New column day

Here, on the costliest promise in Saskatchewan's provincial election.

For further reading, see Erin's platform comparison and comment on potash royalties.

Update: Leftdog highlights just how little PCS needs handouts from the province.

And I'll add the usual proviso left out of the column: yes, of course the potash corporations will whine about any royalty review, since they prefer receiving hundreds of millions of free dollars to not receiving them. But it's the job of the provincial government to have the province's best interests in mind - and the Sask Party has done nothing at all to suggest they've even considered whether a different balance of royalties might lead to better outcomes for Saskatchewan's citizens.
