The big, flat, rectangle in the middle of Canada with a name that anyone who's not from Saskatchewan pronounces wrong. For future reference--"Sas-KATCH-ew-un" OR "Sas-KATCH-ew-in" OR "Sas-KATCH-ew-en" is acceptable. . .but not not not Sas-katch-ew-WAAAAAN. If you say it that way, it just screams you're from Ontario. Or Texas.
Suffer from paralyzing claustrophobia? Well, you've come to the right place Land of Living Skies
, as our license plates say, is pretty accurate--that's pretty much all that's living. Our trees are generally stick thin and only look alive for four out of twelve months. Well, okay, so we're alive for a third of the year. That ain't half bad, eh?
NDP government that was elected by mostly farmers. I don't understand it, either.
The biggest city in Saskatchewan is Saskatoon
, which, nope, is not the capital, even though it is home to a relatively adequate school, the University of Saskatchewan
. Surprising, really.
The capital city of Saskatchewan is the city that rhymes with fun--Regina
. A city that is composed of three quarters flatness, and one quarter man-made lake full of goose crap. It's a pretty exciting place to be.
Saskatchewan is full of names like Moose Jaw
and Swift Current
and Prince Albert
and North Battleford
. Apparently Saskatchewan has a thing for two-worded names. Except the original Cree is probably one long word that is slowly being forgotten along with the majority of their culture. Unfortunately.
Speaking of unfortunately, there is an unfortunate amount of racism in Saskatchewan. But hey, teach the world to sing in perfect harmony, and I'm sure the province can continue to turn a blind eye to the racism and social problems that exist, and people will continue to never know where the hell Saskatchewan is.
But they're missing out!
Tourist: Hey, can you show me around Edmonton?
Saskatchewanian: Sorry, I'm not from Alberta.
Tourist: Hey, can you show me around Calgary?
Saskatchewanian: Sorry, I'm not from Alberta.
Tourist: Fuck this, I just want to get to Ontario!
Albertan: Well, you'll have to go east through Saskatchewan and Manitoba first.
Tourist: What?! I only have a Canadian passport?? Wait, is this one of those French speaking places?
Albertan: You mean Quebec?
Albertan: Dude, just go to Vancouver.
Home of the Canadian Public Healthcare System. Home of the first Democratic Socialist government government in North America. Home of farmers. Home of Ukrainian immigrants.
Easiest political body in the world to draw.
Saskatchewan's capitol is Regina, the city that rhymes with fun!
the only place where you can lose your dog, and watch it run away for 4 days.
saskatchewan is flat, like edmontons chance at winning the stanley cup.
Easiest province to draw, beautiful skies, hundreds of lakes and hills (contrary to popular belief), and a fabulous music scene. Unfortunately, it is a place where many good people leave, making former Saskatchwan residences known throughout Canada (especially Vancouver) as incredibly talented and hard working people. But consequently, they are leaving the province to fester with age and incompetence. It is an incredibly beautiful and peaceful place to be from, though most people simply pass through on the highway, which is a lame-ass way to see somewhere. If you are awsome, please stop leaving Saskatchewan because a province can't be run by aging farmers. Look at Alberta.
Albertan: "You must be a communist, eh?"
Saskatchwanian: "Nope, just a socialist."
Albertan: "Is that anything like a capitalist? Cuz I'm one of those."
Ontarian: "Ooo, ooo! Me too! Me too!"
Saskatchewanian: "Uh, you guys are weird. I'm moving to Vancouver."
A place used by TV shows when they want to name place that no one can find on a map.
It's actually just a retangle in the middle of Canada where farmers grow grain.
Tourists: Can you tell us where we are?
SaskPerson: You're is SASK-AT-CHE-WAN!
Tourists: Honey, they don't speak English here?
The big flat rectangle in the middle of Canada.
Saskatchewan is very beautiful,
the southern half of the province is endless rolling farmland while the northern portion is beautiful boreal forest dotted with lakes.
The population of saskatchewan is just over a million.
About half the pop. lives in the two major cities saskatoon
and the capital regina
. The remainder of the population lives throughout saskatchewans warm and friendly small towns and on the endless farmlands of southern saskatchewan.
Saskatchewan is a great place to live and if you dont like it here you must be from Toronto!
We are going to Prince Albert National Park in Saskatchewan for our camping trip this summer.
canadian province that no one can spell. flat expanses of praries, home to canada's best football fans. the capital city of regina rhymes with fun (pronounced like vagina). the brithplace of modern canada back in the '50s, when tommy douglas set up the liberal reforms that now guide the nation.
saskatchewan is way out there.
