Sask Premier Brad Wall Critical Of Harper's Cabinet And Senate Appointments

Saskatchewan's Right wing Premier Brad Wall had some criticism today for Stephen Harper's Cabinet and Senate Appointments:

"Wall was critical of Harper's pick for natural resources, Joe Oliver from a Toronto riding.

"Western Canada counts for 90 per cent of the country's oil, 93 per cent of the country's gas, 100 per cent of the country's uranium, 99 per cent of the country's coal and I think that the west needs that voice in terms of natural resources," he said. [...]

He also commented on news that Harper will appoint three new Senators.

Wall noted that Saskatchewan has legislation in place to allow people to elect a senator. He said appointing senators maintains the status quo, which many people do not like.

"I think it takes away momentum for change at the provincial level," Wall said. "I think it will probably increase calls that we hear from time to time, just saying, 'Do we really need this institution?'"

Wall said he will ask the Prime Minister what the plan is for senate reform."


well Harper is starting to like the "farm for losers" called the Senate. The party doesn't have to keep them on the payroll but Canadians do!

It's called giving the finger to Canadians (including those in the West)

Unfortunately, 56.3% of the voters in Sask. disagree with Wall and appear to like the status quo as they voted for the Harper Conservatives.

Now that Harper has stacked the Senate and has a majority there, he will not relinquish this power willingly.

Harper is not going to listen to Wall.
