Is that pressure treated wood planters with edible plants? :stunned: Hopefully they are lined with something. Cedar is a much better choice for those of us who don't like chemicals leeching into our food.

Funny you should mention that, I was just thinking the same thing! That's a big no no. The chemicals from the wood will surely seep into the soil.

Yes, the "new" pressure treated wood is safe for use for raised garden frames... with a few precautions!

With everything up for auction at Macdougall's, does anyone know what happened with Tumblers? Word is they have reopened, but the Macdougall auction list is pretty comprehensive. Has it been sold to new owners who have 100% redone the inside?

As per their Twitter and Facebook accounts, they are closed down until Sept for a major renovation though they are still open for takeout.

I have trouble believing this since the tax man was there seizing stuff a few weeks back.

yes, once again the euphemistic "CLOSED FOR RENOVATIONS"

Yeah they were shut down by the CRA. My friend was a corporate auditor at the CRA a few years ago, and he told me that the only way you'd have the CRA come and do a seizure/raid is if you are under investigation for tax fraud. They wouldn't do a seizure for being in arrears as the CRA is not in the business of owning pizza ovens and reselling them. He said they would have likely seized the cash registers, all paper articles in the building, all electronic devices, and likely done the same at the owner's home as well.

I suspect the owner knew it was coming too, as they posted the renovations notice a few days before the raid. Just from hearing around from people involved with the owner, he wasn't exactly an above-board kind of guy, and was pretty shady.

Rumour is that he's driving the Tumblers food truck around town to avoid having it seized. I saw it on Albert St this weekend (didn't look like the tax man driving it).

I also saw it operating in Wascana Park a month or so ago. I wonder if he is only accepting cash payments? He could also have a different business set up for the food truck, which might put it outside the scope of the CRA investigation into his other business.

I haven't been by to confirm this, but I've heard that Tumblers is still selling pizza by the slice at the Grant Rd location. I have a hard time believing this, given the number of critical items on the auction site (2 pizza ovens, 1 convection oven, numerous pizza pans, raw ingredients, etc). If true, I assumed a corporate structure like you're describing above... but I have a hard time believing they're operating in that location.

Tried Wann IzaKaya at lunch today. It was excellent. Place was full.

Prices were fair and service was good.

Famoso is opening three new stores -- Rochdale (next few weeks), Eastgate (2017) and Lloyminster (later).
(No idea where Eastgate is in Regina.)

Thanks. I had no idea that was what they were calling it. :)

Proposal passes #yqrcc regarding Tim Hortons at 166 University Park Drive

I thought the Tim's was going in on the other side of Arcola near the Pharmasave but apparently not. Anyone know which spot in the mall it is taking? Is there space next to WP?

Rumors swirling that the Pump is closing and being replaced by a Bushwakkers inspired pub.

A search for 166 University Park Drive brings up Trifon's Pizza. Is that whole strip of the mall the same address distinguished by letters or something?
