Congratulations to Premier Wall and his new cabinet as they were officially sworn in on November 21, 2007. They now officially begin their responsibilities as Saskatchewan’s new government. I would encourage all residents of Saskatchewan to cut them some slack over the next few months as they get settled in and begin to learn what it takes to govern. The men and women who make up this new government have no experience in government. Keep in mind that some of these people have no idea what it takes to be an MLA let alone a cabinet minister. Considering the learning curve, it is only reasonable that we should lay off our demands and let this new Saskatchewan government proceed at a pace they feel comfortable with over the next few months.
We should offer our support to this new government and make every effort to be part of the solution and not part of the problem. We have, for too long, heard about all the potential Saskatchewan holds and if we all work hard together and with our new government then I believe our true potential can be achieved. We should get on side with this new government. If this new government fails us, and I hope they don’t, then we may be justified in condemning them at some point in the future. Until then, we should cut them some slack.
