I grew up in Saskatchewan, I’ve lived here my whole life and to this day had no intentions of ever leaving.  I’ve seen most of the landscape and lifestyle that North America has to offer and to this day was perfectly content in Saskatchewan.  I stress to this day.  Then I awoke this morning – a morning in the middle of May – to snow on the ground, a blizzard in the air, a daytime high of 2C, and power outages.  This is indefensible.  There is no reason any sane human being should be chosing to deal with this nonsense.  We’re only a couple weeks away from the official start of summer and we’re getting snow and freezing temperatures.

I’m all for being ecologically friendly, but if David Suzuki were from Saskatchewan and not out east he’d be doing his best to create all the greenhouse gas he could here.

All this being said, it’s obvious I’m not moving anywhere anytime soon, but today for the first time I’m wishing I were somewhere else.  If my friend Brad Wall, the premier of this province, wants to keep young people here and grow the province tax credits aren’t going to cut it anymore.  He has to do something about this weather.
