Home Pride

We live in a country that offers as much or more freedom than anywhere else in the world. We have a quality of life in Canada that many parts of the world have never heard of.

We have a comprehensive health care system, an abundance of food, resources like mining, oil, gas, lakes and rivers, an abundant supply of water and a diverse and beautiful landscape with sunsets that are a photographers dream come true.

Saskatchewan is a province that is experiencing an economic boom that is solid, steady growth that our citizens can plan around. We can succeed in life with all that we have in Saskatchewan. It is a place where you can live and raise a family in a relatively safe and secure environment.

Regina is our provinces capital city that offers economic development that has spawned major construction projects, development in the field of education and the arts, culture, sport and entertainment. Regina is on the move lead by a young and inspiring Mayor with the support of strong city councilors. We have a water and sewer system that works and the challenge of smooth streets is an ongoing effort by the City.

We host major events here in Canada, Saskatchewan and, of course, the City of Regina. We have a vibrant tourism industry as people visit to experience the greatness of our land. By any measure, I wouldn’t live anywhere else in the world. As the saying goes, this is as good as it gets.

Is it perfect here? Of course not, and there are many people working hard to make it even a greater place to live work and raise a family.

You have two choices in life. You can be actively involved or stand about and watch it go by. If you missed out on life, then you now know why.

We have a lot to be proud of here and we should all be grateful to all those leaders in life that have built this great place we call home.

Have a Great Day and a Great Life.
