Yann Martel, author of Life of Pi, and his girlfriend Alice Kuipers (is she the Alice Kuipers who has stuff here and here?) are settling in Saskatoon. The journalist who interviewed the couple refers to the city as “the Paris of the Prairies.”
I’ve never been to Saskatoon (nor have I been to Paris for that matter) but somehow I doubt the two cities are very much alike.
