    I certainly can understand why our Premier reacts the way he does, he wants what is best for his province, but it is always too elusive, nobody else seems to want a good economy with our natural resource base working for our province. You would think the other Political Parties would be toeing the line for what he wants for our province, because what he wants is the best, but political partisanship gets in the way. If they toe the line, eventually their time will surely come and then they will be in power with economic conditions which make governance for them much easier. I will add here that Partisanship Politics is destructive. I might add that it isn't present in Saskatchewan, everyone there is toeing the party line for their Premier on its Potash Resource and they are working very hard against the Federal Government in its quest to allow that wonderful resource to be sold to BHP Billington. I hope Saskatchewan wins there. Given the facts that all of our natural resources have been exported out of here for the benefit of other areas of Canada, mostly for Central Canada and then to have someone like Coyne forever toeing the line for Ottawa over our province's right to its resource base to create a bouyant economy is so unfair.

    ''Such condescension, of course, is not new''. No, it definitely isn't new, nor is it confined to Ottawa. To complain when those in the media espouse this type of view yet turn a blind eye when our own premier reflects the same sentiment is beyond hypocritical.

    Wow! Peter please keep up the great work and Thanks a Billion for saying what you have said in this wonderful article. I have been waiting for The Telegram to print such an article with such thought provoking information for far too long.
