One of the people responsible for saddling Regina with the huge StadiumII debt is criticizing another person responsible for the huge debt, except for this botched demolition.
Tonight was a night of firsts for City Council. It was the first time multiple teenagers presented delegations. It was the first time the Council got a standing ovation from the gallery for passing a motion. And it was the first time the Council made a commitment to make Regina 100% renewable by 2050.
What’s at stake? Less than half the world that is left.
It’s not right that Fougere will get to brag about passing a
#100Possible motion unanimously. He’s dragged his heels on the file for forever. He’s provided the obstacle to innovation.
But I’ll take his compliance now. We don’t have time left to argue about it.
Given his comments to the media after about having to implement the changes “sustainably” I take that to mean he wants to go as slowly as possible, only taking on projects that don’t increase taxes, and which don’t put the city into debt (which isn’t a
possibility under current provincial law so far as I understand).
This might be the last community event I attend in Artful Dodger. Their building is being sold.
[…] the City will be installing – by this afternoon – late-night taxi zones along Victoria Avenue at Scarth Street. We are confident this will address the needs of patrons while also protecting the safety of pedestrians and motorists in the area.”
Wow. That was fast. When I raised the same problem with Service Regina several years ago, it was aaaages before the City agreed to the sensible taxi stop on the block with Victoria’s Tavern, despite the close proximity of an alleyway the City explained limited the space for such an important taxi stand.
At the end of June the City App died, and the host didn’t tell the City they were shutting off the service. The City, caught with its pants down, is trying to see if they can legally get the code for their app, so their developers can salvage the app. A new one is being developed with a new website also. They didn’t even make a PSA or news release noting the death of the once much hyped City App.
The CityApp was shut down on July 1, 2017. Our upcoming redesign of Regina.ca will include implementing a new mobile app to replace CityApp.

Yes, the City lists an example of being caught with its pants down, as an “achievement”.
Too bad they dropped the important pedestrian and cyclist access pathway promised in the first phase.
