NESD reacts to school division reform report Devan C. Tasa

The North East School Division will get a chance to give input towards the provincial government’s plan to reform school divisions. The Perrins report, released Dec. 21, gives four broad options: create a single province-wide public school division, establish four large public school divisions, create between eight and 14 public school divisions, or realign the boundaries of the current 19 public school divisions with attention given to examining the two school divisions that have fewer than five schools, the school divisions around Saskatoon and the traffic patterns around communities. Not included in the options for reform are the province’s nine religious divisions and one francophone division. Don Rempel, the North East School Division’s director of education, said Jan. 3 the board had no official opinion of the options yet. “The board hasn’t had a chance to meet,” he said. “We’re happy to see what’s being considered.” A panel of six will be handling consultations of the report. They include Ray Morrison, the Saskatoon Public Schools’ chair; Duane Favel, the Ile à la Crosse Board of Education’s chair; Janet Foord, a former Southeast Cornerstone member; Ben Grebinski, Prairie Valley School Division’s director of education; Doug Moen, the former deputy minister to the Premier; and Leanne White with the Saskatchewan Teachers’ Federation. That panel will meet with school divisions and other stakeholders for two hours each over the course of January. Rempel said the division will

participate and give its feedback. “We’ve submitted some preferred dates,” he said. “We haven’t heard back from the government yet.” The public can also send written submissions to K12govconsultations@ before Jan. 23. The panel is to report to the education ministry in February.

Shift in governance

The report also recommended a shift in school board governance in five key areas. Strategic direction and accountability: the report recommended examining the number of board members, standardizing the responsibilities of the board members and clarifying the role of the minister of education. Effectiveness: the recommendation was to strengthen emphasis on education outcomes and consider creating an Education Quality Council to monitor performance. Efficiency: reduce costs by centralizing tasks like IT, human resources and purchasing. Consistency/Standardization: consider standardizing the pay of trustees and administration that are not covered through a union contract across the province. Participation: reinforce the role of school community councils and enable First Nations representation on board of education. “I think those five areas for shifts in governance could be addressed with or without changes to the school division boundaries,” Rempel said.

Stakeholders want no more mergers

While there was no official consultation while Dan Perrins was creating his report, 32 stakeholders did approach him for a conversation on an ad hoc basis. On a letter of transmittal on the front page of the report, Perrins said all of them supported elected boards, asked for no more amalgamation of school divisions and supported the province-wide education sector strategic plan that places goals on the divisions like improving reading levels and improving First Nations graduation rates. “We didn’t respond to Perrins prior to the report coming out – and we weren’t made aware that we could, really,” Rempel said. “I could share with you that I think our school division would Tisdale Wildlife Room agree with the points Tisdale RECplex raised in that letter of transmittal.”

Kelsey Trail, 11 other health regions to be merged Devan C. Tasa

The Kelsey Trail Health Region, which covers the Northeast, will be merged along with the 11 other health regions in the province into a single, province-wide health authority. Greg Ottenbreit, the minister responsible for rural and remote health, told the Review the move to one health region isn’t necessarily about saving money, but improving services by breaking down boundaries seen in the current system. “It isn’t about pulling back any kind of services,” he said. “This is about enhancing services, making sure it’s more responsive to the people of the province, that they can access the type of healthcare that they want.” The reorganization, the minister said, could actually improve services in rural areas. It could do so by minimizing the cost of administration and redirecting the savings to front-line health workers. Emergency Medical Services could also improve as instead of 12 different regions co-ordinating their ambulances in different ways, there would be one, making the system more cohesive. The government is concerned about preserving rural voice, said Ottenbreit, and it will do so by including community groups that can have some input as well as four different service delivery areas based on patient travel patterns. Ottenbreit said the province doesn’t know at this point what those areas will look like. “We don’t have any preconceived notions at this point. We have to get our transition team in place to start working through that process.”

Loss of KTHR headquarters in Tisdale

The Kelsey Trail Health Region is headquartered in Tisdale. Shane Merriman, Kelsey Trail’s CEO, said the health region found out about the results of a panel appointed to examine health regions and their recommendations, accepted in whole by the provincial government, at the same time as the public did, Jan. 4. He said he doesn’t know what will happen with the health region’s headquarters or the people that are employed in it. “We don’t know that level of detail yet, in terms of

headquarters here for the Kelsey Trail Health Region regional office,” he said. “Those things have yet to be worked out.” Ottenbreit said that it’s too early to tell what will happen with the administration and governance structure of health in the province except there will be one health region with one board of directors and one set of administrators. “When it comes to the local level, there will definitely be some administrative changes locally but you still need managers and service providers in the local areas,” he said. The minister said there will be job losses because of the change, but most of them will be administrative and back office jobs that can be amalgamated. With that said, he said he did understand there were concerns about losing those types of jobs in Tisdale. “We’re very sensitive to that. I know [Health] Minister [Jim] Reiter’s very sensitive to that as well – both of us are from rural areas. But realizing if we are going to change the system, there are going to be some impacts.”

Mayors react

Al Jellicoe, the mayor of Tisdale, said he was concerned about possible job losses as a result of the consolidation. He said his town will lobby the provincial government to minimize job losses. “We’re going to try to set up a meeting with the ministers in Regina, but that’s probably four to six weeks away,” he said. Rick Lang, the mayor of Melfort, was more positive. “I’m not sure if we have any concerns yet,” he said. “We’ll have to keep our ears open and see what’s being proposed.” Lang said even if the administration is being consolidated, the fact remains that Saskatchewan is a large province with a spread-out population, meaning that services will have to stay local and places like his city would be a major health centre. The mayor of Melfort said he still expects the province to fulfill its promise of locating a CT scanner at the Melfort hospital and for the new Wellness Centre to be built. “That doesn’t change the promises that have been

Mustangs continue strong play Christopher Lee

The Melfort Mustangs’ offense continued their strong play as they whipped the Yorkton Terriers 8-3 in their lone game of the week. The Mustangs finished the Jan. 4 home game 3/6 on the power play, which included a pair of first period power play goals as the Mustangs piled up four goals in the period. Lucas Fraulin got the party started early for the Mustangs scoring just 5:27 into the first period. Tanner Zentner and Reed Gunville scored goals just 1:36 apart on the power play and Matt Hermary added another as the Mustangs jumped out to a 4-0 lead just 12:42 into the opening period. The Terriers added a late goal with seven seconds remaining to send the teams into the dressing room with the Mustangs holding a commanding 4-1 lead, thanks in large part to a 19-7 edge in shots on goal. Jumping out to a fast start was really important, said Trevor Blevins, the Mustangs’ head coach, especially with the Terriers coming in having a game the night before, while the Mustangs were at home. “I thought we had a good jump on them 5-on-5 and had lots of strong play to start the hockey game.” The teams traded goals in the second as Hermary extended the Mustangs’ lead back to four before Dexter Robinson

responded for the Terriers with 1:15 to go in the period The Terriers dominated the shot count 15-6. At this point, Blevins said they took the pedal off the metal just a bit. “I thought away from the puck we were a little sloppy and I didn’t think we competed as hard as we needed to,” said Blevins. The Mustangs put the game away in the third period as they outscored the Terriers 3-1 in the period with Justin Ball, Gunville and Andrew Thompson all finding the back of the net. Derrick Hucul turned aside 32 shots in the Mustangs’ goal in the win. After a sloppy second period Blevins was really pleased to see the team regroup in the intermission getting back to playing

how they are capable of. “Guys bought in, got it done and full credit to the team in the room. It was a decent effort to finish it off for sure.” Blevins was pleased with the effort of the power plays, noting they did a great job of putting pucks on goal with plenty of traffic in front of the net. “We moved it around with more intention,” said Blevins, “and we were assertive and really had some strong net front and some outside shots found the back of the net.” Blevins said it was really a combination of effort and putting the pucks in the high traffic areas that helped with the hometown win. The Mustangs’ power play has been particularly good this season at home

as they boast the second best power play percentage converting at a clip of 24.2 per cent, trailing only the Kindersley Klippers. After a quiet week for the Mustangs they return to action next week with a pair of contests as they take on the Nipawin Hawks at the Northern Lights Palace on Jan. 11 before heading up north for a matchup with the La Ronge Ice Wolves on Jan. 14.

made, it doesn’t change the importance of the Melfort hospital to the area, it’s doesn’t change the idea we’re working towards building the clinic. As far as we’re concerned, that’s all going to happen.” Barry Elliott, Nipawin’s administrator, said his town’s council and culture and health standing committee hadn’t met, so it was premature to comment at this point.

Transition could be finished by fall

There’s no hard timeline for when the health regions will be merged, though the province is anticipating it will be done by the fall. Ottenbreit said the province wasn’t going to rush the process, avoiding problems seen when Alberta transitioned into a system with one provincewide health authority. “We’re going to make sure it’s well thought out and go through the process efficiently, effectively, with the least impact to not only our current administration employees but – for sure – the least amount of impact – we’re hoping unnoticeable impact – to the citizens of the province that need the healthcare services.” As for Merriman, he said he was unsure of how his role will play out during the transition. “I’ll certainly support the Ministry of Health and work together to ensure a smooth transition for the patients and employees that we serve,” he said. “I’ll be serving in my role as the CEO of the health region until such time as further decisions are made with regards to the movement to the one provincial health authority.” For Merriman, there was one important bottom line. “At the end of the day, we’re here to provide healthcare services and we want to provide high quality patient care to those that we serve and we will continue to do that.”

Have a say about school division reform


hile the fate of the province’s health regions have been decided, it’s still not too late for the public to have a say when it comes to Saskatchewan’s school divisions. The province is asking citizens to send written Devan C. Tasa submissions to Editoral Comment before Jan. 23. All submitters have to identify themselves. All of the submissions will be posted online after the deadline. All four options for reform will affect the province’s school divisions in some form, so if you have an option, let the government know. Here’s mine: Dear Education Governance Advisory Panel, I represent one of two media outlets that consistently covers the North East School Division. There is a real possibility that whatever reforms you recommend would move the governing body of our local school division away from Melfort and to a place that would be difficult for a reporter based out of Tisdale to attend school division board meetings. I ask that you add recommendations to the report that will allow local newspapers to continue to cover the public portions of the board meetings and ask questions to the board chair, the director of education and any other pertinent official as soon as the meeting is complete. Such recommendations might include requiring divisions to broadcast their public meetings online and making a conference call after the meeting available to local media. I feel that school divisions can do their best work if the public they serve is informed about their actions through their local media outlets. Thank you for considering my request and for the work you are doing to consult with stakeholders and the public. Sincerely, Devan C. Tasa Editor, Tisdale Recorder and Parkland Review

Low dollar could boost Canadian agriculture


Views on Agriculture

anadian agriculture producers have long prided themselves in being among the best in the

world. In terms of dryland farming, there is little doubt Canadians producers are good at getting the most bushels out of every acre. Certainly the technology is there. There are numerous companies working to create ever better varieties to grow, not to mention working on the nutrient concoctions to optimize production, and of course the chemicals to combat disease, fungus and weed issues. At one point the production of the highest quality grains was a definite edge in the marketplace. Bakers desired Canadian wheat for its milling quality. The production was targeted to premium markets. That seems less an advantage today. Of course as consumers, we too tend to look less at the quality of food, or at least we tend to balance that consideration with price. The idea of non-brand name products on the store shelves seems to be increasing. We are even now seeing store-specific label lines, getting aggressive ad campaigns, even though they are often marketed as lower cost options. The cost is definitely more of a factor on many levels today. Recently Farm Credit Canada

Calvin Daniels (FCC), noted Canadian agriculture benefited from a relatively low dollar throughout 2016 and this trend is expected to continue into 2017. That was the report at least, according to J.P. Gervais, FCC’s chief agricultural economist. “There are certainly other factors that could influence Canadian agriculture, such as the global economy, the investment landscape, commodity and energy prices,” said Gervais in a release. He was speaking about his top five agriculture economic trends to watch in 2017. “The Canadian dollar, however, has been a major driver for profitability in the last couple of years and could have the biggest influence on the overall success of Canada’s agriculture industry in 2017.” Gervais is forecasting the dollar will hover around the 75-cent mark and will remain below its five-year average value relative to the U.S. dollar in 2017, potentially making the loonie the most significant economic driver to watch

in Canadian agriculture this year. The dollar means Canadian production can be purchased at a lower real cost. Marketers can walk into a foreign purchasing agent offering the usual quality we are known for, but at a price made lower by the dollar. There is of course a flipside to that dollar, as anyone who turns to online sources such as Amazon. com and will recognize at present. And, a lower Canadian dollar will make a number of farm inputs more expensive, at least those imported to this country. It does come down to a tradeoff, determining if the low dollar stimulates sales enough to offset increased input costs. Gervais says it will. “Given the choice, producers are better off with a low dollar than one that’s relatively strong compared to the U.S. dollar,” he said. Whether those same economic realities will extend to the nonfarming Canadian is perhaps less clear though.

Do it for the girls: new change room at Carrot River arena Emma Meldrum

Carrot River’s arena is getting a new and improved girls’ change room. The community centre is undergoing renovations throughout the year. One of the changes coming to the building is a revamped space for girls to get ready for hockey games. “We noticed more and more girls continuing to play minor hockey at the local level where it is boys and girls playing together,” said Miranda Blaber, the town’s recreation director. “There used to be one or two girls

here and there that would play and we had a tiny little room for them, we put one or two in there and it worked.” Now, Blaber said, as many as five girls may be playing on a mixed team (they may also choose to play on an all-girls hockey team). “We needed an extra dressing room with a little extra space,” she said. “We created this space and we’ve kind of dubbed it as a girls dressing room. It’ll be used for many other groups as well.” The Carrot River Arena has received grant funding from the Canada 150 program, through which the

federal government provides money for infrastructure in celebration of the country’s 150th anniversary. “Part of the renovations that we’re seeing happening now and that we will see happening are going to be due to that and some things are started already. The big major bulk of it will be starting this spring and everything should be completed by fall of 2017.” The work encompasses changes to the entrance, upgrades in the kitchen and changes to players’ benches and heating systems. Pat Flegg, the arena manager, said he was most looking forward to the


changes to the entrance and the girls’ dressing room. The girls’ change room is part of the overall renovations occurring in the building. The opening date for the new space isn’t yet decided, but Blaber said the room will ensure girls are comfortable. “It’s nice to be able to give them the space and keep them feeling comfortable while they [play on a mixed team].” Currently, girls change in the smaller space and join their team for a pre-game meeting when all players are ready.

texted. “We have so much chemistry out on the ice. It feels like we have been playing together for years.” Logan said that Peterson is skilled and is willing to pay the price to score. “He will go into the dirty areas of the ice,” the bench boss said. “His quick release shot is probably his biggest thing.” This season Peterson is piling up points more prolifically than he previously had. His 29 points are just two less than the 31 he posted in 40 games last season and the 20 he had as a rookie. Peterson’s 17 goals are a career high. He had 13 last season. Peterson is enjoying this year. “It’s nice hav—Nick Peterson Thunder player ing such a local team,” he texted. “Most of our players are from the surrounding area.

Nipawin’s Nick Peterson has greatly enjoyed his three seasons suiting up for the Thunder Junior B team. After two years with the Tri-Town Thunder, the veteran forward is a key member of the renamed Carrot River Outback Thunder. The captain is counted on as a points producer and leader. “I have nothing but good things to say about my last three years with the Thunder,” texted Peterson, who is studying education at the University of Saskatchewan. “They have been the best years of my life.

Kleiter and Jones take junior curling finals Emma Meldrum

The last rock had Team Jones so stressed that they couldn’t watch. Then, when they saw what it had hit, they cried with joy. Jones faced Team Mitchell in the junior women’s final Jan. 8. In the 10th, Mitchell needed two points to force the match to an extra end. Jessica Mitchell’s final shot wasn’t able to curl past a guard, giving Mitchell only one point, for a final score of 8-7. “I definitely couldn’t watch that last shot. I might have had a heart attack. Once [my teammate] said that it was on the guard, I felt a little bit of hope, but you never know on this ice, because it was backing off all week,” said skip Kaitlyn Jones of the win. Regina-based Team Jones was forced to play an additional tie-breaking match that same morning against Team Wisniewski. Jones had lost to that team only a few days before. Jones came out the winner after an extra end gave them a 10-9 lead. Their second game of the day didn’t start well, with the score at 3-1 in the fourth end. “We struggled a little bit in the first half but picked it up in the second half so we were able to come out with that four-ender in the nine, and that really was the turning point for our game,” she said. “We definitely made a couple of mistakes in the tenth end, but it ended up working out.” Mitchell’s team, another Saskatoon-based group, consisted of Courtney Orsen, Amanda Waterfield and Danielle Waterfield. They won every game except the final. Jones won the provincial final alongside teammates Rayann Zerr, Shantel Hutton and Sara England.

Kleiter takes men’s final

The men’s final was decided halfway through the game on Jan. 8. Kleiter and Stewart traded one-point ends but in the fifth, Kleiter scored a decisive three points for a 6-2 finish. “It turned out, we made a few shots early that were key, and then a couple misses, and we were able to take advantage of it,” said skip Rylan Kleiter of the fifth end. The Saskatoon-based team consisted of Joshua Mattern, Matthieu Taillon and Trevor Johnson. “They’re great for support, shot making, everything,” said Kleiter of the team. “[We’re] best friends, on and off the ice.” Team Kleiter faced Team Stewart in the final, another Saskatoon product. Jared Latos, Tony Neufeld, Andrew Hodgson and Brayden Stewart lost only two

games throughout the tournament. Meanwhile, Team Kleiter remained undefeated throughout the week. “It’s kind of a relief for us after losing two years in a row, getting a chance to win,” he said. “We knew we’d prepared well for the event and we were ready for it.” He said the team’s confidence was boosted after the first win of the tournament.

From Melfort to Victoria

The Jiffy Lube-sponsored provincial championships,

which were held in Melfort from Jan. 4 to 8, saw 12 women’s teams and 12 men’s teams compete for the chance to represent Saskatchewan at the Canadian Junior Curling Championships in Victoria, B.C. later this month. “It’s such an incredible feeling,” said Jones of the upcoming competition. “We’re hoping to at least make the playoff round. We don’t know what’s going to happen, but that’s our goal, to make playoffs at least.” Kleiter is also looking forward to the event. “It’s always something special. I’m super excited.”

Hawks have dissapointing week Christopher Lee

Humboldt Journal Photo/Christopher Lee

It was a disappointing week for the Nipawin Hawks as they finished with a 1-2 record and were swept in a crucial homeand-home series with the Humboldt Broncos. The Hawks started their week with a dominating 5-0 win over the Yorkton Terriers on home ice on Jan. 3. Doug Johnson, the Hawks’ coach, was pleased with the Hawks’ effort, noting their tenacity, work ethic, structure, systems and physicality were all where they needed to be. That was one of their best games all year, said Johnson. “[Our] goaltending was great, the back end moved the puck real well, we got up ice. Just a solid effort top to bottom, [There was] nothing that was outstanding, just everything was really good.” The Hawks followed that up with an excellent first period against the

Broncos in Humboldt on Jan. 6 but things fell apart in the second as they gave up five goals en route to a 6-2 loss. Despite the loss, Johnson was not overly upset with the effort of the team, noting they outshot the Broncos in the first and third periods and they just could not catch a break. “We didn’t have a whole lot of puck luck that game and we just made some

mistakes that we normally don’t.” The following night the teams returned to the cage for the back half of the home-and-home, which the Broncos took 2-1 for their first win in Nipawin since Jan. 2014. It was a good effort, said Johnson, but not a great effort as Humboldt played a strong game. “I thought we could have been a little more

physical, I thought we could have been a little more tenacious,” said Johnson regarding the loss. Losing both games against the Broncos hurt the Hawks in the standings as they had a chance to pull as many as six points clear of the Broncos for home ice in the playoffs but instead find themselves two points behind. “We dug ourselves in a little more of a hole than we wanted but you just have to learn from it. Learn what went well, what went wrong, why we’re in the situation and get better because of it,” said Johnson. The usually dependable power play went south for the Hawks this week as they finished just 1/19 in their three games, which Johnson said came down to being too passive and perimeter with the players looking to pass too often instead of shooting. Looking ahead, the Hawks continue their busy schedule with three games this week with games in Melfort and Melville Jan. 11 and 13 before returning home for a rematch with the Yorkton Terriers Jan. 14. After a tough week Johnson said the key for the team is refocusing.
