Last night was my first time back at city council since August of 2014. And it ended up being a FIVE HOUR LONG meeting. I didn’t get home until nearly 11pm.
I swear Fougere planned it this way just to get me back for escaping to the beach for a year.
Despite my rusty twittering skills, I did manage to live tweet throughout the meeting. To catch up anyone who couldn’t be there or couldn’t watch from home, I’ve compiled everything I typed — along with a selection of the twitter chatter from others — into one honking huge storify.

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.
