A look at Regina's past referendums

A look at Regina projects that have prompted referendums in the past.

The City of Regina has held many referendums in the past, for projects large and small, when people wanted to have a say in decisions.

Last Friday a city clerk said a petition trying to force another referendum was invalid.  It was brought forward by a group called Regina Water Watch, that was hoping to force a vote on the city's plan for a sewage plant upgrade.

Regina's mayor, Michael Fougere, said Monday he wants citizens to have a say on the waste-water plant anyway.

Below you can view all the referendums that Regina has held in the past.

Each coloured box represents a referendum. Move your mouse over each box to see the proposed project, the cost, and the vote breakdown. Green boxes represents proposals where the "yes" vote won, and red boxes represent proposals where the "no" vote won.
