating great accomplishments and to raise money for those who may be going through some unimaginably hard times.” All of the nominees in the seven categories — Perseverance, Role Model, Influential, Successful, Mentor, Youth Achievement, and Lifetime Achievement — was given their moment of applause from the crowd. This year’s guest speaker was 15 Wing Chief Warrant Officer Marlene Shillingford, who was the first female member of the CF Snowbirds when she joined the technician crew in 1992 and currently holds the highest title available to non-commissioned members of the Royal

This year’s custom necklace award from Fifth Avenue jewellery featured a small plaque that read PRISM Awards 2020 for winners. The 2020 PRISM Award winner, L-R: Julie Knox, Jaimee Lynn-Hodgson, Joan Buckmaster, Roberta Fonger, Marcy Duffey, Jackie Wilson, and Jocelyn MacLeod Canadian Air Force. In her speech, Shillingford spoke of how important it is to persevere despite the odds and support other women in their goals. “One of the reasons why I stay in the Canadian Forces is to show the young women coming up in the ranks that it is possible

to achieve this rank. It’s possible to make a difference and it’s possible to reach your highest potential,” said Shillingford. “I didn’t have any female role models in high positions back then, and I want to be that for them now. My message to them is to follow your dreams, and don’t let anybody dictate what you can or cannot do.” The annual gala and awards night presented the winner of each category with this year’s unique, specially designed necklace from Fifth Avenue Jewellers, to match the gifted bracelet they received when they were nominated. The winners of this year’s awards are Julie Knox, for Perseverance; Jackie Wilson, for Role Model; Roberta Fonger, for Influential; Marcy Duffy, for Successful;

and Jocelyn MacLeod, for Mentor. The Youth Achievement Award was presented to Central Collegiate student Jaimee Lynn-Hodgson, for her outstanding academic performance, leadership role amongst her classmates, continued achievements with the local Cadets program, and many volunteering accolades The BWMJ also presented a Lifetime Achievement Award to Joan Buckmaster, who has offered her mentorship to many young girls throughout her 35 years as an educator, volunteer, and girls fastball coach. Hosting the awards each year is meant to celebrate the brilliance of local women and spotlight the many things they do within the community to support not only their peers but all of Moose Jaw. The gala also acts as an annual fundraiser for the Moose Jaw Transition House and has raised over $90,000 throughout the years. This year, the gala will be presenting the local women’s shelter with yet another donation to support their programming. Honouring local women in such a way is also made that much more special by hosting the event on the evening before International Women’s Day, a national campaign that advocates for equality and women supporting other women. “Our event is always hosted on or around the weekend of International Women’s Day because we want to celebrate women in our community as other women are being celebrated all over the planet,” said PRISM committee chair Crystal Froese. “We’re happy to be a part of that celebration.”

Thunder Creek Railroad Club returning with impressive model train show Larissa Kurz

The annual Model Train Show is returning to the Western Development Museum on Mar. 28 and 29, and the Moose Jaw Thunder Creek Model Railroad Club is excited to put on the impressive display again this year. The Model Train show will be taking place from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. on both days and is open to anyone with regular admission to the WDM — and it’s perfect for all ages, from the old to the young. “Trains are kind of what we do here, they’re definitely one of the popular parts of our museum,” said WDM programs coordinator Karla Rasmussen. “So [hosting the Model Train show] is cool because you can see the life-sized trains [in our gallery] and also marvel at how detailed these models are.” This year will feature 17 active operating displays, some of which have been put together by groups from all over Saskatchewan, Alberta, and even B.C., as well as information booths ready to answer questions about the model train craft and vendors selling model trains and accessories. Each display is very intricate, some of them stretching 50 or 60 feet long, said show chairman Bill Ash from the club. This year’s collection will feature models arranged in all four of the usual

scales used by model train builders. This will be the 25th year that the local model train club has put on a public show to display their hobby and Ash is looking forward to once again sharing their setups with Moose Jaw. He promises that each year, the show has something different on display, and this year will be no exception.

Taking the political bull out of the oilsands shows why project withdrawn The decision by Teck Corporation to abandon the application for a $20 billion oilsands mine in northern Alberta resulted in much finger pointing at Prime Minister Justin Trudeau by provincial politicians. It was another slap in the face to the resource-rich Alberta by the climate change urban Liberals — was the Western interpretation. The application withdrawal saved Trudeau like a bell ending the round in the boxing ring. No matter what decision he would have made it was lose-lose for him. The fact is, if you strip away all the political bull crap from the discussion, this was purely a business decision masked by Teck management as a blockade by climate change policy. Eight years ago when this massive mine was first planned the scene was rather different. The benchmark WTI oil price was around $80US and rising like raging flood waters. Three pipelines to carry increased oil production to market were planned. In 2020, it looks like one of those pipelines, the Line Three expansion, will get built. One was scrapped, one faces an uncertain future with First Nations blockades. Oil prices have slumped to the $45 to $50 a barrel range. Viability of the Frontier mine is sketchy. The CEO admitted just weeks before the application withdrawal that no profits would be made until 2026. His admission came after an independent accounting firm’s analysis suggested the mine may never turn a profit. Faced with this unprofitable scenario, Teck was unable to find a partner to share the $5 billion down payment, let alone a banking consortium to put up $15 billion in loans.

The best way to hide the bad management decision from shareholders was to blame climate change policy or lack of a clear policy. What banker, investor or manager in his right mind would pursue dumping $20 billion into such an uncertain venture? While the provincial politicians rail at the feds other events show a global loss of credibility by the oil/pipeline industry. A $1 billion pipeline to move natural gas to New York was scrapped the same week as Frontier based on strong environmentalist opposition. A deep well drilling project offshore of Australia was cancelled that week for the same reasons. In Oregon the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) voted against permitting an LNG gas project, first proposed five years ago. The commission wanted the developer, a Canadian outfit, to have more export production sold before construction starts No more buyers are to be found. LNG prices have slipped 40 per cent in a few years. Glutted global oil and natural gas markets are out of reach. And rightly or wrongly strong environmental opposition to fossil fuels has created a no-win situation for the industry. Unfortunately this could be the new world order until a shortage of oil and gas create project viability in some far off day.

Putting together a show like this one is an exciting way for model train enthusiasts like Ash to show off his hobby and share it with the public. He finds that bringing together model train clubs for something like this really has value for the entire hobby. “We’re trying to promote the hobby for people,” said Ash. “A lot of the people who participate in this hobby come from a wide variety of backgrounds, [and] there’s a lot a person can learn from being involved in this stuff too, like a little bit about electricity and electronics and soldering.”

Last year, the show saw a record number of attendees over the weekend and Ash hopes to beat that record again this year. “It’s a great opportunity for people to be able to see not just model trains,” said Ash. “[There’s also] the scenery that’s built around these, the landscaping, the buildings and structures, the vehicles and everything that’s put in around the trains.” He’s also hoping to encourage some interest in the hobby because it certainly involves more than just trains on a track, and the club welcomes anyone who wants to learn more. “If people have never been to see a model train show, they should really just take it in once to be able to get an understanding of the full scope of everything that can be done in miniature,” said Ash. The WDM is happy to again partner with the club to host the Model Train Show again this year, and is jumping on board with the locomotive theme by also focusing their upcoming Coffee Club on Mar. 25 on the famous Short Line 101 at the museum. “We will be doing a short program about our Vulcan locomotive, which is Saskatchewan’s only operating steam train right now,” said Rasmussen. “So the Coffee Club will talk a little bit about the Vulcan’s history, where it was manufactured, where it was used, and how it found its way to the WDM.” The Short Line train is expected to begin running for the season in May.

The celebration of St. Patrick’s Day is for the Irish and all who on that day wish they were Irish. Green milkshakes and green beer are not traditional Irish inventions — North Americans claim the credit. But in the spirit of the day, a bit of food colouring will turn a vanilla shake or a mug of beer into a visual treat in honour of the Emerald Isle. This week’s recipes pay tribute to all who actually have, or claim to have, some Irish in their blood. Happy St. Patrick’s Day. ••• Irish Pasties 1 lb. beef roast 3-4 potatoes salt and pepper to taste 2-9 inch pie crusts melted butter Gravy: drippings from roast 1-2 cups water 2 tsps. beef bouillon 2 tbsps. corn starch 1/4 cup water desired seasonings

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Cook the roast. Boil the potatoes.

Cube roast and potatoes when cooked. Mix and add salt and pepper. Cut pastry into squares. Place a good amount of filling on each square, fold corner to corner and seal. Slash with a knife to make steam holes. Place on a greased cookie sheet and bake 15-20 minutes until crust is brown. Remove from oven and brush with melted butter. To make the gravy, bring all ingredients to a boil, whisking constantly until thickened. Serve pasties with hot gravy poured over the top.

High schools to hold open houses for future Grade 9 students

High schools in Moose Jaw will soon hold open houses to help Grade 8 students better understand what they can expect once they move to the next grade. High schools from both school divisions are hosting open houses on Monday, March 16 to help the class of 2024 and their families choose which school to attend next September. Central Collegiate, Cornerstone Christian School, A.E. Peacock Collegiate, and Vanier Collegiate will hold their open houses from 5:30 to 9 p.m., while Riverview Collegiate has its open house from 5 to 9 p.m. “It’s a drop-in basis. That would be true of any of the schools. You don’t have to drop in at 5:30 right away, you can show up at any time during those three-and-ahalf hours,” explained Dustin Swanson, Peacock principal. Students and families will have the opportunity to meet staff, tour the building, and learn more about the programs and classes high schools have to offer. Swanson thought an important part of the evening was for stu-

dents to see the courses they can select when they start high school. “In some ways, it’s a little bit of an opportunity to give

a test drive as to what they will experience in high school,” Swanson said. Students and families often have questions about what the transition is like to Grade 9 from Grade 8, so the open house is a good opportunity to ask staff and students what to expect and what the differences are between grades, he continued. This will hopefully make the move smoother for students. “(I) encourage families to take the opportunity to explore the high schools. It’s not often you can go around and shop or compare (and) get an opportunity to connect with the different buildings,” Swanson added, “so we really encourage families to come out and look at all of the high schools and make a decisions about what school fits best for them and their needs.” For more information call Holy Trinity Catholic School Division at 306-694-5333 or visit www.htcsd.ca, or call Prairie South School Division at 306-694-1200 or visit www.prairiesouth.ca.

2020 had all the right stuff for strong calf prices until… By Ron Walter - For Agri-Mart Express

AGRIMART

EXPRESS

This year was shaping up as a pretty decent year for fall calf prices until corona

virus panicked markets. “Fundamentals don’t matter so much when we’re in this kind of panic state of mind,” market analyst Brian Perillat told a Celebrating Rural Ranching Women conference in Moose Jaw. “Overall in the last few years, we’ve seen phenomenal beef demand.” Beef consumption increased in the face of higher prices. Canada’s cattle herd continued to decline, a herd expansion in the United States has stalled and exports are strong. Those factors all point to strong prices in the fall when last year’s large U.S. calf crop has worked its way through the system. Canadian beef exports reached a record $3.2 billon last year adding almost a billion dollars in four years. “Last year we exported 10 per cent more beef but had 17 per cent more value. Prices are going up faster than volume. Usually bigger supply means lower prices,” he said.

Potholes are often at their worst in spring. Caused by the expansion and contraction of water in the ground. In winter, this water expands and then contracts as the weather warms up, leaving cracked, broken pavement in its wake.

“It’s been a little bit hairy for the last month,” said the Canfax analyst. “We certainly can’t be immune to all these other factors.” Corona virus hit equity markets, cattle markets and commodity markets. “We’ve seen a pretty big drop in cattle futures” mostly for calves but he remains optimistic. “If you’re on the ranching side of things hopefully most of these things can blow over by fall.” Feedlots, which made $150 to $200 a head in December have experienced $200 a head fed cattle price declines, much caused by the corona virus scare. Canada is “pretty vulnerable to the market. We’re geared up to export a lot of meat and if we can’t export then that changes the picture a lot.” Global beef demand is strong as the middle class evolves and grows in China, the Middle East and Africa. The impact of African Swine Fever can propel beef prices, having wiped out between 40 per cent to 60 per cent of pigs in China. “There’s not enough meat trade in the world to actually fill that gap.” The corona virus shut down much of China leading to loss of poultry when feed was unavailable. Australia, one of Canada’s beef export competitors for

the Asian market, will have little beef to export. Years of drought and recent fires cut beef supply 15 to 20 per cent. The U.S. opening a quota for Brazilian beef may offset lower imports from Australia. Perillat said Beyond Meat plant-based meat is a small market with yet unproven success “There is room for both of us.” Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@sasktel.net

Report from the Legislature

Lyle Stewart MLA Lumsden-Morse The Trudeau Carbon Tax – imposed on a number Lyle Stewart of provinces including MLA, Saskatchewan Lumsden-Morse – is unconstitutional. In a four to one decision, the Alberta Court of Appeal has ruled that the imposition represents a wholesale takeover of a collection of clear provincial jurisdictions and rights, calling it a “constitutional trojan horse” that ultimately could allow the federal government to exert authority over other areas of provincial jurisdiction. The court ruled that the federal government cannot simply take over matters that otherwise fall within provincial authority. This supports the minority opinion that was expressed in our own Saskatchewan Court of Appeal and confirms what

we have been arguing all along; that the Trudeau government does not have the authority to impose their carbon tax against the will of provincial governments, as they have done. The ruling confirms that the federal government has no right to impose a carbon tax on some provinces but not others based on how some provinces have chosen to exercise its own legislative jurisdiction, as written under the constitution. This means that Saskatchewan has the full authority to implement our Prairie Resilience Plan to fight climate change, to reduce emissions and to do so without a federal carbon tax. The Alberta Court of Appeal decision strengthens our resolve as we prepare to move Saskatchewan’s case to the Supreme Court of Canada. And until the Supreme Court rules, we are calling on the federal government to cancel their costly and unconstitutional carbon tax on hard-working Saskatchewan people.

Meanwhile, Ryan Meili and the NDP are not on our side. While advocating for a carbon tax, they have wrongly dismissed our legal case, calling it “a pointless crusade”. The Saskatchewan legislature resumes sitting in March at which time our government will deliver a budget that builds on the goals outlined in the new Growth Plan. Saskatchewan’s Growth Plan for the Next Decade is a roadmap for a growing province of 1.4 million people and a strong economy with 100,000 more jobs. Business and investment growth over the next decade will create stronger communities. Adding value to the products we export around the world will support the growth of new industries and new investment in our province. Technology and innovation will be a catalyst for growth in our core economic centres and the growing diversification of our economy. Growth will create new jobs and more opportunities for young people to realize their future in our province, while attracting skilled and entrepreneurial newcomers from around the world. These are just some of the benefits of a growing province over the next decade. Most importantly, growth affords the

ability to invest in a better quality of life for Saskatchewan families and communities – that is the purpose of growth. A growing population and a strong Saskatchewan economy provided the means to build 46 new schools and add of 1300 teachers to our education system, equal to one new teacher for every eighteen new students enrolled. Recently, the Government of Saskatchewan announced $6 million in new funding to support growing student enrollment with the purchase of 15 new relocatable classrooms for schools across the province. An additional $5 million was announced to support the province’s Preventative Maintenance and Renewal program with funds helping school divisions address infrastructure needs in their schools. Our government is committed to meet the needs in our classrooms, and ensure every student receives the education they deserve. While there is more to do, we know the way to address class size is to keep building classrooms and put teachers in them. You can learn more about our plan for a strong economy, strong communities and strong families at saskgrowthplan.ca.

Premier Moe maintains strong approval rating For Moose Jaw Express

With a provincial election on the horizon later this year, Premier Scott Moe’s approval rating remains steady. According to a survey by the non-profit Angus Reid Institute, Premier Moe is tied with Quebec’s François Legault as the most popular premiers in the country. Moe’s approval rating is currently 58 per

cent. That is the same total as last reported in December of 2019. It is, however, a drop from 65 per cent in June of last year. Several premiers saw their approval rating fall over the last few months. This includes Legault, whose rating dropped from 63 to 58 per cent. Meanwhile, Alberta’s Jason Kenney continues

to fall out of favour with the province; his approval rating has dropped seven points, dipping from 54 per cent in December to 47 in February. Kenney’s approval rating was at 61 per cent in June of 2019. The hardest hit was Premier John Horgan of British Columbia. His approval rating dropped 10 points from 56 per cent to 46

per cent. Part of that is attributed to Horgan’s handling of the Wet’suwet’en protests. In fact, Angus Reid says that 65 per cent of B.C. residents feel that Horgan’s response was poor. For more information, visit the Angus Reid website (angusreid.org).

Government considering parkade option for Regina General Hospital for Moose Jaw Express There is potentially good news for anyone who has to visit the Regina General Hospital and is concerned about the facility’s parking situation. Earlier today, the provincial government announced they have directed the Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA) to look into the possibility of a privately-built, owned, and operated parkade at Regina General. “Parking is a support service, not a direct health care service, so we believe it could be appropriately provided

through the private sector,” Health Minister Jim Reiter said in a press release. “We know that parking at Regina General Hospital has been an issue for a long time, and we are committed to finding a long-term solution. It’s important that staff and visitors feel safe around the facility and have convenient access to the building.” Just last week, the NDP called on the government to commit to building a new parking facility. “Nurses and health care workers, patients and their

families, everyone who needs to access our hospitals deserves to do so as safely and as conveniently as possible,” said NDP Health Critic Vicki Mowat in a press release dated Feb. 25. “The wait list for a staff parking spot is up to 11 years, staff fear for their own safety or vandalism of their vehicle when they have to walk blocks to their car after a night shift, and family members of patients are spending time hunting for parking spots that they should be spending with their loved ones.” The government says they will know more later this spring. At that time, a further decision will be made on issuing a Request for Proposals for design and construction of the parking facility. A decision on how to proceed will be made by summer. In the meantime, the SHA says guests can still use the “Park and Ride” and “Safe Walk” programs that are available to both staff and visitors.

PLACARDED STRUCTURES

Editorial 5

12. Any structure that has been a Placarded Structure for a period exceeding “three months” is deemed to be a Nuisance.

Derelict/Nuisance Property 1511 Hastings St. City Manager Jim Puffalt and Chief Montgomery, When I met with you and Michelle Sanson, October 2018, you asked for my expectations for the abandoned house at 1511 Hastings St. I told you the house should be demolished or returned to a “livable state.” What didn’t you understand? I took your silence for acceptance… Or …(Silence sometimes seems to be easier than facing the truth. Silence can be more powerful than hundreds of misleading words and to me being silent is just as bad as telling a pervasive lie.) Mr Puffalt, take note: “Sealing up the property and you walking away is not an option. “That option is not part of the PROPERTY MAINTENANCE AND NUISANCE BYLAW 5484.” The other 95% of properties on 1500 Hastings exceed the bylaw, while this property fails to meet the minimum standard. In simple terms, they are livable and are occupied; this house isn’t habitable. The following is how the “city manager” and staff must deal with Nuisance Properties in North Battleford under there bylaw 1908: BYLAW NO. 1908 PROPERTY MAINTENANCE AND ABATE NUISANCE

“placarded structure” means a structure which has been placarded by the Prairie North Health Region. ORDER TO REMEDY CONTRAVENTION: 57.2 A Designated Officer may make an Order that: h) any structure is an imminent danger to the public safety or health because it is unsecured or for any other reason; (i) an owner or occupant arrange for inspection or assessment of a building or structure by a person of any professional designation as determined to be necessary by a Designated Officer (including, but not limited to, a registered Professional Engineer, a licensed architect, or an environmental consultant) and for submission to the City of a written report by that professional detailing the results of that inspection or assessment; (j) an owner or occupant arrange for an environmental air quality analysis of the interior spaces (including the attic, wall and floor cavities, and crawl spaces) of a building or structure be conducted by a professional environmental or indoor air quality consultant to identify potential water or mold damage and for submission to the City of a written report of that analysis. Analysis may require inspection holes to be cut in walls, floors and ceilings and the lifting of carpets, vinyl sheet flooring or removal of wallpaper; k) occupation of a building or structure by a person or persons as a dwelling or for any other purpose shall not be permitted or permitted to continue until such time as the Order has been complied with and compliance with the Order has been formally acknowledged by the City; or

l) all environmentally sensitive substances be removed and disposed of by an environmental contractor or Professional Cleaner and proof of such disposal be submitted to the city. Mr. Puffalt, would I be safe to say this house doesn’t meet the minimum standard of North Battleford, the city you were city manager of before coming to Moose Jaw? Would it be safe to say, you, Rod Montgomery and the home owner Dr. James, would be in contravention of the above bylaw as the property stands today? Would it also be, Mr. Puffalt, safe to say a house has to be designated livable by council and must meet that standard, and the only other option is demolished by the owner of these properties? So Mr. Puffalt, would it be safe to say your experience in North Battleford concerning Nuisance Properties could improve the outlook for citizens of Moose Jaw, living next to these properties? Would it be safe to say you haven’t brought these improvements to Moose Jaw? Would I also be safe to say Mr. Puffalt, you chose Chief Montgomery to be the bylaw enforcement officer, for 1511 Hastings St., to silence a citizen. His involvement has shown his lack of understanding and compassion for the residents of block 1500 Hastings. Would I be safe to say you haven’t taken our complaint of August 15, 2018 seriously?

Bank withholds cashing government issued cheque A young man received his cheque for March today, the 3rd of March, from Social Services. This check was to pay rent and buy some groceries. He took it to his bank, the TD here in Moose Jaw. They deposited it and told him they hold it for 10 days as is their policy on all cheques. He was upset and told me, so I went back with him. I said he needed it to survive. It is not a third party check but a government issued Social service check and they can not legally hold it. Do you want him to live on the streets? The lady working and the manager said that is their policy and refused to cash it or give it back to him. I am writing a letter to the editor to make people aware of how that bank treats customers of long-standing…with a cheque that is necessary for survival. It is disgraceful! Janice Baigent

The impact of corona virus on the agri-food industry is EXPRESS still unclear but Farm Credit Canada Principal agricultural economist Sebastian Pouliot sees four connections. A weaker global economy could result from restricted movement of people, goods, delayed investment plans and closure of plants. The SARS outbreak in 2013 reduced the global economy by .1 per cent but China was a less important factor then. Since then Chinese output has quadrupled to make up 15 per cent of the world’s economy. A slower economy will push commodity prices down, as already experienced by oil prices. Demand for food isn’t expected to fall but restricted travel and port unloading rules could create concerns. Lower incomes from a slower economy could hurt ability to pay for food. Reduced oil prices should reduce value of the Canadian dollar acting as a cushion to farm income. Pouliot expects a slow economy will keep interest rates low, even cause central banks to reduce rates.

City Hall Council Notes MAKE A COMPLAINT As it seems that Moose Jaw City Hall does not seem to acknowledge citizen complaints, if you are disgruntled about the lack of communication at City Hall or feel you have a viable complaint with how the City of Moose Jaw is conducting their affairs and spending our taxpayers’ money, please make your voices known to the Ombudsman’s office in

Saskatchewan. Ombudsman Saskatchewan promotes and protects fairness and integrity in the design and delivery of government services. They take complaints about provincial government ministries, agencies, Crown corporations and many health entities. They also take complaints about municipal entities.

Ombudsman Saskatchewan offices are located at 150 – 2401 Saskatchewan Drive Regina Sask. S4P 4H8. Back in July the Ombudsman was Mary McFadyen; she can be reached by phone at the Regina office at (306)787-6211, Fax 306.787-9090 or e-mail ombreg@ombudsman.sk.ca. Let them know how you feel and get them to investigate.

Council to review awarding of trades contracts to Regina companies Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

City administration recently awarded two contracts for trades work to Regina companies, but city council thought that was a poor decision and asked to see all the submissions for the contract work. During an executive committee meeting last November, council authorized city administration to issue requests for proposal (RFPs) for 2020 for electrical, plumbing/HVAC, and carpentry, with an option for a one-year renewal from Jan. 1, 2021 to Dec. 31, 2021. RFPs were issued in late December and closed in mid-January. The results showed eight submissions were received from electrical contractors; seven for plumbing/HVAC; seven for carpentry; and three for millwright. Of the four successful proponents, two were from Moose Jaw and two were from Regina. City administration believes it can save

$140,400 by entering into agreements with contractors for trades services in electrical, plumbing/HVAC and millwright, according to a city council report. Work for carpentry would be done inhouse at a slightly higher dollar rate per hour. During the recent executive committee meeting, council voted 4-2 to table the trade services update to a future meeting so it could review copies of the submissions received. Mayor Fraser Tolmie and Coun. Dawn Luhning were opposed, while Coun. Chris Warren left the room due to a family connection in the trades. “I was very surprised when I saw that two Moose Jaw and two Regina vendors were received as the low tenders. That certainly isn’t going to make us look very good in the eyes of citizens,” said Coun. Scott McMann.

There were several references in the report to travel time and the response time of contractors, he continued. He wondered if administration understood everything about the Regina bids and if city hall had changed any of its processes around contractors coming here from out of town. There were certain requirements in the RFPs that had to be met, so the companies that had the lowest bids met all the requirements and provided the best rates, explained city manager Jim Puffalt. Therefore, two of the winning bidders are from Moose Jaw and two are from Regina. “That is unfortunately what happens sometimes,” he added. What would be great is if city council could sit down and look at the responses received, said Coun. Brian Swanson. He remembered a time when council was

able to see the bids entered for such things as the purchase of a tractor. However, council and administration moved away from that process. “I speak to contractors and they wonder why we don’t have an open bidding process … ,” he continued. He also thought council would be criticized for awarding something as basic as an operating service agreement to a business from Regina. While he has usually taken the heat for awarding contracts to the lowest bidder, he wanted to see more details for this issue. “I’d like to know more before I stick my neck out to get it chopped off that we’re awarding something like this out of town. I want to be able to defend that,” Swanson added, before putting forward the tabling motion.

Injuries of city workers in 2019 declined 27 per cent from 2018 Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

According to a report from city hall, statistics for the fourth quarter of 2019 showed 19 employees were injured on the job, compared to 18 incidents during the same period two years ago. The total number of injuries last year was 75, compared to 103 from two years ago. This represents a decrease of 27 per cent.

A report on the activities of city hall departments for the fourth quarter of 2019 was presented during city council’s most recent regular meeting. Council voted 6-1 to receive and file the report; Coun. Brian Swanson was opposed. Other statistics were provided as part of the safety services’ fourth-quarter report. Four municipal workers needed medical aid compared to five during the same time frame in 2018. Overall, 18 workers required medical aid last year compared to 24 the year before.

Due to overexertion and slips and falls, there were four lost time incidents during the fourth quarter, compared to zero during the same time two years ago. Overall, there were seven lost time incidents — the back was the main body-type injury — compared to six the year before. The number of days lost because of these incidents to-

talled 47 for the final quarter of 2019, compared to zero during the same time two years ago. However, there were fewer days lost overall last year, at 66, compared to 71 the year before. There were four motor vehicle incidents during Q4 of last year — nearly half were due to backing up — compared to 11 during the same period in 2018. Overall, there were 45 total such incidents last year compared to 47 two years ago. Municipal workers damaged four properties — due to inattention and improper procedures — during the fourth quarter, compared to nine in Q4 in 2018. Overall, 42 properties were damaged last year compared to 41 the year before. A category of dangerous occurrence — not defined in the report — cited six incidents during 2019 Q4, compared to 11 during the same in 2018. Overall, there were 16 such incidents last year compared to 26 the year prior.

City Hall Council Notes Fire department holds exercises to prepare for blizzards, power outages Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

The Moose Jaw Fire Department and its emergency-related partners engage in regular training to prepare for major issues that could negatively affect the community, according to the fire chief. The department, senior staff from the City of Moose Jaw, and the community’s emergency management office (EMO) co-ordinator participated in a tabletop scenario during the fourth quarter last year on how each partner would respond to a winter storm, Fire Chief Rod Montgomery explained. They also discussed how they would address a massive power outage. “It went really well on how we do that. So we do continue to work on those types of things,” Montgomery told city council during its most recent regular meeting. A report on the activities of city hall departments for the fourth quarter of 2019 was presented during city council’s recent regular meeting. Council voted 6-1 to receive and file the report; Coun. Brian Swanson was opposed. Mayor Fraser Tolmie wondered what type of emergency plan Moose Jaw had if a rail disaster or fire conflagration happened since similar issues have hit other Saskatchewan communities recently. He pointed out there is a binder in his office for emergency prepared-

ness and he was curious about how often it is reviewed. The deputy fire chief is responsible for co-ordinating EMO situations, said Montgomery. That preparedness binder has been slimmed down so it provides an all-purpose response. There is a template in place to respond to any situation, whether it’s fire, bus crash or hazardous materials. It provides a straightforward approach to working with other agencies, he added. The fire department works with EMS and augments what that organization does. EMS looks after most medical emergencies, while firefighters respond to traumas and heart attacks. Both agencies have worked together since the 1990s after an agreement was signed with the former health region. Highlights The department took delivery of a new engine from Fort Garry Fire Trucks Ltd. during the fourth quarter, but had to send it back to address a few warranty issues, a council report explained. Also during that time period, Gibson’s Energy Refinery donated $25,000 toward NFPA 1081 training for the fire department. Incident types

The fire department responded to 218 incidents during Q4 last year, with fire alarms (84), hazmat (41), first responder EMS (26), fires (20), and motor vehicle collisions (18) the most prominent issues. In comparison, the department responded to 174 incidents during Q4 2018 and 214 incidents in Q4 2017. Overall, firefighters responded to a total of 929 incidents last year. Rural responses Firefighters responded to three motor vehicle collisions in rural areas in the fourth quarter, along with three vehicle fires and one crop fire, for a total of seven incidents. In comparison, the department responded to 13 rural incidents during Q4 2018. Fire loss stats The Moose Jaw Fire Department saved more than $70.4 million worth of structures from fire during the fourth quarter of last year, while it was unable to save more than $1.7 million in property. In the rural areas, it was unable to save $828,100 worth of structures or materials from fire. In comparison, firefighters saved nearly $4.1 million worth of materials during Q4 2018 and more than $20.9 million worth of property in Q4 2017.

Recreation pass helped increase use of rec buildings in 2019 Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

There was an increase in attendance at most recreational buildings last year compared to two years ago, an uptick that city administration believes is due to the universal recreation pass. “The number of people coming through our facilities is up. It’s good to see,” said city manager Jim Puffalt. “The impacts are that the city-wide pass has been well accepted and the programming we put out has (also) been very effective.” A report on the activities of city hall departments for the fourth quarter of 2019 was presented during city council’s most recent regular meeting. Council voted 6-1 to receive and file the report; Coun. Brian Swanson was opposed. Pool use There were 33,960 people who used the Kinsmen Sportsplex pool during the fourth quarter of 2019, compared to

32,588 during the same time two years ago, according to a report from parks and recreation. The total number of people who used the pool last year was 121,736, compared to 114,758 two years ago. At the Phyllis Dewar outdoor pool, 14,419 people jumped into the water there during the entire year. In comparison, 15,476 people used the pool two years ago while 19,489 users visited the pool three years ago. Sixty-six people took out aquatic memberships during the fourth quarter of 2019, compared to 13 people during the same time two years ago. This represented a jump of 102.9 per cent. Overall, 140 aquatic memberships were purchased last year compared to 69 the year before. Recreation passes The number of recreation pass membership that residents purchased was 332

City Hall Council Notes

2019 a ‘horrible year’ for water main breaks in Moose Jaw Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Last year was a “horrible year” for water breaks in Moose Jaw, says the city manager, as there were 12 more ruptures of underground pipes compared to the year before. There were 109 water main breaks in 2019 compared to 97 the year before, according to fourth-quarter statistics from city hall. There were 15 water main breaks specifically during Q4 last year compared to 29 during the same time two years ago. “Hopefully we can turn the corner. Breaks to date are better than last year,” city manager Jim Puffalt said. “Last year there were 11 breaks during Family (Day holiday) week. We’re glad to report that didn’t happen this year. With the Scotties, that would have been quite disruptive.” A report on the activities of city hall departments for the fourth quarter of 2019 was presented during city council’s most recent regular meeting. Council voted 6-1 to receive and file the report; Coun. Brian Swanson was opposed. Roads, lanes and water mains During the fourth quarter last year, the engineering department paved roughly 1.5 kilometres of lanes; rebuilt about 100 square metres of roads; and evaluated 231 metres of sanitary sewer mains and 24 service laterals on Brigham Road. Construction occurred on all six sites of the cast iron wa-

ter main program, the report said. Five of the six sites have been completed, while the remaining site will require sidewalk and paving work this spring. Work on the intersection of Caribou Street West and First Avenue Northwest was completed in October, while 75 per cent of the intersection at Ninth Avenue Southwest and Lillooet Street West has been completed. SaskPower still needs to relocate its overhead lines while the department needs to finish concrete work; both projects will be completed this spring. The replacement of sidewalks and curbs at Seventh Avenue Southwest and Keith Crescent has been fully completed, although the replacement of medians stands at 72 per cent after the project was halted due to cold weather. Solid waste With diversion of waste from the landfill, 18.6 per cent of materials were diverted to recycling in the fourth quarter, compared to 20.2 per cent during the same time two years ago. The total amount of recycling collected during Q4 2019 was 395,270 kilograms compared to 422,472 kg at the same time in 2018. Coun. Scott McMann noted that the amount of commercial landfill tonnage received (12,776.76 kg) was nearly eight times higher than residential material (1,690.86

kg) taken in. He wondered if those commercial products were from Moose Jaw or if the landfill was attracting out-of-town trucks; if it was outside vehicles, then there is an opportunity to increase commercial rates. There has actually been a decline in the amount of outof-town commercial material being delivered after commercial rates were increased a few years ago, explained Josh Mickleborough, director of engineering. “It becomes less economical to haul here (from 200 kilometres away) as rates increase,” he added. The total amount of garbage collected in the fourth quarter last year was 15,741.48 kg compared to 14,783.07 the year before. Complaints received The engineering department received 1,253 complaints from residents during the fourth quarter, for issues such as solid waste, roads, water, and sewer. By the end of the quarter, 80 issues were still outstanding while 1,173 complaints had been resolved, leading to a completion rate of 94 per cent. Residents complained about garbage the most (411 issues), followed by water (260), roads (184), sewer (180) and other (127).

Provincial Court

Low end domestic violence still a “serious matter”

Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express Appearing in Moose Jaw provincial court recently, Brandon Hill, 28, from Moose Jaw, pleaded guilty to assault after shoving his common-law wife into the couch and received 12 months of probation, along with a victim surcharge fine of $100. “I got angry and I pushed her and I left,” Hill told Judge Daryl Rayner. Hill asked that he be allowed to return to his wife since they have a daughter together and another child on the way. Both the judge and the Crown agreed to this request. “Domestic violence is always a serious matter,” Rayner said. “(However), this is at the low end of the scale.” Besides probation, Hill will have to keep the peace and be of good behaviour, report to a probation officer, take assessments for domestic violence and take anger management programs.

Liquored up farmer loses licence after driving to liquor store Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

A trip to the Sobeys liquor store didn’t go as planned for Alan Russell Amundrud, who was already liquored up when he drove there and walked inside. Appearing in Moose Jaw provincial court recently, Amundrud, 60, from Craik, pleaded guilty to operating a vehicle with a blood alcohol content (BAC) level over the legal limit of .08. He was fined $2,500, and given a

AAA Warriors win Game 1 of semifinal in overtime

Calvert scores tying goal, OT winner as Warriors draw first blood against Saskatoon Contacts Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The Moose Jaw AAA Warriors have drawn first blood in their Saskatchewan Midget AAA Hockey League semifinal with the Saskatoon Contacts. Atley Calvert scored the game-winner with 3:45 remaining in the first overtime period to give the Warriors a 3-2 victory in Game 1 Sunday afternoon in Saskatoon. And as has been the case so, so many times this season, the Warriors had to show a bit of third-period resiliency to give themselves a chance. “We wanted to get home ice back and Game 1 was huge, so we kind of stuck with it and kept battling,” said Warriors head coach Trevor Weisgerber. “They came out hard, but we kept in it and were able to get one on the power play in overtime. So it’s good to get that one under our belt and we’re looking forward to [Monday] night.” Game 2 was played on Monday, Mar. 9, with the score unavailable as of press time. On Sunday, after a scoreless first period, the Contacts hit the scoresheet first with a power play goal 6:37 into the second, with Brayden Yager doing the honours and Riley Heidt adding an assist. The duo are among three players – the other being West Vancouver superstar Connor Bedard – who have requested exceptional player status in order to play full time in the WHL as 15-year-olds this coming

The Warriors celebrate a goal with captain Atley Calvert during their first-round series.

season. Saskatoon’s lead wouldn’t last the period, though, as Connor McGrath scored a power play marker of his own with 9:11 to play in the first, sending the two squads into the second intermission tied 1-1. Matthew Hodson would give Saskatoon the lead 6:07 into the third, but true to form much of the season, the Warriors had an answer: team captain Calvert,

Noyes, Wallace advance to Original 16 Cash League playoffs Rinks win play-in games to advance to main draw beginning Mar. 11 Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

Kelsey Noyes and Barb Wallace have lived to play another day in the Original 16 Cash League playoffs. The two rinks each won their respective play-in games last Wednesday to advance to the main draw of the post-season, set to begin on Mar. 11 at the Moose Jaw Ford Curling Centre. Noyes and her junior foursome (3-14) pulled off the upset against ProTec Video (Wade Gray, 4-13), overcoming a 5-2 deficit through three ends with three in the fourth and steals the rest of the way for a 10-5 win after seven ends. For Wallace (4-13), it was a quick start that made the difference in her contest against Main Street Strength and Conditioning (Jazmin Ackerman, 3-14). Wallace scored three in the first, two in the second and another in the third for a quick 6-0 lead and would go on to a 9-5 victory. Things will be decidedly more difficult for both rinks in their next match, as Wallace will face top-seeded BTN Chartered Accountants (Danielle Sicinski, 143) and Ackerman will face second-seed Seaborn Agencies (Joel Jordison, 14-3).

Other results Wednesday saw John’s Music (Ryan Wenarchuk, 12-5) defeat Paws n Play (David Gray, 8-9) 5-3, Kal Tire (Bob Desjarlais, 12-5) steal two in eight for a 6-5 win over Easy Care Living (Lorraine Arguin, 7-10), Forged 365 (Donna Akerman, 10-7) score five in the fourth to defeat Pro-Tec Electric (Stan Barnsley, 10-7) 8-5, KMS (Ben Gamble, 14-3) take a 7-3 win over Tax Team (Murray Stroeder, 13-4), Matt Froehlich (9-8) downing Ackerman Ag (Patrick Ackerman, 4-13) 9-1 and Walchuk Masonary (Ralph Courtnage, 7-10) scoring two in eight for an 8-6 win over EMJ Marketing (Joe Gunnis, 6-11). Other first-round playoff games on Mar. 11 will see Pro-Tec Electric (eight seed) take on Froehlich (9), John’s Music (5) against Easy Care Living (12), Tax Team (4) battling EMJ Marketing (13), KMS (3) duelling Ackerman Ag (14), Kal Tire (6) against Walchuk Masonary (11) and Forged 365 (7) playing Paws N Play (10). The quarter-finals are set for Mar. 18, semifinals Mar. 25 and championship game for Apr. 1.

who would score only 1:13 after Hodson to once again tie things up. That set the stage for overtime, where

with Heidt in the penalty box for a head-contact minor, Calvert would pick up his second of the game to bring things to an end. The Warriors were 1-for-5 on the power play, the Contacts 1-for-6. Chase Coward turned aside 41 shots in the Moose Jaw goal while the Warriors had 26 on Saskatoon’s Chase Hamm. “Chase was really good again, we ended up getting into a little bit of penalty trouble and we ended up giving up a lot of shots there, but it was pretty even 5-on5,” Weisgerber said. “So we have to make sure we’re more disciplined tomorrow night and we shore up our passing and getting pucks deep and things like that. All and all it was a really good game and good to get the win.” With how close things have been throughout the season between the two teams, both squads are expecting nothing less than a war as the series continues. Game 3 of the series is set for Thursday in Saskatoon, with the remainder of the schedule to be determined.

Peacock’s Miller wins provincial wrestling gold, Yamniuk brothers claim silver, Peacock wins 4A boys team title Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

When Peacock Toilers wrestler Davin Miller lost in the regional final to Wilkie’s Darren Toothill last weekend, it would have been easy to assume that a medal at provincials was going to be all but impossible. Factor in the top wrestlers from Regina and Saskatoon in a tournament featuring the best-of-the-best in the province? And then go out and lose your first-round match on top of it? Little to no chance. At least, for anyone other than Miller. No, for the Grade 11 69-kg competitor, it was simply time to get to work. Miller would win three straight matches through the repechage and advance to the medal round, where he’d defeat Saskatoon Marion Graham’s Isaac Loran by technical fall before meeting none other than Toothill in the championship final. This time, it was Miller who came away with the win, and the SHSAA provincial championship gold medal. “He wrestled awesome,� said coach Rob Villeneuve. “Right off the bat, some kids start cold and that might have been what happened with him because he lost his first match, but after that he was able to pick it up and come back and go all the way to the gold medal match. It was awesome.� The loss at regionals actually played a key role in Miller’s provincial success – once the local club had an idea of what they were dealing with in Toothill, it was a matter of finding a way to win if and when they met again. “The best part of losing to him at regionals was we were able to identify that he was a good wrestler,� Villeneuve explained. “We were able to go back and look at the video and see where the kid was picking up some points and

Peacock silver medalists Dylan and Kyle Yamniuk with gold medalist Davin Miller. change some things up with Davin a bit. We just had to change a couple things so he could win and it all worked out.� Miller was one of three medalists from Peacock at the event, with Grade 12 Dylan Yamniuk finishing second in the 73-kg division and Grade 11 Kyle Yamniuk landing silver in the 62-kg class. For Dylan, it was a comfortable run through the main draw, winning both his matches by technical fall to reach the medal round. There, he’d pin Prince Albert’s Josh Jensen in 3:32 before falling to Saskatoon Tommy Douglas’ Cole Theriault in the gold medal bout. Kyle, meanwhile, had a bit of a tougher draw, winning his opening match before falling to Saskatoon Holy Cross’ Blake Davis in the qualifying round final. He rebounded to take a decision win over Prince Albert’s Logan Blair in the repechage final, and followed with an 8-0 decision against Marion Graham’s Griffin Stewart in the champi-

onship semifinal. That set up a rematch with Davis in the gold medal match, where the Saskatoon competitor would again find victory. Peacock’s Connor Rowsell also reached the medal round before finishing fourth in the 90-kg division, while Grade 9 first-year high school competitors Kayce Owens took the mats in the 47-kg class and Central’s Nigel Fang in the 53-kg division. In girls’ competition, Central’s Alexis Bradish landed fourth in the 68-kg division, while Peacock’s Miheret Cridland also reached the bronze medal match before finishing fourth in the 56-kg class. Peacock’s Sydnee Christmann was sixth in 73-kgs, while Grade 12s Alyssa Roney (53-kg) and Makayla Holmes (64-kg) were unable to reach the medal round. All in all, Villeneuve was proud of his crew’s performances. “They’re all dealing with the top 12 in the province, so while I knew they’d do well and wouldn’t get dumped out, some of them are still young and going up against kids a lot older,� Villeneuve said. “Some of these kids have only a year or two under their belt, they all want to win and go there to win, so there’s a bit of sadness at the end. Sometimes it doesn’t turn out, and that’ll be the discussion at practice, where they’re at and how they’ve wrestled and how well they’ve done just to get to this point.� The local competitors will be back on the mats during the Saskatchewan Amateur Wrestling Association provincial championships in Moose Jaw during the Mar. 21 weekend.

Local teams advance through conference basketball playdowns

Defending champion Briercrest Christian, Assiniboia advance in 3A girls, Cornerstone in 2A girls and 3A boys

Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express It was a solid showing for plenty of teams from Moose Jaw and area during the Saskatchewan High School Athletic Association conference basketball championships this past weekend.

Winnipeg sweeps home-and-home with Warriors Ice take 4-1 win at Mosaic Place before scoring three shorthanded 7-1 win in Winnipeg

As the Moose Jaw Warriors finish off their 2019-20 Western Hockey League campaign, it’s all about progression and improvement and looking forward to next season. That’s been the case for a few months now, but it takes on even greater importance as the final few chances for in-game development present themselves to the young squad. In the end, it all means developing good habits and playing the game the right way – and, once again, for stretches against the Winnipeg Ice on Friday night at Mosaic Place, that’s what the Warriors were able to do. But when they didn’t, it was Winnipeg’s game. And in the end, that led to a 4-1 defeat at the hands of the visitors. The next night, it was bad from the get go, as Winnipeg scored three times shorthanded and would take a 7-1 win. Kyle Crosbie scored the only goal for the Warriors in the opener, with his fifth of the season coming midway through the second as he took a pass from Garrett Wright and beat his man down the wing before putting a shot five-hole past Winnipeg’s Liam Hughes. The lead wouldn’t last, though, as Winnipeg scored two more before the period was out and led 3-1 heading into the into the third. They wold take on an insurance marker with 3:24 to play to cap scoring. Warriors prospect Jagger Firkus – who joined the team for the remainder of the season early last week – was named the game’s third star after another solid performance for the 15-year-old forward. The remainder of the campaign will offer a chance to continue to get his feet

Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express wet in the older and faster league. “I’m getting way more comfortable every game, getting used to the speed and size change and everything,” Firkus said. “I just want to get comfortable with the coaching staff and all my teammates here. It’ll make it a lot easier moving here and that’s probably my main goal, just making friendships… the extra 12-13 games will help me with the chemistry and it’ll be a great experience.” Boston Bilous finished with 25 saves for the Warriors, Hughes had 15 stops for Winnipeg. The rematch the next night will go down as one of the Warriors’ worst games of the season. From the Ice simply outduelling Moose Jaw defenders around the net, to creating chance after chance unchecked on goaltender Brock Gould, to the aforementioned three shorthanded goals, it was as tough as a WHL contest can get. Two of the shorthanded markers came on the same double minor in the first period, a opportunity the Warriors themselves wouldn’t score on. It was 4-0 before Eric Alarie got the Warriors on the board at the 9:53 mark of the second period, taking a feed from Cory King off a neutral zone turnover, going in two-on-one and rifling a shot home low to Winnipeg goaltender Gage Alexander’s glove side. That would be the only good news for the Tribe, as Winnipeg made it 5-1 with 13 seconds left in the second before tacking on two more goals in the third. It was another lopsided night on the shot clock, too –

Sometimes it’s just the right place at the right time, as rookie defenceman Lucas Breton was in blocking this shot in the second period. Gould once again faced 40-plus shots, stopping 36, while the Warriors had only 14 on Alexander. The Warriors fell to 14-43-4-0 with the loss, their fourth straight. Winnipeg improved to 35-24-1-0 to sit in third place in the East Division. The Warriors are back in action on Tuesday when they host the Saskatoon Blades. Game time is 7 p.m. at Mosiac Place.

Mavericks off to provincial final after series sweep

Moose Jaw takes 3-1 win over Regina Renegades in Game 2, to face East Central Fillies for gold Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

Sidney Ellingson of the Moose Jaw Mavericks battles East Central Fillies captain Bridgette Vedrees in the corner earlier this season.

The Moose Jaw Midget Mavericks are going for provincial gold. The Mavericks clinched their best-of-three Midget A female hockey semifinal series on Friday night with a 3-1 victory over the Regina Renegades in Regina, giving the local squad a two-gamesto-none sweep. As a result, the highly anticipated match-up between the de facto top two teams in the league will now take place, after the East Central Fillies (14-0-2) also recorded a sweep in their semifinal against the Prairie Storm Thunder. The Renegades didn’t go quietly against the Mavericks (14-2-0), though, with the local squad needing a third-period surge to put away the contest. Janelle Haas opened scoring for Regina 3:16 into the second period, but that edge would only last six minutes before Brooklyn Nimegeers scored for the Mavericks to tie the game 1-1. Kaelyn Logan then scored the eventual game winner 4:14 into the third, and was followed by Ember Dusomme with a shorthanded marker with 1:46 remaining in the game. Schay Camphaug was in goal for the win, Jordana Affie took the loss for Regina. The Fillies, meanwhile, clinched their series on Thursday with a 4-1 win in Southey. The best-of-three championship final series kicks off on Thursday, Mar. 12 at 7:15 p.m. at the Bert Hunt, with Game 2 Sunday, Mar. 15 in Leroy and Game 3, if needed, to be determined.

Central to face Peacock in quest for fifth-straight boys basketball title Cyclones defeat Assiniboia, Toilers edge Vanier in semifinals Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

When the Central Cyclones returned to the Moose Jaw high school boys basketball league championship final, that wasn’t a surprise to anyone. What might be is just how dominant they’ve been in getting back to that point – and how they’ve managed to keep finding success despite suffering a major injury to one of their key players.

The Cyclones rolled to a 115-21 victory over the Assiniboia Rockets in the league semfinal at Central on Tuesday, Mar. 3, advancing to gold medal game this past Tuesday at Sask Polytech, with scores from that contest unavailable as of press time. Given how things were far closer between the two teams in their first match-up of

the season, Cyclones head coach Ryan Boughen was happy with their defensive performance as much as how many points they put on the board. “We went through some bumps at the start of the year, just learning and growing as a young team, and when we played them earlier we had 73 points and they put up 40,” he said. “So we certainly improved this year and that’s good thing.” Central wasn’t leaving anything to chance against Assiniboia and will look to carry the same level of play into the city championship final against the Peacock Toilers, meaning more the same going forward. “It’s high school athletics so anything can happen, you can shoot the ball poorly one night and that could be it,” Boughen said. “That’s one of the reasons we put so much emphasis on defence, that should be the one thing that’s a contest for us and if we play well defensively, we’ve found ourselves in most games. So we’ll keep focusing on that and get ready.” They’ll do so, as they have much of the last month, without the services of provincial team player Dylan Boughen. He continues to recover from a fractured fibula in his left leg and is all but certain to be unavailable the rest of the campaign, including regionals this weekend and Hoopla beyond that. “That’s something we talked to the kids about, these things happen in sports and it’s something we can’t change,” coach Boughen said. “So that forces other kids to have to step up and we’re always working on those things, doing what we can to increase our depth… that’s the way it is with modern basketball, you can’t be a one or two player team, you need that balance and that’s what we’re always looking for.” The Toilers, meanwhile, were looking for

more of the same after battling to a hardfought 64-57 victory in their semifinal with the Vanier Vikings. Vanier took a 25-24 lead out of the first half but were unable to hold on, as Peacock would take a 48-43 edge into the final frame and go on to the seven-point win. Devin Baumann led all scorers with 26 points, while Tollefson finished with 12 and Tata Mugisha 11. Vanier had a 17-point showing from Nathan Mieli, Josh Auger added 10.

Moose Jaw Skating Club, in conjunction with the Skate Canada Saskatchewan, successfully hosted the Annual Winter Classic at Pla-Mor Palace during the last weekend of February. Over 300 skaters and their family members from across the province traveled to Moose Jaw this past weekend for the annual figure skating event. Preparations for the event started in the fall and ended with a flurry of activity and final touches just hours before the first competitor stepped on the ice on Friday morning (Feb. 28). The board members and parent volunteers were instrumental in producing a well-run event. MJSC had 27 participants registered for the events during the competition, keeping our coaches busy all weekend. As a club and as parents, we are proud of our children for putting their skills on display for the competition. The children should give themselves a pat on the back for the personal bests that they achieved, maybe the very first time that they have ever competed, for the ribbons and medals that were awarded to them and quite likely, a new provincial record high score achieved for an Artistic Event by one of our skaters. Congratulations to all of our Moose Jaw Skating Club competitors.

Toilers taking on Central for high school girls basketball gold Peacock defeats Vanier, Central takes win over Briercrest Christian in semifinals Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The Peacock Toilers have stood like an iron colossus over the Moose Jaw high school girls basketball league for almost a full decade at this point. They planned to officially make it 10 years straight when they took the court in the city championship this past Tuesday against the Central Cyclones. The Toilers advanced to the gold medal game with an 80-50 win over the Vanier Spirits in their semifinal on Tuesday, Mar. 3, while the Cyclones picked up a 61-43 win over the Briercrest Christian Academy Cougars the same night to book their spot in the final. Scores were unavailable from the gold medal game as of press time. “We got the result we wanted, so we’re excited for the next two weeks of basketball,” said Toilers coach Penny Maelde. “Everybody turns it up during playoffs, everyone knows they’re big games and they want to win. Vanier had a great game, they played hard and never gave up.” In the end, it was the Toilers’ overall depth that proved to be the difference, as it did much of the way through their perfect 7-0 regular season campaign. Five players hit double digits in scoring in the semifinal, as Anna Maelde led all scorers with 19 points, Caitlyn

Johnson scored 13, Ella Muchowski and Sadie Ward 11 each and Sydney Measner 10. That paved the way for a 32-8 lead after the first quarter and 47-22 edge at the half. Feona Tolentino led Vanier with 14 points, Alex Marak and Jewellyn McDonald picked up 11 each.

Even with their success in Moose Jaw this season, the Toilers aren’t about to relax going into the final – Sask Polytech has long had a history of turning easy wins into close battles, making the need for a good game at the best time all but imperative. “I think at this time of year everyone had gotten better,” coach Maelde said. “So to win anything, you’re going to have to be playing your best ball and ultimately that’s what we’re wanting to do every game, keep up with the execution and playing out best.” The Cyclones found themselves in low-scoring battle through the first half and into the third quarter against Briercrest Christian, holding a 22-20 lead early after the break. Both teams started hitting shots as time went, with Central making the most of their home-gym familiarity to pull away. Emily Blackmore and Alexa Watterson had 15 points each for the Cyclones, Nylah Seaborn added 12. Emma Carter put up 17 points for the Cougars, Lily Matthies recorded 12.

Raising healthier, heavier calves by early intervention By Ron Walter - For Agri-Mart Express

AGRIMART

EXPRESS

Producing healthier and heavier calves is the goal of every ranch. Making sure newborn calves receive the antibodies found in colostrum can develop healthier and heavier calves, Ogema veterinarian Dr. Andy Acton told the Celebrating Rural Ranching Women 2020 conference in Moose Jaw. The colostrum in fresh milk provides antibodies that prevent disease in the

calf. How soon the colostrum is needed varies among ranchers from a few hours to one day. “Get the colostrum in the calf as soon as you can.� If one of the calves from his 40 cow herd goes two or three hours without sucking milk, he either guides the calf to nurse or feeds milk from a bottle or tube. Some producers say they lose too many calves by tube feeding but Acton says more are lost from not getting colostrum soon enough. Not getting colostrum quickly enough can result in lighter less healthy calves, said the Deep South Clinic vet. He hand milks two or three litres of milk for calves that don’t get to the teat right away. While at one of his clients, Acton tested 10 newborn calves for colostrum. The results: three had high levels, three tested good, three were so-so, and one had none. By the time Acton contacted the rancher with results the calf with no colostrum had died. Taking measures to ensure baby calves get colostrum immediately can add 38 pounds to weaning weights, or about $80 a calf Producers should watch for weak calves and be particular to feed twins to avoid smaller sickly calves. In his own operation he segregates a week’ newborn and mothers in different pens to reduce disease. “You want to keep new calves away from older calves’ manure.� Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@sasktel.net

On the Front Porch by Wanda Smith Shock Value

I enjoyed a nice visit with a few moms the other day. It was kind of a typical chat about kids and our busy lives but I was shocked to hear of a situation in which free speech was once again taken away in our local community. The story goes that someone was not allowed to wear a piece of clothing with certain words on it. Be assured the words were not swear words or derogatory words. They were words that represented something that person believed in. In reality, it was a war on values. The hair on the back of my neck stands up even now when I see that the war on free speech and freedom of religious views and opinions is showing up on our door step. There are so many issues across this nation and beyond that have me so concerned. I hear the same cause for concern from many friends, community members and beyond. Are you one of them? Not only does it appear our rights are slowly being stripped away, it is starting to show up in the economic downfall right in our own back yard. My heart goes out to the farmers, ranchers, laborers, teachers, and parents as the rug has been pulled out from underneath them in one way or another. The list could go on for all those who’ve been directly or indirectly affected by the lawmakers in our nation. As I was praying this morning about what to write about this week, the words “shock value� came to mind. It seems that the world, as a whole, needs to feed on information that is more shocking than the last story. The media’s job is to sell stories. The more shock value they get, the more money goes into their pockets. According to Wikipedia, shock value “...is the potential of an action, image, text, or other form of communication to provoke a reaction of disgust, shock, anger, or fear.� The danger of using shock value continually is that it has caused desensitization to the realities and horrors of actual true situations around us and the globe. We used to be able to read or hear a story and believe it. Not anymore. There is so much fake news out there; we are hard-pressed to know what is true and what isn’t. I am thankful for the Moose Jaw Value Express that keeps a small-town, honest approach to their paper. I am thankful I have been given the freedom to express my thoughts on paper without control or manipulation; simply to be able to express my thoughts. Period. We are experiencing the birth pangs of the earth in transition as we look to the return of Jesus. “But understand this, in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power.� I believe the only way to navigate this very tumultuous time we are living in is to keep our eyes on Jesus and then stay close to believers, fellowshipping and encouraging each other. “Let us not neglect meeting together, as some have made a habit, but let us encourage one another, and all the more as you see the Day approaching.� (Hebrews 10:25) We need Jesus and the fellowship of believers now more ever.

Murray was a long time member of Elks Canada, both in Yellowknife and Moose Jaw. He was an avid biker, taking short and long trips on his beloved Harley with friends whenever possible. Murray’s interests and passions varied over the years but his vinyl album collection remained a constant and he always was a loyal family man and friend who enjoyed a good laugh over a ‘beverage’.

Insurance companies join forces to offer better customer service Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Two Moose Jaw insurance companies have joined forces to give their clients more well-rounded financial advice through increased services, resources, expertise and customer service. Longstanding community businesses Heritage Insurance Ltd. and Purposed Financial Corp. have created a partnership, or affiliation, that will see them share their knowledge with each other’s clients and recommended their clients to the other. Heritage — owned by Greg Marcyniuk — focuses mainly on general insurance, such as travel, while Purposed Financial — owned by Aaron Ruston — focuses on life insurance and investments. Heritage was founded in 1982, with Marcyniuk purchasing the business in 2003. Ruston has worked in the financial industry for 36 years. The businesses announced their affiliation in early February. “It’s been great so far,” Marcyniuk said recently. “With the affiliation, we have quite a few of (Ruston’s) clients coming to us and we have sent ours to him on a regular basis.” Ruston has been around for nearly four decades and does a fantastic job, Marcyniuk continued. Heritage also does a great job based on its internet reviews and client testimonies. Marcyniuk believes this partnership will be a winwin for everyone, but especially for his clients, since he knows Ruston is available to provide various types of insurance. So far Heritage’s clients and employees have had nothing but good things to say about Ruston’s service. “… We always try and do our utmost to make sure we are getting our clients properly covered for their insurance dollars so we are doing the right thing for them,” Marcyniuk said. Talks between the two businesses began last summer with the two owners feeling each other out and talking to each other’s clients. From there, the two came to an agreement. “I’m looking forward to a long, strong business relationship with (Ruston) and his assistants there,” added Marcyniuk. This new partnership is a great fit, Ruston told the Express. Heritage’s approach to customer service is similarly aligned with that of Purposed Financial. Both have complementary services; the former business focuses on liability insurance while the latter business brings decades of experience and a large team that focuses on taxation and planning. Ruston praised Marcyniuk’s business skills and trustworthiness, with the latter aspect important to him. “I think what it brings to Moose Jaw overall is a very high level of professional financial planning and insurance team that brings lots of experience,” he continued “We’re both brokers, so we can go out and access many many different companies in the marketplace … Wha people are going to benefit from is no cookie-cutter solutions with us. We put a lot of time into things and I think this just strengthens what we’ve done.” Ruston and his family moved to Moose Jaw 20 years ago and fell in love with the community. With this new partnership, he thought both companies can work together to make a big difference. This excites him, since he can now give back to a community that has given so much to him. For more information call Heritage Insurance at 1-800667-7640 or Purposed Financial at 306-684-1934.

Trout eggs hatching in elementary schools as part of conservation program into your life! Larissa Kurz

Two elementary schools in Moose Jaw are once again nurturing an aquarium of trout hatchlings as part of the annual educational conservation project organized by the Wildlife Federation. The Fish in Schools program is something the Moose Jaw Wildlife Federation does every year in partnership with both local schools and the Fish and Wildlife Development Fund, who provide the hatchery kits and fish eggs. “A lot of learning, whether you like it or not is theoretical, but here it’s hands-on,” said MJWF president Todd Smith. This year, both École Ducharme and Palliser Heights Elementary School received a trout egg kit, which means students have been able to watch the progress of the eggs as they hatch into free-swimming fish. These particular trout eggs came from the Fort Qu’Appelle Fish Culture Station in Echo Lake. They arrived in mid-January and are already calling their respective schools home for the next few months. “We get a hundred eggs per kit generally, and they come in the eyed stage, so they’ve been fertilized and they’ve started developing to the point where you can see the fish’s eyes inside as well as some of the circulatory system and part of the spine,” said Smith.

The program is always a hit with the students, who are tasked with taking care of the hatchling trout until late spring when they are ready to be taken to a local body of water to join the ecosystem. “Every year, they’re super excited. They love watching the fish,” said Smith, who is also the teacher administering the program at École Ducharme. The fish hatched in Moose Jaw and area have been released into the Buffalo Pound trout pond for the last few years, meaning that some of the trout caught in the lake could have gotten their beginnings in one of these schools. The Fish in Schools program is a unique educational tool, especially as it teaches students about more than just the biology of a fish’s life cycle in a very hands-on capacity. “With grade one, kindergarten, all the way up through grade 12 sciences, there’s tie ins throughout the curriculum everywhere,” said Smith. “The kids take what they have seen in a textbook and now they’re watching it unfold in real life.” Students get to learn about factors that affect hatch rates, and even run tests on the aquarium environment — to determine things like water quality, oxygen levels, ammonium nitrate content, and so on.

“From a teacher’s point of view, we can develop entire units around data collection and analysis, and then conservation, giving back to resources, human impact on the environment, the list goes on,” said Smith. “It’s a pretty phenomenal program.” The Wildlife Federation organizes the Fish in Schools program every year, usually beginning when hatch kits arrive around mid-January, and Smith encourages schools to get involved with next year’s program.
