    Sask. to get a head start on construction

    The 2009 highway construction season may start earlier than usual because the provincial government announced the first phase of construction tenders of $168.6 million this week.

    The announcement has come earlier than in previous years -- tenders are usually announced later in the year or in early January, according to Highways and Infrastructure Minister Wayne Elhard.

    City planning for inland port project


    Despite tough economic times around the world, the City of Regina plans to borrow several million dollars to fund some major projects.

    At tonight's city council meeting, councillors will consider a recommendation for the city solicitor to prepare bylaws to authorize borrowing up to $50 million for the design and construction of phase 1 of the inland port project. Designing and constructing water, wastewater and drainage services for the phase 1 area -- located west of Pinkie Road and to be home to the Canadian Pacific intermodal facility and the Loblaw distribution centre -- is estimated to cost $50 million.

    Land claim deal of historic proportions

    Three Saskatchewan First Nations are about to receive a land claim settlement of nearly $80 million, one of the largest of its kind in Saskatchewan history.

    The Cote, Key and Keeseekoose First Nations, located in east-central Saskatchewan, will together receive a total of $78.2 million for the 12,800 acres known as the Pelly Haylands, which were taken from them in 1899 and 1905.

    Province offers producers a deal

    The provincial government says it will give some farmers and ranchers who want to purchase their leased Crown agricultural land a break on the price.

    "We're trying to get that ownership back in the producers' hands," said Agriculture Minister Bob Bjornerud.

    About 1.6 million of the 7.2 million acres of agricultural Crown land will be eligible for sale, including 600,000 acres of cultivated land and one million acres of pasture land, the minister said.

    Saskatchewan's future rosy

    Saskatchewan will avoid a recession or serious economic downturn, thanks to its diversified, resource-based economy that should weather the economic storm better than most, says Scotiabank's chief economist.

    "Saskatchewan is in the sweet spot because not only have the demographics turned favourable ... but the balance in what's produced here is pretty good too,'' said Warren Jestin in an interview Monday.

    City set to deny condo projects

    Recent surveys to gauge tenants' opinions of five proposed condominium conversions in Regina have left some feeling "harassed, intimidated or pressured" and worried about their personal safety, according to city administration reports.

    But a representative for the company proposing the conversions called the tenants' claims "unsubstantiated."

    Wall won't revisit equalization

    Premier Brad Wall said Saskatchewan won't revisit the issue of equalization despite federal Finance Minister Jim Flaherty's plan to tinker with the funding program.

    And he said the fact Ontario is receiving equalization for the first time is a sign of the seriousness of the economic situation in much of Canada.

    Sliding riverbank in line for $2.6M fix

    It will take a deep trench, 15,000 cubic metres of dirt and $2.6 million to halt the slide of the South Saskatchewan riverbank.

    For more than a year, Saskatchewan Crescent homeowners have watched as the postcard-pretty riverbank just south of the University Bridge cracked and fell away, taking a scenic bend of the Meewasin trail with it.

    Major reno eyed for Mosaic Stadium

    REGINA -- The home of the Saskatchewan Roughriders may be in line for a multimillion-dollar facelift -- or a replacement, Regina's mayor says.

    "The status quo is not an option. So it is going to be one or the other, it is going to be a retro(fit) or new (stadium) and it will be done based on what we can afford to do with our partners," Pat Fiacco said Wednesday.
