I think OP meant that the business connections from Alberta are better than Saskatoon. If you want to have a meeting with someone from America in Saskatoon, the multiple connections it would take would be a big headache. I think that's part of the reason why the new Potashcorp/Atrium merger will be based in Calgary.

Hi. Jumping over here from the Regina thread.

What's the general consensus from Saskatonians on Red Swan Pizza? They've announced they're opening up an franchise location in Regina soon. Any good?

Rents in Calgary are one third of what they were a few years ago.

Yeah thats true Stormer. I did read an article a while back (although I forget where) about how Calgary's huge office vaccancy will take businesses from across Canada and esspecially hurt Saskatchewans cities. Good office space in Saskatoon is at a premium until some of these new towers get built. I think once these A or A+ class building start getting built downtown here that there will be a big shift in pricing in the lower classes as businesses reposition themselves in the core which might help us.
