Cheers and Jeers for June 18


Cheers to everyone who was involved with the Grad Cruise in Estevan on Friday night. Thanks for creating a special night for the grads that they’ll never forget.

Cheers to all of the businesses and residences that were so well decorated for the cruise, even if they weren’t on the cruise route. The kids loved seeing all of the messages.


Cheers to the Estevan Motor Speedway for finding a way to have their season-opening program. Hopefully fans can be in the grandstands within the next few weeks.


Cheers to municipal councils that have opted not to have a mill rate increase this year, despite the challenging financial times they are facing.


Cheers to the reopening of playground equipment, skate parks and amenities such as Fresh Air Fitness, as they’ll give us yet another chance to get some exercise.


Cheers to everyone who supported the Virtual Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics. It was good to see that Estevan was the provincial leader for both individuals and teams.



Jeers to the Ministry of the Environment for implementing a blanket regulation discontinuing replacement big game tags in which the meat is unusable, and for the lack of communication with hunters regarding this regulation.


Jeers to the provincial government for the changes being made to graduation ceremonies. It’s astounding they would make this change now after so many grad dates were cancelled, and after all the schools already made plans.


Jeers to the unnecessary closure of the Arcola Health Centre’s emergency room. It’s great that it’s open again, and Oxbow will be open soon, but it shouldn’t have happened in the first place.
