New Government Should Shorten The Name Of The Province Of 'SASKATCHEWAN'

It is painfully obvious that although Saskatchewan is an easy province to draw a picture of, it is difficult to both say and spell.

In view of the fact that BOTH the Premier of Saskatchewan and the Prime Minister of Canada cannot spell the name correctly, the new Brad Wall government is hereby urged to shorten the name of this great prairie province to 'S-A-S-K-W-I-N'!!

from Wikipedia

The province's name comes from the Saskatchewan River, whose name comes from its Cree designation: kisiskāciwani-sīpiy, meaning "swift flowing river".


If you can't spell or pronounce the name, then you're not fit to lead the jurisdiction.
(That's a slight reworking about standing the heat and the kitchen.)

That's a good idea. The Rebranding effort by the NDP really let our province down, since we can barely fit on most billboards as it is.

Huh? ... I loved the "!"

The makers of Viagra would be most disappointed to lose to ability to claim that a tattoo that says 'Swan' before, says 'Saskatchewan' after. ;-)

Tom let's help readers out with a visual of the point you are making:


Yup! Good point.

I'm slow... it took me a while to get that one! :P

I assume this is your Idea of a April Fools joke Leftdog.

And I joined the Rhinoceros Party of Canada today.

NOT, hahaha. April Fools!

Glad you enjoyed that, Dawg. Stop by PP. My top article there is a matter of interest to you.

Thanks Tom!!

You're most welcome and I look forward to your choices for passing it on.
