Mossbank

Mossbank is a town in the province of Saskatchewan, Canada. It is located south of Old Wives Lake and 70 km south of Moose JawMossbank was incorporated in 1912 as an extension of the railroad from Expanse. The townsite was chosen by the CN railine with an adjacent townsite of Raycraft being established to the north by the CP railine.Mossbank has a number of historical claims. First the townsite was the first spot where the North-West Mounted Police first encountered indians during the March West campaign. The town was also home to a RCAF gunnery and training school which trained commonwealth forces during the second world war. During the incorporation of Medicare in Saskatchewan the townsite was chosen to host a debate between Tommy Douglas and Ross Thatcher. Tommy Douglas wanted to bring health care reform to the province where Ross Thatcher wanted a private system. Mossbank was chosen because it was considered a politically neutral spot.In recent years the towns population has slowly decreased with the decline modernization of farming practices but has recently experienced a boom with the new wealth being experienced in Saskatchewan.327 (-0.9% from 2006)1.75 km² (0.68 sq mi)186.8 /km² (484 /sq mi)51.5 (M: 48.0, F: 54.6)330 (-12.9% from 2001)1.75 km² (0.68 sq mi)188.5 /km² (488 /sq mi)51.2 (M: 49.5, F: 52.5) $32,471
