Sask: The helping hand that holds us down

The equalization program by design rewards province's that don't develop strong an diverse economies and punishes those that do but that doesn't stop Saskatchewan Premier Lorne Calvert from screaming for a bigger slice of the pie.

The Government of Saskatchewan is simply seeking the same energy deal with Ottawa that Alberta has. By allowing provinces to keep more of their resource money, a hand is extended to ensure that they suceed.

David MacLean said...

Shaky, Alberta has no such deal. Alberta does not receive equalization, and never has to my knowledge.

Sask is pursuing the same deal as the Atlantic provinces. I'm saying that is a race to the bottom.
