Cheers and Jeers for Nov. 26


Cheers to Craig Bird for doing wonderful presentations honouring our veterans. It’s our duty to preserve this history, to share with future generations. We can thank our veterans-soldiers of yesterday, today and in the future for all we have.

Cheers to everyone who packed a shoebox for the Operation Christmas Child campaign this year. It’s great to see people still thinking of others during these tough times.


Cheers to all of the great vendors at the Estevan Farmers’ Market Christmas sale on Saturday. It’s a great way to support local businesses while finishing your Christmas shopping.


Cheers to the Estevan Kinsmen Club for still selling Christmas trees this year. And the money from these tree sales will go to initiatives in the community.


Cheers to the City of Estevan for coming up with the Backroads Audio tour. It helps you realize how many interesting things you can find in this region, and the technology makes it easy to follow.


Cheers to everybody who is stepping up to help those in need in the region this Christmas. It’s a tough time for so many out there, but they haven’t forgotten others.


Cheers to hunters who follow the rules and ask for permissions to hunt on other people’s land.



Jeers to people at the Affinity Place walking track who refuse to cover their nose with a mask. They might as well put it on their butt for all the good it’s doing.


Jeers to the provincial government for mandating the masks. If they want to put people out of work then all the government employees should take a 50 per cent wage cut and have a loss of income like everyone else.


Jeers to the tree branches that are still encroaching on the sidewalks around town. People don’t enjoy getting brushed by branches when out for a walk, especially when there’s snow on branches. No excuse for them not being trimmed.
