Saskatchewan Opposition Caught Taking Tobacco Company Donations

The Official Opposition, 'Saskatchewan Party' tried to ignite a debate over tobacco on Thursday in the Saskatchewan Legislature, but the NDP fired back with a 'smoking' gun of its own.

The exchange began in the Legislature when the Government introduced legislation that would allow the Government to sue big tobacco companies to recover health care costs to the province.

However, it was revealed that the Official Opposition party accepts political donations from the tobacco industry. While being scrummed in the Rotunda of the Legislature after Question Period, Opposition Leader Brad Wall was confronted with evidence that his party receives large donations from a cigarette manufacturer.

Brad Wall, the embarassed Opposition Leader, changed the policy of his party on the spot.

The Saskatchewan Party continues to break the 'Golden Rule' of Politics - "accusing your opponents of doing things that you do!"

In Saskatchewan there is NO provincial wing of the Conservative Party after 16 Conservative Members of the Legislature were convicted of fraud and breach of trust in the early 1990's. The old Conservative Party joined with a few renegade Liberals and changed its name to The Saskatchewan Party.

Ah...no Conservative Party. Did you say Saskatchewan...or Shangrila?

I said, "In Saskatchewan there is NO provincial wing of the Conservative Party"
(provincial - provincial - provincial)
We have a 'provincial' wing of the conservative party in Saskatchewan? You certainly aren't talking about the old PC Party are you??? It's in a self induced 'legal' coma sitting in some sort of right wing 'limbo' isn't it???
