Exciting Goings On On Scarth Street Mall

20151027_133128_resized_1 (1)So I guess a light standard toppled over on the mall shortly after lunch today.

Fortunately it didn’t happen during a warm summer day with hundreds of people out and about because otherwise…


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.

  1. Ha . Pdoggers.. walk down 11th ave toward Broad St., …on yer side.. notice the bricks.. & the sunken road..

    A liberal 1B$ is needed here to fix, just the downtown.. a lifetimer #yqrcc’s salary of neglect.

  2. It would be nice if they could implode the BMO building adjacent to the PDawg block. Nothing cuts out the sun and creates a sense of sterile alienation more than that structure. Downtown Regina has become robotically less and less attractive every year for 35 years, but it has never been this bad. Some people stopped going there cuz of parking; bleh, whatever. The disappearance of the unique thrift shops and thrift eateries was the worst development, made worse by all the cold windy shade.

    (You know what, plus the people have become way more hostile and such downtown. Repository for angry people.)

    There may be no better antidote to angry shady late afternoon Scarth Street than the middle of Neil Balkwill area park, or “green space”, which is what I think we call grass & trees in the 21st century.
