TV DOCUMENTARY UNCOVERS PESTS THAT CAN GET UNDER YOUR SKIN
Halifax, N.S. - October 29, 2013 They drink your blood while you sleep. They can attack you at home, in a hotel, at the hospital, or even on a plane. You might have them and not even know it. Trying to get rid of them could cost you thousands of dollars and if you're travelling, it could inadvertently cost you your life. They are bed bugs - and if you're unlucky you might become their next victim.
RENOVATION OF RENTAL HOUSING PROJECT UNDERWAY IN PRINCE ALBERT
Tenants at Pineland Apartments, located at 235 – 10th Street East in Prince Albert will enjoy improved housing quality as a result of renovations being made to 23 one-bedroom suites. The renovations are being made possible by a joint investment from the Governments of Canada and Saskatchewan.
Randy Hoback, Member of Parliament for Prince Albert, on behalf of Candice Bergen, Minister of State (Social Development), along with Member of the Legislative Assembly for Prince Albert Northcote Victoria Jurgens on behalf of Social Services Minister and Minister responsible for Saskatchewan Housing Corporation June Draude made the announcement today. The project is being undertaken by Stewart Property Holdings Ltd.
Tyler Stewart plans to refurbish the 7Up advertisement painted on the outside of 525 20th Street West, the notorious apartment building he's redeveloping into affordable housing.
For Stewart, 36, repainting the ad will link the Riversdale building to a vibrant past that has more in common with the neighbourhood's revitalization than the apartment's violent reputation.
"This building's got stupid amounts of character," Stewart said in an interview, referring to the bricks and mortar of the apartment as Stewart recently bought the nearly 100-year-old building and plans to renovate it into 12 units of one-and two-bedroom affordable rental suites, complete with kitchens and bathrooms. He wants to restore and preserve some of the building's historical features, including the now boarded-up warehouse windows and Tyndall stone.
