When Brad Wall Tells You That He Has No Money For Floods, etc - Ask Him Why He Abandoned $800 Million Equalization Dollars From Ottawa

Progressive Bloggers

12 million acres of prime Saskatchewan farmland are under water and no crop will be harvested this fall. Add to that, the massive flood damage in Yorkton, Maple Creek and Saskatoon. Then there is tornado damage and a host of other environmental disasters which currently are hurting Saskatchewan.

Seems that Brad Wall's government is already trying to tell those affected that they don't have enough money to provide adequate assistance.


Is this the same Premier Brad Wall who dropped the court case which would have forced Stephen Harper to adhere to Canada's Equalization formula? You know, the formula that calculated Saskatchewan was entitled to over $800 Million as part of our two way commitment to Confederation. Brad Wall's idiotic Right Wing ideology got the best of his potential for logic and told him that ... 'naw we don't need any equalization dollars! We have faith in the unfettered free market!' What a load of crap.

For those who don't know, 'Equalization money' is part of Canada's commitment to a province's role in Confederation. Tax dollars are sent to Ottawa each year by each province, but a carefully constructed formula allows a portion of a province's tax contributions to be returned to that province in order to deal with situations such as those that Saskatchewan is now facing.

But what did the irresponsible Brad Wall do .. he let his hard Right Wing ideology get in the way of pragmatic logic.

Shame on Brad Wall and the Saskatchewan Party government for poor financial management of this province.

When Brad Wall tells you that he has no money for floods, etc - ask him why he abandoned $800 Million Equalization Dollars from Ottawa!

My advice from BC. Learn Gordon Campbell's playbook. The SP seems to be using it.
