SaskScapes – with guest Harold Hague

It’s the final episode of 2015! Happy holidays to you all.  Kevin Power is joined by WWII veteran Harold Hague, who, at the young age of 94 shows no sign of slowing down. Harold shares some heroic tales from his time serving overseas, reminding us, that in war, nobody wins.  Harold is joined by his wife Jan who is an artist in her own right and certainly has enough to keep herself busy during her own retirement. Regina residents will know Harold as the owner of Loggie’s Shoes, part of the downtown retail landscapes for years, and now home to Regina’s Creative City Centre and the Hague Gallery.

SaskScapes – with guest Gary Edwards

Gary Edwards is a Cultural Support Provider for Residential School Survivors at All Nations Hope in Regina. A survivor himself, Gary was rounded up by a gunboat and issued to a residential school in Ile Ste. Croix at the age of 2. Gary talks about his experience, painting pictures with his words- his phrasing almost poetic. He speaks of his journey to healing, the Indigenous way of life, and the many guides who have supported him on his path. It is my hope, as it is Gary’s, that someone hears this episode who needs to hear it in order to help in their own healing, As Gary says: “Let’s hope that one day this conversations never happens”.
