Cheers and Jeers for Nov. 19



article continues below

Cheers to the Estevan branch of the Royal Canadian Legion, and other legion branches, for finding a way to host a Remembrance Day ceremony this year. Regardless of whether it’s in person or through a digital ceremony, we will remember them.


Cheers to the Estevan Bears U18 AAA hockey team for a couple of milestones. They have their first wins in franchise history, and they had their first-ever home game.


Cheers to the Santa Claus Parade in Midale. It helped a lot of people get in the Christmas spirit.


Cheers to the teachers in our schools for the resilience they have shown to instruct our kids this school year. During a time with so many changes and uncertainty, you know you can count on them to care and to do their best.


Cheers to Larry Preddy for his many years of dedicated service to Woodlawn Regional Park. He definitely earned the award he received from the Saskatchewan Regional Parks.


Cheers to the Community Hamper Association for continuing to help others every year at Christmas time through hampers and the Angel Tree program. It looks like they will have a busy year this year, so please help them out. And help out the Kinettes PJ Project, too.




Jeers to Walmart for bringing back self-checkouts. In a city that has already been decimated by the economic crash and the loss of energy sector jobs, they’ve opted to tell us they’re more interested in making money for themselves than helping people feed their families. Also who’s cleaning those stations?


Jeers to the city’s landfill. Many adjectives could be used to describe it, but sanitary is not one of them. Maybe outdated would be a better fit.


Jeers to those complaining about having to wear masks when in businesses and other locations. Evidently keeping other people safe is not their priority.
