Viva Saskatchewan libre

Terence Corcoran of the National Post compares Brad Wall's Saskatchewan to a banana republic:
Did we miss the constitutional change — the one that created the Peoples’ Republic of Saskatchewan, with Brad Wall as el presidente?


The President of Saskatchewan also played the Venezuelan nationalist card: “It’s our government’s belief that the people of Saskatchewan deserve nothing less than a potash industry inequivocally managed, operated and marketed for the benefit of Canada and Saskatchewan.” Or is that a line Danny Williams used in his economic war with AbitibiBowater, the one that ended up costing the federal government millions of dollars in trade fines?
Expect demagoguery in the Saskatchewan Legislative Assembly; vitriolic letters to editors, domestic and Canadian; talk-radio switchboards lighting up like a Christmas tree; questioning of whether Saskatchewan is even part of Canada, or whether Saskatchewan should have ever joined in the first place.
