Spring has sprung and the regina mom has been busy offline.
Imagine my surprise, when gathered with a few others, I learned that Premier Wall believes that women in Saskatchewan have equality! I’ve been working for women’s equality for more than twenty years now, so I’m totally amazed! A brief scan of his Cabinet confirms it, however. There is no Minister Responsible for the Status of Women.
I mean, really, we should have seen it coming, what with his buddy-buddy-ness with PM Harper. For some reason, however, I believed that Wall really was going to be different. But in fact he is more like the NDP than ever. He is more of the same-old, same-old graduate Saskatchewan Old Boys’ Club in which the Saskatchewan NDP’s old boys held memberships.
And that’s terrible news for the women of Saskatchewan, women who will be even further marginalized by uncaring white men with power.
