Saskatchewan Party Government Backs Down On Abandoning Wheatsheaf Logo

After a massive public outcry, the new Brad Wall government has backtracked on their move to abandon the iconic wheatsheaf as a symbol of the Province and government of Saskatchewan.

Government of Saskatchewan News Release
.... CBC has more ...

How to make friends and influence enemies right out of the start gate. Change for change's sake has never made sense, especially if some earlier commentors (who allegedly were in favour of the initial move) saw it only as sweeping away all sign of the NDP mark on the province, rather than as a neutral Saskatchewan emblem as much metaphoric as literal. Tres churlish and yet so predictable once given their talking points.

don't be a whiner Buckdog!

So that makes two backtracks in a less then a week...

LOL ... Thanks Sean ... I hope they backtrack on a lot of their policies .. I plan on 'whining' quite a bit!

It was a mistake to back track on this.

They should have made the changes... Simple as that.

Saskalosers (those who voted Sask Party) should get ready for many disappointments - Wall is a gutless chickenshit .... so brace yourself!


your blog, but still uncalled for...

All I asked For was a little tweaking of the logo.

I was still kind of on the side of keeping it.

I know what we could get rid of.



Maybe change it to this


Smiley face at the end of it Instead.

What do you Think Leftdog ;)

Mike .. what I called Wall is gentle compared to what your side has labelled Calvert.

ha ha ha!

Your sooooooo funny Leftdog.

Yes, Liar Lorne has made a name for himself across this Great Land....he has been the butt of many jokes in the East...

agreed plainjoe.

"Goodnight, John-Boy"


whos John-boy?

I don't see any comments from him

Name calling from either side does nothing for the debate.

Your excuse of "they did it to us first" doesn't hold water.

I don't agree with most of your political views, (nor do I think you agree with most of mine) but I am willing to come here and debate them with you.

But let's not let passionate debate get debased by unfair charaterizations from any side.

Here is an example of the wheatsheaf.
