Northern Health Region Changes Health Card Policy

Friday, August 06, 2010 at 15:15

 

 

The Keewatin Yatthe Regional Health Authority is asking residents to bring their health cards with them when going in for treatment.

 

CEO Richard Petit says the new mandate, effective August 1st, is for the safety of the patients.

 

He explains that many people assume that doctors and nurses know them -- and while that's true most of the time, mistakes can still happen.

 

Petit says more and more nurses are from out-of-province and don't necessarily know everyone in the community.

 

He adds the health region is also trying to meet standards set by Accreditation Canada.

 

Petit advises anyone without a health card to contact the government for a new one or call the health region.

Film On Race Relations In La Loche Making Noise

Friday, August 06, 2010 at 15:08

 

 

A Regina filmmaker is hoping his documentary will give people a new perspective on issues in their own backyard.

 

Kent Morrison is part of the group of University of Regina journalism students that made "Denendeh" -- a film about race relations in the northern Saskatchewan community of La Loche.

 

Morrison directed the film and he says the whole crew learned a lot.

 

"Denendeh" won the best small budget documentary at the Human Rights Documentary Festival in Toronto.

 

It will also appear at the Montreal World Film Festival at the end of the month.

Members of the Fond du Lac firefighting team will represent the province later this month at the National Aboriginal Firefighting Championships.

 

Fond du Lac edged out Black Lake last month at the provincial competition in Sturgeon Lake.

 

This year's national competition is being held in Merritt, B.C.

 

The participants will showcase various skills related to putting out a fire in a structure or house.

 

Some of the excercises involve rescuing someone from a fire, as well as getting into a house properly.
