Whip it Good

Saskatoon

How can people think Saskatoon is dull? Obviously they haven’t enjoyed a steak on a pitchfork dinner and whipcracking experience.

Last night I thought I was going out to a normal dinner hosted by Tourism Saskatchewan along with a handful of journalists from China, Korea, Japan, Quebec and Toronto. Turns out the restaurant was a 30-minute drive north in St. Denis, a French-speaking community. (Yes, there are French speakers in Saskatchewan.)  Only it wasn’t a restaurant so much as a saloon – it’s called Champetre County, and not only did we eat steak fondue ie steak dipped into hot oil on a pitchfork, but the 5 time World Champion Whip Cracker, an Australian named Will Gough, showed us some fancy whipping skills even a dominatrix would envy. What an Australian whip cracker is doing in a French-speaking prairie Wild West experience, I’m not sure, but who’s going to argue with a man with a whip?
