saskatoon: Walking around downtown Saskatoon, various landmarks stand out such as the Mahatma Ghandi statue, according to CTV. Some might wonder why it's here. And now the city wants people to know the history behind those statues. But there is a reason behind it according to Kevin Kitchen, community development manager with the City of Saskatoon. The bust was commissioned at the request of the Saskatoon India-Canada Cultural Association and was installed at the corner of 21st Street and Third Avenue in 2000. The Ghandi statue was the result of the work of the Indian community and with funding and support from the government of India to erect a statue of Ghandi in recognition of the role that he played in peace.
