In Flanders Fieldsthe History ews letters supposedly written by Bonfire and signed with a hoof print. behind the Famous Poem
On August 4, 1914, Britain declared war on Germany. Canada, as a member of the British Empire, was automatically at war, and its citizens from all across the land responded quickly. Within three weeks, 45,000 Canadians had rushed to join up. John McCrae was among them. He was appointed brigade-surgeon to the First Brigade of the Canadian Field Artillery with the rank of Major and second-in-command. Just before his departure, he wrote to a friend: It is a terrible state of affairs, and I am going because I think every bachelor, especially if he has experience of war, ought to go. I am really rather afraid, but more afraid to stay at home with my conscience. (Prescott. In Flanders
Fields: The Story of John McCrae, p. 77)

In April 1915, John McCrae was in the trenches near Ypres, Belgium, in the area traditionally called Flanders. Some of the heaviest fighting of the First World War took place there during that was known as the Second Battle of Ypres. On April 22, the Germans used deadly chlorine gas against Allied troops in a desperate attempt to break the stalemate. Despite the debilitating effects of the gas, Canadian soldiers fought relentlessly and held the line for another 16 days. In the trenches, John McCrae tended hundreds of wounded soldiers every day. He was surrounded by the dead and the dying. In a letter to his mother, he wrote of the Battle of Ypres.


behind it all was the constant background of the sights of the dead, the wounded, the maimed, and a terrible anxiety lest the line should give way.

(Prescott. In Flanders Fields: The Story of John McCrae, p. 98)

He took with him a horse named Bonfire, a gift from a friend. Later, John McCrae sent his young nieces and neph-

Yes, in fact there is and it just so happens to come from nature and double as a loy glycemic, low calorie sweetener. teeth is long-lasting and possibly permanent. Low decay rates persist even years after the trials have been completed. ferment xylitol in their metabolism, their growth is reduced. The number of acid-producing bacteria may fall as much as 90%. Since no acid is formed, the pH of saliva does not fall. Xylitol also raises the pH of saliva in the mouth. When pH is above 7, calcium and phosphate salts in saliva start to precipitate into those parts of enamel where they are lacking. For this reason, use of xylitol has demonstrated not only a dramatic reduction in new tooth decay, it also has shown the arrest and even some reversal of existing dental caries.

Nipawins Future Growth/Housing Needs

Nipawin is in the process of looking at future growth and suitable locations for growth to occur. With Nipawin being a hot spot for tourism, changes need to be made and growth of the current population must rise. The Tobin and Codette Lakes Tourism Destination Area Plan for 2012 identified over 100 action items and Nipawin has already archived a significant number of them locally. The Town currently has a great opportunity to expand and become one the most popular destinations in Saskatchewan. With prime real-estate surrounding Nipawin the possibilities areendless and Nipawin can become the force which drives the economy in the North East Region. Adequate housing is also on the agenda for Nipawin. An extensive study has been completed by D. James Leier and we are currently working diligently. Housing for Students, Seniors Residence, Affordable Housing, First Nations Housing, and Housing are all being looked at and plans are being developed so that Nipawin can advance in this strong Saskatchewan economy. It is time for Nipawin to be recognized as a vibrant community which is flourishing and on the up rise as a place to stay, visit, shop, and live. For this to occur, more adequate housing needs to be developed.
