Coming Soon To A Theatre Near You?

Earlier this year, if you recall, Saskatchewan citizens celebrated the 100th anniversary of the Legislature’s official opening in 1912. As part of the hoopla, a time capsule that had been placed in the building by workers in 1909 was opened. With 2012 winding down, the Saskatchewan government has put together another time capsule that will be placed in the building with instructions that it not be opened until 2112.

Here’s a link to the CBC report, where you can find a list of all the items that the government elected to include. Among them, a Saskatchewan Roughrider loonie, an iPad users’ manual, an aerial photo of Regina, a photo of premier Brad Wall, a copy of Saskatchewan Business magazine profiling the top 100 Saskatchewan companies in 2012, a provincial map and a Holy Bible.

What the world will look like in 2112, we can only imagine. Will our future be rosy, with a strong economy, healthy society, and vibrant culture; or bleak, with poverty and despair abounding — until one day a mysterious man appears on the scene with kickass martial arts skills, a wicked cache of weapons and a satchel containing a special treasure that he uses to advance the cause of righteousness.

His name? Well, in a 2010 Hollywood movie on a similar apocalytic theme, it was Eli. But since this is Saskatchewan, we could maybe call him… oh, I don’t know. How about Brad? And the story could be called The Book of Brad. To give you an idea of how neat that would be, here’s the trailer for the 2010 flick.

  1. There will likely still be mixed emotions about the City Square Plaza in 2012. And Taylor Field v.3 will be up for renewal.

  2. Book of Brad? It would be handy if there ever was a big NDP uprising again in 100 years to reverse Saskatchewan’s progress back another 100 years.
