->'''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). Because it straddles two time-zones, Saskatchewan doesn't follow Daylight Saving Time, thus matching Alberta on Mountain Time in the summer and Manitoba on Central Time in the winter.[[note]]Astute readers will note that this puts the province on DST year-round.[[/note]] 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.

Also, depending on who you talk to, calling a New Brunswicker (of the Miramichi/Cassilis/Sunny Corner Areas) a Hillbilly or a Redneck will either earn you a slap/insult back or a high five and a "We sure damn are! The very best!" For French speakers, insist they speak English all the time or call them liars if they claim to be from New Brunswick instead of Quebec.

There still exists lobbying efforts The effort to bring the CFL to Nova Scotia.Scotia was revived in the 2010s, and as of early 2020 the only thing keeping the Schooners from joining the league is apparently the lack of a definite stadium plan in Halifax.

The CFL ended the Moncton experiment after 2013 due to declining attendance. Moncton offered to play host to the Hamilton Tiger-Cats during stadium repairs in 2013, but the [=Ti-Cats=] chose instead to play eight of their nine home games in the much closer city of Guelph, with the other home game in Moncton. This kept New Brunswick from becoming the first Atlantic province to get a CFL team. Sort of (they almost brought the CFL once to Halifax in the 1980s).
