Earlier this week an e-mail
authored by Saskatchewan M.L.A. Lyle Hansen was leaked to the web revealing that the Government of Saskatchewan
has given serious thought to renaming the province. The document gave reference to a special committee that has been formed to focus on this task and even contained photo evidence of names currently being considered (which can be seen below
) for the province such as "Sasker" and "Prairieland." This morning Peter Oldring spoke with Mr. Hansen to learn more about this potential name change.
Here's the e-mail that was leaked this week: We want to know what you think: Should Saskatchewan be renamed and if so, what should it be called?
