Saskatchewan Party pulls in $119,888 from energy industry in 2009; $1.29-million since 1998

Even without the aid of fundraising junkets to Alberta, the Saskatchewan Party’s coffers continue to overflow with oil and gas money.

Financial statements filed with Elections Saskatchewan and posted on its website show the Saskatchewan Party took in at least $119,888 in energy industry donations last year – the fourth highest total ever. That compares to $$142,036 in 2008. Not bad for the mid-way point of the four year election cycle.

The top five contributors to the political party in 2009 were all from Calgary:

▪ Penn West Petroleum Ltd. – $20,352.91
▪ Prairie Birch Royalties Ltd. – $4,522.62
▪ TransAlta Corporation, $3,734.12
▪ Crescent Point Resources Ltd. – $3,652.91
▪ Petrobank Energy and Resources Ltd. – $3,652.91

In sixth place and new to the list is Bruce Power, the Ontario-based nuclear energy company which donated $3,345.16.

Other corporations making their debut as friends of the Saskatchewan Party include the aforementioned Prairie Birch Royalties, JV Driver Projects Inc., NuCoal Energy Corp., Sherritt Coal, and Wave Energy Ltd.

The governing Saskatchewan Party depends heavily on the private sector for the bulk of its donations. In 2009, the party generated $871,294 from 1,118 corporations, of which 695 were in excess of $250.00 for $816,306. Donations from the energy industry represent about 13.75 per cent of the total.

The Saskatchewan Party received $687,265 from 4,938 individuals and zero from trade unions.

Since 1998, the Saskatchewan Party has taken in more than $1.298-million in donations from the energy industry.

In his first year as premier, Brad Wall attended a private reception in Edmonton on May 20, 2008, and a dinner in Calgary on May 21, 2008, where 750 people paid $400-a-plate to hear him speak.

According to the Leader-Post, Wall said at the time it’s only natural for parties to raise funds in places such as Calgary and sees no problem as premier with it continuing.

Calgary is the oil centre for Canada, so if you’re developing oil policy or meeting with oil companies, soliciting support ... that’s where you’re going to go. The same would be true for provincial leaders who go to Toronto and raise money there from the financial community. I mean, that’s where you would go,” he said in a telephone interview from Saskatoon after speaking at a Saskatchewan Party luncheon.

“It has not influenced our party policy in the past. We have a platform, we have commitments to keep in that platform and we’re going to do that, keep those promises notwithstanding what any executive is advising us to do.” [Making fundraising forays into Alta. (Leader-Post, May 21, 2008)]

And yet four months earlier, there was Wall in one of his first trips outside the province as premier hustling his ass over to Alberta to brief the oil barons on the new government’s plans.

Wall and Energy and Resources Minister Bill Boyd visited Calgary on January 21 & 22, 2008, to speak to investment audiences and oil and gas industry leaders about energy and investment opportunities in Saskatchewan.

On the 21st, Wall addressed a sold-out luncheon meeting of the CFA Society of Calgary (Chartered Financial Analysts) at the Calgary Petroleum Club. On the evening of the 22nd, he spoke at a Saskatchewan government hosted reception for oil and gas industry leaders. The premier and Boyd also held individual meetings with various energy companies and industry associations during the two-day trip, said a government news release on January 17, 2008.

The names of the companies and individuals that Wall and Boyd met with were not disclosed.

In his speech to the CFA, Wall promised the business crowd that, “The new government in the province of Saskatchewan will not be increasing royalties in the province of Saskatchewan.”

Wall also promised that Enterprise Saskatchewan, through one of its sector teams, would review both the royalty and the regulatory structures in place, not just for oil and gas, but in regard to potash and other resources, for the purposes of trying to be more competitive.

“We need to move in that other direction and here’s why: we have all this undeveloped potential. We’re behind a little bit, frankly, in developing the hydrocarbon assets of the province of Saskatchewan and some of the other resource opportunities that exist,” Wall said.

According to the StarPhoenix, Wall told reporters after the speech that Saskatchewan had no plans to cut royalty rates as Alberta raises its own.

“In oil and gas, we’re comfortable with the royalty structure the way it is now,” Wall said.

Wall said he aims to provide a regulatory environment that will help build the fledgling unconventional oil and gas sector in Saskatchewan, and that may include government help with research and development or other aspects of development outside the royalty structure.

“Maybe there’s a role on the power side, on the infrastructure side,” said Wall. “We see this as an opportunity and we want to pursue it.”

Wall mentioned his desire to become part of a pact that now includes Alberta and British Columbia aimed at removing interprovincial trade barriers and co-operating on health care and other initiatives. [Wall woos Calgary crowd (StarPhoenix, January 22, 2008)]

The Wall government followed up the two days of meetings in Calgary with a feel good news release on January 23, 2008, recapping the events.

Pierre Alvarez, the then president of the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP) called the meetings with Saskatchewan officials “informative and constructive.”

“We were pleased Premier Wall and Minister Boyd were able to meet with us so early in their new mandate,” Alvarez said in the news release. “It’s clear that the Government of Saskatchewan is interested in the long-term growth and stability of the oil and gas industry in the province.”

Alvarez wasn’t kidding. It had only been 76 days since the November 7, 2007, provincial election. These kinds of trips are not planned overnight and take weeks to organize. Wall admitted as much in his speech to the CFA saying “there are a number of logistical challenges that go into organizing an event like this.”

CAPP is a powerful industry lobby group representing more than 250 producer and associate members. Its member companies produce about 90 per cent of Canada’s natural gas and crude oil. CAPP has donated $16,261.52 to the Saskatchewan Party since 2002.

Some of what Wall talked about in Calgary has come to pass. The Enterprise Saskatchewan Energy Sector Team (stacked with Saskatchewan Party supporters and contributors) developed a number of recommendations for consideration by the Enterprise Saskatchewan board of directors, including harmonizing labour, weights and dimensions, OH&S regulations, and trade certification with the other western provinces. On April 30, 2010, the provinces of Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia signed the controversial New West Partnership without any prior public consultation or legislative debate. The western premiers claim that the pact will eliminate barriers to trade and investment but won’t say what they are.

In March 2009, Wall backtracked on the practice of staging annual fundraising dinners in Alberta confirming with the StarPhoenix that the Saskatchewan Party would not hold one that year.

Wall acknowledged that he now feels there is a difference between holding that event while also holding power.

“It is different. It is. . . . I can’t have a leader’s dinner outside the province anymore, even if we call it that. It’s a premier’s dinner and every province has their own premier,” he told reporter James Wood in a telephone interview from Washington, D.C.

Wall said the Saskatchewan Party would continue to raise funds outside of Saskatchewan and did not rule out holding an out-of-province fundraising dinner again. [Sask. Party axes Alta. Fundraiser (StarPhoenix, March 7, 2009)]

Wall’s change of heart lasted all of eight months.

In December 2009, the StarPhoenix reported that the Saskatchewan Party had held a $200-a-ticket fundraising reception in Toronto on November 26.

Among the organizers of the event was Kory Teneycke, former press secretary to Prime Minister Stephen Harper and a friend of Wall’s since the two worked on a federal campaign in 1993.

In attendance were federal Finance Minister Jim Flaherty and former Ontario premier Mike Harris.

According to reporter James Wood, Wall made no apologies for the event. He even tried to justify it by saying it was different than a leader’s dinner because it was “far less formal.”

Wall said he had no interest in following some other provinces in banning out-of-province donations to political parties.

“We’ve always fundraised extra-provincially,” he told reporters at the legislature.

“There’s a lot of companies across the country who are vested in the province, who like what’s going on in Saskatchewan, who . . . want to support the party and I think it’s important that we never deny the chance for people who want to give to give. So we’re going to continue to fundraise outside the province.” [Wall defends Ontario fundraiser (StarPhoenix, December 4, 2009)]

The man has no shame.

Given Wall’s penchant for flip-flopping and going back on his word, it seems a safe bet that some time between now and the November 7, 2011, provincial election the Saskatchewan Party will hold another fundraiser in Alberta.

The mask is finally coming off. Wall has gotten away with smiling down from billboards, lying about the state of the province's finances, all paid for with money from out of province corporations. Thanks to Lingenfelter and company, people are finally getting a good look at the fast-talking 46 year-old from Swift Current, and it ain't a pretty picture. God help us all if we are foolish enough to give him a second term!

I don't see what is wrong with that. That means that Wall is bringing out of province funds into Saskatchewan. That helps the economy here. Growth of local business and expansion of out of province companies into Saskatchewan stimulates our economy.

As for the donations, it is pretty similar to the NDP donations coming from Unions and other traditional NDP supporters, isn't it?

Ya Arnie, lets vote in a power hungry NDP government again so they can build the unions and finish destroying whats left of the small farmers and private business. Not sure how you will get your government check without taxpayers that don't get paid with tax money, Your precious NDP had this province for 16 years, and blame Devine all you want, Devine took over a sask that was in a recession from the previous NDP Government. Sask has been in a permanent recession since Douglas has his braindead ideas made mandatory, while the rest of Canada grew. "Socialism, ideas so good, they have to be made law!" With the resources this province has, and the only thing the Dictatorship of NDP could think of was to raise taxes and let roads fall apart! So lets vote junior Lenin into power and chase the rest of the real workers out of here, and the rest of you can fight over the scraps that the NDP throw for you!
