You just might be from...

In Canada, if you brag to people in other parts of the country that you still do not pay any sort of provincial sales tax, then you just might be from Alberta.

And, if you tell your friends and relatives elsewhere that you realize there is a lot of rainfall where you live but you then say "at least we don't have to shovel it," you could be from the west coast of British Columbia.

But, if you have ever worn out a snow shovel, then you might be from Saskatchewan.

In fact, that's the title of a book by Carson Demmans and Jason Sylvestre that has lately been making Canadians from coast to coast have a good laugh. Or two or three.

The book, called "You might be from Saskatchewan IF...", came out in 2012. Both Demmans and Sylvestre are permanent Saskatchewan residents. Demmans provided the jokes for the book while Sylvestre contributed the illustrations.

If you have ever navigated using grain elevators as landmarks or if your family's winter home is an ice fishing shack or if a crowd gathers when your local library gets in a new book, then you might be from Saskatchewan.

Published by the Nova Scotia firm of Macintyre Purcell, the book is priced at $12.95 in both Canada and the USA.

In closing, if your friend's sister's friend's cousin saw the Turtle Lake Monster, then you know for certain you are from Saskatchewan.
