Habitat for Humanity welcomes family into new home - owner says, “It’s a dream come true” Sasha-Gay Lobban
A local family received the keys to their new home on Wednesday, November 7th in an emotional Key Ceremony hosted by Habitat Humanity, in which the organization celebrated the completion of its 7th home in Moose Jaw. Habitat for Humanity welcomed Kathy Brown and her son Carter into their new home at 1160 1st Avenue NE. To celebrate the occasion, several dignitaries, volunteers, family and friends joined Brown in receiving the keys to her brand-new home. In an emotional presentation, Brown said their new home is a “big dream come true” for her and her son, who was equally excited and filled with emotion as they received the keys to their newly built home. “All those days, all the hours come down to this; I will get to spend my days with Carter surrounded by the walls that I helped build,” said Brown. “I can chase him down the hall, stepping on the floor that I helped lay. Play hide and seek and find him hiding under the stairs where the walls are filled with signatures of all the wonderful people that helped make my dream- our dream come true.” She thanked Habitat for Humanity and all the organizations and volunteers involved in making her dream home possible. “To-

The Habitat Moose Jaw Committee has done an amazing job of bringing the community together to support Kathy’s homeownership dream. As an organization, we would like to express our sincere thanks for all the support we’ve received to make this project possible.” The construction of the new home has received $50,000 in funding through the Federal and Provincial Governments. The Mosaic Company also provided a generous donation; in-kind and cash donations from organizations including Armstrong Construction, Carpet One Floor and Home Apex Electric. In addition, nearly $70,000 was raised through community fundraising projects, including the Annual Spring Gala and Annual Colour Fun Run.
Habitat for Humanity Moose Jaw operates as a Chapter under the umbrella of Habitat for Humanity Regina. Habitat Moose Jaw was founded in 2008 and has an active volunteer board that has served eight (8) families with safe, decent and affordable housing. “Since our chapter’s 2008 launch, for me to have been able to attend every family introduction as well as their subsequent key presentations, has been amazing,” said Habitat for Humanity Board Chair, Bill Harris. “Each event has served to further validate the importance of providing Habitat partner families with a hand up in order to be able them to experience the joys of safe, decent and affordable homeownership.” MLA for Moose Jaw North, Warren Michelson also congratulated Kathy and her son on their new home. “Our government is pleased to stand with our partners today to welcome a Moose Jaw family to their new home,” Michelson said. “Having a safe, comfortable and affordable home is important for all Saskatchewan people and their communities. This home marks an important step forward for this family and demonstrates our commitment to helping more families achieve strength, stability and self-reliance, beginning with a home to call their own.”
Stocking campaign for salvation army returns The Moose Jaw Express is pleased to bring back the Stocking Fund, a long running feature in the old Moose Jaw Times Herald publication. The stocking fund raises money for the good works that the Salvation Army does for the community, and Major Dan, is also happy this is back, as the funds are always needed. The goal we have set this year is $10,000., and publisher Robert Ritchie would like to challenge the community to
rise up and do what they can, as every dollar helps. “We have never charged for our paper and I would ask that, in appreciation of the weekly paper that we delivery to your homes, you would donate something to this cause. That would bless the Salvation Army and help the community,” Ritchie said. You can bring your cheques and cash to the Moose Jaw Express office, located at 32 Manitoba Street West and EVERY dime collected will go to the Salvation Army.
We will document your donation, and publish your name in the Express, showing our gratitude, and for those wanting a Tax-deductible receipt, they will be issued by the Salvation Army. Come on Moose Jaw, lets break that goal and remember, a little deed is better than a great intention! Thank you for your support and let’s make this a Merry Christmas for the Salvation Army.

Big Two flying school at 15 Wing gets new honorary-colonel By Ron Walter For Moose Jaw Express
The Number Two Canadian Forces Flying Training School at 15 Wing Moose Jaw has a new honorary-colonel. Former Big Two flight instructor and F-18 pilot Jane Foster was named honorary-colonel at a recent ceremony. She succeeds Hon.-Col. Cal Jorstad, a flying farmer, who has been honorary-colonel for the school since 2014. Big Two Commandant Lt.-Col. Jody McKinnon described Foster as a trailblazer. “Jane was a student pilot in Moose Jaw and is intimately familiar with the challenges that you face in your ordinary lives in the classroom, in the briefing room and in the air,” he said. “Because of this, she knows a thing or two about dedication, determination, motivation and focus.” Foster, whose husband Richard was posted to 15 Wing as commander in 2006, said she never ever dreamed of being appointed an honorary-colonel. “I am absolutely thrilled and honored to have been selected the new honorary-colonel for Number Two Canadian Forces
Hand-over signing, from left, Hon.-Col. Cal Jorstad, Big Two Commandant Lt.Col. Jody McKinnon, Hon.-Col. Jane Foster Flying Training School.” “The Big Two is the best in the West and well beyond. The proof of this motto is in the product… “I know for a fact that today’s students have a far more challenging syllabus than I ever underwent in the ’80s.”
She said enthusiasm and motivation of students here is limitless. “There is no other school in Canada where students are so incredibly motivated.” Her duties expect her to spend time with all ranks of the unit. “Cal, you exemplified this expectation.”
She looks forward to meeting all members of the school. “If sharing any of my past experiences can help shape your decisions, ease apprehension, I’ll be only too happy to do so. “I have some hard steps to follow as the school has been blessed with some extraordinary honorary-colonels. Speaking to Jorstad, she said: “This O.B Philp building has been your second home, a place where you shared much of your time with students getting to know them, offering encouragement and friendship.” Both Jorstad and his wife Holly have been “steadfast in making the Wing and school a better place.” Within months of Jorstad’s appointment, visitors to the Big Two school noticed he knew everybody by name and encouraged them. He tackled his new volunteer position with gusto. Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@ sasktel.net
Serving the Community
Warren Michelson Moose Jaw North
Warren Michelson, MLA
It is a tremendous honour to serve you as the Member for Moose Jaw North in the Saskatchewan Legislative Assembly. Under the leadership of Premier Scott Moe, our government is standing up for Saskatchewan by working to protect and grow our economy, by carefully managing taxpayer dollars, and by delivering important programs and services to the people of Moose Jaw and Saskatchewan. Our three-year plan to reduce the province’s dependence on resource revenues and return the budget to balance is on track. After a $1.2 billion budget deficit in 2016-17, our government made difficult but necessary decisions to significantly reduce the deficit the following year. This past spring, we delivered the 2018-19 budget which kept our three-year plan on track, while also making important investments for Saskatchewan people. During this session of the legislature, our government will deliver the 2019-20 budget – and it will be a balanced budget. Moody’s recently reconfirmed a triple-A credit rating
score for Saskatchewan, making our province one of only two Canadian provinces to achieve Moody’s highest credit rating. Strong financial management provides a solid foundation for the province’s economy, and this year, Saskatchewan has seen clear signs of an improving economy. Our population continues to grow, reaching 1,162,000 people – an increase of more than 11,000 in the past year and 160,000 in the past 11 years. During that time, Saskatchewan has enjoyed the second-fastest rate of job growth in the country, with 62,700 more people now working in our province. Saskatchewan is experiencing strong job growth in spite of trade and transportation challenges, world resource prices, and the threat of a federally-imposed carbon tax. Statistics Canada figures show 2,500 new jobs last month, nearly 10,000 new jobs since last year, and the best job growth our province has seen in the past four years. The population and number of jobs has grown because our economy has grown. Saskatchewan’s gross domestic product increased by 22 per cent in a decade. During that time, public and private capital investment grew at five times the national rate. The Fraser Institute’s 2017 survey for mining investment ranked Saskatchewan second out of 91 jurisdictions in the world for mining investment attractiveness. To encourage further growth, the new four-year Mineral Development Strategy announced this spring creates an incentive program to encourage mineral exploration and will increase the amount of geophysical data available.
Our government will continue exploring ways to maintain and improve the competitiveness of our oil and gas industry. This will be done by expanding existing incentives and introducing new oil well drilling and petroleum incentives. Technology and innovation play a critical role in growing Saskatchewan’s economy. This includes the new Saskatchewan Technology Startup Incentive, which is a non-refundable tax credit designed to encourage investment in early-stage technology companies. Innovation Saskatchewan will also continue to invest in the technology incubator Co.Labs, which has helped more than 50 companies receive programming support and mentorship, resulting in more than $5 million in private investment for those companies. A growing economy and strong financial management has allowed our government to make important investments that improve quality of life and make life more affordable for those living in Moose Jaw and all across Saskatchewan. This includes the creation and enhancement of the Saskatchewan Low-Income Tax Credit, tripling the Seniors Income Plan benefit for low-income seniors and increasing personal, spousal and child tax exemptions to the point that 112,000 more people no longer pay any provincial income tax. We will continue to stand up for Saskatchewan’s interests, for our economy and, and most importantly, for our people. I look forward to continue advancing these interests and advocating on your behalf.

Although it’s still early in the season, I’m pretty impressed with this year’s Warrior tribe and how they are showing. It’s funny how life goes sometimes. When you think you’ve got it made in the shade, sometimes pride goes before the fall and although our previous Warrior team was expected to perform top-notch the last year or two, it just wasn’t to be. With these young upstarts this year Joan Ritchie and just a small core of seaEDITOR soned players, everyone has been hesitant to even hope for a good showing and look at these guys working hard and winning games! Presently their stats are 7 wins, 5 losses and 3 losses in overtime, which leaves them in a possible playoff situation as of now, but there’s lots of ice time ahead before the deciding is done. Things aren’t always what they seem but where there’s a will, there’s a way. It’s yet to be seen for the team, but so far so good! I think of lots of underdog stories. One in particular is how a young lad named David slew Goliath. He was probably a skinny kid with no muscle mass but who would’ve thunk that he would be the one to slay a giant with a slingshot and a stone? We somehow always root for the underdogs and want them to win. Eddie the Eagle comes to mind…He was just on the news recently regarding the Calgary bid for the 2026 Olympics. Remember him? “When Michael “Eddie” Edwards did not make the cut as a downhill skier for Great Britain, he chose to take up ski jumping. Eddie the Eagle was living in a mental hospital in Finland – it was the only housing that he could afford - when he was told that he had qualified for the 1988 Games. He finished in last place, but his story was made into the film “Eddie the Eagle” in 2016.” https://forward.com/ schmooze/365689/the-greatest-underdog-sports-stories-ofall-time-team-israel/ Have you ever heard of Abebe Bikila? It’s a good one. He was an unknown Ethiopian runner. From a tiny village in rural Ethiopia, he didn’t even start running until he was 24. At the time, he was working for the Emperor’s Guard and had been noticed by a Swedish coach who was hired by the Ethiopian government to spot potential athletes. Although he had won multiple marathons in Ethiopia, his finishing times weren’t good enough to get him noticed. He wasn’t even slotted to go to the Rome Olympics in 1960, but he was sent in place of a teammate who had injured himself. Bikila was completely unknown but won the race (Rome 1960), although he ran it barefoot, he beat the world record and became the first black African to win an Olympic gold medal. It’s the spirit of the fight that determines the outcome. It’s a reminder that your fate isn’t pre-determined by the way things look at the start. Keep up the good work guys!

Palliser Regional Library increase in rural levy for 2019 Sasha-Gay Lobban
Palliser Regional Library hosted its Fall Regional meeting at the Moose Jaw Public Library on Friday, November 2nd where they presented the proposed 2019 budget and announced the 2019 proposed rural levy as well as providing several updates and reports. In addition, the board also had a Public Library Sector Engagement Consultation where the board discussed how they will respond to five questions submitted by the government on what they would like to see in the legislation and the future of libraries in the province. Director of Palliser Regional Library, Jan Smith explained this move for a Public Library Sector Engagement consultation. “Our libraries will respond to what changes they’d like to see in the legislation. There’s a Public Library Sector Engagement process going on by the government and we discuss with our rural reps about how to respond. The government sent us five questions and we discuss how we want to answer them during the course of this month. We’ve got submissions coming in from all towns, villages and RMs that are interested in submitting them to us because they also received the questions. We’re in discussions with staff and the public. We’re trying to get as much public opinion as we can as we move forward in responding to the questions.” Smith spoke of the Library Act that she says is one of the main things that needs to be updated, which they will be bringing to the forefront in Palliser Regional’s response. “One of the issues is that a lot of people think it is about trying to save our libraries—we may have to go to that stage again. However, right now, the original Library Act was written in 1995, it hasn’t been adjusted since then and everything has changed in the library world. We’re more computerized; we got provincial inter-agency loaning of books; courier service; computer techs and more and we’re having to look at the legislation and the rules and governance around that,” she explained. “The other thing the panel is doing is to see where we want to take our libraries. Libraries have evolved from just being a book warehouse to a public center. So, in many communities, we are the last place where we can have public meetings and people can go at any time to use it. It’s a sanctuary for some, both physically and emotionally.” Smith says the public will hear further about this soon. In the meantime, since the SILS levy was introduced in 2011, Palliser says they now have to increase the levy to “cover SILS membership cost increases.” They added that, “The SILS levy will cover $23,575 of the $60,602 SILS bill. As in the past years, the amount that Palliser HQ is paying has increased.” Palliser also explained that overall, Palliser has lost in 2018, another $450 from the Open Hours portion of the provincial grant. “All costs are

going up. It is to the point where Page starting salaries will fall below minimum wage in 2019,” Palliser indicated in one of its reports. The Rural Library Levy for 2019: Rural Base Levy: $14.595 (per person total to be billed 2019) Towns with Library Levy rate $21.595 (per person to be billed 2019) Assiniboia $28.595 (per person to be billed 2019) Palliser Regional also provided some reports on some of their programs this year: TD Summer Reading Club 2018: This summer, TD Summer Reading Club helped kids find and explore their passions and encourages them to share their delight with others along the way. 19 branches participated with 692 children participating in the rural branches and 591 participating at Moose Jaw. 248 programs were run across the region with 3,149 in attendance. All in all, it was a very successful TD Summer Reading Club which helped feed the passions of young readers. Community Assessment –Telephone Surveys and 19 Rural Community Assessments Completed: Palliser’s Summer Youth Employment Strategy students completed calls to people in over 49 rural communities across the region. The surveys will shortly be available to all communities including the town and RM Councils. Palliser intends to meet with local boards to discuss their community’s results and help them create an action plan for their library service which will be based on local needs. Once that is completed, a Palliser-wide strategic plan will be created that will help chart the way forward.

Agriculture labour shortage reviewed by national survey By Ron Walter For Agri-Mart Express
A labour market survey by the Canadian Agricultural Human Resources council will update future farm labour needs. EXPRESS A comprehensive labour market survey was started in October with the deadline for filing responses set at Nov. 30. The new survey will update a 2014 survey and provide labour market policy with data to plan for the next 10 years. Ten-year labour market forecasts will be made for each province and each type of production. Information will allow policy makers to determine if retraining programs are needed. The 2014 study found a gap in the supply of farm workers with 26,400 unfilled jobs. Three-quarters of the gap was filled by temporary foreign workers. Without foreign labour, 59,000 jobs in the economy would have been at risk. That cost of losing 2.7 per cent of the work force is estimated at $1.5 billion. The previous study predicted 114,000 more agricultural jobs by 2025 than the domestic labour force can fill. Ontario had a 28,000 employee gap, the highest in Canada, with 46,000 predicted by 2025. Saskatchewan had a 4,000 person shortage with 13,000 expected by 2025.

King George Elementary honors War Veterans Sasha-Gay Lobban
Students at King George Elementary School and teachers braved the cold and windy conditions on Monday, November 5th to place poppies on the graves of War Veterans at the Rosedale Cemetery. Teachers reminded their students of the importance of remembering Veterans, as this month commemorates 100 years since the end of WW1. Before placing poppies on graves, the students took a moment to honor Veterans and recited a poem. They subsequently walked around and placed poppies on every Veteran’s grave. Teacher, Michelle Gallagher talks to students about the importance of Remembrance Day and honoring Veterans.
Michelle Gallagher, teacher at King George says this is an important activity for students that is done every year. She says honoring Veterans by placing poppies on graves and reflecting on their sacrifices, bring to light what students learn in the classroom. “I think when children are involved this way, they have more of an understanding of what they’re doing and why it is important. When they can see the numbers of graves that are here, which is just a fraction of the men and women who served to keep Canada peaceful, I think it is good for the students to do

Local unemployment rate one of lowest in Canada with more workers By Ron Walter For Moose Jaw Express
The Swift Current-Moose Jaw region has the lowest unemployment rate of five Saskatchewan labour regions. Unemployment rate for this region in the October Statistics Canada labour survey was 3.8 per cent, down one-tenth of one per cent since last year. This region has the fourth lowest unemployment rate of any Canadian region. The Saskatchewan unemployment rate was 6.1 per cent, up from 5.8 per cent one year ago. The national unemployment rate in October was 5.8 per cent, down .2 per cent from a year ago. Highest unemployment in Saskatchewan regions was Prince Albert Northern at 7.2 per cent, up from 6.8 per cent a year ago.

The Regina Moose Mountain region had 6.1 per cent unemployment, down from 7.1 per cent last year. The low Swift Current-Moose Jaw region unemployment comes with a higher participation rate of 62.7 per cent of the population, up from 60.9 per cent one year ago. The Saskatchewan labour participation rate stayed the same at 64.9 per cent while the national rate at 61.8 per cent was down by .2 per cent. Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@ sasktel.net

She says it is a rewarding experience for students. “We’ve been working on different things for Remembrance Day, this being the 100th commemoration of the ending of WW1.

Official book launch heldRandy forPalmer ‘From Darkness to Light’ anthology - Moose Jaw Express ‘From Darkness to Light’ could easily be described as a labour of love for the Moose Jaw Night Writers. The anthology book features a series of poems, stories and tales written by the local writing group, with the book coming together over the span of three years before being officially published on Aug. 16. The Night Writers held an official book launch on Oct. 27 at Mitsu Sweet Cafe, with a host of the book’s contributors reading selections from their stories. “It’s everything from slam poetry, stories, every type of writing,” explained Night Writers founder and From Darkness to Light editor Christina Ritchie. “We welcome anyone who does any type of writing, so we get a lot of writers from all sorts of backgrounds and that really came through in this book.” The book features stories from 15 members of the group, which came into existence back in 2014 as a compliment to the long-running Prairie Pens morning writing group. Ritchie and fellow Pens member Melanie McFarlane felt an evening option might prove to be popular, and it wasn’t long before their idea proved correct.
The Moose Jaw Night Writers held a book launch for their anthology ‘From Darkness to Light’ at Mitsu Sweet Cafe on Oct. 27, featuring a host of writers reading selections from the book. On hand that afternoon were Mark Fenton (from left), Tim Alton, Nicole Pivovar, Nick Steele, Steve Nicholl, Lisa Goudy, Drew Nicks, Cory Kutschker, Lori Lancaster and Christina Ritchie. Missing are Terri Bosner, Sean Broadchest, Tina Dolcetti and Brenda Rosenberg. “We started meeting at coffee places and then we got too big, there were around 14 of us,” Ritchie explained. “Then we talked to the library and they said we could rent a room for free and we’ve been here ever since.” The Night Writers meet the second Thursday of every month at 7 p.m. in the upstairs South Room, with “four to 12 to 15 people” taking part in each session depending upon their availability.
It was one of these meetings that proved the genesis of From Darkness to Light – the majority of writers who eventually contributed to the book were on hand that evening, and the traditional ‘freewrite’ start brought out some exceptional results. “I can’t remember what the topic was, but the idea is just to get the creative juices flowing,” Ritchie said. “I said to them after ‘wow, you guys are wonder-
ful, you’re awesome writers... we should do something to get your work out there’. Some of them had been published at the time; some of them hadn’t, and they all just wanted to get their work out there. So, we came up with the idea for this, an anthology.” And so it began, with the anthology’s contributors starting the writing process. It ended up taking around three years for everything to come together, from receiving submissions to completing the editing process. In the end, McNally Robinson came on as the book’s publisher, and it’s currently for sale at their stores in Saskatoon and Regina, as well as on the mcnallyrobinson.com website. “Our big goal is to support each others’ writing,” Ritchie explained. “I always say ‘what do you want to do with your writing? Do you want to get it out, what do you want to do with it?’ And we do what we can to help our members make that happen. “It’s neat when you see your stuff published and that’s what I wanted everyone to be able to see.”

Greyhound in The Dog Pound
When the news broke that Greyhound Bus Lines would no longer be servicing Western Canada, I thought to myself that there will be a lot of hitchhiking happening. Then I had a sickening thought… that there will be a lot of hitchhiking happening. by Dale “bushy” Bush Yikes! Hopefully that will work itself out. With the good old interwwweb, it might actually be a better way for folks who need rides to connect with people who have room to give rides. This is a huge change for a lot of Western Canadians. I have always been lucky enough to be able to be one of those who can drive or fly to my destinations but there have been a few times when the old grey dog has gotten me to jobs that were “out of the way” in a timely manner. Once I had a gig as a single performer for a week in Williams Lake B.C. I only had an old van that I wasn’t sure would make the trip; besides, I wouldn’t have left my wife and young son without wheels for a week, so it was an easy decision to hop on the “dog” and ride, wait and transfer for a 12-hour trip from Salmon Arm. Had I driven, it would have only been a four-hour drive
but I could have stayed in the van and saved on a hotel room…$igh. The ride on the bus was filled with surprising advantages over driving. I actually made a list in a journal I used to keep for song writing ideas. Relaxation seemed to be high on that list and I appreciated seeing the scenery and not having to worry about driving, so I was easily able to “Leave the driving to us” which was a Greyhound slogan forever. While I was leaving the driving to them, I was not only able to enjoy the view and scenery on the outside of my window but on the inside, as well. The cross section of folks who were Greyhound patrons were immensely entertaining. For a confirmed people-watcher like myself, it was a “folk” festival. I have always tried to play the game of “detective” and I would wonder what an individual’s story was depending on my often wrong first impressions, erroneous clothing assumptions or flawed behaviour observations. If I was to say I was like Sherlock Holmes, I would be the liarest liar that ever lied. It is going to be different not seeing the big grey buses on the streets and highways. After 89 years of operation and a changing ridership, it seems change was inevitable. When it becomes non-profitable for a large operation that has tried many ways to be economical, companies will run out of patience and that can create opportunities for other entrepre-
neurs. I can see smaller operators using the interwwweb to arrange ride-and-share options. As well, I have heard of provincial and the federal governments offering assistance to entrepreneurs to establish route coverage, particularly in the North. What is even more exciting is the opportunities for Indigenous Communities to operate bus services that can be unique to their needs. We all need to work, shop, visit doctors and hospitals. Even more importantly, to be able to visit friends and relatives easily and in comfort. Every one of these smaller market businesses will be able to offer and respond to their individual clients and that is a major improvement over the large corporate atmosphere. Once again, it seems that Western Canada gets a lemon, and at the moment it seems like there may be some delicious lemonade being made from that lemon. Care for a taste?

Exhibition hosting annual light show on Dec. 8 Matthew Gourlie
The Moose Jaw Exhibition Company will kick-off the holiday season with a festival of lights. The Exhibition’s fourth annual indoor light show will take place at the Golden Mile Arena on Saturday, Dec. 8. There will be two shows, one at 1 p.m. and again at 3 p.m. The event is free of charge. The light show will feature performances from two local groups, The Moose Jaw Dog Club and the Over the Top Vaulters, a local equestrian club. “We’ll have a presentation by the Moose Jaw vaulting club, which is a horse club, and it’s sort of like gymnastics on horses. We had them last year and we really enjoyed them,” said George Fowler, general manager of the Moose Jaw Exhibition Company. “We’ll be doing some Christ-
mas songs and we’ll have a presentation by the Moose Jaw Dog Club and they’ll be doing some agility performances.” The show will conclude with the light show as a light display set to music is unveiled. “At the end of the event we will have one whole wall of lights that we have done up and this year’s theme is Christmas Around the World,” Fowler said. The indoor light show continues to grow in popularity and size. “It’s a little weather dependent,” Fowler said about previous attendance. “Even though it’s indoors, people still have to get here. So, we’re hoping for good weather. That’s why we went to the two afternoon shows, so that people can get here in the daylight.”

A better way to resolve labour -management disputes must exist Labour unrest across North America should be expected as unions use their muscle to re-gain lost share of by Ron Walter the national income. In the U.S., labour’s share of the national income has fallen from 67 per cent in 1970 to 61 per cent in 2017. By contrast, business share of profits has increased from around nine per cent in 1970 to 13 per cent in 2017 – nearly a one-half increase. In Canada, the statistics on share of the income pie don’t differ much. So, it is no surprise if labour gets more militant and we see more labour strikes/lockouts in the next few years. Labour unions feel a need to re-gain lost income share. Every strike has its own particular issues as with the Moose Jaw Co-op strike, but the general pattern is the same. Given the length of the Co-op strike, employees will take a long time to recoup wages lost from the strike. That time frame will be even longer, if, as often happens, strike pay must be repaid. The Co-op business operations suffer as well. This year’s $400,000 plus patronage dividends may be at peril. Once the strike has been settled the Co-op will have to re-gain lost business. Anecdotal evidence suggests some loyal Co-op customers have found a
new home for future purchases. Labour has come a long way from the days when business hired goons and thugs to stop unions from forming or exercising the hard won right to strike. Those were barbaric times. Tough as those times were, they eventually led to labour legislation guarding rights of workers from minimum wages to hours of work, holidays and safety. In today’s world, it can be argued that strikes and lockouts are a little barbaric. Certainly, there are no immediate winners from either strikes or lockouts — other than in principle. Principle does not pay bills. There ought to be a better way to settle disputes than by strikes or lockouts. In the 1960s, Saskatchewan Premier Ross Thatcher suggested a better way to solve labour disputes. His idea was a labour court hearing evidence from both sides and resolving the matter with a judgment. He was vilified by union supporters only 25 years away from winning the right to strike. Now that unions are 75 years away from winning the right to strike and the bitterness of that battle has eased, the labour court plan might be more acceptable. A labour court would be a form of arbitration. Arbitration as currently practised is not that bad for labour. In the case of the City of Moose Jaw recent arbitrations have solidly supported labour claims. A labour court could end costly labour and business disruptions and more evenly distribute the national income. Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@ sasktel.net
Things back to normal at Moose Jaw Co-op Moose Jaw Co-op has successfully reached a new collective agreement with its union, UFCW Local 1400. Employees voted in favour of accepting Co-op’s offer, and have returned to work, as of Thursday, November 8th, after 36 days of job action. “We’re pleased an agreement was reached that was fair to both parties,” expressed Gerry Onyskevitch, General Manager of Moose Jaw Co-op. The new agreement preserves the wage scale that was negotiated for new employees in the previous collective agreement, a point that was critical to the long-term competitiveness of Moose Jaw Co-op. “Our final offer reduces the wage difference between longer-term employees and those hired more recently,” explained Onyskevitch. “That’s ultimately what led to this deal.” Moose Jaw Co-op is looking forward to welcoming employees back and extends its gratitude to those employees who continued working during the strike, as well as replacement workers and managers who stepped up to ensure the Co-op could continue to serve the community. “We genuinely thank customers and members who supported us throughout the strike,” said Onyskevitch. “For those of you who took your business elsewhere because of the strike, we welcome you back and ask that you give us another opportunity to serve you.”

Ken Grey, New Leader of Sask. Progressive Conservatives Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express
Reginaâ€™s Ken Grey knows he has plenty of work ahead of him, as the new leader of the Progressive Conservative Party of Saskatchewan. Grey won the position during the leadership convention held in Moose Jaw during the Nov. 3rd weekend, where he received 77 per cent of the vote to defeat Estevanâ€™s Paul Carroll. That win came directly on the heels of his quest to claim the vacant seat in the Regina Northeast byelection, a race where he finished a distant third with only 2.8 per cent of the vote. That run-off showed just where things sit in general when it comes to â€˜third-partyâ€™ status in Saskatchewan, something Grey is hoping to change now that heâ€™s the face of the PCs. â€œWeâ€™re going to go out and talk to folks in the province; itâ€™s going to be a huge job and we have a lot of building to do and a lot of work to do before the next
election,â€? Grey said from the Heritage Inn meeting room shortly after his win was announced. â€œMy goal is to have a full slate of candidates and if we donâ€™t do that, itâ€™s not much point. So weâ€™re going to go out and find them.â€? Grey takes over as party leader from Moose Jawâ€™s Rick Swenson, who held the position for 12 years and finished fifth in the 2016 provincial election. Originally from Saskatoon, Grey spent most of his life working in health care fields, first as a special care aide for 10 years and then as a technologist at a sleep disorders clinic. Heâ€™s currently a driver for Regina Paratransit. Now that the leadership convention is over, putting together policy and planning for the election is the next step in building toward 2020. â€œI want to see a fiscally conservative option for Saskatchewan because we donâ€™t have one,â€? Grey said. â€œWe have a big

Party government and an even bigger-spending NDP opposition. So, when it comes to a fiscally responsible approach to our finances, we donâ€™t have one right now and we have to offer that.â€?
Getting into the position where thatâ€™s possible is going to be half the battle. â€œIt always has to be a continuous process of building,â€? Grey said. â€œTimes change, people change, positions change, we have to make sure we adapt and roll with those changes over the years. . . Thereâ€™s going to be a bunch of kids coming out of university with their first jobs and each year thereâ€™s a new crop looking for work and we have to be there for them. â€œI envision a grassroots movement and a very different type of party.â€? For the next little while, though, Grey will be looking to take a bit of time to gather his bearings after a pair of long campaigns. â€œIâ€™m going to take a day or two to relax and re-introduce myself to my family and then weâ€™re going to start the whole process of building,â€? he said. â€œThatâ€™s next week, thatâ€™s where it begins.â€?

Burrowing Owl Interpretive Centre hosting annual fundraiser Matthew Gourlie
The Saskatchewan Burrowing Owl Interpretive Centre’s annual fundraiser is going to be a hoot. The 18th annual event will be held at the Moose Jaw Exhibition Convention Centre on Saturday, Nov. 24. The event will feature dinner, an auction and entertainment. “Doug Arden is coming in and we’re also having a community group, Cheer Infinity Athletics; they’re going to put on a performance for us,” said Moose Jaw Exhibition Company general manager George Fowler. It is the first time Arden has been part of the fundraiser. “He does a little comedy, he’s a ventriloquist and a magician. He does a little bit of everything in the show,” Fowler said. The fundraiser is an important part of keeping the Interpretive Centre’s bottom line healthy for the upcoming year. “It is the Centre’s major fundraiser of the year,” said owl coordinator Lori Johnson, from the Saskatchewan Burrowing Owl Interpretive Centre. “All of the proceeds that we raise over the course of the evening go back directly to the care and upkeep of our owls, as well as the continuation of our travelling educational program, the Owls On Tour.” The Owls On Tour outreach program runs year round and provides environmental education for students across the
province. “We have two ambassador owls at the moment that are currently doing the tour,” Johnson said. “They take turns and we’re just in the process of raising another little guy, so he’s going to be under-going some training and hopefully will be in the rotation next year.”
Burrowing owls are endangered in Canada. The Interpretive Centre opened in 1997 on the Exhibition Grounds at a site where a pair of owls were already nesting -- on the infield of the racetrack. There are currently nine burrowing owls, a short-eared owl and Richardson’s ground squirrel at the Interpretive Centre right now. “With the owls there are always some ups and downs,” Johnson said. “Some of our owls have gotten to the age where we’re expecting some problems to occur, as with anybody who ages, but other than that our attendance was good during our spring and summer months and we’re keeping busy with the Owls On Tour.” In addition to the fundraiser, the Interpretive Centre also has an Adopt an Owl program. While the program does run year-round, interest grows as the holidays approach. “It’s especially popular during the festive season because it makes a wonderful gift, both to give and to receive,” Johnson said. Doors for the event open at 5:30 p.m. and dinner begins at 6 p.m. There will be silent auction items and a penny parade. Tickets are $40 per person or corporate tables of eight are available for $300. Tickets are available in advance at the Moose Jaw Exhibition Company administration office.
Lower ag exports can be offset by expanded market access By Ron Walter For Agri-Mart Express
EXPRESS Lower prices for farm commodities in 2018 could threaten the value of agricultural exports from Canada. A Farm Credit Canada agricultural economics report indicates four factors that can disrupt ag exports. Reduced soy prices from tariff wars have trickled down to dampen canola prices. More than 80 per cent of Canada’s pork exports are shipped to China, Japan and
the U.S. These buyers sometimes postpone purchases in time of price volatility. Pork prices have declined. Beef exports to Canada’s largest customer, the United States, may shift to the extent that consumers substitute lower priced pork for beef. Hong Kong is expected to offset lower beef exports to China and Japan. Wheat exports may suffer a little from price volatility but not as much as meat exports. The key to a shift in commodity prices is developing expanded access to markets
like Africa and Europe. North Africa offers potential for wheat exports while Europe needs more canola for the bio-diesel program. Germany, Italy, United Kingdom and France are among the world’s largest importers of beef. Yet none are big buyers from Canada. The Comprehensive Economic Trade Agreement offers improved market access. Hong Kong and South Korean markets offer promise. In 2017, Canadian agricultural exports hit
$46.2 billion. Oilseeds, cereals and meats amounted to 41 per cent of exports. Each had a nice year-over-year increase with cereals up 11.6 per cent, canola up 9.4 per cent and meat exports up 6.6 per cent. Fish and crustaceans at $4.8 billion were the fourth largest agricultural export, followed by vegetables at $4.5 billion. Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@ sasktel.net

Art group changing perceptions of disability Matthew Gourlie
The best art is supposed to make you feel and make you think. Neither Heroes nor Ordinary People strives to do both. The production, put on by Listen to Dis’ Community Arts Organization Inc.’s company of emerging professional artists, The Other Ordinary, stopped in Moose Jaw recently. Listen to Dis’ is Saskatchewan’s only disability-led disability arts organization. The Moose Jaw stop of Neither Heroes nor Ordinary People at the Mae Wilson Theatre was their fifth and final stop, on a provincial tour that led performer John Loeppky to “really be able to see the wide appeal this show has.” “People consistently walk away saying ‘hmmmm…not only did I not think about disability that way, I didn’t think about art that way.’ For some, they didn’t think about body and movement that way,” said Loeppky who is the associate artistic director of Listen to Dis’. “There are many different things that people take away from the show, but at the root are some universal themes: the want to belong; the want to be understood; the want to be cared for and the want to move in a way that feels comfortable. These are all things that I think strike human beings.” Loeppky has been there from the show’s genesis during a theatre class at the University of Regina called “Devising Inclusive Theatre” in 2015. Listen to Dis’ founder and artistic director Traci Foster
John Loeppky, third from left, and the rest of The Other Ordinary perform “Neither Heroes nor Ordinary People” at the Mae Wilson Theatre. co-taught the class with Dr. Kathleen Irwin, who was the head of the theatre department at the time. “The university wanted to find a way to make their spaces more inclusive in programming because there was an influx of people with disabilities wanting to perform and theatre hasn’t always been the most inclusive environment,” Loeppky said. There were six people in the class and through writing prompts and elements of voice and movement from visiting artists that spoke to the class, Neither Heroes nor Ordinary People was created by the class at the end of the term. “You know, it’s a class. You never know where something is going to go. Originally it was just a show that you put on at the
end of a class,” Loeppky said. “We were invited to perform as part of the Cathedral Village Festival and from there, for lack of a better term, it took off. We’ve been performing it ever since. We performed it as part of the Shumiatcher Sandbox series at the Globe Theatre, where it went through further development.” The group of performers has evolved over time, but the vision remains the same: to shift the way people perceive disability, through art, performance and authentic expression. The poster for the show shares a sentiment: “We are not interested in your pity or sympathy; we are comfortable in our own skin.” “The show deals with things like expectations of what is — I’m not going to say normal — but typical movement,” ex-
plained Loeppky. “One of the first lines of my monologue is: ‘contrary to what some of you may believe, I am capable of using my legs — albeit very slowly, occasionally and inconsistently’ after I have just stood up out of my wheelchair having danced around. “It’s a little bit about bumping convention and really bringing forward what it’s like to live in the contemporary world with a disability.” Loeppky was pleased with the performance to conclude the tour and the interaction with the audience. “We have a talk back after every show and it was lively, and people were interested,” he said. “We always come out and talk to people in the lobby and there was a real connection, I felt.” The tour may be over but Listen to Dis’ has no shortage of projects that they’re working on. They continue to work with the community to insure a more inclusive future for people living with disabilities -- both visible and invisible -- in the arts scene and elsewhere. “We hold weekly community programming,” Loeppky said. “We do workshops and training opportunities. We also do what we call ‘disability audits’ where we come in and talk about how organizations can make their programming and their environments more inclusive. “We’re starting to branch into youth programming, as well, so we have a lot of things on the go.”

Little (tech) hub on the prairie By: Patricia Bruce
With all the hype about Amazonâ€™s search for a second, high-technology headquarters, we wondered about Saskatchewanâ€™s technology opportunities. So what exactly is a TECH HUB? Cities that are home to companies who manufacture cutting-edge,advanced computer electronics are considered high technology hubs â€“ or Tech Hubs for short. But high-tech success has its limits â€“ unaffordable housing, streets jumbled with traffic jams and high cost of living. So many companies are looking to locate in smaller communities. What about high-tech companies here in Saskatchewan? We discovered a significant Tech Hub located in our back yard â€“ at Elbow, Saskatchewan (situated on scenic Lake Diefenbaker). And talk about home grown! Twenty one years ago, when Elbowâ€™s only school was shut down by the government, several motivated local investors formed a plan to utilize the now-empty school and turn it into a viable business. And soon
Commutron Industries was born. Their goal? To produce computer chipsâ€Ś With low overhead, automation and dedicated staff, they provide custom chip manufacturing that saves time, energy and capital. With a small start-up staff of only 5 local townsfolk staffing has now increased to 29 employees. Communtron strives to hire employees within Elbow and surrounding areas. This yearâ€™s sales forecast is calculated to be a ten-fold increase above their start-up date. We spoke to one of the long-term investors, Bill Elliott, of Moose Jaw, who highlighted
Communtron Industriesâ€™ ability to serve many sectors: communications, mining, transportation, instrumentation, aviation, consumer goods and more. In addition to Alberta clients, Communtronâ€™s manufacturing helped Saskatoon firms, such as: 1. IRD (International Road Dynamics) 2. Start Co. (Littlefuse) Nowadays, many tech jobs and tech companies are moving out of major cities, and spreading their wings around the country. And Saskatchewan has a secret tech company thatâ€™s more than willing to feather some up-and-coming technology nests.

Countryâ€™s largest telecom company has attractive yield Canadaâ€™s largest telecommunications company, BCE Inc., dates back to the 1870s when Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephone. Affectionately called Ma Bell, the company has been referred to off- and-on as a â€˜widows and orphansâ€™ stock â€” a stock with a good dividend return and never really declining much in price. As the telecom business developed, BCE changed from a supplier of the house phone and business phone everybody had, into a company also providing hi-tech internet connections, wireless phone services and data services. Competing with Rogers Communications and Shaw, BCE has operations in seven provinces offering all its services. With a market value of almost $48 billion, BCE is one of the largest public companies in Canada. Most of its revenues come from traditional land lines, although this part of operations provides only 36 per cent of profits. Thirty-six per cent of revenues and profits come from the wireless segment Eleven per cent of revenues and profits come from the
media division, which includes the CTV network, TSN sports, BNN/Bloomberg, other specialty channels and the CRAVE TV offering that competes with Netflix. About 17 per cent of profits come from voice data services. So far this year, all divisions have increased subscribers, except for the land lines. Having fallen every year for years, the land line connections declined by 6.8 per cent to Sept. 30 for 3.1 million subscribers. Wireless connections grew 5.3 per cent to 9.5 million while internet services increased 3.8 per cent to 3.9 million. Viewers of the television services grew a mere .6 per cent to 2.8 million. Land lines and television are the companyâ€™s Achilles Heels. Land line connections and revenues are in a longterm fall. Television has difficulties attracting and retaining viewers as people spend more time on internet services such as YouTube, Facebook, or Netflix. Perhaps this explains why BCE is investing heavily into
Â Â?Â?Â?Â Â?
the Crave TV operation. Wireless and data services are the companyâ€™s strongest sectors with continued growth expected as well as continual investment. At a current price of $53.40, BCE is close to its bottom of $50.72 for the year and well off the $62.90 high. The dividend yields an attractive 5.7 per cent with regular increases. The payout equals 82 per cent of free cash flow. The company has more debt than equity by a margin of $24.4 billion to $21.43 billion. And the annual $3.20 dividend is greater than last yearâ€™s $3.02 earnings. Still, BCE is a stable company dominating telecom in Canada. No longer a â€˜widows and orphansâ€™ stock, simply because of ever changing technology and loss of land lines, BCE is worth investigating.

Sask. producers can be part of solution in carbon fight AGRIMART
EXPRESS According to an Angus Reid poll released on Nov. 1, the federal government’s carbon tax has the least amount of support in Saskatchewan compared to any other province. That finding won’t shock any Saskatchewan residents, but at the Agricultural Producers Association of Saskatchewan’s district meeting held a day earlier in Moose Jaw, there was a belief that Saskatchewan can be a key player in finding solutions to fight emissions. “Through things like zero till, farmers are sequestering carbon. They’re sequestering millions of tons of carbon every year through their activities. And that doesn’t have any recognition from decision-makers in addressing the problem. That’s been our message: we’re not part of the problem, we’re a big part of the solution and governments need to shift away the thought of using those tools like taxes to address a problem,” said Duane Haave, general manager of the Agricultural Producers Association of Saskatchewan. “If you actually created an incentive for producers to grow certain crops or sequester carbon or develop new varieties that sequester carbon or plant trees or manage grasslands, we can actually meet our Paris targets faster than putting a tax on what doesn’t actually solve the problem. “That’s the frustration that producers have. We are doing good things and we could do a lot more. Let’s have that conversation, not the negative conversation.” No-till, or zero tillage farming, is an old idea that not only keeps carbon in the land but can also have a large environmental impact on water management. With crop prices down, producers are concerned about how the carbon tax will affect their bottom line at a time when margins at tightening. “The exemptions that were announced last week in the federal backstop plan don’t cover all of the costs that producers have,” Haave said. “They exempt the farm fuel, on farm, but they don’t include the fuel for shipping your grain to the elevator or the fuel used by the railway company or natural gas or propane costs for heating buildings or drying grain. Fertilizer uses natural gas, so the Yara plant here will have to pass along their extra cost for carbon tax to producers in fertilizer cost. “There isn’t any way for farmers to pass that cost along through the chain, because
Matthew Gourlie they don’t set their prices. It’s just an added cost and that’s always an issue with producers when you have an added cost.” Haave said that seeing the carbon tax turned into a partisan, political issue is unfortunate. “That’s not really where we’re at as an industry across Canada,” he said. “It’s more crucial than some political jockeying. It’s about whether you have the margin you need to execute your farm.” Haave said that they need policy-makers to respect that crop soil make for strong carbon sinks in the prairies and that these policies could have unintended negative Duane Haave, general manager of the Agricultural Producers Association impacts. “We don’t talk about the importance of our of Saskatchewan, speaks at the APAS native prairie.

If the pro“Because of improved crop varieties, bevincial government can help with getting past that initial burden and help with the financing so that the energy savings basically pay off the loan, that will really help with the roll-out of greening our provincial footprint,” Pedersen said. “I was actually on a farm this morning... and he has quite an array of solar panels. On my family farm, my sister has quite an array of solar panels, she has wind turbines, so there are a lot of opportunities. Farmers are some of the most innovative and creative people out there. We just need to make sure that everyone is marching in that direction and I think there are a lot of ways that we can accomplish that.” One of the other big topics of conversation at the district meeting was the transportation issues that producers have faced with getting their product shipped by rail. “Railways sometimes will ship other things than grain because they know that grain will still be there,” Haave said. “There’s no alternative for farmers to the
cause of improved management and the fact that producers now invest heavily in a crop to get that higher yield, we are constantly having above-average crops,” Haave said. “So, if the railways estimate that they’re hauling a certain amount and it turns out to be 20 per cent higher or 15 per cent higher, they don’t have the plan there to actually get that stuff moving. That’s almost a permanent condition, we don’t ever have a crop the size it was 20 or even 10 years ago. We have to adjust the whole system to meet that difference.” Crop transportation is hardly a new problem for Saskatchewan producers, but as with many of the issues facing modern farmers, the problems are the same, but the scale and the money involved is a lot larger. “They have a captive product. It’s been a challenge since farming started, but the volumes are bigger and the downside is bigger. It’s in the billions of dollars when stuff doesn’t get shipped and people need to pay their bills,” Haave said. Olivia Zuck, the young agricultural producer researcher for APAS, made a presentation at the meeting about her research into succession planning for farms and how Saskatchewan will transition from an aging farm population. The number of Saskatchewan farmers who were 55-and-older in 1991 was 35.4 per cent and in the 2016 census that was 54.9 per cent. Zuck noted that the trend towards there being larger farms and fewer farmers working the land continues to grow.

Rotary Carol Festival still accepting talent Matthew Gourlie
It’s a venerable Moose Jaw holiday tradition and the Rotary Carol Festival still has room for interested singers, musicians and choirs to take part this year. Lorene LeBere from the Rotary Carol Festival said that the response for the 73rd annual event has been good, but they still have room to add more talented performers -- be they vocal or instrumental -- before the Nov. 21 deadline. “I’m pleased with the response so far, but we could use a few more,” LeBere said. “A lot of the high schools have already registered, but we still have room for more people if they’re interested.” The festival has a core group of choirs and performers who return year after year, but the festival also offers a great opportunity for other groups to perform in front of a large and warm
audience. “It gives them a chance to perform publicly and to listen to each other perform,” LeBere said. “It’s a nice start to the Christmas season, I find.” This year’s Rotary Carol Festival will take place from Dec. 10-12. Each night typically features seven different groups. LeBere said they will welcome any groups of any size that want to take part. Beginning in 1945, the Festival has become a local holiday tradition. “It’s been going on so long,” LeBere said. “A lot of people in Moose Jaw remember performing themselves or watching their kids or grandkids perform. It’s nice because the audience gets to participate in the carol singing between the performances as well.” Any individuals or groups interested in performing can contact Lorene at email@example.com by Nov. 21.

The Salvation Army donation stations set up at stores throughout the city, seeking support for the annual Kettle Campaign and their ongoing work to make sure every family can celebrate the holidays. This year’s campaign kicks off on Nov. 26 in front of Superstore and runs until Dec. 24, as part of their ongoing mission to supply Christmas hampers to families in need. The kettles are located in prominent retail outlets throughout the city and are staffed by a small army of volunteers – an army that Maj. Broome is looking to build as you read this. Broome estimated that over 100 would be needed to fully cover the long line of shifts. The support has traditionally been there, though, augmented by service club members lending a hand to fill any openings. The drive hopes to bring more volunteers in to fill the void. The money that is donated through the kettle campaign goes back to the families that need it in the community. Although the number that was previously printed in last week’s article on the front page of the Moose Jaw Express for the Salvation Army church was correct, the Salvation Army would appreciate anyone calling for more information on the Kettle Campaign or to volunteer, to contact 306.692.5899.

Dragoons receive new guidon, battle honour in special ceremony
Event sees new flag and Afghanistan theatre honour bestowed on local military unit Randy Palmer Moose Jaw Express
The Saskatchewan Dragoons have a long and storied history regarding their presence in Canadian military engagements dating back to the First World War – a history that has long been represented on the unit’s battle flag, or guidon. That history has had greater significance with additions in modern times. The Dragoons were one of many military reservist units called to service during the Afghanistan conflict, serving many roles and occasionally seeing combat. It was with that in mind that the decision was made to update the Dragoons’ guidon, a decision that became reality on Nov. 3 when a special consecration ceremony and the presentation of the Afghanistan Theatre Honour was held in 2 Hanger at 15 Wing. The event featured a host of dignitaries, both military and civilian, including Lt. Gov. Tom Molloy and a contingent from the Royal Canadian Rifles band from Winnipeg. Seeing as the Dragoons first received their guidon in 1970, bringing in a replacement has been in the cards for some time, said Saskatchewan Dragoons commanding officer Maj. Gillian Dulle. “We’ve had the same guidon ever since, so it’s been 48 1/2 years and like anything that we have, it does see wear and tear,” she said. “The guidon is our most sacred possession; it really does represent all the sacrifices that soldiers who came before us have made and it represents all the courageous action the 46th Battalion had in the First
World War.” The Dragoons have had 22 soldiers deployed to Afghanistan – Dulle herself served two tours – in 12 years of Canadian Forces operations. Their work has included everything from combat operations in the Battle Group to training the Afghan National Army and police forces and heavy support roles. One of those latter roles was filled by Sgt. Jon Barth, who served as part of the guidon guard on Saturday afternoon. As a convoy commander for a force protection platoon, he found himself leading operations to transfer equipment throughout the battle space and also worked to keep routes clear – something that included dealing with the aftermath of IED attacks. “So we saw the entire war top to bottom, because we supplied everybody, and we saw a lot,” Barth said. Having that experience and to see he and his fellow troops now officially represented on the guidon was an emotional moment for all involved in the ceremony. “It’s a tremendous honour and extremely meaningful to me personally,” Barth said. “We haven’t had a battle honour put on the guidon since World War I and to finally have a new honour, one that I was a big part of earning, is extremely emotional and rewarding.” Dulle felt much the same way.
The Saskatchewan Dragoons march into Hangar 2 at 15 Wing to begin the guidon ceremony.
“To see the Afghanistan theatre on our guidon brings with it a relevance to the soldiers who deployed, but also a relevance to battle honours that we just as proudly display on our guidon that are now 100 years old,” she said. “It’s a tremendous recognition and honour.” The new guidon will be stored in the senior mess ranks at the D.V. Currie Armoury. The old battle standard’s fate has yet to be determined, but it’s expected it will be put on permanent display in City Hall.

Berit ‘Betsy’ Duzan
Moving to Saskatchewan was a busy time for Grandma Betsy by Jean Duzan Schnitzler (Jean is the granddaughter of Berit ‘Betsy’ Duzan)
Lloyd recently told me of his story of the events of the afternoon. He was seven years of age, alone with Grandpa and Grandma. He knew that something sad was happening as Grandpa was sitting next to Grandmas bed crying. He hid under the table out of sight watching as the event unfolded. Grandpa then laid his head on Grandma Betsy’s chest sobbing. Lloyd then crept out and stood at Grandpas side and wept. He went outside and sat in the shade pondering what had taken place. Grandma was a lady who accepted her cross and praised God all the days of her life. The diabetes eventually took her eyesight, but neither blindness nor the crippling stopped her from tending her patients. She passed away on Nov.1, 1929. (Picture) Anna Aas-Nick Johnson-Betsy Arntson Duzan. Betsy’s sister and brother. My cousin Lloyd also shared a bit of his memories of Grandma Betsy and Great grandma Magdalena. He said that Grandma Betsy was very sick and in bed but she was always singing. His only memory of Grandma Magdalena was that she lived in Uncle Nick’s abandoned sod house that was in the same yard as the new house. He would go to see her and she would have cookies for him. On February 22, 2016, Lloyd passed away in Calgary AB at the age of 94. Our many visits with him were rewarding. He shared numerous family stories with me and played his fiddle. On November 1, 1929 Johanna ‘Duzan’ Stianson was living with her mom and dad, Betsy and Marshall. Lloyd’s story of that afternoon unravels; His mother, Johanna and a friend were going out visiting that afternoon and taking Lloyd, Ethyl and Mildred with her. Lloyd did not want to go so hid under the bed. He refused to answer when his mom called so she left without him. Lloyd was seven years old at that time. He knew that grandma Betsy was not well and had been in bed for a lengthy time requiring help with everything. He was alone with Grandpa and Grandma knew that something sad was happening. He heard grandpa say, “OH NO, Betsy”! He laid his head on her chest crying. Lloyd then crept out and stood at Grandpas side and cried too. Lloyd knew that grandma had died and didn’t know what to do. He said he got really scared because he thought someone turned on a bright light and there was only a coal oil lamp in the room and it wasn’t even lit. “Then I started crying and rubbing my eyes”. He then slowly crept out of the house going to the barn and sat in the hay for a long time. Uncle Earl came home and put the horses in the barn. He picked Lloyd up and they went inside together to the bedroom. Grandpa, Uncle Earl and Rose-Earl-Eva-Johanna-Winfield-Be- Lloyd put their arms around each other and cried. Sadly, Grandma Betsy had ret ‘Betsy’ & Marshall Duzan Along with seven children, housework and farm chores, she was a Mid-wife. Family and neighbours called on her to assist in the birth of their children and to help with medical problems. Also because of the times, Betsy did not charge for her service; there just wasn’t cash to pay the bills. Sometimes there was a package handed to her when she left. Opening the package on her arrival home, she would find a cut of meat, a couple links of sausage or a loaf of homebaked bread. She said that if her family would have found that she had been given a loaf of store-bought bread it was a real treat. The community welcomed Grandma Betsy with open arms. Dad told me that Grandma often called on him for help. Earl gets the horses hitched. Whether it was day or night, she prepared her medical bag while Dad harnessed the horse. In summer he would hitch it to the buggy. In the winter it was a sleigh, and he would warm a quilt for his mother so that she was more comfortable for the drive. “I was Mom’s designated driver,” he said. In the early 1920s, Grandma Betsy was diagnosed with diabetes. As the years passed, she suffered greatly. There was little or no help for the dreaded disease, and the diabetes took its toll. Due to poor circulation, infection set in and part of her heel and some of her toes had to be amputated. She was then unable to walk but learned to get around on crutches. Even though she required help to get out, she would not refuse aid to anyone who sought her help. A short while before her death, a neighbour came in a rush. His wife was trying to deliver her baby. The man was afraid he was going to lose his wife and child. Betsy could not refuse. She had to have someone help her out of bed, dress her and carry her out to the buggy. The team was urged to run as quickly as possible. It was a matter of life and death. She later said that God was with them, and He was given the praise for saving mother and baby. In September 1929, Marshall and Betsy Duzan’s daughter, Johanna was in an unhappy marriage relationship and returned home with her three children not knowing what to do with her life. She was welcome and helped tend to her mother necessities. She and the two girls were away the afternoon Betsy passed away.

passed away. Earl had seen a falling star as he was nearing home. His mother had told him years ago that if you saw a falling star it meant that someone had died. When he got home his mother was dead. Dad said the pain was like fire searing through his body. Grandma Betsy passed away before I was born, I know her only through the stories my parents shared. Both Mom and Dad shared a lot of great stories as to who my grandmother was. Dad spoke affectionately of his mother. He said she was happy, cheerful and kind person who never spoke ill of anyone. She was a giving, sharing lady. Regardless of her heavy load, she sang throughout the day. Her voice could be overheard echoing into the night. When I listen closely, I can hear the echoes today and I know that she is safe and happy waiting to greet her loved ones who are following in her footsteps. –Jean Duzan BERET (ARNTSON) BETSY DUZAN July 10, 1862—Oct. 31, 1929 No story of Wenaus homesteading days would be complete without reference to an easygoing, colorful woman, who meant so much in the lives of the community, Beret Duzan. In those difficult days when there was no doctor within several miles and no telephone, she was often called on to act as midwife. She was self-taught. Her son Earl most often hitched the buggy and drove her to her destination. People came from far and near to fetch her and she always left her work and stayed until things were under control or if nearby, made daily visits to bathe the baby and see that all was well, despite the fact that she had a large family of her own she made time for all who were in need of medical care.
Betsy was small in stature but led in spirit and confidence. Even after the arrival of a doctor at Verwood and Assiniboia, she was called to assist. She and her husband, Marshall Duzan and family came to Canada in 1912, and settled on a homestead which he had secured the year before, in what was later known as Wenaus district. Marshall was born in Kentucky and was a strong, quiet man. At the beginning of the settlement, there was a midwife in, an aunt by marriage, Mrs. Emilia Nelson, and the two were often called to work together until Mr. and Mrs. Engebrit Nelson, who had inspired settlers to come to Wenaus, left for Kalispell, Montana, where they spent their declining years. Beret was then mostly on her own in this rather frightening job of welcoming babies under primitive conditions. Because of her knowledge of medicine, she got called out on many jobs. Literally, countless of babies were brought into the world by this courageous, cheerful little woman and many a day was brightened by her arrival on the scene. Her special kindness to children was one of her outstanding characteristics. Her lovely singing voice echoed through the quietness of the open terrain told of another talent she was blessed with. I yearn to have known my Grandma Betsy personally. She passed away before I was born. Betsy claimed to be psychic and was never surprised when there was a death in the district. She had been forewarned by some sign, like a light in the cemetery or an unexplained knock on the door, or a feeling deep inside. As other languages gave way to English, the use of the version of her name, Betsy, was used. Most of the people were related, first names were the order of the day for young and old. She kept in close touch with her neighbors and it was a welcome and cheering sight to see her coming over the hill with her horse and buggy. She loved to walk and was seen at a distance down the road; the neighbor putting the coffee pot on was ready to greet Betsy with a cup of strong coffee, a bowl of soup and a fresh bun. Something to take home for the evening meal was a real luxury. When Beret, Betsy Arntson Duzan, passed away, there was a vacant space in their home. Sadness blanketed the community.

Central Collegiate presents: Once Upon A Mattress Sasha-Gay Lobban
Central Collegiate will be bringing a lot of fun and laughter to the Mae Wilson stage with their production of “Once Upon A Mattress,” which sees a cast of up to 25 students putting on a great show for audiences to enjoy. The production will be held at the Mae Wilson Theatre for three nights, November 22-24. Tickets are available at Central Collegiate or online at showtix4u. com for $15. The show will begin at 7pm. Director Brian Bowley says the play is based on the fairy-tale, The Princess and the Pea. “The reason we chose this play is that we had a cast that really suited the story this year, so we decided to do it. We’ve been wanting to do this play a couple years now, but we didn’t have the cast. Now that we do, it’s been amazing to see it come together. Our productions usually depend on the cast that we have. “The particular story is based on the fairy-tale, ‘The Princess and the Pea’,” Bowley said. “We have around 25 cast members, grades 9-12. The show is usually open to all students who are interested. We often get kids right from the
just minor parts in plays so this is a big step for me. I’ve been doing plays for about three years and this has been fun,” she said. “I’m looking forward to seeing how it all comes together in the end because a lot of hard work has been put into these practices; the choreography and the singing. The audience will get to have a lot of laughs and have fun while they watch.” “We want everyone to come and have fun. It’s a really fun show. Some of the songs are raucous, some are romantic but it’s a nice breath of fresh air for a fairy-tale,” said Bowley. “Once Upon A Time” is directed by Brian Bowley; Musical director Paul McCorriston; Choreographed by Shana VanDenHeuvel. Stage construction is by Brad Raes with costumes by Chantel Mack.

REFLECTIVE MOMENTS Showing kindness to rude drivers It is time for another dissertation on a variety of topics: • In the much-publicized “lean” concept of hospital design and operation, Joyce Walter no one said For Moose Jaw Express a n y t h i n g to potential patients and visitors regarding the need to dress warmly and in layers to comfortably spend any time in emergency ward rooms or in the upstairs patient rooms. During some recent time spent hanging out with a family member in three levels of rooms, the great air conditioning system was noted in September and early October. It was snowing and cold outside in September while it wasn’t snowing but cold indoors. During the October sojourn it was nippy outside and nippy inside. I learned to wear clothing appropriate for extended visits. Last week, in a main floor emergency room, while the patient was covered in heated sheets, I sat there wrapped in a winter coat as the cold air swirled around us. When the kind nurse asked if we needed anything, I jokingly mentioned some heat in the room would be nice. She looked for but couldn’t find a temperature control in our room, confiding that some rooms have them, most don’t. And in those that do have controls, the temperature can only be changed two degrees up or two degrees down. Despite wishing for two degrees up, I declined her offer of a warmed blanket because I was only a visitor and not a legitimate user of the staff’s caring nature. Instead, I stepped into the hall where it was warmer, and then ventured to the public washroom where it was absolutely balmy. After some consideration of room temperatures it became apparent that this was a “lean” plan to encourage patients and their visitors not to malinger and outstay
their welcome or take advantage of the the availability of the warmed coverings. • With some snow on the street and icy intersections here and there, it is again interesting to watch and beware of the drivers who haven’t caught on that caution is important in such conditions. The guy in the black pickup with the oversized wheels and loud horn made me wish the other day that I had the capability of teaching him the manners of winter driving — walking tall and carrying a big stick came to mind. My driving instructor would have given him a failing grade not only for his rudeness but his inattention to traffic and other drivers. I won’t apologize for taking longer than he thought was necessary to make my left turn off Manitoba Street onto Ninth Avenue Northeast. The oncoming truck, with the right-of-way, dictated that with ice on the road I should not hurry to turn in front of him. The guy in the pickup either got his licence through online shopping or wasn’t paying attention from his higher-up vantage to note the oncoming truck. This guyin-a-hurry proved that his horn worked as he gave me the equivalent of a raised finger, hitting the horn more than once. I did not respond but watched him carefully as he tailgated me to the next stop sign and roared his engine, and continued that juvenile behaviour until Thatcher Drive. As I signaled to turn left off Thatcher, he roared past me and sped away so he could be first in line at the next red light and icy intersection. I restrained myself and didn’t wave with raised fingers as he drove away. Someone would be proud of me. • And in line with my interaction with this troubling person, I later learned there is a day this week called “World Kindness Day.” Perhaps being kind to rude drivers was not the full intent of this special celebration, but until I get my own jacked up pickup with a loud horn and menacing chrome front, I will show my kindness by refusing to engage them in their road rudeness. I hope he continues to have one of his “nice days.” Joyce Walter can be reached at ronjoy@ sasktel.net
ular version of a fairy-tale was written generally by men and it is full of sexism. This re-telling of the tale changes some of the traditional roles and gives us an alternative to the way that things were. There are all kinds of chivalry still involved and there is the traditional woman in power who is seen as bad or evil and then there is the maiden. But, our heroine of the story isn’t so helpless as maidens were then. It’s been re-written with some very strong female characters.” One of the lead actors, grade 12 student Elizabeth Eros who will play Princess Winnifred, the Woebegone says she is looking forward to the performance as this is her first lead role in a play. “I love the production. It’s so amazing; the cast is so tightly-knit and we’re all coming together nicely. It’s been great. And I’ve never played a lead role before,

My Grandmother’s Decision Submitted by Roberta Fonger
As we observe the 100th anniversary of the end of World War 1, it is easy to think of that war as a 4-year event that is now history. Important, but over. This story tells one of the many human impact results of that war that affected 3 generations of women for many years after. The final resolution for myself came only a few short years ago. I have to thank my life long friend, Eleanor Palmer Friesen, who did the diligent research in writing her family history, for writing the words that turned on the light of understanding for me. A short time after the war in 1920, my grandmother, Helen Low, would have considered herself very fortunate to have her new husband as they awaited the birth of their first child. They lived on the family farm near Cupar, Fife, Scotland, that also served as a blacksmith shop for the region. Unfortunately for her, tragedy struck. Late in Oct of 1920, her husband, Tom Low, was found drowned in the burn (Creek) that ran through the farm. The shock of his death threw her into premature labour and her daughter, my mother, Jean Low, was born 2 months premature, weighing 3 lbs. A tiny baby for that time. Fortunately, she thrived and grew to be a wonderful mother herself. Helen, without the skills to work elsewhere, stayed with the Low family & was supported by Tom’s parents sister and brother-in-law. In 1925, Robert Donaldson, an ambitious young farmer from the Cupar area, returned from Canada to spend the winter. He had immigrated to Canada in 1910, settling in the Craik SK. area. Like the many Europeans that came to Canada
at that time, seeking a better life, he had worked for several years getting established and returned home with sufficient funds to bring back a wife. Back then there were no credit cards or loans for travel. I don’t know much about their story that winter, however Helen Low returned to Canada with him as his bride, now Helen Donaldson, leaving her now 4-year-old daughter with her husband’s family as there was not sufficient money to bring her to Canada as well. I suspect that the Lows would not have helped with this journey because paying for Jean’s costs would have ended their last link to their now lost son and brother. Understandable from their point of view, but a very difficult situation for my Grandmother. Much later in my life I asked my Uncle and Aunt who were born in Canada about that. I learned that the plan was for my grandmother to go back after a short time to bring her daughter to Canada. Again, fate and World events intervened; 3 more children & the Great Depression prevented Helen from returning to Scotland. My grandmother passed away when I was only 8 years old and I had always just accepted the family history. It was not until I became a mother myself in 1988 that I looked at my own newborn child and thought about the decision my grandmother had made. I could not fathom leaving my child behind for any reason. It was something that I thought about frequently over the next 20 years, not wanting to blame, but to understand. Back to the Thirties. In 1934, Helen boarded the train from Craik to Davidson with her 3 children, while Robert & his hired help moved the cattle herd across country to the Davidson area, & estab-
lished a new farm just west of the town. Later in the 30’s, as the clouds of War grew over Europe once again, many young men who were dealing with the results of the depression were eager to sign up & go to a fate that many did not really comprehend until it was too late. Here is where another War, World War 11 entered into this remarkable story. Enter my father Jack Rands of Davidson, who was the son of one of Helen’s (now Donaldson) friends. He had returned to Davidson in 1939 at the age of 19, after working in various jobs in Alberta from the time he had turned 16. Along with several other young men from the area, he decided to enlist and waited until Dec 1940 to get the call to join the South Saskatchewan Regiment. A year later, he was stationed in England. He had spoken with Helen before he left and obtained Jean’s address so that if he had a long enough leave, he could go & visit her. In early 1942, he made that trip, and in the words written in his memories “I knew in an instant this
was the woman I wanted to marry”. They were engaged 5 days later and married in 1943, after my father had recovered from injuries sustained at Dieppe. Dad returned to Davidson in the fall of 1945 and my mother came with a large group of “War Brides” in March 1946. She was reunited with her mother after 22 years and met her brother and 2 sisters for the first time. They ended up farming ½ a mile apart and had time to reconnect over the next 14 years until my grandmothers’ death in 1960. Back to 1918. Eleanor wrote that over 150,000 Scottish Soldiers perished in that war. That meant that 150,000 Scottish women were left as widows or without the lifelong partner they had planned on marrying after the war. In reading my friend’s family stories in 2010, 90 years later, I finally comprehended the profound effect that War had on so many residents of the countries involved. Left with a choice of a lifetime with no future and dependency on others or having what she hoped would only be a temporary separation from her daughter, Helen Donaldson made a very courageous decision. A decision that I now fully understand. She had lost one husband, and chance gave her one more opportunity for a better life & she took it. She became a busy partner in a farm, which was a very full and satisfying life. Opportunities for us all are so different now, but back the, the education opportunities and jobs did nor exist for women as they do today. War1 indirectly separated my mother from her mother. Word War 11 united them, strange as that may seem. I thanked my friend Eleanor several years ago for unraveling my conflicting thoughts about their journey.
Remembrance Day Traditions in the U.K. Friend of the Moose Jaw Express, Bryan Wilcockson from Selby, Yorkshire, UK. shares a little more of Remembrance Day traditions in their region. Teachers take their students from junior schools in and around Selby, UK participate in a tradition held at cemeteries. Veterans take a child each and plant a poppy on each commonwealth war grave. A very moving tribute. There was standing room only at the Remembrance Day Ceremony at Selby Abbey on Sunday, followed by a march past (usually by the RAF squadrons and the Yorkshire Regiment) The best tradition comes last. All the ex-forces bikers from all over Yorkshire meet up at Squires Coffee Bar and then drive through the town in a massive convoy. There is another tradition over in the UK; it is called Bonfire Night. It dates back to the reign of James 1st when Guy Fawkes tried to blow up the Houses of Parliament in Made by one of Network Rail’s suppliers: A seat to be 1605. Every 5th of November, celebrating by lighting bonfires, setting off fireworks proud of! and burning an effigy of Guy Fawkes ( ‘The Guy’) Unless of course you went to St Peter’s school in York. He was one of their pupils so by tradition they refuse to join in. The photo shows the first firework of the night. If you look it’s a poppy. Photo by Paul Nolan.
For those with a memory of the ‘Pals’ battalions, this is from Accrington in Lancashire ( the ‘Accrington Pals’ were a famous example)

Vanier caps regular season with win over Briercrest Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express
The Vanier Spirits closed out their Moose Jaw high school volleyball league regular season with a commanding win. The end result of their 3-1 (25-15, 17-25, 25-16, 25-10) victory over the Briercrest Christian Academy Cougars at Vanier on Nov. 6 was a 10-2 regular season record, good enough for a tie for first place with the Peacock Toilers. For a Spirits team that traditionally has found itself in the middle of the pack standings-wise, it’s a been a banner campaign. And one they hope ends up with just as exceptional a run through the playoffs. “It was pretty awesome,” said Spirits veteran Jenna Meili. “We’ve been really improving, working together as a team and it’s really nice for us to come together... some of us have been on the team for a couple of years now and I think it’s just that we’re more confident and know what we can do out there.” It’s the culmination of several seasons of building in the direction of a season like this, with a combination of experienced veterans and solid skills making for an impressive team. “(Head coach) Leanne (Meili) has done a really, really good job with them,” said Spirits assistant coach Brad Hennenfent. “These girls are really fundamentally sound and now they’re just starting to mature and get into their own. We have five Grade 12s and some good leaders in that Grade 11 group and they’re a good group of kids.” Vanier’s only two regular season losses were to Peacock – giving the Toilers the first-place tiebreaker as a result – but they were some impressively close games. Peacock
said. “We’ll just have to keep playing as well as we can in the playoffs and see what happens.” The Toilers also had a good night to close out their regular season, taking a 3-0 (25-10, 25-17, 25-17) win over the Central Cyclones (1-11). Central faced Cornerstone Christian School in the quarter-final on Nov. 13, with the winner taking on Peacock on Nov. 15. Vanier faced Briercrest in the other semifinal, with score unavailable as of press time. The girls league final takes place at 6:20 p.m. on Nov. 20, with the highest remaining seed hosting the contest.

Vanier to host charity volleyball games: Special event to raise money for Riverside Mission Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express
There’s nothing like playing the sport you love and raising a few bucks for charity while you’re at it. Jenna Meili of the Vanier Spirits senior girls volleyball team is planning to do just that with a pair of contests set for the afternoon of Dec. 1 – one an exhibition game featuring some of the top players in the local high school leagues, followed by a contest featuring a host of local celebrities. “It’s going to be a lot of fun,” Meili said after a recent high school league contest. “We have some pretty cool celebrities coming out; we have some Roughriders, and a couple police officers. So we’re hoping to have some entertaining games.” Action will kick off at 1 p.m. with the high school game, followed by the celebrity contest. All fans are more than welcome, with admission by donation. All funds raised will
go to Riverside Mission and the wide variety of programs they conduct for the homeless. The game came out of Meili attending a leadership conference known as ‘Passion to Purpose’ through the Duke of Edinburgh program, during which the idea to use her love of volleyball as a potential fundraiser came to fruition. “A couple of Vanier students had done something similar to this for basketball, so I kind of played off their idea and it’s all come together,” Meili said. The key now will be to use to next month to finalize rosters and hopefully see word of mouth reach a fever pitch. “We’ve been working really hard on it and we’re looking forward to seeing it all come together on December 1,” she Vanier Spirits captain Jenna Meili said. blocks a Briercrest Cougars kill attempt during a recent contest.

Aqua Otters taking new look into season
Club focussing on developing swimmers through recreational program Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express
The Moose Jaw Kinsmen Aqua Otters are looking to expand their synchronized swimming program. The local club – which swims twice a week at the pool in the 15 Wing athletic complex – recently opted to move to a full recreational program for the 201819 season, a move designed to rebuild the team back into the competitive stream. As a result, it’s the ‘more the merrier’ as they hope to see new youngsters taking to the pool. To that end, they’ll be holding a Try Synchro for Free evening on Nov. 16, looking to see as many potential new Otters as possible. “We’ll just try and incorporate you into the practice, show off some routines and kind of what we do, play some games and have some fun,” said Otters head coach Alysa Beattie. “We just want the kids to come out and see what it’s all about.” The club currently swims and trains twice a week on Tuesdays and Fridays, with older swimmers training for two hours and younger swimmers for an hour and a half. Training includes in-water, as well as dryland training, all with the goal of building up skill, stamina and – naturally

Synchro is a good sport because you make a lot of really good friendships and you’re having fun while you’re working, so you don’t notice it as much.”
That’s not to say there isn’t plenty of work involved. Given the amount of time swimmers spend underwater during their more-complex routines, the sport can be as taxing as any out there. “If you think your sport is hard you should try it while holding your breath,” Beattie said with a laugh. The overall creativity of synchronized swimming is also something many find
attractive. In addition to being an athletic sport, creating well-meshed routines including make-up and costumes is a major part of any kind of success “If you’re looking for a creative sport, this is kind of the place to be,” Beattie said. “It’s like dancing, it’s like cheer, it’s like speed-swimming, it brings so many different elements together.” Currently, synchro programs are taking place in three age categories, with the 13to 15-year-old division, 10-12 group and six to nine group. The Otters plan to expand classes as necessary for more swimmers coming on, and ideally getting back into the competitive side of the sport in the near future. “Hopefully in a year or two max,” Beattie said, who is in her seventh year with the club and second as coach. “You never know, we’ll just have to see how things turn out.” The most important thing, though, is to keep the Otters in the water. “This is my family, quite honestly, I’ve known these girls for so long,” Beattie said. “Even though I’m their coach, they’re still like little sisters to me and it’s great to be able to work with them.”

Generals retire Evan Thomas’ number, raise banner Latest honour for young player killed in Broncos bus tragedy Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express
The Moose Jaw Generals have seen to it Evan Thomas will be remembered for all time by the local hockey community. The Generals held a special jersey retirement ceremony on Thursday, Nov. 8 for the fallen player, raising his number ‘9’ to the rafters of Mosaic Place as family members and supporters looked on from centre ice. It was the latest honour and memorial for the former Moose Jaw midget AAA standout who was among the 16 killed in the Humboldt Broncos tragedy on Apr. 6. “It’s a very special honour for our family to have him honoured that way by the city of Moose Jaw, by the Warriors and specifically by the Generals,” said Evan’s father Scott Thomas. “My wife Laurie’s family is from here, I was fortunate enough to play here in Moose Jaw, graduated high school in Moose Jaw and we have a cabin at Buffalo Pound Lake. “So Moose Jaw is home and to have Evan recognized here forever is quite a thing for us. We’re going to be able to come back and see his number up there and it’ll definitely warm our hearts, for sure” A former Warriors forward and member of the Warriors and Legends Hall of Fame, Scott was joined by Laurie, daugh-
Scott, Jordyn and Laurie Thomas were in Moose Jaw on Nov. 8 for the retirement of Evan Thomas’ Moose Jaw Generals number and banner raising.

prior to the Generals’ game against the Notre Dame Argos. Among Scott’s many memories of Evan’s time playing in Moose Jaw was the general enthusiasm he had for playing the game. “Just the joy that he had and the smile on his face all the time,” he said. “He was quite fortunate the two years that he was here the Generals had some really good teams... he had one goal I specifically remember at this (south end) of the ice, with Jayden Davis and Chance Petruic in the playoffs, just the celebration they had up against the glass and the pure joy they had on their face. It was good to see them having fun with good teammates and good players on a good team.” That’s one of the reasons being a part of the banner ceremony was important to the family, even if Evan himself wouldn’t have wanted much to do with it – something that came to mind as the banner was raised. “(I was thinking of) kind of how he wouldn’t have been happy,” Scott said with a smile. “He didn’t like all the attention on him, he never wanted to be in a production. He was always ‘this is too much of a production, we don’t need this’. As it was going up there, I kind of squeezed my daughter’s hand and said ‘how’s this for a production’ and she kind of chuckled. “It’s quirky little things like that, and Evan just had such a great sense of humour. His teammates loved him because he had such a great sense of humour, was just one of the guys and a great kid.” Thursday’s tribute was just the latest for Evan and the Thomas family. In addition to the tribute game played at Mosaic Place this spring and the Saskatoon Blazers jersey retirement earlier this season, cards, letters and flowers have been coming in on a regular basis. It’s all part of an ongoing sense of support that has extended to everyone involved in the tragedy. “We still get flowers to the house every week, we had flowers last week and I got
a card at work the other day from someone just offering the opportunity to talk,” Scott said with a tone of amazement. “It’s something that just tore through the hearts of so many people on so many levels, whether you were a parent or you rode a bus when you were a hockey player. It could have been anyone it happened to, and that’s why it hit so many people so hard and so many people are supporting our family and all the families affected by this.” One thing is for certain – each show of support is another chance to talk about Evan, and that’s a chance Scott isn’t about to pass up. “It’s one of the things that’s become easier for me... once you speak at your son’s eulogy, everything becomes easy after that,” Scott said. “Our family, every opportunity we get to talk about it is another reason for us to smile. We came here tonight and I see several of my old teammates in the stands here, guys I played with back in the day, so we’ll have a hug and maybe a tear will roll down our cheeks, but it shows how special this opportunity is to remember him.” The Generals also made special mention of Moose Jaw Express for designing and donating the banner as well as Sharon Cole from SPRINTZ Manufacturing for performing all the stitching work on the banner. **** The Generals were unable to find the win column on Thursday night, as the Notre Dame Argos rallied from a 2-0 deficit to win 3-2 in a shootout. Brendan Kemp and Jake Palmer scored for Moose Jaw, who led 1-0 after the first and 2-1 through two. Kevin Anderson scored the winning goal in the shootout for the Argos. Jaxson Taupert made 36 saves in the loss; Ruben Cooper had 30 saves in the win. The Generals are back in action Nov. 16 when they travel to Tisdale.

Nutrien to focus on Saskatchewan for potash, writes off east coast facility SASKATOON _ The head of Nutrien Ltd. says the company has enough room for potash expansion in Saskatchewan that it doesn’t make sense to invest in expanding production in costlier regions. Chief executive Chuck Magro said, “The decision is pretty obvious when you look at, we have five million tonnes in Saskatchewan of excess capacity today, and if we invest a little bit of capital in the six facilities in Saskatchewan we could even go much higher than our operational capacity that’s stated of 18 million tonnes for very
economic expansion.’’ The economics of the East Coast mine just couldn’t compete with the Prairie operations, Magro said. ``The cash cost of production in New Brunswick is just so much higher than Saskatchewan.’’ On Monday, Nutrien, which keeps its books in U.S. dollars, reported a net loss of US$1.04 billion in its latest quarter after the company took a $1.8-billion impairment charge on the shuttered mine. The loss amounted to $1.70 per share for
the quarter ended Sept. 30 compared with a profit of $53 million or six cents per share a year ago. Adjusted net earnings came to 47 cents per share, above analyst expectations for 40 cents per share according to Thomson Reuters Eikon. In its outlook, Nutrien raised its full-year net earnings guidance for 2018 to between $2.60 and $2.80, from the previous guidance of $2.40 and $2.70 per share. The company also raised its quarterly dividend to 43 cents, up from 40 cents.
Nutrien put the Picadilly mine on care and maintenance in early 2016 amid a weak market for the fertilizer. The decision to permanently close the mine means about 430 jobs won’t be coming back to the location near Sussex, N.B. At the time of the closure, Nutrien was known as the Potash Corp. of Saskatchewan. It became Nutrien at the start of the year after completing a merger with Agrium Inc. that added more production options for the company. © 2018 The Canadian Press
CMHC forecasts ‘moderation’ in Canadian housing market over next two years By Linda Nguyen - THE CANADIAN PRESS
Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp. says the country’s real estate market is expected to moderate over the next two years as the growth in housing prices begins to slow to be more in line with economic fundamentals. In its annual outlook, the national housing agency forecasts housing starts and sales to both decline in 2019 and 2020. It anticipates housing starts for single and multiunit starts will fall to between 193,700 and 204,500 in 2019, while sales are expected come in between 478,400 and 497,400 units. Prices are anticipated to range from $501,400 and $521,600. NOTICE OF INTENTION TO CONSIDER THE ADOPTION OF A DEVELOPMENT LEVY BYLAW
The Council of the City of Moose Jaw intends to consider the adoption of a Development Levy Bylaw pursuant to The Planning and Development Act, 2007. The purpose of the bylaw is to establish development levy rates for recovering all or a part of the municipality’s capital costs of providing, altering, expanding or upgrading services and facilities associated, directly or indirectly, with a new proposed development. A copy of the proposed Bylaw may be inspected by any interested person at the Office of the City Clerk, City Hall, 228 Main Street North, or on the city website, www.moosejaw.ca under “news releases”, from Tuesday, November 6th, 2018 until Monday, November 26th, 2018 from 8:15 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Written submissions must be received by Planning and Development Services, 228 Main Street North, Moose Jaw, SK S6H 3J8, by 10:00 AM on Monday, November 26th, 2018 in person or by email at email@example.com The proposed Bylaw and any submissions regarding the proposed Bylaw will be considered at the regular meeting of City Council to be held in Council Chambers, City Hall, at 5:30 p.m. on Monday, November 26th, 2018. DATED at Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan this 6th day of November, 2018. Myron Gulka-Tiechko - City Clerk

``Our key take-away from this year’s outlook is moderation in Canada’s housing markets for 2019 into 2020,’’ Bob Dugan, chief economist at the CMHC, said in a statement. ``Housing starts are expected to decline from the higher levels we’ve seen recently. We expect resales in 2019 and 2020 to remain below recent peaks while prices should reach levels that are more in line with economic fundamentals such as income, job and populations growth.’’ The agency expects the number of single-detached housing starts to decrease due to a number of factors including the availability of lot sizes, housing prices and higher borrowing costs. Multi-unit starts were also expected to decline, partly attributed to smaller anticipated growth in the age group between 25 to 34, who make up a large proportion of first-time buyers. But some of the downward trend could be offset by an aging population looking

to downsize. The agency expects demand will continue to shift towards relatively less expensive housing options like apartment condominiums versus higher-end single-detached homes. CMHC says it still sees global trade as a ``risk’’ to the Canadian economy and the housing market, despite the recent trade agreement reached between Canada, the U.S. and Mexico. Rising mortgage rates are also expected to affect housing demand and the resale market, it said. In the outlook, CMHC says it anticipates housing prices will ``rise slightly’’ after the some moderation. ``However, slower employment and GDP growth, as well as gradually increasing mortgage rates, will restrain the increase in demand for existing homes by 2020,’’ said the report. ``As demand moves to lower levels relative to new supply, market conditions are expected to ease.’’ It also warned that Canadian households remain vulnerable due to heavy debt loads. ``If interest rates or unemployment rates were to rise more than expected, heavily indebted households could face greater constraints on their consumption leading to downward pressure on the economy and housing activity,’’ CMHC said.

WorkSafe’s Safe Worker, Safe Employer Award nominations open until Nov. 17 Do you know a worker who leads safety in the workplace, or an employer who makes safety a core company value? Each year, WorkSafe Saskatchewan recognizes workers and employers who strive to make Mission: Zero a reality in the province through the Safe Worker Award and Safe Employer Award. This year’s nomination deadline for both awards is November 17. “It’s important to recognize those workers and employers who have taken the steps to create strong safety cultures in their workplaces,” said Kevin Mooney, the Saskatchewan Workers’ Compensation Board (WCB)’s Director of Prevention. “Workers who identify hazards and introduce safety initiatives create safer work environments, while employers who prioritize safety reduce workplace injuries and improve employee morale.” Applicants will be evaluated on the following criteria: WorkSafe has presented the Safe Worker Award since 2006 and the Safe Employer Award since 2007. Workplace peers and colleagues nominate the recipients of these awards. Two committees representing WorkSafe Saskatchewan, the Saskatchewan Federation of Labour, the Saskatchewan Safety Council and the Canadian Society of Safety Engineers adjudicate the nominations. The top three finalists for each award will be notified in January 2019 and the award winners are announced and presented with their award during an awards luncheon taking place annually at the WCB’s Compensation Institute, a two-day educational event in March. In 2018, the Safe Worker Award was presented to Justin Ellis with Humboldt Electric in Saskatoon and the Safe Employer Award was presented to the R.M. of Wilton in Marshall. “We applaud all of the past winners of our Safe Worker and Safe Employer Awards for their commitments to zero injuries, zero fatalities, and zero suffering,” said Mooney. “There are many workers and employers in this province implementing great initiatives to improve safety at their workplaces and we want to hear about them.” Nominations close on November 17, 2018 for the 2019 awards. To nominate a safe worker and safe employer, visit www.worksafesask.ca/resources/awards.
Safe Worker Award Criteria · This award is not open to management, front line supervisors or those in dedicated safety positions. · The worker should have exemplary involvement in health and safety. · It is preferred if the worker sits on their Occupational Health and Safety Committee (OHC). · Workers should have championed an innovative safety idea or project in the workplace. Include how and why it was implemented, as well as any barriers to overcome. · This safety idea or project should have had workplace safety and health benefits, as well as other measurable results and cultural benefits. · OHC, OH&S representatives or small-sized employers are encouraged to nominate someone from their workplace.
Safe Employer Award Criteria · All Saskatchewan businesses, unions, municipalities, schools, service organizations, and non-profit organizations with a valid Saskatchewan WCB firm number are eligible to apply. · Applicants must not have any compliance disputes concerning all safety-related codes, acts and regulations. · Organizations should have a health and safety policy outlining roles, responsibilities and health/safety goals. · Employers should have hazard identification, inspection processes and emergency response processes. There should also be processes to effectively communicate safety messages and ensuring employees are trained to work safely. · Organizations should regularly measure and report how health and safety are managed in accordance with a recognized standard, such as a safety association audit.

Sunningdale School honours our veterans. Each year Sunningdale Shool and the 15 Wing Fellowship honour the veterans of the Afghanistan War by placing 158 flags on the entrance way to the school. It is a way to commemorate these soldiers, one of whom was the father of a Sunningdale student a few years ago. The family has since left the city but the tradition continues.

New legion and anavets support program announced A new Legion and ANAVETS Support Program have been created to provide funding grants to Royal Canadian Legion branches and Army, Navy, Air Force Veterans (ANAVETS) units in Saskatchewan. This grant program will assist with the important work of supporting veterans and keeping the memory of our fallen heroes. “Past and present members of the Canadian Forces have taken it upon themselves to safeguard our freedoms and give back greatly to their communities,” Moe said. “Now it’s our turn to support our veterans who have served and put everything on the line. Today, our government is announcing a $100,000 Legion and ANAVETS Support Program that will provide funding grants to Legion branches and ANAVETS units across Saskatchewan.” “We want to help legions so veterans, their families and community members have access to facilities for the programming, activities, events and meetings they host,” Parks, Culture, and Sport Minister Gene Makowsky said. “Their dedication to providing services for veterans is invaluable to our communities.” The $100,000 Legion and ANAVETS Support Program will be implemented as part of the 2019-20 budget and will offer support to Legion branches and ANAVETS

units in their efforts to serve veterans and community members throughout Saskatchewan. “We look forward to this provincial investment to ensure long-term support for our existing veteran services,” Saskatchewan Legion Executive Director Chad Wagner said. “The Legion provides veterans and active members with services relating to mental health, securing benefits, service dogs, athletic programs, and homelessness assistance.” As not-for-profit member-based organizations, legions advocate for and serve veterans, active members of the Canadian Armed Forces, RCMP, and their families. Their members provide vital services in their communities, free of charge. Legions honour veterans and fallen heroes through various remembrance initiatives including Remembrance Day ceremonies and the Poppy Campaign. Additionally, Canadian Legions act as one of the largest community volunteer groups nationwide. In addition to providing fraternity for veterans, ANAVETS units in Canada are also mandated to maintain and operate clubs, museums, homes and meeting places for the benefit of veterans and Canada’s war history. Details of the application process will be forthcoming.

Are you the Next Generation?
Have you been identified as the EXPRESS next owner and/or manager of all or a part of your family farm? If not, do you expect to be? Do you have any idea at all? The broad spectrum of answers to these questions varies, depending on the farm family and situation. Itâ€™s quite a bit easier if you know. But whether you do â€Ś or donâ€™t â€Ś you need to ask yourself if youâ€™re ready. And the answer must be based on more than a high degree of â€˜confidence that you can do itâ€™. Confidence will help but it alone will not carry the day. The farm that you will manage and own some day, on your own or with siblings and in-laws, is NOT the same farm that your parents started with. Most farms are significantly more complex. Farms are larger, with some being very, very large. And most are growing, either in size or diversity as there are often multiple enterprises or business units involved. Detailed organizational structures â€“ corporations, holding companies, operating companies, trusts, joint ventures, partnerships â€“ are common. All add to the increasing degree of complexity associated with todayâ€™s farms. Following are some things you should be doing to get ready for the role(s) you will assume when the transition of ownership and management begins. Your observations and notes to the topic areas below absolutely MUST be written down. Writing something down makes it genuine and adds credence to the statement or fact. You are more accountable to something written than to something spoken. Another benefit is that the written statement can be reviewed and used as a marker or indicator of development and achievement. Past and Future Compare and contrast the farm as it is today with what it was like 10 years ago. Now look forward. What will it look like 10 years into the future? Working through this exercise will help you create context for change that has occurred and change that will accompany the transition. Set Goals The process of setting goals helps you choose where you want to go in life. By knowing precisely what you want to achieve, you know where you have to concentrate your
efforts. Goals can be for yourself (personal), family and the farm business. Goals can have different timelines for achievement â€” current (one year), short term (five years) and longer term (10 years). Your goals should be specific, realistic and measurable. Make sure you focus on the personal goals. Unfortunately, there are family farm situations where one or more of the children want to farm but are not given the opportunity. Sometimes the retiring generation refuses or is unable to give any indication of what they are thinking about for the future. In these situations, itâ€™s even more important that you have clarity on what you want to accomplish, personally, in life. For each goal, write down why you chose it and what the outcome will be when you achieve it. Itâ€™s important that you review and adjust your goals every year. Are you making progress? Have circumstances changed? Management Development Make the investment in getting some post-secondary education. A degree, a diploma or a trade. Hereâ€™s the really important part. Be prepared to continue to advance your management skill set after you complete the program. Think about it. You move right from high school into your post-secondary program. Youâ€™re finished in your early 20â€™s and youâ€™re tired of school. You just want to â€˜farmâ€™. Fair enough. But if you farm until you turn 65, thatâ€™s over 40 years. Farming is different than what it was. The rate of change going forward is going to demand upgrading your management ability. Your management development program should be aligned with the transition plan. Are you developing the skill set that it required to own and manage the farm? Lastly, for the same reasons listed above, write down your management development plan. I understand, that as the next generation, youâ€™re not the ultimate decision maker and therefore, will usually not have a lot, or sometimes any, control of the situation. This can be frustrating. However, itâ€™s important that you be as ready as you can be. This will help you to be in the best situation possible no matter what the future holds.

Two more interest rate hikes anticipated By Ron Walter - For Agri-Mart Express
Farmers need to factor in AGRIMART increases in interest rates EXPRESS when preparing financial plans for the next year. Farm Credit Canada economist J. P. Gervais expects at least two more interest rate bumps before the end of next year. The recent Bank of Canada increase in the overnight lending rate to 1.75 per cent was â€œlargely anticipated.â€? The bank statement â€œsent a strong signalâ€? that more increases in interest rates are planned. Gervais expects an increase in rates by early January and another in the first half of 2019. The Bank of Canada believes an interest rate between 2.5 per cent and
three per cent is needed to keep the lid on inflation, said Gervais. Inflation rates will be a big factor in determining the interest rate hikes. Earlier this year the inflation rate was â€œflirtingâ€? with three per cent but that has since headed back towards two per cent. Gervais expects the tight labour market will push up wages with some effect on the inflation as well. FCC has said that Canadian farm balance sheets are strong enough to withstand some interest rate increases but lower commodity prices and any boost from the U.S.-Mexico-Canada trade agreement are matters to consider when planning.
Prepare trees and shrubs to avoid winter damage By Ron Walter - For Agri-Mart Express
EXPRESS Preparation can avoid the kill of trees and shrubs from a severe winter, according to an agroforestry specialist with Alberta Agriculture and Forestry. â€œWe canâ€™t prevent winter from arriving, but we can do a few things to prepare trees and shrubs to survive it,â€? says Tim Bozic.
Aside from rodents and deer feeding on bark and twigs, winter snow, freezing and rain can break branches, desiccate needles and damage roots. Watering deciduous trees as soon as they lose their leaves and before the ground freezes is important. Evergreens may use the water in winter. Donâ€™t let the water run off quickly. Water slowly around the outermost circumference of the tree. Water young trees around the root ball.
Build a doughnut of mulch four to six inches deep around the tree but leave the trunk clear. Protecting trees from hungry rodents, deer and moose requires wire mesh, or plastic electric fences around the trees, or repellents. Do not use salt for de-icing around trees. Salt can kill the plant. Removing dead, diseased and damaged branches can reduce future insect and disease issues.
CNIB has products, programs and services for veterans who are blind or partially sighted CNIB was founded by a group of men 100 years agoâ€“ several of whom had served in the military â€“ who recognized the need to support their fellow veterans who were returning home blind after World War I. CNIBâ€™s founders returned home from war with a vision of an organization that would empower blind and partially sighted Canadians with the confidence, skills and opportunities they would need to regain their independence and fully participate in life. â€œIn this week of remembering the importance of those who served, we also want to remind veterans CNIB has products, programs and services for people who are blind or partially sighted,â€? says Brenda Heisler the northern manager for Vision Loss Rehabilitation Saskatchewan, a CNIB organization. Whether their sight loss is complete or partial, combat-related or simply a factor of aging, veterans of all ages can take advantage of Vision Loss Rehabilitation Saskatchewanâ€™s free, personalized rehabilitation support â€“ helping them make the most of their remaining sight and creating a plan that helps them get back to a fulfilling life. â€œOur vision rehabilitation specialists deliver services where Saskatchewan people need them most: in their homes and communities, over the phone, online and at CNIB centres in Regina and Saskatoon,â€? said Heisler. The CNIB Foundation and Vision Loss Rehabilitation Saskatchewan offer the largest array of products and technologies specially designed to make life with sight loss easier â€“ like magnifiers, talking watches and large-button telephones. For veterans, the cost of many of these products are covered by Veterans Affairs Canada. About Vision Loss Rehabilitation Saskatchewan Vision Loss Rehabilitation Saskatchewan is the provinceâ€™s leading provider of rehabilitation therapy for people with sight loss. As a CNIB organization, it brings nearly a century of experience of working in communities across Saskatchewan, offering services and support to enhance the independence, safety, mobility and emotional well-being of individuals who are blind or partially sighted. Vision Loss Rehabilitation Saskatchewanâ€™s services are operated by CNIB and funded by the Government of Saskatchewan. For more information visit ns.visionlossrehab.ca.
