This week's commentary by PC Party President Grant Schmidt
I am using the Leader’s Monday time slot to take care of P.C. Party Business.
There will be a by-election in Saskatoon Meewasin before June. We guess Brad Wall will call a by-election on January 31st, 2017 for the end of February.
Why will Wall call so soon? To get his lost seat out of the way before the ugly March, April, May or June budget. We know from last year’s election Wall has mismanaged the boom so bad he is having a hard time counting up his deficit.
Last year Wall did not figure out the deficit problems until June, well after the election.
Now for the good news. Last week Saskatoon P.C.s met to organize So far some people have shown interest in being our P.C. candidate.
David Prokopchuk has declared he is running for the Saskatoon Meewasin nomination. If any other P.C.s are interested in running in this by-election, please call our Moose Jaw office, Leader – Rick, Past President – Lori Isinger, or myself.
To move into the future, the P.C. Party needs progressive conservative policies. This province needs a modern conservative party with a defined economic and social purpose.
For over thirty years, I have been studying and thinking as to what does progressive conservative mean? After this lengthy search for wisdom, I have declared myself an incentivist.
According to my research, incentivize is becoming a popular word in the Canadian and American media. I can only find a handful of incentivists in the world and they cannot agree on a definition. At present, incentivist is not well defined.
Modern conservatives need an incentivist agenda to counter the left wing activists’ unrealistic agenda.
In the future, I will explain an incentivist agenda and my proposal for our party to adopt modern conservative policies.
