Something to combat your post-referendum blues/joy

What’s the matter this morning? Your chicken taste like pork? Your Yes ballot sizzling away like a water drop on a hot plate? Or maybe doing a little tango with yourself over your contribution to the No side? This should give us all some perspective.

And in the meantime, mark your calendars for summer 2033, when we’re all old and grey and full of sleep, and the city is duking it out with whatever company is grinding our public infrastructure down to a dull nub.

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.
