Daily Aggregation: Moore Invasion

daily-aggregation-21. SASKATOON 14-YEAR-OLD WHO APPARENTLY SHOT HIS FRIEND FACES CHARGES Depressing.

2. CAR DRIVES INTO REGINA BEAUTY SALON  No injuries, good.

3. UNHAPPY ANNIVERSARY Sept. 11 2001 sucked.

4. #ELXN 42: SO POLLS, MUCH CLOSE CBC’s Poll Tracker essentially has the three main parties in a dead heat. I’d like to see Conservative support drop under 20 per cent; it’s depressing that between a quarter and a third of my fellow citizens country are gullible and/or malicious enough to vote for Harper’s party. Cut that to one in five and it’d cheer me up: I could probably dial back on the SSRIs.

5. NEW BRUNSWICK: WET Massive rainfall on the east coast. How massive? Up to “a month of rain in just 24 hours” massive.

6. ROB FORD: NO NEW TUMORS I’m glad Rob Ford doesn’t have any new tumors.

7. WELCOME TO THE FAMILY, H. NALEDI Oh yeah, scientists discovered the fossilized remains of a new species of human. Here’s the story in National Geographic.

8. SPEAKING OF NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC It’s now majority owned by Rupert Murdoch. That’s Rupert Murdoch the climate change skeptic. Well grrreat.

9. DOUCHE SUSPENDS PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN Goodbye Rick Perry. Douche.

LET’S WRAP UP THE WEEK WITH A MOVIE TRAILER This came out today. It’s for Michael Moore’s new movie, Where To Invade Next. Looks all right.


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.

Prairie Dog editor Stephen Whitworth was carried to Regina in a swarm of bees. He's been with Prairie Dog since May 1999 and will die at his keyboard before admitting this was all a terrible, terrible mistake.
