Moe Defends His Travel By Attacking the wrong NDP

Saskatchewan’s Premier literally thinks that raw resources are more important than our people and their future here in Saskatchewan. Why is his badly typed meme using a federal NDP campaign plane to talk about provincial NDP travel? Could it be that his travel expenses are ridiculous, full of evasive photo ops with terrible people like Doug Ford?

Face Of Evil

And yet we have Agents of Destruction running Ontario and Saskatchewan, leaders who are hell bent on protecting the corporate elite who think it’s fine to build a pipeline for the tarsands. Hell, even our supposedly moderate Prime Minister and Climate Change Ministers both think that building a fucking pipeline in 2018, unusable in only half the time to a 2040 DEADline, isn’t wasting human labour, wasting time, and stranding assets underground.

If you aren’t developing a plan for yourself, and your place of work to be carbon neutral by 2030, you’re not helping enough. You’re failing yourself, and failing your children. Standing up to the useless, evil, cowards running our economies into the ground, would be a good starting point.

Hursh Lights A Match

And the fields are dry.

“As a farmer in southwest Saskatchewan, this isn’t a great year. It’s been dry and hot. Crop yields as well as prices are down. Many of my neighbours have had their crops destroyed by vicious hailstorms.”

Hursh has made it clear. Yes, it’s clear that he’s “a climate change denier, a stooge of big oil and big agriculture”.
“…the weather has not become unsuitable for agriculture.” Until it isn’t, and we’ve hit tipping points that have blasted methane out of the permafrost, and our ice caps can’t reflect enough heat, and our oceans have acidified past livable conditions, and our coastal cities are destroyed by flooding. It’s frustrating that the Leader-Post lets such a poorly considered editorial meet its pages. It doesn’t meet the most basic levels of logical thought.

I used to have respect for Hursh’s long agricultural journalism career, but now he’s spouting nonsense that will finish the industry if too many listen to his trap of apathy and ignorance.

“I could blame it on global warming or climate change, but it’s really no different than many of the years faced by my father or his father before that.”
Except it is different, and he’s not listening to scientists telling him it is.

“If some of the climate change models are correct, and that’s a big if (sic), there will be winners and losers when it comes to agriculture. Many of these models show Canada as a big benefactor.”

What the hell is that? He thinks there are models that don’t show Canada being hurt from Halifax, Victoria, and Vancouver being destroyed by flooding, and crops not made less viable with extreme droughts and rain spells? Remember 20 years ago, when the Deniers were ranting about growing crops further north (where there’s no topsoil to speak of) if Canada warmed up? Some of the more out-of-touch ones still bring up that lark. The Regina daily paper does its readers no favours by printing such equivalent wishful thinking (if you can call parroting Denislist memes “thinking”).

Busless

Saskatchewan used to bustle, but soon it will be busless. It would literally rather provide mobility to tarsands than people.

“The announcement came 14 months after the Saskatchewan government shut down the money-losing Saskatchewan Transportation Co.”

That’s a bad perspective Star Phoenix. There is no expectation to make profit on public services. You wouldn’t say, “Shut down the money-losing Plains Hospital”, for example.

 

“Since Greyhound made their announcement, we simply can’t leave people stranded by the road,” Notley said in Medicine Hat on Wednesday.

“Rural Albertans, and rural Alberta communities, make an enormous contribution to our province and we owe it to them to protect the transportation options that they have.”

Hire Organ Donor Transplant Doctors

Saskatchewan has a big problem in our health care system. The last Premier, Wall, promised to do something about this, but nothing got fixed. Premier Moe may be too busy picking a fight with B.C. to ask his Health Minister(s) to hire a small team of doctors to ensure donor organs are collected and given to people waiting on donor lists so they can be healthy and rejoin the workforce and have full lives again.

“SaskAdvantage” is on the sign driving into the Regina Bypass highway tangle east of the capital city. If you’re sick on an organ donor waiting list in Saskatchewan, you’re at a definite SaskDisadvantage because our Health Minister isn’t getting the job done for you.
