Daily Aggregation: R.I.P., Fast Forward Weekly

daily-aggregation-21. GOOD BYE FAST FORWARD, WE HATE SEEING YOU GO Absolutely rotten news out of Calgary today, as we learned that the city’s long-running alternative newsweekly paper, Fast Forward, is being shut down by its parent company, Great West Newspapers. You can read more here and here. This sucks.

2. MOUNTIE WHO TASED A DUDE TO DEATH IS GUILTY OF… PERJURY Is that a fancy word for killing someone? Confused.

3. HERITAGE BUILDING IDENTIFIED IN REGINA, CALL IN THE BULLDOZERS! This city, I tell ya.

4. MORE DEATH ON SASK. HIGHWAYS Fuck.

5. THE SECRET LIBRARY There’s controversy over the Saskatchewan government’s investigation into building a library to house public records… which is what the Saskatchewan Archives Board does… which the government has cut funding to. What?

6. GREEK BAIL-OUT EXTENDED Good.

TRAILER: THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. Hmm, this remake looks like it’ll be fun. Makes sense, the director is Guy Richie. Hey, have a good, and safe, weekend.

  1. 3. New owner’s excuses for demo sound mendacious, at best. So why would you buy that property IF it did not make a good property for a family? Duh. Like there aren’t several other family properties in and around the Crescents, Cathedral, and Lakeview. They just don’t give a shit. They’ll choke out the entrance on Leopold to the Crescents with trucks and a damaged road for two years just to build their modern, conspicuous Usonia dream home in the heritage precinct. BUY ANOTHER HOME if you don’t like bad plumbing.
