Unrooming The Delta Bessborough

Unrooming The Delta Bessborough September 13, 2016 · 2 min. readWhile the thoughts and opinions are my own, this article was brought to you by a third party. Also, this article may contain affiliate links.

The Delta Bessborough Hotel is Saskatoon's most picturesque landmark. It was constructed during the Great Depression and was one of the many projects that helped save Saskatoon's struggling downtown area. The hotel is a premium destination for work functions, receptions, weddings or just weekend trips to the Paris of the Prairies. Supposedly haunted – although the receptionist claims the only spirits in the hotel are the ones served at the bar – they also have ghost tours in October in anticipation for Halloween.

It would come to no surprise then that when Hotels.com approached me to "unroom" a suite of any hotel of my choosing, I immediately chose the Bessborough. For those who don't know, "unrooming" is similar to "unboxing", which is when a person records their first impressions and reactions when opening something for the first time, may it be a new iPhone or a television. Instead of unboxing a product however, this time I was unrooming a room.

Top 10 ½ Tallest Statues in Saskatchewan

This list is incorrect. Please go read my updated version.

Saskatchewan is known for its quirky statues but lately one of them has made international news.

If you haven't heard, Justin Reeves and Greg Moore of Justin and Greg reported that the people of Oslo, Norway have created a moose statue slightly taller than Saskatchewan's Mac the Moose. Moose Jaw's mayor said that if you mess with a moose, you'll "get the antlers", while the deputy mayor of Stor-Elvdal, Norway said they will do "whatever it takes" to keep their title. To reclaim their title, Moose Jaw is considering everything from putting stilettos on Mac's feet, to giving him a hat, to making his antlers slightly larger. Whatever it takes to outdo Norway's chrome monstrosity, Moose Jaw is willing to do it.

Is it Safe to Visit Ukraine?

Several months ago I visited Ukraine for the 30th anniversary of the Chernobyl disaster. I spent a few days in Kyiv and learned about Ukrainian culture, their heritage, their history and their place in the world. It also happened to be Orthodox Easter Sunday when I was there, so I took part in some of the festivities.

While in Kyiv I also saw plenty of soldiers, many coming and going from the subway station, while others were patrolling the streets.  There was also plenty of anti-Russian propaganda. Although there is no war in Kyiv, there is in Donbass, in Eastern Ukraine. Since 2014 pro-Russian forces have been shelling Donbass. Death tolls on both sides of the conflict are approaching 10,000, with over 22,000 people wounded and almost two million displaced.

This conflict is often skimmed over by the media but many sections of Donbass have limited water, food and electricity. Buildings are shelled out and abandoned apartment complexes are used as military bunkers. There are also reports of prisoner of war camps where prisoners are being tortured by the rebels.
