Huge parking lot on the USask campus. Interesting tribute to a flawed man and Prime Minister. Easy to do picnic along the river on the nearby Meewasin trail system

A short visit gave me a much better idea of who Diefenbaker was and what he contributed to Canada. The displays were well made and hospitality by the two staff onsite was especially warm.
