THE FOURTH MERIDIAN
In 1905, when the provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan were being created out of what was the North West Territories, the fourth meridian was chosen to be the border of the two new provinces. The Fourth Meridian is the longest, straightest surveyed line in North America. Although a surveyed line is invisible, experiencing the Fourth Meridian can best be achieved by taking the Border Marker promenade. By standing at one end of the Border Marker line and looking through the center of the marker, you will be looking down the Fourth Meridian, with one foot in Alberta and the other in Saskatchewan.
The upgrader is another large source of Lloydminsters enployment and income.
