TILMA: Saskatchewan Party Leader Brad Wall's credibility and trustworthiness questioned

Flip-flop on TILMA speaks to Wall's trustworthiness

In responding to the letter, Shifting stand on TILMA suggests a hidden agenda (SP Aug. 15), Kim Lonsdale said it's the kind of NDP fear-mongering we can expect as we head into an election. However, Lonsdale offered no evidence that the comments in the letter are inaccurate.

It's indisputable that Saskatchewan Party Leader Brad Wall last year repeatedly endorsed TILMA in its present form and criticized Premier Lorne Calvert for not signing it. Wall's incredible June 28 flip-flop on the issue speaks to his credibility and trustworthiness.

If he's capable of doing something like this once, he's capable of doing it again. To pull such a deceptive trick just before an election and expect the public to be dumb enough to buy it also calls into question his lack of respect for Saskatchewan people.

Couple this with the unconvincing and half-hearted attempts to hold fellow conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper accountable for breaking his government's equalization promise to Saskatchewan and it becomes clear that Wall's loyalties lie elsewhere.

It seems that all Wall really cares about at this point is getting into power and is willing to do or say anything to become premier. The people of Saskatchewan deserve better and should not be fooled.
