This afternoon I was part of a covert meeting with Saskatoon Ward 10 councillor Zach Jeffries. I invited him to meet me here on the “down-low” but of course, with public profiles like ours it was a matter of time before the Regina paparazzi caught wind. I expect photos and rumours will begin to pop up like so many Richardson’s ground squirrels, so I have decided to strike first in an effort to control the message because some of the photos and reports may not be flattering.
Among the topics on our agenda:
The tripling of Highway 11 to introduce a lane specifically for use by Zach, myself and our friends. Start kissing our asses now if you don’t wanna be tail-gated by a Dodge Ram or boxed in by a Crown Victoria ever again. None of those in our lane. Also no speed limit.
Saskatoon to become a second location for the Regina Folk Festival, and Regina will host some of The Saskatchewan Jazz Festival. The RFF is a beauty and Sask Jazz is friggin’ amazing. Both festivals should happen in both cities. For example, Serena Ryder plays RFF Aug. 9 at 10:50pm and under our new arrangement, she would then drive to Saskatoon, using the Zach- Heath Superlane and play at 1:30am.
Mayor swap! Once a year, for one month we will swap mayors. They don’t get to use the lane. Extended time away from home presents a great chance for politicians to get quality time with a mistress! A happy mayor is a better mayor, no?
We have a lot to do so I bid you farewell. In the meantime, we welcome your suggestions regarding Saskatoon/Regina co-operative efforts.
