City Council Warp Up: Glockenspiel Will Glocken Again, There’s Hope For Craft Brewers

Is there some kind of achievement unlocked for live tweeting city council two nights in a row? Because I deserve that.

Here’s a collection of tweets from the March 28 meeting. No budget emergencies this night. Just your typical “how’re we gonna fund a glockenspiel?” kind of meeting.

Also on the agenda was the food and beverage service at the new stadium and this inspired a group of local craft brewers to appear before council and ask for some assurance that Regina’s small breweries will be able to sell their cold ones in the stadium. Spoilers: Local craft beer in the stadium is highly likely.

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.
