Braver Options for Brad Wall

Jack Mintz, U of Toronto prof says Brad Wall Needs a Braver Policy. Mintz' deas include slashing corporate and income taxes further, prviatizing crowns, replacing a retail tax with a value added tax, and reforming labour laws, especially "onerous costs imposed on employers in hiring workers and the strike power of monopoly government agencies and corporations." The government should especially avoid picking business winners and losers.

Anyone looking for reasons why Wall should change the labour climate in Saskatchewan needn't look any farther than the gong show case between the Saskatchewan Federation of Labour and the Giant Tiger Store in Regina. A labour relations board decision that should have taken ten days took three and a half years and no one intervened.
