Honourable Deb Higgins, Saskatchewan Minister of Labour


Why, Ms. Higgins,
the one step forward five steps back dance?

Brendaren Farms - Thursday, March 3, 2005 - by: Edwin Wallace
Once again the fumbling, bumbling, antics of the Calvert Government continue to embarrass any of us who have supported the NDP of Saskatchewan over the years. My wife remains a lifelong member but I haven't the stomach for the one-step-forward-five-back dance that you people have been doing in a feeble and foolish effort to appease the right wing interests - especially since the last provincial election.

I am constantly puzzled. Who are your political strategists?  For instance, why would very good, old, part-time labour legislation, be brought forward only to be abandoned at the first outcry from the Chamber of Commerce? I have coffee often with people who would do much better at guiding strategic direction. But, of course, most of us would let our political philosophy influence us and remember that a lot of people other than the Chamber of Commerce are the reason for our being.  Not you guys. Hell no! None of that socialism for you arrogant elitists. Bad word!

As I have said before, no doubt all of you in cabinet are painfully aware that another term for the NDP is at best a very remote possibility. The opportunism exhibited by such stars as the ilk of Lingenfelter remain foremost in our minds. Perhaps that is the answer. Many of you are trying to present a reasonable side to the "other side" so that you may if you choose - secure lucrative positions with the PRIVATE sector in your post-political years. 
Well, OK, I guess, perhaps, you have reduced our expectations and trust in our elected government so that the Wall Tories won't be so traumatic for us when that pathetically bad alternative gets elected.
Shame on all of you!

I'm Edwin Wallace
