Letters: Time for Metropolis of Regina to conclusion REAL’s leisure monopoly

Posting information

Is it not about time to remove the Regina Exhibition Association Minimal (Actual) from having a monopoly on our amusement business in Regina? What have they finished? We are getting place on the map in destructive connotations as we check out bucks carry on to head north to Saskatoon.

Considering that they have taken manage, they requested much more funding, require to fork out back $8 million in loans to the Canadian Crisis Response Gain (CERB) as our metropolis/provincial-funded point out-of-the-artwork stadium sits vacant.

Write-up material

When the Town of Regina ran the stadium we at least experienced a few really noteworthy concerts visit out city, which brought persons from miles all-around boosting the neighborhood financial system.

Never forget the Circle Task

I am writing this letter in response to the March 4 Leader Publish report titled “Cities seeking for meaningful methods to display reconciliation”. 

As an Indigenous, neighborhood-dependent group for 35 several years, Circle Venture applauds any and all attempts towards reconciliation. We assume it is extremely critical to admit and realize neighborhood leadership efforts at the grassroots amount.

Circle Venture has been “bridging the gaps” in our group since 1988 and has constantly and persistently been at the forefront of bringing recognition to latest difficulties and inclusion in the community.

Illustrations of this consist of Circle Job internet hosting Regina’s first Countrywide Indigenous Peoples’ Working day in 1998 and producing the Hearts in the Park in  2016 to raise awareness of family members violence.

The image that accompanied the write-up you published was taken at the TRC occasion hosted by Circle Venture in 2022 and held in Victoria Park. But there was no mention of Circle Job anywhere in the write-up.

Report content material

This is really disheartening since above the a long time Circle Project has served in a leadership role and invested major time, energy and cash to host essential local community functions for Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in Regina.

In the future, make sure you acquire increased care to contain all pertinent information and facts to assure that community-centered organizations, like Circle Task, get the recognition they have earned.

Carbon tax a Conservative concept

It appears like the Liberals are acquiring into warmth from Conservatives pertaining to the most the latest maximize in carbon pricing. Conservatives usually assert there is a deficiency of tips from the Liberals, but conveniently forgot to mention from the place the carbon tax plan came.

Primary Minister Stephen Harper proposed at the very least 11 many years back that a value on air pollution as a carbon tax if you will would be the way to go. Harper was very well on his way to charging when Primary Minister Justin Trudeau came in. Conservatives now have a new chief with a new agenda.

This has protesters, backed by their most current leader, Pierre Poilievre, screaming axe the tax, with no plan it started off with Harper. Was Harper mistaken? Were being the Liberals wrong in thieving just one as well many strategies? One particular issue is or for absolutely sure: Amongst Poilievre and Trudeau, our rate of baloney has long gone up.
