So Xmas has passed, and a friend of mine gifted me Gormley's book about the NDP and its relentless pursuit of mediocrity in Saskatchewan (the book title - not my words). Suffice to say I'm not in agreement with much in the book, but there was a passage in the back chapter surrounding an 'NDP insider's take on the Calvert government legacy' that made me think.
What will be the Calvert government legacy? Romanow slayed the debt, Blakeney built the crowns, Douglas built Medicare, but for the life of me I can't think of something positive and long lasting that came from the Calvert gov't.
My recollection of his time was mostly defensive, defending Channel Lake, Spudco, Belanger, Carriere. The only thing I recall were things that didn't really pan out, like the low utility bill promise, or the free drugs promise.
Open for debate - what do you think the Calvert gov't legacy will be?
