In his annual Christmas message Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe noted 2021 has been another challenging year for the province…..
“It's been humbling and inspiring to witness so many selfless acts of courage, generosity and love.
Here's just one example. In September, a fire destroyed the home of Delisle area farmer Tyson McKenzie. Tyson lost everything. Within hours there was an outpouring of support from the community. Some people offered generous gifts of cash . A neighbour hauled Tyson's cattle free of charge . Another neighbour dropped by with a $1,000 gift certificate for a clothing store. An online silent auction was organized. 130 items went up for sale everything from homemade pickles to a hand stitched quilt to chainsaws . $36,000 was raised to help pay for the construction of a new house. Karla Poletz, who helped with the auction, said that's just what you do in a small town. In times of trouble, you are there for your neighbours. It's the Saskatchewan way. And it is what Jesus taught. “
Moe wishes everyone a Merry Christmas on behalf of this family and his colleagues in the Saskatchewan Legislature.
