Foreign worker program under the microscope – investigation underway By DEVIN WILGER N-R Writer The federal government has suspended the use of the temporary foreign worker program for the food service industry, pending investigation into alleged abuses of the system by restaurants in the country. Yorkton-Melville MP Gary Breitkreuz says that for the time being the measure will be limited to the food services sector, and will be in place until an investigation into the abuses is complete. He says that if any businesses are found to have abused the system, especially in regards to recruiting local employees there will be very serious consequences. A recent case in the area has been making

headlines. A restaurant employer in Weyburn has been accused of replacing long-time local employees with temporary foreign workers, and Breitkreuz says while this did initially prompt the investigation, it also revealed that the abuses of the system appeared to be more widespread than initially thought. Breitkreuz says that is why a closer look is necessary to see what is happening within the food services industry and how the program needs to change to prevent any further abuses. “We’ve got to let the investigation take place and take it from there, at this point I wouldn’t be able to predict what’s going to happen.” Continued on Page 2.

May 12 to the 17th is Spring Clean Up Week in the City of Yorkton. The annual program provides local residents the opportunity to clean up their properties and dispose of waste free of charge. The initiative encourages residents to help improve the image of the city says Environmental Services Director Michael Buchholzer and it’s been working well for the most part. “This program has been well received... with 1,200 participants in 2014,” says Buchholzer, adding landfill fees are waived during the week. There have a been a few issues however, causing the need for a few changes this year. “Unfortunately due to the overwhelming success it was difficult to monitor material entering the landfill, and possibly that was the cause of last year’s landfill fire.” A fire outbreak last year forced the closure of the landfill for two days and cost the city about $30,000. “To alleviate some of these problems we are modifying the program for this year and will reevaluate in 2015.”

RAISING MONEY – Residents of the Bentley recently got together to raise $1,500 for the Health Foundation, to be put towards a new hospital. George Arnold (center) says that the senior citizens are often the most frequent users of the hospital, so they know a new one is needed and want to support the project. Also pictured are Ross Fisher, Executive Director of the Health Foundation (left) and Jen Fitzpatrick, Executive Director of the Bentley (right).

Temporary Foreign Worker Con’t from Page 1. The program is still necessary, says Breitkreuz. He says it’s still necessary in the province and the country. He notes that he believes it will still be heavily used by the agriculture industry, for example, and that the goal right now is to iron out the glitches with the food services rules so abuses of the system can no longer take place. “This program was just to be for employers who just could not find anybody locally in order to fill the positions. It was not supposed to be an abuse of the labor market, where they could pay less to those that came in. I think there was evidence that was happening, and we had to put a hold on it.” He says one of the things that may need to happen is closer monitoring

of applications to ensure that abuses cannot take place into the future. He notes that if the charges are true, the temporary foreign workers themselves are also among the victims, as if the charges are true they have been taken advantage of as well. It has also put the people on the waiting list to join the program on hold until they know what is going on. That said, Breitkreuz says the program has been a valuable one, especially for agriculture and other sectors of the economy, and is optimistic that it can be fixed after the required investigations take place, and serve it’s purpose of filling hard to recruit for positions. “I think it’s a program that has worked in a lot of sectors, and it’s unfortunate that the abuse of it affects all those that really need it.”

Clinics for the Beginning Runner

Facts and Figures • More than 192,000 temporary foreign workers entered Canada in 2011. The overall total includes about 70,000 foreign workers whose employer required an LMO from HRSDC and close to 120,000 who did not require an LMO. • In 2011, more than 29,000 temporary foreign workers made the transition to permanent status.



LEARN TO RUN – Gearing up for the Health Foundation’s Charity Road Race, the Learn to Run clinics help people train and prepare for the 5km, 10km, and halfmarathon events, depending on their skill level.

Art of the Revolution gives a glimpse into Ukraine By DEVIN WILGER N-R Writer The upheaval in Ukraine began with protests by people upset by the then-current political regime, and a new exhibit at the Godfrey Dean Art Gallery gives the protester’s perspective on those events. Art of the Revolution collects 50 posters, curated by Prof. Bohdan Kordan from the Prairie Centre for the Study of Ukrainian Heritage at the University of Saskatchewan, as well as first hand accounts of what happened in the country, to give a look at the how art was used to rally people. Don Stein, Executive Director of the Godfrey Dean Art Gallery, says that the posters show the different ways in which people connect and gather to protest in the modern era. The images on the wall are also accompanied by images on screens showing the posters in context, and how they were put up around Kiev. The mix of styles on display, some reflecting modern graphic influence and others being more of a throwback to earlier protest designs reflects the direct and more personal means of producing the images. “The interesting thing about this particular public outpouring of civil disobedience is that a lot of the images were generated by personal printers at home. The graphics, design, and statements were shared electronically, so people could print 50 copies themselves and put them up all over the place... Each individual has the power of the printing press now, and that really played a part in how wide-spread the information was.” The show is very onesided, Stein says, focusing on the Ukrainian perspective on the events, but the combination of first person accounts and the posters give an account of why the protests began and

continued from that perspective. As art has always been a part of protest and revolution, the show’s perspective reflects the way a movement starts and gains traction via that imagery. Stein notes that the imagery chosen also shows how pop culture influences what imagery people identify with and use to inspire. “The world of popular culture in images is very global. Che Guevara with Ukrainian text, we know exactly what it means, that is such a strong symbol. At the same time, that is so culturally specific, that has

somehow transcended now, he has become the universal revolutionary.” The show has been travelling around the country, and Yorkton was one of the cities chosen because of the strong Ukrainian connection, Stein explains. Given that many people from the city are still connected to the Ukraine, the show gives a chance for them to see that Ukrainian take on the country’s current political upheaval. Art of a Revolution runs until May 24 at the Godfrey Dean Art Gallery.

It’s Rail Safety Week in Sask. One would think it would be strictly a matter of common sense but unfortunately accidents can, and do, happen, even right here in Yorkton. Trains are powerful machines yet for whatever reason, people sometimes fail to respect that fact. April 28 to May 4 is National Public Rail Safety Week and in light of that fact, the Government of Saskatchewan and the Saskatchewan Shortline Railway Association (SSRA) are urging all motorists and pedestrians to be alert and cautious near tracks and trains. “Rail transport is vital to our growing economy, but it is important to respect these massive and powerful machines,” says Regina Walsh Acres MLA Warren Steinley. “Rail safety is everyone’s responsibility – only cross railway tracks at authorized and marked crossings, and always obey the signs.” As part of its public education efforts, the province distributes Train Safety Activity Booklets to Grade 4 students at about 100 schools located near shortline rail lines each year in conjunction with National Public Rail Safety Week. The booklets are produced by the Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure in partnership with the SSRA. “Our shortlines are continuing to grow to keep up with the province’s exports, and so safety is more important than ever,” adds SSRA President Conrad Johnson. National Public Rail Safety Week is an initiative of Operation Lifesaver, which works with the rail industry and government partners to reduce crossing collisions and trespassing incidents along railways in communities across Canada. Further resources on railway safety can be found at Operation Lifesaver’s website at As the regulator of shortline rail in Saskatchewan, the Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure reviews safety management plans, provides reflective tape for rail signs and locomotives, and conducts routine safety inspections of locomotives and the province’s 1,100 provincially-regulated shortline crossings. Saskatchewan has 13 operational, privately-owned shortline railways on about 2,000 km of provincially-regulated track. Let’s do our part to ensure they operate safely not just this week but the entire year through!

Money can’t buy happiness, or can it? They say money can’t buy happiness but at this point in life, I’d sure be willing to put that saying to the test. A recent study in the UK suggests, as important as a big pay raise, employees may benefit just as much from the addition of certain activities into their lives. In fact, the study puts an actual dollar value on life’s ‘little pleasures’ from attending a sporting event, to dancing, to taking a trip to the local library. While I understand that down time is valuable and that we all need to enjoy a little recreation time to balance out our lives and to get a real sense of well being, is equating a dollar value to the activities we undertake really accurate or a consolation when it comes to adding a couple more zeros to the old pay cheque? Show me the money and I’LL decide what makes me happy. Visiting the library, dancing and going swimming can make people as happy as a $9,300/year pay rise, according to the official British government study. Hmmm... Researchers from the London School of Economics say that sports, culture and the arts have a significant impact on people’s happiness. They then assessed how much money it would take to give people a similar boost in their level of well being. They concluded that playing sport on a weekly basis is equivalent to being given an extra $2,100 a year on average. Involvement in the arts

through enjoying music, dance or plays is worth about $2,000 a year. The most beneficial activity, apparently, is taking part in dancing, worth $3,100 a year, closely followed by swimming which is worth $3,000 a year. Visiting libraries on a regubasis is worth $2,500 a Shannon Deveau lar year... I like reading as much as the next guy. I like swimming and dancing too, but do I like them to the tune of giving up a $10,000 a year pay raise? That’s debatable. “Anyone who likes to take part in sport or the arts will often say that it has an intrinsic benefit that they can’t always put into words,” says Sajid Javid, the new U.K. Culture Secretary. I can agree with that. “This research has some interesting findings that begin to show a wide variety of social benefits too, in education, health and general wellbeing. Through free access to museums and our continued funding of the arts, sport and culture the Government wants as many people as possible to reap the benefits of taking part.” NOW we may be onto something... FREE fun funded by the government! Seriously though, however you look at it, life is about affording and making time for the things that make us feel whole... whether that’s a walk in the park or a trip to the Dominican, it doesn’t take a costly study to rationalize that.

The way I see it... Column

A New Mexico landfill contains an urban legend As legends go, Atari’s mass dump of cartridges of their game E.T. was always a good one. It wasn’t just a big pile of garbage being placed in a New Mexico landfill, it was Atari burying any good will they had with consumers with a subpar product, and almost burying the video game industry with its mismanagement. The image of a large quantity of cartridges buried in the desert – numbers increasing as the years go by in order to make the dump more impressive – is something evocative and even amusing. It’s a cautionary tale, it’s dark comedy and as it turns out, it actually happened. Filmmakers have excavated the cartridges from their grave in New Mexico. As expected, the majority of the dump site consists of battered and crushed copies of the game adaptation of E.T., a game commonly regarded as one of the worst ever made, mostly because it’s as much a symbol as it is a hastily made adaptation of a popular film. There were also other games in there, including some which were not commonly regarded as outright terrible. From what I can gather from different sources, the mass dump of product wasn’t out of spite or shame, but the result of closing a warehouse filled with unsold product. The most unsold product just happened to be E.T. What we have is a rare case of an urban legend

Things I do with words... Column Devin Wilger actually being verified. It’s not ancient history, it only happened a little over thirty years ago, but since Atari had been shuffled through a variety of different owners and nobody thought to talk to the people who owned the landfill, it had taken on a mythical quality. The story was almost too good, the perfect ending of Atari’s dramatic rise and fall from relevance. It was not the actual end of Atari, the company still had many mistakes to make and even still technically exists, though not as the cultural force it once was, but it was the ending of the Atari era, as they briefly killed home gaming and were replaced by Nintendo in people’s living rooms.

It is actually nice to have such a legend being proven right, though the big fish story regarding the number of buried cartridges will likely have to be revised downward. There are many such stories out there, some of which are definitely made up, but that get circulated anyway for the same reasons. They are funny, for starters, they give people a sense that these major corporations are fallible, and they can often be used to explain why things fail. In this case, it is a warning against hubris, and how if a company makes a sub-par product, it will just be a burden and eventually thrown in the garbage. When I first heard of the plan to go to the desert and dig up copies of a game nobody actually wanted in the first place, I thought it was foolish. It’s going to be a lot of work to confirm the existence of something nobody wants anyway, after all. But now that the legend has been confirmed, I will admit to being glad. So many of these stories feel as though they can’t actually be true, they’re too perfect, they feel like fiction because it’s difficult to believe the real world would ever provide us with such an ideal tale. To learn the Atari story is not actually fake is great because there is finally a story of hubris and disaster that ends in the perfect manner, and now we can confirm that it was all the truth.

Your letter of the Week

No retirement crisis here

Taking the lead

To the Editor:

With talks to expand the Canada Pension Plan having stalled, the Ontario government has pledged to roll out its own provincial version. The impulse for a ‘big CPP’ hinges on the assumption that Canadians are too ignorant or misguided to plan for retirement themselves and the meddling hand of government bureaucrats can help them. In a new study published by the Fraser Institute, I question many of the assumptions behind the drive for ‘big CPP’ in Ontario and elsewhere. To begin, Canada’s current cohort of retirees aren’t facing a retirement income crisis. People are living longer, healthier and wealthier lives in retirement. The few pockets of poverty among seniors, such as single elderly women who have never worked, are best addressed by better targeting government benefits, not a wholesale expansion of the CPP. The crisis publicized by the pension ‘industry’ resides in the future and relies on assumptions and projections in models which are questionable. The model results are based on the traditional three pillars of Canada’s pension system – social security payments from government, the mandatory CPP, and voluntary pensions like RRSPs. This downplays the role of assets people hold in a fourth pillar outside the pension system, which total $8.6 trillion including real estate and various saving and investments, compared with $2.6 trillion held inside the pension system. And it completely ignores a largely undocumented but vital fifth pillar of support to retirees from family and friends; for example, 10 per cent of seniors live with their families, with unknown amounts of money and in-kind support flowing back and forth across generations, including inheritances. There are many problems with model-based extrapolations of pension incomes years in the

future. For example, models assume that the replacement rate of working income with pension income is fixed over time, when it more likely declines as older age curtails spending on travel and entertainment. Banks routinely exhort retirees to replace 70 per cent or more of their working income, when some experts find 50 per cent would be adequate for most. But the fundamental prob-

“Canadians are anything but the robotic automatons portrayed in models, doomed to endlessly repeat past patterns of behaviour...” lem with targeting replacement rates is that they are an opinion, not an observable fact. A prospective retiree can rationally choose to retire early, accepting a lower standard of living to spend more time pursuing leisure activities or with family. Another challenge with modelbased projections results from a growing number of older Canadians staying in the labour force. Nearly half of Canadians over the age of 55 are still in the labour force, including one quarter aged 65 to 69 (a near doubling of the rate over a short period). Canadians are increasingly working past what used to be the traditional (and often mandatory) age of retirement and this shift is playing havoc with forecasts of the labour force. This should give pause to anyone basing policy prescriptions that increase payroll taxes for virtually all working Canadians today on model simulations of the distant future. Every extra year elderly Canadians spend working generates more income

and reduces the time savings are withdrawn for retirement. However, a major problem with using models to simulate the future of retirement is the underlying assumption that prospective retirees don’t understand their financial circumstances. In models, Canadians march towards retirement either blissfully unaware of the lower standard of living waiting for them or utterly incapable of altering their behaviour by saving more or working longer in response to that knowledge. In real life, there’s ample evidence that Canadians alter their behaviour in response to a keen awareness of their circumstances and act decisively and rationally to control them. Some accept lower incomes in order to retire early while others work longer when circumstances dictate; they save less voluntarily when government increases mandatory saving; they save more in their own pension accounts when employer-based pension plan benefits erode; they elect to receive C/QPP benefits earlier or later than the traditional 65 years as they see fit; they shift consumption between the early and later stages of retirement; they save more in their later years to leave an inheritance; and they understand government will provide support as their health deteriorates in their final years. Canadians are anything but the robotic automatons portrayed in models, doomed to endlessly repeat past patterns of behaviour, incapable of learning and adapting their lifestyle to the changing world around them. They are actively involved in making the myriad of decisions that affect their pensions and their retirement. If there is an expanded role for government to play in the future retirement system, it’s filling in the few cracks through which pensioners can fall into poverty. Philip Cross, Troy Media Corp.

Education overhaul needed in Sask. To the Editor:

It has now been revealed in the Legislature the Premier’s wrong-headed Lean pet project isn’t just confined to health care. The education ministry is spending at least $1.2 million for Lean consultants, and that’s not even counting all the time and resources of teachers, staff and administration of school divisions. The government says its education plan is a kaizen Lean- plan. This is concerning for me as

well as many teachers, students and parents throughout the province because of the negative impact that lean has already had on our health system. As a part of this plan, the government is imposing a Lean clawback that will immediately rip funding out of our schools. The government is also putting Saskatchewan’s education system in a fiscal straitjacket by capping education funding after the next budget, locking in inadequacies. Today, classes are

complex, overcrowded and under-resourced – and there are far too few supports like educational assistants in those classrooms to ensure students have the one-on-one attention they deserve. Capping funding at an insufficient level will stick Saskatchewan kids with a status quo that is not good enough. The government is diverting education dollars away from our kids and into the pockets of Lean consultants. Meanwhile, the basics aren’t being met in

classrooms throughout the province and school divisions are being forced to make Lean cutbacks. Lean was invented in a car factory, and while years of those cars are being recalled, we only have one chance to get it right with Saskatchewan students. It’s past time this government start improving what really matters to students. Trent Wotherspoon, NDP Deputy Leader and Education critic.

Funding help is needed for vaccines

To the Editor:

Long thought by most people to belong to the bad old days of polio and smallpox, measles is making a resurgence in Canada due to complacency in the public about vaccinations. Almost daily we hear of new outbreaks. If the people of the world knew about this, I have no doubt they would slap us upside the head and ask us what our problem is. Because unlike us, many millions have no access to vaccines for themselves or their children,

and live in constant fear of diseases that could easily be prevented. Diseases we never have to think about. A few years ago at Muskoka, Prime Minister Harper pledged significant funding for Child and Maternal Health initiatives. The Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization (GAVI) is the premier global deliverer of vaccines throughout the world, and they are approaching funding renewal. As part of Muskoka Canada has been a key donor to GAVI,

and it’s critical that we renew or increase our funding share, especially as our aid levels are far below other OECD countries. In late may Mr. Harper will be hosting a Child and Maternal Health summit, and I hope he takes this opportunity to boost GAVI funding. For even if many of us turn our backs on vaccines, people around the world will gladly accept them. Nathaniel Poole, Victoria BC.

To the Editor: With an abundance of natural resources, and a bustling agriculture industry, trade is vital to the Saskatchewan economy. The province exports more products per capita than any other province, and recently overtook British Columbia to become the fourth largest exporting province in absolute terms. In 2013, the province posted a positive trade balance with not only China, India and Japan, but also the United States, which is all the more impressive considering Saskatchewan receives the vast majority of its imports from the U.S. But for this trade prosperity to continue, Saskatchewan needs a seat at the negotiating table, and to take a leading role in carving out new markets for itself. Luckily, much of the infrastructure that will be required is already in place. Within the province, the Saskatchewan Trade and Export Partnership (STEP) is a joint public-private institution with a mandate to promote exports from Saskatchewan and assist firms with taking their product internationally. STEP reached an agreement in 2010 with a Chinese organization called the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade (CCPIT), which gives firms in Saskatchewan greater access to markets in China. Alberta, British Columbia and Saskatchewan also established the Western Canada Trade and Investment Office in Shanghai in order to have a more direct presence in China. With the province taking such an active role in trade relations, exports to China have greatly increased, from $1.5 billion in 2010 to $2.6 billion in 2013. Saskatchewan’s top export to South Korea in 2011 was wheat - $195 million worth. But by 2013, wheat exports to South Korea had fallen 83 percent, to just $33 million. The good news is that Canada’s recently signed free trade agreement with South Korea will immediately lift many tariffs on agricultural products from Saskatchewan, which Premier Brad Wall has cited as one of the main contributors to the decrease in exports. But that’s not enough; there is still ground to be gained in many markets. Saskatchewan officials could wait for Canada to continue its aggressive push towards bilateral and regional trade agreements, but it’s ultimately in their interest to take a more active role. Alberta has offices in the U.S, China, Mexico, Germany, Taiwan, the United Kingdom, and more. The province has been able to successfully create new markets for itself and ensure its firms have every opportunity to grow their business globally. While Saskatchewan’s smaller size may not justify quite as large a program, India and Brazil are obvious choices for such a provincial initiative, given their large markets and recent willingness to trade. The potential gains to be made from improving relations with Bangladesh and Malaysia shouldn’t be discounted either. Leguminous vegetables and wheat, Saskatchewan’s top two exports to Bangladesh, are both on the rise. In 2012, exports of vegetables totalled $93 million. In 2013, that number jumped up to $224 million. With the potential for this number to rise even further, Bangladesh should be one of the top destinations for Saskatchewan’s new set of trade offices abroad. Trade is growing Saskatchewan’s economic and social profile not only across Canada, but throughout the world. The foundations, and the markets, are there. Now all that’s needed is the political will to execute such a plan. Trade is surging, and the markets are calling. Justin Bedi, Peter McCaffrey, Frontier Centre for Public Policy.

Making history with Victims Bill of Rights Victims of crime deserve to have a stronger, more effective voice in the criminal justice system. For far too long, the scales of justice tipped in favor of criminals and neglected those who had been affected by their crimes. That’s why the Government of Canada has made it a priority to rebalance those scales and help ensure the rights of victims are respected throughout the criminal justice system. An extensive consultation process led up to these reforms. In recent months, Justice Minister Peter MacKay travelled to every province and territory to hear from victims. Their valuable feedback on how the federal government could better address the needs of victims of crime

their views are considered at various stages of the criminal justice process. Finally, a victim’s right to restitution would also be guaranteed as part of this legislation. For certain offices, victims would have a right to seek financial compensation from their offender. This important legislation builds on our government’s strong record of supporting victims of crime. Previously, we delivered the Federal Victims Strategy and established a permanent advocate for victims through the Office of the Federal Ombudsman for Victims of Crime. We have also invested over $120 million into victim-oriented initiatives and provided over $10 million to Child Advocacy

Centres across the country to help young victims of crime. Canadians need to know that their justice system is working for them. Innocent victims of crime deserve to have clear, enforceable rights and protections in our criminal justice system. Through the Canadian Victims Bill of Rights, our government is making sure victims are treated with the respect and fairness that they deserve.

YFBTA Symposium gathers nature lovers

265 Bradbrooke Dr. Yorkton, Sask. S3N 3L3


The Yellowhead Flyway Birding Trail Association gathers nature-lovers in the region every year to meet and discuss topics surrounding the great outdoors. This year, the annual YFBTA Symposium was held in Yorkton at St. Gerard’s Hall. Paula Meyer, a member of the association, says that the goal of the symposium has an element of education to it, but is primarily a gathering of people with similar interests. The day overall is meant to get the city’s nature lovers together to meet, talk and connect, with the program meant to spur discussion and educate about different topics. The event had four speakers in Tanya Lawsom, Roger Nedoly, Myrna Pearman and James Edgar, covering

will help give them a stronger voice in Canada’s criminal justice system. As Prime Minister Stephen Harper noted, “Our Government wants victims of crime across this country to know that we have listened to their concerns and that we are squarely on their side.” The landmark Canadian Victims Bill of Rights will help deliver on this commitment by permanently entrenching the rights of victims into a single document at the federal level – a first in Canadian history. Our aim is to transform our justice system by providing statutory rights for victims of crime. Through this historic document, victims would be guaranteed the right to information, protection,

topics that included Saskatchewan’s cougar population, astronomy, bluebirds and forestry. Meyer says that the wide range of topics is to reflect the many differ-

Parliamentary Report Op-Ed Column by Garry Breitkreuz participation and restitution. Their right to information would ensure victims are made aware of available victim services and programs, as well as information relating to the investigation, prosecution and sentencing of the person who harmed them. Their right to protection would ensure the security and privacy of victims is considered at all stages of the criminal justice pro-

ent things the outdoors have to offer, and that their goal goes far beyond birds but covers the entire outdoors. The goal is also to give a platform for people to

cess – including measures to protect them from intimidation and retaliation – and provide victims with the ability to request their identity be protected from public disclosure.

talk about what they’re doing and share it with an interested audience. “We are birdwatchers, that’s true, but we’re really interested in nature... It’s nice to give people who do this research an opportunity to speak about what they do, to promote it.” The day overall was a good one, and Meyer says, with great speakers and a crowd that was excited to talk about what they’ve been seeing outside. The symposium is an annual one, but it goes to different towns in the area in order to reach different members, Meyer explains. Each year the goal is to highlight a different area and what it might have to offer for the region’s nature lovers. This is just one part of

the YFBTA’s mandate, as they also have school programs to get kids into nature as well as promoting nature trails throughout the region, Meyer concludes.

IT’S A WRAP – The Yorkton Sno-Riders have wrapped up activities for the season, celebrating a full winter of riding with a banquet and awards evening at the Yorkton Gun Club. Pictured above with club members Jason Popowich and Rick Bilous (clockwise, starting directly above) at the event are: Member of the Year, Darcy Fedyk (photo 1); Executive Member of the Year, Jolene Kindiak; Sno-Rider Family of the Year, Larry and Carla Harris and family; Dealer of the Year, King’s Sport Leisure & Marine; Business of the Year, Apperley Electric; and, last but not least, the Club Executive.

Old Time Jubilee slated


Don Messer’s Jubilee was a Canadian institution, and one of the top rated programs in the country’s history during its run in the 1960s. It may have been off the air for forty years, but Scott Woods is bringing it back with Scott Woods’ Old Time Jubilee, a tribute to the old show. Woods says that doing the show was inspired by people he has met since doing an earlier Don Messer tribute show, since he received many requests to revisit that music. The enduring popularity of the show makes sense, because it was one of the biggest things in Canada when it was on the air. “In 1964, they had higher ratings for Don Messer’s Jubilee than for Hockey Night in Canada, to put it in perspective for anybody who doesn’t know this iconic cultural figure.” The show will reunite Woods with people he played with in the earlier show. Tommy Leadbeater will sing the songs of Charlie Chamberlain and Bruce Timmins will be on guitar, playing the role Cecil McEachern did on the original, reunited from the earlier tribute. Also in the performance will be Lynda Lewis, singing the songs Marg Osborne sung, and Canadian Open Step Dance Champion Kyle Waymouth will also be joining the tour. Woods says that on or off stage the group is having a great time touring around the country together, and he does not have enough kind words to describe his fellow musicians. Woods emphasizes that is a tribute, not a recreation, and the goal is bring back the spirit of the original and respect what Messer and crew accomplished, while also bringing their own personality into the show as well. For example, Woods is bringing his own trick fiddling to the stage, with for-

ward flips and walking on barrels, something he says that Messer wouldn’t do but is a big part of what he does as a performer. He notes that they will be using screens to show images from the original, and says that if someone comes to the performance unfamiliar with Messer, by the end they will get an introduction to the show. “We’re not impersonating, we’re not imitating any of the characters from the Don Messer show. We’re rather just evoking the memories through the music and the names.” There are many memories of the original among people around the country, even though the show has been gone for decades. Woods believes that people want to reconnect with their fond memories, and the show allows them to connect back to a simpler time. For Woods himself, while too young to remember when the show was broadcast, he counts Messer as one of his three main influences for his own music. He notes that his dad would teach him and his siblings music in the style of Messer as a reward for practicing their lessons, and Messer’s style remains a big part of his own music as he was developing his own music. There are about 70 performances of the show, from P.E.I. to B.C. Woods says that he feels at home on the road, and has been touring with different shows and with fiddle contests since 1986. He says he’s been across the country so many times that he’s got friends wherever he is. “I guess it’s just in my DNA that I always travel and I always play music, and I don’t think I would know what else to do.” The show will take place at the Royal Canadian Legion on May 22 at 7 p.m. Tickets are $25 for adults, $10 for kids, and available at the Legion or by calling 1-855-SCOTT-WOODS.

THE NEWS REVIEW - Thursday, May 1, 2014 - Page 9A

The farmer is trained, moves on and settles in Submitted by Kaare Askildt, former Preeceville area farmer in training. This one of a series on getting settled in Hazel Dell. April 1st – a fool’s day! Celebrated, or better stated pranked around the world. I got curious as to how this tradition started, and did some research. The following is what I found, and it’s either true or I’ll be the fool! It started actually in the Roman era. They celebrated the festival of Hilaria, that sounds kind of hilarious, and it was held every March 25th, but was later moved to April 1st. Joseph Boskin a professor of history at Boston University explained that the practice began during the reign of Constantine, when a group of court jesters told the Roman emperor that they could do a better job of running the empire. The custom became an annual event, when a jester named Kugel was named emperor for one day and passed

an edict calling for absurdity on April 1st! In the UK, an April fool joke is revealed by shouting “April fool!” at the recipient, who becomes the “April fool.” In Scotland, April Fools’ Day is traditionally called Hunt-the-Gowk Day (“gowk” is Scottish for a cuckoo or a foolish person). The traditional prank is to ask someone to deliver a sealed message requesting help of some sort. In fact, the message reads “Dinna laugh, dinna smile. Hunt the gowk another mile.” In Poland April 1st is a day full of jokes; various hoaxes are prepared by people, media and even public institutions. Serious activities are usually avoided. This conviction is so strong that the anti-Turkish alliance with Leopold 1 which was signed on April 1st 1683 was backdated to March 31st 1683! In 1957, the BBC pulled a prank, known as the Swiss Spaghetti Harvest prank, where they broadcast a fake film of Swiss

farmers picking freshlygrown spaghetti. The BBC were later flooded with requests to purchase a spaghetti shrub, forcing them to declare the video as a prank on the news the next day. On April 1, 1976, the BBC pulled off yet another of its many April Fools’ Day pranks. Astronomer Sir Patrick Moore told listeners that at 9:47 a.m. that day, the temporary alignment of Pluto and Jupiter would cause a reduction in Earth’s gravity, allowing people to briefly levitate. Sure enough, at 9:48, hundreds of enthralled callers flooded the lines with reports that they had floated in the air. April Fools Day is called Aprilsnarr in Scandinavia. When a prank is pulled on a person, the Swedes will chant “april april din dumma sill, jag kan lura dig vart jag vill” (“April, April, you stupid herring, I can fool you where I want!”). Norwegians and Danes will chant Aprilsnarr I gamledar

buksa full av kaviar!” (April Fool in olden days pants full of caviar!”). Most Norwegian, Swedish and Danish news media outlets will publish only one false story on April 1st, for newspapers this will typically be a firstpage article but not the top headline. One such story was published in the morning edition of a major Oslo newspaper Aftenposten, who in 1950 stated that the government controlled liquor board had large amounts of red wine casks, but had run out of bottles, (which was not unrealistic so shortly after the war), and offered a special price to those that would bring their own containers to the liquor stores. The hardware stores quickly sold out of pails and buckets, and there were long lines of thirsty Norskies at the liquor outlets. A junior lawyer at a prominent law firm fell for the prank, and announced to his non-believer colleagues that he would go to the

liquor store with a couple of large pails and get them filled, only to find out that it was a hoax! However, the young lawyer bought enough bottles of wine, uncorked them and filled his pails. He ran back and stormed into the office putting the pails on his desk while suggesting that everybody better hurry up if they wanted to get in on a fantastic deal! The office emptied as they all scrambled for the door! Aprilsnarr! Colour television wasn’t widespread until 1966, but some Swedes armed with nylon stockings tried to get it four years earlier. They fell victim to a hoax by Sweden’s national TV station Sveriges Television, which trotted out a “technical expert” to explain on-air – in thoroughly technical terms – how a thinly stretched nylon screen in front of a television would bend light’s wavelengths and produce a colour image. The thousands who tried it learned quickly that

there was no such trick — and were out a pair of stockings to boot. Lars was staggering home after a night in the local bar. The Lutheran pastor saw him and offered to help him get home safely. As they approached the house, Lars asked the pastor to come inside for a moment. He explained, “I vant Lena to see who I have been out vith.” Ole and Lena were at the Art Museum and Lena wanted to take Ole’s picture. “Back up a bit Ole,” said Lena. So he did and knocked over a 2000 year old Ming Vase. “Oh my, oh my Ole, we have broken the vase! Uffda! The curator is not going to be happy!” The curator showed up and angrily shook his head. He said to Ole: “Good grief man, you have broken a Ming Vase! It was 2000 years old! What do you have to say for yourself?” Ole said: “Oh! Thank goodness! I thought it was brand new!”

EARLY WOES FOR TERRIERS - Yorkton Terriers Brady Norrish looks to beat a Winnipeg Blues player in the team’s 3-1 opening game defeat at the 2014 Western Canada Cup. Photo Credit: Western Canada Cup.

Terriers struggling early at WCC


After winning the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League title for the second straight season the Yorkton Terriers were reminded just how difficult the new path to the Royal Bank Cup is as the Western Canada Cup has shown the back to back league champions no love through the first week of round robin play. The only returning team in the five team tournament comprised of the league champions from the British Columbia Junior Hockey League, Alberta Junior Hockey League, Manitoba Junior Hockey League and the SJHL in addition to host city Dauphin, the Terriers have experienced arguably more ups and downs at this tournament than any of their opponents despite holding the experience edge. From starting goaltender Kale Thomson fighting a bought with the flu bug and sitting out the opening game of the tournament in a loss to the Winnipeg Blues to short whistles and poor penalty killing costing them a loss to the Spruce Grove Saints in overtime on Tuesday, life has not been easy for the Terriers who now face a must win game against the 3-0 Coquitlam Express to just stay alive in the tournament after posting a 1-2 record through three games. After losing just two games in the SJHL Playoffs it looked like Yorkton would be heading to Dauphin with momentum leading up to their Saturday afternoon matchup with the Winnipeg Blues to kick off the Western Canada Cup where they would have distinct home ice advantage with many Terriers fans making the short two hour trip to Dauphin after many missed out on last year’s WCC with the tournament taking place in far off Nanaimo. However disaster struck early for the Terriers as after

Trent Cassan submitted his lineup it was determined that Kale Thomson would be inactive and Riley Medves would be forced to make his first start since the final day of the regular season in goal for the Terriers in place of the SJHL Goaltender of the Year. Medves, who just won six of his 12 regular season starts, would be looking for some confidence boosting early in the game to get comfortable after the long layoff and would find no such opportunity as the Blues smelled blood in the water with the untested Medves in goal. Winnipeg would bombard the goalie whose last start was on March 1 in a three goal first period en route to a 3-1 victory over the shocked SJHL champions. It wasn’t the start the Terriers and head coach Trent Cassan wanted as just 2:01 into the first period the Blues Jake Stillwell would get the Blues on the board redirecting one past Medves, that gave the MJHL champs the 1-0 lead before their backup could gain much confidence between the posts. The Terriers would find a little bit of jump after the initial Stillwell tally and manufacture some good chances on goal but couldn’t beat Blues goalie Byron Spriggs who continued his phenomenal run of form from the Manitoba playoffs. With Spriggs preventing the Terriers from answering back with a quick equalizer, the Blues would add two more to end off the period, one just as the second powerplay expired off the stick of Ryan Bittner before Clay Tait would add another his 1st of the tournament to give the Blues a 3-0 lead after 20 minutes in a sudden and swift crash to earth for Yorkton. As expected, Yorkton came out flying in the second period and looked like they found out their legs a little more and then they were given a lifeline thanks to a Blues penalty that sent the Terriers on

the man advantage. On the powerplay, the Terriers would convert just 15 seconds into the man advantage as Riley Hunt would deflect home the Terriers first of the tournament to cut the deficit to 3-1. Yorkton would continue to battle for the rest of the second period, ultimately being unable to beat Spriggs who kept the score at a distance for the Blues who retained a multiple score edge with a 3-1 lead heading into the third period. In the 3rd period the Terriers had more opportunities to get back into the tournament opener but they would find struggles in being able to beat the Blues netminder Byron Spriggs who really settled in as the game got close to the final stretch in a quest to get an unexpected win for the Blues. Spriggs highlight was a huge save on Tyler Giebel with just over 11 minutes remaining in regulation which could’ve really turned around the game for Yorkton who were looking to get within a goal of the Blues to make things interesting in the third period. In the end goaltending and the first period shock of playing without their starter as well as conceding three goals to the Blues would prove to be the difference in a difficult opening game loss for the Terriers as they were unable to find a way in the game thanks to the masterful performance of Spriggs who saved 25 out of 26 shots in the win where he was undoubtedly the MVP for Winnipeg. For the Terriers their opening game would serve as one that got away from them as after their first period shock the team settled in and rallied around Medves, who in the end made 21 saves in two shutout periods of hockey following the 3-0 deficit that gave his team more than enough chances to get back into the game.

Rita Fetsch named Sask. Youth Player of the Year By CHASE RUTTIG N-R Writer One of Yorkton’s top young athletes earned major provincial recognition recently as Sacred Heart Saints and Yorkton United Football Club standout Rita Fetsch won Saskatchewan Soccer’s Youth Player of the Year award, capping off a year where she helped lead Sacred Heart to a long awaited girls’ 2A Saskatchewan High School Provincial title as well as lifitng the YUFC to another strong club season this winter during the indoor schedule. Fetsch didn’t just win the prestigious award, she beat out some very impressive company as Humboldt’s Joel Zimroz currently trains for the Vancouver Whitecaps of Major League Soccer as part of the Whitecaps Academy system. However to those around Yorkton’s footy scene Fetsch being recognized comes as no surprise as she has racked up quite the resume along with her teammates, with Fetsch being one of the most deadly scorers and playmakers in the province the Saints and YUFC girls programs have been consistently in the finals of almost all tournaments over the past years since Fetsch hit the high school ranks. In the past year Fetsch has helped guide her clubs to gold medals in both the Regina and Saskatoon Division Two Indoor tournaments, a gold medal in the Saskatoon Premier Division tournament, a Provincial Outdoor Division Two title and a high school Provincial championship that was won on the Saints home pitch after losing in last year’s finals. That type of success helped Fetsch win Player of the Year in Yorkton naturally, where Fetsch was on the day she was named Saskatchewan Youth Player of the Year, attending Yorkton’s banquet after a camp hosted by Desiree Scott that day in Yorkton. Fetsch knew she was nominated for the award, but opted to attend Yorkton’s year end banquet as the events were held over the same evening. In the end Fetsch was congratulated by the University of Regina’s head coach of the women’s program to congratulate her on an award she was surprised to win. “He said ‘Congratulations on winning the Player of the Year award’ and I thought that he was talking about the one that I won for Yorkton at the Yorkton banquet,” said Fetsch. “Then he said that he was there and I knew he wasn’t there (in Yorkton) so I asked him what he was talking about and he told me that I won the one for Saskatchewan as well.” “I definitely wasn’t expecting it,” Fetsch mentioned on winning

what is her highest individual honour tlo date in her quickly skyrocketing career on the pitch. “I knew I was nominated but I can’t say that I was expecting to win it. It was a nice surprise.” Fetsch has long bloodlines in the game as the Fetsch family are a local staple on YUFC teams, with brothers and sisters starring for the Saints as well as for the local club, in fact Rita has been coached by her mom for the Saints over the past few years where the two have enjoyed plenty of winning, ending their mother-daughter coach/player partnership this season with the ultimate storybook ending in winning the provincial title on the pitch where Fetsch has played most of her life at Sacred Heart. Rita credited her mom and family for her recent success, as well as showing her team first attitude and leadership in thanking her friends/teammates who have played with her in Yorkton forever. “My mom is definitely an inspiration. She’s taught me most of what I know about soccer and it has been special having her coach me,” said Fetsch. “I also have to credit the girls that I play with. You don’t put the ball in the net all by yourself and you don’t work the ball down the field alone. You win as a team and you lose as a team so I have to give a lot of credit to them. “I’ve been lucky enough to have the opportunity to play with a lot of quality teammates who are very talented girls in Yorkton such as Kendra Varjassy, Kristen Jonassen, Lauren Maier and Allison Berge just to name a few,” said Fetsch who pointed out in a team game like soccer having talented support is pivotal. “When you have those kind of people on your team it’s a lot easier to succeed and we have had a lot of success together. As for her plans after graduating, Fetsch naturally has both Saskatchewan programs looking to land the best recruit and young player in the province. As of now, she is weighing her options before making a decision. “Both the U of R and the U of S have contacted me and invited me for training camps,” said Fetsch, who mentioned she met with the Regina school already to visit the campus, “I just went to the U of R to do a meet and greet and train with the girls and sort out some academic stuff as well.” While she has met with the U of R and trained with team, the U of S has just entered the picture according to Fetsch who has had quite the whirlwind April. “I also just got an email from the U of S saying that they were also interested in me so I’m just trying to make decisions at this point.”

Overtime heartbreak puts Terriers in must win spot Cont. from Page 11.

A loss that would force the Terriers into a tough Sunday night game against host Dauphin in what would be the most anticipated game of the weekend as both sets of passionate local fans filled the arena for a game that served as a must win for both teams. Kale Thomson would also return to the goal for the Terriers after his one game absence due to the flu to give the Terriers even more motivation to go out and get back on track against the host Kings, who lost in five games to the Winnipeg Blues in the MJHL Playoffs prior to the WCC. After Dauphin went 1-0 to start the tournament with a 4-2 win over Spruce Grove it would also allow Yorkton to get back within the back after being the first team in the tournament to lose on Saturday afternoon. Yorkton got an inspired boost right off the bat as rookie AP call up Corwin Stevely would get on the board first for the Terriers with an early goal less than ten minutes in to give the Terriers a 1-0 lead. Stevely, the captain of the 2013/14 Yorkton Harvest Midget AAA team, would walk in and lift a snap wrist shot over the blocker of Kings goalie Michael Stilladis for the game’s first goal and his first of the Western Canada Cup. Moments later, Tayler Thompson would get his first of the tournament on a rebound that put Yorkton up 2-0 just like that in the opening period. The Kings wouldn’t go away and would get one goal on the board before the period expired as Dylan Butler would walk out from below the goal line and feed Chandler Irvin backdoor to cut Dauphin’s deficit to a 2-1 Terrier lead after Yorkton took the game to the hosts for much of the first period. In the second period the offensive fireworks would really start flying as after only three goals in the opening frame both teams combined for a total of nine goals in the second period. Riley Hunt started things off for Yorkton with his second power play goal of the tournament, finishing off a nice passing play by Tayler Thompson to give Yorkton a 3-1 lead and their second two goal lead of the night in Dauphin. The Terriers would then get their first three goal lead as sniper Brett Boehm would get his first goal of the WCC to make it 4-1. Down big nearing the midway point of the game, the host Kings wouldn’t go away as former Weyburn Red Wing Ryan Cooper’s long point shot would get through a crowd, beating Thomson to make it a 4-2 Terrier lead. Boehm would continue his hot second period shortly after to get the Terriers back in front by three using his elite wrist shot to get back on the board in a brewing barnburner of a period in Dauphin. Discipline and poor penalty killing would continue to come back to bite the Terriers in the

second period to Dauphin’s benefit, as the Kings would get another power play goal from Tanner Lomsnes on the doorstep in front of Thomson’s crease to make it 5-3. However the Terriers would get back in front by three goals as Boehm decided to continue the show in Dauphin by finishing his second period treble to put Yorkton up 6-3 and get the hats flying onto the ice with his third of the period to complete the hat trick. Down 6-3, Dauphin would start the final period on the powerplay with the intent on continuing to build what was a classic display of scoring prowess from both teams through 40 minutes. They did just that, making the game interesting and digging themselves back within two as Tanner Butler would get his third goal of the tournament to cut the Terriers lead to just 6-4. Not done there, the Kings would creep back to just one goal back 28 seconds later as former Flin Flon Bomber Dillion McCombie would cut the lead to 6-5 as things would begin to get a bit more nervous for the Terriers and their fans who both knew that going 0-2 in the opening weekend was not an option after getting two three goal leads in the second period. Kailum Gervais would answer the bell for Yorkton with the lead in danger as he took a well placed feed from Boehm to score a crucial insurance marker to put the Terriers in front 7-5 as the two players switched roles with Gervais being the finisher and the already three goal scorer being the facilitator on his fourth point of the night. After Tanner Lomsnes would add a late goal for Dauphin to make things interesting Gervais would be forced to take matters into his own hands one last time, scoring an empty netter to put the final mark on an 8-6 win in what was one of the highest scoring games in the Canadian Junior Hockey League postseason with a whopping 14 pucks hitting the netting on Sunday night in a win that the Terriers sorely needed after Thomson’s absence helped lead to a rough start. Gaining some momentum back in their pockets, Yorkton would be given the day off on Monday before taking on 0-2 Spruce Grove in what was a must win for both teams as the Saints would look to keep their hopes of playing in playoff play on the weekend alive with a win while the Terriers would look to avoid a round robin finale against undefeated Coquitlam being a must win as a victory over the winless AJHL representatives would ensure them of a top four finish and security heading into their final game. Boehm would continue his hot play for the Terriers in a big way to start the game as the leading regular season and playoff scorer for Yorkton would beat Saints netminder Kenny

WESTERN CANADA CUP - After a 1-2 start to round robin play the Yorkton Terriers tournament hopes rest on a finale with the undefeated Coquitlam Express in which a win would keep the team alive for the knockout round this weekend. Photo Credit: Western Canada Cup. Cameron with a laser of a slap shot to give the Saskatchewan boys a 1-0 lead in the early stages of the opening period. Late in the period the Saints would pounce on a powerplay opportunity late on in the opening frame as Parker Mackay would beat Kale Thomson to level the score after Yorkton worked hard to get on the front foot. In the second period the theme would continue as Yorkton would again grab the lead with the first goal of the period as Giebel would tip in a Devon McMullen shot from the blueline to give the Terriers a 2-1 lead before the officials would again hand the Saints some more opportunities on the powerplay that Spruce Grove were bound to convert. This time it was Cameron Hughes as the Saints would tie the game on two powerplay goals after Yorkton leads in the first two periods. After both goaltenders kept the game scoreless through the third period the Terriers would head to a familiar place as the game went to overtime, something that appeared to benefit Yorkton who were a whopping 7-1 in overtime in the SJHL Playoffs leading into a crucial sudden death with the Saints with both teams RBC Cup hosts as close to being on the line as possible in the second last game of the round robin for both teams. Once again penalties would prove to be the difference for the Terriers as the officials again put Spruce Grove on the powerplay, this time on a dubious tripping penalty on Boehm inside of the Saints zone and miles away from the Yorkton goal to put the AJHL champs on the powerplay. As expected the Saints made no mistake as a Carson Samoridny rocket would give Spruce Grove a win that the Terriers felt they deserved as they dominated play on even strength, but could not overcome a powerplay disadvantage that saw the Alberta team go to the man advantage an eyebrow raising seven times while Yorkton just got three man advantag-

es throughout the game. Postgame Terriers head coach Trent Cassan praised his team’s effort in his interview with GX94’s broadcast, but also had some reservations about the overtime penalty that was called on Boehm that Cassan felt was harsh luck even if some of his teams penalties were admittedly deserved on the evening. “It was a good effort, I think we did everything but win the hockey game,” says Cassan. “Obviously special teams were a huge factor, but the guys played hard right from the start, blocked a lot of shots and we got a great effort from Kale in goal.” On the postgame penalty kill that ultimately led to the Terriers defeat, Cassan kept his usual composure and class despite not being too pleased to see his team go down to 1-2 in the tournament on a ticky tack tripping call in an overtime frame where it was expected the whistles would be less active. “I mean what can you say about that call,” says Cassan. “It is 200 feet

away from our net and one hand on the stick, it is disappointing it had to come to that in overtime.” “I can understand some of the calls on us tonight were definitely deserving, but that was a hard one to swallow,” concluded Cassan. Needing a round robin finale win against the undefeated Coquitlam Express to keep their hopes of playing in the knockout round on the weekend alive the Terriers are now in a predicament that they did not envision themselves being in when the tournament began as the only returning team in the field. Playing arguably the best team in the tournament, Cassan is making the message clear that the Terriers will need to find a way to raise their play even more than they did during their hard luck OT defeat. “We obviously need a win now here to stay alive in the tournament and keep our hopes of seeing what we can do once the weekend starts,” says Cassan. “We are going to

have to be desperate.” If Yorkton does not win in their round robin finale it will conclude the careers of many successful longterm Terriers who have etched their names on the historic stories of the franchise. From the likes of captain Devon McMullen who has played in three SJHL Finals for the Terriers to goaltender Kale Thomson and forward Tayler Thompson who have logged many years for their hometown club a battle with Coquitlam will decide their Junior careers while the Express already have a place in the WCC Championship all but wrapped up with their undefeated record to date. If the Terriers are going to take one advantage into their round robin finale it is that they will be the team with everything on the line, after making a reputation out of always finding a way to keep the season alive over the past two seasons 60 minutes will decide whether or not the magical run of the defending SJHL champions sees another weekend.

Raptors bringing Canada’s basketball love to mainstream By now you surely have seen the Toronto Raptors magical 2013/14 season. Maybe you started paying attention when the team started to come together after the Rudy Gay trade to overtake first place in the Atlantic Division. Or maybe you gave them a chance when you saw DeMar DeRozan and Terrence Ross participated in the NBA All Star Weekend with DeRozan representing the East as an All Star and Ross’ putting down one of the best dunks in the contest on a through the legs alley-oop assisted by rapper Drake, who you may have been convinced to watch the Raptors by as the new “Global Ambassador” of the team. Perhaps you noticed when the Toronto Raptors didn’t fade down the stretch, continuing their exciting play and habit of providing memorable finishes into the spring as they became Atlantic Division champions for the first time since the 2006-07 season, outlasting the star studded Brooklyn Nets to win the crown. Or maybe you have finally been forced to give the Raptors respect during their first round series with those very Nets. A series where Toronto and the country have embraced the team like never before, even in the days when the team’s arguably greatest superstar in Vince Carter perhaps gave the team a larger profile south of the border but never quite built the type of passion surrounding the team’s successes and failures as we have seen through four games of the Eastern Conference playoffs. From the sold out Air Canada Centre being a cauldron of Canadian basketball passion despite the Raptors holding some of the league’s highest ticket prices, something that hasn’t stopped the hardcore Raptors faithful from enjoying themselves outside of the ACC much like Toronto Maple Leafs fans did last year when their team ended their long playoff streak. Making Maple Leaf Square their own, “Raptors Square” has been the most unique aspect of the NBA Playoffs from a fan’s perspective. While American cities have great NBA fanbases across the country in places that have earned their homecourt advantage reputation in Golden State and Oklahoma City, the spectacle of witnessing fans willing to watch the game outside of the arena and having more fun than anybody has helped to show that Canada’s love for the game of

Ruttig’s rants Column Chase Ruttig basketball is greater than our country would want you to believe. Basketball has always been the number two winter sport to hockey in Canada. There is no glory being a basketball player as a teenager in most Canadian cities with our country’s obsession with hockey, but thanks to nearly 20 years of NBA basketball in this country the game has exploded at the grassroots level to the point where our country is now becoming a pipeline for talent that is coveted south of the border. Sure, most of those players leave for American prep schools and almost assuredly leave to play in the NCAA but they have all helped grow Canada’s name on the big stage over the past few years. From Tristan Thompson to Anthony Bennett being highly touted draft picks in Cleveland to NCAA stars Andrew Wiggins and Nik Stauskas perhaps becoming Canada’s next superstar ballers much has already been made and said about our country’s rise as a growing basketball nation. Having college stars and potential NBA talents only does so much for Canada’s interest in the NBA however and the Raptors shrtcomings of recent years definitely did not help sell the game. Struggling to find an identity under Canadian head coach Jay Triano and with failures in forcing European talents into the roster with Andrea Bargnani, Hedo Turkoglu and Linas Klezia to name a few in a good hearted attempt to reach out to Toronto’s large melting point of European cultures, the Raptors decided to make a switch in philosophy heading into the 2013/14 season when they fired general manager Bryan Colangelo to

hire respected roster builder Masai Ujiri for what many expected to be a long term rebuild of a franchise that was seemingly doomed to always falling short in a weak Eastern Conference. Gone was Rudy Gay, a well documented volume shooter who stopped the Raptors ball movement and Bargnani whose reputation for being “soft” made his departure a welcome one. In came a package of role players in Grevis Vasquez and Patrick Patterson that filled in the Raptors rotation, but most importantly allowed fan favorites in Kyle Lowry, DeRozan, Ross, Amir Johnson and center Jonas Valanciuanas more playing time and freedom to turn the Raptors into their own identity. That identity has grown on the country, a take no prisoners leave everything on the floor attitude that fits how Canadian basketball is played across the country. Physical, never back down, team first play that you will find in Toronto gyms, in Saskatchewan high school basketball tournaments, or on outdoor courts in Vancouver. A brand of basketball tough enough to earn the respect of veteran superstars Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett and a type of passion that fans never felt from former starts in Damon Stoudamire, Vince Carter, Chris Bosh and especially Andrea Bargnani. With a potential classic series tied at 2-2 heading back to Toronto for Game Five it is clear that Canada finally has a team that captures the heart and passion of a nation’s love for a sport. Not just because they are “Canada’s Team” and they are all that we have, but because the Toronto Raptors are a symbol of Canadian basketball regardless of what nationality of players that are on the court. During a week where the NBA has adopted “We Are One” in light of disgraced racist Clippers owner Donald Sterling there is perhaps no team that embodies the concept of “oneness” than the Raptors. A team playing for an entire country of basketball fans. A country of immigrants and fans of all races. A country that love a game and a team that despite being the country’s only NBA team are still our best kept secret and one that is finally getting shared with the rest of our country with the perfect blend of players to do it. Regardless of how the series ends, Toronto (and Canada’s) love for the game has been heard.

Yorkton United U12’s win silver as “Team Germany” at WCP Cup By CHASE RUTTIG N-R Writer The Yorkton United Football Club (YUFC) tried something new this year when the club fielded a team from Yorkton to compete in the month-long World Cup Soccer Tournament in Regina. Not only did the YUFC boys try something new out in representing “Team Germany” at the WCP Cup, the Yorkton side added to the experience with a deep run in the tournament in their first attempt. With the help of YUFC coaches Andy Wyatt and Benno Looft, the Under 12 Boys Team Germany reached the WCP U-12 Final which took place at Regina’s EventPlex indoor soccer field on Saturday, April 26 where the boys earned a silver medal against Team England with a score of 3-1. Held in Regina each spring, the WCP Cup is an exciting event for mens’ and womens’ teams from Under 12 up to Adult. Before the tournament teams choose a country to represent based on the heritage of players and

coaches (Yorkton had 7 heritage players and two coaches with German heritage). There were 99 teams across all categories in this year’s tournament with as many as 1500 fans coming out to game, giving the young players a true big match atmopshere that led to an excited group who went into group play with a strong foot that helped garner some early momentum for Team Germany. Team Germany, in a pool of seven teams, reached the finals with a record of 4 wins and 2 losses good enough to come across undefeated england who went a perfect 6-0 in their seven group play fixtures. First half play was tight as expected in the final as both young teams managed to keep the other side scoreless through the opening sequences of the match before both teams had to settle for the Nil-nil draw after the first. Early in the second half Team Germany made their move as Jairus Pellatt opened the scoring from a kickin to put the Yorkton boys up 1-Nil over England.

Their lead was sadly shortlived as England answered back within a minute to tie the game 1-1. Despite a great team effort and creating lots of chances, Yorkton’s Team Germany could not put the ball in the net while England scored another two to make the final score 3-1, ending a hard fought month of football/soccer from the young team who had an

amazing experience at the tournament for the first time. Coach Andy Wyatt was very proud of the way his team played. “The boys were playing a tough team without fear and were having a lot of fun. It is the kind of soccer that we love to see these boys play.” Coach Benno Looft was also impressed with the level of play he saw in the boys. “Their

passes and the ideas behind the passes were excellent.” The entire game will be aired on Access Community Cable on the evening of May 1 for those who want to watch Team Germany play in the final and represent Yorkton in the event. YUFC Men’s player Steve DeLong also won honours at the WCP Cup, playing for Team

Ireland winning the Men’s Golden Boot with 14 goals. Other notables from the city included Nathan Ruff, Tye Doll and Robert Okeny representing Yorkton for Team Serbia in addition to Hannah Adam and Sarah Nelson representing Yorkton’s girls in the U-12 tournament, winning silver with Team Canada.

YORKTON BOYS WIN SILVER AT WCP CUP - Representing “Team Germany” at the yearly Regina tournament where clubs represent a country based on their heritage, Yorkton United FC’s U-12 team took Silver in a run to the tournament final where they fell short against England despite taking an early second half lead. Team Germany won four games in the month long tournament
