Regina Leader-Post OpEd Advises Premier Wall To STOP Being $tephen Harper's Lapdog

Progressive Bloggers

"For too long now, Wall has allowed Prime Minister Stephen Harper and the local Conservative MPs to take this province for granted -- largely because what Saskatchewan has requested from Ottawa has always been considerably less pressing than the disaster relief that is needed.

This is something neither Wall nor the province can continue to tolerate. If it wasn't worth going to battle with Ottawa over unfair equalization, infrastructure spending or support for the province's future economic initiatives, surely now is the time for Wall to call in his markers with Harper on flood assistance. Wall must demonstrate leadership by standing up to Harper and refusing to take no as an answer."

Regina Leader-Post

The photo shows three people:
Diefenbaker a Red Tory.
Wall a Conservative.
Harper a populist Reformer.

A case of contrasts, then.


I've seen much about the bad situation in Saskatchewan but I've not seen very much--if anything--about relief coming from Ottawa.
We should be seeing Saskatchewan MPs and cabinet ministers on the nightly news, but they're not there.

The crop relief situation isn't being resolved either.
Have you noticed how more power is being centralised to Ottawa and Harper and in the process making the PMO into a mini-Kremlin?

Harper's impoverishing the country so that the next government will have to take drastic steps to bring the country back to its feet.
That will mean spending and taxes--the very ones Harper & Co. slashsed. The remedial actions fulfill the Tory claim about tax-and-spend Liberals.

But why would anyone want to impoverish a great nation for mere political points? Where's the wisdom in that?

The "smartest man in the room" isn't. Toto doesn't need to pull back the curtain. It's always been there for all of us to see; the attentive ones of us at least.
