Maybe ban the chuck wagon race. Not sure who let's one of their horses take part in that. Someone who maybe shouldn't own horses?

Back in the old days shooting a horse would be a door prize.

Shootin' Injuns was a Midway attraction.

Horses love to run and they love to compete. They don't give a shit about the human in the wagon, they just want to win.

Nice racist comments.

Those nasty Injuns and their love of horses has made them the toughest competitors in the Stampede for over a century.

I didn't leave Saskatchewan, my Dad did. It was a good move, too. He got to have a career at a high management level in a big corporation. None of those things happen to you in Saskatchewan.

No, they moved further West and North where there's jobs and money.

Adults and stallions and mature bulls can do whatever they want short of 'the buffalo-jump'. 'Rode hard and put up wet' is a term associated with horses rather than somebody from Fredrick's.

Calf roping was for branding, a one time event. In the spirit of that tradition to be roped more than once means the person is a 'rustler'.
(almost as bad as the group most hated here, next to your's truly that is, and can be shot on sight and on site)

Get your story straight. First it was your grandfather who left. Now your dad and your siblings stayed but left Regina for a better life but have now moved back?

Why so many versions? It's the liquor talking?

The real story is you left in around 1980 when the NDP ground the economy to a halt and kicked off an exodus of the tail end of the the babyboomers.

Huh? Even in the 'beer strike' 'we' drank in a bar right on the AB/SK border and we has all the normal beer. Karma?? They loved the whole drunken paving crew for the 4 months we were there, times were so hard lol.

See how the truth flows out and your drunken lies stumble on and on and become a fukking drone.

So the answer is no. You haven't spent much time with Francophone Quebecers. They take Alberta transfer money at a greater rate than most Canadians do. I'll bet that you hate them for that. They have victimized you ... like Ontarians have.

You're a VICTIM!! ...and you hate them for it!

Does it? I went to Stampede last weekend with a Jamaican. He looked like a black sideshow Bob wearing boots and the trational white Stetson white a red band atop his dreads.

For you it might have looked odd but you're a racist.

We had a blast.

Nope, the barmaid from France pointed which tables of French speaking people were assholes. That was just about every one and they didn't fit in all that well at 'the Indian bar' so they stayed working as much as possible. Are they the only kind there or are the exports let out of prison and deported to Alberta..

It's the Beginning of the End for that particular race not for the celebration itself.

I've had a problem with the chuck-wagon races for years. This bullshit nonsense about "the horses enjoy it" is well, bullshit.
And the most recent incident was considered intentional and the idiot who caused it has been booted from the Stampede and fined $10,000.

It's not like this is a one-off either. Every Stampede horses get killed in the chuck-wagon races. That's just not acceptable. What are we, Romans?
