Citizens of Saskatchewan have a last chance to vote for the fossil they believe represents Saskatchewan as the next official provincial emblem. The seven provincial fossil candidates have interesting features and were found in communities across the province including Eastend, Herschel, Carrot River-Arborfield, Kyle and Ponteix.
Culture Minister Mark Docherty says whether a vote is cast based on pride of place or the fossil’s unique characteristics citizens of all ages living across the province can voice their choice. The candidates roamed the earth anywhere from tens of thousands to tens of millions year ago.
Voting can be done on line at their website www.royalsaskmusuem.ca with the deadline being Monday.
