Not theirs.

Check out Part 2 here on the candidate’s positions on the Global Transportation Hub (GTH). Six candidates are vying to fill Wall’s shoes after his January 28, 2018 departure: former Saskatoon city councillor and justice minister Gord Wyant; former Grant Devine staffer and controversially, the current head of Saskatchewan’s civil service, Alanna Koch; rural MLA …

First of all, you guys are AH-MAY-ZING. The response to my lame attempt at fundraising for this blog was outstanding and humbling and I seriously love you all so much. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Given how hard y’all have shown your support, I figured it was time to get my ass in gear …

I know zilch about farming or ranching, so let’s get that out of the way. What I do know is marketing, and admittedly I have eaten fast food once or twice (today). I’m fascinated by Premier Brad Wall’s trolling of A&W over their beef. Fascinated, because I know Wall understands the free-market, and certainly understands the …

As predicted, Premier Brad Wall has stepped down, sparking a Saskatchewan Party leadership race that promises to be as bloody as it is divisive, with candidates getting their buses ready to drive over anyone whose actions (past or present) threaten their chances at the top spot.

In my last post we went over some of the complex but disturbing developments revealed by the CBC’s iTeam regarding the origins of Brightenview, the company with which the Saskatchewan government has jumped into bed as proof their Global Transportation Hub is a viable project.

Even before the Saskatchewan budget came down last week, the cuts were coming down in full force. Take the privatization of government janitorial services, a measure that put over 250 people out of work, while reducing the $1.2 billion deficit by…0.3%.

Recently a SaskParty Cabinet Minister – a really, really lovely person who I truly like – said to me, “You know, you could write something nice once in a while.” I want to. I really do. But after the SaskParty’s absolutely absurd behavior this week – and outright attempts to mislead us, it won’t be happening today. …

Premier Brad Wall is taking a digital beating, especially on social media, for his response, or perceived lack thereof, to The Husky Oil Spill into the North Saskatchewan River. Just search the term ‘husky oil spill’ or good ol’ ‘#skpoli’ on Twitter, and you’ll see an infinite stretch of aggressive, hateful vitriol directed Wall’s way, extending right back to …

So Husky has refused to speak to media and/or provide an actual human being to share any real meaningful information on the Saskatchewan oil spill, but they’re going to show up at a gas station tomorrow to do just that? With the Premier? Okie doke. I guess that’s one way of doing it. I wonder if the Premier …
