I'm not even sure what you're suggesting, that a company continue to lose money because a rag-tag group of vendors wants space?
I would love the City to partner with private to fund a newly built market building on any of the Rose Street/Broad Street vacant lots so that the Centennial Market vendors can go there. It would also be nice to have a foot traffic connection in that section of downtown to spur other building investment in that sector that currently has no development.

Rumour I've heard is that developers are all holding off on starting much new development right now because they all want the railyards and don't want to get committed elsewhere when the city is ready to start the railyards. I can't see it. Railyards are years off, esp if the city really means it when they say Taylor Field first.

The secret to understanding the City of Regina is that they never really mean what they say. Or they do, until the next committee overrides the previous plan.

Based on their site map it looks like the building east of Shoppers is designated to be commercial. Looks like the right size for a Dollarama. I am willing to take bets that you will be disappointed

Yeah I think you are right, based on their colour coding.

Sask. cities among least desirable places to move; finder.com

Obviously the majority of the people surveyed are from Ontario. Few people out west know about St Catherine's or London. They probably have never been out west except for maybe Vancouver or Calgary.

This is from CJME/CKOM (link below)

So my two thoughts on this poll are:
  1. The news article doesn't link to the poll or give the exact question (a great example of modern journalism), but the article makes it seem like it was prefaced with "if you could afford to..." If that was the case, then obviously Regina would be last, as it's not a nice place compared to Toronto or Vancouver if money was no option. If the question had been phrased "where would you move with your current income?" then I suspect the major cities would be lower...though I don't know if Regina would really improve.
  2. Regina and Saskatoon may be good places to live compared to the majority of places globally...but there are also a lot nicer places in Canada. I'm not insulted by this ranking, I was born here and have simply not moved away (like the majority of native-born Canadians in their respective cities). But the list seems pretty accurate.

Interesting. I have been to every single place on both the high- and low-scoring city list.

This survey does not seem to measure anything meaningful. "f they were able to afford a home there" is a huge qualifier and skews the results as that is not a reality for the majority of Canadians in a few of the cities.

"Where are Canadians willing to move" might be more of a function of where they are currently living than any other factor. If you currently live in Oshawa, you might be more "willing" to move to Toronto than to Vancouver, for example.

As PhotoJim I have been to all of these places and have worked in most at one time or another. Having been born and raised with in a half hour of Regina and lived there for 20+ years I have seen a very disappointing trend in Regina in the last number of years. The city has become very dirty, poorly maintained streets with lots of gravel,pot holes, unpainted lines, weeds growing everywhere even the concrete medians. also a over abundance of unkempt properties residential and commercial. Nobody seem to care about the community they live in that goes for property owners, businesses ,civic and provincial property's. Regina has earned the title of "Dirty Little Backwater"

A new Oxygen Yoga and Fitness will be going up in the Greens on Gardner near Save On this winter. That will be their third franchise for Regina. I am a frequent user of the current two locations and since some of my favourite instructors are apparently going to the new one, I may have to check that one out too.

Driving past Victoria Square yesterday, looked like they were starting to break up the pavement to the east of Wendy's/Horton's. If I recall, that's where Sobey's next liquor store is going?

Just what the SE needs -another liquor store. There will soon be 6 between Arcola and Vic E.: Metro, Urban Cellars, SLGA, Superstore with Sobeys and Costco on the way.

I think there are 4, but not one in the north end. Lucid is opening this weekend in the former Burger Baron, if you call that north.

Yep - 4... Tweed x 2; Wiid; Cannabis Co. Lucid would make 5.

Funny that Sobeys wouldn't align the branding to the grocery store the liquor store is near - 2 Liquor Stores next to Safeways could be Safeway Liquor...common in AB (might also give the impression that they have less control over the urban retail market).

I folks - I've been away for a while, so I'm sure this is posted in here somewhere... what's the scope/goal of the project on Albert/12th (Conexus/CGI ground-level... where Henderson Cafe used to be).
