On the 16th of September 2021, I officially moved and changed my life completely.
I wrote a blog all about last year as it was a Year in Review <—- Check that out there.
I was born and raised in Ontario, Canada all my life, from the ages of 0-21… my entire life. Then we changed entirely. Seeing how it’s been a year, I thought I would list some of the differences between this place and the next.
Here is the list of differences:
*Please note this list applies to my area and other parts of SK could be different
- There is only 1 radio station (unless you want AM) *this applies to my area*
- People Wave to you… always
- You will always be driving (want to go to the big city 2h away, a farm that you thought was close… sucker that’s 2hrs out too…)
- They don’t have milk bags… only milk jugs.
- We don’t do time changes. It’s Central Standard Time all year long.
- The Rural Catholic Churches have only 1 Priest circulating between three parishes… (I feel for them)
- There isn’t a Tim Hortons in every town.
- One Library Card counts for every library in the entire province.
- The roads are mainly dirt except for the major highways.
- Saskatchewan isn’t entirely flat, and no I can’t see my dog run off for years to come. Some really beautiful parts of SK include Qu’Appelle Valley and Melfort. Lots of trees and some hills, and the valley has a beautiful river/water.
- I don’t have an address, and the Postal System doesn’t home deliver. Also, FedEx and UPS and Perloator, don’t deliver to Canada Post… which all I have is a PO Box in a Postal office… so much fun.
- You can buy alcohol in the Co-op Grocery Stores. <— have not seen that before.
- The driver’s License system is different than Ontario…
