Opposition questions restrictions on media

This is absolutely fascinating. The Sask Party criticizing the government because Al Gore's contract will not provide special entrance for the media to attend his speech in Regina on April 23, 2007.

"With taxpayers footing the bill, why on earth did the premier agree to these kind of restrictions, restrictions that will limit who will hear the former vice-president's views?" - Ken Krawetz

This is the same opposition who apparently has no problem with Alberta and B.C. signing away the democratic rights of voters and citizens in those two provinces without any consultation - out of public scrutiny - in a secret back room deal - without anybody being able to hear what the Premiers of those two provinces were up to.

The same opposition who roundly criticizes the Saskatchewan Government for not signing the deal and for not being in that back room with the Premiers of B.C. and Alberta.

What a bunch of hypocrits.

I'm surprised they weren't self-righteously indignant that the "Rolling Stones" concert had restrictions on cameras and recording devices. As if the provincial government had anything to do with that.
