A Saskatchewan man has been arrested and charged with manufacturing firearms following an investigation on July 10.

Around 4 p.m., the Regina Police Service (RPS) crime reduction team, along with RCMP, conducted a search warrant on a residence in Yellow Grass, according to a release from RPS.

Officers found over 30 firearms, some that were non-restricted, restricted, and prohibited, as well as boxes of various gun parts, numerous boxes of ammunition, a 3D printer with filament, 3D printed firearms, 3D printed prohibited magazines, a prohibited muzzle suppressor, and several data storage devices and computers.

A 42-year-old man from Yellow Grass was charged with two counts of careless storage of a firearm contrary to regulations, possession of a firearm knowing its possession was unauthorized, possession of a prohibited device knowing its possession is unauthorized, possession of a prohibited firearm with ammunition, and weapons manufacturing.

He made his first appearance in Provincial Court on July 18.

Yellow Grass is located about 88 kilometres southeast of Regna.

Saskatchewan RCMP have arrested a man for stealing 14 calves from a farm over the course of three incidents.

On June 28, a livestock investigator with the Saskatchewan RCMP received a report from Livestock Services of Saskatchewan about a potential suspicious livestock transaction, according to an RCMP news release.

Moosomin RCMP and the livestock investigator found that a man stole 14 calves from a farm in the rural municipality of Silverwood, Sask. and attempted to sell them.

On July 12, a 34-year-old man was arrested at a residence near Whitewood, Sask. He is charged with three counts of theft of cattle over $5,000, three counts of possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000, and three counts of trafficking property obtained by crime over $5,000.

He is scheduled to make a court appearance in Moosomin on Aug. 20.

Seven calves have since been recovered and returned to the farm, RCMP said.

Demand has doubled over the past two years at the Moose Jaw food bank but donations have not been keeping up.

The food bank has now been forced to cut back on the amount of food each household receives.

Jason Moore, Moose Jaw Food Bank’s executive director, said that the increased cause of living seems to be causing more stress on families who don’t normally access the service.

“We are noticing more and more full time employed people accessing our food bank that didn’t access the food bank and that shouldn’t necessarily be accessing the food bank in such a wealthy country. So there’s a problem here that we need to fix,” he said.

There are 800 households that rely on the Moose Jaw Food Bank monthly, double the number from two years ago.

“I’m a family support worker with a local organization and families that we work with really rely on these donations,” said Mikayla Dinnell, a support worker.

There’s even talk of closing temporarily. Volunteers are concerned for those they help.

“Just being able to help these families and make a big impact on the community. I want to see that keep going,” said volunteer Joshua Kelly.

The NDP visited the food bank to assess the situation.

“The most shocking part of this is 40 per cent of the clients accessing the food bank are children,” said NDP MLA Meara Conway.

Brian Sykora and his girlfriend have been using the food back since their harrowing escape from a 2023 house fire that claimed two lives.

“I have nothing. Virtually me and my girlfriend have nothing so we come here to get food from the food bank and it’s needed. There’s so many people here that need the food,” he said.

For now, Moose Jaw Food Bank clients will receive one food hamper per month rather than two. It’s hoped that will stretch supplies sufficiently to keep the doors open until food donations pick up in the fall.

The family of Isabella “Bella Brave” Thomson is encouraging people to wear pink in her honour on Friday.

The 10-year-old died on July 14  after she was put into a medically induced coma after a “rapid fibrosis-like deterioration” of her lungs.

Please keep her name on your lips, her memories alive and her bravery in your hearts. Please share with us every detail of how she touched your life or kept you brave, Bella’s mom Kyla wrote in a post on Sunday.

Waves of support flew in on social media  after Bella’s death, with people sharing what she meant to them.

Kyla requested that people wear pink on Friday in memory of her daughter and share photos and stories to “keep her light going.”

Saskatchewan had the highest increase in farmland value in the country in 2023, according to a report from Farm Credit Canada (FCC).

The FCC report shows Saskatchewan farmland increased by an average of 15.7 per cent last year. Land in northeast and east-central Saskatchewan rose almost 21 per cent. The average price of pasture land shot up 13 per cent in 2023.

“The value of land has come up. In certain areas I think were catching up to where land prices should be,” said Kelly Reimer, who farms near Tisdale.

Tyler Badinski, owner of farm real estate company Serca Realty, said there are a few factors causing prices to climb.

“Some outside investment, but mostly it’s high cash receipts, some interest in farming and Saskatchewans land values having to catch up to the rest of Canada,” he said.

The FCC report said another factor is that there’s not enough land to meet demand.

“We seem to see a little bit more coming up for sale with the values increasing, but there is still definitely buyers outweighing sellers,” Badinski, said.

Bill Prybylski, vice-president of Agricultural Producers Association of Saskatchewan (APAS), said the increasing value is a benefit for retiring farmers, but a challenge for those looking to expand.

“For retiring farmers knowing that their asset is increasing is giving them some security and knowing that when they do decide to retire, their lifes work will be quite rewarding,” Prybylski said.

“On the other hand, its certainly going to be a challenge for young producers in particular, but anybody thats looking to expand their operations.”

Farmer Philip Hounjet agrees there are benefits and drawbacks when it comes to the uptick in prices.

“It depends on where you are in the life cycle of your farm operation. If youre wanting to buy you want it to be affordable, but if youre looking to sell then you want it to be high ... it’s pros and cons, right,” Hounjet said.

Farmer Carter Reed says that sometimes you have to “bite the bullet.”

“The price of land is never going to go down, so it’s only going to go up,” he said.

“Its almost like you just have to bite the bullet at some point because its an investment.”

Prybylski said making that investment can be possible — with some patience.

“With a little bit of patience and some good planning and a sound business model, there’s going to be opportunities,” he said.

A former prospective Saskatchewan Party nominee has apologized for putting a student in blackface.

Meghan Mayer was running to be the Sask. Party nominee for the Prince Albert Carlton constituency. She withdrew from the race a week after announcing her candidacy.

This decision came after recognizing my past actions and weighing the needs and sensibilities of the community, Mayer told CTV News in an emailed statement.

Mayer is the lead pastor of Embassy Church in Prince Albert. She used to work at Regent Academy — a private Christian school operated by Embassy Church. The school was shut down in 2024.

In 2014, I directed a school play in which one of the actors was in blackface. At the time, I was not aware of the offensive and racist nature of blackface, Mayer wrote in the statement.

I now recognize that darkening your face, due to its racist history, is always unacceptable. I deeply apologize to the actor involved for my ignorance of this issue and endeavour to continue to educate myself.

Lina Rigby, whose son was in the play, said she was shocked to see a child in blackface.

There was an Indigenous student involved in the play that was made up in blackface. It was extremely racist and offensive, Rigby told CTV News.

It makes me feel sick when I think about it.

Rigbys husband, Jeremy Rigby, made a complaint to the Ministry of Education and the video of the Christmas play was removed from YouTube.

I couldnt believe it was real, Jeremy said.

I was very concerned about how it was normalizing this behaviour for the kids. I think the fact that you had an auditorium full of adults who were laughing at this and thought it was hilarious, I found very disturbing.

The couple is calling for better background checks for potential politicians.

I think the fact that theres literally a letter to the Ministry of Education sitting in the government archives somewhere detailing this racist experience that she created. It would have been pretty easy for them to discover it, so I think the process of background checks wasnt done, Jeremy said.

Patrick Bundrock, the executive director of the Sask. Party, said background checks are done on all Saskatchewan Party candidates for nomination.

As Meghan Mayer has decided not to seek a Saskatchewan Party nomination, the party has no further comment to make, Bundrock said.

Mayer was looking to replace Prince Albert Carltons longtime MLA Joe Hargrave. After about eight years in the position, Hargrave announced he would not seek re-election in October.

I am confident that stepping aside is the right choice at this time and I remain committed to serving the community in the future, Mayer said.

A Saskatchewan not-for-profit is reeling after vandals inflicted thousands of dollars of damages at the Good Spirit Scout Camp.

The break-in occurred just after the Victoria Day long weekend, according to information released by Saskatchewan RCMP on July 16.

“Someone came in and did a horrible vandalism act, they broke almost every window, busted down a couple doors, they expelled all the fire extinguishers and stole them,” explained Kent Latimer, camp administrator for Good Spirit Scout Camp.

Latimer said the cost to fix everything totals around $20,000.

A Go-Fund Me is in place to help cover the not-for-profit group.

“We’re about half way there right now, the community and surrounding area has helped us incredibly,” he expressed.

“We’re grateful for everyone who has contributed money. We’ve had donations come from as far way as Phoenix, Arizona.”

Around 12:35 p.m. on May 23, Canora RCMP received a report of a break-in and mischief at the camp. An investigation found that an unknown individual or individuals broke into several buildings at the camp and caused extensive damage.

The Good Spirit Scout Camp is utilized for an annual overnight camping program for youth in the region, which brings in about 400 kids throughout the year.

“We had to cancel one weekend camp already. The camp is generally used in the fall and winter,” Latimer explained.

“It hasn’t affected the summer activities much, but if we don’t get it up and rolling it will affect many kids.”

A group of volunteers will be helping to repair the campsite on Saturday, July 20. Latimer said having support from the community has been great.

“Any donations from the community will be greatly appreciated,” he expressed.

“If anybody knows any information at all on this, please contact Crime Stoppers or Canora RCMP. If anyone knows anything please step up and call because if people get away with this there will be no end to it.”

Good Spirit Scout Camp is located around 220 kilometres northeast of Regina.
