Latest #skvotes Poll: SPOILER ALERT

Finally. I was going into poll withdrawal. Yesterday Insights West released their poll gauging public sentiment in Saskatchewan on the campaign, and the parties. Needless to say, it wasn’t exactly riveting new information. SPOILER ALERT: the Sask Party is going to win. Nevertheless, there were a few tidbits worth mentioning. So, I will.

During last night’s televised circus leadership debate, Cam Broten and Brad Wall got into a slapfight argument over what exactly is going on with the Prairie Spirit School Division. “You’re misinformed,” insisted Wall. “Oh AS IF,” was Broten’s reply. Yeah that’s pretty much the entire hour in a nutshell. Wall did elaborate somewhat, indicating the PSSD’s funding […]
