Bad faith and paper legislation
to cover the assets of SaskWater

to save money at any cost

Our leadership has lost track of what healthier communities are and it is continuing in its
economic policy directions to save money at any cost, and subsequently centralize bigger
bureaucracies in urban centres and kill rural Saskatchewan in this process(1). Our government
uses phony statistics to show the economic progress of the province(2), uses technical experts
to support its agenda on municipal amalgamation(3), and uses ivory-tower controllers to save
money in health care(4).

failures in creating wealth

We must all understand that the obsession for this government for saving money is only a mask
to camouflage its failures in creating wealth and sustain healthier communities. Also, we must all
understand that we create wealth and sustain healthier communities when we are allowed to
express our voices and our feelings in our work, in our communities and in our business
relationships. Therefore, we must understand that the pursuing of individual rights to remedy a
wrong is a fundamental exercise of democracy.

legal options

Our government is phony(5), and as a consequence, under the banner of "saving money" it is now
enacting paper legislation which will prevent future lawsuits against Crown-owned SaskWater.
SaskWater was involved in the bankruptcy of the Lake Diefenbaker Potato Corp. (LDPC) and
Mark Langefeld, former CEO of LDPC, has recently stated that the Saskatchewan government
was told last Fall that LDPC's owners would look at their legal options to recover damages from

"good faith" by SaskWater, past and future

Allan McIntyre, a Regina lawyer, has commented that it appears the law applies to everything
done in "good faith" by SaskWater, past and future. Richard Truscott, of the Canadian Taxpayers
Federation, has said that SaskWater is "covering what's left of their exposed behinds... If the
government hadn't gotten involved in this crazy misadventure in the first place, they wouldn't be
scurrying to cover their butts now." So, this is one way the government creates wealth in
Saskatchewan, sitting in its assets(7) and protecting these assets by paper legislation on behalf
of all the people who sit on their assets and against the individual rights of all the people.
  Where is your good faith for enacting any legislation Premier Romanow?
  Quote by Donella Meadows "challenging a paradigm is not a part-time job. It is not sufficient to make your point once and then blame the world for not getting it. The world has a vested interest in, a commitment to, not getting it. The point has to be made patiently and repeatedly, day after day after day"
