Saskatchewan Potash Issue Has Many Pitfalls For Brad Wall

Saskatchewan's Premier Brad Wall is sounding a lot like the 'socialists' that he accuses the New Democratic Party of being. Over the years, Wall has never tired of accusing the Left of interference in the 'Free Market' and has done everything he can to curtail organized labour. Speech after speech in the provincial legislature has seen him venomously attack anyone who attempts to 'fetter' the ability of free enterprise to gouge every last penny of profit from consumers.

However, when it comes to the Potash industry in Saskatchewan, Premier Wall has now decided to define himslf as 'Comrade Wall' and has thrown all of his 'unfettered free market' rhetoric out the window. Why? I'll tell you why .. his political ass is on the line as this province watches the possibility of Billions of dollars of tax and royalty money escaping from the treasury.

The potential loss of these Billions of dollars to the treasury can be connected directly to the privatization of the potash industry that Wall applauded and participated in during the Grant Devine era.

The chickens have come home to roost. Wall's Right wing ideology has failed him and is about to fail the people of Saskatchewan. Wall knows it. Portraying himself as 'Comrade Wall' the great fetterer of free enterprise is a desperate strategy to keep the wrath of the public from his front door.

In the meanwhile, those on the Right who normally would support Mr. Wall are now wondering why
he is betraying the gospel of 'Free Enterprise'!

One explanation for Wall is that, in this issue, national interest overwhelms any left/right discussion.

Despite being at opposite ends of left and right, neither China nor Japan sees any more need to justify protectionism than the other.
