Welcome to SaskSecrets

Welcome to an abbreviated November, 2007 edition of SaskSecrets, Tourism Saskatchewan’s online newsletter. We’re keeping things short and sweet this month as we are busy working on our brand new Tourism Saskatchewan website. We’re very excited about this fantastic new site, and you’ll be able to check it our for yourself in early 2008!

In the meantime, check out SaskSecrets for the interesting story of homesteader and instrument collector Stephen Kolbinson, get an update on the health of Mac the Moose, and enter this month’s contest for a winter getaway package courtesy Land of the Loon Resort and Sundogs Sled Excursions.

Stephen Kolbinson had a dream. As one of Saskatchewan’s original homesteaders, this Icelandic Canadian gentleman farmer established a farm near Kindersley. But his passions extended far beyond the borders of his two-an-a-half section homestead.

World's Largest Moose Under the Weather

Mac the Moose has been standing tall for more than two decades, greeting visitors to Moose Jaw or beckoning passing travelers to stop in for a visit. But the lovable 9,000 kilogram / ten ton Mac is not feeling 100% these days.
