City of Regina statement - Parking enforcement

Thu Jul 13 12:40:04 CST 2017

We are aware of a video that has been posted online detailing an incident between a downtown bar owner and one of our Bylaw Enforcement Officers. The safety of our employees is paramount in the work they do on behalf of all Regina residents and that needs to be respected at all times.

We take seriously the efforts being undertaken by restaurants and bars in our City to ensure patrons get home safely after consuming alcohol and we thank them for those endeavours.

After engaging with downtown businesses on a plan to deal with the issue, the City will be installing – by this afternoon – late-night taxi zones along Victoria Avenue at Scarth Street. We are confident this will address the needs of patrons while also protecting the safety of pedestrians and motorists in the area.
