Description

Saskatchewan has a rich and diverse history--sometimes unusual, if not quirky. History Matters brings together some of the Saskatchewan stories that Bill Waiser originally published in a bi-weekly column in the Saskatoon Star-Phoenix newspaper. Read about Saskatchewan's first Gopher Day in May 1917 when school kids waged battle against the pesky "enemy of production," the Saskatoon high-jumper who has the distinction of being the only Canadian woman to win an Olympic gold medal in an individual track-and-field event, the sacred Indigenous boulder that was unceremoniously blown up to make way for the South Saskatchewan River Dam project, or the Prince Albert druggist who was elected to the House of Commons and appointed to the Senate but never uttered a word in either chamber.
