Tara Fehr says she wanted to give a friend a hand in a time of need.

Fehr heard last December about a fire that burned down a friend's home. She agreed to rent her two-storey farmhouse near Melfort, Sask., to the woman and her family for a while, as Fehr was moving to Alberta.

"I was so anxious to help a friend and because I know how hard it can be to get back on your feet after something like that," she said.

Instead, Fehr experienced a landlord's worst nightmare. She came back to Melfort to find her home trashed, rotting food, filth, items stolen and her truck stripped to the bone.

"It was unrecognizable. I thought, 'Who lives like this?' " she said, describing her shock and disbelief. "You couldn't put into words what you were seeing and what you smelled. I've never seen anything like it. It was just horrendous."

Beyond Meat burgers may mean big business for Sask. pea, lentil growers

Beyond Meat burgers may mean big business for Sask. pea, lentil growers A new food trend has pulse growers across Saskatchewan excited about a new place to sell their crops. Meat substitute products, like the well-publicized Beyond Meat burger, are showing up more often in restaurants and on grocery shelves. The products typically contain protein-rich crops like peas, lentils and chickpeas. While those crops are typically exported to countries like India, some experts say there could be major benefits to processing them closer to home.

Fehr said she'd known the mother of the family for a while, with them having children close in age.

"It brought me comfort to know that [the home] was being lived in and it was helping someone else out and it was being well looked after, I thought," she said.

Fehr said she didn't take pictures of the property beforehand, or call landlord references, as she trusted the couple would take care of the home and pay the bills to cover rent and utilities.

Fehr said she didn't receive any money for the next three months, but was constantly assured that her friend was getting money from a student loan and would eventually pay.

"There were a few red flags here and there, but nothing really major," she said.

It was a neighbour who notified her that a truck Fehr had left on the property had been stripped and that the front yard was in shambles, with pieces of a couch strewn everywhere.

Fehr quickly organized a trip to go back to Melfort. She arrived at her home on May 9 to see the damage that had been done.

Beyond the mess, there were thousands of dollars worth of theft, she said. Every part of the truck had been taken, while dressers, a rototiller, bear traps and a kitchen table had been removed.

"Just anything and everything of value is gone."

Fehr said there were signs in the house of heavy drug use, including a strong acidic smell and cleaning supplies like Windex out, with a charred porcelain spoon and a blowtorch sitting on a table.

The father of one of the renters confirmed Fehr's account and said meth addiction was an issue in the couple's lives. He said items had been stolen from Fehr's property to buy drugs.

Fehr said she's lodged a complaint with police, but has been told it's a civil matter because the renters had her permission to stay in the home.

Melfort RCMP said they couldn't comment on ongoing matters, but said that they can take statements and investigate if a landlord makes a report of theft.

However, people have been telling her they have some of her stolen goods and she has asked them to report it to police. Others have offered to pitch in and help clean the home, while others are fundraising to help her pay for the costs of clean-up.

While Fehr's been burned by her experience of renting out her home, she said she doesn't want to lose trust in people.

"I don't want to say, 'Don't help somebody else when they need it,' because there's so many good people out there that would not have done this," she said.

"I would probably do the same thing again, just hopefully differently, hopefully a little bit smarter."

He lived through a Nazi invasion. 79 years later, he saw a 'disgusting' Nazi flag go up in his Sask. village.
Gerrit de Gooijer first saw a hated Nazi flag flying in his village on the afternoon Friday, May 10. It happened to be exactly 79 years from the day the Nazis marched into his home country of the Netherlands, starving and killing his people. "How many soldiers fought for years, how many soldiers gave their life, and then [to] see that bloody flag hanging up there? That was disgusting," he said, the hard edge of anger in his voice. The 92-year-old and his wife, Truus, live in Kelliher, Sask., a tiny village of just over 200 people that made national headlines when a Nazi and a Confederate flag were hoisted over a local house.
