The Saskatoon Forestry Farm Park & Zoo released an exciting new video ‘Caring for Cougars’ following a recent health check on cougars Malcolm and Jethro.  

“Our mandate is to focus on conservation, research, and education” says Tim Sinclair-Smith, Zoo Manager.  “This video provides an opportunity for people to learn more about what goes on when a captive animal visits the vet.  It demonstrates that our facility emphasizes the importance of quality health programs and does more than simply display animals.”

With City Council’s approval this week, the City will move forward with developing options to expand the Waste Services Utility. Moving black-bin collection to a user-pay system would reduce property taxes by $8.9 million -- about 4%.  Put another way, this would transfer the cost of some or all waste management services to a monthly utility bill. The City will meet with residents in the fall and report back to Council in early 2018.
