We’re growing. We’re changing. We’re going to be great.
There’s something in the air in Saskatoon – and no, it’s not the smell of a certain plant yet, nor the smell of the agriculture “byproducts” on the university campus; it’s something much bigger – change. It’s the underlying hope that all Saskatoonians (should) have. Saskatoon is changing – for the better.
While we disagree on things like bike lanes, garbage bin sizes, recycling programs, potholes, snow/street clearing, fire bans, and much more (seriously, it took me 30 seconds to come up with list), one thing we can all agree on is that Saskatoon is changing.
Now, you may be wondering, “If change is happening, why did you make this site?”
Saskatoon has this finicky habit of not being forward-thinking – and I say that in the nicest way possible. For some reason, although we have one of the youngest median ages in the country, we, collectively, have a hard time accepting new projects that change the entire landscape of Saskatoon. But we need to – these projects spur economic development, create jobs, and allow our city to grow.
