Someone Forgot To Tell The Saskatchewan Party Government That The U.S. Republicans Aren't In Power Any More!

Former Republican Ambassador to Canada, David Wilkins and his law firm have been retained by the Brad Wall government to represent Saskatchewan in the United States.

"The law firm whose partners include David Wilkins, the former U.S. ambassador to Canada, has been engaged by Saskatchewan to represent the province in Washington, D.C. The firm Nelson Mullins will be paid $400,000 per year to provide what the province described as "legal analysis and strategic advice on issues that could have an impact on the province's interests," according a provincial government news release issued on Wednesday."

This move has left many people scratching their heads wondering why a former Republican Speaker of the South Carolina Legislature and the hand picked appointee of George W. Bush, was selected to represent and advise a Canadian prairie province in Washington, D.C. It is almost as if the Saskatchewan Party administration does not know that the Democrats are currently in power.

What influence Mr. Wilkins will have with the Obama folks is not clear.

"These goddamned rightwingers got their heads so far up their asses they just can't help themselves."
(Said my friend Jack at the local Robbins Donut shop on hearing of this story).

Perhaps a significant determining factor in the selection was that South Carolina is arguably the most anti-union state in the entire U.S.A.

The former Republican Speaker of a state with that distinction would be an ideological soul mate to those in charge of things over at the Marble Palace.

As a further point, The U.S. law firm hired by Brad Wall advertises the fact that it advises companies on "union avoidance".

Thanks for the links Larry!

Having an ass like Wilkins represent SK, is a very bad idea.
