You've brought up nothing new.

How about these facts:


Saskatchewan is roughly 3 times the size of California, yet California as a state has more people than all of Canada combined.

Canada has over 25 diamond mines. We also supply the world with 90% of the world's potash supply.

Canada has the world's second largest fresh water lake.

Regina, Saskatchewan has the highest person to restaurant ratio in the world.

It also battles every year with the higest murder ratio in the country, about 6 a year. That's right, 6. You do the math.

Eastend, Saskatchewan houses the world's most complete Tyrannosauras Rex skeleton.



If I think of anything else, I'll post it.

Uh, no. I didn't.

I did know, however, that many golfers have superstitions about the numbers on there balls.

I, on the otherhand, just write "35" on them every morning after my shower. :D

Some more interesting facts for you wrestling but clenching guru's.

Stone Cold has the most Royal Rumble wins with three.

Big Show is the only Superstar to be the last man eliminated on two occasions.

The luckiest number to draw is No. 27 as that Superstar has won four times.

Drawing No. 30 is seen as a huge advantage, but the Superstar to draw No.

30 has never won the Royal Rumble.

It is seen as a huge disadvantage to draw No. 1, but the Superstar to draw

No. 1 has won twice.

Tito Santana and Bret "Hit Man" Hart were the first-ever Royal Rumble participants.

"The Natural" Butch Reed was the first-ever WWE Superstar eliminated.
Jake "The Snake" Roberts recorded the first elimination in Royal Rumble history.

Sorry dude but Winnipeg is the murder capital of Canada for a reason. Not that it's a source of pride I'm just correcting your statement. :D

To my knowledge, doesn't Winnipeg have the most murders as a city in Canada, while there are a couple cities (Regina included) that battle it out for the "per capita" championship?

It seems to be a point of discussion here every spring as the numbers roll in. I mean, you very well could be right with Winnipeg as it is a shit-hole city (I lived there for almost two years, I have every right to say that ;) ). Regina isn't anything to shake a stick at either, but at least we can paint our houses another colour besides brown and grey.

Either way, being the murder capital of a country holds no bragging rights. Unless you're doing some of the killing, and in that case, please don't kill me. :faintthud

OTTAWA (CP) - The national homicide rate dropped to its lowest level in more than 30 years last year, says Statistics Canada.

The rate, which has generally been declining since the mid-1970s, fell by seven per cent, to 1.73 victims per 100,000 population, the agency said Wednesday.

Canada's rate was about one-third the 5.69 per 100,000 people in the United States. It was also lower than England and Wales at 1.93, but slightly higher than France at 1.65 and Australia at 1.63.

Police reported 548 homicides in 2003, 34 fewer than in 2002.

Fifty fewer females were killed compared with 2002.

"At the same time, there were 16 more male victims," the agency said. "Men accounted for 72 per cent of all victims in 2003."

Homicide is classified in the Criminal Code of Canada as first-degree murder, second-degree murder, manslaughter or infanticide. "Deaths caused by criminal negligence, suicide, and accidental or justifiable homicide are not included."

The national decline was driven by 33 fewer homicides in British Columbia, 18 fewer in Quebec and seven fewer in Alberta.

"Both Quebec and Nova Scotia reported their lowest homicide rates since the 1960s," Statistics Canada said.

In contrast, Saskatchewan had 14 more homicides and Manitoba seven.

"Police reported that one in every seven homicides in 2003 involved organized crime or street gangs. There were 84 victims of gang-related homicide, . . . 45 per cent of which occurred in Ontario."

The agency also found that:

-Homicides committed by strangers reached a 25-year low.

-Most homicides were committed by someone the victim knew.

-The spousal homicide rate declined by eight per cent, with six fewer spouses killed.

-Sixty-four men killed their wives; 14 women killed their husbands.

-Homicides committed by boyfriends, girlfriends and current or estranged partners dropped to 11 from 17 in 2002.

-Fifty-seven youths aged 12 to 17 years were accused of homicide in 2003, 15 more than in 2002 and eight more than the previous 10-year average.

-Thirty-three homicides were committed against children under the age of 12 in 2003, the lowest number in more than 25 years. Fourteen were under one year of age.

"Of the 27 solved homicides against children, 23 were killed by a parent: nine by a father, four by a step-father, 10 by a mother and one by a step-mother. In addition, two children were killed by their day-care provider and two by a stranger."

Toronto had 62 homicides in 2004, 4 less than the year before. So percentage wise The Big Smoke is likely behind some of the smaller cities in Canada.
