This Week At City Hall: Café Patios On Hill Ave Cut 50%, Condo Policy Disaster Averted, Getting Ready To Welcome Refugees

thisweekatcityhallHere it is: 100% twitter-distilled city council meeting for your mid-morning clicking pleasure. It’s all here. The debate, the clever repartee, the feel-good speechifying, the Chad Novak. Everything except the boring bits.

And if you don’t like the slick slideshow viewer that’s below, click on over to my Storify site for the whole thing on a page.

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.

  1. I could probably take in a refugee family of a mum & 2/3 younger children. For a month or 3 ; until they find a private place.
