Sask Premier Brad Wall Launches Attack Against NDP Leadership Campaign
An upcoming series of NDP leadership debates around the province coupled with MSM interest in the campaign seems to have the Saskatchewan Party nervous and feeling left out of the public eye.
As a result Sask Premier Brad Wall has launched an unprecedented attack against candidates for the Saskatchewan NDP leadership.
On an almost daily basis, Mr. Wall, his MLA's and Party attempt to bully their way into the internal New Democratic leadership debate. These attacks are clearly preemptive in nature and are largely targeted at economist, Erin Weir and his natural resource policies and vision for the province.
The Saskatchewan Party has a political Achilles Heel .... they are essentially giving the province's natural resource wealth away for far less than a fair return.
Bravado and eloquent speeches from the provincial government camouflage this reality somewhat in the public's mind. The publicity that the NDP leadership debate is receiving threatens to bring unwanted attention to Wall's extremely generous royalty and taxation arrangements for the corporate boardrooms of the oil and potash industries.
