A float at the Regina exhibition symbolized the attitude people had about agriculture and the role Saskatchewan would play in the world.


The rapid growth that started during the last half of the 1890s continued into the twentieth century. Prime Minister Laurier’s bold prediction that the ‘twentieth century would be Canada’s century’ appeared to be coming true and Saskatchewan’s agricultural wealth was a central component to this success.

If the decade had to be described in a single word, it would be ‘optimism’. As the railways expanded across the province, homesteaders flooded in and new towns, with grain elevators, schools, and other services, sprang up along the lines. These accomplishments were a source of tremendous pride that was most evident when Saskatchewan became a province in 1905. Four years later the cornerstone was laid to the largest legislative building in the country. It seemed like there was no limit to what the province or the people could achieve.
