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.

Author: Stephen Whitworth

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.

  1. Listen, Whitworth, too many of us are getting MORE than a little tired of the bullshit you keep posting under the Foliage Report. Like it wasn’t enough that your damn tree has ZERO greenery past the half-way point of May this year — then you just had to post those photos from 2011 and 2013. If there are still no leaves in today’s photo update — for your own safety and sanity, you might want to consider closing comments in the Foliage Report.

  2. Well…I, for one, look forward to the daily foliage report. But, this is Global Warming???Seriously, I think that tree is dead. For those interested in the global warming thing, please watch ‘Chasing Ice’ on Netfix..made me a believer.

  3. Once again, I must express shock that this blog would have commentators who had to be “converted” to the obvious of man-made climate change. Maybe you’re all Gen Y and really believe in ‘your right’ to your version of history? Anyway, it’s fairly obvious that tree buds are delayed when winter drags on and spring is slow to warm. Watch for major blooming this wkend.
