No energy accord for Sask, just a check...and a warning

Fresh home from his fruitless trip to Ottawa, SK Premier Calvert held a news conference to announce he had obtained a check for $300 million.

As for what budget envelope this item falls under, it's not exactly clear. At first blush one would have to conclude that this falls under the $4.6 billion concession Jack Layton and the NDP brokered in exchange for their support for the budget.

The scary part is that it appears our politicians are just making it up as they go along.

The worst part is, our money is being used to buy our votes. Attached to the Saskatchewan announcement came a warning from Ralph Goodale that if the budget is not passed, the deal may fall through.

Queue ominous music....
