Sunday Matinee: Saskatchewan Film

It was fun while it lasted.

  1. Sadly, it seems someone forgot to kiss a little Sask Party keister over the course of the first term. Now, some of the cockiest little turds I know worked in the local film industry, but that’s absolutely no reason to want to see it go. However, given its roots, you probably shouldn’t have expected that same type of well-rounded, Renaissance-style thinking from the Sask Party.

    Someone missed their chance to butter up ole Brad Wall… How hard would it have been to have promised the role of the approachable yet authoritative Twittering principal in High School Musical 4, had it ever come to Saskatchewan? Chevy, man, the leading role in the Burt Lancaster story, and/or Brando/future premier in Saskocalypse Now. Krawetz? Total 1960s Mississippi Delta Sheriff and/or judge, who keeps the peace ‘tween black and white while making sure them factory workers don’t get too union for their own good. Blown opportunities!

  2. I had a look into my crystal ball and it says the Sask. Party will bring back the tax credit with a different name. You heard it here first!

  3. #2: There has been speculation in some circles over the weekend that this might be the case. The only debate is on what day it will be announced, but it’ll be sometime this week, and good money says it’ll be as a budget amendment just before it’s passed.
