Mr. Speaker, we welcome Bill Waiser from Saskatoon—Grasswood to Ottawa to accept his first Governor General’s Literary Award, for A World We Have Lost: Saskatchewan Before 1905.
This book is a great history lesson featuring Canada’s first people and first explorers and the formidable backdrop of Saskatchewan’s climate, landscape, and people. The book is a fascinating look into the formation of our great province and the significance of trading and the relationship with our first people in a pre-Confederation Saskatchewan.
Bill Waiser has published over a dozen works and continues to be one of the top historians in our province, if not our country, but today Bill Waiser will celebrate at the Governor General’s Awards for his work, A World We Have Lost: Saskatchewan Before 1905.
