Och aye, here come the Scots! In Canada, I hear you say? Yes, surprisingly the first settlers to Indian Head in 1882 were of Scottish origin and arrived mostly by ox cart, bit of a hike from Scotland I think you'd agree.
Since the arrival of the Scots, it has grown in size and reputation, for example in 1902 not only was it upgraded to a town, but it was noted in the Canadian Journal as being the largest point of initial wheat shipment in the entire world! Believe it or not, Indian Head's fame did not stop there.. it was on TV… a lot! Which television sitcom was filmed there in the years 2007-12? Was it;
A. Little Mosque on the Prairie
B. Corner Gas
C. The Big Bang Theory?
And again the sitcom was, a) little mosque on the prairie, b) corner gas or c) big bang theory?
Answer - The answer is ... A!
The Little Mosque on the Prairie sitcom was filmed in Toronto, Ontario and Indian Head and focused on a Muslim community in the fictional prairie town of Mercy, Saskatchewan.
