City of Saskatoon North Downtown Master Plan Open House

On January 26th 2013, the City of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada will hold a meeting at the Saskatoon Farmers' Market where the City of Saskatoon will start a master plan for the North Downtown area, and they want to hear what your thoughts and comments are.

The session runs from 8:30 am to 1:00 pm. The City wants to design a new neighbourhood that is: environmentally friendly, well-connected to the things you need to meet your daily needs, easy to walk around in, celebrates the city’s heritage, built around amenities like green public spaces, and a vibrant and great place to live.

New Blog – AFGS Acadian Heritage News

The tag line is “Focus of this blog is to provide news and information regarding Acadian Heritage”.

It is a Heritage Blog by the American-French Genealogical Society, and although it is not strictly a Canadian blog, it is about the Acadians – and there are genealogical societies on both sides of the border, so the blog caught my eye over the weekend as something I would like to read..

One of the blogs is “As tough as her ancestors” which the blogger tells about the being interviewed by his niece about what it is like being Acadian, and shows pictures of her exhibit and video of the process – very interesting! The exhibit “Nova Scotia - Acadian”

Another blog was the 34th Annual Acadian Festival which was held at
Madawaska, Maine on August 11th, and a visit to the The Acadian Historic Village – Caraquet, NB.
