Marlin. Take that, JFK!

Diefenbaker Centre and Gravesite

John G. Diefenbaker was the only Saskatchewanian Prime Minister. More importantly, this is the only Prime-Minister-themed museum/archives in Canada: you can even walk through the only known replica of the Prime Minister's office. Be sure to learn all about "Dief the Chief"'s harmonious working relationship with President Eisenhower (what with Saskatchewan and Kansas being so similar) and his bitter fishing rivalry with JFK -- hence the prominently displayed blue marlin on the wall.
