New column day

Here, pointing out that the Global Transportation Hub land flipping scandal highlights Brad Wall's consistent willingness to hand out free money to business cronies - contrasted against his fight to avoid funding basic services like health and education.

For further reading...
- CBC has led the way in reporting on the Global Transportation Hub dealings. And Murray Mandryk writes about the provincial auditor's impending investigation.
- By way of comparison to the Saskatchewan Party's eagerness to hand tens of millions of dollars to land speculators, the Star-Phoenix reported on its refusal to do anything to account for the needs of school boards based on increased enrolment, while CKRM notes the same when it comes to an influx of refugees. And CBC reports on David McGrane's study showing that education has been underfunded by billions under the Sask Party.
- On the health front, CJME reported on cuts to surgical services in Regina, while the Canadian Press discussed layoffs in Saskatoon. And CBC noted the gross waste arising from the Sask Party's "lean" cult.
- Finally, in what may be the most appalling stories of cuts yet, CBC reports on the effect of radical cuts to Saskatoon's Lighthouse homeless shelter, while Betty Ann Adam notes that North Battleford's Lighthouse may be in danger of closing altogether.
