To me, this is more important than a growth rate because we won't ever get as high as say Saskatoon or Regina anytime soon....but even if Saskatoon continues its growth rate and Winnipeg completely stopped growing, it would take ~60 years for Saskatoon to catch up in population.
Fear the Saskaboom. With all the new oil and potash deposits they found out here I'll say Saskatoon catches Winnipeg in 20 years
