Six In The Morning

1 CABINET SHUFFLE Any minute now, Premier Brad Wall will be announcing what the “new” Saskatchewan cabinet will look like. Best of luck to everyone in their fantasy Sask Party leagues.

2 FEDERAL DEFICIT According to Tony Clement, the feds posted a $9 billion deficit in March. He’s not terribly happy about it.

3 WE ROCK AT HAVING A LOT OF PREVENTABLE DEATHS In fact, Saskatchewan rocks better in that ignoble distinction than anyone else in Canada. The Leader-Post writes, “the preventable death rate in Saskatchewan in 2008 was 148.3 per 100,000 compared to 119 per 100,000 Canadians.”

4 NOT LONGER DAILY You may have heard yesterday that New Orleans’ Times-Picayune is cutting back to three print editions a week. POLITICO has some Washington reactions.

5 IRAN’S URANIUM GETS RICHER AND RICHER So says United Nations nuclear inspectors. The New York Times talks about how folks are trying to figure out what the increase means.

6 NO MORE RACIST BALLERS The Professional Footballers’ Union is proposing that racist abuse become a “sackable offence”, as the Guardian puts it. I’ve always preferred the word “sack” over “fire”.

  1. 1. Norris out, haha. Wyant in at Justice, that guy’s creepy.

    2. Conservatoves are great money managers. Not. Never have been, never will be. Have never had the brains.

  2. Sackable sounds like you’re getting punched/kicked/football thrown at your sack.

  3. Geno is now ” The Whip ” , lookout if you don’t conform.

    3. A motorcycler / author. a good choice.

    Why is it called “motor”cycle, when a motor refers to an electrically drivin device, and an ” Engine “, needs some sort of fuel source ?

  4. I don’t know, but I for long tyme predicted Wyant as downfall of SaskParty regime. I’m not sure his methods conventional by typical Sask standards, still harbours grudge and carried flame for old boss Serge LeClerc.
