Stuck in Saskatoon Commentary

I did some research on Saskatoon last night, and went back over the piece written by Lindsay Coleman recently for Vice.

She describes a very terrible place - she deals with prostitution, drug addiciton, child abuse, gang violence, and pubic stubble in under two thousand words.

I must admit my impressions of Saskatoon have not been so extreme thus far.

Yet I am staying a mere six blocks from the intersection Lindsay Coleman writes about.

Here is the picture from her facebook profile.

She says that Saskatoon is 15 years behind everywhere else. Saskatoon is a small northern city. I think it's culture is somewhat indifferent, and somewhat independent. I don't want to bother getting farther into this. The story reeks.
