their change to the nickel-

says Burgess Quality Foods

E c o n o mi c De -
velopment Officer San-
dra Ingenmey says the
Minnedosa Community
Development Corporation
Board has successfully met
the recommendations of
its 2004 strategic plan. So
now what?
Ingenmey says that the
planning for the next few
years of work could take a
number of forms. She cau-
tions that planning activ-
ities needs to be balanced
with current responsibil-
ities of the of ce which in-
clude support for business
plan development, linking
of local entrepreneurs with
the supports, support and
training for local non proft
boards, tourism promo-
tion and summer worker
management.
Recently, the Beause-
jour Brokenhead De-
velopment Corporation
conducted a Regional Eco-
nomic Analysis Process
(REAP) in partnership
with Manitoba Agriculture
Food and Rural Iniatives
(MAFRI). Anna Wolonciej
is the marketing director
for the Corporation. My
job is to identify trends,
strengths in the regions,
competitive advantages.
And its my responsibility
for attracting interest to the
area, said Anna.
She brought together
the keystone people-
CEOs, grant monitors,
people from the banks,
education, and political
representatives for an in-
itial meeting on Novem-
ber 23rd. Over 55 people
attended. Now theyre in
stage two of their REAP
where theyve had a separ-
ate meeting about retain-
ing high school students.
She says with the an-
alysis they are seeing, they
have an aging population,
a strong need for health-
care workers, and hous-
ing. So they are looking at
training opportunities for
young people; perhaps to-
wards working in health-
care. Te report shows
the range of businesses,
skilled trades, manufactur-
ing present, but also the
gaps, so she has a sense of
what kinds of enterprises
to encourage, and when
it comes to immigration,
what skills to attract.
While the overall an-
alysis included Springfeld,
she took the document
and separated out the in-
formation for Beausejour
Brokenhead for a more
tailored idea. Now, she
says, she has a blueprint
for her job going forward;
and one that the com-
munity has participated in
and supports. Te process
takes time, and depends
on the engagement of the
community, but she main-
tains, I would encourage
other people to do this. It
builds positive spirit. Its
about team work, and it
provides an excellent base
with which to set up and
execute a strategic plan.
When asked why she
relied on the province for
the service, rather than
employing a consultant,
Wolociej was enthusias-
tic about their decision.
We were looking for a
way to do something like
this anyway. We discussed
what we were looking for
with MAFRI. Teir specifc
knowledge of statistics,
regional economics and
business development
and what they were ofer-
ing was perfect. Plus, the
service is free. We were the
frst group in Eastman to
sign up.
Ruth Mealy of MAFRI
says that REAPs are really
about regions, and depend
on participation from a
range of community mem-
bers. REAPs have been
completed by other com-
munities including Swan
Valley RISE Inc., Asessippi
Parkland Economic De-
velopment, East Escarp-
ment- McCreary Econom-
ic Development Board,
and Dauphin Economic
Development & Tourism.

R
ecent physician re-
cruiting eforts have
paid of for Minnedosa.
According to Penny Gil-
son, Chief Executive Of -
cer of the Prairie Mountain
Regional Health Authority,
Dr. Liz Lysack will be com-
ing to practice full time in
Minnedosa in July. Dr. Ly-
sack comes from the rural
Alberta family medicine
residency program.
Tis addition is un-
likely to create a surplus of
service in the region. While
no formal notice has been
ofered, Gilson reports
that up to two doctors at
the Minnedosa clinic will
discontinue their prac-
tice in the near future. Te
Minnedosa Clinic detailed
that while two doctors
thinking of making chang-
es, one is more certain than
the other. Te Clinic said
they would make a formal
announcement when f-
nal decisions have been
made. Says Gilson: Once
we know formally of physi-
cians leaving Minnedosa,
well be working with the
existing physicians know-
ing that Dr. Lysack is com-
ing in July. Well be work-
ing to sustain services in
the short term while we
determine if physicians
need to be placed there.
Tose interested to
sign up under Dr. Lysack`s
care are asked to hold their
horses. Gilson says this will
be an option closer to the
summertime.
Keeping Minnedosa
in good supply of medical
practitioners is a matter
of ongoing recruitment,
communication, and bal-
ance. Recruitment hap-
pens in a number of ways,
including:
* Te health author-
ity keeps track of students
from rural communities
who go into medicine, and
encourages them to prac-
tice in their home commu-
nities when they graduate.
* Te health author-
ity is in regular contact
with education programs
to identify other students
who may be interested in
practicing in a rural set-
ting.
* Practitioners from
rural communities who
are practicing elsewhere
are given the option of
returning to their home
community, at least for
short periods of time.
* Finally, internation-
al medical graduates are
recruited through a provin-
cial assessment process;
usually from other Cana-
dian provinces. Tey enter
a term of service agree-
ment with the region for
a minimum of three years
ofering the possibility of
stability for both the town
and the physician. Refer-
ring to the region, Gilson
says: We actually always
just sponsor as many as we
can because we fnd that
we always have places for
more physicians. Ive nev-
er been in a position where
weve had more physicians
than we needed ready to
practice and not enough
spaces. Ive unfortunately
never had that happen.
Still, Gilson reports
that Minnedosa is fortu-
nate to enjoy a full comple-
ment of six physicians. Lo-
cal physicians work in a fee
for service arrangement at
the Minnedosa Clinic, and
also practice at the hos-
pital. Tis second piece is
a key part of ensuring the
community is well served.
We want to make sure
we have 24/7 emergency
room coverage, says Gil-
son.
Tere is no set num-
ber of physicians that
Minnedosa must have,
based on population or
other factors. What mat-
ters is open communica-
tion with the physicians
and community. Te
physicians evaluate how
many patients they can/
want to handle in combi-
nation with their duties
at the hospital; a decision
that usually factors in how
much they are paid per vis-
it. Some communities op-
erate with four physicians.
Gilson says. So, physicians
might ask the authority
to recruit more doctors if
their workloads were too
high. Alternatively, they
could advise the authority
not to fll a vacant position
if they felt that they could
handle more patients.

By BRIAN PALLISTER
Leader of the Of cial Opposition
W
hen I was a young man, I was involved in a 4-H
program, and lived by the organizations motto,
Learn to Do by Doing.
What I learned from that experience is that peo-
ple make a diference. I grew up in a rural community
where our school was a community school. It was ac-
tually built by the parents of the children that attend-
ed that school. I coached and volunteered, just as my
parents had done, because I knew that people make a
diference in the lives of others. As an elected of cial,
Ive learned that people matter greatly when it comes
to developing policy that makes sense.
Te NDP doesnt under stand that. Tey are di-
recting Manitoba Hydro to plow ahead with a $21 bil-
lion megaproject plan gamble to build two new hydro
dams and a hydro transmission line without giving the
people of Manitoba a say in how that project should be
structured, or if the project is needed at all. Instead of
being open, transparent and including Manitobans in
the decision process, the NDP hide facts and make it as
dif cult as possible for Manitobans to understand the
project.
Take for instance the review processes for these
projects. According to Manitobas Sustainable De-
velopment Principles economic and environmental
decision-making should be integrated to create a clear
picture of whether the project makes sense or not. Te
Wuskwatim dam was reviewed this way and the pro-
cess worked well. For the megaproject however, the
NDP created four dif erent review commissions to
study individual pieces of the project. Tese commis-
sions complained they cant do a complete job without
more information and a better review process than the
one dictated by the NDP. Te NDP refused to provide
it.
Many Manitoba Hydro of cials and experts, both
present and past, say that the NDPs approach doesnt
make sense. Past NDP Cabinet Ministers like Len Ev-
ans and Tim Sale a previous Minister responsible for
Manitoba Hydro say the NDP need to rethink these
plans to get the best bang for each taxpayers buck. I
couldnt agree more.
But the NDPs plan is dif erent. According to the
experts Manitoba will not need new power generation
for a decade. Te NDP are directing Manitoba Hydro
to spend $21 billion on the Keeyask and Conawapa
dams and BiPole 3 hydro line on the gamble of selling
proftable power into foreign markets. Te ef ect of this
megaproject gamble will be to triple your Manitoba
Hydro debt and have your hydro rates double IF the
NDPs gamble on export sales pays of. Given the new
supplies of energy like wind power and natural gas
competing with Hydro this is not a sure bet.
In the end, the NDP wont have to pay up if their
gamble doesnt work, the people of Manitoba and their
children will be forced to pay. Te price will be higher
hydro bills and increased taxes to cover hydros debt.
Tats why its so important Manitobans demand a
complete and open review of the megaproject plan by
experts and not NDP Cabinet Ministers.
Tis will only happen if Manitobans get involved
and tell Greg Selinger the NDP must put their plans
up for a complete and transparent review. Manitobans
cannot aford an NDP megaproject gamble without
full knowledge of the facts.
Let Premier Greg Selinger know the NDP mega-
project gamble needs to be reviewed. Write him at:
Room 204, Legislative Building, 450 Broadway, Winni-
peg, Man., R3C 0V8, or email him at: premier@leg.gov.

n February 2013 Ser-
vices to Seniors met an
all time goal of 60 Lifeline
Units in Minnedosa and
surrounding Rural Munici-
palities of Saskatchewan,
Minto and Odanah.
Lifeline is a button you
can wear either around
your neck or on your wrist.
If you have a fall and can
not get to the phone to call
for help all you have to do
is press your button and
someone will be right with
you. Lifeline is not just for
the elderly, many people
of all ages use Lifeline for
medical conditions.
With 60 lifelines to ser-
vice the Resource Coordi-
nator is often in and out of
the of ce.
Services to Seniors
is a non proft organiza-
tion that receives a grant
from the Prairie Mountain
Regional Health Author-
ity (former Assiniboine Re-
gional Health Authority) to
assist in funds for a portion
of the projects budget. Be-
ing that the monies are in
a form of a grant there are
no benefts or pensions for
staf.
Services to Seniors
also relies on grants from
the Town of Minnedosa,
and the R.M.s of Saskatch-
ewan, Minto and Odanah
for operating costs such as
rent, hydro, telephone, in-
ternet, of ce supplies and
equipment, insurance, au-
dit, mileage and training
workshops.
In 1989 (24 years ago)
an application was sent
for Support Service Fund-
ing to the Support Service
Coordinator in Winnipeg,
MB by Dawn Erven and
Audrey Briese.
Te Services to Se-
niors of ce is located in
the Townview Manor, a
Manitoba Housing Build-
ing. Many people believe
because the of ce is lo-
cated in a Manitoba Hous-
ing Building that we are
Manitoba Housing or only
deal with the clients of the
Townview. Tis is not true.
Our organization covers
the Town of Minnedosa
and surrounding R.M.s.
Te reason we are locat-
ed in the TVM is the rent
is signif cantly less than
main street of ce space
and the congregate meal
program is operated on the
sixth foor of the Townview
Manor.
Te Townview Manor
has vulnerable citizens
therefore having a keypad
entry into the building for
their safety.
If you would like to
discuss services ofered
please contact the of ce.
If the Resource Coordina-
tor is not in please leave a

We kept hearing that
the cello is peoples favou-
rite instrument. And also
that the harp is so well
loved. So we thought wed
put them together, said
Ariel Barnes on Tuesday
night; referring to him-
self and his collaborator
in Couloir, Heidi Krutzen.
Barnes and Krutzen are
well known and respected
on their own in the North
American classical music
scene. Krutzen is Princi-
pal Harp for the Vancou-
ver Opera, and Barnes is
Principal Cello for both
the Vancouver Opera and
Vancouver Symphony.
Both are former principles
of the CBC Radio Orches-
tra, and members of the
Turning Point Ensemble.
Harp and cello duos
are rare, so Couloir is a
project of research and
creation; fnding pieces
that they want to play that
also align with their in-
struments, with Krutzen
taking on transcription
duties to adapt pieces for
their use. And, of course,
outreach. Two of their
pieces were commis-
sioned- one premiered on
this tour- by jazzman Brad
Turner, and another by
Jocelyn Morlock.
Barnes said they
were enchanted with
Minnedosa. After rolling
by the clock tower and
stopping in for cofee at
Chipperfelds, they set up
for their snowy Tuesday
night performance at the
United Church.
Does this enchant-
ment mean Minnedosa
can take some of the
credit for Couloirs per-
formance? Maybe, maybe
not. It didnt hurt that
Barnes brought along and
played a one of a kind cello
built by Joannes Francis-
cus Celoniatus in 1730 of
black Italian poplar. Cur-
rently on loan to Barnes
from the Canada Council
of the Arts, the piece is val-
ued at $750,000.
Still, there was a sense
in the comfortably flled
sanctuary that the pair
had made an impression
well before this informa-
tion was shared. Te mu-
sicians are skillful, deeply
connected to the moment
of creation both with
their own instruments
and each other, and also
playful; making the most
of timing with the sharp
points, the long stretches,
the pauses. Teir treat-
ment of diferent styles
was equally enthusiastic
and respectful, ofering a
diversity that spanned old,
accessible dance pieces,
Debussys more symbolic/
placeholder style, and a
recent jazz inspired piece.
And they laughed with the
audience when we didnt
quite predict the end of
the piece.
Te show was pre-
sented by Prairie Debut
and Expressions Concert
Series.
Harp and cello duo entertains Expressions crowd
Continued from Page 1
Following the opening
ceremonies, Mary Fenske
of Brandon gave a history
lesson on the league. In
1983, a number of women
had reached age 60, the
cut of point for the Mani-
toba Ladies Curling As-
sociation; but wanted to
continue playing. After
trying to form a 60+ group
with the league, and being
turned down, Iris Carroll,
Marguerite Hood, Eileen
Marsden, Marg Ritchie,
and Betty Simpson recruit-
ed teams from the existing
12 divisions. Tey drew
up a constitution, bylaws
and standing rules, and set
up chair people for each
district. Fenske says that
by 1992, the league had
52 registered teams; and
this number grew to 67 in
2001. Te group does some
fundraising to cut down
entry costs, including sell-
ing a calendar in partner-
ship with the Riverview
Curling Club in Brandon.
Fenske remarks that
though numbers seem to
be declining, there is in-
terest from baby boom-
ers coming along. Whats
more, now with the stick,
people are able to play as
they get older. Te eldest
player at the tournament
this week was 89, but she
knows of a 95-year-old
player in Winnipeg.
Sunday night also fea-
tured poetry from Law-
rence Ruddick, and music
from the Cameron Con-
nection.
J ean Gar bol i ns ky
chaired the local organis-
ing committee. Lewis re-
ports that just over a dozen
volunteers pulled of the
event, along with generous
support from the commu-
nity and local businesses.

Dear Reena,
I have been trying
to clean out some excess
items in my house and
have some old (dead)
Christmas lights that I
would like to recycle. I
know that the copper wire
is valuable, but if there
isnt a place that will pay
for them, I would just like
to fnd a place that will re-
cycle them as I dont just
want to put them in the
garbage. Barb
Dear Barb,
You have a couple of
options: Depending on the
lights that you own, you
can take a small work knife
or an old paring knife and
carefully strip the plastic
from the wire. Check out
a variety of places that buy
and sell copper on-line
or in your area. Another
option is to donate your
Christmas lights just as you
would old clothes. Even
if the lights dont work,
someone might want to
use them as craft supplies.
It beats tossing them!
Dear Reena,
I have burnt a pot very
badly. It had red cabbage
in it and I cannot remove
the black from the bottom.
Can you give me a solution
for this? Jean
Dear Jean,
Soak the pan with
dishwasher detergent and
hot waterfor a couple of
hours, scrub with a steel
wool pad. Or (and this is
what I like to do) into your
pot pour baking soda, dish
soap and enough water to
cover the bottom. Boil the
contents for 5 mins. Let
sit just until cool enough
to handle and scrub with
anS.O.S pad. Some people
use oven cleaner for this
purpose and leave it over-
night, but I prefer baking
soda.
Dear Reena,
Would you be able to
tell me how I can get mold
of of the white rubber seal
around our fridge door?
Tis is on a bar fridge
thatwas stored in a base-
ment where the humidity
was very high.I am not
sure if someone tried to re-
move the mold before, so I
dont know if any cleaning
products have been used.
Donna
Dear Donna,
Sounds like you need
to begin by checking to see
if the seal needs replacing.
You should not be able to
slide a piece of paper be-
tween the rubber seal and
the wall of the refrigerator
(or freezer). If the piece
of papers slips between
the seal and the wall, the
seal is not tight enough
and the gasket requires
replacement. To clean the
seal, combine 5 drops tea
tree oil, and white vinegar.
Spray and scrub.

Hi Reena,
With regards to clean-

do not recommend any-
thing except as you noted
mild soap and water (just a
damp clean cloth and not
excess water, drying imme-
diately). Te Murphys Oil,
Cabinet Magic, detergents
and abrasive cleaners can
have a deteriorating efect
on the fnish over time and
is not recommended and
will void warranty.

Tip of the Week!
For your teacher,
friend, spouse, brother,
sister, mom or dad, de-
sign a special Chocolate
Floral Bouquet. Glue two
Chocolate Kisses together
(bottom to bottom). Insert
a piece of 6 (15 cm) wire
into one of the pointed
ends of the double kiss.
Te wire tip may need to
be heated using the fame
of a candle. Wrap a 4 (10
cm) square of cellophane
around the Chocolate
Kisses roses. Cover the
stems with foral tape and
attach artif cial leaves to
stems. Tie all of the roses
together with a bow. Tip:
Coloured cellophane will
look even better.

M
ost cropping plans
for the majority of
producers have been de-
termined last fall while
harvesting the 2012 crop.
Tere are however in most
operations a certain per-
centage of acres where a
traditional rotation is not
suitable for a variety of rea-
sons. Tese are often con-
sidered fex acres, and are
often targeted specifcally
based upon an agronomic
need. Historically these
acres had been seeded to
forage however the dra-
matic jump in grain and
oilseed prices saw these
acres pulled out of forages
and put back into grains
and oilseeds. Te rotation-
al beneft from this move
has seen little in the way
of a yield penalty however
the yield curve will soon
turn downward sharply as
the long term productiv-
ity of these acres becomes
evident. Te loss in forage
acres combined with a per-
sistent US drought has cre-
ated a demand for forages
that cannot be replenished
quickly suggesting that
perhaps now is the time
to once again place these
challenged acres back into
forage.
So what type of forage
would be most suitable?
Tis will depend some-
what on the agronomic
challenges these acres
possess and also in what
forage market you are tar-
geting. Export hay mar-
kets typically require high
percentages of alfalfa in
order to maximize protein
and energy levels. Tis will
mean that production will
typically have to occur on
acres that have only mi-
nor limitation to produc-
tion. In a typical hay mix
one can use the following
blend as a guideline in lbs/
acres: 6-8 lbs of alfalfa (de-
pends upon end use), 4 lbs
Meadow brome if second
cut to be grazed, Smooth
brome if not grazed, and
2 lbs Timothy. As limita-
tion increase and if salin-
ity is present then brome
can be decreased with Tall
Fescue being added de-
pending on the severity. If
land is prone to temporary
f ooding then brome can
be decreased and Timo-
thy rate can be increased
and Creeping Red Fescue
included. If soils are light
and prone to drought con-
ditions then brome can
be decreased and Crested
Wheat Grass can be add-
ed. Some growers have
also had good success in
replacing some brome
with Intermediate Wheat
Grass in that it yields simi-
lar to brome but seems to
dry down and even out
bale moisture better then
brome.
Fertilizing Forage Stands
One way to take a
more immediate advan-
tage of the increase in hay
prices is to fertilize es-
tablished forage stands.
Forage stands with a high
percentage of alfalfa will
require no nitrogen and
somewhere between 25-
30 pounds of actual phos-
phate and approximately
15 pounds of actual sul-
phur. Coarse soils may
also require potassium at
45-90 pounds per acre. If
the stand is predominant-
ly grass and there is a low
percentage of alfalfa then
40-60 pounds of nitrogen
should also be applied.

Sympathy to Ed and Julie Alexiuk (Proskin) on the
passing of Eds sister, Nancy Alexiuk, aged 53 years. A
memorial service was held in Winnipeg and a burial will
take place at a later date.
Recently one evening, Lorrie and Ollie Lewandoski,
who live north of Sandy Lake, were suddenly frightened
by a very loud roar and bright red light above their house.
Tinking it might be something from outer space about
to crash into the house, but landed in the garden. Imme-
diately the doorbell rang and lo and behold it was a heli-
copter pilot and his son. Tey stated they had to land be-
cause of the darkness and fog. Tey were on their way to
the park from Fernie, BC, to net, take blood samples and
tag approximately 90 animals, which would take three
days. After making some phone calls, the Park Warden
picked them up in his truck and took them to Elkhorn
Ranch for the night. Te helicopter was parked closer to
the house, it was covered and a heater was plugged in
to keep it warm. Early the next morning, they lifted and
took of. Friendly Manitoba eh.

Stay relaxed. You
cant be tight. You have to
stand a certain way that
feels comfortable. Usually
the dominant foot in front
of the other, and I usually
lean onto that foot. Tat
way its more comfortable.
Some vowels are
easier to say on diferent
notes than others. Also, as
you approach higher notes
you have to sing diferent-
ly. Same when you go to
lower notes. You have to
move your mouth difer-
ently, and use diferent
ways of blowing air.
Stevie Onyshko shares
pointers from his 93-year-
old voice teacher Doris
Mayoh. Im paying atten-
tion. Have you heard this
kid sing? All I can say is,
its working.
Onyshko is 12 years
old. Last month, he sang
Oh Canada for the Pee-
wee tournament at the
Minnedosa Arena. He may
be in danger of not being
invited back, on account
of him just about stealing
the show!
Hes into classical
music. Musical theatre is
not his bag, although he
does travel to Winnipeg
fairly regularly to catch
shows at Rainbow Stage.
Right now, hes working
on a few pieces for the lo-
cal festivals. Its the vocal
work that attracts him. I
just like singing and trying
to get the purest tone pos-
sible.
He a ppr e c i a t e s
the history of music in
Minnedosa, even though
sometimes he thinks that
what he does can be very
diferent for other people
to hear. Of course sup-
port for classical music
in Minnedosa is not as
powerful as in Brandon.
Brandon has more re-

He goes over to the pi-
ano, drums up a Sonatina
in G by Muzio Clementi.
He seems as conscien-
tious about his piano play-
ing as singing. Most of the
time Im thinking Please,
I dont want to screw up!.
But otherwise Im listen-
ing for the dynamics. For
this song I need to work
on the dynamics. Tat
little trill part didnt go so
well. I should have played
it slower actually.

CADURCIS NEWS
By KATE SJOBERG
T
he federal Liberal lead-
ership race continues.
Justin Trudeau, Member of
Parliament for Papineau,
was at the Neepawa Chick-
en Corral on January 30th
to convince over 80 attend-
ees to elect him as Liberal
leader in April.
Trudeau was intro-
duced by Chief Morris
Shannacappo of Rolling
River Reserve who wel-
comed Trudeau, Provin-
cial Liberal Leader Dr. Jon
Gerrard, and participants
to Treaty two territory. In
his opening remarks, he
encouraged support for
Idle No More, and respect
for the Treaties, and also
congratulated Trudeau on
his boxing match win over
Senator Patrick Brazeau
last March.
A number of Minnedo-
sans were there to support
Trudeau. Tey were ex-
cited to see Trudeau, and
talked about his youth and
energy as part of the rea-
son for their support.
Trudeau was endorsed
by Ralph Goodale, MP for
Wascada on January 29th.
On agriculture, Trudeau
said: Our primary market
for agriculture will always
be ourselves. And there is
a greater and greater inter-
est in trying to make sure
that we have less geneti-
cally modifed foods, that
we eat more organic, and
that needs to be the prior-
ity. Of course in numbers,
outgoing trade is always
more important (than in-
coming) and our relation-
ship with the American
market will always defne
Canadian prosperity in ag-
riculture. Still, on a person-
al level as citizens, we can
and must start demand-
ing better. Te business of
food, getting away from
family farms, getting away
from what Im fortunate
about in Quebec where
there is a huge focus on
local produce and echoed
right across the country.
People are starting to de-
mand more and what I
think we really need is a
government who is will-
ing to encourage that. Not
only focusing on the single
bottom line. Now, its going
to require a big shift. But I
think that that shift actu-
ally starts with being mind-
ful of some of the problems
that come from various ag-
ricultural habits. Canadi-
ans are literally hungering
for better options. We need
to make sure we are pro-
viding our farmers with the
capacity to ofer Canadians
more of what they want.
On Water: T e bulk
water export trigger in
NAFTA is something that
must concern us. Te idea
of bringing water outside
of a watershed is some-
thing that I dont think we
should ever engage in. I
do not want to commodify
water at all. And it is also
a problem when we talk
about importing from parts
of the world where they re-
quire more water than they
have to grow their crops.
We have the potential to
take a real role on water
issues because we are so
rich in water resources. So
far thats exactly the kind
of broad leadership that
seems anathema to this
administration.
On a national housing
strategy: We are the fnal
OECD country that doesnt
have a national housing
strategy. We need to talk
about social housing, and
housing for the most vul-
nerable. If were going to
allow people to lift them-
selves out of poverty and
vulnerable situations, they
need a base with which to
make it grow. We also have
to realize for the middle
class that the rising cost of
mortgages and household
debt, the lack of equity in
homes, the increasing dif -
culty in fnding good rental
properties, this is putting
an awful lot of pressure on
housing right across the
board. So we have to start
looking at seriously engag-
ing the provincial partners,
reinvesting in social hous-
ing infrastructure. What
that looks like is working
with the Canadian Mort-
gage and Housing Corpo-
ration and making invest-
ments. To do this, we need
to create more prosperity
by investing in education,
understanding the impor-
tance of trade, making the
most of our natural re-
sources, being good fscal
managers, and being in-
novative with the solutions
we bring forward.

Atoms
By JENN MERRITT
O
n the morning of Feb-
ruary 2nd, the Atoms
team travelled to Rivers for
their annual tournament.
Te Bombers frst game
would be against the Bran-
don Green Battalions. First
period both teams were
tied, with a score of 1-1.
Te Bombers would net
another goal in the second,
to bring the score to 2-1. It
was a nail-biting third pe-
riod but the Bombers came
out on top and skated away
with a 3-2 win, over the
Battalions. Goals/ assists
went to; Kayden Suther-
land (1G, 1A), Bryden Mc-
Farlane (1G), Konlyn Ne-
metchek (1G) and Chloe
Kushner with (1A). Player
of the game was awarded
to Minnedosas goalie, Cole
Cibula. Great work, Cole!
Since the Bombers
won their frst game, they
got to enjoy the rest of their
Saturday. Tey would head
back early the next morn-
ing, for their second game
of the Tournament. Next,
the Bombers would face-of
against the Russell Rams.
Te f rst period the Rams
took a 2-0 lead. Te Bomb-
ers try as they might were
un-successful in scoring,
in the second and unfor-
tunately by the end of the
third the Bombers would
take a 6-0 loss, against the
Rams. Player of the Game
this time was awarded to,
Kayden Sutherland. Well
done, Kayden! Tis would
now place the Bombers,
into the C Finals game.
Te third game for
Minnedosa would be later
that day, against the Por-
tage Atom #3 team. At the
end of the frst period, both
teams were matched with
one a piece. It was again
very evenly played in the
second, with a score of 3-3
but it would be the third
that would seal the game for
the Bombers. Tey slapped
in three more goals in the
third, to defeat Portage 6-3.
It was a very intense game,
which for awhile was very
closely matched; however
the Bombers pulled out all
the stops to hold onto the
win. Goals/ assists went to:
Kayden Sutherland (Hat
trick), Carter Hedley (2G),
Konlyn Nemetchek (1G)
and Bryden McFarlane
with (1A). Te fnal Player
of the Game was given to,
Carter Hedley. Good job,
Carter!
Im so proud of our
kids, for playing a hard and
clean game against Por-
tage. Tis game was proof
that if you play with Pride,
youll always be on top in
the end, for; It does not
matter how many times
you get knocked down, but
how many time you get
back up ~Vince Lombardi.
Great playing Minnedosa
Atoms, you should all be
very proud of yourselves!
Overall, the Atoms team did
their best and came in ffth
out of eight teams. Tere
was some tough competi-
tion so ffth was quite re-
spectable.
Te Atoms will now be
gearing up for their league
Playofs to start. Wish them
luck.

R
ay Bollman is a
former statistician
with Statistics Canada,
and adjunct professor
at U of Saskatchewan,
and adjunct professor
at Brandon University.
He was asked to give a
demographic update for
southwest Manitoba at the
University of Brandon back
in November. He ofers a
few points of interest for
Minnedosa.
Census division
15, which includes
Minnedosa and Neepawa
and stretches pretty clear
to the Saskatchewan
border has been seeing
more deaths than births
for the 14 years between
2006 and 2011.
In terms of
workforce, farmers have
been in the minority since
1971 as the workforce
shifted to more numbers of
wholesale and retail trade,
and heathcare and social
assistance than farm based
workers.
N a t i o n a l l y ,
Canada will see deaths
exceeding births by 2030,
so the only population
growth will be from
immigration.
Even though
Minnedosa is a part of
the same division as
Neepawa, the area came
111th out of 288 divisions
nationally in terms of
attracting immigrants.
Division 3 which includes
Winkler, Morden, and
Altona was number one
in all of Canada on a per
capita basis in attracting
immigrants.
Finally, he noted
what many business
owners already observe;
that our marketable area
(and here, he includes
municipalities of Odanah,
Rosedale, Harrison,
Strathclair, Clanwilliam)
the population has been
very stable at under 10000
for some time, meaning
that fnding markets is
more of a challenge, or
could involve fnding
demand further away.
In seeking to grow
the economy, Bollman
observes that a number
of local industries sell to
national or international
markets. For example, the
ethanol plant and other
local industry, farms, and
Canadian Pacifc Railways.
As far as he can see, this is
a model that works. Youve
got to keep thinking of
things you can do to export
elsewhere, and bring in
money from elsewhere.
Perogies or pizzas or
orchestra services; and
that has to grow at the
same pace that youre
losing people on farms,
due to industrialization in
agriculture. In considering
Minnedosas relationship
vs. Neepawa and Brandon
where more growth is
happening, its worth it
to do something new, to
encourage growth, and
that acting as a bedroom
community is not ideal.
Dreaming up ideas, he
says Maybe you could
develop a community
orchestra program that
draws people in from other
communities. Or what
about being the curling
capital of Manitoba? He
also strongly encourages
partnerships between
towns and First Nations
Reserves, since Aboriginal
c o mmu n i t i e s a r e
experiencing population
growth.
He also posits
niche expertise as another
way attract attention and
residents; and encourages
thinking about meeting
many needs with an
initiative. MREC is on
the go, and he thinks
its worth considering
regional population
changes as a part of the
plan. You want to see how
many kids are coming
up, and also whether
there will be coaches
and folks to support the
teams. Terefore, the
current Rolling River
School Division review of
elementary schools in the
Erickson catchment area
due to low enrollment may
be cause for concern.
He thinks its
wor t h cons i der i ng
i mmi gr at i on as an
opportunity since overall
the Canadian population
is set to decline. What
if people in Minnedosa
started learning Mandarin.
Ten you start up English
as a second language
program, and attract
kids from China who
want to learn English.
Tere is a market for this.
Parents want their kids
to speak English. To do
this, you need language
teachers, who make an
ok wage. He sees this as
an opportunity to sell a
service to international
folks who bring dollars
from elsewhere, with value
added to the community of
more jobs, and increased
skill levels. Ten, maybe
theres the opportunity to
engage in other types of
development with folks
from China.
Mandarin, anyone? Ideas for
growth from a demographer
