The Sask. NDP's pre-election campaign

Wow, who know what all can happen with Saskatchewan politics during summer? But quite obviously a lot can happen, and don't forget the controversy with that.

To start off, I should mention what is becoming a pretty controversial thing in this province: the NDP campaign. Currently, the most noticeable aspect of the pre-election campaign are the 'Wolf-in-sheep's-clothing' ads, which appear of buses and billboards (the linked news article only really mentions the pamphlets), and will be in a pamphlet come election. Ever since this campaign came out (about a week ago), there has been at least a couple of articles on it every day in both of Saskatchewan's major newspapers. During this time, the Saskatchewan Party (essentially SK's Conservative Party) has spent all their efforts on trying to attack the NDP's campaign (surprisingly, they're not really attacking the NDP itself).

The next portion of the NDP's pre-election campaign is called, "The Same Old Sask Party". The website pretty much just speaks for itself. So far, it is an internet-based campaign.

I will post yet again a couple times in the near future on other matters in the Saskosphere (by the way, that's not a real word).

"Saskosphere (by the way, that's not a real word)."

why attack the NDP? that pathetic attempt at smear has most people laughing at the NDP. People rarely vote for those they laugh at.

I admire that you question the NDP's propaganda campaign.

People that support parties blindly, are a threat to democracy itself.

The Sask Party is a moderate party, that will be welcomed change in Saskatchewan. I hope you can see that this NDP desperation is just that. They are desperate.

Matthew, I didn't at all give my opinion on the campaign in this post, nor did I even question it. (My opinion, if fact, is that it is a great start to the NDP campaign.) I was only giving the facts about the campaign and the controversy (of others) surrounding it.

Once again, we can see that a Sask. Party person is twisting the facts and not getting to the heart of an issue. And that's quite sad …
