New column day

Here, on how we shouldn't believe any of the unenforceable promises Brad Wall and his government will make to try to pitch a SaskTel selloff - and how citizens stand to lose out from a sale.

For further reading...
- CBC reported on Wall's going out of his way to push privatization - including confirmation that his cabinet is set up to try to swing public opinion toward a selloff.
- I've written before about the difference in wireless pricing between provinces with an independent alternative, and those limited to the national Big Three providers.
- Finally, yhe CCPA examined the effects of MTS' initial privatization here (PDF). And CBC and Daniel Tencer have discussed the consumer implications of its impending takeover by Bell, while Michael Geist pointed out that the CRTC wants to see more rather than less options for consumers.
