Other user descriptions
Saskatoon is a city located in the central part of the province of Saskatchewan, Canada, in the South Saskatchewan River. Saskatoon is the largest city in the province of Saskatchewan, and has been since the mid-1980s surpassed the provincial capital of Regina. The adjective for the people of Saskatoon is Saskatonians. Is the principal city of the metropolitan area of Saskatoon. Known as "Hub City" as the "City of Bridges" for its seven bridges crossing the river, the city's name comes from the language word "Believe" from the west, corresponding to misāskwatōmin Juneberry or saskatoon berry fruit ( a fruit of a type of rose). For too long the alias of Saskatoon was the "Hub City", although the name is normally abbreviated as "S'toon". After the premiere of the film Who Framed Roger Rabbit? in 1988, the city became known popularly as "'Toontown" (City of cartoons), according to a location named in this way in the film, although the nickname "' Toontown" was already used before in Saskatoon the premiere of the movie. The first permanent settlement of Saskatoon occurred in 1883 when Toronto Methodists, wanting to escape the liquor trade in that city, decided to establish a community "dry" in the Prairie region is growing rapidly. His organization, the Colonization Society for Temperance, initially examined this area in 1882 and felt it would be an excellent location to found their community based on the Temperance League. The settlers, led by John Lake, arrived at the place now occupied by Saskatoon traveling by train from Ontario to Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, and completing the journey by horse-drawn carts (the railway had not yet been extended to Saskatoon). The plan for the Temperance Colony soon failed by not getting the group to acquire a large portion of land within the community. However, John Lake is usually considered the founder of Saskatoon, a public school, a park and he named two streets (Lake Crescent that opened in the 60's and Eastlake Avenue, originally called Lake Avenue in the first Saskatoon plane in 1883 but later changed their name for unknown reasons).
