Harper Finds Patronage Spot At The Public Trough For Former Saskatchewan Party Leader
Mr. Hermanson served as leader of the Saskatchewan Party from 1998 to 2004. Prior to his term with the Saskatchewan Party, he served as a Saskatchewan Reform Member of Parliament with Stephen Harper.
Hermanson is appointed to a five-year term, and, according to the cabinet order, his salary will be between $204,300 and $240,400.
The Saskatchewan Party is made up of the remnants of the old Progressive Conservative Party of Saskatchewan and some breakaway right wing Liberals. The Sask Party goes to great length to deny any connection to Harper Conservatives. Appointments to the gravy train such as this make it difficult for them to deny any connections.
