Daily Aggregation: No Mo ‘Lympics

daily-aggregation-21. THE GAMES ARE OVAAAH! The CBC’s Nahlah Ayed shares some thoughts on what they meant for Russian president Vladimir Putin. Ayed, incidentally, will deliver the University of Regina’s Minifie Lecture this year. It’ll be a good one.

2. BLING FOR REGINA Three Reginans picked up medals in Sochi. Can you name them all without clicking this link?

3. EARLY MORNING PUB PARTY Reginans got up early to watch yesterday’s gold medal game at their favourite and/or closest watering holes. I was at O’Hanlon’s for the third period, and it was an epic and spectacular party.

4. THE NDP DEMANDS HEARINGS ON ELECTION LAW CHANGES To a lot of people, these changes look like an attack on democracy.

5. LIBERALS WRAP UP THEIR CONVENTION Yes they did. And on Saturday, Justin Trudeau reached out to the suckers who voted for Stephen Harper.

6. MONDAY NIGHT PROPERTY TAX PARTY City council debates a tax hike tonight. Taxes pay for infrastructure and services that we need, so let’s all be grown-up and realistic about this.

7. NOT IN MY BACKYARD Reginans protest an apartment complex planned for their neighbourhood, I assume because they would rather not live in a real city. Well, um, they do live in a real city — and cities have apartments. (That said, we need new apartments going up in the downtown and surrounding neighbourhoods, so if the city wants to send those this way, that’d be great.)

8. LOTSA ROBBERIES THIS WEEKEND Read all about it. Also, there was a scary home invasion in North Central.

9. TROUBLE CONTINUES IN VENEZUELA Here’s the latest. There was also a rally in support of Venezuela’s anti-government protesters here in Regina.

10. WOW, UGANDA IS JUST A BIGOT JAMBOREE THESE DAYS The country’s president signs off on more stupid anti-gay laws. Time for international sanctions, not to mention condemnation of the U.S. bigot behind this evil shit.

11. RUSSIA: NOT HAPPY ABOUT EVENTS IN UKRAINE Not at all. Meanwhile, the former president is wanted for committing mass murder.

12. EGYPT IS BROKEN The government resigns.

  1. TONIGHT: A historic City Council meeting, where your “elected” officials will be debating the highest proposed property tax hike in a generation. Will you just sit idly by while the developers and construction lobbyists get their way, or will you STAND UP and DEMAND ACTION? This is one of your only ways to (legally) demand true public accountability.

    Do you want to face another year of ridiculous tax increases, while our roads and infrastructure crumble all around us? Or do you want to see your elected officials held accountable for the hundreds of millions of dollars we entrust them with of OUR MONEY? There is a way ladies and gentlemen, and the current Council isn’t the way. When you have a construction lobbyist as Mayor, realtors as Councillors, and the former Mayor in bed with the provincial government, it can only spell disaster.

    Don’t let them continue to steal your money for their own personal gain. DEMAND BETTER. Call for a Public Inquiry!!! http://novak2012.blogspot.ca/2014/02/take-back-control-of-your-tax-dollars.html

  2. That #7…. oh the hilarity. Where were these guys when all the condos were going up on Arens Road? Nowhere. Now all of a sudden they are worried about traffic. Ooooooh, but scaaaaaary renters might invade! Give me a break. It’s like all of a sudden, these clowns all woke up and realized the suburbanite 70s might just be finally coming to a slow halt in Regina, possibly within the next 50 years.

  3. Hey all. I ran across ones blog page the application of bing. That is a truly nicely created report. I will be guaranteed to book mark that obtainable time for continue reading of one’s strategies. Thanks for the particular submit. Let me absolutely recovery.
