What platform do you run on when a global depression is at hand? 'We will fend this off as long as we can' or the more sinister, 'We are going the tank it ourselves so the recovery starts sooner'?

Some squeak: 48 to 13 to 0 to 0. Guess SK didn't listen to Justine or the dyke.

Maybe 'We'll do what we've done for the last two terms.' (???)

Sorry, I live in AB I didn't realize Saskabush has been in a depression for that long. Carry on I guess, as there isn't much you can do on a sinking ship anyway.

How long has your Province been on the skids Walnut?

What do you have to learn? 'Send more money', and 'I give up.'

But then I would miss learning more about Saskabush. It's not that often I see you guys following a thread topic, I'll get some popcorn and watch you guys hash it out while staying on topic. I'm rooting that you can, . . . as it shows you are just being trolls when you stray.

Carry on.

Perhaps there isn't enough uncounted votes to make much of a difference.

Of course. Everybody already their minds made up a couple years ago.

Kinda like how everybody knows the Leafs aren't gonna win the cup this year, next year, the year after or even several years in the foreseeable future.

I am not surprised. A) because current government has been doing a good job and B) NDP have had some issues.

Not really necessary. Just a myth pushed by the ruling class to cut the best out of the race.

I don't think Brad Wall will, at least not any time soon, and I'd bet never right now. He is deeply committed to Saskatchewan and as a third term provincial Premiere has more influence on the national stage than a federal Leader of the Opposition has. His values are not conservative, or Conservative, he's a moderate pragmatist and a consumately skillfull politician, one of the best we've ever seen. He IS the Sask Party and, as a local newspaper editorialized, that means the Sask Party has a built-in expiry date. The party was built from the tattered remnants of Grant Devine's disgraced Progressive Conservatives, disgruntled Liberals, and cranky old Reform Party people. He's kept it together brilliantly and suppressed the worst elements at its foundation, but without him or someone equally gifted--and how many people like that are there?-- I think it would soon self-destruct. And he's in for a hard time now that the commodity boom is over and his best heavyweights--mostly former Liberals--are retiring. I'll be interested to see how much bench strength he has,

forced ethnic politicking by the progs:

Ezra Levant; (external - login to view)
Here's a list of some Liberal candidates, every one of whom lost:

Nadeem Islam. Gulraiz Tariq. Ana Ashraf. Shah Rukh. Ezaz Jaseem. Naveed Anwar. And so on.

In the last census, 0.1% of Saskatchewanians are Muslim.
