Bylaw officers from the City of Regina have unofficially requested that the
occupyregina camp be shut down under threat of enforcement of
unconstitutional bylaws. We will be holding two meetings tomorrow at 2pm and
5:30pm to discuss our response which will be presented at a rally at city
hall Wednesday at noon.

Up until a few days ago, we had an overused camp toilet for people to use
at night. This was good at the beginning, but as our numbers grew it became
impractical. Then the Council Of Canadians generously rented us a proper
portapotty.

Thus, a potential hygeinic nightmare was averted… then earlier today city
bylaw enforcement came and took the portapotty away, citing some health
concern but not answering the 2 main questions…

How does the portapotty at Occupy Regina constitute a health violation when
the same portapotties are commonly used at festivals in the same park, as
well as on construction sites everywhere, and how can it be more of a health
concern than the situation that could develop from our NOT having one?

It has also been brought to our attention that the power cut off by the city
to the park is donated by SaskPower(a crown corp. owned by the people),
which means that the power wasn’t costing taxpayers a cent yet was cut off
leaving campers without power.
If you’d like to know too, contact city hall and ask them.

the regina mom feels wealthy these days. She was fortunate enough to be a recipient of an Emerging Artists Award from the Canada Council for the Arts last spring.  There’s no scramble for contract work and there’s a bit of extra money around her house.  So she got her hubby to blow twenty bucks on the thereginamom.com domain name.  And when the rewrite of the children’s literature manuscript is completed — which had better be soon because the end of the grant period is fast approaching — thereginamom.com will get a makeover.

the regina mom has spent some time over the past few months writing and contemplating her writing life.  Blogging is one place where various pieces of her life weave together.  So she’s looking forward to again crafting blogposts.

Be forewarned, dear Reader, the regina mom likes Niki Ashton.

Later today, Niki Ashton, the Member of Parliament for Churchill, will announce her candidacy for the Leadership of the New Democratic Party of Canada!  It’d be great to have a woman from one of the Prairie provinces as Leader of the NDP — as the next Prime Minister of Canada!

Niki’s from northern Manitoba.  Take a Northern woman from a Prairie province to the House of Commons and you’ll see more than a little bit of Amazing!   Niki has demonstrated that time and again and could do it in one of four or five languages.  Unafraid of standing up to speak Truth to Power, Niki Ashton has risen in the House to challenge the Harper regime on important issues such as healthcare and housing, infrastructure and transportation, education and economic development, support for residential school survivors and the North and its People.  American film-maker, Michael Moore, noticed her work.  As did The Huffington Post.

So, ya.  A Northern woman from a Prairie province!  Niki Ashton is sure to make the NDP Leadership race an interesting one!  the regina mom is watching.
