"Saskatchewan Party Lacks Vision For Province" - Saskatoon Star Phoenix Editorial Board
When the editorial board of the province's largest MSM daily paper issues a headline like the one above, you know that the governing party is in big trouble. Brad Wall's Saskatchewan Party is holding their annual provincial convention this weekend, but you have to wonder ... why? The empty tables pretty much tell you how exciting the affair must have been.
"There are a total of five resolutions put forward by local Saskatchewan Party constituency organizations. They range from a suggested amendment to the human rights code to include the protection of property to a simplistic call to prevent a future shortage of Level 3 and Level 4 beds in long-term care facilities.
A resolution out of Regina Lakeview suggests people involved in family law proceedings should be advised of the option of collaborative law and mediation. There is also a far-fetched proposal to dissolve school boards as they currently exist and hand the responsibility of maintaining school services and facilities to municipalities. How this resolution even made it on to the agenda is a mystery."

Update - And just for the record ... what happens in the Saskatchewan Party if you are the guy who screwed up the Budget to the tune of a $1.9 Billion miscalculation of Revenue?
