June Updates

Hello everyone!!

No, I haven't forgotten about you, I've been quite busy this month. However, I have been posting a lot more on my Facebook page than on here, obviously, so if you want to keep up with the latest, be sure to check out my page.

Here are just a few of the topics I've posted this month:

Saskatchewan Budget Highlights and Lowlights - Is it wise to cut funding to urban parks? Why is Brad Wall so eager to make cuts to programs that are relatively cost effective, and make extremely minimal impact to the overall budget?

A Living Wage - A good idea? What could it mean to you and me, as taxpayers?

Regina Bypass - Even more short term thinking and boondoggles plague the growing scandal around the Regina Bypass.

Regina Police "Homeless" Entrapment (?) Scheme - What are the positives and negatives of this approach? More importantly, is it ethical?

Regina Blue Dot Movement - The hypocrisy that is City Council and the threat of an additional right for Canadians that might cost...oh no....pipelines!

City Wide Improvements - Has the Regina Downtown BID lost its way? Why are people slowing down (excessively) on the Ring Road? How can underpasses/overpasses be improved? Why is the Victoria Avenue/Ring Road overpass being replaced?

Another Huge Payout - Former Deputy City Manager, Brent Sjoberg, was paid out $420,000 in severance pay. This only came about thanks to a Freedom of Information request by the Leader Post. Is this excessive? What are we doing to get a handle on these things?

This and so much more!!! See what you miss out on when you don't follow my Facebook page?
