The arena affectionately known as the 'crushed can' will soon be living up to it's name, bulldozers are on-site for the demolition of the Moose Jaw Civic Centre.
Dozens of people in Moose Jaw turned out for a final farewell to the former home of the Warriors hockey team.
Bill Babbey is the developer for the new mall planned on the site he says for the people who came out expecting to see the old hockey rink flattened in one morning will have to wait. Babbey admitted it could take up to two months to finish the demolition.

More than 100 Canadian and American
veterans of the Afghanistan, Bosnia and Iraq conflicts will be arriving at the
John G. Diefenbaker International Airport in Saskatoon today.

Lorne Avenue in Saskatoon is set to re-open this weekend, but the president of Early's Farm and Garden Centre is holding his applause until it actually happens.
Spencer Early's business is located on Lorne Avenue and he said he has lost a significant amount of money since the road was closed as part of the Circle Drive South expansion project.
"It would be close to a million dollars in sales," said Early who estimates he lost about half a million dollars last year and expects the same this year.
When you look at the waiting list at Regina Public Library it would seem that the demand for 'Fifty Shades of Grey' is just as hot as the book itself.
The hottest title and possibly the most 'risky' title of the summer is now available at Regina Public Library.
The erotic best-selling novel by British author E.L. James has grabbed attention for sexual scenes involving bondage, discipline and dominance/submissive relationship.
It is assumed that when a child is placed in foster care, they are being taken away from harm and no longer at risk.
But a University of Saskatchewan researcher says kids experience abuse and neglect within the system because of the policies in place.
"I think we can all agree that a child who has moved ten, twenty, thirty times in care, that that's unethical," said associate professor Caroline Tait, a medical anthropologist who studies the role of ethics for children in foster care.
During the summer months, construction signs and pylons in Saskatoon are hard to
miss, but some drivers are ignoring them.
"Motorists are choosing to ignore the barriers and the signs and are driving through the construction zones," said Pat Hyde, manager of the City of Saskatoon's public works branch.
That is creating dangerous situations for both workers at the sites and the drivers, including one case Hyde said almost ended very badly.
In reaction to the disturbing discovery of razor blades embedded in the water slide of a public pool, the City of Regina is increasing security.
The majority of outdoor pools will close for the season on August 28. With this new threat and one week left in the season the city’s security’s service has been asked to double the amount of nightly checks on public pools.
Chris Holden is the director of community services he doesn’t expect the added watch will come with any significant cost to the city.
A hunger strike at the Prince Albert Correctional Facility is over.
"The strike ended with the eight remaining inmates eating Monday night, and also breakfast on
Tuesday morning," said Judy Orthner, a Spokesperson with Corrections, Public Safety and Policing.
The nearly seven day long strike was sparked by a violent situation that happened at the jail two weeks ago. In response to that the prisoners were only allowed out of their cells for one hour per day, down from their usual six hours.
This may be the last summer a Saskatoon family gets to enjoy their decades
old, backyard tree house. People living next to the Montgomery neighbourhood
playhouse want the large structure torn down.
Issues between the neighbours started when a tree that once obscured the playhouse was cut down. The neighbour complained about the once hidden structure, calling it an eyesore. The person was also upset because the exposed tree house now overlooked their property, infringing on their privacy.
