New Democratic Party leader Dwain Lingenfelter concedes defeat to Brad Wall’s Saskatchewan Party as the results of the Saskatchewan provincial election are tallied on Monday, Nov. 7. The Sask Party captured 49 seats in the provincial legislature with 64.2 per cent of the popular vote, 11 of them new; meanwhile, the beleaguered NDP’s 31.9 per cent brought them only 9 seats, an all-time low for the party, and the Liberal and Green parties failed to win a single seat. In his victory speech, Wall proclaimed, “This new Saskatchewan that you have built is stronger and prouder and better than it is ever been, and we are not going back.” Lingenfelter, who failed to hold onto his own seat, resigned as leader minutes after his concession speech.
Occupiers in Saskatoon called it quits over a week ago, but here in Regina, despite a few setbacks, there were still 22 tents standing as of Sunday night, and one partially standing.
Looks like someone forget to check the forecast before leaving his house. Too bad for him summer is over, just like the Roughriders chance of making the playoffs.
Who says you can’t still be green in winter. Be sure to grab a copy of the Carillon next week for tips on how to winterize your bike.
Camping outside in these winter conditions can be quite dangerous. Regina Occupiers are doing there best to stay warm and frostbite free.
A little wind and snow won’t force these Occupiers to quit their efforts.
