Congratulations to the City of Prince Albert: a new study by the real estate site Calgary.com has listed P.A. as the greenest city in Canada.

The City of Regina doesn’t have to worry about getting on that list. They with the assistance of the Government of Saskatchewan, University of Regina and Conexus Credit Union built a massive head office building and paved parking lot in place of the 102 mature trees which they cut down in Wascana Park.

If that is not enough, Regina changes zoning to allow the potential construction of high rise buildings immediately adjacent to the park at the Lakeshore Mall site. I have no idea of the annual number of bird strikes this will cause.

'It is only a game': Reader says some Rider fans took Blue Bombers rivalry too far at Grey Cup

  'It is only a game': Reader says some Rider fans took Blue Bombers rivalry too far at Grey Cup I am an unwavering fan of the Roughriders, but this weekend I was embarrassed by many of these same fans. We had friends come to Grey Cup from Winnipeg and enjoyed the party rooms with them and supported them by cheering for the Bombers. They supported businesses in Regina and were here for a good time. Instead, they left with a sour taste in their mouth for Regina. I want to thank the family who taught their child to say “I’ll cheer for anyone but the Bombers. I hate them,“ or the people telling our friends there is no way they’d cheer for the Bombers or the gentleman who told my husband after the game as he left that he could now burn his Bomber hat.

Murray Mandryk: Government's warrant act required more thorough input .
Should violent criminals like accused James Smith Cree Nation murderer Myles Sanderson — someone who was also allegedly involved in the drug trade — be financed by the Saskatchewan government’s social safety net? The reasoned and logical answer from most would be a hard “no.” But does it necessarily help to cut off most every criminal, like Sanderson, with outstanding criminal arrest warrants? Would it encourage rehabilitation? Or might it encourage more crime, given they’d have no other source of income? What are the unintended consequences for their families that Saskatchewan Income Support (SIS) is there to help? And as pointed by this newspaper’s editor, Rus
