Al Gore's coming to town

And I have a sneaking suspicion he's going to tell us how to spend our tax dollars.

Strange that the crowns are bank rolling it -- not sure how a Gore speech helps Sasktel deliver internet in rural areas. Notably absent from the government press release is SaskPower -- the third largest CO2 emmitter in Canada.

UPDATE: Al Gore's personal appearance fee of $125,000 will be paid by SaskTel.

And how's this for a little big brother?

SaskEnergy is sponsoring 250 tickets enabling Saskatchewan high school and university students to attend as part of their ongoing commitment to supporting environmental education. Teachers interested in sending a team from their school can find registration information online at SaskEnergy’s web site at All participating student teams will receive a complimentary DVD copy of “An Inconvenient Truth” so they can organize an educational event in their school or community.

Students will be equipped with materials to evangelize other students. Bring on the truth squads! Very creepy, and highly innapropriate use of public money.

Give the whole story here - 5000 tickets in the Agridome X $40 per ticket = $200,000 --- SaskTel gets their #125,000 back.

You just don't like Gore's message and that is why you are complaining.

They could revive Milton Friedman and bring him to Regina and it still wouldn't change our position.

Al Gore won an Oscar for his movie, so did Borat. Kids at school should be required to see the BBC Documentary "The Great Global Warming Swindle" as it contains some real science and not Social Science. It also won't scare the hell out of them.
