Can't shift it backwards too far - there should be a federal election in October 2019... the provincial legislation allows for provincial elections to be shifted to April if the overlap with a federal election period.

Fixed election dates seem like a good idea on paper. Reality? less ideal.

Of course, there's nothing stopping the prov or feds from dissolving the Leg/House early.
And fixed election laws are just that—laws. They can be overridden by the sitting legislature. They have the same weight or importance as anti-deficit laws: none.

Lots of activity in the parking area for Dilawri across from the old Sears call center. They are milling the surface of the lot and jack hammering out concrete.

Anyone know of anything? I thought I heard a rumor of a Land Rover and/or Porsche dealer going in there, or are they just resurfacing the lot (boring).

Mayor Michael Fougere was also in attendance. He’s thankful the province is investing in affordable housing for one of Canada’s fastest growing cities.

“This is great news for the city,” he says. “76 units, $19 million investment is really important.”

At $250,000 / unit, I fail to see how this is affordable. They should be able to bring affordable development to a price that is below market value.

This is the cost not the price. They are rented at below market rents.

I see they are tearing down three houses at 600 Victoria Avenue. I saw on facebook it is planned to be a medical clinic.

Does anyone know what it is planned to look like? I did a quick search of the Regina Planning Commission minutes from last year but couldn't find it mentioned anywhere. Maybe it doesn't need to go to the commission because they were already zoned appropriately?
