Three pieces of machinery rest in a field west of Basswood Wednesday morning waiting to begin another busy day of harvest.

H

arvest 2016 is underway! According to the
latest weekly crop report from Manitoba
Agriculture, harvest of winter wheat and fall
rye is complete with average yields and good
quality. Harvest of barley and oats is underway and early in the week was reported at 50%
complete, again with average yields for barley
and above average yields for oats. Some early
canola has been harvested in the southwest region of the province with pea harvest close to
complete.

1,983

To date, spring wheat yields are ranging
from 30 to 90 bushels per acre with barley coming in at 60 to 100 bushels per acre and oats at
80 to 175 bushels per acre. Field peas are yielding 15 to 50 bushels an acre with canola at 10 to
55 bushels per acre.
During the busy harvest season, farmers and their families are reminded to be safe
and reduce dangerous risks during this oftenstressful rushed time of the year. Slow down,
remember to think ahead and don’t attempt

any risks or shortcuts. Motorists and the general public are also reminded to watch for large,
slow-moving machinery as they make their
treck from field to field. Be patient, use common sense and share the road with our farmers!
Let’s all hope for good weather for the
Labour Day long weekend, not only for our
campers spending one last weekend at the lake
but also for our hard working farmers as they
work to get this year’s crop in the bin.

IT’S A FACT!

1,983 copies of The Minnedosa Tribune are SOLD each week.

It’s Almost Hockey Time Again
By RYAN THORPE

R

egistration
for
Minnedosa Minor
Hockey and Figure Skating will be held Tuesday
and Wednesday evenings
or parents can register
for the hockey program
online as on September
1st. (See ad in this week’s
Coming Events for more
details).
“I just hope we have
a fun year again,” said
President of Minnedosa
Minor Hockey Ken Morrice. “We’re lucky in
that we’ve got some really great coaching, we’ve
got a great group of kids
and we’ve got great parent support. We just want
to continue the success
and as long as the kids
are learning and having
fun at the same time it’s
great. Obviously from the

coaching side we want to
be competitive, but it’s not
about winning at all costs.
We definitely want to win,
but having fun is the main
thing.”
While most people
sign up their children online, the registration on
Tuesday will allow anyone
having difficulty signing
up electronically the opportunity to have a representative of Minnedosa
Minor Hockey walk them
through the registration
process. It also allows parents the chance to drop off
cheques for the upcoming
season, as well as ask any
questions they may have.
“You walk in and
if you’re having issues
with registering online at
home,” said Morrice, “we
will have someone there
that can go through the
online process with you. It

can be helpful, especially
for the newbies, as it can
be a bit overwhelming
for the hip parents sometimes. So sometimes it’s
just easier to have someone there to talk it through
with you. If anyone has
any questions they can
ask them and if the people
there don’t have the answers, they’ll take down
numbers a nd get a hold
of me and we can go from
there.”
On
average
the
Minnedosa program has
between 80 to 85 children
signed up each season.
Th e Minnedosa program
consistently has a team
for every age group and
has managed to field two
teams for certain age
groups in the past.
An early bird registration was held this summer,
which saw roughly 40 kids

sign up for the upcoming
season. Morrice expects
there to be 80 to 85 children again this year, barring an infl ux from other
rural communities unable
to field teams.
“For the most part I
think everyone has been
through it at least once,”
said Morrice, “so it’s pretty
straight forward. It’s just
about making sure that
we get the kids registered
prior to Wednesday, that
way when we have our
Minor Hockey League
board meeting the following Monday we have
our numbers together and
know what we’ve got for
teams.”

Hockey players are
itching to get back on
the ice for another
season of play.

Help The Foundation Reach It’s Goal
Minimum $7,500 Needed By October 31st
By DARRYL HOLYK

E

arlier this year, Thomas
Sill Foundation issued
a challenge to community
foundations to grow their
endowment. The challenge
put forth was, if community foundations could increase their funds between
$10,000
and
$50,000,
Thomas Sill Foundation
would match those donations by 50 percent. The
Minnedosa and District
Foundation accepted this
challenge and set its goal
at the maximum $50,000
in hopes of receiving a
$25,000 contribution from
Thomas Sill Foundation.
The good news is
that the local Foundation
is currently only $7,500
away from reaching that
goal! However, the challenge deadline is October
31st leaving less than eight
weeks to raise the additional $7,500 required. As
this deadline quickly approaches, the board of the
Minnedosa and District
Foundation is reaching out
to the public and asking for
your help in reaching this
goal so our community can
benefit from an additional
$25,000 in funding!
While donations made
to the local Foundation are
added to the endowment
fund on which only the
interest is donated back to

the community, the available $25,000 from Thomas
Sill Foundation does not
have to be added to the endowment fund but is “flow
through money” which
can be immediately donated back to community
programs and projects by
the Minnedosa and District Foundation.
The local Foundation has been fortunate to
receive a number of sizable bequests and estates
over the years. As a result
of this, the Foundation
has been able to grow its
fund and donate sizable
amounts of accumulated
interest each year. In 2015
alone, The Minnedosa and
District Foundation provided a total of $68,750
of grant funding for the
community. This amount
was divided between 28
community recipients and
two high school graduation scholarship recipients. The mandate of the
local Foundation supports
all aspects of the community including recreation,
health, education, arts,
culture and heritage. In addition to its general “Smart
and Caring Community”
fund, the local Foundation has established two
sub funds which donors
can select if they wish their
donation to benefit a specific area. The sub funds

are the Minnedosa District
Museum and Heritage Village Fund and Shawn Cooper Memorial Scholarship
Fund.
There are numerous ways to donate to the
Minnedosa and District
Foundation and help your
community for years to
come. There is no minimum donation requirement and financial contributions of all sizes are
welcome. In addition to
outright donations, bequests or “In Memory”
gifts, there are other creative ways you can give
to your local Foundation.
How about a challenge?
During the Minnedosa
Rotary Supper and Draw
held Fun Fest weekend,
one of this year’s Rotary
Draw winners quickly tripled the amount as a donation to the Minnedosa
and District Foundation.
The winner challenged another community member
to match their $200 win as
a donation to the Foundation. The individual agreed
and then suggested a similar challenge to another
community member, who
also agreed. Within a few
short minutes, the friendly challenge resulted in a
$600 contribution to the
local foundation where it
will build the overall endowment and give back,

through interest earned,
for years to come.
If you want to help our
local foundation reach its
goal of $50,000 by the end
of October, consider issuing a similar challenge
– this can be a personal
challenge between family, friends or neighbours
or maybe a challenge between local businesses or
organizations. The possi-

bilities to support the local
Foundation are endless.
You can also make an
outright donation to the
Minnedosa and District
Foundation, Box 1980,
Minnedosa, MB R0J 1E0.
You can donate online at
minnedosafoundation.
com or contact one of the
local Foundation Board
members – Bruce McNabb,
Maxine Laws, Jean Garbo-

linsky, Donna Dillabough,
Wilma Jones, Pat Skatch,
Grant Spraggs and Harvey
Wedgewood.
Help the Minnedosa
and District Foundation
reach its goal of $50,000
and let’s raise the needed
$7,500 in donations before
the end of October.

The Minnedosa Tribune

DARRYL A.HOLYK - PUBLISHER AND EDITOR

It’s Been Great! Well… Fancy Meeting You Here
Living in
Paradise

By RYAN THORPE

T

he September 2nd edition of The Minnedosa Tribune
will be my last as a staff reporter. On Monday, September 5th, I will be boarding a plane to Ontario, where I will
complete my fi nal year of journalism school at Niagara
College in Welland, Ontario.
I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you
to the community of Minnedosa and to all those who have
volunteered their knowledge and time to me while researching stories. It has been a pleasure to report on and
cover the myriad of events that have taken place in the
community.
I would also like to express my thanks and gratitude
to everyone at The Minnedosa Tribune and in particular
my editor, Darryl Holyk. Throughout my three-and-a-half
months as staff reporter, Darryl has been nothing but supportive and welcoming, while also offering me the freedom
to pursue stories that interest me. A journalist cannot ask
for more from an editor and I only hope that I continue to
work with individuals of his character moving forward in
my career.
I was recently speaking to a friend from journalism
school about our time spent in professional newsrooms
this summer. His experience echoes my own, in that my
time at The Tribune has undoubtedly made me a more experienced and well-rounded reporter.
I enter into my fi nal school year, one where my fellow
classmates and I will take over the operation of the schools
newspaper Niagara News, more confident in my skills, capable of developing and working on multiple stories at a
time and able to consistently meet deadlines. I have The
Minnedosa Tribune to thank for this.
Despite growing up in Brandon, I had not spent much
time in Minnedosa until this summer. What strikes me
most about my time covering events in the community is
just how fantastic of a place it is and just how warm and
generous the people are who call it home. I have lost track
of the amount of articles I have written on individuals receiving prestigious awards in recognition of their volunteer
work, charity and fundraising events organized on a routine basis, or community events thrown that have a tangible and positive impact on the lives of residents. Th
is is
what I will remember most about Minnedosa.
I will miss covering events in Minnedosa and would
once again like to extend my appreciation and gratitude to
the community and The Tribune . To anyone who took the
time to read my work this summer, I would also like to say
thank you. I hope that you found it enjoyable and informative.

I

t is an awkward exchange that I have become accustomed to, but for someone who may not have
as thick a skin, they may find that in the fickle realm
of rural economic development that they are better suited for another line of work. I am sharing
this with you because I suspect that the majority of
people are unaware of some of the unique circumstances that accompany this role in a farming town.
Holding the position of “Economic Development Officer”, as the name suggests the focus of the
job is to find ways to improve upon the economy in
the jurisdiction that pays your cheque. Primarily, it
is regarded that the thrust of this responsibility is to
entice new business to locate here which, in turn,
creates jobs. As I’m sure we can all appreciate, this
is not an overnight process, so the portfolio of the
economic development offi ce in many communities is also exploring other opportunities to support
the business sector.
Encouraging business retention and supporting expansion and diversifi cation of existing merchants is also an important component. Liaising
with those entrepreneurs to identify areas where
they can remain vital in a changing economy, shopping local, and assisting where appropriate on marketing and promotion to the region at large all fall
within the scope of this work. It’s not a single task,
but instead speaks to a daily approach to the job
with dozens of individual actions and interactions
every day. Most of this work goes largely unseen by
the public.
Where things get awkward for an economic development officer in rural Manitoba, and I’m sure
that many of my peers would agree with me, is this:
Given the role to be the ambassador for local business in our own town, it is alarming to the neigh-

bours when they run into you in a place of business in a neighboring town. They greet you with a
peculiar look as though they’ve caught you doing
something scandalous – as though you’ve betrayed
your professional obligation by venturing out of
town and spending money. On occasion, I’ve even
been approached by someone who said: “What?
Not shopping local today?” Heaven forbid! It’s almost as though the community feels that my own
spending will single handedly support the life-long
well-being of the Minnedosa business climate.
The irony that is never lost on me is that for us to
have this exchange in Neepawa, Onanole or Brandon that the person wagging an accusing finger at
me is also shopping outside of town. Should they
not also feel a responsibility to support their local
merchants? To contribute in any manner possible
to the livelihood and resilience of their own community? It’s certainly not my place to cast blame.
Nor should I have to justify how or where I spend
my off duty time and how that may involve my own
hard-earned pay cheque.
Economic development eff orts are important
to the ongoing growth and development of communities, but this isn’t a one man show. It requires
the full support of Mayors, Reeves and Councils, it
requires the participation of the planning district
and it involves participation from the merchant
community (both those active with the local Chamber of Commerce as well as those home-based
businesses and independent entrepreneurs). Most
importantly, the growth of the community doesn’t
move forward without the nod of agreement from
the tax payers (that’s you) to recognize the importance of investment in an environment that is welcoming to business development, retention and
expansion. And that, my friends, is my two cents
on the topic … which you’ll note I am spending “locally”.

people and we need to talk. You can find me under

Rowat’s Work Pays Off
Under The Dome
By

GREG NESBITT
Riding Mountain MLA

O

n September 1st,
Manitoba joined the
ranks of Ontario, Nova
Scotia and British Columbia in automatically administering hearing tests
to newborn infants – all
thanks to the work done by
a now retired MLA.
Th e Universal Newborn Hearing Screening
Act was introduced and
passed in 2013 as a Private
Members bill by then Progressive Conservative MLA
Leanne Rowat. Since that
time, regulations and standard processes and procedures were developed and
the necessary equipment
was installed throughout
the province to provide
services.
Our
government
knows that families in
Manitoba will benefit from
a universal program with
consistent screening services across the province,
so children with congenital
hearing loss have the opportunity to develop strong
cognitive, speech-processing and learning skills. It
is a common misconception for parents that hearing loss in their children
is easy to detect and many
years often go by without
properly discovering hearing loss in their child. Due
to how varied our children’s language development is, early detection
and diagnosis helps those
with congenital hearing
loss get the treatment they
need as early as possible,
as a child’s first two years
are the most important for

language development.
Thanks to Leanne for her
work in getting Bill 202
passed through the Legislature three years ago and
to our Minister of Health,
Seniors and Active Living
Kelvin Goertzen for putting the law into effect.
RHA Boards
Applications are currently open for residents to
apply or be nominated to
positions on the board of
the Prairie Mountain Regional Health Authority.
Minister Goertzen announced on August 11th
that rural boards would be
reduced from 15 to 12 and
that applications to sit on
the boards would be accepted until September
16th.
Boards are responsible for the resources and
performance of health
authorities. The minister
noted nominees must have
a diverse range of backgrounds, skills, interests,
experience and expertise,
and share a strong sense
of commitment to achieving the provincial vision
of healthy Manitobans
through an appropriate
balance of prevention and
care.
Nomination forms are
available at local regional
health authority offices,
community health offices,
in regional health facilities, or online at www.gov.

Ministers Visit

Infrastructure Funding

As a rookie MLA it is
certainly gratifying to have
Ministers from our government visit the constituency. Since being elected on
April 19th, I have had the
pleasure of having three
Ministers visit, with another scheduled to visit in
September. I believe this
shows that all Manitobans
matter to our government
and that we believe in
grassroots consultation.
Ralph Eichler, Minister of Agriculture, and
Blaine Pedersen, Minister
of Infrastructure, were out
in late July to speak with
producers and municipal officials about downstream flooding caused by
the Shellmouth Dam and
other water-related and
road issues.
The Minister of Indigenous and Municipal Relations, Eileen Clarke, who
is from my neighbouring
constituency to the east
Agassiz, spent a day last
week meeting with members of councils in the area.
I was pleased to be able to
join her for visits with the
Rural Municipality of Riding Mountain West, Russell-Binscarth Municipality, Rossburn Municipality
and the Waywayseecappo
First Nation.
The meetings allowed
members of council to
meet the Minister and her
special assistant, Craig
MacDonald of Minnedosa,
and discuss areas of concern.
Finally, the Minister of
Crowns, Ron Schuler, will
be in the Riding Mountain
constituency next week for
a scheduled meeting with
constituents.

Many area municipalities have submitted applications for cost-shared
infrastructure
funding
under four different grant
programs – the Municipal
Road and Bridge Program,
the New Building Canada
Fund – Small Communities Fund, the Clean Water
and Wastewater Fund, and
the Public Transit Infrastructure Fund. The deadline was August 26th with
funding announcements
expected this fall.
Municipalities were
able to apply online
through a “single window”,
which has been designed
to cut red tape and allow
for more efficient access to
funding.
Earlier this summer,
two area municipalities
received funding for new
water plants with cost
sharing by the federal and
provincial governments.
Russell-Binscarth received approval for a $12
million project, while
the Rural Municipality
of Yellowhead got the go
ahead for a $4 million project. Th e federal government will contribute 50
percent, with the provincial and municipal governments each contributing
25 percent.
The end result is that
residents of Shoal Lake,
Russell, Binscarth and perhaps Angusville, Waywayseecappo and Rossburn
will have reliable drinking
water that meets Canadian
standards now and into
the future.
Greg Nesbitt is the
MLA for Riding Mountain.

t’s long been known that Liberals believe they are entitled to their entitlements, and Justin Trudeau’s ‘limousine’ Liberals are certainly no different in that regard.
Last week several stories emerged of some clearly inappropriate and wasteful spending, and I am willing to bet
they are part of a larger pattern.
It started early in the mandate, with Infrastructure
Minister Amarjeet Sohi spending $835,000 to renovate
his office and get some what must be extremely nice furniture. While families are struggling to make ends meet
and facing continuously higher taxes, their tax dollars are
being sent to fund a luxurious lifestyle for this ‘celebrity’
government.
Recently it came to light that the Health Minister,
Jane Philpott, had charged taxpayers $1,700 for a one-day
limousine ride around Toronto. In response to the outrage, the Liberals were kind enough to clarify that it was a
luxury Lexus, not a limousine. Back are the days of urban
Liberal elitism, with no regard for taxpayer dollars.
Worse, not only did the Minister sign off
on the excessive costs; she chose to use a company owned by a
supporter who canvassed in her riding during the last
federal election campaign.
Now we have the Environment Minister, Catherine
McKenna, who hired a photojournalist to shoot pictures
of her entourage during the COP21 climate change conference in Paris in December. She managed to spend
$6,792.91 to get a few glamour pictures. This was the
same conference that the Liberals found it reasonable to
send a 155 person delegation to enjoy some fine dining
and nice lodging for what were essentially photo ops.
They promised defi cits, but I don’t think Canadians
were hoping it would be achieved through lavish spending on themselves.

Unfortunately Team

losing to Ontario 11-1 in
a match that Morris described as a poorly played
game by her and her

Team Manitoba defied expectations at the tournament and registered the
best ever performance by
the province in nationals.
“They were quite happy to have done so well,”
said Simpson, “they were
all just thrilled. They went
with the intention of getting a medal and they did
better than any of the other Manitoba teams have
ever done.”

Uses For Water From A Dehumidifier
Solutions and
Substitutions
By

REENA NERBAS
Dear Reena,
I have several pizza
restaurants on speed dial
and when the pizza arrives, it often has a little
plastic white table looking item in the centre of
the pizza. Do you have
any ideas as to how I can
reuse these little pieces of
plastic instead of throwing
them out? Candace
Dear Candace,
I know exactly what
you are talking about, reuse them to keep plastic
wrap off a frosted cake or
similar food item if you’re
bringing it somewhere for
a party and don’t want to
transport a reusable food
storage tub. Or use them
for flower arranging, when
using fl orist’s oasis (oasis

is the green foamy stuff
they use). Stick it to the
bottom of your container
and it will stop the oasis
from slipping. Florists often sell these items for this
use.
Additional
Comment: Many people assume that pizza boxes are
recyclable because they
are made from corrugated
cardboard. However, what
makes parts of them nonrecyclable is what comes
inside them, specifically,
the grease and cheese
from pizza. Food is one of
the worst contaminants in
the paper recycling process. Grease from pizza
boxes causes oil to form at
the top of the slurry, and
paper fi bres cannot separate from oils during the

Ad From The Past

pulping process. Essentially, this contaminant
causes the entire batch
to be ruined. The easiest
remedy for this problem is
to cut or tear out the soiled
portions of your pizza
boxes and garbage them.
Dear Reena,
I have a dehumidifi er in my basement that
needs emptying every day
during summer months.
I’m wondering if this water is good for anything
such as watering plants.
Trevor
Dear Trevor,
Dehumidifier water should not be used as
drinking water because it
is classifi ed as grey water
which may contain traces
of lead and other dangerous elements. However,
there are a few interesting uses for dehumidifier
water. Yes, you can use it
to water the plants in your
home and garden. Do not
use this water on plants
grown for consumption
because of the risk of
harmful
contaminants.
You can also use dehumidifi er water to save on
your water bill by pouring
the water into your toilet tank until it is full after each flush.
Dear Reena,
I was recently married
and now live in a small
home. It is my goal to recycle but I am not clear
on what is considered recyclable. Can you provide
me with a list of items that
may be recycled? Newly
Wed and Clueless

Dear Newlywed,
Congratulations and
good for you that you are
taking steps to reduce
your ecological footprint,
check your local area for
recycling guidelines. The
following is a list of what
may be recycled in most
areas: Newspapers, aluminum food and drink
containers, glass food and
beverage containers, steel
food and beverage containers, PET (#1 plastic)
bottle, telephone books,
magazines and catalogues, boxboard, juice
boxes, gable top beverage containers, HDPE (#2
plastic) containers, #4, #5
and #7 plastics (Gee, can
they make this number
system more complicated
please?). For more information about recycling in
Manitoba contact: greenmanitoba.ca

a good idea to recycle all
of the cardboard items in
your home that carry a recycling logo.
Additional Note: A
good rule of thumb is to
recycle according to the
list above. Sometimes
plastic grocery bags cannot be recycled but they
can be re-used over and
over again. If you have
an abundance of plastic
bags in your home, donate
them to a second hand
store instead of throwing
them into the garbage.

Question - One of
your previous columns
suggests switching to
white vinegar to reduce
static cling. I am not having much luck with dryer balls. I have two very
hairy dogs; try as I might

Dear Thomas,
If cardboard has a reDear Candice,

Add one half cup
it to your blue box. Most white vinegar to your wash
cardboard can be recycled load (not the dryer). Your
several times before the clothes will not smell of
fi bers become too weak
to manufacture into a new
product. Th erefore, it is

vinegar and you will save
yourself a pile of money
as vinegar is cheap. Fabric
softener sheets and liquid
fabric softener do a wonderful job in clogging up
the hoses in your washing
machine. Vinegar on the
other hand works to clean
out your washing machine
hoses and leaves everything fresh and static free.
But don’t get your hopes
too high, let’s face it as
long as you have pets you
will be in a constant fur
battle. But another great
tip is to lightly sponge
your clothes with water
before putting them into
the washing machine, this
helps to remove some of
the fur. If you are desperate, purchase clothes that
match the color of your
dog, this will make pet hair
much less obvious. Lastly,
be sure to empty your lint
trap after each use.
Fabulous Tip
of the Week:
If you want to reuse
a Styrofoam egg carton
here’s a neat little trick.
For young children who
have class parties, fill each
cup with Jell-O and refrigerate them until they are
set. Kids can pop the JellO out and enjoy a yummy
treat.

OBITUARIES
FREDERICK BURLY WETTELAND
MAY 30TH, 1923 AUGUST 18TH, 2016
It is with profound sadness we announce the sudden
passing of our beloved Dad,
Frederick Burly Wetteland at
the Minnedosa Personal Care
Home at the age of 93, with his
daughters Brenda and Terry by
his side.
Dad was born and raised in
the R.M. of Clanwilliam, the
second son of Frederick and Bertha
Wetteland (nee Gusdal).
Dad married Lorna Bold on October 25th, 1947 and farmed
in the Danvers District for about 10 years. He then moved his
family to Onanole in 1957 after purchasing a store there. He
later sold the store and became a labourer and worked at the
Cadet Camp, Parks Canada and various places in and around
Clear Lake and Minnedosa but he always farmed on the side.
He lived at Onanole for 48 years before selling the acreage
and moving to Minnedosa due to health issues both he and
Lorna were encountering. But after four years Onanole kept
calling their names and they moved back and resided there for
about three more years.
Deteriorating health moved them to Kinsmen Court in
Minnedosa in 2011. After Mom’s passing in 2012 Dad remained
in his suite until October 2013 when he was hospitalized until
he took up residence at the Minnedosa Personal Care Home on
January 15th, 2014 where he resided until his passing.
Dad was a happy man and made the best of any situation
with humour and dignity. And farming was his passion.
He made a few trips in his lifetime to visit his sister in Texas,
his brother in BC and numerous visits to his daughter, Brenda
and her family in Saskatchewan. He spent many happy hours
visiting with Terry and her family in Minnedosa and helping on
the farm as much as he could.
He loved his family dearly and was always willing to help
out in any way and always interested in his grandchildren. He
never missed an opportunity to proudly watch their events and
encourage them on.
Dad was predeceased by his wife, Lorna, his parents, Frederick and Bertha Wetteland, his mother and father-in-law, Dave
and Doris Bold, his brothers Seibert, Melvin and Lawrence, his
brothers-in-law, Oliver, Murray and Harley Bold and sister-inlaw Leona Gratton.
He is survived by his daughter, Brenda Deagnon (Rick),
his daughter Terry Foxton (Brian), his grandchildren David
Deagnon, Tyler Foxton and his partner Stephanie and Haley
Foxton and his great granddaughter, Kiara Deagnon. Also surviving are his sister, Phyllis Jones and her husband Leon, sisters-in-law Beatrice Wetteland, Margaret Bold and Joyce Bold
as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
Dad was loved by all who met him, young and old alike. The
Home Care workers as well as the staff at the Care Home often
commented about how well he was liked and his wonderful
sense of humour.
The funeral was held August 24th, 2016 from Danvers Bethel
Lutheran Church with Elgin Hall officiating.
Pallbearers were Rick Deagnon, Brian Foxton, David
Deagnon, Tyler Foxton, Dwain Wetteland, David Versluys and
Jim Collen.
Minnedosa Funeral Services were in care of arrangements.
“They say there is a reason, they say that time will heal,
but neither time nor reason will change the way I feel.
For no one knows the heartache that lies behind my smile,
no one knows how many times I have broken down and cried. I
want to tell you something so there won’t be any doubt;
you’re so wonderful to think of, but so hard to be without.”

Manitoba Participating
in National Inquiry
By RYAN THORPE

O

n August 30th, it was
announced that the
Manitoba government had
passed a council order affirming its participation in
the newly sanctioned National Inquiry into Missing
and Murdered Indigenous
Women and Girls.
The council’s decision
grants authority to the inquiry to analyze the work
and data already completed in the province, as well
as examine matters that
had previously been under
the exclusive jurisdiction
of the province.
“Like
most
Canadians,” said Justice Minister and Attorney General Heather Stefanson,
“our government’s hope is
that this national inquiry
will result in realistic and
meaningful changes that
will begin to address the
systemic causes of violence against indigenous
women and girls.
“The tragedy of missing and murdered women
is keenly felt in Manitoba
and is of vital and ongoing
public importance given
our province’s young and
growing Indigenous population. The critical work
of the national inquiry
must build upon the work
undertaken in Manitoba in
order to identify and better
understand and address
the systemic gaps that put
Indigenous women and
girls at risk.”
The inquiry will be
granted access to Manitoba inquest reports, reviews of the child welfare
system, as well as a 2016
report on the vulnerability
of marginalized Indigenous girls and women. Utilizing this data, as well as

the data gained from other
provinces and their own
independent
investigation, the inquiry is set to
issue a recommendations
report outlining concrete
and effective action to address the social problem of
missing and murdered indigenous women and girls
by the end of 2018.
The national inquiry
was officially announced
by the Liberal Government
on December 8th, 2015.
Despite only making up
four percent of Canada’s
female population, 16 per
cent of all women murdered in Canada over the
past 36 years have been
Indigenous. The amount
of Indigenous women and
girls who have gone missing or been murdered in
Canada over the past 40
years is not known - statistics range from 500 to
4,000.
“Throughout
our
consultations,” said Indigenous and Municipal
Relations Minister Eileen
Clarke, “we have heard
that the national inquiry
must be culturally respectful, emotionally supportive and must also reflect
the wisdom, experiences
and
recommendations
of the many individual
Manitobans, local families,
indigenous
community
leaders and relevant organizations who have contributed to our province’s
unique volume of experience on this issue.
“To support these expectations, Manitoba also
believes it will be important for the commissioners
of the national inquiry to
review the good work that
has already been done in
advance of the inquiry.”

Crop Residue Burning Program Implemented
By RYAN THORPE

A

s of August 1st, the
Manitoba Controlled
Crop Residue Burning Program has been implemented province wide.
Established in 1993,
the program places restrictions on the burning of crop
residue. The program runs
to November 15th and permits burning only in authorized municipalities during
specific hours.
“It’s been in place for
about twenty years,” said
Brian Wilson, a representative of Manitoba Agriculture. “Th e reason the
legislation is in place is
for air quality. There are
some conditions you get in
the fall where smoke just
doesn’t disperse.
“There is just not good

ventilation and you run the
risk with farmers burning
straw that you could end
up with an air quality problem. The program came in
because at the time it was
implemented there was absolutely a serious air quality
issue.”
While the program
is running, crop burning authorizations will be
released daily by 11 a.m.
based on smoke dispersion
conditions and weather.
Th ese authorizations will
indicate in which municipalities burning is permitted on that day, as well as
start and end times.
Depending on a number of various factors and
variables, burning may not
be permitted on certain
days. Night burning continues to be banned, which it

is year-round.
“Night time burning
continues to be banned
year around,” said Wilson.
“Because what happens at
night is you get that heavier
dense air where smoke just
doesn’t dissipate. So that’s
the reason why night time
burning is banned.
“We will specify when
burning is allowed and
when it is not, as well as
when fi res can start and
when they can end.”
Th e practice of crop
burning is quite common
with farming operations,
in order to help deal with
straw management problems. While Manitoba Agriculture respects the right
of farmers to engage in the
practice, they stress that it
must be balanced against
public health and safety.

Th e RCMP and environment officers enforce the
legislation. Individuals who
fail to comply with daily authorizations can face fines
up to $50,000. Daily authorizations can be found
on Manitoba Agriculture’s
website, or by contacting

them directly.
“I think overall farmers
recognize that they really
do need to be careful,” said
Wilson. “What they’re doing on their farming operations can impact urban residents and other residents.
So they know that if they do
