Welcome to Saskatoon
Saskatoon. It's not a bad place to live. Cost of living is pretty good. It's big enough that there are interesting things to do and small enough that it only takes a maximum of about a half hour to get there. Lions skatepark is one of the better parks in western Canada. Yeah it has ridiculously cold winters, but the generally long and hot summers usually make up for it. The economy here is on a steady boom while the rest of the world is struggling. Oh and the music scene is really starting to take a turn for the better.
So why am I telling you all of this? Because apparently Saskatoon is not only the murder capital of Canada but is also considered the 9th most dangerous city on the planet. Of course these are based on statistics because honestly, are you in more danger living in Saskatoon or Detroit? Don't tell anyone though, a little bit of assumed toughness never hurt anyone.
