Edmonton Centre , Korea House , Legislature, McKenzie Art Gallery and Royal Saskatchewan Natural History Museum , Moose Jaw , Regina , Friendly Off the top of my head, I can think of three things I love most about the Friendly City: 1) it has the most beautiful liquor store in North America; 2) the daily newspaper is home to some of the wackiest ...

Moose jaw has the most ignorant people that i met in saskatchewan. they cut you off in traffic and then give you the finger ? They dont get along,wont agree to anything. Look at the multiplex issue. You javians are the laughing stock of Canada. Ignorant bunch of bas...ds

That's okay. Edmonton is a friendly city, unless it's Esks vs. Riders! But that too is all in good fun.
Cheers!

no i have never found moose jaw to be an unfriendly place to live. and yes the schools here are great. and i too have been to edmonton and watched and old man get kicked and beat outside the bus depot there and people just walked right by him. also the multiplex thing well that is another matter, it is time people in moose jaw get together on it. and a laughing stock of canada i don't believe that. and truth defender back your city. so i say peg's right moose jaw is a friendly city and people are great here. and we all here think moose jaw is great for families. and for the person that cut you off and gave you are bird i am sorry but dont judge all of us by that act.

I have talked to other former residence and people who still live there...They for the most part agree with me that it is not a very friendly city at all. People around there just dont get along at all.. Fighing over anything and everything. Knife capital of the province !

Really you just said in the post that we do have unfriendly people here.
C'mon guys lets start telling the truth and not these sugar plum fairy visions of the city.
We have a major split here right now due to the Multi-Plex and despite the building going up it isn't healing and if anything growing larger.
We have a big fight here right now with at least 4 of the largest Multi-Plex supporters signing a petition against a Fitness Centre in the new building.
The council is discusisng the issue and looking for feedback. Does that sound like a city together or a city divided to you?
The necessary fan base and volunteer base needed to fill this facility and run the big events won't be there. I know I use to volunteer now I won't due to the location of the New Rink and the big shock my property taxes are about to take.
To say we get along and agree on everything is an out and out misrepresentation of the facts.
And despite two referendum and lots of fighting we still see opposition to the Multi-Plex not only from ordinary taxpayers like myself but now some in the downtown business community as well.
Friendly to a point but a city divided for sure.

I'm from a small town and grew up on a farm. I moved to Moose Jaw to go to school and my experience there was great. It was fun and you meet lots of nice people. Of course you meet some not so nice people and rude people too, but you can get that any where. I know someone who has lived in Moose Jaw for 6 years and at one point they weren't the biggest fan of the place, but they said the reason for that was because of the people they knew. They switched up their friends once I came there and they say they love it now and like living there. Who your friends are really do make a big difference and they people you meet, thats like any city or town you go to. The subject of the multiplex is dumb to be brought up here. Of course some people are going to be for it and some people aren't, that is like any big thing that occurs in any city. I'm all for the multiplex!

Of course you are all for the Multi-Plex you are not stuck here paying record high city property taxes to pay for it.
Hell I am all for a domed stadium in Regina as well so long as Regina residents have to pay for it.....
