Saskboy's Abandoned Stuff: Shutting out CTF would help Saskatchewan people tackle moral deficit

The Canadian Taxpayers Federation may not seem to consume many resources, but that’s an illusion. They occupy our newspapers. They occupy our newscasts.

Saskboy's Abandoned Stuff: Wall’s Faulty Logic

“Showing leadership matters, signals matter, examples matter, but the numbers are the numbers,” Wall said. Essentially, Wall appears to be suggesting that because no single action by itself will solve the problem, we shouldn’t take that single action.
