What are the odds? 

What odds will someone give me?
It's at least ten to one that Saskatchewan won't actually get the revised equalization formula Harper promised a year ago, regardless of what Alberta may say. There will be a heavy dose of gobbletygook in the federal budget speech -- I expect to hear some blather about "maintaining our commitment to a coordinated fulfillment approach" and other buzzwords to that effect -- but in the end our resource revenues won't be deleted from the formula. The bottom line is that Saskatchewan will be hundreds of millions of dollars poorer. And Calvert's complaints will be dismissed as "whining". Whadda ya wanna bet?
