The founding member of the Saskatchewan Party (he was a Liberal back in the day) says he’s romped his last rodeo (I’m paraphrasing). CBC has the story.
Saskatchewan’s Progressive Conservative Party is now in control of a $3-million fund after prevailing in a long-running court dispute involving the Saskatchewan Party. The money has been kept in a trust fund since 1997 when the Saskatchewan PCs decided to go into hiatus.
Interesting, though I’d think any electoral impact would be the long-term. The Sask. Party is very, very strong right now, and I doubt there are any ridings where the Tories could siphon off enough votes to let the NDP sneak ahead. Without looking it up, I’d guess most Progressive Conservative support would be rural, and the Sask. Party is a juggernaut in rural Saskatchewan.
