Here’s a link to the May 6 Queen City Confidential.

Our crack team of investigative reporters has done some digging, and it’s suspected that the renovations are being done to spruce up the hotel a bit so that it can serve as a sales office for the condos that are going to be built there beginning this fall. Units start at $199,000, I believe, and top out at over a million.

First house my mom and dad ever bought, I remember, was a reasonably new two-story in Whitmore Park in the late ’60s. The price? $8000.

Yeah, housing has gone kind of crazy lately. On Tuesday, a rally’s being held at the Legislature at noon as part of the national Red Tent campaign to demand affordable housing and an end homelessness.

Sponsored locally by the Regina Anti-Poverty Network, the rally will address lack of rental stock due to condo conversions, overcrowding and unsafe living conditions, and the need for decent housing for seniors and disabled people.
