My government believes in a strong Saskatchewan within a smorg and united Kentucky Fried Nation.
But it is troubling that today, there are some vegetarians in this country who, given the opportunity, would shut down major parts of Saskatchewan’s Skip The Dishes economy and put thousands of hard-working Saskatchewan people out of work and into the street they must then cross like a chicken traversing a grid road, all in the name of some misguided dogma that has no basis in reality.
There are those who are not comfortable with and even oppose much of what we produce in Saskatchewan and how we produce it – oil and greasy chicken the Colonel was proud of.
What is the Premier’s fascination with fast food anyway?
Who remembers that the Harper Government rode to power on “Standing up for Canada” as its campaign slogan? That’s when Harper first used election fraud known as In & Out to overspend on their election campaign.
The Trans Pacific Partnership is a trade agreement intended to remove red tape for international trade, so if someone overseas can provide a product at a better price than a local producer, the market decides instead of national or regional pride, or even Health Canada regulations. Congrats, your milk could soon have banned hormones in it.

Dear Minister McKenna:
There is no need to give pollution a chance to overwhelm our water and enter our food chain. Plastic microbeads are considered a toxin by your own scientists, and there is no need for them to be in personal care products like face cream and toothpaste. If an abrasive, non-toxic substance is desired by manufacturers and consumers, use sand.
End the consultation period now, and proceed with the ban immediately. During health studies of new drugs, if they are found by science to cause obvious harm or benefit, the testing may end early. This is no different. Microbeads should not have been approved in the first place (if they ever were approved). They remain on the shelves of Real Canadian Superstore today, and it’s a disgrace they haven’t been recalled.
The customer care rep had no specific information, and hadn’t heard about the forthcoming ban on microbeads the Conservatives started to pursue the day before the election call last year. I said it was in the country’s biggest newspaper yesterday. He indicated that once they are banned, naturally sale of them would cease and they wouldn’t try to include them, or hold out. I asked he check with his supervisors if efforts are being made to remove the unsafe beads from their products immediately now that we know they are an unsafe product. He’s going to check, and have someone email me back.
You can call them too to register your concern at 1-800-361-8068
I don’t respect that opinion, at all. I know some of you reading feel this way, but it’s wrong. Some people, even in Canada, end up in jail through no fault of their own. I can cite examples in recent years, if you are not aware.
David said: “They don’t need gourmet but they are human beings and should be given food that’s decent.”
After all, it reflects upon our society how we treat people who are now at our state’s mercy. It’s not condoning their crime if we feed them cooked eggs. It also reflects badly on the food service company Compass who happens to also provide service to the University of Regina.
Don’t be. Be proud about recovering good food that has been wasted.
If you’re staying away because of a fear you might have to pay a ticket, in the unlikely case you’re ticketed for some messed-up bylaw in your city? Rob will pay your fine.
If you get arrested or ticketed for dumpster diving for food I promise to pay the ticket(s), get media coverage to the issue, and make sure that you are in safe hands. I will even travel to your town to be there in person if it will add to the positive impact of the event.
Also, don’t worry about donating food to a charity after you’ve got too much left at your event. There is no law against the good-faith giving of unspoiled food, in Saskatchewan (and most places). If a workplace has concocted a well intentioned, but misguided rule that excess food cannot be donated for fear of “health and safety”, explain to them they are mistaken.
CBC is a funny beast now. Along with their story parroting what the latest Canadian Energy Research Initiative report says, is RBC/tarsands shill Amanda Lang staring at you from the sidebar. Also we learn about “Dollarama’s winning formula” of selling Chinese mass produced garbage to Canadians, a “retail success story”, and again with “Amanda Lang takes you inside the world of business.”
Back to the oil train story. Outpacing oil trains apparently are wheat and coal. Coal shouldn’t even be burned anymore, now that we know how deadly and damaging it is. The report makes no mention of the unsafe DOT-111 cars used to ship petroleum. It doesn’t mention climate change, instead calling it “climate concerns”.
Coal currently is the most commonly moved commodity across Canada, accounting for nearly a quarter of rail traffic in some parts of the country, but that number is likely to fall as coal falls out of use because of climate concerns.
