With ~205,000 people, Saskatoon is the largest city in the province of Saskatchewan. The name, Saskatoon is derived from 'mis-sask-quah-toomina', the Cree Indian name for a local berry. When Saskatchewan became a province, the federal government established the provincial capital in Regina and the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon. As with the rest of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon does not change over to daylight savings time and so remains on Central Standard Time zone year round.

    Very Grundgy and Dirty, we thought the building was condemed from the out side, it looks as if the building could fall down on you, Dirty Dirty everything about it is Gross, the Health Officials have to take a closer look at this place.

    A very helpful and enjoyable page on Saskatoon, one that also gave me a few laughs! Even though I'm now living in Regina, I still havn't been to Saskatoon - but I am looking forward to it after reading your page.

    Saskatoon seems to be a nice place! Certainly would try some ice-cream from that bus.
