The capital city of the province of Saskatchewan, Canada. Pronounced "Re-j-I-nah" as opposed to the often used "Re-j-ee-nah" and named after the latin word for Queen.
Regina is estimated to contain 185,000 people. Its downtown residential areas are disappearing as the majority of development exists on the south-eastern portion of the city. The central neighbourhoods are becoming more prone to crime and poverty and disportionally represent people of aboriginal descent.
Its attractions include the IMAX, the Saskatchewan Science Centre, the Agridome, Taylor Field (the provincial CFL team the Saskatchewan Rough Riders), the RCMP barracks, etc.
In the past, Regina played a pivotal role in Canada's agricultural market but is presently moving towards a greater role in natural resources, specifically oil, natural gas, kimberlite.
Historically a left-leaning city, currently a provincial NDP stronghold. Regina represents one of the largest native populations in Canada and celebrates its many cultures with an annual celebration called "Mosaic".
Regina also is home to the University of Regina. GO RAMS!
The city that rhymes with fun.
