Our Winters Beg Good Red Wines

Jill Childerhose, Doug Reichel Wine Marketing

The warmth, spice, and depth of red wine is a lovely foil to the cold rigidity we experience in the prairie winter months. Red wines often boast warm tones like nuts, tobacco, and cocoa. They also can be reminiscent of spiced or preserved fruits, recalling days past. Most importantly, the flavours of many reds are the perfect companions to the foods we eat seasonally during this time: hearty meats, roasted vegetables, rich stews, soups, and even decadent sweets.

What is Human Trafficking

By Cst. Tina Platford, Crime Reduction Unit, Royal Canadian Mounted Police

Some people think human trafficking is an international crime but it is happening right here in Saskatchewan. A human trafficker is “any person, who recruits, transports, transfers, receives, holds, conceals or harbours a person, or exercises control, direction or influence over a person for the purpose of exploiting them”, and this does not necessarily involve the movement of a victim.

Human trafficking is a low risk/high reward activity, and in Canada, it is estimated a trafficker can generate up to $336,000 per year from a single sex trafficking victim...

NO, Change isn't Good Enough

George Marshall, CEO, Service Hospitality

2009 was arguably the worst year for health and safety in the history of the hotel industry in Saskatchewan.  For the fourth straight year, injuries exceeded 580 and for the second straight year, direct costs of injuries exceeded $2.8 million.  In 2010, Service Hospitality issued a challenge to the hotel industry.  We formed a best practice group for the hotel industry and 43 of the largest hotels in the province committed to implementing and improving their safety management systems.  Although we helped to facilitate the process, you did the work.  The results have been extraordinary.

CEO Message: The Changing Face of Tourism

Jim Bence, SHHA President & CEO

Our “need” for diversity has become a provincial imperative.  Provincially our coffers are taking a pounding for a variety of reason, all of which we have bemoaned for the last 4 years. Oil and gas slumping, mining taking a huge hit and now a federal government that seems determined to prevent much needed pipelines from being built.

Ok, so what does that mean? What do we do? How do we deal with the hand that we’ve been dealt? Well, as painful as it is to hear or realize, we evolve or we die. There is no other way to say it and for those of us in the hospitality/tourism world, we have been dealing with this stark reality for the last number of years.

CANNABIS RETAILING in Saskatchewan

Four years ago, we started discussions with the Saskatchewan government regarding Saskatchewan Hotel & Hospitality Association (SHHA) members, particularly Retail Store Permit holders, being allowed to enter the cannabis retail market. We were very encouraged by the recent announcement that cannabis retail permits would be available throughout the province. Retail permits would be granted based on an application process. The number of permits in the province will be unlimited and there is no restrictions on how many can operate in a community.

So what does that mean for you?
