"Buckaroo' Brad Wall Says Saskatchewan Will 'Ride Shotgun' For Alberta
“I think Alberta has had to unfairly go it alone. We ought to be shoulder-to-shoulder. Alberta deserves a little help in this regard, and we’re going to be riding shotgun.”
Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall
(on Alberta’s $25-million dollar public relations campaign)
The Alberta government recently announced it is spending $25-million over three years to promote Alberta and the oilsands as environmentally friendly. In response to the Alberta propaganda campaign, Saskatchewan's premier has left people wondering exactly what 'riding shotgun' means for Saskatchewan taxpayers? Are they going to 'pony-up' dollars to help Stelmach defer the cost of his media campaign, or is Wall going to 'saddle-up' and mount his own advertising in Saskatchewan trying to convince us that tarsands mega-projects are good for the environment?
Saskatchewan's new premier loves to speak in his best 'cow-poke' language from time to time - leaving many of us embarrassed here in the 'wild wild west'!
