Sask. Party Premier Brad Wall announced Wednesday, April 15, 2009 that he was hiring the South Carolina based law firm of Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough LLP to represent Saskatchewan's interests in Washington, D.C. specifically, and in the United States generally.

What the Premier neglected to announce is that some of the areas Nelson Mullins specializes in is defeating union certification drives and advising companies on union avoidance.

Considering that U.S. President Obama supports unions - I wonder if that was such a good choice.
