It will likely be chilly for Saturday’s Saskatchewan Roughriders game,but you might want to rethink the kinds of things you’re considering bringing to the game.
Garnet Truscott and his family—his daughter and his eight-year-old twin granddaughters—had tickets to last Saturday’s game against Edmonton. He decided he was going to take a thermos of hot chocolate with him. However, when he got to security they gave him a simple choice: pour it out or leave.
A $2.7 billion investment into the Federated Co-Ops Refinery Complex (CRC) in Regina should help boost how much oil the facility produces each day by about a third.
Federated Co-Ops Limited (FCL), which owns and operates the refinery, celebrated the official opening of the massive expansion project on Thursday. This expansion was built to process sweet synthetic crude, which is already partially upgraded in Alberta.
Technically section five at the CRC started production last October, but the final upgrades to the surrounding facility were just completed this summer.
Some people in Regina would like to see the rules on how cable companies offer channels un-paused.
In Wednesday’s Throne Speech, the federal government addressed how it was going to take steps to make television providers unbundle channels and move towards letting customers pick and pay. That seems to be a popular choice among those News Talk spoke with.
“I agree with it big time. I think that we pay for a lot of channels that we don’t watch,” said one woman.
“You get the bundles and there are some stations you don’t want,” agreed another man.
Gigantic plumes of smoke coming from a farmyard 16 kilometers north of Regina could easily be seen from the city Tuesday afternoon.
A wildfire was sparked in a field of stubble, and driven east by heavy winds towards a nearby farmhouse.
The fire scorched a field of stubble and claimed a few bales just meters away from the house. Regina fire crews and local farmers worked to contain it, saving the structures in the yard for the most part.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
The man wanted in a Canada-wide search warrant is headed back to prison.
49 year old Mitchell Lawrence Sasakamoose took off from his home in Regina's Heritage neighbourhood this summer. He had moved there a month prior, prompting police to warn the public about his history of violent behavior and substance abuse.
At the time, he was under a long-term parole order. After failing to return to his home on July 3, police issued a nation-wide warrant for his arrest.
He stole the hearts of some on-duty cops and now a dog dubbed ‘Copper’ is getting a new leash on life.
Staff Sergeant Evan Bray was on duty Sunday when a different kind of call came across the radio.
“The officer that initially found Copper and called it in – you could hear the panic in his voice, this dog was injured and he needed help,” he said.
Bray says a concerned citizen flagged down the officer after seeing a badly injured dog in a back alley behind 1600 block of Toronto Street.
After only his first week on the job, Rick Bourassa is able to enjoy his first long weekend. The long-time Regina police officer is back on the force - this time in Moose Jaw.
"I started with the Regina Police Service in 1981. So that dates me a little bit," Bourassa said in an interview his second day in his new office.
Bourassa was named the new chief of police for the Moose Jaw Police Service at the end of August. He was officially sworn in at the beginning of October, beginning his new job October 7.
After the big Thanksgiving meal is over the turkey, stuffing, and vegetables can be turned into many different meals.
Chef and owner of Simon’s Fine Foods, Simon Reynolds, said that all of the turkey, including the carcass, can be used to spice up the food after a Thanksgiving meal.
“When you break it down you usually have some white meat left, you have some dark meat, and you have the carcass,” he explained.
“The carcass is going to be for soup. So, you are going to make stock and turn that into soup.”
Matching outfits, overly-posed and staring off into the distance: a Saskatoon-area photography business wants to see that one family photo that makes you lovingly cringe.
Carrie Klassen, owner of Fotographia Dynamic Photography in Warman, is holding an awkward family photo contest; it's a local take on the popular website awkwardfamilyphotos.com.
