Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop, Moe Problem

What the dickens is wrong with Saskatchewan’s prominent political Moe family? It was less than 3 months ago that his truck was impounded in British Columbia where his son drove it so badly. Decades before then, Scott Moe killed Joanne Balog with his truck by not stopping it at a stop sign. Moe says he regrets one day, that day. I guess he doesn’t regret the other 2 days he was driving drunk, even though he might consider them among his “lot of mistakes”.

“Moe calls situation around impounded truck a ‘personal matter'”

“Premier Scott Moe said this was a time he was called to support family and friends”

How does he support his family:

He pardons them from minor traffic violations that mimic his own violation that cost a life.

Plague Update: No Moe Bragging Rights

Apparently the only reason no one in Saskatchewan died of COVID-19 the last couple weeks, was computer error, not reality. Of course Premier Moe was bragging only yesterday about his great numbers compared to Quebec with their public health measures he removed or refused to use here.

Plague Update: Moevid

Plague Premier Moe has COVID-19. He spent the last few days improperly using a substandard mask in public crowds, wiping his bare nose, and coughing.

This is fine…

The rise and rise of petrofascism

Saskatchewan is more than a Petrostate, it’s governed by Petrofascists.

Surviving C21

By Julian Cribb*

A new world superpower is arising. One that is unelected, borderless, controls most governments and, increasingly, employs the familiar tools of repression and deception to attain its goals.

In Australia, the US and Britain, young people calling for urgent climate action are being arrested and gaoled. Harsh new laws are being passed to prohibit free expression of opinion about climate and fossil fuels on the internet.

At COP26, the largest single delegation was from the fossil fuels sector with 508 representatives, compared to 165 from the USA, 312 from Russia, 279 from Canada, 134 from India and 60 from China. Petrodelegates outnumbered the largest country delegation, Brazil with 479, rubbing home the message that fossil fuels are not just a ‘country’ – they are a superpower. 1.

The political muscle of the petro sector (coal-oil-gas-petrochemicals) is flexed publicly almost every day. Politicians from a dozen countries and…

Sidewalk Tax? You Must Jest?

Yes, the www.sidewalktax.ca is a jest, it’s poking fun at the Saskatchewan Governmenet in a way that might pique your interest if you’re just an average driver going about your day. They’re running radio ads, and there’s less than a week remaining in the campaign where they’ll refund the EV tax for Saskatchewan drivers who’ve registered an EV. It’s a bit of a fund raiser for the Sask Environmental Society, and Lung Association of Sask also.

And is the EV tax fair? No, it’s completely unfair. It’s a stab at EV owners who are doing more about the climate crisis than the entire Government of Saskatchewan, which is owned in part by the fossil fuel industry. The math shows the government is collecting a lot more in payments from EV owners than ICE car drivers. Even so, it’s still a better idea to get an EV than a gas-burning car or truck, and saves you money in the long run.

Plague Update: Saskatchewan Abandoned by Sask Party

It’s almost like we have a caretaker government who doesn’t care to take care of us.

Plague Update: Was Hoping Not To Do More Of These

Moe’s ending of restrictions and having the Roughriders hold super-spreader events has put the province into a pickle.

School hasn’t even re-opened yet, and the numbers are already approaching the terrible ones after school open last year, and Delta variant is more contagious. Parents who care about their kids are angry and terrified by the SaskParty government.

Sask Party Breaks Federal Election Law

The despicable election attack ads the SaskParty Saskatchewan Government ran to help the federal Conservative Party circumvent federal election spending limits, were not legal. Further, the SaskParty is partly funded by oil and gas companies, money that cannot legally be accepted by the Conservative Party as it would be considered a form of criminal corruption. In their effort to exploit a loophole to send that money to other SaskParty donors like Rawlco Radio, to buy attack ads, the SaskParty screwed up and broke the law. Their response was to say it was really hard to figure out the 3rd party election ad spending rules.

Why Is The SaskParty Lying About Well Cleanups?

Here’s the scale of the problem:

So, why is the Saskatchewan Party lying about where the bulk of the cleanup money is coming from?

Why are they lying about the cost? Oh, right, the corporate donations that would be illegal in other parts of Canada.

I guess Moe is going to be cutting @JustinTrudeau‘s government a big fat refund cheque with their claim here contradicting how much they wanted for well cleanup.

Plague Update: Saskatchewan Needs New Leadership

An offensively dangerous COVID Denier was touring Canada spreading misinformation and hate. The Sask Government and cops welcomed him with words but no real warning.

And in related news, the Health Minister is whining about how people don’t like how he let over 450 people die on his watch:

Meanwhile, Nova Scotia has an outbreak, so go on a 2 week lockdown. Saskatchewan has incompetent school boards deciding to send kids back with record COVID-19 variant numbers in our cities and towns. As schools closed, infection rates among kids went down. Hmm.
