Donna Jean Gerrier: Caring for aging parents a privilege
Cam Hutchinson Saskatoon Express onna Jean Gerrier’s father was witty and charming and practical, but he could be a handful. Gerrier spent six years in the 1990s providing end-of-life care for her parents — Isabelle and Albert Edward, who was better known as Punch. Isabelle had rheumatoid arthritis and osteoporosis. Punch had Parkinson’s and was Isabelle’s caregiver until he had a stroke. Punch’s stroke changed Gerrier’s life forever and became the subject of a book that is both light and weighty. The book’s title — Eggs on the Wall . . . For the Love of Family — resulted from from a day when Gerrier was nearing wit’s end. “It was a really, really trying day; everything went wrong that could have gone wrong,” she recalled recently from her Saskatoon home. “My father kept sliding down in his chair in his den, and I had picked him up and tried to straighten him out throughout the day.” Despite having Parkinson’s, Punch had never done this. “It was 5:30 and he had dinner and said, ‘Now I want to go to bed.’ I said, ‘Dad, it’s 5:30.’ It was one thing after another and I was behind in everything. So I said, ‘Dad, just wait until I get the dishes handled and whatever. And I said, ‘Don’t slide down again.’ I turned around and he slid down again. My dog was beside him. I thought, ‘He’s my dad so I can’t get after him. What can I do?’ “So anyway, I opened the fridge door to put something away and I saw some eggs. I took six eggs and I threw them against the wall. As the eggs flew, my dad’s head and my dog’s head turned in synch with the eggs. I went over to him to lift him up — he was heavy and I’m about 90 pounds. I said, ‘Dad, that’s what I had to do to gain my sanity today. What do you think of that?’ He looked up and said, ‘I don’t think you care about the price of eggs.’” Those eggs provided the catchy title of the book. The book is the story of a woman giving up her career and her studies of classical music in Toronto, and returning to her hometown of Virden, Manitoba, to care for her parents. It could be anyone from anywhere. The book happens to be about her experiences. Gerrier doesn’t look at what she did as special. She said it

It’s all About Your Beauty Protein
n every body - including yours collagen is the primary ‘structural protein.’ However, because of its importance for your skin it is also referred to as the ‘beauty protein’. In youthful skin collagen is abundant making up 75% of the dermis (the dermis is the layer of tissue below your skin). It contains your capillaries, nerve endings, sweat glands, and hair follicles, and is responsible for giving your skin it’s structure, firmness, and elasticity. Believe it or not, collagen starts to decline by the age of 20. By age 60 collagen production is reduced by 80%! Age-related decline in collagen production is met with yet another problem... collagen is constantly under attack by free radicals which damage and weaken the collagen matrix. The decline in your collagen production along with ongoing free radical damage results in significant changes in your skin including the appearance of aging, fine lines, furrows, roughness, and wrinkles. The dermis is an elastin matrix and is the source of your skin’s firmness, tone, elasticity and overall skin health and longevity.
The dermis also contains tiny blood vessels which deliver the active ingredients found in collagen (collagen peptides)which help to build and protect the skin’s matrix. This process improves your collagen strength, function, and makes it more resistant to free radical damage. And research shows that the collagen peptides will actually stimulate your cells to increase collagen production. So when you take collagen, your body actually begins to manufacture more collagen, helping to reduce and reverse wrinkling and skinaging! Because collagen is such a vital protein, it also helps ease joint pain and increase bone density. Naka Pro Extra Strength Collagen features 10,000 mg of high quality Peptan branded collagen!

Popularity of Chicago never wanes, producer says
rom his New York office, Barry Weissler, the savvy Broadway producer, was happy that this season’s tour of Chicago, the blockbuster musical, was going to open in Saskatoon. “We love Canada,” said the enthusiastic Weissler over the telephone. “We’ve had so many good tours with our productions in Canada. I think way back to 1982 when won our first Tony Award with Othello. We took it to Canada because Christopher Plummer was a Canadian actor. We once had a Chicago unit which we toured in Canada exclusively. And here we go again.” Weissler was the producer who had to put the stamp of approval on launching the tour at Saskatoon’s TCU Place on Nov. 24-25. People And from his TCU office, Gerard Cullen, the theatre sales manager, was ecstatic on how Saskatoon out-gunned some of its rival buildings to land the dates. “When the tour promoters looked at the North American tour, they realized they would rather avoid a launch in the United States on what was their Thanksgiving weekend. That is a customary strategy. They sent out emails about six weeks ago to venues in Western Canada, stretching from Thunder Bay to Victoria. They wanted a couple of dates,” said Cullen. “We believed we had some advantages. The really big stage played into their decision. They had confidence in the ability of our stage crew. I had always enjoyed a good working relationship with Gary McAvay, the agent for the tour. We both realized there would be extra costs because their people, and their vans, arrive four days early to do the setting TA111321 Tammy up.

“In the end, we reached an agreement which made sense for both of us. The good part for us is that we get a show in the building, which we might have ordinarily missed, and to be honest, even on short notice, I think we have a chance to sell out. And then the company heads for Denver.” The show was in Saskatoon once before, dating back to 2009, but Cullen thinks the popularity of Chicago never wanes. Weissler agrees. “We knew in the beginning Chicago was going to be a very popular show. I’m not sure I ever thought we’d go into our 21st year. We’re now the longest-running musical on Broadway. In the big picture, we still have some catching up to do when compared to records held by Phantom of the Opera. “The way I look at Chicago, it’s a great, timeless story
with universal appeal. You know the story about two women who go to jail after having eliminated someone. It’s a great story about the corruption of criminal justice and the concept of being a celebrity criminal. And if you’ve been watching the headlines lately, there’s a few of those in today’s news. “We’ve always been blessed with strong performers. We had Christie Brinkley play Roxie Hart one year, Melanie Griffith another time; Brooke Shields did the musical both in New York and the United Kingdom. I can’t really say that one Roxie was better than the others. They all gave Roxie a different spin.” As for that universal appeal, Weissler said they’ve done Chicago in the native languages in a dozen different countries. The French version was mounted in Montreal as well as in France. (Continued on page 15)

It took 11 years to get the book into print
Gerrier about half an hour to get her father comfortably back into his seat. “My mother at this point said, ‘Dear, I don’t like this tea; it’s not the flavour I have at home.’” The gas station attendant shook his head. “He said, ‘You women from Canada have more patience than I have ever seen. It must be the cold weather up there.’” Cold weather, but warm hearts. “I share the way I see the world today and how important it is to support each other and avoid isolation,” she said. Isabelle died in 1993 and Punch in 1997. Gerrier moved to Saskatoon in 2003 to take a job as a speech pathologist. Some will know her as a facilitator of a pet loss support group. Some are going to come to know her as an author. A friend in California and a minister there encouraged her to write the book. They heard both the humorous stories as well as her thoughts on care, women’s rights and animal rights. She resisted because, after all, she was a speech pathologist, not a writer. It turns out she is both. It took Gerrier 11 years to get the book to print. She was moving along nicely when she

Gerrier didn’t expect to return to her hometown to look after her parents. “My dream was always for them to come to me in my home, but it didn’t work that way. You just never know what your purpose in life is and I have sure learned that. “One of the hardest parts was I had no support from my parents’ friends. In fact one lady phoned me the first morning I was home and said, ‘You know, we don’t think you should be here looking after your mother and father. Our children wouldn’t do it and it’s not your responsibility.’ “I said, ‘Thank you so much for sharing, but right now my responsibility is to give my mother her breakfast.’ People would stop me on the street and say, ‘Why don’t you just put them in a home?’ “I just couldn’t. It was my call and I just hope our society will not look at nursing homes as the only answer. There are times when a nursing home is the best answer. In the book I say do all you can to the very best you can — that is enough.”

lost three years — and almost her life — to a car accident. She was driving on a gird road, hit loose gravel and was badly injured. Luckily, a teenage boy found her. Her left arm was amputated from the elbow at the scene. She wasn’t expected to live and if she did, she would be in a nursing home. “Following seven months in the hospital and two years in rehabilitation, I fought not being placed in a nursing home and won the battle. And I do owe that spunkiness to my parents who just ploughed ahead and kept positive.” She smiled when she talked about losing her arm. Her father might have said, “It could have been worse; you could have lost both.” Punch and his daughter travelled the world in his final years. They were arrested in Sweden, believed to be Russian spies on a cruise, saw the changing of the guard in Jolly Old England and made regular trips to New York for specialized treatment which helped her father’s condition. When they checked into a swanky hotel in London, a gift from a travel agent, Punch was his usual self. With rich folk mingling in the lobby, he asked his daughter if she had asked for the senior rate.

(Continued from page 1) here was the time when her father wanted to travel to California for a surgery that might improve his condition. So off Isabelle, Punch, Gerrier and her dog Sir Samwell went — California or bust. When they pulled into Las Vegas, Isabelle said she wanted tea in a china cup. They were at a full-serve gas station at the time. Meanwhile, Punch asked his daughter why she was at a full-service station. “He said, ‘That’s just like your generation; you don’t know the power of a nickel. Your mother and I wouldn’t be buying gas at a full-serve if we could get it cheaper at a self-serve because we went through the Depression.’ “So I said if I don’t get served pretty soon, I am going to be in a depression.” There was a Wendy’s next to the gas station, so Gerrier walked over to get lunch for her parents. When she came back, the vehicle was up on a hoist with her passengers in it. “When my dad saw me coming with the lunch he forgot the hoist was up and he went to open the car door and I just screamed.” The attendant lowered the car, but it took

Former NHL enforcer advocates for better head trauma diagnosis Cam Hutchinson Saskatoon Express tu Grimson had more than 200 fights during his 13-year National Hockey League career. With those fights came head blows. How those blows will impact the remainder of his life remains to be seen. “I feel good where I am today; I really do,” Grimson, now 52, said from his office in Nashville where he is a corporate lawyer. “I feel very optimistic that the injuries that I sustained will not affect me long-term. “Having said that, here I sit in my early 50s, with my 60s not that far out on the horizon, and I do have concerns.” Why wouldn’t he? The brains of a number of former NHL players have been tested for CTE (chronic traumatic encephalopathy). Among those diagnosed with CTE was Bob Probert’s brain. (CTE is a degenerative disease that is believed to be caused by repeated blows to the head. Symptoms include having problems with thinking and memory, personality changes, and behavioural
changes including aggression and depression.) Probert and Grimson were born days apart in 1965 and both had approximately 200 fights, including 12 or so against each other. Probert died of a heart attack in July 2010. Grimson said because Probert’s brain was diagnosed with CTE doesn’t mean he has it. “But it gets your attention,” he told the Toronto Star six years ago. Grimson will be in Saskatoon on Nov. 23 at TCU Place as guest speaker at the Saskatchewan Brain Injury Association’s gala. He said there will be two parts to his message. “The first is personal, the story of my background. It’s obviously chock-full of interesting, even amusing, hockey stories.

(Continued from page 6) And it evolves at some point into how head trauma has played a role in my life and has been a factor in my life and my health as well. “As much as anything I’d like to leave people with a few points that I believe (are) critical to improving the way we as a society deal with head trauma from both a diagnosis and a prevention point of view.” He said he talks more about the diagnosis and looks at it from two ways. “One is the professionals who work with and in concert with athletes. (They) can do a better job of removing somebody from active play when there is suspicion of traumatic brain injury. “No. 2 is the athlete himself,” he said. “I think we can do more to provide an atmosphere where athletes who sustain brain injury are quicker to self-report.” During Grimson’s NHL career, which stretched from 1988 to 2002, head injuries weren’t reported or diagnosed in the early days. He doesn’t blame health professionals; it’s just the way it was. “As a result, me and lots of players like me sustained these very serious head blows and we kind of shook it off and continued to play. Of equal concern was the next day or two days later when you would have another game and you were right back in the action. We all know now that giving the brain a chance to heal is critical.” Grimson says late in his career he knew something wasn’t right. “I was well into my 30s that I really started to experience symptoms that lasted beyond the day I sustained the blow to the head. When I was into my 36th, 37th year I was starting to notice I was having a headache longer than just the initial day and I was having nausea and these other symptoms that manifest. I started to grow quite a bit more concerned.” But he played on. Grimson suffered a concussion in the 29th game of the 2001-2002 season, he told the Toronto Star. His 30th game of that season would be his last. He knew something wasn’t right going into the game. When Sandy McCarthy of the New
York Rangers ran into Predators goalie Mike Dunham, Grimson knew he had to go to work. “I remember the fight,” he told the Star. “I was feeling pretty nauseous, heavy in the body, pressure in the head. But I was able to get through it.” The book was closed on a 729-game NHL career in which he served 2,113 penalty minutes. Grimson believes there is still a place in hockey for fighting. “I come down on the side of keeping it in the game. I think it is marginalized to the point where you don’t see a fight but every two or three games at best, and it really does serve a purpose.” He said it holds the opposition accountable and he said it is a long-proven tactic. “It’s amazing the impact (a fight) can have on the game.” And many fans want fighting, he said. “For the average and informed hockey fan I think it’s a pretty cool moment in a game. It’s something distinct that separates us from the other sports.” Grimson said there isn’t a place for guys like him in today’s NHL. “I think it has a lot to do with the changes in the rules and the fact the NHL is now a sport that operates with a salary cap. Every roster spot is so precious that you can’t really allocate a roster space to a person who is just going to play that role and that role specifically.” During his career, Grimson was nicknamed the Grim Reaper. He laughed when asked if it should be laid to rest. “It is not the kind of thing I have done anything to promote. I guess it goes back to the school of thought that you can’t really choose your own nickname; it’s the kind of thing that gets assigned to you. I have always kind of been indifferent, but it’s one of those monikers that has really taken hold.” With his career as a lawyer, it has been suggested he is now the Grim Reader. “That’s probably a more fitting nickname with my place in life; I’d agree with that,” he said with a laugh.

Oh, I see — we’re not indoctrinating enough Communism into the curriculum. Next up is an anecdote Eyre shares about a homework assignment brought home by her son, who is in Grade 8, which included notes from his teacher referring to European settlers as “colonialists, pillagers of the land who knew only buying and selling and didn’t respect Mother Earth.” Eyre was seemingly horrified at this broad, but perfectly accurate depiction of European settlers in early 20th century Saskatchewan, and allegedly found herself comforting her traumatized 13-year-old child about his ancestry. “He asked me if it was OK if he could write that he associated with his pioneer great, and great-great-grandparents…I said ‘yes, of course’…they had known poverty in Norway or Ukraine, or war in Germany, that they had come here and tilled the land that produced food for everybody and loved their families and tried to create whole, stable communities in this province, and had loved it here.” Please. I mean, I’ve freely admitted, even in this column space, that I struggle with the term “settler” and its relatively new negative connotation. All eight of my greatgrandparents were European immigrants to Saskatchewan, and I am grateful that their hard work building a homestead landed me where I am today. However, I’ve also grown to understand that my ancestors, along with thousands of other European immigrants (aka settlers), forcibly displaced Saskatchewan’s indigenous residents (to put it simply), creating a chain of negative events that still feeds the cycle of racism, poverty and lack of privilege (also put simply) plaguing our indigenous population today. And I feel really, really bad about that. If I could go back and undo my own good fortune so as not to destroy the lives of others I would, but I can’t. Therefore, I do my best to channel my regret through
reconciliation, which to me means educating myself, and making sure my kids are educated, about the true context of our personal history and its impact on Saskatchewan and Canada’s indigenous nations, and about the treaties. But who cares because English was Eyre’s Baba’s second language and the struggle is real, people. “My two grandmothers went off to school (in Saskatchewan) speaking only Norwegian and Ukrainian respectively, to a one-room schoolhouse,” Eyre explained. “And yet one of my grannies became a business owner, what’s known today as a female entrepreneur. The other was brilliant in math.” Oh, for the love of . . . are we seriously doing this again? Eyre went down this road last fall, sitting in a room full of Saskatchewan’s northern and indigenous residents who were trying, seemingly in vain, to explain to Eyre the reality of their circumstances. Her response, which she later defended in the legislature, was to compare their grandmothers’ history to that of her own, who, she says, didn’t have “lunch money” or “running water.” The implication, of course, being, “and look at me — I’m successful, highly educated, financially secure and ultimately very privileged … what’s your problem?” Just as, if not more, troubling is the fact that Eyre’s more recent speech was given as Saskatchewan’s minister of education, in which she is threatening treaty education in the curriculum and broadly and politically condemning teachers, administrators and her own ministry. Is it any wonder that the Saskatchewan Teachers’ Federation is running a campaign pushing their thousands of members to buy Sask. Party memberships to Pick a Premier? If it’s successful and enough teachers buy memberships, it is entirely feasible that they will do just that — and I promise you it won’t be the status quo.

Treasure Island extended due to demand for tickets
Shannon Boklaschuk Saskatoon Express ersephone Theatre’s latest show hasn’t even opened yet and it’s already been extended due to popular demand. Ken Ludwig’s Treasure Island, based on the acclaimed novel by Robert Louis Stevenson, is the theatre’s much-anticipated presentation for the holiday season. Originally scheduled to run from Nov. 22 to Dec. 6 at Remai Arts Centre, additional performances have been added from Dec. 7 to 10 as a result of the advance demand for tickets. That’s no surprise to Jenna Berenbaum. The University of Saskatchewan graduate is taking on the role of the story’s protagonist, Jim Hawkins, and she believes Treasure Island is “a wonderful adventure” for the whole family. “Although it’s not particularly a Christmas show, it’s very much about family and spirit and a journey that you can go on together with your family and friends,” she said in a recent interview. “So I think it will bring people together this holiday season.” In Treasure Island, Jim Hawkins is a 14-year-old boy who goes to sea and matures along the way. Many audience members will already be familiar with this classic coming-of-age tale, which includes the iconic character Long John Silver and other pirates. Berenbaum, a 24-year-old woman, did some research before tackling the role of a teen boy. For example, she watched movies featuring young males — such as Stand By Me and Hook — to better connect with the age and “physicality” of Jim Hawkins. The show’s “wonderful” costumes — and a haircut of two or three inches — also helped transform her, she said. “Once it all comes together with your character work, your costume, your hair and your other actors

and the environment you’re in, you sort of just dive into the world and become what it is you’re supposed to be. So, in this case, you become Jim Hawkins.” Berenbaum is a fan of the Jim Hawkins character, noting she enjoys “how he gets to go on a wonderful adventure and he meets wonderful people and he’s in new environments.” “And I get to do a lot of fun things. I get to have a sword fight, I get to shoot some guns and climb all over a ship and do a bunch of fun things,” she added. Berenbaum, who is impressed with Ludwig’s script, said she is happy to be “surrounded by other amazingly talented actors.” She also has praise for the “amazing set” the actors climb on while on stage – a moving pirate ship created by award-winning set designer Cameron Porteous. “It’ll be a great spectacle,” she said. Although Berenbaum was previously involved with the Persephone Youth Tour, Treasure Island marks her first main-stage show with the company. She said it “feels amazing” to take on that challenge. “It feels really good to be able to get out on that stage,” she said. Joining Berenbaum on stage are actors Joshua Beaudry (Squire Trelawney/Rathbone), Torien Cafferata (Justice Death), Chip Chuipka (Long John Silver/Jim’s Father), Carmen Grant (Dr. Livesy), Nathan Howe (Billy Bones/Bristol Sailor), Ed Mendez (Israel Hands/ Calico Jack), Phil Munson (Hazard/Tom Morgan), Jordie Richardson (George Merry), Danielle Spilchen (Ann Bonny) and Kevin Williamson (Captain Smollett/ Black Dog). In addition to Porteous, the creative team includes Sarah Rodgers (director), Ted Roberts (lighting designer), Bonnie Deakin (costume designer), Nathan Howe (sound designer), Laura Kennedy (stage manager) and Melanie Rogowski (assistant stage manager).

Saskatoon’s genre film festival aims to ‘push some boundaries’
Shannon Boklaschuk Saskatoon Express ohn Allison wants to give local movie buffs the opportunity to watch something different. As the founder and director of Saskatoon Fantastic Film Festival, Allison aims to program a diverse selection of genre films culled from some of the world’s best festivals. Now in its eighth year, the local festival will kick off on Nov. 15 at the Broadway Theatre with Tyler Macyntyre’s gory comedy horror Tragedy Girls, which first premiered at SXSW. It will close on Nov. 18 with Lowlife, which is being billed as director Ryan Prows’ “love letter to crime films from the ’90s.” Saskatoon Fantastic Film Festival is a genre festival, meaning people can expect to see horror, martial arts and action films, as well as cult movies. These aren’t movies viewers would typically see in the local theatres, said Allison. “We really like to push some boundaries,” he said. “So many people, when they think of horror movies, they just think of the ones that play down at the Cineplex and things like CT111301 Carol
My Friend Dahmer and Blade of the Immortal are two of the films that will be screened at the Fantastic Film Festival. (Photo Supplied) that — where it’s straight-up teen slasher or things like that. And we try to provide something different. We love the ones that kind of elevate genre films.” This year’s Saskatoon Fantastic Film Festival will showcase movies from around the world, including Canada, the U.S., Japan, Uganda, Estonia, Indonesia, Singapore, Turkey, Germany and South Korea. While the festival includes “cute and fun” movies, such as Dave Made a Maze, there are also some unexpected offerings, such as the anti-horror horror film The Honor Farm, said Allison. “It plays like you’re going to get this standard horror movie, but really there’s much more going on and it has a lot more to say,” he said. Another film that is likely to spark discussion is My Friend Dahmer, which tells the story of Jeffrey Dahmer when he was in high school. Dahmer became one of the world’s most notorious serial killers after murdering 17 men and boys in the American Midwest. While the movie may seem like a horror film, overall it isn’t one. Rather, the film
explores family and what drives someone to become like Dahmer, said Allison. “It’s this really powerful story. It’s really creepy; you’re dealing with Jeffrey Dahmer,” he said. “It has elements of feeling like a horror movie, but it’s not. This is not a straightup biopic or anything like that, but it’s just something more.” Some of the other films included in this year’s lineup are the Quebec-made French zombie film Les Affamés, the fun German action flick Plan B and Blade of the Immortal, the 100th film from Takashi Miike. The festival will show 17 feature movies during the course of four days Since its inception, Saskatoon Fantastic Film Festival — which is Saskatchewan’s only genre film festival — has screened more than 100 feature films and about 300 shorts, said Allison. “We tend to focus on the movies that don’t get a chance to be screened,” he said, noting the festival’s programmers spend more than six months looking for movies AS111314 Aaron and also attend events such as the Toronto In-
ternational Film Festival (TIFF) and Fantasia in Montreal. Saskatoon’s festival is noticed in other cities and Allison has partnerships and relationships with many of the other festivals in North America, he said. “We’ve helped them get movies; they’ve helped me get movies. We work together with them,” he said. “We might not have the quantities of some of the festivals, and we may take an extra few months or a little bit later to get some movies, but I’d put our lineup up against many of the genre festivals in bigger cities . . . . We work really hard to create a really great lineup that’s something different.” For more information about Saskatoon Fantastic Film Festival, including the festival schedule, go online to skfilmfest.com.

Other visitors likened the museum to facilities you would expect to see in much bigger cities, such as Toronto or New York, and I agree with that. Remai Modern is certainly spacious – it occupies nearly 130,000 square feet on four levels, and includes a state-of-the-art theatre – and the its riverbank views are gorgeous. While the building is certainly amazing, what’s most important to an art museum is the art. Remai Modern also exceeded my expectations in this area. (Continued on page 13)

seum of modern of art; I bet you won’t be disappointed. I, for one, can’t wait to see what else Remai Modern has in store for local, national and international art lovers alike. If Field Guide is any indication, it’s going to be good.

From the debut of the museum’s permanent collection of Picasso linocuts, to the familiar works of Lawren Harris and William Perehudoff, there is much to take in and admire. If I had to make a list of my top three favourite works currently on display in Remai Modern, in the top spot would be Walid Raad’s Letters to the Reader (2014), a sculptural installation that is comprised of laser-cut panels that are painted and beautifully lit. I was also very impressed with Tanya Lukin Linklater and Duane Linklater’s Determined by the river, which showcases work by Indigenous artists placed thoughtfully together in a raft. And I would be remiss not to mention Haegue Yang’s Four Times Sol LeWitt UpsideDown, Version Point to Point (2016-17), which features venetian blinds hanging in the museum’s main entrance and really makes a dramatic first impression. Remai Modern is built now; the question is, will the visitors come? I sure hope so. I encourage you to go down to the river and check out Canada’s mu-

Saskatoon boxer comes a long way in ring and life
Cam Hutchinson Saskatoon Express ayne Smith didn’t make a good first impression on Dennis Page. Page was at a pro boxing event in Calgary where Smith was fighting. “It was really wild,” Page, a longtime boxing coach, recalled. “He came out to bagpipe music and I thought, ‘What’s up with that brother. Coming out to bagpipe music?’ It was just bizarre.” Music aside, Page liked something about Smith. “I saw that he had some skills, but wasn’t utilizing those skills. I could see he had talent. He came out in the first round and almost stopped his opponent and it was all downhill after that,” Page said with a hearty laugh. “When I found out he was from Saskatoon, I said, ‘I have to meet that brother.’ When we came back to Saskatoon I sought him out and told him, ‘Dude, you have some talent, but the guys you’re working with don’t know how to bring your talent out. You’re doing the same thing everyone else is doing and you’re getting beat up. Come over and let me work with you.’” Smith’s path to Saskatoon wasn’t a happy one. He was born and raised in Newfoundland, where he says he wasn’t living a healthy lifestyle and was putting himself in vulnerable positions. There was James drinking, smoking weed and JW111301
a home where his parents were drinking and fighting. He was bullied and faced racism. “I was the small dark kid and was always getting picked on,” Smith said. “I wasn’t living a good life back then. My support was the people drinking and smoking weed. I was looking for acceptance and looking for someone to care.” Boxing was a way to find acceptance, although he maybe didn’t know it at the time. He joined a gym and started training, but his heart wasn’t always in it. “I was smoking weed before going to the gym and skipping out every third day and would take a couple of weeks off. I didn’t have a routine.” He made his way to Montreal as an amateur and then to North Dakota. He fought about 20 amateur fights — with an equal number of wins and losses —before making his pro debut in North Dakota in 2013. “I lost that fight. This guy was from California and was more technically sound than I was. I was his only win. That was a little discouraging when I saw that.” Page and Smith roared with laughter, with Smith futilely trying to claim the story was off the record. Smith scored his first professional win earlier this year here. Both he and Page laugh at that memory. “When I got the win I played the

(Photo by Cam Hutchinson) hotshot, ‘It’s all right, whatever.’ Dennis said, ‘Put your hands up, Man.’ When I put my hands up it was a good feeling. It was a feeling of achievement.” It was his first win after five pro losses. He has had two draws. “I’m happy I won but I have so much more to learn because I was always the street fighter and had no technique. You could hit me with the ring stool and I’d

still keep coming forward.” Before meeting Page, he was put in the ring to hold his own, but to lose. “Promoters must have heard I was hard headed and would give those guys good work. Now I’m the guy who is going to be looking for opponents. I’m not the opponent any more regardless of what they think.” (Continued on page 15)

Saskatoon’s Gary (Hocus Pocus) Kopas, the current Canadian cruiserweight champion, will headline the card with a fight against Saiduo Sahh of France. Page is promoting the event. “He’s not coming all that way to lose,” Smith said of Jorge Castro, his Mexican opponent. “I’m physically ready and it’s just sharpening up the skills for the next couple of weeks.” Page said Smith has come a long way since they started working together. It wasn’t
easy. Page said his program is difficult to learn. And the two of them would fight like cats and dogs in the beginning, he added. Why? “Because he was a knucklehead,” Page said with a laugh. “Everything I would ask him to do, he didn’t want to do it. I said, ‘Hey man, do you want to keep getting beat up?’ He was used to doing things a certain way and my question was ‘how is that working?’” Smith is taking a mental health and wellness course at the SIIT Saskatoon campus. His goal is to support vulnerable youth. “My future would more or less be to deter kids from going down the wrong path.” Tickets for Thunder on the Prairies are available on Ticketmaster.
Chicago producer has great track record
(Continued from page 4) eissler and his wife, Fran, started in show business as performers in a national touring company. He branched out into directing. “By combining the two crafts, I taught myself how to become a producer. I’ve been with Chicago since 1996. You know, we still have people in the company who have been with me just as long.” Weissler has an extraordinary track record as a producer. His shows have won multiple Tony awards. There was Othello back in 1982 and being able to hire Plummer and James Earl Jones was “a coup at the time.” But there were other coups. They won a Tony with Fiddler on the Roof, starring Topol; with Gypsy, starring Tyne Daly; with Annie Get Your Gun, starring Bernadette Peters; with La Cage Aux Folles in 2010; with Pippen in 2013 and of course, with Chicago, which took six categories in its 1996 conquest.

discovered him. Tommy Tune, the fresh-faced kid from Texas, came to him, looking for the role in The One and Only. Twiggy, Sandy Duncan and Lucie Arnaz also came to his shows. On the other side of the mix, he found work for stars like Joel Grey and Patrick Swayze and “a real moment of happiness came when I went to see if Anthony Quinn would play Zorba The Greek. He did.” He said Broadway is still healthy. His latest big hit has been Waitress, in its second year. “Same amount of theatres, but the demand for good shows is always high and more people are coming to theatres than ever before.” Starring in the Chicago cast, coming to Saskatoon, are Dylis Croman as Roxie and Terra C. MacLeod as Velma. The tour team is directed by David Hyslop and the choreographer is David Bushman.

It’s also a cornerstone of being a Blue Bombers fan. • Bad news for LiAngelo Ball: he and two other UCLA players were arrested for shoplifting in China. On the bright side, LiAngelo now leads the Ball family in steals. • A Hungarian circus is selling abstracts painted by their resident elephant, Sandra. Speaking of working for peanuts, it’s playoff time in the CFL.

To make her comfortable, they had it follow 33 cars. • Bombers RB Timothy Flanders, back from injury, was reportedly keen to perform for the home crowd.

C Chong unearthed this story from Roy Halladay’s Canadian Hall of Fame speech: In a road game, fireworks were being shot off every time the home team hit a homer. After giving up three home runs in the first couple of innings, the pitching coach came out. Halladay told him whatever he had to say to keep it to himself. The coach said he had nothing to say, but came out to give the guy time to reload the fireworks. • Torben Rolfsen, on The Flutie Brothers Band being announced as the official music act for the Grey Cup Tailgate Party: “Who’s opening for them? Geroy Simon and Garfunkel?” • Janice Hough, on Kevin Spacey entering a sex-addiction rehab program in Arizona: “Congrats to all those who had Nov. 6 in the pool.” • From @rougedalt’s Twitter account: “Auston Matthews missed his first game last week. (I heard) it’s for minor surgery to remove certain members of the media from his rectum.” I’m thinking that would be major surgery.
• From Rolfsen: “Another WrestleMania 34 bout announced: Jerry Jones versus Roger Goodell.” • Chong thanks Henny Youngman for this one: “What instructions did Trump give to his motorcade upon arrival in Peking? ‘Take me to Chinatown.’” • From the @jacktodd46: “It’s possible Patrick Roy was tougher than Carey Price. But Roy would chew out his grandmother’s eyeballs to win a hockey game.” • Are CFL and NFL fans two different groups of people? That’s about the only explanation I can think of for CFL playoff games being played at the same time as NFL games. • From Rolfsen: “The UN Security Council had an emergency meeting to discuss North Korea, and Toronto FC-Red Bulls.” • A tweet from the Riders’ outstanding defensive back Ed Gainey, after Alex Singleton was selected as the top defensive player in the West: “I guess tackles are better than turnovers.” I like Gainey, but it’s hard to overlook Singleton’s 123 tackles,

It doesn’t matter though; Marc Trestman is the easy winner. • From Hough: “I’m glad Justin Verlander got his World Series ring.

WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU JOIN A MATCHMAKING SERVICE Dear Lianne, I joined a matchmaking service three weeks ago and I still haven’t received a call with a match. I’m not sure what to do. They talked to me on the phone and sent me a questionnaire to complete. I paid them money by E-transfer over the phone and you would think I should be matched by now. They told me about all sorts of guys before I joined. Where are they all now? When I’m online dating I get matches every day. How do these things work? I wish I would gave joined Camelot Introductions. – Lauren
Dear Lauren, I would never suggest someone joins a matchmaking service where an in person interview is not conducted. I meet and match every one of my clients. I have support staff that works with me but the interviews and matching are consistently done by me. We verify their identity and do a criminal record check on each client. I do not accept advance payment from anyone. My fees are paid for at the interview if we decide to work together. If a company is not set up to take Visa, I would be very concerned. Business owners must qualify to accept credit cards. When working with a good matchmaker, you should expect it to take time for a
match to be presented. A good service will only match you with someone they see you having the potential of a relationship with. Online sends you many people who certainly have not been hand picked for you. Online is an artificial sense of fulfillment. I certainly hope you chose a company who has been in business for an extended period of time. Over the past 24 years as a matchmaker I have seen many people attempt to run a matchmaking service only to fail and disappoint their customers who have not only invested financially but emotionally as well. It is so important to understand the process and to know that it is not likely going to be
fast. Our clients call into a 24 hour number every three weeks until they are happily matched. Profiles are read to our clients on Monday and Tuesday evenings when there is a match. I would strongly suggest that you should have researched the company with The Better Business Bureau and online before joining their service. A matchmaker won’t please everyone but certainly many of them! Here’s hoping you chose a matchmaking service that is reputable with a proven track record but I am concerned that you may have made a poor choice. Feel free to call me at 306978-5683 and we can discuss this further.
