"Corner Gas" was a Canadian sitcom that ran from 2004 to 2009. This hilarious show focused on Brent Leroy, a fellow who runs the local gas station in Dog River, Saskatchewan and his (crazy) parents, friends, co-workers and the local cops. It became a giant hit nation wide and resonated especially well with those who grew up in small towns on the prairies. In fact "Corner Gas: the movie" was filmed this summer and will be released around Christmas time.
"Dog River" is actually Rouleau, Saskatchewan , a small town not that far from Regina which is where I hang out when I'm not on the road. Outdoor filming was done there and the indoor shots mainly shot at a sound stage in Regina.
After the Claybank visit we decided we noticed signs for Rouleau and thought why not? So off we went to Dog River.
So come along and even if you've never heard of "Corner Gas" enjoy some classic prairie scenery. Because nothing beats the prairies on a sunny day when the canola is in flower....
