I am the Bridge

It’s okay to talk about racism!
Everyone can ‘be the bridge’ to ending racism in Saskatoon by generating ideas of inclusion among residents of the city.
The City of Saskatoon wants to encourage and invite you to talk about racism and ways to eliminate it by sharing videos of your experiences and messages of inclusion.
Racism is a global issue, not unique to Saskatoon. Racism is influenced by a range of historical, social, political and economic factors. It takes different forms in different contexts. An understanding of the nature of racism is essential in order to recognize and counter it successfully.
Share your personal story and messages by answering three questions:
1. What does racism mean to you?
2. How have you experienced racism?
3. I am the bridge to ending racism in Saskatoon by…
You can answer these questions by recording a video on any mobile device (Apple or Android) or computer with a webcam using the OneStory application.  Collected personal stories will be woven together to create a final video and public education campaign that will include billboards and social media posts.
Choose to be the bridge. Share your story. Visit OneStory today.

Protect Our River!

   Minimize

Water from your street drains directly to our river – UNTREATED.

Eight actions you can take to help keep our river clean:
·         Wash your car at a carwash to prevent soap from entering storm drains.
·         Scoop your dog’s poop and put it in the garbage.
·         Take hazardous household chemicals to designated drop-off locations.
·         Fertilize lawns and gardens naturally with compost, grass cuttings, and topsoil.
·         Keep insects away with natural predators such as birds (houses), ladybugs (leaf litter), spiders (leave webs), and bats (boxes).
·         Pull weeds by hand or host a weed pulling party.
·         Sweep dirt and sediment onto the lawn not the street.
·         Fix car leaks so fluids don’t get washed down the storm drains.

Yellow Fish RoadTM
Help build awareness by painting storm drains in your neighbourhood with a yellow fish and the words “rainwater only” This helps remind your friends and neighbours that what goes down our storm drains affects our river.  Contact the Girl Guides to borrow a painting kit and get involved.

Spring Street Sweeping Blitz

   Minimize
The Spring Street Sweeping Blitz is underway.  The blitz is designed to collect the bulk of the debris left behind over winter, which in turn increases efficiency and cost effectiveness of the City Wide Neighbourhood Sweeping program.  The Blitz will also remove sand and debris from medians where snow was stored.  Sweepers will go around parked vehicles during the Blitz program; parking enforcement will not be applied.
