Southern Saskatchewan tour

Swift Current is the pass-through town of the sea of grass called the prairies. Far enough from Winnipeg and Calgary, it’s a destination only as a stopping point. No one wants to visit the town, they only want the Tim’s, the Co-op gas, the casino or the motels. They want somewhere to slow down on the hurtle across the Trans Canada.

Swift Current is like Calais in France. The end of the line for trains from Paris and the port aimed at by ferries from the UK. No one wants to visit Calais – it’s a pass-through.
