Elections, Campaigning, and Change

If you’re rebuilding a political party, you have to listen. You have to WANT to listen. And you have to listen to a lot of people. One of the best things that ever happened to me was Preston Manning coming to my high school to talk about his newly formed federal party, the Alliance Party. There was no way in… Read more →

Vote Saskatchewan 2016

I’m sad. I’m sad because usually, an election is an exciting time! Elections are basically the dating game for people who don’t want to have to dick around with online profiles, grocery shop introductions, and nightclub hookups. It’s like trying to find someone to spend the rest of your life with, if the rest of your life can be measured… Read more →

Maybe he had a Condition. Maybe he was just really into his job and didn’t want to muck up his vibe). That’s… Read more →

Transparency?

I don’t think that word means what you think it means.  We just passed the deadline by which First Nations bands are required by the Federal Government to disclosed audited financial statements. The audited financial statements must be accompanied by a separate schedule which details the salaries for Chiefs and councillors. There are some good things in the First Nations… Read more →
