It is time to wind down the Sask Politics 1 website for the holiday season. We've had a good run since we began in mid-August! Merry Christmas to you, Happy Hanukah, and a Happy 2012 to you as well. We return to regular postings on January 4, 2012.
61 seats in the Saskatchewan Legislature? I'm extremely excited about the growing population of Saskatchewan. It shows our growing economy is gaining traction. But we should be using this newfound wealth and new citizens grow the size of government in Saskatchewan, or should we hold the line on public spending, and not add to the burden of taxpayers? Can't we make do with 58 MLAs and save some money?
And the controversy over rising rents in Saskatchewan continues. I don't see this issue going away anytime soon, and I don't see any quick solutions to this problem either. The only sustainable solutions to soaring rents in Saskatchewan's urban centres is for the construction of more rental units, and a moratorium on further condo conversions. In the meantime, the pain continues.
