Lindsey Baiton, co-owner of Drip in Regina, has learned to make the most out of a bad situation.

The Saskatchewan Roughriders have dealt with their lack of depth at defensive end with a trade. They also released two veterans.
The Riders picked up veteran Jermaine McElveen from the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in exchange for prospect receiver Lyle Leong Junior.

They dot different areas of the city: vacant lots that seem to stay vacant despite the hot real estate market.

Saskatchewan drivers aren’t likely too thrilled with gas prices creeping ever higher in the province. If you’re avoiding going to the pumps as much as possible, know that there are techniques you can apply to get the most out of your tank of gas—often referred to as hypermiling.

The province is spending $113-million on the project in total. $27-million is coming from the federal government.
A 67-year-old man has been released on conditions after being charged in relating to child luring.
