Need to Know: Door-to-Door Canvassing, Riders, & StatsCan is Hiring
Advisory: Door-to-Door Canvassing
The Regina Police Service has been notified of recent activity of door-to-door canvassers in Regina neighborhoods. There have been questions and concerns about the activity itself, during a pandemic, as well as the credentials of those involved in the canvassing.
At this time, door-to-door canvassing is allowed in Saskatchewan under the current Public Health Order and police have confirmed that some organizations have in fact been canvassing legitimately over the last few weeks. However, we have also received police reports of suspicious canvassing that is performed by people who may be impersonating those from legitimate organizations. As a result, the Regina Police Service is asking residents to be diligent and informed should a canvasser come to your door.
Riders sign WR Williams-Lambert to 1-year extension
The Saskatchewan Roughriders have re-signed wide receiver Jordan Williams-Lambert to a one-year extension.

After a brief stint in the NFL preseason with the Chicago Bears, Williams-Lambert returned to the Green and White to end the 2019 season, playing in three games and recording five receptions for 57 yards.
