an actual advertising campaign the 2007 Sask NDP thought you’d totally love and relate to.

You know how they say the definition of doing something over and over and over again, without achieving the desired result, is insanity? Saskatchewan NDP, you need therapy. “…what sell-off plan is Mr. Wall hiding?” Broten asked reporters yesterday, presumably not rhetorically, and in hopes someone would give him the answer. Anyone. Do you remember when […]

I wonder what Allan Kerpan thinks?

He’s of the first Sask Party MLAs elected in Saskatchewan, and currently chairing a Sask Party campaign in Saskatoon. Definitely not a fan of drunk driving. In 2014 Kerpan’s 25-year-old daughter, Danille, had her life snuffed out in an instant, when her vehicle was hit head-on by a drunk driver on Highway 11. In January of 2016, after the […]

Quennell says it’s all about “voter suppression”.

Huh. The now former Saskatchewan NDP central campaign manager, Frank Quennell, says the outing of candidates who “crossed the line” (-Broten, March 12) on social media – specifically the candidate who made the horrific crack about the “abortion pill” was “voter suppression”. I don’t disagree with Quennell’s premise that this is political –  hello, we’re in the middle […]


From the Saskatchewan NDP Campaign ’16 braintrust today: “Funding reserve education is a federal responsibility. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has pledged to take action on the issue, but nothing has been done yet…Broten said it’s an urgent issue of fairness and justice…As premier, he’d fund the schools “immediately” and then bill the federal government.” “…then […]

On balance, I’d say drunk driving twice, ever, is as bad as (worse than?) anything anyone could ever put on social media.

After a week of NDP candidates being thrown directly under the campaign bus for things they’ve said in the past, we now have a situation with a Sask Party candidate, and some things he’s done in the past. “Sunday, the Saskatoon StarPhoenix confirmed Canora-Pelly Saskatchewan Party candidate Terry Dennis has twice been found guilty of […]

March 13: #skvotes ridings to watch

Pollmaster (is that a word? It is now) Eric Grenier’s amazing site,, will be projecting the 2016 Saskatchewan election results throughout the writ period. Eric’s projections were stunningly close for the 2015 federal election, and overall have been extremely accurate since he started doing this five years ago. You can find his latest provincial […]

Speaking of delusional..

Mulcair’s moment: When defeated NDP leader decided to stay and fight “Tom Mulcair was leaving the national capital, his devastating federal election defeat still stinging, when he realized he wanted to stay on as leader of the NDP.” How do you not, at that same moment, think to yourself ‘But then again, maybe my political intuition […]
