ChamberCommerceWhen I was out for a stroll last evening in beautiful downtown Regina I came across this sign on Victoria Ave. between Hamilton and Rose St.  If you actually pause and peer into the bush you can see what the message is and who it’s being sponsored by — so props to everyone involved for the innovative marketing strategy.

As far as public events (or semi-public, anyway) tied to the upcoming referendum on the Waste Water/Sewage Treatment Plant two that I’m aware of are (i) the Regina Gyro Club is trying to organize a debate between the Yes and No sides that would be held at the Travelodge on Sept. 5 at 7:30 p.m. The event would be open to media, but not the general public outside of club members.

(ii) Then on Sept. 9 at noon Mayor Michael Fougere is speaking about the referendum at a Regina & District Chamber of Commerce luncheon at Conexus Arts Centre.

UPDATE: Regina Water Watch is hosting a public forum at the University of Regina Education Auditorium Sept. 11 at 7 p.m. Speaking will be Maude Barlow of the Council of Canadians; Marley Waiser, a retired Environment Canada Research Scientist; and Pierre J. Hamel,  a Professor of Urban Planning and Sociology at the University of Montreal.
