Brad Wall's 'Unfettered Free Market' Nonsense Could Cost Saskatchewan Billions - Says Conference Board Of Canada

When Brad Wall worked for the Grant Devine Conservative government, he joined the ranks of those who advocated for and applauded the sale of the province's potash crown corporation. But now as Potash Corp is about to be taken over by BHP, the province stands to lose billions of dollars.

Right wing Premier Brad Wall will now kick and scream at the prospect of Saskatchewan losing control of the potash industry and the money that goes with it. Yet it is his failed free-market ideology that has placed the province in this bad position. But don't hold your breath waiting for Mr. Wall to temper his hard Right wing beliefs and admit that the privatization of the potash corporation was a bad move.

Wall will continue to give lip service to the ideology of 'unfettered free-markets' while he demands that his Federal Conservative brethern 'fetter' BHP's takeover of the Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan.

The people of Saskatchewan have already lost billions due to the Devine/Wall privatization policies .. they are about to lose billions more if you believe the Conference Board of Canada.

I don't know whether to gloat that we were right all along in opposing privatization, or cry because the epic fail of Devine/Wall's policies could cost us control of a vital global resource. That potash belongs to everyone in Saskatchewan, to all of us rich and poor. The legacy of these arrogant decisions could affect us for generations, and just as the NDP got us back on our feet after Devine bankrupted us in the 1980's. Now it looks like Wall is following precisely in his footsteps. It's beyond depressing, but I continue to fight for what is right for this province and for all Canadians. I continue to support our New Democratic Party.

Mustapha - I'm opting for Crying.
