Year in Review

Saskatchewan had its share of viral hits this year. We had a failed selfie in Peru, a puppy rescue near North Battleford and you went crazy for a caller to CBC that couldn't take the weather forecast.

Jared Frank wanted to take a video of himself near a train in Peru. The conductor had other ideas and booted Frank in the head. The video made Frank a YouTube sensation.

A hunter found and rescued a litter of puppies in a field. The humane society was inundated with support from all over North America. The puppies were all eventually adopted.

A teenager's sweater had a statement on it that said 'Got Land? Thank an Indian'. Those five words caused a big debate in the community and on our website.

Farm kids on the job

Kids working on the family farm were investigated by the province. The story became a hot-button topic of discussion around the province. The minister of labour said the sisters working on their parent's chicken plant was 'common sense'.
