Six In The Morning: Oh My God, They Killed Brian!

6-in-the-morning1 NOTHING HAPPENED YESTERDAY Psych! The Riders won the Grey Cup! People from Hamilton are a little sad. For some reason, Tom Hanks was in Regina. Sounds like the happy Rider mob was well-behaved. Hopefully no one needed an emergency room. Buses weren’t running into the evening, which is an embarrassment. But all in all, fun times were had.

2 IT’S BYELECTION DAY More here. Go Linda McQuaig!

3 IRAN NUCLEAR DEAL It happened. Israel and U.S. Republicans don’t like it. Minister of Foreign Affairs John Baird also dunnit like it. Read even more here and here.

4 SENATE SCANDAL UPDATE Read all about it.

5 WE WANT YOUR IDEAS (UNLESS THEY COST MONEY)  Canada’s Finance Minister pretends he wants budget input from opposition parties.

6 A BUNCH OF OTHER NEWS We’re losing antibiotics, a preventable crisis which will come as no surprise to anyone who understands basic science; The WTO says the EU can ban our seal products; Rob Ford is a fibber; a story about the Rob Ford media circus; and  here’s a story about marijuana tourism to the U.S.

GOODBYE, BRIAN Well, for now at least. Last night while we were all watching the Grey Cup, Family Guy killed off its best character. R.I.P., Brian. Hopefully not for too long.

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.

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 his career a terrible, terrible mistake.

One thought on “Six In The Morning: Oh My God, They Killed Brian!”

  1. 1) Yowzaaaaaahhhhh!
    2) More interesting than Ms. McQuaig’s contest is Liberal Rolf Dinsdale’s, in Brandon-Souris. His dad was Walter Dinsdale, who was a perennially elected conservative MP, and a cabinet minister under Diefenbaker. If Brandon-Souris goes Liberal, it will send an earthshaking message to Ottawa.
    3) I’d be counting my fingers after that handshake.
    4) Aw, do I have to?
    5) That’s a legit request.
    6) Boo, EU.
