Ghandi? WTF?

In case you are like me you can’t help but wonder why the hell there’s a Ghandi statue downtown. And it’s a great big one too. Scares little children and old ladies. What does Ghandi have to do with Saskatoon? Maybe he came here once just to see how much better life is in India under colonial rule than here. He probably went back home and said, “Boy, am I glad I don’t live in that shithole province Saskatchewan! Let’s all go sit down and talk about how shitty it is there.” Then again, I bet that some idiot in City Hall bought it thinking it was a statue of Junior from the Sopranos. Too bad it’s not. It’d make more sense to me. It would symbolize that you’d have to be old and insane to want to live here.

It's Gandhi, not Ghandi. It is puzzling why there is a statue of him in Saskatoon, unless he visited Saskatoon during his lifetime. If he did visit Saskatoon at some point in his life, I'm not aware of it.
