It took a couple of close games and even a bit of overtime magic, but R.D. Parker Collegiate's senior girls' basketball team beat all challengers at the AAA high school provincials in Winnipeg March 15-17 to claim the title as the top team in Manitoba for the third time in the past four years. The Trojans beat the University of Winnipeg Collegiate Wesmen 58-50 in overtime on St. Patrick's Day to claim the provincial championship. The teams were close through most of the game, tied at the end of the first and second quarters and RDPC behind by two to start the fourth, though they were down by as many as nine points in the third quarter.

Employers receiving awards for providing unpaid work experience placements to TSEP students included various departments with the Northern Regional Health Authority, Community Living Disability Services and other provincial government departments, Northern Spirit Manor, Best Western Hotel, the Boreal Discovery Centre, AMP Industries, Anything Grows, Days Inn & Suites, the YWCA, Salon Italia, Thompson Children’s World Daycare and the Thompson Citizen. Those recognized for providing paid work experience and sometimes permanent employment for TSEP participants included Burntwood Custom Builders, River View Restaurant, the Thompson Recycling Centre, Safeway and Quality Inn & Suites, which carved out a new job after one of the program’s participants proved unsuited for work as a housekeeper cleaning rooms. “We realized there were other tasks that she could do,” said Lagace. “She took over all the other

little tasks – the gym, the laundry, the stairwells, the vacuum cleaning those kind of things. She’s very happy, [Quality Inn manager] Donna [Wilson]’s happy, the establishment is happy, the coworkers all know how to work with her and she knows how to work with them and her parents are very happy.” An award was also presented to the Mood Disorders Association of Manitoba for making a presentation to program participants and recognition given to the Thompson Community Foundation for a grant that enabled the TSEP to equip a new space that it recently moved into just down the hall from the SMD office. “They gave us a significant grant that enabled us to buy new equipment for the classroom: a smart board, a Front Row to Go which is like an amplifier used for people who are hard of hearing so they can understand the classes better,” said Davidson. Other award recipients included Kyle Early, a Pathways program participant who received a wage-subsidized on-thejob training placement at the Mystery Lake Body Shop. “Kyle did some training

through the school year and he moved from high school straight into employment,” Davidson said. Jeremy Blacksmith received two awards, including one for dedication. “Jeremy has worked so hard and been so dedicated to learning employment skills and being able to get out there and into the workforce,” said Davidson. “We’re just so proud of you and how far you’ve come and all those skills you’ve learned.” One last award was given to a former TSEP participant who is now employed. Davidson urged partner employers to help spread the word about TSEP. “If you’ve got friends, other employers, let them know what the experience was like for you because I think more and more now people are starting to realize that we all have ability and everybody has the ability to work and be out in our community,” said Davidson. “Our community needs to be representative of that so thank you for all you do.” “Thank you for having open doors and letting us do what we need to do to show that our participants are important, they matter, they have a life and they’re capable,” said Lagace.

Strong majority of Manitobans support provincial government funding for rural and northern bus service

News • Page 3

Thompson Bus announces first employee

BY IAN GRAHAM

EDITOR@THOMPSONCITIZEN.NET

Nearly two-thirds of Manitobans are in favour of the provincial government supporting bus service outside of major cities, according to an Angus Reid poll. The poll found that 56 per cent of Canadians supported the concept of government stepping in to maintain rural and northern bus services, with 60 per cent of respondents supporting a federally funded rural bus service and 64 per cent supporting a provincially funded rural bus service. In Manitoba, 64 per cent of respondents were in favour of a provincially funded bus service and 56 per cent supported one subsidized by the federal government. Nationwide, support for government-funded bus service was actually higher in large cities – 63 per cent – than it was in small cities or suburbs (54 per cent) or rural areas and small towns (52 per cent). This may be due to support for government-subsidized bus service being higher among NDP supporters at 73 per cent and above 60 per cent for Liberal and other party voters compared to only 53 per cent for Conservative voters. Less than half of Conservative voters (48 per cent) support federal government-subsidized bus

Churchill gas prices skyrocket overnight BY ERIC WESTHAVER FLIN FLON REMINDER

Churchill held a record last month – the town had the highest gas prices in North America on July 19. According to a community update issued by the Town of Churchill on July 19, prices had increased from around $1.70 per litre to $2.54 per litre – almost a full dollar more per litre than the previous week and almost double the average gas price in Thompson. Prices in Vancouver, which has the highest price of any major Canadian city, averaged around $1.46 per litre on July 19. The increase is directly tied to the absence of a functioning rail line to Churchill. Since the rail line to the community was damaged last year, ships have been used to deliver fuel to the town. While discussions continue between current owners OmniTrax and a conglomerate of Northern Manitoba companies in order to buy and fix the line, the community remains cut off from ground-level transport. The Churchill and Region Economic Development Fund (CRED) – an

initiative maintained by Community Futures and supported by the federal government – issued a fuel subsidy of 43 cents per litre last year. The latest fuel shipment to the community was not

subject to a similar subsidy. When fuel from a previous shipment ran out, the switch to fuel from the newer, unsubsidized shipment led to the dramatic price surge. The town update specified

that an application for a similar subsidy was successful. While the fuel subsidy will cut prices down by 43 cents per litre, the remaining 41 cents of the increase has not been explained. The new fuel shipment

was stored at the Churchill Marine Tank Farm, which is owned by OmniTrax, the same company that owns the non-functioning rail line. In an interview with the Winnipeg Free Press,

David Daley, president of the Churchill Chamber of Commerce, said OmniTrax continued “to screw everyone in this town and gouge the poor residents of Churchill when we are at our lowest point.”

Research project examines youth attitudes about homelessness BY IAN GRAHAM

EDITOR@THOMPSONCITIZEN.NET

A research project led by two University of Manitoba social work faculty members will build on previous work by examining the attitudes of younger teens towards homelessness. “I’ve been working for a long time in homelessness in Thompson and after some years working on that many people were talking about that nothing had been done with youth,” said Bonnycastle, who previously worked with Maureen

ents or guardians,” said Bonnycastle. “We also know from other resources that parents are afraid that kids will release that information and then they will be apprehended.” Participation in the study wasn’t limited to those who have experienced homelessness and was elicited through a partnership with the School District of Mystery Lake. Lee Anne Deegan, Bonnycastle’s research partner, said that made it easier to get a bit of a cross-section of Thompson youth though participation numbers weren’t as high as they would have liked “I think it was four or five schools,” she said. “We had representation of youth from each of those schools. The schools did a great job. They circulated the information but I think there are multiple barriers there. First of all I think parents can be skeptical about allowing their children to participate in research. There’s all kinds of fears around that.” Getting youth inter-

ested was also a bit of a challenge, especially with focus groups occurring in mid-June. “It was a busy time of year that we did it, right at the end of the year,” she said, though work will continue throughout the summer in association with the Ma-Mow-WeTak Friendship Centre in preparation for a community forum to present and discuss results once the data is analyzed. “We’re hoping to build a group of youth who will take a leadership role in the community forum that we will hold in the fall,” said Deegan. The focus groups were seeking input from youth on their perceptions of homelessness and also to see if they share the same concerns as older youth and young adults regarding youth-oriented programs and activities in Thompson. “They may see homelessness,” said Deegan. “They may even be aware of friends or acquaintances that are not housed in the same way they are but

they don’t necessarily correlate that with homelessness.” Even if the youth who took part haven’t necessarily had any personal experience of homelessness, Bonnycastle says it’s an issue that affects everyone. “Thompson needs to work with the region because the problem is in the region, is in the north,” said Bonnycastle, who is now based in Winnipeg and says there are many homeless youth there who are originally from Northern Manitoba. Deegan says hearing from youth can help illuminate some of the reasons that younger people become homeless, which may result from leaving their hometown for education or because of conflicts with family members over issues like sexuality. “In the two years I’ve been here participating in various research projects that’s kind of what I hear from people,” Deegan says. “They’re coming here expecting to find support and safety if

they’re fleeing situations that are difficult in their home communities.” Bonnycastle said diverse perspectives are important because homelessness is a complex issue. “It’s not only about housing,” she says. “It’s about culture, it’s about the whole trauma that people have carried on, intergenerational trauma and the whole issues of colonization and poverty. When we talk between the north and the south it’s everything with land, related with natural resources and many other things.” Deegan said both she and Bonnycastle are primarily interested in community-based participatory research that actually leads to action. “The hope always I think with research is that, especially community-based research, is that it’s going to be useful to the community and the community can use that to help them define the issues and take action,” said Deegan. “Hopefully this will contribute to that.”

Four men from Easterville are wanted by police in connection with an assault that left another man with serious injuries. Chemawawin RCMP were alerted around 11 a.m. March 11 that a 24-year-old man was being taken to the Easterville nursing station for treatment of serious but non-life-threatening injuries. Investigation determined that four men entered the victim’s home earlier that morning, assaulting him and causing extensive damage before leaving. Police are asking for the public’s assistance in finding 29-year-old Mitchell Howard Ledoux, 27-year-old Steven Shane Klyne, 26-year-old Shawn Eric Umpherville and 20-year-old Nathan Walter Umpherville, all from Easterville, who are believed to have fled to Winnipeg.
