Honouring T.C. Douglas

Doug Loden, minister of the Calvary Baptist Church in Weyburn, re-enacts Tommy Douglas' famous "Mouseland" speech at the Tommy Douglas Day celebrations. The festivities were held at the Tommy Douglas Centre on Sunday and also kicked off the centre's Raise the Roof fundraiser to repair the roof. Attendees could pay $10 per shingle at the entrance and write their name on a paper shingle to be displayed in the centre's basement. Other performances included music by Leah Rebrinsky and Sarah Reginas, a skit written by Wendy Sidloski about Douglas arriving in a town as a student-minister, and a solo performance by Jean Freeman.
