(The province of Saskatchewan shares the same founding date as Alberta, 1905.) Saskatchewan had to please two competing cities when deciding the location of its capital city and provincial university. Thus, Regina (Regina, Saskatchewan) was designated the provincial capital and Saskatoon received the provincial university, the University of Saskatchewan. The same heated wrangling over the location of the provincial capital also took place in Alberta between the cities of Calgary and Edmonton. It was stated that the capital would be north of the North Saskatchewan River and that the university would be in a city south of it. In the end the city of Edmonton became capital and the then-separate city of Strathcona (Strathcona, Alberta) on the south bank of the river, where Premier Alexander Rutherford lived, was granted the university, much to the chagrin of Calgary, for many years to come. - Atlanta Flames 1972 1980 style "background:#ff9;" Calgary Flames* 8 commons:Calgary
