The Saskatoon Fire Department is warning citizens to stay off all ponds and lakes throughout the City. The unseasonably warm weather has resulted in water standing on top of the ice. When that happens the ice becomes unpredictable and can change rapidly.

The Saskatoon Fire Department is working with City crews to have the signage changed to indicate that the ponds and lakes are unsafe for recreational use.

In support of a transit driver killed on the job in Winnipeg recently, Saskatoon Transit buses are displaying ‘Lest We Forget’ today. Today is the funeral for 58 year old Irvine J. Fraser.

Due to limitations to program head signs, ‘Lest We Forget’ is the most appropriate message.  The same message has been displayed in the past to commemorate police officers, RCMP officers, etc. who have been killed in the line of duty.
