Saskatchewan Party Attempts Mischief 'Motion' In The Legislature ... (they aren't quite as smart as they think they are)!
That the Legislative Assembly of Saskatchewan supports the consideration of further value-added development of Saskatchewan ’s uranium industry including nuclear power generation and recognizes the potential benefits to the growth and prosperity of the people of our province.
By bringing forward this motion, the right wing Saskatchewan Party is trying to see if they can create some division or sparks in the New Democratic leadership race. All four NDP leadership candidates are well aware of what the Sask Party's thinly veiled intent is with the motion.
The New Democratic Party of Saskatchewan has pragmatically dealt with nuclear/uranium issues during the government terms of Premier Allan Blakeney (1971 - 1982), Premier Roy Romanow (1991 - 2000) and Premier Lorne Calvert (2000 - 2007). The party is not about to fall apart over the issue at this time.
Jeremy Harrison is the Sask Party designated 'mischief maker' but he is generally not very articulate on weighty issues.
New Democratic candidates are all anxious and willing to debate the nuclear question or any other issue that the province faces. In fact, the Caucus has some very clear and pointed questions that the Wall crew needs to answer!
-CBC Saskatchewan has more ... and they also have even even more ....
