Foliage Report: Thursday, May 26

FR 2016 (5-26-1706)

BUT if you’re bored of trees (how anyone could be escapes me), um, how about food? Our 2016 Best Of Food & Drink issue came out today! “But what about Saskatoon, Steve? I go there sometimes! Is there a ‘Best Of Food & Drink Saskatoon’ I can read online?” Good news: our sister publication Planet S has that covered.

Okay, more tree now.

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.
