Raise a Flag

The Government of Saskatchewan's Raise a Flag site is live, seeking an ongoing energy accord for the province.

I'd still prefer to see genuine equalization reform that would eliminate the current problems in all provinces. But there's no reason for Ottawa to refuse to talk to Calvert, or worse yet to claim that an earlier deal to eliminate past wrongs entitles it to ignore future ones. And it's all the more egregious that the federal government won't address Saskatchewan's legitimate concerns, but will hand Quebec $500 million for no particular reason.

So with that in mind, give the site a look, and drop Goodale and Martin a note to point out that some provinces shouldn't be more equalized than others.
