Be Aware..

Reports are being heard of some break-ins/thefts in our Town last weekend – Pipestone Avenue, Wilfred Street, Hill Avenue – to name the ones we’ve heard of to date. Items stolen were musical instruments (2 electronic accordions), amplifier, a vehicle, tool boxes, tools. Any unusual happenings/sightings in that period (Friday – Sunday) should be reported to the RCMP as soon as possible. There also have been reports of similar incidents at Kenosee. Check your properties – sheds, garages, etc. and lock if possible! And remember to lock your vehicles.

It was unfortunate that the “prep-meeting” scheduled for December 7th had to be cancelled, however we can’t fight the weatherman. The rescheduled date was December 15th – all businesses were urged to be represented for input as well as local governments (R.M.s and Town), etc. The more facts we can gather to make a strong (& hopefully effective) presentation to RBC officials on January 3 or 4, the better.

The committee reported the following:
Ø Petition signatures and letters are coming in but we want more – don’t slack off!
Ø We are seeing signatures from other centres – they are joining our “fight”.
Ø Again – and still – we are receiving contradictory information from RBC reps.
Ø There seems to be hesitation in giving out information we are asking for
Ø When questioned about some of their figures, they have no concrete answers.
Ø There is the feeling that we are being taken advantage of being in an economic slump at present (adding an extra kick when we’re already down).
Ø The committee are following up on a similar situation that happened to a town similar to us in the U.S. – they fought and WON!
Ø Contact is being made with others in our province facing the same “blow”.
Ø We cannot – and will not – give up – realizing the “ripple effect” the bank closing would have on our community.
Ø The reply calls/letters we are receiving tend to be very convincing. DON’T BE A SOFT TOUCH! Ask for proof of the figures they give! They have been known to have to “back-track” on some facts!

Please, Please, Please keep the letters/phone calls/emails going. We realize that we are in a very busy time of the year, but let’s not become a statistic – “Oh Wawota – that was a real ‘PUSH OVER’”.

Upcoming Elections

Voter Identification Matters

The purpose of the voter ID requirements is to maintain the integrity of local election processes. Your name and address must appear in some form on your voter identification documents. Bringing proper identification will ensure your voice is heard and will help your local election run as smoothly as possible.

Photo ID – Your BEST option to take to the polls

Acceptable photo identification is ID that is government-issued, valid and has your photo, name and address. If your identification does not meet these criteria it will not be recognized as an acceptable form of photo identification.

Examples include:

A valid Saskatchewan Driver’s Licence. (If you still have a two-piece licence, make sure you have both pieces).
A valid Saskatchewan ID card issued by SGI or any motor licence issuer. (Available for $10 or free for seniors).
Any other valid government issued photo ID issued by a Canadian government whether federal, provincial or municipal, or an agency of that government, so long as it includes your name and address.
