As the weather turns chilly and the decorations begin to appear on Parliament Hill and on the homes in my neighborhood, it is clear that the holidays are right around the corner. This time of year is busy for all of us, catching up with family and friends, and appreciating those making a difference in our community.

Dr. Netha Dyck is one of these individuals, receiving the Ethel Johns Award for her work launching the Bachelor of Psychiatric Nursing Degree program at Saskatchewan Polytechnic. I also met with David Arnot, Chief Commissioner of the Saskatchewan Human Rights Commission.  I learned about his incredible work to support educators supporting children.  I also met with other individuals who are making a positive contribution to their industries in Saskatchewan.

Two weeks ago, I attended many Remembrance Day services across the city. I was honoured to take part in many of these services remembering Canada's fallen, and impressed by the dedication Canadian`s have for remembering those we have lost.

I am continually grateful to represent Saskatoon-Grasswood in the House of Commons.

Kevin Waugh, MP

Next year, 2017, marks the 150th anniversary of Confederation, however, unlike previous governments, the current government has decided not to continue the tradition of awarding commemorative medals to Canadian citizens during milestone years. Because of this, I have decided to recognize individuals in my own riding with the Saskatoon-Grasswood Canada 150 Citizen Award.

To nominate an individual please visit my office for an application, or visit my webpage for an online application or a printable copy.

Dr. Netha Dyck, Saskatchewan Polytechnic was the recipient of the Ethel Johns Award at the 2016 CASN (Canadian Association of Schools of Nursing).  As Dean, School of Nursing, Saskatchewan Polytechnic, Dr. Dyck provides innovative leadership in the delivery of 16 award winning nursing education programs to more than 3,600 students across the province and beyond.  She was instrumental in launching Saskatchewan Polytechnic's first degree, the Bachelor of Psychiatric Nursing Degree program.  Congratulations Netha for being such an exceptional leader and we're so proud that you reside in Saskatoon-Grasswood!!

Located at 520-524 11th Street East, this brick apartment building was built in 1912 and is an example of neo-classical architechture.  Built by cousins James and Walter T. Arrand Contractors' Company during Saskatoon's building boom, the cousins intended to live in the building themselves once construction was complete.  The building is one of the few remaining boomtown buildings left in Saskatoon.  The cousins were also contractors for other projects in Saskatoon including the Broadway Bridge, The University Memorial Gates, the Saskatoon School for the Deaf, and the Capitol Theatre.  The building received Municipal Property Designation status in 1989.
