Cars and Saskatchewan places share names - Regina Leader-PostWednesday, July 05, 2017
Anglia, just northwest of Rosetown, was a small British-made Ford offered from 1939 to 1967.Breeze, near Lampman, was a compact Plymouth in the 1990s.Cavalier, 40 km northwest of North Battleford, was a compact Chevrolet in the 1980s to the 2000s.Consul, in the extreme southwestern corner of Saskatchewan, was a compact British-made Ford from the 1950s to the 1970s.Falcon, in the Wolseley area, was a compact Ford during the 1960s.Imperial, about 140 km northwest of Regina, was the name of the high-end Chrysler from 1926 to 1989.Lancer, a village 100 km northwest of Swift Current, was a name used by Dodge for various models in the 1950s, 1960s and 1980s.Marlin, 50 km north of North Battleford, was a full-size fastback sold by American Motors in the mid-1960s.Mayfair, 50 km northeast of North Battleford, was a Plymouth model in the 1950s.Pinto, just east of Roche Percee in the southeast, was Ford’s subcompact of the 1970s and ’80s.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!

‘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...
