Honda Recalling vehicles to fix seat belts
Honda is recalling 52 thousand vehicles in Canada to fix faulty seat belts as the front ones may not latch properly.
Vehicles being recalled include: 2017-2020 CR-V, 2018-2019 Accord, 2018-2020 Odyssey, 2019 Insights, and 2019-2020 Acura RDX.
Owners can be expected to be notified by letter starting mid-April.
City moves forward motion to install accessible elevator at Regina's renewed Wascana Pool
On Wednesday, executive committee voted in favour of a motion that would install an outside elevator at the new Wascana Pool, allowing everyone to use the waterslides.
Under the current design, the taller waterslides are only accessible by stairs. However, the smaller slide is wheelchair-friendly.
Following research and consultation, it recommended installing an elevator to make the pool 100 per cent accessible. Councillors believe it would be one of the first outdoor pool elevators in North America.
The elevator would cost $555,000 to install. It would cost another $27,000 annually to operate.
The renewed Wascana Pool is on track to open this year. However, it would take an additional 12 months to install an elevator. The city manager told council that the elevator would be fully operational no later than 2025.
