Time to hit Saskatchewan’s big smoke

I drove north to Saskatchewan’s capital not expecting much after the country I’d passed through but Regina was a beautiful city. It was summer so the lush park that bordered one side of a lake, was an ideal hang out. The city was clean and yes, there were signs, so easy to find my way around.

Regina’s the training ground for the RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police); an elite group of Canadians who wear the famous red uniforms and ride horse back. As well, there’s a museum documenting their history.

The RCMP’s presence in Canada contributed to a significant difference between this country and the U.S.A. because no settlement in Canada opened unless the RCMP were present whereas in the States, the town opened before the law came.
