I’ve spent a couple of days researching and writing about the Regina Bypass. From the outset, the purpose of this road, it seems, was to get truck traffic to the Global Transportation Hub. That’s it. Construction on the Bypass started in the west, in stages, before the government decided to build the southern portion and […]
L’intensité d’une écoute, notamment celle du du monde environnent, écoute quasi existentielle, nous réveille d’une torpeur inconsciente et nous soustrait à d’insidieux glissements vers des acceptations mortifères. Chaque matin, l’oreille doit être, et rester avide de cueillir mille sons, comme des plaisirs ou déplaisirs, qui nous relient ou nous séparent, mais nous maintiennent dans une … Continuer &agra...
Album Review: Hazel English – Wake UP! Live4ever
I just got this response to my email asking for time extension etc for Accessible Streets. What I read in this letter is that disabled pedestrians will be adversely impacted but we don't care. We put consultation documents out in accessible formats (a ...

It’s everywhere. Social media yells: ‘Be resilient’. ‘Keep going’. ‘Here are 5 ways to be positive’. ‘Here are 3 ways to turn this crisis into an opportunity’. We talked about how we are doing right now, in our Resilience Group Coaching Programme. Many of us feel tired and weary.

This morning I waited to set off until the temperature was well above zero. I was feeling rather anxious about this walk, because I knew I would be walking alongside Highway 11, and busy highways are dangerous for pedestrians. I’ve walked that way before; several years back, I walked 35 kilometres to Lumsden on Highway […]
Trees are our companions, man. That said they do not generally walk with us, unless you have been lucky enough to take a stroll with an Ent in your local Fangorn Forest. They do however live where we live and 'breathe' the air we breathe. Some of the first to signal the arrival of spring […]

I leave the house and walk north, towards Victoria Avenue. House sparrows are chirping in the cold air. At Victoria, I turn east. I’m going to walk in that direction, more or less in a straight line, for the next three hours. At the corner of Victoria Avenue and Albert Street, I pause in front of […]
