After Hours Security

A Saskatchewan small town bar owner who stayed back after last call early Saturday August 17  to do the books was robbed by three armed people with their faces covered. The owner was struck in the head with some kind of weapon.

The till and the float for the VLTs were emptied of at least $5,000. It is estimated a few hundred dollars’ worth of liquor was also stolen.

For SHHA members who operate bars and nightclubs – this is a good time to remind your staff of your security policies, particularly the importance of locking up immediately after closing time.

CONGRATULATIONS MOSAIC STADIUM: RHFA Certification

Mosaic Stadium was awarded a Rick Hansen Foundation Accessibility Certified Gold rating making it the first stadium in the world to achieve this standard and the first facility in Saskatchewan to receive a Rick Hansen Foundation Accessibility Certification! This is a massive development for the province of Saskatchewan as the City of Regina leads us to a more inclusive and accessible community.  

 Today, one in seven Canadian adults identify as having a disability. This number is projected to increase to one in five by 2036. Providing universal access to safe, inclusive and accessible public spaces is also an important part of the United Nation’s Envision 2030 Sustainable Development goals. It’s time to rethink how people of all abilities access and use our public spaces.

Rick Hansen Foundation Accessibility Certification™ (RHFAC) is a rating system that helps both property owners and managers measure the accessibility of their buildings and sites, and promotes increased access through the adoption of Universal Design principles.
