Saskatchewan is in the closing days of a provincial election. The campaign has been low-key, and the pundits have already proclaimed the electoral success of Brad Wall's Saskatchewan Party. The Liberals have imploded and the Greens are frantically playing catch-up with a new leader, Victor Lau. The former NDP powerhouse is widely predicted to be approaching its worst electoral results in decades, and its leader Dwain Lingenfelter has been the object of Harper-style attack ads by the Sask Party brain trust.
Into this context, some genuine policy discussion has been offered, though it has been poorly framed by both politicians and its codependent media.
