You can take them out of Saskatchewan but you can't take the Saskatchewan out of them

While it is true that I am an ex-pat who still loves to take shots at the province, I am NOT this guy!

It was February of 2003 when Brian Larson left Saskatchewan for greener pastures in Alberta.

His Saskatchewan Health card expired a few months later -- but Larson held onto the number printed on it, and in 2005, 2006 and 2007, it allowed him to keep the same big game hunting privileges as any true resident of his home province.
