Mayoral candidate ready for new challenge Joanne Paulson Saskatoon Express elly Moore has entered the election. The newest mayoral candidate, who declared Monday, may not be a recognizable political name; but she believes she is ready to take on the campaign and the highest chair at city hall. “I think we need a fresh perspective,” she said during a long, wide-ranging interview. “I think we need some new leadership, and a new leadership approach. I think we need someone with the kind of background that I have, with the strong business background, as well as the experience at multiple levels of government. “And, I think that we also need to look at things in a different way. The city has been on a course for some time, and it’s a course that I think is not 100 per cent in the right direction. “With a different perspective, we can start to have, for example, (a) more integrated plan . . . a clear plan for our future that brings the best of what we’ve got and addresses the things that aren’t working well.” Moore, 43, previously held a senior position in the city’s planning department and is presently the director, community and client services in disability programs for the Social Services Ministry as well as a small business owner. Her fascination with cities and how they work began at the end of high school. At around the time she graduated from Nutana Collegiate, Moore was working for the Travelodge, where she encountered the president of the planning program at the
Kelley Moore says there needs to be more transparency and more conversation at the mayoral and council level, so that citizens can see what’s happening and be engaged. (Photo Submitted) University of Saskatchewan. “(She) was always talking about very interesting aspects of our community — where park benches were, where roads were, density of neighbourhoods. There was somebody else, another friend of ours, she was talking to, and I thought, where are you guys learning all this stuff? “She said, ‘well, planning school,’ I said, ‘well, how do I get to planning school?’ That naively. No one in my family had graduated from high school or
university . . . the priority was working and getting a good job and contributing. So I applied, with their help, and I got in.” Moore found she loved the program, and graduated in 1998 with a bachelor of arts in regional and urban development. It led her to an internship with the Town of Martensville, and then a job with the City of Saskatoon. The city hired her, in early Internet days, to put all the programming descriptions up on the Net. They subsequently
offered her a full time job; “it sort of felt like it was destiny, really.” She remained in the planning department, rising through the ranks, for seven years. “I had a lot of successes in that work, and realized there were good ways to engage the people and there were definitely not good ways to engage the people. I knew I had something to contribute on that. I think I looked at things from a different perspective. (Continued on page 4)

Green Acres Gardening keeps man’s colitis in check
Christopher and Wanetta Dunlop are long-time members of the Community Farmers Market and the Saskatoon Farmers’ Market. (Photo by Sandy Hutchinson) Cam Hutchinson Saskatoon Express he first time Christopher Dunlop set up a stand to sell produce from his garden, he took home 75 cents. He was 18 then and about to enter university. He set up that first booth at the Clavet store, approximately five kilometres west of his family’s country home. “It was discouraging, but I went back the next day and made $20, so it was a significant increase,” Dunlop said with a smile. “For the next two months, I made between $30 and $60 a day, so it was OK. Minimum wage back then was $5 an hour. I was making minimum wage and I was my own man.” He’s come a long way since then. He now gardens full time and credits his love of the outdoors for his recovery — or as close as one can get — from colitis. DC081504 Darlene Dunlop’s interest in farming and garden-
ing stretches back to his childhood at his grandparents’ farm near Esterhazy. “My grandma and grandpa on both sides always had a garden. My grandpa farmed about 1,000 acres by Esterhazy. I always watched him and he was very hard working. I like to try to be like him.” Grandpa would be proud of the 15-hour days Dunlop often spends in his garden. Garden seems like an insufficient word to use to describe this spread. Think 40 acres, not a backyard veggie patch or community garden. The same love of the land extended to his grandparents in the Clavet area. “My dad’s mom and father would come out here all the time and have a goodsized garden just for the immediate family. Grandpa would be picking peas and doing the potatoes. Both of my grandpas loved to garden. That’s where I first got interested.” That interest and tradition carried on to his parents, Donna and Doug Dunlop.
Christopher Dunlop’s first paying job in the gardening business came by chance in 1994 when was 16. He dropped off resumes at businesses up and down Eighth Street and all around the city in search of a summer job. Nobody called, so one day he took a drive out Valley Road to see if he would have better luck there. “I stopped in at Robertson Valley Farm, gave them my resume and Don Robertson said I could start the next day. It was the end of June and they needed somebody else to help.” He worked for the Robertsons for three summers, before setting up that first stand in Clavet. The next year he moved to the corner of Louise Street and Preston Avenue, on a patch of grass on the old Esso station. Then, he moved across the street to the parking lot at Market Mall for two years. While there, AS081504 Aaron
he was invited to join the Saskatoon Farmers’ Market in 2002 when it was at City Hall. He has been a member ever since. Since 2007, he has also been a member of the Community Farmers Market, which is in front of London Drugs on Eighth Street on Tuesdays and Fridays and in front of Peavey Mart on 51st Street on Thursdays. He has been the president since 2013. “For 95 to 100 per cent of them, this is their main source of income. There are no hobby farmers. I’m trying to keep the Community Farmers Market for people who do it as their main source of income.” Dunlop and his wife, Wanetta, set up at the Saskatoon Farmers’ Market every Saturday. They are the ones with the typo on their sign, or so people think. The business is really called Peggy’s Guarden. It was named after Peggy, the dog who faithfully and efficiently chased critters out of the garden during her life. Peggy didn’t go into the garden. She worked the perimeter, Dunlop said. Dunlop was diagnosed with colitis in 1997 and, by 2003, his condition was much worse. “When I was going into university my specialist was giving me information for surgery to remove part of my intestine.” He would also have to have a colostomy. “I didn’t really like the thought of that,” he said. He was studying to be a teacher when he realized it wasn’t what he wanted and wasn’t good for his health. He wanted to be outdoors, getting his hands dirty in the garden. “In the past few years before that, my little business was growing a bit and I really enjoyed that and it was a lot less stressful.” He told his parents he wanted to garden full time. “At first they weren’t very happy with that and probably didn’t think I could make a living at it. I assured them that I could. They knew my colitis was getting quite bad, so reluctantly they said, ‘go ahead.’ The following year I started to see a little bit of improvement in my condition.” (Continued on page 7)

Engaging citizens key commitment for Moore
(Continued from page 1) eople were really feeling engaged. We saw a lot of investment go into communities, a lot of partnering between residents and business and industrial owners, different human service organizations. “Pleasant Hill is a good example of that — the revitalization project.” She wanted to dive more deeply into this kind of community development. In 2006, she began to look at doing her master’s, and completed it in 2012, in land development and participatory democracy. As part of it, she made a number of recommendations specific to the south downtown, and how to engage the public in its development. Her thesis is now being used in some of the graduate level classes to teach how to “engage the public in land development, in a way that is less adversarial and more focused on common outcomes.” Part of her work involved her in several local area plans, including the aforementioned Pleasant Hill plan. She presented a report to the regional and sectoral committee — a human service committee made up of high-ranking health officials, directors of the school boards and others. The plan was not just well-accepted; it won a premier’s award. A few years later, when the co-ordinator for the committee retired, Moore got that job. She wasn’t really seeking to leave the city, but it was a great opportunity. “I always felt we could help people up to their doorstep, but we couldn’t help what was happening inside those doors, inside those homes. My background had been so strong in land development and future growth, trends around socio-economic demographic, that I wanted to understand more how we could help people in their homes.” From there, Moore moved to the Saskatchewan Housing Corporation as director, Housing Policy and Program Development; but that job was in Regina. She commuted for nearly two years, but knew her heart and life were in Saskatoon. At the time,Darlene the government had another DC081506
job in mind for her — a permanent job in Regina, but she had to turn it down. “I could not leave Saskatoon,” she said. “Who could leave Saskatoon? Anybody who I know who’s left Saskatoon misses it, and is always trying to find a way back again.” The province was not so easily dissuaded. So, in 2010, they offered her the directorship role she presently holds, in which she oversees service provision to people living with disabilities. She is also, with her spouse of 10 years, Lenore Swystun, an owner of Prairie Wild Consulting Co. The company provides collaborative consulting services focused on urban and regional planning. (Off-work time is spent with legions of family and friends, and usually outside — in the backyard of the renovated Caswell Hill bungalow the couple shares, at the lake, or at Moore’s mother’s farm.) All of which brings her to the mayor’s race. Running for office Her work life has been fulfilling and challenging, and now, she says, she is ready to be challenged again. “I have a lot to give. I have more to give,” which leads her to why she will run for mayor of Saskatoon. Moore explains that she understands how planning works at the senior level; the complexity of decisions that need to be made; how funding works; and that she has been at the decision-making table at senior administrative levels. She also understands funding transfers, and how negotiations work. “I understand how to put the people first,” she said. “One of the key things for me is that the city needs to make sure they have the public in public service, and the people are at the heart of every decision that is made. That is the number one thing that I have committed to – is ensuring the decisions being made are representative of the people we are serving.” Moore has released a six-pillar platform in which the first pillar is listening to communities. (The platform is posted on her
website, moore4mayor.ca, or call 306-2914449.) The others are financial responsibility and accountability; sustainable planning and infrastructure; civic service satisfaction; safety and security; and investing in small business and entrepreneurship. She sees many challenges with the city’s growing debt, legacy projects, crime, deteriorating infrastructure, and citizens feeling removed from decision-making. “The question is, is it working? And I’m going to say, it is not,” she said. “Fundamentally, I don’t think we can accept the status quo. “I think I bring the right combination of business and government experience. I think I have the right energy and commitment and passion that could help us to address and get on the right track with some of the issues we’re facing. “I see a path forward. I think that’s exactly what we need, is someone who sees a path forward, who is including the community in that process of understanding of what’s going on.” One of the major issues she sees coming up in the campaign is the south downtown, and whether too much time and money
has gone into its development, along with tax abatements for the upcoming hotel and condo development. People are frustrated about how long it’s taken to get shovels in the ground — and they’re not in yet, she noted. The Remai Modern Art Gallery will also come up; Moore believes the project was handled poorly, and disrespected the Mendel family. Crime will be another big issue. “We shouldn’t be jockeying for first place to be the crime capital of Canada,” said Moore. One of the primary responsibilities of the city is to ensure a safe environment, and we have a serious problem in Saskatoon that needs to be addressed, she said. “We cannot allow ourselves to think this is normal.” Overall, Moore says there needs to be more transparency and more conversation at the mayoral and council level, so that citizens can see what’s happening and be engaged. “That’s the kind of leader I would be, and bring to the public. And I think that’s what the public is looking for.” (The Saskatoon Express intends to profile all mayoral candidates during the election campaign.)

when teams made successful and convenient mid-season acquisitions, especially if the teams were going to be Grey Cup game hosts. This year’s rapid turnover of players on the Rider team is thoroughly perplexing. Some of the players are going to work out eventually. Some are going to stay in the category of being disposed of by another team, which means they aren’t good enough to be with the Riders either. Totally absent is that feeling of “once a Roughrider, always a Roughrider.” It’s seemingly a case of making do today and hoping for the best tomorrow. There is seldom a chance to build a relationship, such as recent stars like Weston Dressler, John Chick and Chris Getzlaf did in the community. In Saskatchewan, community is key. It was a different time in a different era, but my favourite memories in CFL press boxes occurred during from 1960 until 1966, a memory capped by Saskatchewan’s first Grey Cup victory, a 29-14 conquest of the heavily-favoured Ottawa Rough Riders. The team was built by Ken Preston, an amiable and competent general manager who realized the value of Canadian content. The team was gradually developed by Bob Shaw, a former National Football Leaguer who became coach in 1963 and

1964 as George Reed, Ron Lancaster, Ed McQuarters and Hugh Campbell arrived as stars. When Shaw left to join the Toronto Argonauts, Eagle Keys became the coach who quietly and effectively turned the Riders into Grey Cup champions. Some of the 1966 stars visited Regina this summer to again share in the appreciation the fans once held for them. Some have passed. The fact remains that the 1966 Riders were great because of Canadian content, superb import acquisitions and a love that all the players shared with the community. Ron Atchison, Ted Urness, Gord Barwell, Alan Ford, Dale West, Wayne Shaw, Ted Dushinski, Henry Dorsch, Gene Wlasiuk and Larry Dumelie were among those who played the game to the hilt and lived and worked in the community. Each had Saskatchewan background written all over them. Reg Whitehouse wasn’t originally from Saskatchewan, but he started playing in 1952, married a Regina girl and settled down suitably with the offensive line. Some played 10 years or longer. Ford and Dorsch later served as Rider general managers. For so many players to come out of Saskatchewan and serve the Riders so nobly was what was Roughrider football was all about. Regrettably, we will never see a team so defined and so loyal ever again. FOOTBALL IN Saskatchewan will always be recognized by Rider Pride. But there are days when the CFL and perhaps Rider management take too much for granted. CFL rules dictate that player movement is encouraged. There is no longer a leaning towards players establishing roots, like some of the Rider imports did in the 1960s and still do. The CFL acknowledges Saskatchewan’s fervour, but sometimes their scheduling of games places a stress on fans travelling from Prince Albert, Saskatoon and Swift Current. Those are long one-day return trips, the kinds of challenges which don’t happen in other provinces. The CFL’s major commitment in scheduling seems to favour the television network, mostly so Ontario markets get games at hours convenient to them. The Roughriders keep telling their fans to be patient in the lean days of 2016. They’ll never admit it, but the Riders have most of their fans hog-tied because the fans want the inside track to next year’s choice seats in the new park. It doesn’t matter if the fans live in misery this year. Maybe the Roughriders will make a remarkable recovery and get a playoff berth. But the results of the first six games, the fact they gave up 76 points in two games, and the challenge of a tougher schedule (mostly on the road) don’t really cause anyone to be overly optimistic.

Dunlop met Wanetta around the time he started gardening full time. He smiles as he talks about meeting at a Saskatoon bar. “There was a lull in the conversation and I don’t think many people would say this, and out of the blue I told her, ‘I sell vegetables for a living.’” That might not be the best pickup line ever uttered.
“She found that quite strange,” he said. In the summer, Wanetta does most of the selling at the markets, while Christopher is in the garden. Dunlop takes pride in what he does and what he offers to customers. Red Norland potatoes and carrots are his specialty crops. He also grows beans, onions, beets, spinach, dill and cucumbers. “I grow an organic crop with my 20 acres and my mom and dad’s 20 acres that has never been sprayed . . . I take pride in growing a crop that is very healthy for people.” And to think it started more than 20 years ago with a day of 75 cents in sales.

Folkfest’s forgotten soldiers:
askatoon celebrates the 37th edition of Folkfest this week. The festival has become a beacon of cultural celebration in the city of bridges and I can certainly attest to that myself. As a Ukrainian Canadian, I am proud to celebrate my culture, traditions and language in any way I can. My family immigrated to this country more than 115 years ago and I do everything in my power to keep that culture thriving in Columnist my city. Since the age of seven, I have been closely involved with the Ukrainian Karpaty Pavillion. My parents dragged me out to Prairieland Park every year for my weekly stay, setting up Wednesday and packing up Sunday night. When I was too young to help set the expansive pavilion up from scratch, I would just distract all the volunteers from working too quickly. Once that grace period was over, I was among the foot soldiers preparing the hall to become the pavilion we all recognize it as today. The festival is essentially three days of madness, as a small group of volunteers attempts to manage Saskatoon walking through its doors. This time of year signals the end of summer vacation, organizing the kids for school or your last precious moments at the lake. For me, this time of year always meant Folkfest is near. I can smell it in the air. Sleep becomes precious and my cheeks hurt from smiling and laughing. That’s what it’s all about.
Volunteers dish out perogies at the Ukrainian Karpaty Pavilion. Folkfest runs August 18-20. (Photo supplied by Judy-Anne Chabun) Folkfest will have more than 5,000 volunteers working at the 20 pavilions in the city this year. At the Karpaty pavilion, 356 participated last year, filling 575 positions. That is compared to the upwards of 32,000 people that go through the building throughout the weekend. Scenes of Saving Private Ryan flash through my head. “We must hold this bridge!” turns into a frenzy of flying cabbage rolls, perogies and hutzul hammers like a war scene of food and booze. (Get your cabbage rolls early. They never seem to be available by Saturday night.) A quick rundown of what the Karpaty Ukrainian pavilion has to deal with: 52,000 perogies, 23,000 cabbage rolls, 75 gallons of sour cream all being served up over the course of the weekend. The more staggering fact is that numbers like this could be plucked from every pavilion. Each one has a team of volunteers working endlessly to

see their culture thrive for three days, and to see a man eat a plate of perogies in a matter of seconds. True story. Because of my involvement in the pavilion, I was selected to be youth ambassador in 2011. This was the first time I was able to see other pavilions at Folkfest, besides the odd trip to the Philippines or Scottish pavilions. It was an eye-opening experience to be put into those cultures, even for a moment. The fellowship among the ambassadors was also something to behold. I was sent on assignment to take photographs of the Ex parade earlier this week and saw that same sentiment on their parade float. They were having a blast, but the best is yet to come for those youths. Executive director Terri Rau said youths are “our future,” adding “they need to really learn and stay involved with their culture. Those are our future pavilion managers.”
She’s right. It may not always be the cool thing to do, but in this city there are hundreds, even thousands of kids who are in tune with their cultures and could be pillars of the community in 30 years. Their value cannot be understated for this occasion. A lack of involvement could be a detriment to Folkfest in the future. Folkfest isn’t just a labour of love for the volunteers. It’s second nature. Volunteers of Folkfest don’t just give their time for a cause that strikes interest in them. Many volunteers have a deep connection to Folkfest. It’s a part of the year they get to celebrate their culture and share it in such a unique way. For many, it’s the only time this happens. Plenty take holidays from their paying jobs to keep things in order for the weekend. Take a stroll through all the pavilions this weekend, especially for those of us who can’t.

Another year of fun and fellowship Youth ambassadors enjoy their time during last week’s Ex parade (Photo by Keenan Sorokan) Keenan Sorokan Saskatoon Expres et the food, music and celebration begin. Folkfest is set to kick off its 37th year in Saskatoon. A stalwart of entertainment and culture in Saskatoon since 1980, the festival is set for some minor changes and hidden gems for its 2016 edition. Executive director Terri Rau can attest to the vast changes that Folkfest is going through, not just this year, but in others in the past. She’s been involved with the festival for 19 years and can speak volumes about the festival and the changes since she joined. “I’m hooked,” she said with a laugh. “We try not to have déjà vu pavilions where you walk in and see the same thing you saw the year before.” One of the festival’s foremost developments in 2016 is the partnership with the Ximity app, a free app available on the App store. The app uses Bluetooth beacons placed at each pavilion providing up-to-theminute information about each location. “We’re trying to really provide a higherlevel experience for our patrons,” Rau said. “As soon as you get within 100 feet from the pavilion, it will bring up the menu, entertainment schedules, anything that they would like you to know about.” After being born and raised in Saskatoon, Rau went on to Toronto in her formative years, performing with the Famous People Players in Toronto for 12 years before returning to Saskatoon in 1996. She enrolled in an event co-ordinating course and started her job as administrative assistant at Folkfest only a week after completion. She now acts as Folkfest’s executive director, a capacity she enjoys daily. “I love it because every year it’s different. It’s challenging, with new themes, new members.” There are a number of changes at this year’s festival.Aaron AS081518
The RBC Global Village, which is in its fifth year, is relocating to the Kickin’ Horse Saloon at Prairieland Park in an attempt to capitalize on the crowds flooding Prairieland. The Global Village, located east of Hall E, hosts four smaller venues that wouldn’t be able to create stand-alone pavilions of their own — Nepal, Peru, Sudan and Vietnam. The hope with this global village is to grow these cultures into their own pavilions a few years into the future. “I think we really see the need to make sure that everybody gets an opportunity to participate, even the small groups,” Rau said. “There’s room for everybody in our festival.” While the festival is constantly expanding on its rich history, patrons might notice a few vacancies from years past. The fan-favourite Irish pavilion is not taking part this year, the first time that has happened since the pavilion began participating 17 years ago. Also included in that category are the Brazil, Hungary, Francophone and Jewish pavilions. That brings the total pavilion number of pavilions to 20. When organization began in the winter, there was a potential of 28 pavilions claiming a stake in the festival. “They’re all going to be missed. Sometimes the days and circumstances don’t allow for them to participate, but they are all coming back in full force next year. So we’re hoping to be back to 25 to 26 pavilions next year. Close to our record of 29,” Rau said. Organizers estimate more than 32,000 people attended the festival last year and are expecting more of the same for the three days of unlimited access this weekend. “It’s just like visiting your neighbours. And that’s what makes Saskatoon uniquely great.”

Going Back... • Back to School • Fall Activties
Saskatoon Public Schools committed to cultural responsibility
hen the historic Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) released its Calls to Action last winter, Saskatoon Public Schools (SPS) heard them loud and clear. So when the doors open to a new school year this fall, SPS officials will be laying the groundwork for its students to learn from this piece of Canadian history. Shane Skjerven, deputy director of education, says it is “incumbent upon us” to respond to the Calls to Action pertaining to education. In 2009, the federal government established the TRC led by Manitoba Senator Murray Sinclair. The commission’s goal was to examine how the flawed residential school system affected Canada’s Indigenous communities. Last December,
the TRC released its final report and detailed recommendations on how Canada should go forward. At its June meeting, the school board approved a response to the TRC findings that would see them reflected in the division’s work with students, staff and community partners. “We believe our students’ hearts and minds are open for learning,” reads the board response. “We are responsible for teaching them about Canada’s history of colonialism and the impact of residential schools, which is a difficult yet essential aspect of their educational journey. This knowledge is foundational to the goal of reconciliation.” The division is already a leader in integrating cultural learning and practises
into education. Last spring, the school division celebrated the 10th anniversary of the Nêhiyâwiwin Cree Language and Culture program, a pre-kindergarten to Grade 7 program offered at Confederation Park Community School. It was established to help students learn about their culture from traditional leaders. Another example of the division’s commitment can be found at Westmount Community School, home to the division’s Métis cultural program. The school established a role for Kohkums after recognizing the importance grandmothers play in the lives of their students and seeing a need to strengthen relationships with their students and staff as well. “We’re committed to being culturally responsive,” says Skjerven. In its response, SPS has promised to build up students’ understanding of this period in Canadian history and its lasting impact. Lessons will align with provincial AS081515 Aaron GSCS16 LiteracyPostersFin1.4.qxp_Layout 1 2016-06-16 3:57 PM Page 1
curriculum and staff will look for ways to bring Indigenous perspectives to a variety of subject areas. The board also committed to providing respectful, culturally responsive environments for all students, staff members and families. Skjerven says SPS needs to work towards greater understanding of Indigenous history amongst teachers and staff members. As well, partnerships with First Nations, Inuit and Metis stakeholders will be strengthened. This includes an educational alliance between the division and Whitecap Dakota First Nation, which will culminate with Whitecap’s partnership in the new elementary school being built in Stonebridge. At the end of the day, it’s the school division’s responsibility to teach students about our collective history, Skjerven says. “We will use the Calls to Action to help shape and guide our work.”

ranite countertops. Spacious living room. Walk-in closet. Dual vanity. All sorts of features get highlighted in real estate. When was the last time you saw “great foundation” as the first feature listed? It’s something you take for granted. If buying an older home, a problem with the foundation is a deal breaker, no matter how perfect the shade of green in the bedroom is. Education is somewhat similar. We have all sorts of special, and very valuable, programs and services—everything from English as an additional language, special needs services, career programs, extended learning opportunities, excellent athletic and fine arts programs, technology in the classroom, and the list goes on. At Greater Saskatoon Catholic Schools, we build all of our programs on a solid foundation of learning and discovery. Foundational learning elements of literacy (reading and writing) and mathematics continue to be areas of focus to ensure all of our students are prepared for success. (Your grandparents may have referred to these as the “three Rs” despite the fact it takes a little imagination and breaking some grammar rules to get a third R-sound out of arithmetic.) “Literacy includes reading and writing, but it is so much broader than that,” said Terri Fradette, assistant superintendent of learning services. “We are teaching stuDC081581 Darlene dents to understand what they are reading.
Are they able to conceptualize? Are they able to get the deeper meaning or symbolism from the text? Are they able to imagine and create? These are the foundational skills we impart on our students.” Math instruction has been much debated in recent years. Evolving ways to communicate never-changing truths of mathematics don’t mean the importance of math has diminished. Rather, they highlight how critical math is. Fradette explained, “Math is so fundamental to so many things in life; we need to find ways to make sure everyone grasps math skills and concepts, and that means adjusting instruction for the various ways children learn.” Curriculum and instruction intends to make everyone a “math-person” and not accept the notion that “my mind doesn’t work that way, so I’m not a math person.” Faith is also an integral part of learning at Greater Saskatoon Catholic Schools. “Our Catholic belief is built on the foundation and teachings of Jesus—the rock, the cornerstone,” said Diane Boyko, chair of the division’s Board of Education. “The way we interact with our students, parents and coworkers, and the way we view the world around us and try to make it a better place is built on a solid foundation of faith. We don’t claim to have a perfectly manicured house, but we are built on the most important foundation—the foundation of the Church established by Jesus.”
Our goal is to see all children and youth discover, develop and act upon their potential.

The second time was when I was in Haiti (well, all the times I’ve been in Haiti). The only water in the entire compound came out of a tap set four inches off the ground, making filling buckets rather difficult — we filled a cup, then poured it in the bucket. Repeat, repeat. A thousand times.
For example, one person would pour some clean water over their head while another stood by with another bucket, attempting to catch the now not-so clean water as it runs off, to use for something else requiring less-clean water (say, washing socks). To this day, however, I have friends who say they have never had a shower that felt as good as the ones we had on those disgustingly hot nights in Port au Prince. To be clear, this isn’t about somehow minimizing the impact of the Husky oil spill. Quite the opposite. If we take clean water for granted because we have it in abundance, that fact is also what drives our indifference to it. Because make no mistake, that’s what we are — indifferent. And if we have the vast luxury of being indifferent, shouldn’t that make us even more determined to be appreciative for those that will never take clean water for granted?

Princess Leia partied with the Rolling Stones Cam Hutchinson Saskatoon Express he Saskatoon Comic & Entertainment Expo will have an out-of-thisworld star as its special guest again this year. In 2015, William Shatner of Star Trek fame regaled those in attendance with tales from his time as the captain of the Enterprise. This year, Carrie Fisher from Star Wars transports in. Fisher played Princess Leia in the Star Wars trilogy (1977 to 1983) and returned in 2015 for the blockbuster Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Fisher will participate in a panel discussion — at no extra charge — and will also be available for photo ops and autographs. Fisher is known to be candid at these events. At a recent one, according to a column in the Telegraph, she talked about partying with the Rolling Stones at her rented home just hours before filming the Cloud City arrival scene in The Empire Strikes back. “I said to Harrison (Ford), ‘The Rolling Stones are going to come over!’ And we had a really early call the following morning, but you have to measure the fun — Rolling Stones, or early call? Rolling Stones, or early call? And we decided on both. “And they’re a partying bunch of guys, and though I didn’t drink at the time, to be kind of amenable, or whatever, I drank. I used to say I’m allergic to drinking, and this would have been a demonstration of that. And we stayed up pretty late. Charlie (Watts), that one, he didn’t have a lot of facial expressions. He’s like the Darth Vader of the Stones. “And we stayed up really late and got to the set about two hours later. And we weren’t hungover, we were still in our cups. And if you watch the movie you can see that Harrison and I are smiling as we arrived in Cloud City. Doesn’t that sound AS081523 Aaron

like a euphemism?” Fisher will join the likes of James Marsters (Spike, Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and voice actors Laura Bailey (Dragon Ball Z, Avengers Assemble, Infamous: Second Son, Halo V, Critical Role) and Travis Willingham (Dragon Ball Z, Avengers Assemble, Shelf Life, Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, Critical Role) at the event. The Expo is a two-day festival of all things pop culture. Those attending can check out hundreds of vendors showcasing everything from costumes to collectibles, meet and hear from their favourite artists and actors, and witness fan-made cosplay roaming the halls and at the costume contest. The Expo attracted 13,000 attendees last year, and record-breaking ticket sales so far indicate it will exceed that number this year, said Saskatoon Expo VP and spokesperson Lindsay Thomas, aka Emily Expo, in a news release. Single-day tickets and weekend passes are available now ranging from $20 to $70 for adults, with discounted rates for youth (aged 8-12). Children aged seven and under can attend for free when accompanied by a ticket-holding adult. For the best value, a limited number of deluxe weekend passes are also available, which include early entry, Expo merchandise and more.

done. When the tracks are removed the roadbed will have to be rebuilt and prepared for paving. The city didn’t want to wait because that part of the project will happen later this construction season. Question: On Glasgow Street, traffic is brought to a stop in a couple of places. Motorists must yield to oncoming traffic. Why is this? Mayor Atchison: People in the neighbourhood were quite concerned about speeders along Glasgow. I can tell you some drivers go at quite a clip. There is a playground on that street and a dog park at Broadway and Glasgow. There were concerns, so the idea was to slow down traffic in each direction. You have to wait for the oncoming traffic to go by before you go around it. It sounds wonderful in theory. But I can tell you from personal experience it’s a little unsettling when you see a vehicle coming toward you and they are supposed to yield to you, but instead speed up because they don’t want to wait. These zones are temporary right now. City administration and residents will see how they work and determine if they should be permanent. Safety is number one. Question: Why are there various traffic restrictions at various times of day on 33rd Street West?
Mayor Atchison: A lot of businesses on 33rd Street want their customers to be able to park in front of their business during the day. In the morning and afternoon rush hour, you are not allowed to park there. It helps the flow of traffic to keep the lanes open. Mayor’s Note: Folkfest is coming up this week. It is one of the great events in our community. The different ethnic and cultural groups in our community showcase their heritage with dances, foods and displays. I hope everyone in Saskatoon takes the time from Aug.18 to 20 to get out to a few of the pavilions to experience the world. Folkfest passports cost $16. Where else can you travel the world in three days for just $16? I believe it is important we all understand the heritage of our fellow citizens so we can grow stronger together. I hope all of our different cultural and ethnic communities continue to share their pride in their heritage and their pride in Saskatoon. Did You Know The City of Saskatoon work crews plan to rehabilitate 230 lane kilometres of roadways in Saskatoon this year. That brings the threeyear total to 650 lane kilometres, or almost the distance from Saskatoon to Banff. (Have a question for Mayor Atchison? Send it to email@example.com. Please put “mayor” in the subject line.)

ast week’s Saskatchewan Rider roster controversy was yet another black mark on the state of sports journalism in our province. Media here were looking back, when others — from outside the province — were breaking new ground. Who cared what Bo Levi Mitchell said? The story was whether he was right? • All this chaos by the creek — as the late great Leader-Post columnist Bob Hughes frequently wrote — is not what Riders CEO Craig Reynolds signed up for. Jim Hopson sure as heck retired at the right time. • From Bill Littlejohn: “With his 12th individual Olympic title, Michael Phelps tied a 2,168 year-old Olympic record held by Leonidas of Rhodes in 152 B.C. The video of Leonidas’ 12th title will be broadcast at 30 Rock NBC any time now.” • Torben Rolfsen, after the B.C. Lions were stuck in Montreal for an extra 14 hours after their game: “What an ordeal! Reminds me of that rugby team in the Andes.” • TC Chong, on all beach volleyball players wearing Nos. 1 or 2: “Have the other 97 numbers been retired?” • From Janice Hough: “Delta flights were so delayed this week in the U.S. they’ve been named the official airline of the NBC Olympics.” • Social media can be an SOB. The Postmedia columnist covering the opening of the Olympics wrote a fairly glowing review for the newspaper chain after criticizing the ceremony in a not-soglowing way on Twitter. Which was it? • I got tired really quickly of the Russian-bashing stories pouring out of
the Olympics. U.S. swimmer Lilly King owes Russian competitor Yulia Efimova an apology for splashing water in her face after a race. That’s something Donald Trump would do. • From Littlejohn: “Tim Tebow’s first baseball practice is in the books — it’s the first time anyone has ever seen a baseball wobble.” • From Rolfsen: “You know the NHL season’s too long when the most anticipated game before Christmas is an OilersJets alumni game.” • I wish Olympic archers used real bows and arrows, like the ones in old western movies. • Chong, on Olympic golf: Will Gary McCord show up and say the greens are Brazilian waxed?” • From Littlejohn: “Ricky Williams says that if pot were legal, he’d be in the Hall of Fame. The problem is he wouldn’t be able to remember which one.” • From @lastwordoncfl: “Chris Jones has added Penny Oleksiak to the Riders practice roster.” Why doesn’t he add the whole Olympic team? • Rolfsen, on Nike getting out of the golf equipment business: “I hope they put a little statue in their lobby of Elin swinging a club at the Escalade.” • Chong, on Tebow trying out for Major League Baseball: “As Bob Uecker would say, ‘Sorry, we don’t need any second base coaches.’” • I suspect those that criticized the Canadian Olympic outfits wear socks in their sandals. • From @bigheadsports: “Greg Oden’s girlfriend is pregnant. I can see the headlines now: “Woman gives birth to 27-year-old man.”

I won’t soon forget the 2017 Kia Sportage
ay back at the beginning of time for Kia, there was a TV ad for the Sportage that had the driver yelling YEEE HAAAA as he drove off into the swamps of Louisiana. That and the very basic price were the only two things about the Sportage that I can remember. However, I am not likely to forget much about the 2017 version. I looked forward to going out for a drive to see if there is some other way to put a grin on my face without actually getting into trouble. Autozone After one particularly fun afternoon, I came home to find that I had a note from Kia in my inbox. After the paranoia settled down, I read the email. Kia had been chosen by J.D. Powers (a market research firm in the United States and Canada) as the brand with the highest Initial Quality Rating from its customers last month. Yes, that means better than Lexus, better than Mercedes . . . better than anyone else. That means I had to figure out a way
The 2017 Kia Sportage received the highest quality rating from J.D. Powers. (Photo by Charles Renny) to validate such an award. After a bit of thinking, I figured I had to get the stuffy boring accountant that I married to come for a drive! She found the Kia a great car. The passenger seat adjusted easily and she was comfortable in a matter of seconds. Dash layout suited her and she proceeded to set her favourite stations on Sirius, FM and AM. Once she was done, I had my turn, with plenty of pre-set space left for my choices. Our only point of contention was over the HVAC system, because I like to set it
on automatic and go. She likes to control fan speed, air temperature and the vent direction. Eventually, I sat in shirtsleeves while she wore a light sweater (her side was in the shade). Later, we used the individual climate control portion of the system and after some adjustments, it worked equally well. The driver’s seat had the same adjustments as the passenger seat so getting comfortable took me very little time. Mirrors were decently large and had a great range of adjustment. Instruments were
large and easy to read. All switches and controls were readily at hand, although it did take a bit of getting used to where the EXACT location was. Getting into the back seat was reasonably easy as long as the front seat passengers didn’t hog all the space by having the seat all the way back. I found that I could get in and sit comfortably behind a seat set for someone my size, although I wouldn’t want to be in the back seat all the way to Vancouver from Saskatoon. (Cotinued on page 22)

But just like ABS systems automated braking as standard equipment did, the automated braking systems are beby the end of 2017. The U.S. National coming more economical to manufacture Highway Traffic Safety Administration has and are now appearing on many models. also announced that other manufacturers Toyota calls its automated braking such as Audi, BMW, Ford, General Mosystem AEB (Automatic Emergency Brak-
ing) and it will be the main technology in the Toyota Safety Sense and Lexus Safety System that are composed of several safety technologies such as lane departure alert and automatic high beam. These combined safety systems often use the same sensing components so grouping them together as a safety package makes sense. Toyota is actually offering two versions of their Safety Sense package: Safety Sense™ C and Safety Sense™ P. The Safety Sense™ C package combines camera and laser beam inputs to provide three safety technologies. The Pre-collision with vehicle detection feature uses both the camera and laser beam to detect a vehicle ahead. When the system determines there is a possibility of a collision, it will notify the driver with audio and visual alerts at vehicle speeds between 10 to 140 kph so the driver can take action. The system can provide additional braking force if the driver doesn’t apply enough brake. And if the driver does not
react, then the system can apply the brakes automatically to reduce the speed by approximately 30 kph. About 80 per cent of rear end collisions occur when vehicle relative speeds are between 10 and 80 kph, so the system will reduce the impact of a collision or possibly even prevent it if vehicle relative speeds are lower. Lane departure alert is the second part of the C package. It uses the camera to detect white and yellow lane markings. If the vehicle unintentionally departs from the lane, the system warns the driver with audio and visual alerts so the driver can steer the vehicle back to the centre of the lane. The third part of the C package is Automatic High Beam. The system uses the camera to detect the headlights and tail lights of other traffic and will switch the headlights between high and low beam automatically to give the driver the best possible vision at night.

Sportage engine wee, but powerful
(Cotinued from page 20) ower for this Sportage came from the optional 2.0-litre turbo engine with direct injection and this wee beast makes 237 horsepower and 260 ft.lb. of torque. There is a 2.4 litre normally aspirated four that produces 181 horsepower and 175 ft.lb. of torque that is standard in more basic trim levels than the one I drove. Amazingly, Kia says both engines can use regular fuel. Transmission choice is limited to a six-speed automatic. Only the ratios are changed depending on the motor choice. This test Sportage came with AWD, but Sportage can also be ordered with FWD only. As an AWD, the power is sent mainly to the front wheels and gets shuffled to the back when required. I did get to test an earlier Sportage with AWD at, get this, Homestead Motor
(Cotinued from page 20) afety Sense™ P is an enhancement on the C package. Safety Sense™ P adds millimetre-wave radar to the camera and laser sensors. This package is now able to detect pedestrians with camera recognition software as well as vehicles for improved safety. The technology also enables Toyota to add Dynamic Radar Cruise Control that will automatically maintain a set distance behind other vehicles on the highway when the cruise is on. The additional radar sensing also allows automatic emergency braking that will slow the vehicle up to 40 kph to reduce or prevent collisions. Another added feature is automatic steering correction for the lane departure system. If the vehicle departs from a lane unintentionally, the steering will provide a small amount of assist to help the driver steer back to the centre of the lane. How many times in your driving history have you made a lane change and shoulder-checked only to look forward again to find the vehicle in front of you has suddenly braked? This sequence alone has caused many rear-end collisions. This is something the automatic braking systems being introduced on many new vehicles will help to prevent. That’s good.
Speedway in Miami. My first thought was “who in their right mind introduces a new SUV at a racetrack?” The answer is Kia and I learned a lot about what the engineers did with the four-wheel independent suspension. A couple of years later, it seems as good if not better than then. Here in Saskatoon, we have plenty of low speed corners to give a suspension a good work out and most of these corners have some silt or puddles on them that give the AWD system a good work out. The best part of this AWD system is that you don’t notice it working. This is as seamless a system as you will find in much more expensive vehicles. The Sportage does have a bit of turbo lag that can be noticed on occasion, but other than that, I really enjoyed driving the Sportage . . . rain or shine.

For general passenger car use, the Blizzak Chris Welty, tire education specialist for WS80 replaces the previous WS70.

Welty said tire technology can be comOne of the changes is new rubber chemistry pared to computer technology. A solution with more silica in the rubber content. This
helps traction by keeping the rubber flexible as temperatures drop, but it isn’t as easy as just adding more silica in the mixing pot. Silica molecules tend to clump together, so Bridgestone research has developed a method of keeping the silica content spread throughout the tread material. Flexible rubber at low temperatures allows it to conform to the road or ice surface for better grip but it makes handling feel less precise, so the sipes (small cuts in the tire tread) are made with a 3D zigzag pattern so they support each other as cornering loads increase. This gives better steering response. Inside the rubber compound, small multi-cells are formed to remove water from between an icy surface and the tread rubber. Water on ice creates some of the slipperiest driving conditions, and Bridgestone research has developed a hydrophilic coating (it loves water!) for the multi-cells so they can trap water better. You won’t see the multi-cells on a new tire as the cells are inside the tread compound, so it takes a little tire wear for the multi-cells to have full effect. A new microtextures tread surface provides initial ice grip till the micro-cells can provide full benefit. For those who haven’t driven on winter tires, the improvement in cold weather traction is amazing. All-season and all-weather tires may work in the southern parts of the continent but in Canada, winter tires provide a huge traction advantage, and according to Welty, you should be installing them “as soon as you can see your breath in the air” – but it is never too late to benefit from their traction.
