Goooooooooood morning Regina! Welcome to prairiedogmag.com, the new Internet home of prairie dog magazine.
If you’re already a reader, you’ll know that prairie dog is a free distribution, independent bi-weekly published and distributed in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada. For 17 years now we’ve published news, opinion, opinion about news and news about opinions, with commentary on everything. We also work hard to interview actual smart, informed people in our stories, which we hear people like.
We also run a lot of arts coverage, with a strong focus on upcoming cultural events–the idea is that people can read our magazine and get some notion about what to go out and see. We write about rock shows and CDs, visual art (including performance art), movies both popular and arty and sometimes books and dance and theatre.
And we print (and now, web-print) reviews of local restaurants, profiles of local people, occasional sports stories and odds ‘n’ ends widgets-and-whatnots to keep things fun.
Basically, we’re neato. And now we’re on the Internet. Hooray!
This website’s home page features Dog Blog, a regularly-updated blog prairie dog started in December 2008 with news, arts, rants, copious City Hall coverage and links to the notable events going on in a particular day. Expect regular updates.
The new prairiedogmag.com will now be the online location of our magazine, with most of the articles from the physical paper and eventually, archives. (We’ll have back issues of the paper posted to the beginning of 2010 as fast as we can get that up and we’ll add more archives over time. )
So I think that’s enough to get us started. Snoop around the website, leave comments on the blog and have fun. It’s what we do.
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.
