Walter Lesyk Celebrates 30 Years With Company

Walter Lesyk achieved 30 years of service on May 7, 1987. Walter joined Canadian Salt as a bagger in the Fused Plant. Throughout the years he worked in every department in the plant except the Power House and Maintenance Departments. He began his supervisory duties as Fused Plant Supervisor then Pan Room Supervisor and finally Production Supervisor. Walter has found his work very challenging and rewarding. He especially enjoys the challenges offered in the Pan Room operations.  Walter and his wife Marie are lifetime residents of Elk Point where they have reared their two children, Patricia and Ronald. Ron is residing at home and Pat is pursuing her career in the Edmonton area. Congratulations, Walter, on this milestone in your career.


Nick Elaschuk passed away on May 25, 1987. Nick joined Canadian Salt June 23, 1952 and retired November 27, 1984. During his years of service he was Mechanic and Relief Supervisor. Nick will be sadly missed by all. Our deepest sympathy to Nick's wife, Wasylena and family.
