I came to Saskatoon 32 years ago. It was a quiet, sleepy place back then. Stores closed on Wednesday afternoon downtown. Everything closed up by 5 or 5:30 the rest of the week. Nothing was open on Sunday. The population was predominantly white European ancestry and many were very negative towards change. They seemed to be stuck in the past.

Today, the city if vibrant, with a very active cultural scene, new people coming in from around the world, new businesses opening up. I think that civic leaders have been fairly forward looking here for a long time and one of the great things about Saskatoon is the park infrastructure along the South Saskatchewan River valley. From the south of the city all the way to the north of the city you can walk, cycle, run or ski depending on the season. Access to the river is something to cherish as I have lived in other communities where the shore along either the river or a lake is all private property.

Do we have problems, yes. Are they as bad as some of the other commentators make it out to be, no. Yes there are people who are having a difficult time in this city, but for the most part people are doing well here and they have opportunities that may not exist elsewhere. For years, back in the 1990's and early this century, the city council dithered about what to do with large tracts of vacant land downtown or old abandoned infrastructure like the old powerhouse, too afraid to make a decision and to move forward. These are the good old days that some of the other commentators refer to when house prices were low and jobs were scarce. Over the last decade we have been fortunate to have a council that has made decisions to invest in this community and to get things moving. Nobody agrees with all of their decisions but many of them have helped to make this a better place to live and work. New developments in the downtown along the river have revitalized what was vacant land and brought people into the downtown at all times of the day and throughout the year. The Farmer's Market, Persephone Theatre, River Landing and the new art gallery are all signs of progress. And yes the 100 year old bridge that has been closed for safety reasons will be replaced in the next few years.

A number of commentators have focused on negatives, which is really easy to do. My question for them is what are they doing to make Saskatoon a better place to live? There are a lot of committed citizens in this community who love living here, who volunteer their time and energy to making it a better place for their neighbors and their children or grandchildren. There is still lots to do to make Saskatoon a city that all of its citizens are proud to live in and where everyone has an opportunity to get ahead. We need more people who not only want to help but who actually get out and do something to help.
