Remembrance

Remembrance

Another Remembrance Day, commemorating the sacrifice of those who died during military conflicts of the past. This monument was erected to honour those who perished at Dieppe, during WWII. It stands in a park in the neighbourhood named for that battle. It features the flags of Canada, Saskatchewan, and Regina, as well as three plaques.

Alley Door Art Project – Part V

This is the final installment of a series of posts featuring the works of provincial artists that were chosen to be part of the city of Regina’s Alley Door Art Project. The doors are located in the downtown district, and are a lovely change from the usual gang graffiti and that of vandals.

I was quite taken by the number of ways people remind dog owners to be diligent about cleaning up after their pets.

This person even supplies plastic bags for the task. Let’s hope the dog walkers are as thoughtful.
