A number of great Canadian authors and artists will be at this year’s festival, chosen from a long list of writers interested in attending.

Exciting Lineup for Festival of Words Larissa Kurz

The launch of this year’s Festival of Words has sparked excitement for what’s up-andcoming on this year’s schedule for the fourday event that celebrates Canadian literature as an art form. The 23rd annual Festival of Words is on the horizon and executive director Sarah Simison is enthusiastic about the lineup of authors, poets, artists and musicians that have signed on for this year. Over the four-day weekend, 25 authors will take part in over 60 events, including panels, workshops, readings, interviews, and performances. Trivia Night will be returning to Bobby’s Place, as well as the Poetry Slam Competition, which Simison noted is now a “pay what you can” kind of admission event. Sierra Noble will be performing at the Cultural Centre, and the Wakamow Aboriginal Community Association will host a blanket exercise and BBQ in Crescent Park. Authors attending this year include Saskatchewan crime-writer Gail Bowen, Indigenous poet Tenille Campbell, fiction novelist Eden Robinson, and so many others. History writer Ted Barris will be running a workshop on publishing without an agent, and likely talking about his newest book about the Dam Busters from World War II

– some of which were from Moose Jaw and are honored in a mural on the side of Fish’s Pharmacy. The Festival strives to make important regional connections with the authors they invite; up to 40% of the authors each year are Saskatchewan writers. Representation is something that organizers find important, in both the industry and their lineup — the goal is to give voice to every perspective they can. “We have a whole bunch of Indigenous writers coming, people of color, that are bringing different represented points of view and beautiful stories and life experiences,” said Simison. “We’re very careful to try to create balance and regional representation.” “We always have local flavour, which I think is really appealing to people from Saskatchewan because you have [a sense of] pride, like these are our people that are writing these great books,” Simison added. “But it’s also really great for people coming from [somewhere else] because they want a taste of our province and what we’re about.” The teen writing program — a week-long workshop to encourage teens who are serious about their writing — will be happening once again, and although there is a tuition price tag, Simison explained that the festi-

val finds sponsors so that anyone can attend. Simison is also excited to have cookbook author Renee Kohlman attending, as that’s a medium that hasn’t been represented at the festival in a few years. Currently in the works is a special event in partnership with Grant Hall, for perhaps a taste of some of Kohlman’s specialized recipes, although more details are yet to come. There are a number of different ticket types available for the festival, from full weekend passes to single event admission, and are now available for purchase from the Cultural Centre’s box office — online, in person, or by calling (306) 693-4700. Simison urges people to come out and experience the beauty of Canadian literature because it may surprise you. “What I’ve discovered, is what I always end up enjoying the most are the things that are unexpected,” said Simison. “It’s a very experiential thing. So, even though I’m anticipating enjoying a few things, I get really excited about the unknown. There’s something for everyone.” Local writers will continue hosting book club and the Performer’s cafe, leading up to the July 19-22 event, and more information can be found on the Festival of Words’ website.

The dedicated board of directors and community volunteers at the Moose Jaw Health Foundation have been putting in many hours getting ready for the 13th Annual 800 CHAB Family First Radiothon. The Radiothon will take place this Thursday and Friday, May 2nd and 3rd. For as long as I have had the honour to serve as an MLA, it has been a pleasure, each and every year, to be part of the broadcast bright and early before driving to the Legislature for the day. I feel humbled to be among those who give so much of themselves to provide the best health care possible in our city. I encourage everyone to tune in and to donate to help make significant improvements in the ability to provide the best possible care at the Dr. F.H. Wigmore Hospital. For 32 years, the volunteer board members, donors, and Foundation leadership have helped raise over 37 million dollars to help medical professionals save lives. Since the first Radiothon in 2006, funds have purchased pediatric, chemotherapy and endoscopic equipment; vital signs monitors, defibrillators, anesthetic machines, ultrasounds, portable digital x-ray and ultrasounds devices, critical care beds, monitors, and the hyperbaric chamber. Every area of hospital care has benefited from donor generosity. The focus of this year’s surgical campaign is to raise $150,000 for the purchase of a lithotripsy unit to treat

kidney stones and bladder stones. The surgical device pulverizes the stones and suctions away the fragments so patients do not experience the pain of passing them. The campaign also includes the purchase of a new anesthetic machine to provide surgical patients with the latest and safest technology. Every donation, regardless of the size, will make a difference in patient care in our community. Thank you to Thunder Creek Pork for generously pledging to match donations, dollar-for-dollar, up to $25,000. Executive Director Kelly McElree and the Moose Jaw Health Foundation are active all year round with organizations, community clubs and groups. Besides the Radiothon, community volunteers get involved with events like the Festival of Trees and Sundae with Santa, the Little Princess Ball, Moose Jawg, the Cancer Care Raffle, and Concerts in the Park. More than 37 million dollars raised for health care over the years shows what great success comes about with teamwork and the generosity of a caring community. This is also a good time to recognize those who are on the front lines of providing health care; our nurses. Next week is “National Nursing Week.� Excellence in care and positive outcomes depend on these dedicated professionals. In Saskatchewan we have more than 16,000 nurses to thank; including registered nurses, registered psychiatric nurses, licensed practical nurses and nurse practitioners. Thank you for your dedication. Many will remember how Saskatchewan lost 450 nurses from 2001 to 2006. Fortunately, since that time, health care has continued to improve in large part because of the over 3,700 more nurses providing services. We have more nurses in the province now than at any other time in our history. Dedicated health care professionals, outstanding organizations like the Moose Jaw Health Foundation, together with the Government of Saskatchewan has seen great improvement in the delivery of health care. Together we will continue to improve health care throughout the province.

U.K. study finds high yield farming can save natural habitat By Ron Walter - For Agri-Mart Express

19051MM1 19051MM2


EXPRESS Organic agriculture may not be as environmentally-friendly as conventional high yield agriculture. That conclusion was reached by a team of University of Cambridge scientists in England. Intensive high-yield farming techniques are thought to cause pollution, soil erosion and use up scarce water supplies. But intensive farming can spare more natural habitat from the plough. High yield agriculture uses enhanced pasture grazing systems, chemical fertilizer on crops and indoor dairy farming. Study results from four agricultural sectors indicate intensive farming’s use of less land may produce less pol-

lution but the team cautions if higher yields are sought only for more profit the extinction crisis will be accelerated. “Agriculture is the most significant cause of biodiversity loss on the planet,� said study lead author Andrew Balmford, professor of conservation science from Cambridge’s Department of Zoology. “Habitats are continuing to be cleared to make way for farmland, leaving ever less space for wildlife. “Our results suggest that high-yield farming could be harnessed to meet the growing demand for food without destroying more of the natural world. However, if we are to avert mass extinction it is vital that land-efficient agriculture is linked to more wilderness being spared the plough.� The study worked with Asian rice, Latin American beef, European wheat and European dairy produc-

tion. Field experiments show rice grown with inorganic nitrogen fertilizer boosted yields with little greenhouse gas increase and less water use per tonne of rice. Adding trees for shade in pastures was linked with cutting greenhouse gas emissions in half. The study’s organic dairy farm trials found that organic dairy farms take up twice as much land and cause onethird more soil loss than conventional dairy farms. Study authors say land use restrictions and restructured subsidies could encourage high yield production and spare more natural habitat from destruction for agriculture. They also suggest more study on this matter. Ron Walter can be reached at

Cuban music duo has close ties to Saskatchewan

Dúo Cofradía, a Cuban music duo from Trinidad consisting of Pachi Ruiz and Lia Llorente, will be taking the stage at the Mae Wilson Theatre on May 3, the second last show of a tour the two were determined to take. The three-week musical tour is taking Ruiz and Llorente around Saskatchewan, a province that holds a special place in their hearts as they were extremely close with Joe Fafard and family — the timing of the tour makes Llorente feel like it is almost an homage to their late friend. Their story really is compelling; the two met by chance for a music festival in their small city when Llorente began a last-minute search for a guitar player to accompany her in the show.

“It’s a feeling, like a rhythm; you’re feeling that music. The harmonies are what help people play this music in Cuba.” -Lia Llorente,

After performing together, with very little practice, and winning the competition, the pair decided to continue making music together; now, 21 years later, they are

Pachi (L) and Lia (R) return to Saskatchewan for their third tour, excited to once again spread the experience of Cuban music. married and doing exactly that. Their first trip to perform in Saskatchewan was in 2006, and Llorente spoke fondly of the experience. “The idea was to show us Saskatchewan and to bring musicians from Cuba, because always I think Cuban musicians go to Toronto, Montreal, the big circuits,” said Llorente. “We live in Trinidad, a small city, and we don’t like the big cities; for us, it’s complicated. And it was meaningful to be here, to learn, to see that big sky; it’s very flat. It was beautiful for

us, it was like another way, like the ocean without water.” During the trip, Ruiz and Llorente connected with Joe Fafard and his family and bonded; they found a familiarity in the arts and music communities of the prairies. “We have that connection with Joe’s family, and with Regina and Saskatchewan, it’s like our second place in the world,” said Llorente, who was determined to make it to the celebration of life for Fafard being held on May 5, despite the

closure of the Cuban embassy hindering their visas. Since 2006, the duo has continued to return to Saskatchewan to perform their music, which is an experience they truly enjoy sharing. “Cuban music is something so special, it’s a fusion between different rhythms. It’s a fusion between African and Spanish music, you know, how powerful those two kinds of music [are],” said Llorente. “It’s the nature of our music, the sound, the timbre,” said Ruiz. “We make all these instruments alive, and people like to listen to that.” “It’s a feeling, like a rhythm; you’re feeling that music. The harmonies are what help people play this music in Cuba,” said Llorente. “We play our Cuban music with all of our heart.” Dúo Cofradía performs their show with just a guitar, a minor percussion instrument, and a pair of harmonizing voices, yet they try to make it feel like an entire band; they want to share the energy of Cuban music and their own personal histories with their audiences. ‘The music is in a universal language. We know how to translate,” said Llorente. Tickets to the May 3 show are available on the Cultural Centre’s website, or by calling the box office at (306) 693-4700.

Jaw Express Province encouraging residents to abide by fire bans DULT Larissa Kurz


In response to the current wildfires outside Biggar, SK, and area, the provincial government is strongly advising residents to avoid any fire use in south-central Saskatchewan due to extremely dry conditions. “From Meadow Lake, basically all the way to the southern part of the province and probably into just east of Saskatoon and then south to the southern border — that whole south central and western area is under extreme fire behavior conditions at this point,” said provincial Fire Commissioner Duane McKay in a conference earlier today. “Now that doesn’t mean that there isn’t fire irritability quired. in the Regina area. That’s in high fire behavior area, and then it decreases as you go closer to Manitoba.” The advisory includes campfires, controlled grass or debris burning, and any activity that could cause sparking. McKay advises against any controlled burns at this time. EEKResidents are also advised to keep tabs on the fire bans in effect throughout the province and abide by them. There are currently 5 active wildfires, four of which are quired. reported to be contained. The uncontained fire is located near Big Island First Nation, northwest of Meadow Lake, bout and is approximately 50 hectares in size.

and any attempts to put a wildfire out should be approached from the sides, if at all. “While you may want to contain that fire the best you can, work obviously from the sides; do not get in front of this fire or any types of fire. In these kinds of conditions, it can move very rapidly and cause a lot of difficulties, so your personal safety is paramount,” said McKay. “There are volunteer fire departments that are very good at this, provincial resources that are available as well. So if you can get those activated, that’s primarily what you should be doing.” Dennis Truman, provincial wildfire manager, noted that conditions will continue this way as the weather continues to warm and no precipitation is seen, and that crews are on standby to monitor the situation. “As the conditions continue to warm up, our hazards will continue to increase,” said Truman. “We have some aircraft that should be ready today to assist with any fires that we get [reported], and we’ll go from there.” Wildfires can be reported through 911, and updated information about ongoing fire bans can be found online at

I don’t know how many out there still enjoy reading novels as a pastime but I would venture to say more do than don’t. Novels don’t necessarily have to be enjoyed anymore in the traditional hard cover or paperback form but can also be enjoyed digitally through a number of electronic devices. However you want to take it, reading Joan Ritchie will expand your borders EDITOR mentally and maybe even give you a chance to take a trip without leaving your armchair. Although funding to libraries is being cut in Ontario, funding continues to be a concern here, too, with an uneasiness that could threaten our regional libraries. On the other side of the coin, according to some individuals who spend time in the library forum internationally, they say that libraries are booming bigger than ever. It seems there is no lack of reading material, whether via the publishing companies or internet and the idea that libraries are closing is not even a threat. It would be a sad shame for our community libraries to cease to exist. It probably wouldn’t happen overnight but could over years, as federal and provincial funding continues to erode. These halls of wisdom with historical data would no longer be a venue for the population to access the books and archived material that they house. It’s a concern to me. There are a lot of literacy challenges in the province and, apparently, there is about a 50% challenged literacy rate in Saskatchewan. According to a number of educators, if parents want to help their kids succeed in school, it’s more about reading than about homework. Cutting funding to our libraries certainly will not help literacy statistics. On a positive literary note, Moose Jaw is gearing up for this year’s 23rd annual Festival of Words that will be taking place from July 19-22nd. As one of the major literary festivals in the country, this one is one of the most popular nationally and I think a lot of the credit goes to Sarah Simison as the director who astutely runs the festival organization. Twenty-five authors are expected to take part in over 60 events throughout Moose Jaw with a number of the most popular events like the Trivia Night and Poetry Slam taking part alongside workshops, panels readings, interviews and performances. A good reason for the festival’s popularity is that it strives to showcase Saskatchewan authors, as well as including a number of writers that span a multicultural scope within our communities on the prairies. We should be really proud of the talent born within our boundaries. If you would like more information on this year’s festival, please visit the Festival of Words’ website for a listing of authors and guests that will be showcasing their books and writings here.

Toastmasters International set to hold Spring Conference Three days of meetings and competition taking place at Heritage Inn throughout weekend Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

Some of the best public speakers in North America will be in Moose Jaw this coming weekend as part of the Toastmasters International District 42 Spring Conference. The event will see participants from all over southern Alberta and throughout Saskatchewan taking part, including the Toastmaster Area competition winners as they vie for top spot in their respective speaking categories. “It’s going to be a busy weekend but a fun weekend,” said Terry Kozlyk, public relations manager for District 42 Toastmasters. “We hold it once a year now, our District probably has more members from the southern Alberta side, including Calgary, but we still like to alternate our conference locations between Saskatchewan and Alberta, which is the best way to do it because we like to get out and about too, sometimes.” The event kicks off on Friday at 3 p.m. with registration, followed by a ‘first-timers’ meet-and-greet for new Toastmasters at 6 p.m. and the first contest – Table Topics – at 8 p.m. Using that contest as an example, each of the six Area winners will receive a pre-chosen topic and will speak ‘off-the-cuff’ for about two minutes, with the 12 anonymous judges in the crowd evaluating their performance. Once the event is completed, the judges will convene in another room and the six contestants will be interviewed by the competition host, after which the judges will finalize their decision and the winner will be announced. The same pattern will follow through the other three competition classes – Evaluation at 8 a.m. on Saturday, International at 2 p.m. Saturday and Humorous at 10:30 a.m. Sunday. Given the fact each of the competitors has won a qualifying event at the Club, Area and Division levels to qualify for Districts, the level of speaking and performance will be exceptionally high. “I’ve competed a bit and every level up is anoth-

er magnitude of competition and it’s like night and day,” Kolzyk said. “They’ll be really refined and skilled and it’s always interesting to see someone performing at that level.” The top speakers in the International contest will advance to the Region level and beyond, with their speeches being evaluated by video at the Toastmasters International offices in Denver, Col. for the first time in organization history. “It’s the first year we’re doing this and it’s a little controversial because people are saying that judging solely based on the video will be restricting,” Kolzyk said. “But as long as everyone is evaluated the same way from video, it’s a level playing field.” All four speech contests are open to the public, with a $10 fee enabling those interested to take in the event and see how contests work. “They’ll get to see not just the contestants compete, but also the interviews and how structured the contests are,” Kolzyk said. For more information, including a full schedule of events, check out the District 42 website at https://

Trump plans to move food safety inspections to industry employees from government By Ron Walter - For Agri-Mart Express


EXPRESS Trump administration’s red tape reductions in the United States have come to the meat processing industry, with proposals to switch from federal inspectors to industry-employed inspection. New regulations planned for May will cut the number of federal inspectors at pork plants by 40 per cent. Responsibility for identifying diseased and contaminated pork would be shared with plant employees. Their training will be left to plant owners. The regulations were suggested last June but Pat Basu, chief veterinarian with the United States Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service, refused to sign off on the new pork system over concerns about safety for consumers and livestock. The USDA sent the proposed regulations to the Federal Register about a week after Basu left the job. Basu was worried about giving plant workers the responsibility to identify and remove live diseased hogs when hogs arrive. He believed the job should remain with USDA veterinarians so they can identify contagious

diseases like foot and mouth. William James, head veterinarian in the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service from 2008 to 2011, helped develop the regulations. “More emphasis will be placed on preventing contamination rather than reacting to it afterwards,” he told the Los Angeles Times. “These (inspection) systems have evolved since the ’80s, and they will continue to do so. We cannot do things the same ways we’ve always done them.” USDA officials say they have no plans under the new system to test for salmonella. The agency will rely heavily on pathogen testing by plant owners, but test results will not have to be publicly disclosed. Nor will hog plants be required to test for E. coli. Joseph Ferguson, a former USDA hog inspector who retired in 2015 after 23 years under traditional inspection systems and a trial program that created the new system, says federal regulators lost control when plant workers took over. Hog carcasses whizzed by him and plant-paid inspectors at speeds so fast that fecal contamination — an important indicator for E. coli and salmonella — could not be detected.

“All the power gets handed over to the plant,” Ferguson said. “I saw the alleged inspections that were performed by plant workers. They weren’t inspections. They were supposed to meet or exceed USDA standards. I never saw that happen.” The proposed inspection rule is based on a study that began 20 years ago. Trump administration officials told industry groups they expect the proposed regulations to become final soon. Forty hog plants processing 90 per cent of the pork produced in the United States will start the new system. A USDA analysis of 35 of the 40 plants estimated the number of federal inspectors will shrink from 365 to 218. That analysis says the new system will save $6 million annually and large plants, by increasing line speeds by more than 12 per cent. The Trump administration also is working to shift inspection of beef to plant owners. USDA officials are meeting next month to discuss the proposed changes with the meat industry. Congress could block the new regulations. Ron Walter can be reached at

Military chaplain receives award for promoting sound mental health Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Fifteen Wing Moose Jaw’s Capt. Rev. Eric Davis has received the Minister of Veterans Affairs Commendation Award for his work in promoting sound mental health among serving members and veterans. Veterans Affairs Minister Lawrence MacAulay presented Davis with his award during a recent ceremony in Richmond, British Columbia. Thirteen other recipients also received the award in recognition of their support for veterans or commemorative activities. Davis is a military chaplain at the air base and is an administrator of the Facebook group Send Up the Count, which formed in 2013. This group acts as a mental health network for serving members and veterans. Two other administrators with the group also received the award. Humbled to receive award “I was happy (and humbled) to receive the award. The funny thing about it is, I think other members in the group also deserve it. There are 13,000 people who belong to the same group,” said Davis, who joined the military in 1993 at age 19. The name of the group is an infantry term, he explained. If there are eight troopers walking in the bush, they each whisper “send up the count” starting from the rear. Once it carries to the front, it ensures everyone is there; conversely, it also ensures the enemy has not infiltrated the group. Send Up the Count focuses on weighty matters such as suicide. However, Davis and other administrators attempt to keep all conversations clean, while in the event of an emergency, they call 911. Breaking the stigma It’s important to recognize this type of work since the stigma around mental health in the Canadian Forces needs to be broken down, Davis said. He pointed out the army is no different from any other societal organization. “It’s important that we normalize mental health, so people don’t have to sit and suffer in silence,” he continued. Send Up the Count offers a confidential place for veterans and serving members

Photo courtesy Veterans Affairs Canada to express their difficulties. Members can provide peer-to-peer counselling to others in distress. The group also attempts to catch members or veterans who have fallen through the cracks and not received help through federal programs. Davis pointed out one reason the group was started is because “it takes a veteran to understand a veteran.” Sometimes veterans or serving members feel as if non-military counsellors don’t understand them. “We are a specialized culture. If you are not part of the culture, it may be difficult to follow along with the things we experience and talk about,” he said. Davis recalls one incident in which he helped prevent a group member from hurting themselves. Three years later, he now sees that member enjoying life and being with their family. Experiencing mental illness Davis sometimes finds it difficult to be an advocate for mental illness in the military because of the stigma. He himself was diagnosed in 2000 with panic anxiety disorder after serving nearly 10 years

as a paramedic in the reserves. Marriage troubles and the loss of his first-born son have also affected him. Davis became a rank force chaplain in 2008 and has dealt with others’ mental

health issues ever since. He is the only chaplain at the air base — other military bases usually have more than one — and is the first point of contact for members looking for support. This means he is on call all day, every day to deal with emergencies. “We (as chaplains) are never off-duty,” he said. “It’s non-stop. There are very few times I can go on leave.” A joy to help others While it can be frustrating to be on-call continuously and not be able to travel anywhere beyond 30 minutes of Moose Jaw, Davis is thrilled to do the job since he enjoys providing such spiritual and psychological care. Besides, his phone normally rings about once a month from members looking for help. Davis is finishing a Master’s of Counselling degree at Briercrest College and Seminary. This will help him offer better support to the members and veterans he serves, including giving him the knowledge to know what to ask people. “A lot of the time people just need to talk,” he added. “I offer a safe place to talk. Now that I have the skills, it will benefit everybody.”

Hot Pressure Washers!! Music Festival Finals showcase the brightest talents Larissa Kurz

The annual Music Festival saw over 400 entries of talented young musicians perform for adjudicators, and the two-week event wrapped up on Apr. 14 with the presentation of the final awards show. The festival began with a choral portion, then moved on to the vocal, strings, piano, musical theatre, and band performances. Each performer worked with adjudicators to hone and perfect their technique, performance, and confidence, with the hopes of winning one of the many awards and scholarships. More than 65 scholarships and 20 awards were presented in various categories, from Most Outstanding Band Performance to Most Promising Vocalist. Eleven musicians were recommended on to the Saskatchewan Music Festival Provincial Competition, which will be held in Moose Jaw on May 30 to June 2, and Louren Sazon was recommended on to the National Competition taking place in Saskatoon on Aug. 8-10.

Brooke Zarubin, long-time participant in the Music Festival, took home five awards and scholarships this year.

Eleven Moose Jaw musicians were recommended to continue to the provincial music competition, and one to the national competition.

The Cornerstone Christian School Choir began the show with a performance of O’ Canada and You are the Lord.

Brooke Zarubin, recipient of several scholarships and awards, was pleased to have taken part in this year’s festival once again. Zarubin has been performing for nearly ten years and was recognized several times this year for her prowess in both vocals and piano. To her, music is a meaningful connection she gets to make with those who support her and watch her perform. “I just think it’s a blessing. I’m going to tear up talking about it. . . I was blessed with the gift of music and I love sharing that with other people,” said Zarubin. “Like the

scholarships are nice, but for me, it’s about sharing my music with other people.” This is not Zarubin’s first festival; she’s been participating since she was very young, and she’s greatly enjoyed the experience she’s had. “I think it’s a really good experience. I’ve met a lot of really close friends here,” said Zarubin. “I can thank the Music Festival for some of the relationships I’ve built and it’s nice to be able to support each other, you know. Some of these people, they’re some of my best friends, but I only see them at music festivals.”

If the El Nino dominates weather, farmers in south-central, southwestern and central Saskatchewan can expect more rainfall during the spring and summer. “The spring bias is to be wetter,” Drew Lerner of World Weather Inc. told MarketsFarm. “You will encounter that most likely in May.” The El Nino pattern is expected to reduce rain in northwestern Alberta, particularly in the Peace River farming bloc.

Riverside Mission hosts special Easter meal for marginalized residents By Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Brent Mosley appreciates the support Riverside Mission has given him for the past four months, since the non-profit organization essentially saved his life and helped him get back on his feet. Mosley, 57, lived at the men’s shelter this past winter since he had nowhere to stay. He had exhausted all his money while researching a family tragedy, so he decided to move to Moose Jaw from Assiniboia after living there the past 10 years. “They helped me get an apartment (here). Everything I got, I got from them. The clothes I’m wearing, my dishes, pots and pans, everything,” he said on April 18 while having supper at Riverside Mission. “When it gets 35 (Celsius) below in the winter, I got no place to go … I had no idea there was a place to go. “I thought it was the end of the line for me.” Riverside Mission held a special Easter supper for its clients on Thursday night. Similar to its Christmas meal, the organization served residents in an upscale, classy manner. The tables were set with clean white table cloths, folded lavish napkins and flower vases. Instead of coming up for food, staff and volunteers came to the tables with the food. Diners could choose from Caesar salad or tossed salad, roast beef or stuffed pork loin, and Black Forest or peanut butter cheesecake. Clients also took home a bag of Lindor chocolates. Nearly 100 clients took part in the meal, which featured two sitting times. The Christian charity held a donation drive in the weeks before to help put on the supper. Organizers say the response from the community was amazing, as more than $7,000 was given. All of the money will stay in Moose Jaw and ensure the organization keeps operating. It will also help expand men’s programs in the future. The sit-down restaurant-style meal “is an exercise in dignity,” explained Jacob Oddie, chaplain for Riverside Mission. “Some people are not able to sit in a restaurant, so (instead) they get to have an experience (of one) … . “When they’re being served like that, it makes a person feel better.” Destiny Wolfe, 11, took part in the Easter meal with her mother, Shawna Foster, just as they had done at Christmas. Wolfe and her mother eat supper at the Mission five nights a week since they are facing financial hardship. “It’s really good. It’s healthy,” Wolfe said about the food. “It’s really fun here. I get to meet new kids. I help

“When it gets 35 (Celsius) below in the winter, I got no place to go … I had no idea there was a place to go. ...I thought it was the end of the line for me.” -Brent Mosley

As for the Easter meal, “It was really good,” she added. Easter is a time when families gather together to celebrate, said Rachel Mullens, manager of Riverside Mission. The organization realizes many of its clients don’t have those connections, so it creates an environment where everyone can feel welcomed and not feel

as if this is another ordinary day. “One part of our mandate is to feed people (as Jesus Christ said to), so this is a special way to feed the community,” she said. “It’s a pleasure for staff at Riverside Mission to do these events. We go the extra mile for these things.” Nearly a dozen volunteers helped serve, including several members of a friendship group with the Moose Jaw Alliance Church. Judy Rysavy and her husband Roy were two of those volunteers. Mrs. Rysavy explained that the friendship group served the meal at Christmas, so they “felt a strong devotion to come back again to help.” “It’s to show the love of Jesus by helping others,” added Mr. Rysavy. “We have been blessed (with so much) in this country, so we are being a blessing to others.”

I Am A Keeper!

I became aware of them just after we moved to Liarton and had a bigger yard with more gardens, both flower and vegetable. We use honey as our sweetener of choice and thought it would by Dale “bushy� Bush be fun to have a honey bee hive to supply our sweet needs and to pollinate the gardens. We dialed up the interwwweb and did some research and discovered that bee keeping can be initially expensive to get outfitted with all the latest and proper gear. On top of that initial expense, there is the cost of the bees themselves, which I had never even considered, and that is when we were told about Mason Bees. We were educated about mason bees by our neighbour. Because he is a retired botanist, we knew he knew what the scoop was on these tiny little pollinators. Smaller than a honey bee, you have probably seen them. It never registers they are a bee because they are often darker and about half the size of the easily identified honey bee. I believe that the honey bee has a much better reputation as a hard worker,

simply because they have a better press agent. In reality, a mason bee pollinates about ten times as much as the their prettier and more well publicized cousins but mason bees are solitary (lonely?) and only need to take care of the eggs she lays as opposed to a hive society. They are ugly and look like a fly, but they collect pollen for the same reason honey bees do, that is to feed the next generation. All a mason bee needs is a crack or naturally occurring hole; that is where the female lays a single egg at a time in cocoons made of mud, hence the name mason bee. Did I just say “hence’? No workers or staff to deal with and even the males are expendable because they die a few days after mating. That also means no honey production to feed the hive‌ or me! The eggs are laid one at a time and are separated by mud with the males emerging first near the “entranceâ€?. The females follow a few days later from the rear of the hole. The males are totally obsessed with‌er‌ahem‌pro-creation. In some cases, rather than wait for the females to emerge naturally, the males will help speed the process by digging the females out. The wise males would be smarter to pace themselves because they die a few days after pro-creating but when a mason bee goes into “rutâ€? there is no explaining anything to them. Mason bees are wild and surprisingly common. You

can give them a head start by buying cocoons in the spring and providing a bee house for them and their offspring. Our total cost for a dozen cocoons and a small bee house with paper tubes for the future eggs was about $35. I consider that to be a minor cost because they are somewhat entertaining. By daily checking the bee “housesâ€?, we now have a second larger bee residence, I am a good landlord. You could say we collect our bee rent by having a well pollinated and successful garden and we are not tasked with the upkeep and responsibilities of keeping honey bees. We do not even need to wear all that expensive and cool looking sting preventing masks and coveralls because mason bees are stinger challenged. Without a hive and thousands of bees to protect, mason bees have become less aggressive and peace-loving hard workers. They do sting but only when squeezed or in a bar fight. I am lazy enough to keep on keeping on being a keeper because mason bees are‌ keepers. Bee seeing you!

Composting questions answered Larissa Kurz

For those who have ever wondered about the ins and outs of composting, a recent lecture at the Public Library by Jenna Drinnan answered some of the most common questions asked by those getting into the practice. “Composting is forgiving,� said Drinnan, as she was explaining her routine. She recommended backyard composting as the easiest type of composting for most households and offered a number of pointers to get started. The first step is to choose a bin, as compost is more efficient if contained rather than left in an open pile. Drinnan (Shutterstock) noted that bins called Earth Machines are available to citThe next step is to choose the location; compost decays izens of Moose Jaw at City Hall for $25 plus tax from the at a much quicker rate if exposed to regular sunlight, alengineering department and are easy to use. though convenience — in regards to how far you’re willIt’s also viable to build a compost bin of your own; wood ing to carry kitchen scraps and how close to your garden or plastic, it doesn’t change how the decomposing proyou’d like it to be — certainly plays a factor. cess functions.

Greens are nitrogen-rich organic materials like kitchen scraps, plant material, coffee grounds and so on. Browns are carbon-rich materials, like dried leaves, wood chips, eggshells, and even pet hair.

M&M Hair & Body

Shaylene Nagel would like to invite all her friends and former clients to visit her at M&M Hair and Body.

Keeping a balance and aerating the pile often — which is as simple as just poking into the centre to make airways — can ensure the decomposing material doesn’t smell or stall out. Keeping it moist, like a wrung-out sponge, also keeps the process going. Drinnan noted that composting is, of course, beneficial for gardeners seeking to return valuable nutrients to their soil each year, but she also noted that composting is helpful for landfill waste reduction as well. Compostable materials in landfills go through what Drinnan called anaerobic composting, which means they decay without the presence of oxygen and produce methane gas — very harmful to the atmosphere. Compost bins, however, go through aerobic composting because they are given oxygen during the process. Though it may seem like a lot of work, Drinnan explained that it doesn’t have to be; she keeps her kitchen scraps in a pail under her sink and takes them to her bin twice a week. She also keeps a bin by her back door for the winter, so she can collect scraps even in the bitter cold. A healthy compost bin shouldn’t smell or attract animals and is an easy way to help with landfill space, as Drinnan said around 35% of a household’s garbage is compostable material.

Trino’s high quality men’s fashion fills gap in Moose Jaw By Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Providing quality customer service is important to Trina Johnson and her staff at Trino’s Menswear, with that aspiration earning the business a nomination for a Paragon Award in Regina recently. “We definitely listen to client’s wants and needs. We make it fast and efficient, because a lot of men don’t love shopping,� chuckled Johnson. Trino’s Menswear — which opened in Moose Jaw recently at 33 High Street West — keeps clients’ sizes on file, including a description of their likes, the trends to which they gravitate, and whether they want to dress more conservatively or more fashionably. If the client really dislikes shopping, he can send his significant other to purchase his clothing for him using the data on file, Johnson said. “It’s easy-peasy,� she added. “It’s the get ’er done concept.� Johnson opened her business in Regina 11 years ago. She had the idea to start a fashion-forward menswear store in the Queen City, and with that city’s east end booming and commercial base increasing, she saw an opportunity to open her business. The former Moose Jaw resident opened

Antonio Trino’s here since she thought there was a need for classy dress attire in the menswear sector. She wanted to provide men with options for formal suits, dress shirts, jackets, ties and similar fashion apparel. However, she didn’t see many businesses offering that; she noticed more casual menswear. “I felt there might have been a need, plus I have a lot of clients that come to my

existing Regina store,� said Johnson. “They’ve always said, ‘You know, if you ever want to open another store, come to Moose Jaw.’ They’d shop more if they didn’t have to drive.� It’s important for men to have high quality fashion since they exude confidence when they’re well dressed, she explained. They feel good about themselves and perform better on the job. Johnson point-

ed out everyone feels better when they’re dressed well. Before she opened her Regina store, many of Johnson’s male friends asked her what they should wear on a date or if what they were wearing was acceptable for a job interview. Many men ask their girlfriends or female friends what they should wear, which is why she has female employees on staff. In Regina and Moose Jaw, the business shares the same building as Bib and Tucker Clothing, a women’s clothing boutique. That partnership began more than a year ago, explained Johnson. Both businesses relocated to a new location in Regina and were adjacent to each other, with adjoining doors so customers could easily move from one to the other. “That idea has done well here in Regina,� she continued. When a location became available in Moose Jaw, that allowed Bib and Tucker Clothing to have ladies’ clothes up front and men’s clothes at the back, with both sharing one roof. We’re happy to be there,� Johnson added. “I lived there a long time ago and I love the community. I’m excited to be a part of it.�

Meeting to help students understand financing options for post-secondary education By Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express Reporter

Attempting to pay for post-secondary education can be stressful, so Vanier Collegiate wants to help students and families better understand what financing options are available to them. Finance Your Education takes place on Wednesday, May 8 at 7 p.m. in the Vanier Collegiate library, located at 324 MacDonald Street. The meeting is geared toward students in grades 11 and 12 and their parents/guardians, plus past graduates who are considering post-secondary. However, all high school students are welcome to attend. This meeting is open to all students in both school divisions in Moose Jaw and surrounding area. Employees with Conexus Credit Union will discuss topics such as: • Accessing RESPs • Student line of credit and accounts • Canada and Saskatchewan student loans • Scholarships and bursaries • Financial literacy tips This meeting will help families understand how to pay for university, college or a trades school, explained Christa Lapointe, a business education teacher and career counsellor at Vanier. “It can be a daunting task trying to figure out where to go to school, what to take, but also how to pay for it,” she said. This

Having those skills ensures students can make better decisions, whether it’s longterm or day-to-day, Lapointe continued.

A societal burden that is too often neglected

by Dr. Steven Heidinger, Moose Jaw Chiropractor

I recently read an editorial published in a 2011 issue of a Canadian pain journal, written by the then Canadian Pain Society president, Dr. Mary Lynch. The first sentence in the article was, “Pain is poorly managed in Canada.” What a sobering and true statement. Spinal pain is the most common condition I see in my own office. We see an equal balance of acute and chronic spinal pain patients. Research tells us that 80 percent of Canadians will suffer an acute episode of back pain at least once in their lifetime. The good thing about acute pain is that most cases resolve within a relatively short

off to post-secondary and not know how to access that program. Conexus will help families understand how to take advantage of it. Some students might not be able to access RESPs at all, so they might look at lines of credit, said Lapointe. This will help them understand how to borrow money and how to save money. “A lot of students might never have learned to get a co-signer before or a guarantor before,” she added. Scholarships and awards are important and are usually offered by the institu-

period of time. The big problem which arises for society is when pain becomes chronic, in other words, lasting a very long time. One in 5 Canadians experience chronic pain, a number that increases with age. Back pain, headaches, joint and nerve pain make up the more common sources of chronic pain. I’d say this is an epidemic and I would agree with the comment, “pain is poorly managed in Canada.” Chronic pain involves more Canadians than does cancer, diabetes or heart disease. The economic consequence of chronic pain is far greater than these big three diseases. At least once a year, I get a phone call or a knock on the door from canvassers representing each of the Cancer society, Heart and Stroke Foundation and Diabetes Canada. I do not recall ever seeing someone show up at my front door representing the Canadian Pain Society. Considering the impact that chronic pain has on society, this burden is poorly funded. Lifestyle and psychological factors contribute greatly to chronic pain. Too many Canadians are far too sedentary

tion that students are attending. It can be overwhelming to look into those, said Lapointe, so this discussion can help students know how to access this free money. Federal and provincial student loans can also help students finance their education. “No one is ever going to get enough money through student loans or anything else,” Lapointe said, so the presentation will also help students understand how to find summer jobs and how to manage their money to supplement their education. “Education is an investment, but you also want to manage that and be smart about how to pay it down or go through school with the least amount of debt as possible,” she added. Lapointe teaches classes in entrepreneurship and accounting, so she has more opportunity to connect with students about finances. She pointed out that several schools in Saskatchewan have started teaching personal finance courses, while other classes such as life transitions can teach about money. “It’s definitely worthwhile for families to start talking, educating and having more conversations,” she added, “because while time flies, these types of decisions can sneak up on people quickly.”

both at work and at home. Too many Canadians battle stress and anxiety related to both work and at home as well. Too many Canadians do not exercise enough and have poor coping mechanisms for dealing with their stresses. It’s because of this that it should not be surprising that chronic pain is as big of a problem that it is in Canada. With the overuse of pain medications, both over the counter and prescription, it is clear that pain is poorly managed in Canada. With the opioid epidemic and opioid related deaths that we see in Canada, it is crystal clear that pain is poorly managed in Canada. Unless Canadians can better afford non-publicly funded treatments offered by physiotherapists, chiropractors, massage therapists and acupuncturists, chemical treatment and the potential for dependency will persist. Pain is poorly managed in Canada. I cannot say it often enough. With a provincial election year on the horizon, I wait for signs that politicians will start to take more seriously this burden on society.

Council’s new garbage regulations nothing more than tax grab The people Moose Jaw voters elected to run city council took another poke at taxpayers’ eyes this month. The issue this by Ron Walter time is the new restrictions on the two free landfill collection periods. Since around 1990, the city has offered residents two weeks of free admittance to the dump with garbage — once in the spring, once in the fall. Under new regulations approved by our city council, this will be restricted to two days on a weekend in the fall and in the spring, and only grass or tree clippings

will be accepted. When the free collection periods were implemented some 30 years ago, these two periods were a concession to taxpayers offering them something in return for a service the city quit providing. To save money that council ended first the spring, then the fall clean-up. In those twoweek clean-up periods, city crews picked up anything left by residents — grass, tree branches, tires, furniture, appliances and so on. The council of the day offered the free haul periods in lieu of the clean-ups, hoping that everyone would have access to a truck or trailer to haul their junk to the landfill. A considerable amount of complaining occurred as always happens when a longstanding service is removed. The two free collection periods seem to have worked reasonably all these years.

Now council, at the recommendation of city administration, has severely cut the days for free haul by 86 per cent. The reason offered up for this drastic change supposes that reducing the free hauls will help save space in the landfill. The landfill is nearing the end of its provincially permitted life. That supposition is clearly wrong. The material will probably end up in the landfill anyway, just collected by the sanitation trucks, or residents will pay to haul it in. Or some garbage will end up being dumped in alleys or district ditches. According to information at council two current weeks of free hauling saw 9,000 visits to the landfill, In four days, the city might manage to have 2,000 visits. That leaves 7,000 loads of garbage not hauled in. Likely council and administration are hoping the 7,000 loads will pay $10 to dump

in the landfill — providing the city with $70,000 revenues. The $70,000 would amount to a 1.3 per cent increase to the landfill’s $5.2 million take from taxpayers in garbage collection fees, recycling fees and landfill admission fees. This council regulation sure sounds like a crude tax grab by the city – a tax grab most likely to backfire as residents leave garbage in lanes or leave material for costly city pick-up. What makes even less sense is the short notice to residents of the free haul termination just weeks before the spring free haul is to happen. It seems our dear council has assumed the position of a hard-hearted bureaucrat — let them complain, they’ll get used to it. Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@

Moose Jaw’s yard waste weekend scheduled for May 11 and 12 Moose Jaw Express Staff

Residents will be able to dispose of their organic refuse during the City of Moose Jaw’s Yard Waste Weekend on Saturday, May 11 and Sunday, May 12. During this two-day collection, the municipality will waive the $10 residential tipping fee at the landfill for residents who want to dispose of organic yard waste, such as leaves, grass clippings and pruned branches no larger than one inch in diameter. Residents are welcome to transport their organic yard waste in trailers behind their light vehicles; however, dual-axle and commercial trucks are not eligible for the fee waiver. Those disposing of non-organic household waste,

construction materials and other items such as furniture, mattresses and appliances will be subject to regular landfill fees based on material and weight. To increase efficiency, the municipality will create a designated yard waste zone, have staff inspect loads at the entrance and direct vehicles to the appropriate area. The city reminds residents that according to city bylaw No. 5156, Section 23, tarpaulins are required to secure loads and violations will be issued for loads not secured by a tarp. This will keep roads and streets safe and free of debris. For more information, call city hall at 306-694-4400.

Moose Jaw’s Cole Pringle receives drug coverage for rare disease Years of advocacy and work pay off as insurance company, province opt to cover immense costs for life-saving medication Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

Imagine you have a life-threatening disease and a medication exists that could potentially change your life. Unfortunately, that medication has been so prohibitively expensive that there was almost no way you could afford to take it. And because the condition is so rare, insurance companies and provincial health plans had no interest in relieving your burden. On the offensive, for years you advocate for yourself and others with no result. And then one day, almost out of nowhere, a miracle happens. Such is the case for Moose Jaw’s Cole Pringle, who was recently informed that the newly developed medication Spinraza had been approved for coverage by his insurance company and that treatment for his rare condition – known as spinal muscular atrophy – could begin immediately and would be fully covered. Shortly thereafter, the province of Saskatchewan announced that the drug and the regimen needed for it to take effect would also be covered by the provincial health plan. It marks the end of a tireless and remarkable run of advocacy and outright pressure by Pringle, his family, friends and supporters to try and have the medication covered not only for himself, but for people enduring the disease all over the province and Canada. “I just want to thank everybody again in Moose Jaw and all over the place who helped me and everyone who helped out and made this happen for us,” said Pringle, who uses a wheelchair for mobility due to the disease but lives a full life working in Regina. “I don’t know where I’ll end up, but right now the sky’s the limit and I’m willing to put in as much time and effort as I need to, to get as much out of it as I can.” Here are the basics of Pringle’s situation, much of which comes from a Moose Jaw Express article from last October covering

a fundraiser for Pringle at Ortley’s Lounge and Grill in the Lynbrook Golf Club. SMA is a rare neuromuscular disorder that causes progressive muscle wasting and impairs muscular control, eventually affecting the lungs and inhibiting unassisted breathing. Most children born with the disease die before the age of two. Pringle was diagnosed with an intermediate form of the disease as a baby and has lived with its progressive effects well into adulthood. “The change is slow and gradual,” Pringle said of his physical mobility with SMA. “If you compared me to where I was 10 years ago, you’d see a lot of changes when it comes to my mobility and energy levels, things like that. Day to day there’s no real changes, but thinking back to where I was, it’s a huge change. But I’m quite fortunate since it can be a lot worse for some people.” But Spinraza has given hope, dramatically increasing strength and movement in patients in cases in Europe and the United States. The problem is the unbelievable cost – each injection is $120,000 and at the time he would have needed the minimum of three doses a year to see an effect, for a total of $360,000 per year for the rest of his life. “It was kind of a thing where everyone I was talking too, just online and whatever, was saying ‘no private insurance is covering this, so don’t bother with it’,” Pringle said in a conversation with “Even my neurologist told me ‘don’t bother’ because it was just a waste of time. And we were like ‘okay, fine’. But after months and months of fighting this we just said ‘let’s throw it out there and see what happens, it can’t hurt’ and to our surprise the insurance came back and said this is a covered drug under your plan and basically we’re navigating that now and I’m waiting for my first shot.” That was just the beginning of the good

His regimen will start in the very near future and will involve the first four doses coming two weeks apart each, after which he’ll have follow-ups every four months. There’s very little concrete data to indicate precise results, but the difference has been seen in other patients. One who Pringle follows online went from near total immobility to gaining control of his neck, an

improvement of immense proportions in such a case. For others, it’s been a dramatic increase in strength and mobility and a new lease on life. “There’s no reason to believe it wouldn’t help and it’s not like the disease changes when you turn 13,” Pringle said, “so there’s no data ther, but there is a lot of anecdotal stories from people in Europe and the States who have been getting it, adults who are older than me who are seeing good results… There are lots of videos of people who are showing the different weight they can lift; I can maybe lift a couple of pounds, but I’ve seen people go from 10 pounds to 30 pounds overnight. It’s like it seems to be there’s a big jump after two or three doses and then it’s a gradual increase after that.” Whatever improvement he sees will go a long way to research on the drug and his disease, as his neurologist has made an arrangement with Biogen, manufacturer of Spinraza, to use his data as a case study. “I’m going to be one of the first three, four or five people over the age of 12 that are getting this drug in the country,” Pringle said. “That’s another reason I want to keep working as hard as I can and get as much out of it as I can because there are other people in this country who might benefit from that data, so I want to do the best I can and hope they get the treatment from what I provide.” Right now, Quebec and Saskatchewan are the only provinces covering the drug, and Pringle plans to use his newfound strength to help get it to be included in drug plans throughout Canada. “I’m overjoyed that things have worked out for me and I’m hoping I’ll be able to help others who need it all across the country,” he said. “There’s still lots I can do and if I can help more people get the treatment they need, then I’ll be more than happy.”

REFLECTIVE MOMENTS Is my paint-by-number suitable for museum?



If I knew then what I know now, friends and family might well be in an art gallery somewhere, admiring the works of art created by Yours Truly Joyce Walter through paintbynumber For Moose Jaw Express kits. I’m sure anyone of my age had such an artistic kit with which masterpieces were to be created. In fact, there might be one in a box in the far, dusty corner of a storage area. Certainly, the paints would be dried dust by now but perhaps there might be value in a half-finished painting of puppies or kittens. This recent interest in a hobby of my youth came about when I read a story about the death of one of the artists responsible for taking paint-by-number from an idea to a successful retail and artistic endeavour. Dan Robbins probably wasn’t a household name but in 1950 he took his idea to his employer, the Palmer Paint Company in Detroit and with some show-and-tell experiments with his employer and the public, paint-by-number kits were launched. While artists of some note turned their noses up at the idea that masterpieces could be produced by ordinary folks who had to rely on numbered designs, Robbins quickly pointed out that Leonardo da Vinci made such numbered designs for his helpers. Therefore, if Leo used them, don’t put those noses too high in the air. Over the course of close to 70 years, sales of paint-by-number and paint-by-crayon kits thrived, and such has been the success that finished works are displayed in galleries and museums. As well, a PaintBy-Number online museum has been established that showcases more than 6,000 completed art works.

One of the selling features was health-related, they being used as a form of therapy to increase self-confidence, and improve motor skills and hand and arm movements. And they are proven to increase one’s concentration. I loved crayon colouring as a youth and still enjoy it today. Therefore, I recall begging the parents to buy me a beginner paint-by-number box. They provided the usual excuse: “No, they’re too expensive.” But it might have been Christmas or my birthday when they caved in and provided me with what I suspect they hoped would be a hobby that would be more successful than knitting or sewing. The topic of the design escapes me, but I was determined to finish my first painting and then move on to one with more challenges. Hurry up was my downfall even though I was warned I couldn’t paint numbers beside each other until the paint was dried. But that took too long and so I ventured forward and created quite an abstract design of my own with several colours of wet paint globbing onto each other. From my recollection, my Mother finished that first painting, doing a colour a day while I was away at school where I confounded the teacher with my stick people and lack of any eye for colour. The memory is vague here but I do believe I received subsequent kits and finished some of them to look somewhat like the picture on the box. I do not recall any family member or friend offering to hang them in the living-room, kitchen or outhouse. But then that was years before the significance of the finished product was known. If I were painting today, perhaps I would be scouted for an online show — or not. Then again, the $3.99 kit of a cat might just be what I need to increase my confidence as a wanna-be artist.

Canadian wireless technology supplier poised for growth, even profit An Ontario company playing in the wireless communications industry appears set to post increased sales and profits in the coming years. Baylin Technologies of Markham, Ontario designs, develops and manufactures radio-frequency and amplifying devices for the wireless communications sector with 800 clients on a worldwide basis. One division provides sensitive equipment for military, government and infrastructure clients. The continued development of 4G communications systems and the new 5G systems will benefit Baylin sales tremendously as the need for ever more towers using the equipment made by Baylin grows. This part of the wireless business is highly competitive but once a carrier chooses a supplier they tend to stay with that supplier. This supplier relationship partly explains the American president’s obsession with Chinese technology, specifically the Huwaei corporation, which threatens to dominate 5G.

Since 2013 Baylin has increased the customer base from 130 to the current 800, also reducing reliance on large single customers. Last year Baylin invested around $75 million acquiring two companies, Advantech and Alga. Advantech supplies critical equipment to military, government and infrastructure customers. Alga business comes from radio frequency microwave amplifiers and radar amplifiers. Five company research and development facilities operate to keep the company abreast and ahead in new product design and development. Baylin spent $15.3 million, or almost nine per cent of revenues on research and development last year. Revenues soared last year by 48 per cent to just over $170 million, but the company posted a loss of $3.8 million compared with a loss of $4.2 million in 2017. Last year’s loss was affected by acquisition costs. In fact, Baylin hasn’t turned a profit since 2013 when operations earned $829,000 but has been cash flow

positive for these last five years. Debt sits at $30 million, up from zero in 2017, the year before the two acquisitions. Manufacturing captures lower costs with facilities in China, Korea and Vietnam as well as Canada and United States. Sales grew handsomely last year in all four major global regions with highest growth rates – doubling in North America and showing a seven-fold increase in Europe, Middle East and Africa. At a recent share price of $3.82, Baylin shares are in between the low of $2.90 last June and the high of $4.50 on February 11. Contrary to the rest of the market Baylin shares seem to be moving lower in the short term but future potential could create another Canadian high tech giant.

Palliser Regional Library concerned about funding cuts to Ontario libraries By Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express Reporter

The Government of Ontario intends to reduce funding to the Ontario Library Service to address the province’s $11.7-billion deficit, a move that Palliser Regional Library is monitoring closely. “We are watching with deep interest and grave concern,” said director/CEO Jan Smith. “This could easily spread throughout the country. We just fought this (same battle) in 2017. We wish Ontario libraries luck … They are a resource that is needed.”

“I wish Ontario the best of luck in their battle,” Smith added. “We need to be on their side and help them win.”

- Director/CEO of Palliser Regional Library, Jan Smith The Ontario government tabled its 2019-20 budget in early April. The Ontario Library Service — composed of northern and southern branches — delivers services on behalf of the Ontario Minister of Tourism, Culture and Sport. The province plans to reduce the ministry’s funding to $1.49 billion from $1.59 billion. The northern and southern library services support public libraries in various ways, from running the interlibrary loan and delivery program to offering training for library staff and volunteers. Both

services have budgets of around $3 million; those will be halved to $1.5 million each. The idea of cutting funding to libraries could spread since Ontario Premier Doug Ford’s decisions are contagious, said Smith. The Saskatchewan government attempted to do something similar two years ago but reversed its decision after public outcry. At that time, Palliser Regional Library saw its budget cut by 58 per cent before funding was restored. Libraries are an important community resource, especially when economies struggle as they are in Saskatchewan and Ontario, Smith pointed out. Whenever that happens, people need access to resources, entertainment and recreation, plus places to gather and meet. A Palliser library card indicates how much money you save when you check out books, she continued. A friend’s 11-year-old son saves $6,000 a year since he is an avid reader. Libraries also provide more than just books. For example, they supply information, newspapers, learning supports and job assistance, and other social services. “We are an aging population across this country,” Smith continued. Seniors have more free time and want to be reading and actively taking part in programming. They want e-services and access to large-print books — on their cellphones, tablets, e-readers and as actual books.

“They are looking for a host of services that you and I take for granted these days,” added Smith, adding seniors are downloading books “like crazy” just as much as young people are. One service that the library offers, Press Reader, allows readers to access more than 7,000 world newspapers in 92 languages. This means grandparents in Moose Jaw could read about news in Tulsa, Okla., where their grandchildren live. Smith worked for Ontario Library Service North for 13 years, before moving west in 1999.

Ontario, she believes this same situation could happen again in Saskatchewan, possibly within five years. She also believes Canadians from coast to coast might also have to fight their provincial governments against funding cuts to libraries. Such cuts happen since there is a “misguided idea that you can find everything on the internet and that the internet is free,” both of which she says are untrue. “I wish Ontario the best of luck in their battle,” Smith added. “We need to be on their side and help them win.”

Three generations of antiques at Gravelbourg area farm auction sale By Ron Walter - For Moose Jaw Express

The spring farm auction season has kicked-off with one of the first at the Lionel and Helen Bouvier farm northwest of Gravelbourg. The Bouvier name is so well-known in this district that Gravelbourg. residents used to call the area Bouvierville. Some old-timers claimed there actually was a town called Bouvierville. Three generations of antiques on auction included items that Bouvier’s grandmother had saved and collected. One district woman, her eye on a butter churn, whispered to a friend what she waned but feared antique dealers would bid the Medalta piece too high. The butter churn sold for $110; a Medalta water cooler from an old one-room school went for $105. “What are you doing here?” a farmer asked his neighbour. “I got rained out,” came the joking reply. A box of old bottles sold for $18. Two boxes of small vases went for $5. A one-drawer oak Edwards 1924 cash register fetched $70. A 1936 Saskatchewan Wheat Pool calendar sold for $40 while a box of old calendars from the district sold for $20. Nineteen model stationary engines in a box sold for $25 each. A rope maker went for $110. A box of old clothing irons contained one that opened to stick in a hot piece of coal or hot brick while the farm wife made her family’s clothes neat. Lunch, including home-made saskatoon, blueberry or cherry pie, was done by the Mossbank 4-H Club. Ron Walter can be reached at

Lucid “Lu” Knight The eighth annual Awards Night will be held in the community hall this coming Friday. Hope all area folks can attend. Awards to be presented are for: Pillar of the Community; Best Job Creation Idea; Swiftest Walker User; Best Pet and Best Pet Story. Last year the Best Pet Story Award went to a guy from Moose Jaw who talked for an hour about his brown dog. Seems his dog does everything most people do except pick up its droppings. The owner went on and on about his dog. The Committee voted to give him the award, to shut him up. It worked. He drove north up the service road honking his horn with the hand made wooden 2X4 trophy sticking out the passenger side window attracting attention to his-self.

Fern Valley News: Awards Festival – Opening of the Campgrounds It’s a mystery why he didn’t bring the dog to the Fern Valley contest. Arnold had seen the guy before – said he was a talker and figured he didn’t own a dog. Arnold said the guy talked politics so much over coffee in town he bet if the guy had a dog it’d be named Trudeau. The speaker did hint his dog was bi-lingual. The awards for Pillar of the Community and Best Job Creation Idea has gone un-awarded for a couple of years. There is only one nomination for both awards so far – Arnold. The Swiftest Walker User is the most popular event. ‘Mature Folks’ race their Walkers along a designated course. It always gets the most participants. Ryan False from Moose Jaw was Adjudicator and Flagman last year. He’s moved to Biggar. A new Adjudicator and Flagman has been named. Because of the fracas at the end of last year’s race he asked to remain anonymous. Campground Open The Fern Valley Campground opened early with some lovely additions. The problems encountered last fall

at the Accordion and Bag-Pipe Festival are behind us. People come from all over Saskatchewan and northern Montana for the event. They stay at our luxurious campground, that got over-booked last year. Folks got really upset – kind of got out of hand. Me and the Committee hired a couple of the Hoffer boys to rebuild the outhouses, put a new roof on the cook house, fix picnic tables and groom the trails. Them boys does good work. Problem was with Arnold. He worked the gate and didn’t turn nobody away. He let them in if they paid the gate fee. There were more people there than was at the annual “St. Victor – Where’d I Park My Motorcycle” event. We had lots of bikers too. They come to heard Haggis O’Connor play Blues Music on his bagpipes. They were not disappointed. Until next time Lucid Lu Knight, Fern Valley, via the Mossbank Post Office, Saskatchewan

H o m e m a k e rs o n t h e i r o w n w i t h Fa n n ie’s p u dd i n g s Fannie Farmer had a great deal to say in her instructions on how to prepare nearly every form of edible offerings from the home kitchen. However, she had no special insights in the pudding section of her 1896 Boston School Cook Book. Perhaps she thought the careful directions she provided would be sufficient for homemakers to prepare the perfect dessert pudding. ••• Poor Man’s Pudding 4 cups milk 1/2 cup rice 1/3 cup molasses 1/2 tsp. salt 1/2 tsp. cinnamon 1 tbsp. butter Wash rice, mix in milk, molasses, salt and cinnamon. Then add butter and stir. Pour into a buttered pudding dish and bake for about three hours in a slow oven.

Moose Jaw’s High Street West was voted the worst road in the province last year during CAA Saskatchewan’s annual campaign, but will another street in the community make this year’s list? Based on the preliminary Top 10 list on CAA Saskatchewan’s website, Moose Jaw is nowhere to be seen. Instead, as of April 26, the worst road in the province is Highway 26 near Goodsoil, which is northwest of Meadow Lake. Other nominees for worst road include Highway 21 at Paradise Hill, which is northeast of Lloydminster; Highway 795 at Livelong, which is northeast of Paradise Hill; Highway 26 at Loon Lake, which is southwest of Meadow Lake; and then seven streets in Regina. Moose Jaw businesswoman Carmella Park, owner of Ballet on Broadway on High Street West, helped CAA launch its 2019 Worst Roads Campaign recently. In a news release she said, “The street was in bad shape for the previous eight months, but once the 2018 worst roads campaign was over, the road was fixed. I have to say it’s the best it’s ever been.” During the 2019 campaign, Saskatchewan motorists, cyclists, motorcyclists and pedestrians can nominate and vote for the worst roads on which they have travelled. The news release pointed out Saskatchewan has more than 228,000 kilometres of roads, the most of any province. “That’s a lot of road to cover, which is why the campaign exists: to invite as many road users as possible to identify and vote for the roads — municipal or provincial — that are a concern to them for their safety and the safety of others,” Christine Niemczyk, CAA director of corporate communications, said in the release.

City Hall Council Notes Council motion to review remuneration passes despite pushback from councillor Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

A three-member panel will review how much Moose Jaw’s city council makes in remuneration, even though Coun. Brian Swanson is against the idea and attempted to re-open the discussion on the matter. During council’s April 22 regular meeting, Swanson requested that another vote take place on a recommendation passed at the April 8 executive meeting that would appoint a three-member panel to make recommendations on council’s remuneration and expenses. These recommendations would go into effect for members elected during the November 2020 municipal election. That recommendation passed 6-1, with Swanson opposed. During the recent regular meeting, council voted 6-1 to officially approve the motion; Swanson was again opposed. A consultant was hired five years ago to look at the issue of pay for elected officials, Swanson said. The consultant — a former city manager for Regina — developed a formula that tied municipal officials’ pay to that of a provincial cabinet minister. That formula has now been adopted by most communities in Saskatchewan.

City hall is located at the corner of Main Street and Fairford Street. Photo by Jason G. Antonio “That was to stand the test of time, to prevent elected officials from having to vote on their own pay again and again,” Swanson said. Moose Jaw’s council adopted a pay schedule during its recent budget deliberations, he continued. That policy allows for incremental pay increases each year. Swanson noted a motion such as this wouldn’t come forward if officials thought they were being paid enough; he

thinks council is already being paid sufficiently. “I see no need to start tinkering with (the formula) and increasing salaries,” he added. The provincial and federal governments have been tinkering with how they handle their own salaries for years, said Coun. Chris Warren. He was in favour of taking a comprehensive look at whether council is being paid

fairly. It’s possible none of the current council is elected during the 2020 municipal election, so the remuneration changes would benefit the future council. “It may come back that our current remuneration is acceptable and that is what they recommend,” he added. “I think this council will be appreciative of that fact.” This review of council’s pay was sparked because the federal government removed the tax exemption on one-third of all municipal councils’ remuneration, said Mayor Fraser Tolmie. Tolmie pointed out previous reports have shown he is making less than other Saskatchewan mayors. The mayors of Yorkton and Swift Current — with populations of 18,000 and 14,000 respectively — make more and are both part-time. Furthermore, the mayor of Prince Albert, a city of 34,000, is also making more; there are eight councillors for that community compared to six in Moose Jaw. “I hope this will be an independent evaluation and will not influence how we feel it should be,” said Coun. Heather Eby. “It may come back that it may look different than what we think it should look like.” The next regular council meeting is Monday, May 13.

Councillor’s motion to handle exhibition property defeated due to no support Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

Coun. Brian Swanson attempted to have the exhibition property offered in a public sale if the initial sale was not finalized by April 30, but his push was defeated since it lacked support. Swanson put forward a motion during the April 22 regular meeting that read, “That the proposed sale of Moose Jaw Exhibition Company lands along Thatcher Drive be finalized with full payment made by April 30, or the subject land be offered for public sale subject to a property plan approved by city council.” No other councillor stepped forward to second the motion, so it was defeated. Council appointments

Several councillors were appointed to committee positions during the same meeting. Coun. Chris Warren has been appointed to deputy mayor effective May 1 to June 30 and/or until a successor is appointed. Coun. Dawn Luhning has been appointed chairwoman of the executive committee effective May 1 to June 30 and/or until a successor is appointed. Coun.

City Hall Council Notes

City Council unanimously approves Moose Jaw Pride request to use amphitheatre for beer garden Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

For the second year in a row, Moose Jaw Pride will operate a beer garden in Crescent Park during its pride week festivities. Moose Jaw Pride plans to operate a beer garden in the park on Saturday, June 1 from 2 to 5 p.m. This year the event will be held at the amphitheatre; last year it was held in front the library. The venue will be fenced off and cover 79.2 square metres (880 square feet), Joe Wickenhauser, executive director of Moose Jaw Pride, told city council during its April 22 regular meeting. The maximum capacity would be 110 people, but the organization plans to limit the space’s capacity to 80 patrons. “We did do the beer garden last year. It was well received. We had no reports of incidents of intoxication … ,” he said. “Whenever (we are) planning events like this, (we) put safety first and foremost.” The organization will cover all the costs with the beer garden, including fencing, permits and alcohol. Water will be available for free and licensed food vendors will

with food, community organizations, vendors and entertainment in Crescent Park at the amphitheatre. Wickenhauser noted that Moose Jaw Pride spoke with the parks and recreation department about the location of the beer garden, with staff determining the amphitheatre would be the best location. The Saskatchewan Arts Board has given Moose Jaw Pride a grant to bring in a big name performer, although Wickenhauser did not reveal who that might be. An announcement is expected soon. “We look forward to celebrating diversity here in Moose Jaw,” added Wickenhauser. Mayor Fraser Tolmie commended the organization for doing a thorough job last year of cleaning up the park. He also noted Moose Jaw Pride has ensured all of its employees and volunteers have taken special training around the use of alcohol. City council unanimously approved Moose Jaw Pride’s request to use the amphitheatre. The next city council meeting is Monday, May 13.

Changes coming to Moose Jaw’s free landfill tipping program By Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express Reporter Changes are coming to Moose Jaw’s free landfill tipping program, as residents will have fewer days to dump their organic waste but will be allowed to use trailers to offload that refuse. The program still waives the $10 fee for residents to haul organic yard waste — leaves, grass clippings and pruned branches no bigger than one inch in diameter — to the dump. However, changes mean residents can use trailers to drop off the waste in addition to their vehicles. Commercial trailers and dual axle trailers would be excluded. Furthermore, the program will designate one Saturday and Sunday of free landfill tipping in the spring and a similar weekend in the fall. The previous program featured two weeks of free landfill tipping in the spring and the fall, with residents able to bring their yard waste using only half-ton trucks or small vehicles. During city council’s April 22 regular meeting, council voted 6-1 to adopt the new landfill tipping program practices, while it also voted 6-1 to discontinue the previous practices. Coun. Brian Swanson was opposed to both motions. City hall will announce when the dates are for the free landfill tipping program in the spring.

Only organic waste will be accepted as part of the City of Moose Jaw’s free landfill tipping program. The program will also be held for one weekend in the spring and one weekend in the fall. Photo by Jason G. Antonio Background information Under the previous program, residents brought items that were not considered household waste, such as appliances, furniture, construction material, fencing and concrete. These materials are classified as restricted waste and increased operational demands to handle, according to a report from the department of engineering services. Furthermore, customers verbally abused landfill employees and dumped their material illegally. Vehicles with trailers were

Moose Jaw Street Cleaning Moose Jaw Express Staff Street Cleaning has begun in Moose Jaw to freshen up the streets. The City will post “No Parking” signs in affected areas 72 hours prior to sweeping, with the exception of the downtown business metered area. Residents are requested to obey the “No Parking” signs, as it makes the cleaning much more efficient. Parking restrictions will be enforced, with violators fined $90.00. The following areas will be cleaned during the day over the coming weeks: 1. Roadways adjacent to high schools, Sask Polytech, 4th Avenue Thunderbird Viaduct and 9th Ave SW/NW 2. Arterial and collector streets and bus routes 3. Residential areas: a. North of Caribou St: 9th Avenue NW to 5th Avenue NE b. South Hill (including Churchill Park) c. Sunningdale d. VLA areas e.

also weighed in but did not return to be re-weighed and left without paying. During the four weeks when the municipality waived the $10 tipping fee, customers dumped 2,500 tonnes of waste at the landfill. Meanwhile, the number of vehicles has increased year over year, with 9,464 customers using the service in 2018. Council discussion “The number 1 commodity there is air space. The more free debris we take, the less air space we have. Then we have to expand the landfill,” said Coun. Chris

Warren. “I don’t want to have a situation where there is a free-for-all and anything can come … I am open to what administration is proposing to limit amount of time we accept waste at the landfill.” City hall needs to start thinking differently about how it handles garbage at the landfill, said Coun. Crystal Froese. Bringing non-yard waste garbage to the dump for free is counterproductive. Coun. Brian Swanson was also concerned about filling up the landfill without receiving revenue for doing so. He thought this would lead to “the next huge saga in Moose Jaw” about how to manage the dump. He wondered when the site would be expanded. Expanding the dump would be difficult since it is enclosed by the adjacent railway and Caribou Street, said Josh Mickleborough, director of engineering. “I feel we’re like we’re living in the ’70s in this city with this legacy dump,” said Mayor Fraser Tolmie. “I look at other cities that are much further advanced and we are still struggling with these issues.” Tolmie wanted city administration to take a gradual approach to informing the community about what is acceptable at the dump and what isn’t. The next regular city council meeting is Monday, May 13.

City Hall Council Notes

Policy would create consistency for advertising in city-owned buildings and parks There should now be more consistency with how advertising and sponsorships occur at all municipally-owned parks and buildings, after city council adopted a new policy that clarifies this area. The new policy would encourage and support advertising and sponsorship opportunities on municipally-owned and civic partner-controlled assets such as buildings, parks, the swimming pool, structures, equipment, programs and events, according to a city council report. The policy is expected to provide revenue-generating opportunities to enhance financial sustainability of the assets. It is also expected to uphold the municipality’s stewardship role to safeguard these assets and interests, while protecting the city’s image. City council voted 5-2 to accept the new policy during its April 22 regular meeting. Councillors Brian Swanson and Scott McMann were opposed. Swanson introduced an amendment to remove parks from the policy. That amendment was defeated 5-2, with Swanson and McMann in favour. The policy indicates city administration has the power to approve an agreement if it is under a certain financial threshold, Swanson pointed out. He wondered what that amount was. The city manager has the power to authorize amounts up to $150,000, while items up to $50,000 has to be reported in a quarterly report, explained Derek Blais, parks and recreation director. Anything that is controversial or

that deals with naming rights goes to city council for decision. The Yara Centre did have an employee selling advertisements at one point, said Swanson. He didn’t think it was possible to sell advertising at the same rate for all municipally-owned buildings or parks since some places have different attendance rates. “I’m not keen to see parks have advertising in them, which this bylaw allows,” he continued, pointing out residents likely don’t want to see advertising signs in Crescent Park, Elgin Park, or Happy Valley Park. “I think elected officials should retain responsibility for what kind of signage and advertising goes in our city

facilities.” This policy will create a consistent approach with selling advertising, said Mayor Fraser Tolmie. While he didn’t want to see advertising in Crescent Park either, this policy lets people approach the municipality about advertising at different events or locations. “I think there has to be a balanced approach,” he added. City administration will bring to city council a list of all areas that are possible for advertising, city manager Jim Puffalt told Coun. Crystal Froese. Administration recognizes that council needs to be involved in this. However, he didn’t think it warranted council’s attention to approve every ad sign at the Yara Centre worth $1,000 or $2,000. “If we can get $5,000 or $10,000 (in advertising agreements), that is more than we have right now,” he added. The next regular council meeting is May 13.

New city naming policy now covers buildings, bridges and other structures Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

All city-owned and civic partner-controlled buildings, parks and structures now fall under a new municipal policy that provides guidance on the naming or re-naming of such areas. The previous naming policy dealt only with parks, while this now has broader applications across the community, explained Derek Blais, director of parks and recreation. The new municipal naming policy also deals with streets and bridges, added city manager Jim Puffalt, during city council’s April 22 regular council meeting. “Sometime ago, a bridge naming policy came forward. We wanted to ensure there were consistent naming rights (for everything),” he added. Names for all municipal buildings, parks and structures will be derived from their geographic location, since it allows residents to easily identify with the location of the building, park or structure, the new policy explained. PUBLIC NOTICE RM of HILLSBOROUGH NO. 132 Public notice is hereby given that the Council of the RM of Hillsborough No. 132 intends to adopt a bylaw under The Planning and Development Act, 2007 to amend Bylaw No. 3-2016, known as the Zoning Bylaw. INTENT The proposed Zoning Bylaw amendment will allow Council to consider exempting public and municipal facilities from the frontage regulations in the Agricultural District. AFFECTED LAND The proposed amendments are general text amendments. They will affect lands and future developments in the Agricultural District. REASON The reason for the amendment is to allow for varying frontages on existing and future parcels for public and municipal services. PUBLIC INSPECTION Any person may inspect the bylaws at the RM of Hillsborough No. 132 office located in The Regional Municipal Plaza at #4-1410 Caribou St. W in Moose Jaw, SK during regular office hours. Copies of the bylaw will be made available. PUBLIC HEARING Council will hold a public hearing for the Zoning Bylaw amendment on May 8th, 2019 at 7:00pm in Board Room #2 in The Regional Municipal Plaza located at 1410 Caribou St. W in Moose Jaw, SK. The purpose of the public hearing is to hear any person or group that wants to comment on the proposed bylaw. Council will also consider written comments received at the hearing (or delivered to the undersigned at the municipal office before the hearing). Issued at the RM of Hillsborough No. 132 on May 1st, 2019 Charlene Loos, Administrator

Strategies for naming these areas will include — but not be restricted to — the street bordering the asset, the name of the subdivision, the name of a school located nearby, the name of a major recreation centre located in or adjacent to the area, or a significant landmark or area located near or in the municipal building, park or structure. The name could commemorate a historic figure or an event of cultural significance, the policy continued. A person important to the community could also be PUBLIC NOTICE RM of HILLSBOROUGH NO. 132 Notice is hereby given that, pursuant to The Stray Animals Act: Animals described as follows: Cow – Black, approximately 8 years old, white on udder, and what seems to be an “X’ brand on left thigh. Calf – Black were impounded on the 23rd day of April, 2019 at: SE 12-14-29-W2. Pursuant to section 22 of The Stray Animals Act, where the above-described animals have not been released from the pound within 14 days after impoundment, or where the owner remains unknown after reasonable inquiry by the municipality and the municipality has waited seven days after impoundment, the animals shall be delivered to a livestock auction market for sale by public auction.

commemorated, as long as that person made “an exceptional positive contribution to parks, recreation or culture relating to the city facility, park or structure being named.” Requests to re-name existing assets will be considered under three conditions: There are no historic or legacy implications with the name change. The park or building is not named after an individual. There are no existing sponsorship naming rights agreements in place. City-owned structures cannot be named after developers, real estate companies or other businesses where the name of the structure or area could be construed as being corporate advertising. However, an appropriate plaque may be erected on the site to recognize the contribution of a corporation. Individuals currently holding elected office, working for the municipality or actively serving on any city standing or selection committee cannot be considered for naming, the policy said, while a person convicted of a known felony shall not be considered either. Council voted 6-1 to approve the policy; Coun. Brian Swanson was opposed. The next regular council meeting is Monday, May 13.

City Hall Council Notes Council wants $22M in federal funding for new reservoir, pool, buses Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

A new high-service reservoir and pump house, an outdoor swimming pool and transit infrastructure are three projects worth nearly $22 million that city council is pushing to receive federal funding for. The reservoir and pump house are projected to cost $16 million; an “outdoor aquatic facility” is pegged at $3.75 million; and transit infrastructure is worth more than $2 million. During its April 22 regular meeting, city council voted unanimously to submit the projects to the federal 2019 Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program (ICIP). ICIP provides more than $896 million over 10 years for projects in Saskatchewan. The projects have to fall under one of four infrastructure categories: public transit, green, community, culture and recreation, and rural and Northern communities. City administration has to submit the projects for evaluation before the April 30 deadline. The provincial government — which oversees the ICIP funding — will evaluate them and then inform municipalities within a year if their projects have been approved. “It’s important to have projects in the queue. They stand a much better chance of getting approval, especially if they are shovel ready,” city manager Jim Puffalt told council. High-service reservoir and pump house The project would replace the pump station entirely with a new building and equipment, piping and valves. Equipment from the existing chlorine dosing plant would be relocated into a new chlorine

room at the new pump station. The building is expected to last at least 20 years, according to a council report. It would be designed to meet the needs of a population of 45,000 people. Outdoor aquatic centre The Phyllis Dewar Outdoor Pool is 53 years old and is experiencing problems that could force the municipality to close the pool. Mechanical components have reached the end of their life and major maintenance is regularly required to keep them operational. The parks and recreation department reviewed similar outdoor pool projects in Saskatchewan, Puffalt’s report said. The department received some preliminary pricing costs for a new design-build outdoor aquatic centre in Moose Jaw. Transit infrastructure The federal government notified the municipality it would receive $6,090,050 under the public transit infrastructure stream. One-third has to be spent on transit projects, while the remaining two-thirds can be transferred to green projects. City administration decided to spend $2,075,000 on: • Replacing two paratransit buses at $240,000 each • Purchasing three new conventional buses at $575,000 each • Upgrading bus shelters for $110,000 Of the remaining funds, $2,954,150 would be transferred to the cast iron water main replacement project for 2020, while $1 million would be used to install solar panels on four municipally-owned buildings

The Phyllis Dewar outdoor swimming pool could be replaced if city council can secure nearly $4 million in federal funding for a new outdoor aquatic centre. Photo courtesy City of Moose Jaw for $250,000 each. “For $250,000, we’d be able to generate $80,000 a year in electrical savings through power generation,” Puffalt said. “So it’s a pretty exciting program. We have lot of work to do to get this (fleshed) out … it moves us closer to becoming carbon neutral, which should be our goal as we move forward. “The cast iron could (also) use every dollar we can get for it.” Council discussion Coun. Brian Swanson’s preference was to take $3.95 million of the transit funding and direct it toward the cast iron water main project, since that would save money in the long-term. He pointed out council isn’t funding this program as if it were a 20-year project. Council could see major savings over the years by reducing the number of repairs

needed to water lines. Swanson introduced an amendment to eliminate the solar project and direct the funding into the cast iron program. Council voted 5-2 against that amendment, with Swanson and Coun. Scott McMann in favour. City administration and council usually face challenges with transit funding, especially with how the federal government hands out that money, said Mayor Fraser Tolmie. It normally provides transit funding to the bigger Canadian cities since they have established transit programs with many riders. “This opportunity presenting itself is a good thing,” he added. Putting $2.9 million into the cast iron program is a good thing since there are breaks that need fixing, Tolmie continued. The municipality is relining underground pipes this year versus digging up the roads and installing new PVC pipes. “But I don’t think we should miss out on the solar incentives that are presenting themselves,” he added, especially since the cost of solar panels are decreasing. More money should go to the cast iron project, said Coun. Heather Eby. However, she would have preferred if council adopted a solar panel pilot project for $250,000 and put $750,000 into the cast iron replacement. “I do think it is important for us to be forward looking,” she added. The next regular council meeting is Monday, May 13.

Hochelaga Stantec Consulting The change order is the result of extra engineering services being required to complete the detailed design and contract specification for a fluorosilicic acid system. The City of Moose Jaw commissioned Stantec to complete a preliminary design evaluation for the replacement of the existing fluoride feeding system at the Buffalo Pound water treatment plant. The new system will replace an old sodium fluorosilicate system that is at the end of its lifespan. A report from the department of engineering services indicates the system is becoming unreliable and parts are difficult to obtain. The City of Moose Jaw has paid Stantec Consulting more than $1.9 million for its work upgrading the Buffalo Pound water treatment plant infrastructure.

The Moose Jaw Pavers will be hosting a trio of races in and around the city during the annual Spring Classic this coming weekend. Around 50 racers from throughout western Canada will take part in the hill climb at Buffalo Pound on Saturday morning, criterium at 15 Wing on Saturday afternoon and road race starting at 15 Wing and winding its way back into south Moose Jaw on Sunday morning.

Learn to Mountain Bike course aims to teach kids safety, improve riding skills Event taking place weekly throughout May to June in Wakamow Valley Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The Moose Jaw Pavers cycling club are looking to make sure the next generation of mountain bike riders are doing so safely and to the best of their abilities. It’s with that in mind that they’re preparing to once again hold their Learn2MTB – or Learn to Mountain Bike – riding course for youngsters of all ages beginning May 4. “That’s something we do every year, it’s a chance to teach the kids some basic abilities, give them a chance to get out on a bike and on the trails and teach them how to do it safely,� said Pavers club president Rob Walcer. “I think it’s a great thing, too, it gives parents confidence to know that their child is out riding and they know a bit about what they’re doing and they’re safe out there.� The course – geared toward riders eight and older who are able to ride their bike -- will take place every Saturday through May and June and is conducted by Pavers member Pierre Brassard, a NCCP certified mountain bike coach. “He guides the kids and gives them some great instruction, working on the different aspects like ‘here’s what’s

with the course taking place on the trails throughout the valley proper. All riders must have a helmet and a bike in good working order. The cost of the program is $15, with $5 going back to the Wakamow Valley Authority for trail maintenance. All participants must also be members of the Moose Jaw Pavers and the Saskatchewan Cycling Association. For more information, check out https://moosejawpavers. ca/events/learn2mtb or email Pierre at

Bantam Mustangs hammer out commanding win to open regular season Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The interesting thing about the Moose Jaw Mustangs’ season-opening game in the South Saskatchewan Lacrosse League Bantam division was just how close things were through the first 14 minutes. In fact, the Mustangs found themselves only holding a 3-2 lead over the Regina Outlaws with 6:30 to play in the opening frame. But three goals in 28 turned the tide decisively, and 14 goals later, the Mustangs had their first commanding win in the books to the tune of a 20-3 victory at the Co-Operators Centre in Regina. Rowan Calvert led the assault with a 10-point effort, scoring four times and adding six assists. Liam Fitzpat-

rick was right behind with three goals and four helpers to go along with a three goal, three assist performance from Dalton Cushway. Davin Williams added a hat trick for the Mustangs, who led 7-2 after the first and 14-3 through two. Logan Hawley added a pair of goals, Lukas Salkin scored once and with three assists. Payton Kell, Colton Ebbett, Cashton Seaborg and Eric Woodley had one goal each. Walker Williams was in goal for the win and even picked up an assist. The Bantam Mustangs were back in action this past Monday when they hosted the Weyburn Thrashers.

Mustangs open Midget lacrosse league season with win Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

The Moose Jaw Mustangs had a bit of a slow start in their South Saskatchewan Lacrosse League Midget division opener, but like their Bantam counterparts two nights earlier, it didn’t really matter in the end.

That’s because after finding themselves tied 1-1 after the first period, the Mustangs scored four goals in the second and added three more in the third on their way to an 8-4 victory over the Regina Attack in Regina.

Caelan Fitzpatrick scored twice and added three assists for Moose Jaw while Atley Calvert picked up a pair of markers. Brydon Bell added a goal and two assists, with single markers going to Kael Nichols, Ethan Johnson and Jacob Gyman.

Mac Simpson was in goal for the win. The Mustangs now have a couple of weeks off before their next SSLL game, as they travel to Weyburn to face the Thrashers on Wednesday, May 8.

Team Canada loses in bronze medal game at World Under-18 championship Moose Jaw Warriors Tracey, Hunt see disappointing end with Canada at event Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

After such a promising start, Team Canada ended up coming home empty handed from the 2018 World Under-18 Hockey Championship. Canada – which included Moose Jaw Warriors forward Brayden Tracey and defenceman Daemon Hunt, along with general manager Alan Millar as part of the management group – gave up three goals in the second pe-

riod on their way to dropping a 5-2 decision to Team U.S.A. in the bronze medal game at the tournament in Ornskoldsvik, Sweden. That loss came on the heels of Canada posting a perfect 4-0 record in the round robin before defeating Latvia 3-1 in the quarter-final. A 4-3 loss to Sweden in the semifinal sent Canada into the bronze medal game. In that contest things started off innocently enough as Canada’s Dylan Cozens (Lethbridge Hurricanes) and the U.S.’s Alex Turcotte exchanged goals in the first period to send the two teams into the break tied 1-1. The second period was all bad news for Canada, though, as Jack Hughes, Bobby Brink and Cam York all scored unanswered goals as the U.S. built a 4-1 lead heading into the final frame. York made it 5-1 4:26 into the third; Nathan Legare (Baie-Comoeau, QMJHL) got one back for Canada but that would be as close as they’d get. Neither Tracey nor Hunt figured in the scoring, with Tracey recording three shots on net and both players finishing even in plus-minus. Tracey ended up having an outstanding tournament overall, as the WHL Eastern Conference nominee for rookie of the year scored four goals and seven points while going plus-four to finish fifth in team scoring.

Hunt picked up an assist and was plus-five for the event. Peyton Krebs of the Kootenay Ice led Team Canada in scoring with six goals and 10 points in seven games. Sweden ended up sending their hometown fans home happy by defeating Russia 4-3 in overtime to win the gold medal.

Miller Express veterans returning for new season

Gallagher, Barclay, Lightly among players from 2018 Miller Express set to return to Ross Wells Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

For most teams that play summer sports, putting together a roster is usually something that happens in the late spring as practices start up and leagues kick into action. For the Moose Jaw Miller Express and other teams in the Western Canadian Baseball League, it’s a touch earlier like before Christmas, if not earlier. Such is the way things have to be when you have college and university players looking to find a place to play in the summer, with their winter teams often playing a role in how things shake out. “Our roster has been together for quite awhile, we’re to the point that rosters have to be finalized sometime in November because schools are looking to place players for the summer sooner rather than later,” said Miller Express general manager Cory Olafson. “You’re going to have kids who get hurt or have to go to summer school or something like that and you’ll have a few spots to fill, but it’s mostly done by Christmas.” That means things are already pretty much set for the local squad this summer at Ross Wells Park, and there will be a few familiar faces in the mix right off the bat. Leading the way is Fredericton’s Blake Gallagher, who is currently playing with Colby Community College in the Kansas Jayhawk Community College Conference after a stellar season on the mound, in the field and at the plate with the Express. “Overall he was probably one of our most valuable guys last year, Olafson said. “Him and Logan Hoffman were our two power arms off the hill, plus he was our fairly regular second baseman and our most consistent hitter. So having him coming back is awesome.” Gallagher hit .296 through the regular season, finishing second among players with more than 100 at bats. He added two home runs and 14 runs batted in while drawing 16 walks. On the mound, Gallagher pitched 15 innings of relief,

striking out 20 to go along with a 4.80 earned run average. Joining Gallagher from the rubber will be Nick Falco, currently a freshman with Fresno City Community College in the California Community College Athletic Association. Falco saw action in 18 games and pitched

35.2 innings with a 4.29 ERA, 39 strikeouts and 20 walks last season. He’ll have a familiar batterymate behind the plate in Ty Barclay, the Wyoming, Ont. product currently in his junior season with Division II Emporia State University in Emporia, Kansas. Barclay hit .211 last season with 16 RBI and 19 walks while playing 32 games behind the plate. Returning at shortstop will be Ty Lightley, who like Barclay played for Garden City Community College last season but moved on to Division II baseball for 2019, suiting up this spring with the Metropolitan State University of Denver Roadrunners. Lightley hit .202 for Moose Jaw last season, with two doubles and eight RBI in 29 games. He recorded a .938 fielding percentage at short. More veterans will be announced as opening day grows nearer, with Olafson confident in the team’s returning experience. “Most of the guys who we’ve asked to come back are coming back; there’s a pitcher or two where their coaches are putting them on ice for the summer, but we have a handful of guys, a good core of guys who contributed to the team last year,” he said. “We know what we’re going to get out of those guys and we look forward to having them here again this summer.” The Express kick off their regular season a little over a month from now, with their season opener at home against Melville on May 29. Season ticket are currently on sale, with holders receiving 28 tickets to be used at any. Packages cost $195 or $275 for club seating with a limited amount available. To purchase tickets contact Cory Olafson at 306-6318893 or Darryl Pisio at 306-630-8108 or contact the team at

Immigrants learn the long-standing custom of colouring Easter eggs By Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express Reporter

Painting eggs at Easter is a tradition for many Canadians, but not all immigrants may be familiar with the Ukrainian custom. The Newcomer Welcome Centre and the Moose Jaw Multicultural Council (MJMC) attempted to change that, however, by hosting an Easter egg colouring evening on April 25. Plastic eggs were used to ensure there was no mess to clean up if they broke. This activity was part of the Newcomer Welcome Centre’s friendship program, which is held on the last Thursday of every month. Since starting last year, the program has hosted hikes, scavenger hunts, paint nights, pumpkin carving and video games evenings. “We’ve noticed that newcomers sometimes find it hard to make connections and friendships with established Canadians in the community,� explained Tyler Bastedo, community connections co-ordinator with the MJMC. It can be intimidating for some immigrants to meet new people, especially if their English is poor or they aren’t confident in their skills, he continued. This is why the centre designed the friendship program to be welcoming so newcomers could meet new people, attempt new things and learn English. The number of participants varies from month to month, with some evenings seeing five immigrants attend and other nights seeing 30 people participate. Bastedo pointed out it all depends upon what is happening that evening or even how the weather is. Goitom Goitom and his brother Mussie were the youngest of the 20 participants colouring Easter egg. Still in elementary school, the Sudanese siblings have been in Canada for six years.

“It’s an art.� Sharma believes volunteering is important. This is why she has helped the MJMC since it formed in 1974. She has used her experiences in Moose Jaw to help new immigrants understand how life works here. “In our culture, for volunteering, you earn your destiny. For the exchange of money, you earn your living,� she added. “So everybody should do volunteer work.�

Sudanese brothers Goitom and Mussie Goitom attend their first activity at the Newcomer Welcome Centre and learn how to colour Easter eggs, on April 25. Photo by Jason G. Antonio The older Goitom said the family finds Moose Jaw to be a “really nice place.� This was the brothers’ first time attending an activity at the centre. “My mom forced us to (come) because we were at home all day watching TV and playing video games,� Goitom said, as he coloured his egg red. However, he thought it was a fun experience. Columbian-born newcomer John Alvarez immigrated to Moose Jaw one year ago. He originally didn’t know anyone, since all he did was go from work to home to work to home. However, he now knows more people since he has attended several activities at the centre. This was Alvarez’s first time painting an Easter egg. “It’s easy. I excited,� he said. India-born Usha Sharma has lived in Moose Jaw for more than 49 years. She left India in 1966 at age 24 and moved to England, before coming to Canada in

1969. Three of her four children were born in The Friendly City. Sharma, 77, was familiar with colouring Easter eggs, since she had done it with her children when they were younger. She joked that she was colouring eggs at the centre since “when in Rome, do as the Romans do.� “I know this Ukrainian tradition. I’ve been in their houses and seen it,� she chuckled.

The Last Five Years an impressive achievement for Moose Jaw Community Players Randy Palmer - Moose Jaw Express

As actors with the Moose Jaw Community Players worked their way through a rehearsal of ‘The Last Five Years’ a little over a month and a half ago, it was easy to see the potential of their performance. This past Friday and Saturday night at the Mae Wilson Theatre, there was no doubt the entire production had lived up to that potential. Led by Keyanna Burgher and John-Mark Smith in the lead roles of Cathy Hiatt and Jamie Wellerstein and directed by Debbie Burgher, the show featured a stunning array of musical and physical performances from all involved, offering an impressive night of entertainment for the nearly 200 patrons who took in the shows over the two nights. “I’m very proud of them; they did a fantastic job. They were absolutely great,” Debbie Burgher said shortly after the show closed out with the emotional beginning and end of Cathy and Jamie’s relationship in ‘Goodbye Until Tomorrow / I Could

Keyanna Burgher opens the Moose Jaw Community Players performance of the Last Five Years with ‘Still Hurting’, the end of Cathy Hiatt’s relationship with Jamie Wellerstein.

Cast and crew salute the crowd at the end of the Saturday night performance of The Last Five Years. Never Rescue You’. The play – written and composed by Jason Robert Brown and presented by title sponsors Prairie Bee Meadery – features a unique narrative structure where the story is told from the perspective of Cathy from the end of her marriage while also following the tale from Jamie’s perspective and when they first met. The two narratives work backward and forward, respectively, meeting in the middle at their marriage and progressing until Cathy first meets Jamie and Jamie walks out on the marriage. Convoluted? Of course. And that’s what makes it such an interesting tale, and one of the most popular Off-Broadway performances ever created. “This is Keyanna’s absolutely favourite musical; she’s always wanted to do this and she came home to take some classes at the University of Regina, so I said if this is something you want to do we’ll do it,” Burgher explained. “Then we had the support of the Moose Jaw Community Players and Lianne King agreed to help with the

production end of it. We found some great sponsors in Moose Jaw, especially Prairie Bee Meadery as our premium sponsor. “Then you add in the beautiful facility we’re in and the lighting Lawrence Bird created and the beautiful sound Eric La France gave us… for sure it was everything we hoped.” Enough can’t be said about the performances of Keyanna Burgher and JohnMark Smith. The duo had an unenviable task of appearing in every scene, alternating songs throughout with the exception of ‘The Next 10 Minutes’ and ‘‘Goodbye Until Tomorrow / I Could Never Rescue You’ as the only true duets. Throw in the physical acting needed in the role, multiple rapid-fire costume changes and the quality of musical performances the duo put forth, and it’s easy to see why the show earned a standing ovation at the end of both nights. “A lot of dominoes had to come together, you take the plunge into the deep end and you hope that it’s going to turn out, and we’re really happy that it turned out so well,” Debbie Burgher said. Burgher also made special mention of the performance of the musicians – Joya Johnston on piano, Roman Churko on guitar, Anne Riches Williams on violin and Jim Mitchell on bass – who rolled through the heavy musical numbers without a hitch. “They were amazing, and it’s all volunteer. Everyone spent a million hours at home practicing and making sure it’s great. It really came together,” she said. One of the secret stars of the show was the set design, which at first glance was merely a set of pallets slammed together to create the semblance of a stage set. Nope, a lot more to it than that. “It was designed by Lawrence and Keyanna and Joan Stumborg built it… you think it’s just pallets and it’s no biggie, but it took a lot of work to figure it out,” Burgher explained. “It’s all painted as well so it looks like it goes from nice and pristine

And they aren’t finished just yet: the play will be performed this coming Wednesday, May 1 during TheatreFest Saskatchewan at the Regina Performing Arts Centre. “So we’re packing this all into a truck tonight, taking it there next Wednesday, rebuilding it and putting it on again,” Burgher said with laugh. “So if you missed it, here’s a chance to see it!” Doors open at the Performing Arts Centre at 7 p.m., with showtime at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $20 and are available at http://

Moose Jaw police recover dozens of firearms during gun amnesty program By Jason G. Antonio - Moose Jaw Express

The Moose Jaw Police Service (MJPS) has taken in more than 24 firearms as part of a province-wide gun amnesty designed to ensure these weapons don’t fall into criminals’ hands. The gun amnesty began on March 25 and ended April 19. The second annual Saskatchewan Association of Chiefs of Police Gun Amnesty allows residents to turn in their unwanted firearms, replica firearms and ammunition to police or conservation officers. Last year’s amnesty saw 369 firearms turned in, including 275 rifles and shotguns, 42 handguns and 18 prohibited firearms. A news release is expected to be released next week with the number of firearms collected this year. The program in Moose Jaw is going well and residents have responded positively to it, said Sgt. Kevin Pilsworth, MJPS media relations officer. The police service collected a wide range of firearms, including rifles, shotguns and handguns, plus ammunition. “We are happy (and thrilled) people took advantage of the amnesty program,” he said. “It’s an excellent opportunity for people to have us attend right to their residence. That way, we can do pickup in a safe manner.” A report in the Saskatoon StarPhoenix indicated Moose Jaw police had taken in at least 24 firearms. Pilsworth was unable to confirm to the Moose Jaw Express how many it had collected. “The numbers are not a priority for us. It’s getting the guns in and getting them safely taken care of,” he said. “We kind of crunch our numbers down the road. It might be a month before we know how many we took in.”

Moose Jaw police does not want residents transporting their firearms or ammunition to the police station in an unsafe and unlawful manner, Pilsworth stressed. Residents should simply call the station at 306-694-7600 and let the organization know they want to turn in a firearm. Police will then come pick it up. Having a firearm in the home can overwhelm some people since they might not know how to dispose of it, said Pilsworth. Sometimes people inherit a firearm, receive one from a family member, or have had a firearm for decades but want to get rid of it. The police service has taken in antique firearms over the years. Sometimes residents have turned in a firearm that a grandfather or great-grandfather used during a World War. Other times, people have turned over a handgun that is relatively new and prohibited. So what happens to the firearms Moose Jaw police collect? Pilsworth explained that the organization acts in an unbiased manner when disposing of them. It doesn’t matter if firearms are 100 years old or brand new: they are destroyed. “We have a very strict protocol around that,” he said. “When people turn in their firearms, they can rest safely knowing that those firearms are never going to end up in the hands of someone who shouldn’t have them.” If residents have a firearm and believe they can transfer it safely to someone else to own, that is also acceptable. Most of the time when criminals commit crimes with firearms, those firearms are unregistered weapons, said Pilsworth. Surrendering your firearm to police ensures community safety.

Several handguns and various types of ammunition were collected by the Moose Jaw Police Service as part of the second annual Saskatchewan Association of Chiefs of Police Gun Amnesty program. Photo courtesy Sgt. Kevin Pilsworth When asked if guns are a problem in Moose Jaw, Pilsworth replied that firearms are always a problem in the wrong hands. However, there has been an increase in the use of guns during crimes here in the last couple of years. “It might just be a ripple, but over the past few years we’ve had more serious calls involving firearms than we have in the past,” he added. “It’s definitely something we’re keeping a close eye on … That’s why these types of programs are important.”

Construction of new pool at Buffalo Pound Provincial Park to begin this summer The swimming pool at Buffalo Pound Provincial Park won’t be available to visitors until next summer, after the provincial government tore out the pool to make way for a new complex. The province provided funding for the construction of a new pool in the 20192020 budget, according to a news release. Demolition of the former pool was finished at the end of March. The final drawings will be complete by May and the tendered construction contract is expected to be in place by mid-June. Construction is planned to begin in July or August and will continue through the fall and early winter. The new pool will be commissioned next spring. A waterpark is not in the plans for Buffalo Pound Provincial Park, according to a parks ministry spokeswoman. Rowan’s Ravine Provincial Park just announced plans for a privately owned on-water water park, but there are no similar plans at Buffalo Pound. “The Government of Saskatchewan recognizes that the swimming pool at Buffalo Pound Provincial Park is a key attraction for visitors,” said Gene Makowsky, minister of Parks, Culture and Sport. “We

Afternoon drive on holiday puts us on the road again By Ron Walter - For Moose Jaw Express

It was the nicest day so far of spring, and a holiday at that. The road beckoned my partner/wife and I for a long drive. Packing some food and water to deal with uncertainties of southern Saskatchewan businesses on a holiday, we headed down Highways 39 and 339 towards Briercrest. Usually, I commented, a herd of antelope hangs out along 339 but I saw none. Then a buck and his harem of five does appeared, resting by the road side. We spotted a huge old two-storey farm house in the distance and wondered what the story was, how many kids the family had. Now the old stucco place is vacant and falling down. My partner started chatting about plans for our 50th wedding anniversary this fall. I’d rather she handle it all but she insists on my input. The guest list probably will be a lot smaller than our 25th. So many friends and family have gone to the other side with the

wonder if this is Crown land sold by the government to these farmers. A cool looking draft horse with paint horse markings is the only thing moving near Crane Valley on this day. Ron Walter can be reached at ronjoy@


Flags fly in breeze Grim Reaper. We head to Weyburn via Avonlea, recalling the terrible heat the day of Avonlea’s Heritage Day last year. In Weyburn we find lunch at the Main Track and head west on Highway 13 towards Assiniboia. The number of farms along the highway with for sale signs, some side by side, surprises us.

At Ogema my partner photographs the flapping flags. It’s mid-afternoon. My partner is into her 3 p.m. travelling mood. We head up Highway 38 past the Rose Valley Colony in search of bird photos. I see a faraway goose or duck in the middle of a water body. We stop. I get out, focus the big lens on the bird, only to find it is a tuft of grass in the water. My partner laughs and comments on my need for new eye glasses. Three farmers south of Crane Valley are breaking up large tracts of Prairie sod. We

Annual Quilt Show attracting far-flung crowd Larissa Kurz

The annual Quilt Show, hosted by the Prairie Hearts Quilters’ Guild, is shaping up to be another successful showcase of talented quilters. To be held at the Exhibition Grounds on May 3 & 4, the show has entries from all over in their judged quilt show and expects somewhere around 1,000 to 1,500 visitors again this year. With a building full of quilt work on display, vendors, and even a live demo, the weekend show is a great opportunity to experience what the guild gets to do every day. “Our theme this year is ‘everything old is new again.’ So you’re going to see some older quilts and you’re going to see things that people have tried to use an older theme and make it into a new quilt,” said guild president Colleen Lawrence. The show takes entries from anyone, not just guild members, and Lawrence says often they have people from outside Moose Jaw send them their work to enter; there’s no shortage of things to see at the show. “We have a group of about 14 ladies. . . they are doing a demo all weekend long of hand quilting in one of the buildings and they will have a lot of their hand-quilted quilts on display in that building,” said Lawrence. “In the other building, there are 175-ish entries into the quilt show.” It’s not just quilts that come from outside of Moose Jaw to attend the show; Lawrence expects a busload of quilters from Saskatoon and even Calgary, as well as a number of friends from other parts of the province. “I went to Weyburn a few weeks ago and they had what we call a gathering of the guilds,” said Lawrence. “So we kind of talked up our quilt show there and so a lot of those people are coming, from an hour and a half away type of thing, to come to the quilt show.” The guild has put together a raffle quilt, with proceeds

going towards the Women’s Health Unit at the hospital — only one of the ways the Prairie Hearts Quilters’ Guild gives back to their community. Members of the guild pitch in for a number charity projects for those in need; making quilts for victims of tragedy, sending homemade pillowcases to the children’s ward at the hospital, and making placemats for patients in the hospital and for home care residents. “Any kind of tragedy, we try to make sure that the people at least have a quilt to wrap themselves in,” said Lawrence. Lawrence encourages everyone to stop by at the quilt show to support the guild, but also to experience the beauty of quilting. “People are so surprised when they come and see the quilts,” said Lawrence. “It’s just not like your grandmother’s quilting from 100 years ago. It’s totally different and anybody can do it. I don’t care what anybody says, they can do it if they try.” The show begins on May 3, from 9am to 7pm, and continues on May 4, from 9am to 4pm, at the Moose Jaw Exhibition Grounds. Admission is $10 at the door.

Both of our sweet peas enjoyed bedtime stories. Many evenings we’d read a stack of books together, sitting on the couch or bed, and other times when bedtime got pushed later, I would limit it to one favorite, going through the motions and hoping they’d hit slumberland sooner than later. Some of their favorites were “Butterfly Kisses”, any Hello Kitty book or “The Treasure Tree.” There always seemed to be a book they would like that I didn’t have the patience for... and most times, they’d want to include it in the pile. One of those books was a peek-a-boo book with flaps that opened up called “Bug Mania.” It had all kinds of pictures of worms and spiders and other odd bugs of course, it showed the places where they lived like trash bins, garbage dumps and picnic baskets. Thankfully, one of Lil Sweet Pea’s favorites was “Ferdinand.” How could anyone not enjoy the story of Ferdinand, the bull who preferred smelling the flowers over fighting in the ring? Good books are treasures. Good books hold a wealth of knowledge. Good books are capsules of wisdom and experience. Books hold the stories of people’s lives; their encounters, their pain, their struggles, their victories, their sense and their reality. Each of us has a story. Did you know that your story needs to be shared somehow, some way? I think we can tend to withdraw from sharing our experiences due to: the speed that life is going... the lack of respect we may encounter or think we may encounter when we start sharing... the fear of exposing ourselves... and maybe even the lack of an audience. Can I encourage you that your voice and story may just be what the next person needs to hear? I have made it my aim to be as authentic as possible through my writing. Some of you can relate to my stories... because I’m sharing my real life struggles, joys, pain and reality. There is nothing more relatable than being authentic. Someone somewhere is going through what you’ve gone through. Your story may be just what they need to hear to keep going, keep pressing, keep living. There are many ways to write your story: blogging, journaling – whether typed or hand-written, social media, vlogging, singing or writing a book. It can be as little as keeping a gratitude notebook, a scrapbook with pictures or notes in the columns of your Bible or devotional book. It can also be recorded audibly. Just take a few minutes each day to pen/speak your thoughts; what you are learning, processing, dealing with and how you are taking steps forward. Matthew 13:52 says, “Therefore every scribe instructed concerning the kingdom of heaven is like a householder who brings out of his treasure things new and old.” Matthew is showing us that we need to have insight from the past; important lessons and experiences that we can draw from as well as new treasures to be revealed by Holy Spirit that can be brought forth in a timely manner to bring new insight and revelation for the days ahead. If you were to sum up your life’s story, what would you say? If your story isn’t going in the direction you had expected, maybe there’s a way you can redirect the path you’ve taken. Each of you has a story, a destiny to fulfill. You are unique. Your story matters. Your voice needs to be heard. “(Your) tongue is the pen of a ready writer.” Psalm 45:1

Calvin Douglas Barry Calvin Douglas Barry, aged 91 years of Moose Jaw, SK passed away peacefully on Thursday, January 17th, 2019. Calvin was born in Tuxford, SK on July 15th, 1927. He was a successful entrepreneur in the farming industry, and a man who never took no for an answer. He lied about his age to enlist in World War II but luckily for his wife, he did not go to the front lines. Calvin married Audrey Allison in October 1949. To diversify, he crop dusted and flew a little yellow plane over the Saskatchewan fields, and raised thousands of turkeys. He never complained, not ever. His favourite pastimes were hunting, fishing, and spending time in Arizona. Before solving a problem, his grandkids would say WWCBD “what would Cal Barry do?�. The man was a legend. May we all take a note from Cal’s book. Ask for what you want, don’t take crumbs, and appreciate life. Cal had a special bond with his sons-in-law and the joke was they were the sons Audrey could not give him. Calvin is survived by his wife, Audrey; daughters, Deb (Calvin) and Patti (Len) and their families – 4 grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren; brother Wray; sister-in-law, Helen; as well as many nieces and nephews, cousins and friends. Please join us for Cal’s Farewell Party on Saturday, May 11th, 2019 at 12:00 p.m. in the Moose Jaw Wildlife Centre, 1396 3rd Ave NE, Moose Jaw, SK. Lunch will be provided and everyone is welcome to bring and share stories of Cal.

Half of Canadians say elected officials should serve two terms only, poll shows By Moose Jaw Express Staff

A slim majority of Canadians believe elected officials should be subject to term limits, with two four-year terms the most preferred option for all offices, according to the Angus Reid Institute. A new public opinion poll from the non-profit organization suggests more than half (54 per cent) of Canadians say term limits for elected politicians are necessary. Nearly half of all respondents say people who are sworn in as prime ministers or provincial premiers should serve no longer than eight total years in those roles. Of the 1,600 Canadians polled, the Angus Reid Institute found 54 per cent thought term limits for elected politicians are necessary; 29 per cent say such limits are unnecessary; and 17 per cent were unsure. Some Canadian officials — including the late former Alberta premier, Jim Prentice, and current British Columbia Green Party leader, Andrew Weaver — have also argued for the introduction of term limits in Canada. Such term limits exist in the United States. U.S. President Donald Trump will run for re-election next year, but he is ineligible to run again in 2024. Legislation to limit more than two terms was introduced after the death of four-term president Franklin Delano Roosevelt in 1945. While opinions are mixed on whether Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will be re-elected during this October’s federal election, there is nothing preventing him from seeking a hypothetical third mandate, or fourth or fifth, as Liberal Party leader and Member of Parliament, Angus Reid said. Other important findings from the poll show: Canadians’ beliefs that term limits are necessary cut across several demographic lines. It outpaces the belief that they are unnecessary across all groups, including by region, sex and age Political partisanship does seem to affect perspectives, however, with those who would consider voting for the Conservative Party of Canada most likely to say term limits are necessary (63 per cent), compared to voters leaning toward the Liberal Party who say such limits are unnecessary (46 per cent), versus 39 per cent of Liberal voters who say term limits are necessary If Canada ever adopted term limits, the public wouldn’t necessarily want them to be permanent, the poll shows. More than half (54 per cent) say a politician who has reached his or her term limit should be able to run again for the same term-limited position after taking some time off More information about the poll can be found at www.
