Remai Art Gallery turns to Saskatoon for $900K advance

They are hundreds of thousands of dollars short of where they need to be at this point, and the Remai Art Gallery is asking the City of Saskatoon for help.

The gallery plans to ask city council for a $901,520 advance on Monday.

Visitor numbers, revenue rising at provincial parks

Visits and revenue from provincial parks are rising in Saskatchewan.

The government says park visits increased more than three per cent in 2013, reaching a total of 3.7 million visitors. That's an increase of more than 21 per cent since the Saskatchewan Party took over government in 2007. The $44 million spent on improvements in the last five years, including an extensive electrification campaign to power up camp sites, and the creation of a brand-new provincial park, the first in 20 years, likely helped.

For months, camera crews invaded Tequila Nightclub in Saskatoon and on Wednesday night the drama was unleashed.
