There’s no doubt that the most charming streets in Saskatoon are those built around pedestrians, with lots of small, unique, locally-owned shops.

By now you must have noticed that the geeks have inherited the Earth, or at least, they’ve taken over popular entertainment. One only needs to take a look at the television or Hollywood releases to see things from comic books to video games capturing our zeitgeist.
