Quotation|Brenda Bakken Lackey called Highway 35 an “embarrassment’’ and a hazard for truckers’ business since it was turned into a gravel roadway last year [2004] . “When it rains, there is mud and when it is dry, there is flying dust and gravel,’’ she said. “Truckers from my constituency tell me that the U.S. Customs officials say they are not going to put up with the mud that is coming across on the trucks. There is also concerns about grain seeds and weeds coming across in the mud on truck tires.’’...he Highway Minister Maynard Sonntag said. “Highway No. 6 has a much higher traffic count, many more trucks in and out from the States than Highway No. 35 would have.’’ |Canadian Press cite web

] The city is situated on a broad, flat, treeless plain. There is an abundance of parks and greenspaces: all of its trees — some 300,000 [Coneghan.] — shrubs and other plants were hand-planted and Regina's considerable beauty is entirely man-made. [ [http://esask.uregina.ca/entry/regina.html "Regina," "The Encyclopedia of Saskatchewan"] . Retrieved 11 July 2007.] As in other prairie cities, American elms were planted in front yards in residential neighbourhoods and on boulevards along major traffic arteries and are the dominant species in the urban forest.
