ADDICTION RESOURCE GUIDE FOR KIDS AND PARENTS
Most people have heard the word "addiction" before.
It's a word used to describe compulsive use of alcohol, drugs,
or even things like video games or social media to a level where
it has a bad impact on the user's life.

WEBPAGE TO HELP IDENTIFY AND COPE
Landfill, Yard Waste Depot Hours, Weekly Garbage Collection to
Shift to Summer Schedule
weather approaches and signs of spring appear, weekly garbage
collection resumes and the City’s Landfill and Yard Waste Depot
Beginning the week of Monday, April 3,

City-wide rollout of green Food and Yard Waste

a.m. to 7 p.m.,
gates close 15 minutes prior to closing to allow vehicles to
unload and exit the Landfill by closing time.
The free Yard Waste Depot located near the Landfill will reopen

THE NORTHWEST LEISURE CENTRE WILL SHUT
DOWN FOR 6 WEEKS BEGINNING JUNE 12, 2023
The City of Regina recently amended the Clean Property Bylaw
#9881 (click here)
requiring: "Every owner of land adjoining a sidewalk shall
clear the sidewalk of all snow and ice within forty-eight (48)
hours of the time when the snow or ice was formed or deposited
thereon." As a taxpayer, like many taxpayers, it's felt that the
City has overstepped its bounds and stomped on the rights of the
homeowners. We have snow, that's a given, and for the most part
homeowners do a good job of keeping the City's sidewalks
passable in winter. A case of overzealous enforcement by the
City is the story of an individual with multiple health
impairments, who is trying to stay in his home, but gets hit
with a $424.00 fine. (The
charge was later reversed). Totally
ridiculous. See the story
here. As a Community Association we are against the position
taken by the City and that portion of the Bylaw in question.
Part 3 of Bylaw #9881 should be repealed immediately or replaced
with something more appropriate. Besides there being so many
parts of Part 3 that are completely untenable there is
information provided by the City on their website at
www.regina.ca which is in
direct conflict with the Bylaw. How did that happen?
