Since the days of Diefenbaker, the Conservative Party in Saskatchewan has produced a near inexhaustible supply of flat-earthers, mugwumps, fighting clowns and the type who think The Flintstones is a documentary. We should note that Mark Elford, chair of the Saskatchewan Cattlemen’s Association, has apparently begun his campaign to have Stephen Harper appoint him to the Senate by calling two of Canada’s foremost literary icons ‘crackpots.’

Because that tactic works so well for the Ford family in Toronto.

God, I’m so ashamed to be from Saskatchewan
