Why Is The Premier Of Saskatchewan Concerning Himself With Fixing A $70 Speeding Ticket?

The new Saskatchewan Party government does very little to dispel the myth that the province is a backwater where 'hicks' and their issues rule the day. Case in point was the new (and clearly wet behind the ears) Premier of Saskatchewan convening a news conference to announce that his government is going to use the full weight of government to fix speeding tickets for volunteer firefighters in rural areas so that they can speed to the fire faster!

Just for the record, I personally believe that rural volunteer firefighters should be able to get to fires as soon as is safely possible. But you would think that issues such as this are best left to the Association of Rural Municipalities AND the Minister responsible for the Highway Traffic Board; NOT THE OFFICE OF THE PREMIER OF SASKATCHEWAN!

Well, it plays in the media like a "good, common sense" policy, and this works on people who don't think deep... good retail politics for that crowd. I am sure Newstalk 980 for example is playing this up like the its FDR's New Deal.

Is the premier imitating Harper and Mike Harris and Kremlinising everything?

It's the new way conservatives like to run things; just look at Gary Goodyear at the ethic committee hearings and see how he does the same thing.

It's interesting to see that the gang that can't shoot straight is dictating terms in the same way that drunks try to prop each other up on the way home from a long night.

I guess he thinks his 'just plain ole Brad down at the hardware store' schtick will keep his rural voter base with him.
