Regina masters student studies female Rider fans

Most fans of the Saskatchewan Roughriders would likely agree that Rider nation is something special, but now a study done by a student at the University of Regina shows that may be right, especially when looking at female Rider fans.

Katie Sveinson is a first-year Masters student in the Faculty of Kinesiology who was looking for a topic to study.

"When I decided to do my masters, I kind of decided I would like to research sports fans, being one myself," Sveinson said.

Traffic frustrations for drivers in downtown Regina

Regina isn’t typically known for traffic jams in the summer, but work at the Capital Pointe development site at Albert Street and Victoria Avenue is creating the closest thing to that.

SaskPower is currently doing work at the development site. As a result, there are partial lane closures which are backing up traffic for blocks, especially as people are driving to work or coming home from it. Essentially it’s creating a bottle neck.

“It’s a bit of a mess,” said driver Ken Rumsey.

But Harold also has a desk in the basement of the Hamilton Street shop where he keeps photos, books, and other souvenirs and remnants of his former life in the Canadian Armed Forces.

Carp causing problems at Wascana Lake

An overabundance of the common carp has the Wascana Centre Authority (WCA) worried that Wascana Lake could see some degradation if the population isn’t controlled.

Officials with the WCA began receiving calls about large schools of the bottom-feeding fish in the summer of 2012. After a quick investigation, they found a large population of carp.

Jared Clarke, naturalist with the authority, said they’re not sure on an exact number, but there could be hundreds of carp living in the lake.
