It’s not everyday that you open your mail to find a hand written letter from the Premier of Saskatchewan. Especially, when considering the sum of your encounters amount to a couple of quick handshakes and trivial conversation.

If you are having trouble reading the letter, it is says:

Congratulations on the establishment of Black Dog Republic. Your efforts and success at Elk Ridge will no doubt stand you in good stead for this real estate venture. Thank you for helping build the new Saskatchewan. 


First of all, how does this man know that Black Dog Republic even exists, let alone any of our past success? I’m starting to suspect our leader is from another planet. It could also be possible that he watched our tribute video to Saskatchewan that went viral recently. It generated over 140,000 views in one week. If you still haven’t seen it, you can check it out here:

Either way, I’m impressed beyond measure. As my man John Maxwell says, “Everything rises and falls on leadership.” Thank you for your servant leadership, Mr. Wall. The prosperity of this province speaks for itself. You’re a shining example of what makes SK so awesome.
