Saskatchewan Premier Wall Is 'Harper's Puppet': MLA

"So far, there's no question he's just being Stephen Harper's puppet. He has no interest in doing a proper assessment of how the different environmental plans are going to affect the province."
Sandra Morin, MLA
New Democrat Environment Critic

It should come as no surprise to anyone in Saskatchewan, that Premier Wall has been dispatched to sing Stephen Harper's praises during the current federal campaign. After announcing that he would remain neutral during the election, Wall immediately began to tow the Conservative line.

The Regina Leader-Post verifies New Democrat MLA, Sandra Morin's contention ... "At issue are comments last week by Wall where he strongly advised reporters to read a report by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development that said carbon taxes used in Europe had no impact on reducing greenhouse gas emissions and that Canada's potential introduction of carbon tax could spark a "global trade war."
But in fact, the report Wall cited was not done by the OECD --"

That's called reading the fine print or I didn't think folks would go so far as to "source" the document I was purposely misrepresenting. Gees, I was hoping they too would just mix them up. Right.
