Shortsighted and cheap, too 

So, not only is the Sask Party making decisions based on ideology rather than business sense but they're also proving themselves cheapskates and short-sighted ones to boot.
The sensible thing to do with a windfall in land sale profits is to use it for long-term investments in Saskatchewan families through programs like the Station 20 West and the children's dental care program, or toward long-term investments in Saskatchewan infrastructure, through building bridges and improving the highways -- or at least use it to leverage private investments in economic development like the PA mill.
But no, Brad and the boys would rather fritter it away by letting municipalities use it to cover this spring's municipal budget increases.
And next year, when this provincial money is long gone, the mill rate increases will be real whoppers. Sigh.
