Economic Ranking[edit]

Both Manitoba and Saskatchewan are ranked 6th on their respective pages. This should be changed. 1 Feb 2010.

Climate change in Saskatchewan[edit]

The section on climate change is well-referenced and informative. However, it is beyond the scope of a general article on Saskatchewan. I propose creating it as a standalone article with a short summary and link (see main article Climate change in Saskatchewan) in this article. Comments? Sunray (talk) 17:08, 6 April 2012 (UTC)

That makes very good sense. Someone has done quite a bit of work there. It deserves it own article. Saffron Blaze (talk) 19:54, 6 April 2012 (UTC)
Support, absolutely. The additions are far too much for this article. Franamax (talk) 20:19, 6 April 2012 (UTC)

Official Language[edit]

Sask is not officially bilingual French/English. Although it is not effectively uni-lingual English either. http://esask.uregina.ca/entry/bilingualism.html

Looks good. Suggest you use it as a reference and clarify the status in the article. – S. Rich (talk) 22:39, 1 May 2013 (UTC)

Four demonyms?[edit]

Do we really need to list four demonyms? I feel like the one used by the government is official enough to be the one-and-only listed here. We don't list "Iwegian" under Iowa, for example, even though it's a word that pops up from time to time. Krychek (talk) 16:54, 21 April 2014 (UTC)

Support: If it was cut down to two. My choices would be Saskatchewanian and Saskatchewanite however Saskatchewanian is the only official demonym. -- Kayoty (talk) 17:27, 21 April 2014 (UTC)


Province of Saskatchewan Locator Map used in infoboxes[edit]

I started a conversation on the help desk regarding the map of Saskatchewan under the title Error in maps and therefore in the GPS coordinates. The map titled File:Canada_Saskatchewan_location_map.svg does not look my province of Saskatchewan. There should be curvilinear lines north and south. The eastern and western borders albeit are parallel lines, however they are in no way parallel to each other. I see the map NordNordWest used as a template File:Canada_Saskatchewan_relief_location_map.jpg, but it is not a good one at all. The boundaries for Saskatchewan have never changed, I think the cartograher who made File:Canada_Saskatchewan_relief_location_map.jpg took a short cut and made it rectangular with square corners in error. This one MapSK.JPG shows the not parallel east west boundaries and the curved north south borders the best, but it should be oriented more north and south and not off on a diagonal. This also shows the borders well. Saskatchewan Municipalities.png, or this one SK-Canada-province.png. I have contacted user_talk:NordNordWest, the creator of the SVG locater map who seems to have good map making skills BTW. I know they have to be rather particular to work with the GPS robot. Just thought I would start a conversation here, and on the Saskatchewan Wiki Project in this regards for more input. Kind Regards SriMesh | talk 14:43, 6 March 2015 (UTC)
