Historical Note: One of Regina 's oldest businesses is the Regina Leader- Post, which began as the Regina Leader. A group of prominent citizens approached lawyer Nicholas Flood Davin soon after his arrival in Regina and urged him to set up a newspaper. Davin accepted their offer - and their $5000 in seed money. The Regina Leader printed its first edition on March 1, 1883 . The Leader Building stood on the southwest corner of 11 th Avenue and Hamilton Street .
