Saint Jack & Romanow Road

It’s not nice to speak ill of the dead so I’ll be careful but I’m more than a little tired of the platitudes that are raining down on Jack’s corpse.  Just in case you didn’t realize it, the man could NOT actually walk on water.  As far as his spectacular electoral prowess is concerned it seemed to me that on election night he failed miserably outside Quebec and rode a wave of separatist disconnect in that peculiar jurisdiction.  Here in Saskatchewan, supposedly the socialist heartland, he was shut out completely.  And that’s all I’m going to say about that except to note that it was a pretty class act on Harper’s part to offer up a state funeral.

Now back to Saskatchewan where we are reminded about our years of NDP mismanagement every time we drive anywhere.  Which is why I am proposing that we start naming stretches of provincial “highways” for those shining stars out of NDP history who are directly responsible for the catastrophic state of our provincial highway system.  How about “Blakeney Boulevard” for #25 highway between Birch Hills and St. Louis?  Its not that long since this highway was decent pavement but you’d never know it now – its barely up to main farm access standard gravel.  I’m thinking it wouldn’t be hard to come up with a Romanow Road, Calvert Crescent and Lingenfelter Lane to commemorate those other provincial socialists who put safe injection sites for crack whore mothers ahead of maintaining the provincial infrastructure.
