The Week of December 9 to 15, 2007

Willow Ptarmigan (Lagopus lagopus)
December 10, 2007
by: Timothy W. Shire
LaRonge: I had always associated the arctic grouse with the Northwest Territories or Yukon but it seems they also like Saskatchewan. These guys were on Lac LaRonge enjoying their winter vacation in the South.
The Greenwater report
December 10, 2007
by: Gerald Crawford
Saskatoon: It seems like the Crawfords are settling in sorting out the subcultures from Foam Lake, Wynyard and many parts of northeastern Saskatchewan who now make their home in Saskatoon. But Gerald works in an ice condition and fishing report to keep us up to date on things at the park.
Tisdale Post Office offers free slip and slide zone
December 10, 2007
by: Timothy W. Shire
Tisdale: No change from last week. With only a light dusting of snow during the night the situation in front of the post office today was totally unacceptable.
Winter wonderland
December 11, 2007
by: Timothy W. Shire
Highway #2: This winter's snow has truly dressed up the forest between LaRonge and Prince Albert. I made the trip up to LaRonge Friday and back Monday and here are some pictures taken along the way.
Still standing
December 12, 2007
by: Gordon MacKinnon
North Central Saskatchewan: Almost on a monthly basis bits and pieces of Saskatchewan history are disappearing. These pictures were taken this fall and show a few examples of things still standing that were once the focus of their communities at one time.
That city look
December 13, 2007
Images by: Matthew Shire
Regina: Matthew takes us along with him as he drives down the Lewvan or what we all still call Pasqua Street in Regina. The pictures tell us about the city and the character of its cityscape.
Why China and India laugh at Stephen Harper's climate targets
December 14, 2007
by: Eugene Parks
Victoria B.C.: Canada has been condemned at the Bali conference for leading the United States side of things in washing out meaningful climate targets. Our Prime Minister reflects his Alberta and pro-American stance to the shame of his country.
