->'''Other useful info:''' Actually one of the more successful provinces coming out of the recession, in part due to uranium mines and recently re-opened rare earth mines (metals used in high tech devices). Doesn't follow Daylight Savings Time. In the summer Saskatchewan is with Alberta on Mountain Time, and in the winter they join Manitoba on Central Time. The area immediately surrounding the Saskatchewan side of the biprovincial city of Lloydminster is an exception to this rule—that area uses Mountain Time with DST, keeping its clocks synchronized with Alberta year-round.
