Poor Ottawa. Can only get 7% in their home province.

I always hated it when eastern Canadians dismissed western Canada as somehow lesser because of a less dense population and that comment felt similar.
Riders fans wreck Saskatchewan for everyone.

I still remember that infamous Flames game at the Dome where the Flames were recognizing a moment of silence for our military and the Riders score came up on the OOT scoreboard in the Dome and Riders/Flames fans started cheering.

Not sure the survey is terribly insightful. It largely reflects population by region, with some allowances for relocations. The gender results are not likely statistically significant.

Having moved from Saskatoon to Calgary, I can say with great.... surety, that this is a perfect comparison.

I grew up in Saskatoon between 1984 and 2000. There were very few flames fans around. Mainly because the oilers just had a better team. The 80's dynasty oilers were way more fun to watch compared to flames. Theo and Lanny were clowns compared to Gretzky and Messier. I remember we took a survey for favourite Canadian team when I was in 6th or 7th grade and out of 25 kids, 15 were oilers fans, 5 were habs fans, 3 were leafs fans and 2 were flames fans. We always laughed at kids who were flames fans.

Plus as a city, Edmonton had the hockey team and West Ed which, as a kid, made a weekend trip there much more fun than going to Calgary.
It wasn't until I had moved to Calgary in 2000 and lived here for a couple years before I finally got into the Flames.

And yes, Saskatoon is definitely the Calgary of SK if you are comparing Saskatoon and Regina.
