“At this stage we’re focused on the practise and training and development side of things,” Landry said. “If it gets to the stage of the season being cancelled or the season being delayed further, we’ll be in communication with the Regina Pats and the Western Hockey League and the Bedard family to make a decision that is best for everyone involved.”

Bedard had been training in Vancouver when a delay to the WHL season prompted Newport to seek other options.

Why Sweden? Because it presents an opportunity for high-level training in a team environment alongside older players, which isn’t readily available at home under current COVID-19 restrictions.

Sweden is also a world leader in developing NHL players.

“HV71 is one of the more progressive organizatio...

Regina schools preparing for higher demand on mental health supports

Creating opportunities for staff to check in with one another and talk through any anxieties or fears they are experiencing is a key piece of that strategy. Providing similar social connection points for students to talk to staff about any challenges they are facing is also important in quashing feelings of isolation.

“The antidote to anxiety and isolation is the development of social connections,” Enion said.

How those social connections are fostered will have to look different to follow health and safety guidelines, however. Enion said RPS is looking at ways to do this without holding its normal group sessions, whether that be one-on-one mentorship or phone calls.

The Regina Catholic School Division (RCSD) is also preparing to see more staff and students r...

Dukart retiring after 40 years in the golf industry

“People at golf clubs don’t like change,’’ he says. “When you impose all of this change on a membership and their guests, you’re opening yourself up for all kinds of things. You’re also trying to do that and to be mindful of the importance of driving the bottom line.”

Dukart knows all about golf in Regina, having grown up in the Queen City while golfing at the Wascana.

After winning the 1974 junior men’s club title and men’s club championships in 1978 and 1980, he played in four mini-tour pro events in Arizona through the financial backing of some Wascana members.

“I didn’t play that poorly, but not good enough to be a tournament player,” he recalls.

Dukart returned to his hometown, landing a job at the Royal Regina Golf Club as an assi...

Article content

Quarterbacks Luke Falk (Washington State) and Jack Abraham (Southern Mississippi) are among the 10 players on the Saskatchewan Roughriders’ negotiation list whose names were released by the CFL on Thursday.

Even though the 2020 season has been cancelled, the nine CFL teams are required to reveal the names of 10 players on the negotiation list as part of league policy. Teams can have up to 45 players on their negotiation list, which is constantly in flux.

Falk, 25, was selected in the sixth round (199th overall) of the 2018 NFL draft by the Tennessee Titans.

He dressed for four pre-season games with the Titans before being released after the pre-season. The Miami Dolphins claimed him on waivers before releasing him on May 1, 2019.

The next day, Falk (6-foot-4, 215 pounds...

Nutrien has been fined $150,000 for a workplace incident that left an employee seriously injured at its Rocanville potash mine in 2018.

Nutrien, operating as Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan Inc., pleaded guilty in Moosomin Provincial Court on Sept. 17 to contravening Occupational Health and Safety Regulations, according to a news release issued by the Ministry of Labour Relations and Workplace Safety on Thursday.

Vanstone: Dream project finally became reality in 2006

لیدر اسپات | No comments

Article content continued

After Saskatchewan lost 23-20 to Ottawa in 1976 — a game that I attended with my dear mother — the Roughriders did not make the CFL playoffs again until 1988.

The following year, they actually won a Grey Cup, thanks to a Dave Ridgway field goal that gave Saskatchewan a 43-40 victory over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats at SkyDome (now the Rogers Centre) in Toronto.

I attended that game, strictly as an observer, on Nov. 26, 1989 — the 23rd anniversary of the Roughriders’ landmark Grey Cup victory.

Even then, I maintained a curiosity about the one championship-clinching victory that I could not recount from first-hand experience.

Thanks to my dream job, I had a licence to do a deep dive into 1966.

It was déjà vu, in a sense.

As a teenager, I frequently visited t...

Mitchell is no radical

On Sept. 11, Justice Graeme Mitchell struck down park bylaws that outlawed Tristen Durocher’s Walking with Our Angels Camp. Two days later, Justice Mitchell attended a feast honouring the end of Tristen’s ceremony.

Many people — myself included — are celebrating Justice Mitchell’s decision as a courageous, principled one. Others are energetically criticizing Justice Mitchell. Two bad charges have been laid against Justice Mitchell: That he’s some kind of radical activist, and that he should not have attended the feast and met with Tristen.

Justice Mitchell is hardly a radical...

“It’s more of a futuristic, high-tech feel to our facilities. Laser Quest’s themes that they have are nice, but they might be a little bit dated. So our intention is to kind of bring the facility into the 21st century and make things a little bit more exciting,” said McCullough.

Saskatchewan Polytechnic partnering with Lighthouse Labs to offer new tech programs

“The intense boot camps are intended to take people with skills in technology and really ratchet up their skills and ability in that tech space, and the introductory programs are more of a slower, part-time based program that gives people the introductory skills to get a career started,” said Carter.

To gain admission to the boot camps, prospective students will need to complete a technical skills test and interview. No prior experience is required for the introductory programs. While the programming will be offered remotely to start, Carter said the school will look at options for in-person classes once the COVID-19 pandemic has passed.

Saskatchewan’s growing tech sector has been facing a labour shortage for some time, and Carter is hoping the new programs ...
