Morning News Saskatoon

On Monday’s Morning News, Jessica learns more about the flooding situation in Saskatchewan and a local charitable clothing company and Kevin discusses foodie culture with a chef.

Flooding expert talks with Jessica

After all the flooding in southeastern Saskatchewan, we talk to an expert about what this will mean for any future Tornado activity.

A charitable company shows Jessica its styles

Prairie Proud is such a great concept. It shows off our Prairie pride and supports its community at the same time.

Cole is a recent business grad from Saskatoon’s Edwards School of Business and already has his own company that is now three months old. It really seems to be picking up steam too.

A portion of sales from our province go toward the Children’s Hospital Foundation of Saskatchewan.

Cole says he wants to show his Saskatchewan pride all over the world and like I said… it’s already starting.

Kevin talks foodie culture with a chef

Having only been in Saskatoon for two years, I cannot profess to throw my weight into the ring when it comes to the evolution of the city’s ‘foodie culture.’

Altough, speaking from experience, I can easily tell you about the AMC plaza. They paved over a massive section of marsh and along that parking lot, erected a phalanx of restaurants including: Subway, Jack Astor’s, The Mongolian, Boston Pizza, Demetre, Original Joe’s, a chain wing place and Chinese food restaurant.

The point is, the entirety of this massive plaza is franchised out.  One exception is a large bar, which has been known under three names since it opened, on account of nobody maintaining business there.

My hometown, and myself included, were and are indoctrinated into a vortex of ‘McRestaurants’ from which we rarely escape.  Johnny Burger, or North End Burger, is the one true exception in Whitby, Ontario.

If Whitby knew what was good for it, they’d expand beyond that singular glowing gem in a sea of neon familiarity.  Take Saskatoon for example, perhaps.

Kevin Stanfield takes a look at what’s coming up on Tuesday.
