Saskatchewan INCREASES funding for Saskatoon police
Saskatchewan is bucking the "defund the police" trend by increasing the amount of funding for the Saskatoon police. The total funding is now $5.88 million.
Policing is often Regina's main expense and in 2020, the budget was almost $4 million higher than in 2019. Now, some are calling to put an end to the funding.
Those who wish to hunt in Saskatchewan's big game hunt will have to apply before midnight of May 1 to join, and only online applications will be accepted.
Police in Regina are facing a series of overdoses since recently. They were called out to 14 overdoses over this past weekend with five more on Monday.
