CBC Saskatchewan's pop up bureau heading to Stanley Mission

CBC Saskatchewan wants to reach even more places in our province to help tell the stories that get to the heart of the communities from the people who live there. That’s why we will be in Stanley Mission to learn about the stories important to their community.

We'll be there to listen and learn from Feb. 27 to Mar. 6

CBC Saskatchewan wants to reach more people from around our province and tell the stories that show the heart of their communities.

That's why we will be in Stanley Mission to listen and learn about the stories, issues, and events important to their community. 

Journalists will explore how music is being used to keep youth and young people engaged after hardships in Stanley Mission, we'll witness baseball on snowshoes in an annual competition, and have an in-depth look at the tradition of 'King Trapper' at the 40th Annual Winter Carnival. 

Join us in person and tell us what stories you think Canadians need to know about Stanley Mission. You'll find us working out of Keethanow Public Library at Bag Service 70 in Stanley Mission, SK on Mar 2. to Mar. 6 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.

Eager to learn new journalism skills? We will be hosting a journalism workshop on Monday Mar 2 from 6:30 - 8:00 p.m at the Rhoda Hardlotte Memorial High School. This event will be open to the community and no registration is required.

If you see our journalists in the community, at a restaurant, school or event, come say Hi. We'd love to meet you!
