Shift To Reason Conference

Shift To ReasonBilled as Saskatchewan’s first secular conference, this event is being held at the DoubleTree Hilton in downtown Regina on Saturday April 30.

You can find out more on the Shift to Reason Conference website, but the goal of organizers is to promote secular thought and scientific rationalism over other “viewpoints” such as pseudo-science, superstition and whatnot that humans have long relied on in puzzling out the nature of our existence in the cosmos.

The conference runs from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday, and will consist of a mix of speakers and panel discussions exploring issues of interest to the secular community. Line-up information, and a schedule of events, can be found on the above-linked website.


A MESSAGE TO OUR READERS The coronavirus pandemic is a moment of reckoning for our community. We’re all hurting. It’s no different at Prairie Dog, where COVID-19 has wiped out advertisements for events, businesses and restaurants as Regina and Saskatchewan hunker down in quarantine. As an ad-supported newspaper already struggling in a destabilized media landscape, this is devastating. We’re hoping you, our loyal readers, can help fill in the gap so Prairie Dog can not only continue to exist but even expand our coverage — both in print and online. Please consider donating, either one-time or, even better, on a monthly basis.

We believe Prairie Dog's unique voice is needed, now more than ever. For 27 years, this newspaper has been a critical part of Regina’s social, cultural and democratic infrastructure. Don’t let us fade away. There’s only one Prairie Dog. If it’s destroyed, it’s never coming back.
