I’ve got a surprise announcement to make on RUE today (a surprise even for me!). I’ve been thinking for awhile that it would be nice to have a feature on the blog to post a roundup of news articles pertaining to Regina, the other cities in Saskatchewan (Saskatoon, Prince Albert, Moose Jaw) and even a few national urban news items.
Today, that little seed of an idea became a reality with the help of a great friend and mediaphile, Sabrina Cataldo! Sabrina will be our newest contributor providing us with links to news stories and editorials about urban development, policy, and local issues in Regina and Saskatchewan. She’s smart, sassy, and tech-savvy… and very generous to offer her time to us! We’ll have more info about Sabrina up in our ‘Contributors’ section soon.
Now we just need to come up with something fun to call this new feature… suggestions?
