Fougere To Announce Platform

Having evidently survived his brush with death during the recent Easter Seal Drop Zone fundraiser (assuming he did it on the Sunday after the event was postponed by high winds on Saturday) Michael Fougere will tackle his next “labour” in his Herculean struggle to become Regina’s new mayor when he announces the details of his election platform on Thursday, Sept. 6.

According to his media contact, RPL Board Chair Darlene Hincks, the press conference will be at his campaign office in the Market Mall, 309 Albert Street at 10 a.m.

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.
