Writer continues with his campaign


Dear editor,

Presently, all flowers are removed from Green Acres Memorial Garden in Weyburn from October 1 until April 1. 

The responsibility for the three provincially operated cemeteries has been moved from Saskatchewan Justice to Saskatchewan Financial Services Commission (SFSC). They have decided that I (as an interim measure) can have flowers on my wife’s grave during winter months but nobody else can unless they get permission from Regina. 

Apparently, I am the only person who has made an issue of wanting the flowers on graves during winter months.  If you want to have flowers on the graves of your loved ones or friends during the winter, you must plead your case with Regina. 

If enough people ask for this, we may get a public meeting on the issue. I told him that I have 417-plus signatures, but he is assuming they are all for me. They are using the risk of breakage of the vases as justification even though Estevan, which allows flowers year-round, has never broken a vase. 

Spread the word and send your “petitions” to Eric Greene, the registrar for the SFSC in Regina.

If you have any questions, please call.

Gerald Shauf,
