While reading Murray Mandryk's little piece on Brad Wall the other day, I realized that the writer's goal was to ensure that I got all misty eyed over the fact that Premier Brad Wall is a really swell guy. #FAIL!
I've met Mr. Wall and I've spoken to Mr. Wall. He seems like a nice enough fellow at a personal level. I am positive that if he were my next door neighbor, I could leave the keys to my house with him while I did a weekend away from home. That doesn't change the fact that I will still never vote for him because his politics are wrong.
But back to how the Regina Leader-Post has adopted an editorial policy that will not allow anything negative to be said about Mr. Wall and his Saskatchewan Party.
As we go into this election, the Sask Party has the advantage of using their role as 'government' to draw upon some of the resources of the public service. Case in point - When the New Democrats unveiled their plan for a number of rural primary healthcare clinics, the Sask Party had the option of asking Saskatchewan Health to quickly bring forward a rough estimate on the cost of the proposal. However, the Sask Party central campaign dreamed up a figure that (as it turns out) was 1000 times the real amount.
So how does the Regina Leader-Post deal with this blatant political idiocy by the Saskatchewan Party? Well .... they blame the NDP for not helping the Sask Party do their job. Yup! The Leader Post helped the Sask Party back up to their feet, dusted them off, took out a hanky and helped them blow their nose.
Nice work Regina LP! I cancelled my subscription years ago. Others should as well.
