Goodale: Saskatchewan will not get equalization deal

Moments ago Ralph Goodale was taking calls on Saskatchewan's John Gormley Live talk radio program about the fiasco in the Commons. Intrepid CBC reporter Stefani Langenegger called in and directly asked whether Saskatchewan would get a new equalization deal like the Atlantic provinces.

Goodale responded with a good, old fashioned fillibuster. He rambled on about how "complex" the issue is, and how it was about "building the economy" (funny how it wasn't too complex to sign deals with Atlantic provinces and Ontario).

Langenegger adroitly concluded: "I'll take that as a 'no'"
