Cars and Saskatchewan places share names - Regina Leader-PostWednesday, July 05, 2017
Ranger, 150 kms northwest of Prince Albert, was a compact Ford pickup truck from the 1980s to the 2000s.And then there is Peerless, a hamlet just south of Goodsoil, about 60 km northwest of Meadow Lake. Peerless is also the name of a luxury car produced from 1900 to 1931 that competed with Pierce-Arrow and Packard.However, the community of Peerless was not named after the car — but it was named after an automotive-related product. The name came from a brand of oil marketed by the British-American Oil Company.In the book What’s in a Name — The Story Behind Saskatchewan Place Names, E.T. Russell writes that a local storekeeper was trying to get a post office and had to suggest a name. Russell says a Mrs. Francis Hankey of nearby Goodsoil wrote: “It so happened that a B.A. gasoline truck was driving by, and they sell an oil by the name of Peerless, and this was advertised on the truck in big letters. Well, there was the answer to the storekeeper’s problem. Why not call that place ‘Peerless’? Other residents agreed that the name was fine, and so the name stuck.” So it turns out that a good name for a car — or a motor oil — can also make a good name for a community, and vice versa.Let's block ads!

The Tuesday news briefing: An at-a-glance survey of some top stories - Nanaimo News NOW Friday, June 02, 2017
Saskatchewan has been told that one of the victims was shot 11 times. Dayne Fontaine, who was 17, was killed along with his younger brother at a house in La Loche in January 2016. The hearing in Meadow Lake, Sask., has been told that Dayne said: "Don't shoot me" and "I don't want to die" before he was shot. His 13-year-old brother Drayden was shot twice in the face and the head. The shooter then went to the high school where he killed a teacher and an aide, and wounded seven other people. The teen has pleaded guilty to two counts of first-degree murder, two counts of second-degree murder and seven counts of attempted murder. He can't be identified under the Youth Criminal Justice Act because he was 17 at the time of the shooting. Two weeks have been set aside to determine if the killer should be sentenced as a youth or an adult.———GREENS PLAN 'CHESS MOVES' AFTER B.C. VOTE: While British Columbia's Liberals and New Democrats are gridlocked as they await the final ballot count from last week's tight election, the Green party is setting priorities to use the leverage its three newly elected members achieved. The splintered election result could leave the upstart Greens with the balance of power in a minority government, and leader Andrew Weaver is pondering a series of chess moves that could shake the direction of the province. Green party deputy leader Matt Toner says they are looking for specific proposals from the Liberals and New Democrats on electoral and campaign-finance reforms before supporting either party in the legislature.

Two killed, three injured in Meadow Lake rollover: Prevention work needs to continue, say responders - Saskatoon StarPhoenixFriday, September 02, 2016
Meadow Lake Fire Chief Neil Marsh and fellow emergency responders did everything they could to help after a single vehicle rollover left two young men dead and three other people injured.
“It was pitch dark,” Marsh said in an interview Sunday. “In general, it’s always about focusing on the job at hand and getting it done.”
Marsh, as well as Meadow Lake paramedics Chad McCord and Steven Pollock hope education measures are preventing even more tragedies, but there’s obviously far more work to be done.
“When we see situations where young people make bad decisions, it’s hard,” said Pollock, one of the coordinators of the innovative Party Program.
“I got involved with the program because I got tired of seeing kids on my stretchers.”
At approximately 2:40 a.m. Saturday, RCMP say officers were driving to an unrelated call down Highway 4 a few kilometres north of Meadow Lake when they spotted a vehicle about 60 meters off the road.
They came upon a 22-year-old man and a 15-year-old girl insid...
‘Write me soon. Stay safe’: A story of Canada’s opioid crisis, told in letters from prison - The Globe and MailWednesday, March 27, 2019
Herd. His mother and sisters called him Manie – little man – because he was the only boy in the family. Story continues below advertisement He was torn away from his home on Saskatchewan's Peepeekisis First Nation to be educated in church-run residential schools, emerging scarred by sexual and physical abuse. For years, he would cross the street to avoid passing a Catholic church. A skilled outdoorsman who liked to fish for pike and hunt deer, beaver, bear and moose, he fell into a pattern of drinking, drug taking and fighting that kept him behind bars for most of his adult life. Pictures in an album show Mr. Daniels as an adult; a tattoo on Ms. Barber's back, below, shows him as a child. Tijana Martin/The Globe and Mail Moira Barber, his common-law wife for 13 years, met him when she was dealing drugs in Guelph, Ont., and needed someone to collect money for her. She asked for the hardest, meanest dude in town. But Mr. Daniels had another side, Ms. Barber says. He was a keen artist who sometimes drew tattoos for a living. He loved roughhousing with her grandchildren, rolling around with them gleefully until the long hair that stretched down his back was a tangled mess. Mr. Kell grew up in London, Ont., 90 minutes down the 401 highway from Mr. Daniels. He started using drugs when he was a teenager. Before long, he was dealing cannabis and injecting hard stuff. As he puts it now, he would keep using until he ended up in the back of a police car. Between some 20 incarcerations, he tried over and over to get clean. He suffered several overdoses, coming close to death. In Spencer Kell's dining room, angel and devil portraits drawn by Mr. Daniels hang behind him. Blair Gable Mr. Kell and Mr. Daniels forged their friendship during two stints sharing a cell at Maplehurst. On the range at "the Hurst," they won respect for their experience and toughness. Mr. Daniels had an ugly temper. He could flip on you in a second, Mr. Kell says. But he stuck up for the underdogs, especially the new guys. Mr. Kell looked up to Mr. D...
