Manager of Pest Control and Horticulture Ray Morgan says this is the first case of Dutch elm disease confirmed in a city-owned tree this year. The city typically loses three or four trees per year.

What began with a group of women is now the last remaining Great War memorial in Canada.
In May 9, 1922 the Imperial Order of Daughters of the Empire (IODE) sent a letter to council suggesting a good commemoration of veterans of the First World War would be to plant a row of trees down both sides of 3rd Avenue into the heart of the city,” Jeff O’Brien, City of Saskatoon archivist, said.

Three years ago, Anne Wallace embarked on a trip of a lifetime to France and Belgium to visit the battlefields of the First World War.
The Saskatoon lawyer says the history courses she took in university gave her a basic understanding of the First World War, but actually seeing the places in person gave her a new appreciation.
"What the Western front really was, for example, and what really went on in terms of the back and forth on that line for so long," Wallace said in an interview on John Gormley Live.
