Tim's Tip of the Day

So often CBC and CTV television journalist and the national CBC reporters and commentators have a serious disconnect from reality. When it comes to Saskatchewan and especially Saskatchewan politics they seemed to have memories capable of remembering ten minutes ago and nothing more. David Orchard is a Diefenbakerite and that populist movement won the conservative a huge electorial victory yet yesterday the press are referring to Orchard as a Maverick, aleft winger and all manner of things, You would think they could check to see who voted in 1958, it wasn't Dalton Camp conservatives.
