Patt Lenover -Adams Q. How long have Envision’s services been available to the community of Estevan? A. Since 1994 Q. How did you discover the need for Envision Counselling in Estevan? A. There were two groups, one was the Estevan Society Against Family Violence and the Weyburn committee and both groups worked fairly independently providing services for women in abusive relationships. The only services back then, in the early ‘80s and ‘90s, were mental health services, and women who are abused or men who are abused are not mentally ill, so they wanted to specialize services. Q. What is your role at Envision? A. Executive director Q. Why are the services Envision provides needed in the community? A. We know that one in four women are abused by their partners in Saskatchewan and that actually meets the Canadian average, and about 10 per cent of men, so we know there is a lot of people needing our service.

Q. What is Envision’s mission statement? A. It’s to provide services for any individuals that are abused and to help them explore their options and support their decisions.

Q. How much does Envision’s services cost? A. Nothing, we are government funded. Q. Have the people in Estevan been using Envision’s services? A. Most definitely. We actually have just finished our statistics for this year and we have a hundred more people than the year before. Q. What do Envision’s services provide people with? A. The core programming that we do is counselling and the second part would be providing groups for women predominately, and we provide a lot of out reach education, so they are going out in the communities, especially the rural communities, and providing different information sessions and information resources.

Rose Ditaranto Estevan Mercury Reporter

Why did you come here? Estevan of all places, really? How are you coping? Do you like it here? These are but just a few of the questions I receive when I tell the residents of Estevan that I am from Ontario. Why did I come here, really? Well I am interviewing you for a story, should that tip you off. Yes, people of Estevan it is no secret, I came here for my job; to be a reporter and do what I do best, bring you the news. Estevan of all places, really? What I don’t understand is, why those who ask me this question remain residing in Estevan? My question to you is why have you stayed? If you despise this city so greatly, then tell me why haven’t you left? I am certain those who live and breathe Estevan pride wouldn’t be sad to see you go; in fact I think they’d encourage it. How am I coping? Well just fine, thanks. I mean I have not ventured out into the ruins or a third world country, have I? Last time I checked I was in sunny Estevan, Sask., driving down Highway 18 and getting lost in never ending skies and watching as the cows graze and sheep lie. Rest assured, I am coping just fine. Actually I am better than fine, and you know why? Well, I’ll tell you. Last Saturday I was driving to Regina from the Bromhead-Torquay area and thought I saw a horse from a distance walking alongside the road. As I drove up closer, I noticed this was no regular horse, well at least from what I have seen. It turns out my horse was not a horse at all; it was a moose. I was ecstatic to say the very least, for I have never witnessed a moose before my very eyes. I want to be here and I want to experience everything this city and province have to offer. Do I like it here? Definitely, who wouldn’t want to be in cottage country 24 hours a day, 365 days a year? I say this with no disrespect and with no offence. I love the two hours I get back a day due to the time change and I love the calmness of the people, and I love the wildlife, and I love the skies and I love the farms. There you have it Estevan, I am here to stay, so next time you see me maybe we can focus on getting to know me for the person I am and not the stigma of the city.

In illustration of the importance of this year's speedway season opener we'd like to drive readers into the past to remember racers Art Lausch, Richard Baker, Bill Larrio, Harold Magrath, D.B. Smith, Tony Johner, George Linnen and Barry Sands as they raced their way into the hearts of the community in the 1959 season opener. Each week the Southeast Trader Express tells us what has happened recently, but we'll also give you a look in to the distant past.

Agreement a positive step

www.estevanmercury.ca

How far the agreement might go is of course to be determined, but the possibilities are compelling to say the least. There are two ways the deal can prove important. On one hand, it is a unified voice speaking for the region, and jointly promoting what there is to offer. That voice can be particularly important for international exports. The agreement is already sending the three provinces on a joint trade mission to Japan and China. All of us who live in Canada recognize that access to foreign markets for While there will be times each province will be competing for a single the things we produce - from wheat to pigs to potash and uranium - is required market, in general terms, combining resources on such missions simply makes to drive our economy. sense.

Preston Meyer’s death gives others hope while providing their families with a means to survive By Rose Ditaranto of The Mercury For the Meyer family, their son Preston’s death was seen as a light at the end of a tunnel for families facing the same tragedy. Six years after his passing, Preston lives. “It is a very emotional time for me and my family but we choose to honour the memory of our son by helping other families with a seriously ill child,” said his mother Lori Meyer. A child falling ill puts more than emotional strain on the life of a family, said Lori. “At least one parent must be away from work with the ill child and the rest of the family must try to carry on to the best of their ability. Mortgage payments, etc. still exist and so do the normal stresses of every day life.

“Our thought is to lessen the burden by assisting with medical and travel expenses,” said Lori. Preston’s Road Race takes place every year in Regina at the Wascana Centre and was started when Lori’s cousin, Melissa Randall began raising funds for Preston while he underwent treatments in Calgary. “Over the past six years, we’ve raised just over $100,000 and assisted 30 families. Last year, we raised approximately $20,000,” said Lori. One hundred per cent of the funds raised go directly to families with a seriously ill child. None of the monies go into advertising costs or administration fees. Lori said it means the world to her the amount of support and feedback she and her family have

received from the community of Estevan. “We couldn’t pay it forward without the generous people who have and do support Preston’s Road Race. It is very humbling to have family and friends support this great legacy to our son’s memory,” said Lori. The fundraiser has aided Lori in her grieving process because of the gratification they receive from those they have helped. Her husband, Darrell Meyer could not agree more. “Every family that we’ve helped has said the money is a godsend. People

have to travel to Calgary for treatments or Regina or whatever, so the money comes in handy. “It’s nice to pay it forward. We were helped when Preston was sick and we wanted to do something nice when Preston was gone to help other families,” said Darrell. In addition to the 30 Saskatchewan families Preston’s Road Race has assisted, this year there will be four recipients: Hailey Flaman , 2, of Moose Jaw; Thomas Fahlman,16, of Regina; Kyren Gronick, 6, of Regina and Ava Melnychuk, 3, of Regina.

Saskatoon fire leaves 24 families homeless PROVINCIAL Saskatoon firefighters, ambulance and other personnel responded to a fire at a 24-unit apartment building on 136 Avenue U South on Monday. No injuries were reported but few, if any, of the tenants had insurance on their belongings. For one resident, Regina Mitsuing, her material belongings don’t matter, so long as all the people and children were rescued. QuintDevelopmentCorp., owners of the building, arrived on scene later that day to provide the newly homeless tenants with cold drinks and food. ••• RCMP evacuated residents of the northern outskirts of Prince Albert after a forest fire erupted on Monday. RCMP responded to the scene of the fire near Highway 2 and Lempereur Road. The Prince Albert Fire Department, water bombers, Saskatchewan Environment staff and the Shellbrook fire department were also at the scene. Families to the west of the

road were not evacuated but were asked to be ready to leave if necessary. ••• Aterribly battered, broken, unrecognizable Winnipeg man was left for dead at a Regina hospital last month. Dustin LaFortune, 26, has left his family and the Regina police force questioning how this man, who has been described as hard-working and disappeared in Calgary at the beginning of March, ended up on life support April 16. LaFortune was left at the Regina hospital by a man who claimed to be his cousin, but family members have deemed that claim untrue. ••• Laura Enick, 74, and her husband Gerald, a Regina couple, are Saskatchewan’s newest millionaires. The couple’s single Quick Pick ticket matched all of the six numbers in Saturday’s Western 6-49 draw for $1 million. The pair purchased the ticket at the Shoppers Drug Mart at 303 Albert Street North as Gerald did his usual fitness

walk through the Northgate Mall. NATIONAL Canadian border officials witnessed their largest weapons bust as police seized 100 weapons from a 42-year-old man. Law enforcement agencies sais the weapons included a vicious and cruel selection of arms that created the California man’s private collection. The man was searched at the border after declaring to officials that he was trying to import two guns. When the sniffer dogs dug in their noses, they discovered batarang-type throwing knives, Chinese throwing stars, and sets of 12-inch knives embedded on gloves, which were comparable to the prosthetic blades of the comic-book character, Wolverine. The man was said to be moving to Ottawa, Ont. To join his wife. ••• Nathan Rehberg, one of two brothers charged with hate crimes in connection with a

cross burning in Nova Scotia, chose to be tried by a jury. Rehberg, 20, appeared in a Windsor courtroom onTuesday and will return June 9 to enter a plea. The defendant’s brother, Justin Rehberg,19, already entered his plea of not guilty and is set for trial on Oct.18. The burning took place in February outside the Popular Grove home of an interracial couple. The pair face charges of public incitement of hatred, criminal harassment, and uttering threats and mischief. INTERNATIONAL A member of the Cana-

dian Forces and five American troops were killed after their convoy was struck by a car driven by a Taliban suicide bomber and stocked full of explosives. In addition to the six soldiers, 12 Afghan civilians died, many on a bus caught in rush-hour traffic. The explosion wrecked 20 vehicles, including five SUVs in the NATO convoy, as well as scattered body parts and debris across the boulevard. The attack has been deemed the deadliest for NATO troops in the capital since September. ••• KidnappersinYemenhave released two Chinese engineers

who worked in the area. Governor of the Shabwa province, Ali Hassan alAhmadi, said the mediators reached an agreement with the kidnappers and that the two engineers were sent on their way back. The men worked for an oil firm that operated in the Shabwa province and were taken hostage by tribesmen last Sunday to aide in the tribesmen protest of the Yemeni government’s failure to take action when a policeman wounded a tribesmen at checkpoint. In Yemen, most kidnappings are committed by angry tribesmen who hope to “wangle concessions from the government.”

THE TRADER, FRIDAY, MAY 21 , 2010

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Your Aries self-esteem level is high, as is your impatience to see more action come your way in the workplace. Good news, Lamb: It could start to happen sooner than you think. TAURUS(April20toMay 20) Changing things now could upset a lot of people. But if you feel you’re acting because you believe it’s the right thing to do, others will understand and even come to support you. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A change of mind might not necessarily be a change of heart. You still want to go ahead with your plans, but you might see a betterwaytomakethemhappen. So go for it. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) An old business dispute could re-emerge and possibly affect upcoming negotiations. Consider opening up the situation to include suggestions from others on both sides of the issue. LEO(July23toAugust22) Some Leos and Leonas might find it somewhat difficult to get their ideas accepted or even considered. But that’s only for a while. Things will soon return to the way you like them. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) The pace seems to be slowing down from the hectic on-the-job run you recently enjoyed. But be assured that you’re still in the race to pick up new workplace-related goodies. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Seasonal changes create opportunities for busy Librans. However, be sure to balance your workload with your personal life so that you don’t overdo it on one end or the other. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) A former critic couldmakeasurpriseturnaround and become a supporter. But if your Scorpion sense suspects a questionablemotive,whoarethe rest of us to doubt it? S A G I T TA R I U S (November 22 to December 21) Data on a new project seems less than dependable. But it might turn out to be just the opposite. Consult with someone who knows how you might best be able to check it out.

FINAL WEEK!

CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Capricorneans face many decisions this week, with the Sea Goat’s kids rating high on the consideration scale, especially regarding vacations and upcoming school matters. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Showing that you care is what Aquarians do so well. It’s your very special skill. And this week, you’ll have several chances to show off that gift for a very special person. Good luck. PISCES (February 19 to March21)ThatstreakofPiscean wariness should serve you well this week should you be among those who come up against a slippery character offering a fishy deal with nothing to back it up. BORN THIS WEEK: You have an artist’s sense of how to help others see, as you do, the beautiful things about the world.

The Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lack of initiative leaves home buyersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; future hanging in the balance By Rose Ditaranto of The Mercury This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s realty favours those selling their homes, leaves buyers paying more for much less and forces potential renters to wait 10 to 12 months for new rental accommodations. The forecast for 2010 shows a slightly off-balance market unlike 2009,

which proved to be a promising year for buyers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is swinging in the other direction towards being a sellerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s market again. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all supply and demand. This time, a year ago, we probably had 100 properties available for sale in the city and we are at half that right now,â&#x20AC;? said Lynn Chipley of Century 21 Border Real Estate

Service. Lorna Pylychaty of Remax Progressive Realty, said the market is really busy right now and as a result, prices are high. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our prices would probably be comparable to Regina and Saskatoon, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a really good time right now to be selling. Buying, the prices are

high,â&#x20AC;? said Pylychaty. Pylychaty said the boom can be attributed to the oil and power and as the hustle and bustle continues, prices go up. H o w e v e r, C h i p l e y said, with a growing city comes tight accommodation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are still not as short as we were in the tightest of times in 2008, but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re tightening up. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are limited here, we havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t had an apartment building built here since the mid â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;80s, I think Casa Colina was the last apartment built and I would say that was in the 1980s,â&#x20AC;? said Chipley. The city wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t prepared for the rise in population, said Pylychaty. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I really donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think that we were prepared for the boom that we got. All of a sudden we got really crazy busy, and we just didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have any place to put everyone,â&#x20AC;? she sai d. Chipley said without the construction of apartment buildings,

the city is going to end up with a shortage of rental accommodation. However, Chipley said the city has come a long way since she arrived, 20 years ago, in the way of condominium development. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It started off with seniorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; condos, apartment style, then there were some townhouse styles that were done, and now thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sort of a combination of both happening,â&#x20AC;? said Chipley. These condos create entry level housing for residents and although it is not outrageously priced, it must not be confused with affordable housing, said Chipley. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to call it affordable because I think thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really misleading. Affordable housing is generally something to be honest, I think the government probably has to build, because theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re building at a loss and builders are not building for that purpose; builders are building for profit,â&#x20AC;? she said. An entry level home in Estevan ranges from

$200,000 to $250,000, added Chipley. In order for the city to meet the needs of its e x p a n d i n g r e s i d e n c y, they have to take action. â&#x20AC;&#x153;City Hall has to be very aggressive in land development and not afraid to spend some money to be ahead of the curve. I think that, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m on council, and I think I can say that we are just keeping up to demand. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probably time, if we really want to grow the city, that we get ahead of the curve because otherwise if there is someone who wants to come in and do a large development, w e â&#x20AC;&#x2122; r e n o t r e a d y, â&#x20AC;? s a i d Chipley. Pylychaty said she thinks the city has begun the transition. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think it is just a time and transition that needs to happen that we are in the process of. It may seem like baby steps but the City is definitely going forward I think, in what they are dong with the infrastructure,â&#x20AC;? she said.

‘An improved Estevan Motor Speedway proves to be best of its kind in surrounding area’ By Rose Ditaranto of The Mercury Estevan Motor Speedway’s first race of the season took a jump-start last Saturday despite a two-week delay due to weather conditions. “First of all, we saw the forecast so we had a meeting on Friday and we cancelled it early so we could let the racers that travel long distances know there wouldn’t be any races. “There were two things that were against us, one was the moisture and the other was the cool temperature,” said James Gustafson, speedway president. Gustafson said he is unsure if the cancelled race will be rescheduled because the speedway co-operates with five other tracks and the race schedule is alternated to accommodate each. However, Minot’s track is not yet race ready. “Minot is under construction right now so they’re not going to be running until sometime in August, so we’re trying to get as many races in before then to give these drivers a place to compete.” Gustafson said Estevan’s speedway gets racers from places like Minot, Crosby, Williston, Lampman, Weyburn, Medicine Hat, Bienfait, and surrounding area. This year, the speedway is offering not only its competitors and sponsors incentives, but its fans as well. “We’re offering our race fans the opportunity to buy pit passes and if they buy those pit passes and sign the waiver, they can go into the pit during the race if that’s

what they want to do. “The other thing is we are going to make an attempt to honour our sponsors at a higher level then we did in the past.” Pat Boyle, who has been at the speedway since its conception in 1999, said this year’s racers are being offered a $1000 payout for first place for the modified race. The incentive is new across North America and is something the speedway is excited about unleashing. Despite these new incentives, Boyle said the speedway is challenged in the way of getting people out to watch the races. “Our challenge is always to get more people out there; more people that will come an attend the event. “You can go to a race and say, ‘oh I love this or I’m never going back’, it’s that clear, we find,” said Boyle. The speedway offers the community the chance to have fun and is suited for the entire family with tickets at more than affordable prices. Adults are $12, students and seniors are $10, children ages seven to 12 are $5 and children under seven are admitted free of charge. “It’s good family entertainment, it’s reasonably inexpensive, when the weather co-operates it’s a wonderful way to spend an evening in Estevan, it’s just an excellent facility, one of the finest facilities anywhere,” said Boyle. Whether it is the facility itself, how it was built, the design, the seating or the visibility, “all the amenities that we have are almost unmatched in the whole area,”

said Boyle. “One of the things we’ve done over the years is a much improved sound system from when we started. We have better facilities for our lap counters and officials, we’ve added buildings out there for winter time storage and multi-purpose use during the summer, the electronic scoring was a big addition years ago; none of those things were there when we started,” added Boyle. This year the speedway will place emphasis on put-

ting great shows on a weekly basis rather than trying “to hit a home run” with these big shows, said Boyle.

“The big shows, well it’s nice to have them, there’s a lot more risk and potentially a lot more downside to having

501 - Death Notices/ Obituaries

Marie passed away peacefully with her family at her side on Wednesday, May 5, 2010 at Estevan Regional Nursing Home at the age of 90. She was born on March 26, 1920 on the Verhelst homestead near Meyronne, Sask. to Julia Debusschere and Bruno Verhelst. She attended school at Bonvouloir and Lafleche, Sask. until the age of 14 years when she was required to stay home and work on the farm - driving tractor, milking cows, chopping weeds in the field and stooking. Education of any form was important to her so she took secretarial and sewing courses by correspondence. On November 26, 1942, she married Joseph E. De Laet and together raised seven children - six boys and one girl. She was a member of the CWL since its founding in Benson and was very active in the 4-H Club. She took great pride in her flower and huge vegetable garden and won many awards in Estevan for her efforts. Her family and her faith were most important to her. She diligently kept tabs on the lives of all her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren over the years right up until her last week. She will be joyfully remembered by her children, Marcel, Benson, Sask.; Norman, Saskatoon, Sask.; Marius (Helena Pfisterer) Athasbasca, Alta.; Ron, Aldergrove, B.C.; Bernadette (Lewis) McClurg, Swan River, Man.; Richard, Cumming, Georgia; 11 grandchildren - Laurice (Dave) Sidloski, Kim (Troy) Souster, Erin De Laet (George St. Amant), Graham (Ruby) De Laet, Lisa (Ron) Vatamaniuck, Jason De Laet, Brayden De Laet, Mark McClurg, Kylie McClurg, Joshua De Laet, Chris De Laet; 10 great grandchildren; daughter-in-law, Alice De Laet; brother, Maurice Verhelst; brother-in-law Louis Boey; as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Marie was predeceased by her husband, Joseph; son, Lawrence; grandsons Curtis and Monty in infancy; great granddaughter Gabrielle in infancy; brother Gerard Verhelst; sisters Madeline Boey and Paula Verhelst. A Prayer Service was held on Friday, May 7, 2010 at 7:00 p.m. at Sacred Heart Roman Catholic Church, Benson, Sask. The Funeral Mass was celebrated on Saturday, May 8, 2010 at 10:30 a.m. at Sacred Heart Roman Catholic Church, Benson, Sask. by Rev. Peter Nijssen. Interment was at Sacred Heart Parish Cemetery. For those so wishing, donations may be made to the New Estevan Regional Nursing Home fund, c/o the Sun Country Health Region in Marie’s memory. Funeral arrangements were entrusted to Hall Funeral Services, Estevan. Messages of condolence may be forwarded to the family by visiting www.hallfuneralservices.ca

SOUTHEAST AGRINEWS, FRIDAY, MAY 21, 2010

Another season’s promise going into the ground By Norm Park Of The Mercury What are southeast Saskatchewan producers putting in the ground this spring? It appears as if canola is going to be a popular decision and there could be a lot of lentils cropping up later this year while peas are still a question mark. Those predictions, along with a few others, were offered by crop specialist Elaine Moats from the Ministry of Agriculture’s Weyburn office this past week. “Canola is going in because of prices and consistency,” she said. “Flax is questionable, but it should or could hold its own or even see a slight increase in spite of the disease questions that have been raised in Europe. But the U.S. is the bigger buyer, so flax will be around.” Moats said that southern Saskatchewan farmers will probably seed a lot of lentils this year since prices for that product have been strong for the past two years and there is a continuing demand coming from India. “Some farmers locked in good prices already and our area of the province is considered a good one for growing lentils and that area has expanded because of improvement in breeding that allows us to get those crops into the brown and black soil zones. Lentils usually do a good job in poorer, dryer soil zones like we have here and in the southwest, but now it looks like that zone can be stretched a bit,” Moats added. The agrologist said “now peas could be interesting to watch. I really don’t know which way they’re going around here. There

could be some last minute decisions made.” She was much more confident on where hard red spring wheat was going … and that was up, at the expense of durum wheat where the acreage will most assuredly be down this year, due largely to poorer prices. “There is a high inventory of durum around the world and Canada exports durum, so if we have a lot left over, that means everyone has a lot left over,” she said. There will also be a cutback in the acreages sewn to canary seed. That crop has been in expansion mode for the past two crop years, but not this time around. Again that’s due to carryover. In the area of other specialty crops, Moats said their office has received a number of calls inquiring about sunflowers. The problem here is locating varieties suitable to the area. There has been a shift in demand for sunflower oils and types and the sunflower growers have generally been able to make those changes without having to get into genetic modifications. No. 63A21 variety sunflowers provide the standard oils. The market has swung away from that lately while most companies in the sunflower seed business produce that variety. New varieties are being experimented with but the jury is still out as to whether they’ll work in this region. Moats noted that “the field days in the southeast might prove interesting in terms of sunflowers this year.” Soy beans are creating some interest with a few producers. The growing stages for them are shortening up, make it a more convincing crop to try. “We’ll probably see

some increased numbers with soy beans. The attraction is the fact that there is a world-wide market.” Field beans are another story though. “There is some challenge in growing them profitably. Other crops get

some crops generally seen as needing greenhouses to make them work, might find a home in local fields. If less expensive heat sources can be developed over time. If it is, then look for tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers in

The maturity and growing season is being affected by the volcano eruption. The ash is drifting over a very productive area. It brings cooler temperatures and that means delayed maturity.

better prices so field beans have been superseded lately by the others. They can also be a risky crop,” Moats said. Global events will bear down on some production this year. What started out as a pretty good year for crops around the world, has now gone sideways in some regions. The volcanic ash issue from Iceland is one factor that has switched some crop predictions from positive to negative. “The maturity and growing season is being affected by the volcano eruption. The ash is drifting over a very productive area. It brings cooler temperatures and that means delayed maturity. We saw it here a couple of decades ago when Mount St. Helens erupted and put a cloud over our North American crops,” said Moats. The organic industries will see some interesting developments this year, and into the future, she said as

Saskatchewan fields. “There are provincial greenhouse specialists working on possible partnerships in the future. They’ve looked into solar greenhouse systems. There is a lot of interest in developing them here. I’ve eaten some of these products and the taste is unbelievably good. It can be done. It is being done. Besides the heat, there is the problem of access to markets,” said Moats. “But from here, we could easily ship into Manitoba, central and northern Saskatchewan cost effectively,” she said. “But you know, so far we don’t have people who have greenhouse production as part of their culture. We have large dirt farms here. Once in awhile you’ll see an organic farmer try to pursue some greenhouse crops and usually greenhouse crops are organic. It becomes a matter of the way they manage their system. “They can control in-

sects with other insects, things like that, that other farmers don’t deal with. When you get into the subject of dwarf cherries or saskatoons for instance, there is a tremendous business there. The value of their crops exceed the value of the traditional crops per acre, but you need people to do it. It can be labour intensive come harvest and we’ve come to rely on bringing in crops using just a few people,” Moats said. The crop specialist then looked at moisture conditions in the southeast sector, noting that they were generally pretty good as seeding advanced at a good pace with a lot of the seed now in the ground. There were some variable conditions across the zone. One region received less than 1.5 inches of moisture since early April while others had received between two and three inches. “Seeding progress is in direct relation to the amount

Moose Jaw area and also into the land around Francis and Pangman and areas north of Highway 13. “As of May 11, 18 per cent of the provincial acreage that was going to be seeded, had seed in the ground. Since then the pace has quickened substantially.” Moats said on May 14 she expected that by the time Agri-news hit the readers, that mark would be well past the 20 per cent point overall and probably closer to onethird to one-half completed in the southeast. “Larger operations, new technologies allow producers to seed 24 hours a day now. They have newer, better lighting systems for the equipment. The risk is operator fatigue and safety. We just hope farmers will be careful. They shouldn’t be seeding or harvesting past the point of exhaustion because that’s when errors in judgment are made and accidents happen.”

Time to plan for winter wheat, is now Winter wheat crop decisions are best made in the spring. If local producers are planning to grow winter wheat, choosing the right spring crop can pay dividends for winter wheat crops this fall and now is the time to start the planning. If farmers are making their spring cropping plans now, they should aim to have the first fields seeded in the spring be the ones to precede winter wheat. Select early maturing varieties that produce adequate stubble for winter wheat to be direct seeded into, said crop specialists. One of the key building blocks to successful winter wheat production is establishing a healthy plant in the fall. Choosing a spring crop that will have stubble available between Aug. 20 and Sept. 15 for timely seeding of winter wheat can be the key, they said. This provides sufficient time for the plant to develop a strong and healthy crown prior to winter. The other key to winter wheat is survival. Winter survival depends on plant health as well as soil temperature. Though growers can’t change winter’s cold blast, seeding into stubble that catches adequate snow will insulate the plants and protect winter wheat during the coldest months. Canola,

mustard and cereal stubble are the best choices to precede a winter wheat crop. If the producer is a firsttime winter wheat grower, Ducks Unlimited Canada can help with planning decisions. “Success with our winter wheat crop is dependent on decisions you make throughout the year, not just in fall,” said Mark Akins, a DUC agrologist. “Now’s the time to decide which spring crop and variety should precede your winter wheat crop. Long time growers often have a Plan A and

Plan B for providing stubble for fall seeding. Plan your spring seeding dates, so you can increase stubble availability during Aug. 20 to Sept. 15. Choices you make this spring can provide optimal conditions for a successful winter wheat crop,” said Akins. Another important part of planning for winter wheat is selecting a field free of winter annual weeds. Winter annuals like flixweed, downy brome, Japanese brome and narrow-leaved hawk’s beard can be problematic in winter wheat because they compete with the crop due to their

similar life cycles. This can be overcome by either avoiding fields with winter annual problems or cleaning up the fields prior to fall seeding and paying close attention to fall and early spring weed control in the winter wheat crop. Help is available online for those planning a winter wheat crop. Visit wintercereals.ca and click on the Growing Winter Wheat logo and then the tools icon to find the Weatherman-ager, an online planning resource that will help producers plan spring seeding to produce stubble available for fall seeding.

SARM hails federal gov’t decision Rail freight cost hike to assist red meat industry questioned by NFU The red meat sector in Canada became more competitive in early March with the announcement by the federal government that new funding was being made available through the Slaughter Improvement Fund. The fund is receiving $25 million for plants that handle cattle older than 30 months. It costs more in Canada to slaughter these cattle than it does in the United States because of the specified risk material (SRM) disposal requirements. The Saskatchewan Association of Rural Municipalities said in a press release issued shortly after the announcement, that they were pleased the federal government is pursuing ways to make Canada’s livestock industry more competitive. “SARM has always taken the position that Canadian cattle producers must have a level playing field compared with their American counterparts. We are pleased that the government has recognized this problem and is addressing it,” said SARM president David Marit. “SRM requirements have impacted not only our producers but also our packing plants.” The federal government will also be investing $40 million in new technologies for dealing with SRM removal and disposal. This includes exploring potential revenue sources from SRM. “SARM has always maintained there must be some value-added component to SRM removal as there is in the United States. This will help move us in that direction,” said Marit.

NDP agriculture critic points to the bad seed Canada’s flax industry is now scrambling to repair damage to their export markets because of contamination by unapproved genetically engineered flax. The problem will reoccur as more genetically engineered crops are approved without rules that consider existing regulations in export markets and the potential negative impacts on trade, said New Democratic Party agriculture critic Alex Atamanenko who represents B.C.’s southern-interior riding. Atamanenko’s Bill C474 seeks to fill the regulatory gap which led to the rejection of Canadian flax shipments to Europe after widespread contamination by genetically engineered Triffid flax showed up that was unapproved in Canadian export markets. It calls for an analysis of potential harm to export markets to be conducted before the sale of any new genetically engineered seeds is permitted. Presently, Canadian approvals of new GE seeds are based on environmental and health assessments, but ignore the question of any potential harm to export markets.

Maureen Bostock, a spokeswoman for the National Farmers’ Union agreed, saying that C-474 is essential to protecting farmers from the release of GE seeds not regulated in export markets. “The recent damage to our flax export markets from GE contamination clearly illustrates the degree of risk,” said Bostock. “The government has an obligation to protect farmers from the interruption of markets and, by so doing, protect the economic interests of all Canadians.” “This bill would fill a gaping hole in Canada’s regulations. The government risks economic harm to farmers by permitting GE seeds that are not approved in our export markets,” said Lucy Sharratt, co-ordinator for the Canadian Biotechnology Action Network. “Bill C474 is immediately needed to address the foreseeable economic threat posed by GE alfalfa for example.” Monsanto has already been given the necessary approvals for GE alfalfa with the only variety registration left to go before it can be legally sold. “If GE alfalfa is com-

mercialized, it will only be a matter of time before GE contamination spreads to non-GE alfalfa and we begin to see serious economic consequences to Canadian farmers who grow for domestic and international markets,” said deputy agriculture critic Malcolm Allen. It is expected that Bill C-474 will likely come to a vote in Parliament this spring .

The Canadian Transportation Agency (CTA) announced in early May it would allow Canadian National and Canadian Pacific railways to increase grain transportation charges to

cap downward to account for increased railway productivity and efficiency and, hence, lower actual costs. The railways have eliminated their cabooses, torn up branch lines, adopted more fuel-efficient locomotives, cut the number of grain delivery points, and have driven the system more toward 50 and 100 car loading. All these moves have reduced railway costs. But because the federal government has refused to do a railway costing review, CN and CPR have been allowed to pocket all those efficiency gains, and they continued to do so, said the NFU. Boehm concluded by saying, “it is a one-way street; farmers pay more if railways’ costs go up, and there is no reduction in rates if railway costs go down as a result of system restructuring and efficiency gains.” Until 1992, the federal government conducted regular costing reviews, adjusting railway charges downward to reflect increasing efficiencies within the system and, thus, sharing a portion of efficiency with grain farmers. Quadrennial costing reviews and the sharing of efficiency gains reflected the reality that efficiency gains were created by investments by all system participants — railways, grain companies, governments and farmers, the NFU release said.

that is aimed at preventing CN from de-listing sidings and thus, eliminating producer car loading sites. Boehm said, “at the same time that the railways

- Terry Boehm farmers by seven per cent in the coming year. At the same time, CN is closing sidings, forcing farmers to haul grain further and both railways are tearing up branch lines, said the National Farmers Union. “By closing sidings, CN is effectively extinguishing farmers’ rights to load producer cars, a legislative right won by farmers many decades ago. If farmers don’t have a siding within a reasonable distance to use as a loading site, they are effectively prevented from loading producer cars and prevented from saving $1,000 to $2,000 per car in reduced handling and elevation fees,” said NFU president Terry Boehm. The NFU sent a letter May 3 to the CTA intervening in a Level of Service complaint launched by Cam Goff

are cutting service and foisting costs onto farmers, the railways are asking for, and receiving, government approval to raise freight rates.” The CTA announced on April 30 its approval of a seven per cent increase in the volume-related composite price index (VRCPI), used to establish Canadian National Railway and Canadian Pacific Railway revenue caps for the movement of Western Canadian grain. The VRCPI is essentially an inflation factor that reflects forecasted price changes for railway labour, fuel, material and capital purchases by CN and CPR. Currently, the railways and CTA adjust the revenue cap upward to account for changes in railway costs. But there is no mechanism in place to adjust the revenue
