Aboriginal Models Part Of Fundraising Fashion Show

Monday, January 18, 2010 at 12:31

 

 

Beauty of all shapes, sizes and colours stepped out for a good cause in Regina over the weekend.

 

The Above and Beyond fashion show featured Aboriginal, Caucasian and African American models.

 

First Nations model Heather Abbey says she was inspired to see so many Aboriginal participants in the show.

 

"It just felt great to see First Nations people represented so well -- there was a good six or seven of us, at least -- and I found it inspiring, because when I started modelling, I was pretty much the only one in the agency that was First Nations. I'd do shows, and I'd be the only one who was First Nations. So it was really inspiring, and empowering, to see so many First Nations models out there today," Abbey says.

 

Proceeds from the show go to support Sofia House, a shelter for abused women.

Appeal Date Set For Walmart Baby Case

Friday, January 15, 2010 at 14:55

 

 

The Regina Court of Appeal has set a date to hear the case of April Halkett.

 

Last year, a judge found the northern woman not guilty on a charge of child abandonment after she gave birth in a public washroom stall in the Prince Albert Walmart store, and then left the newborn in the toilet.

 

However, the Crown was not happy with the verdict in the so-called "Walmart baby" case, and launched an appeal.

 

The appeal is scheduled to be heard at 10 a.m. on Feb. 9.

 

A clerk at the Court of Appeal says the case could be adjourned, though, as both sides are still working through the recent death of the lawyer who defended Halkett in her trial.

SIIT To Offer Aircraft Maintenance Training

Friday, January 15, 2010 at 14:44

 

 

A new course in aircraft maintenance will soon be offered through the Saskatchewan Indian Institute of Technologies.

 

Today, the school was awarded $1.6-million from the federal government.

 

The money will be used to set up a training centre at the Saskatoon airport, where classes will be held.

 

Saskatoon Member of Parliament Maurice Vellacott says there is a growing demand for aircraft maintenance in places like the north.

 

Fifteen positions will be offered at the training centre, which is slated to begin operating in August.

 

The province is kicking in some used planes and some operational funding, as well.
