Saskatoon, with a population just over 300,000 is the largest city of Saskatchewan, it is also my favorite city in the Prairie. It doesn't have as many and glistering office towers as in Regina but its a prettier city with the beautiful South Saskatchewan River running through its clean city center.

Brentwood is still behind Metrotown in term of the number of towers and height but it would change in a few years time when the Brentwood Center and the near by projects are completed. I personally prefer to live in Brentwood than Metrotown because while both are closed to the Skytrain stations, Brentwood has the advantage of the freeway is right at its door step.
