As off as they are, they aren't bad numbers. We are higher than Calgary (1.5%), Edmonton (1.5%), Vancouver (1.4%) and Victoria (1.2%). Despite a much higher unemployment rate (7.4% vs 5.1%), Saskatoon (2.2%) is still growing faster than Regina for some reason. Despite the hardships in the economy and government finances, we seem to be fairing better than other provinces.
