The First Session of The Twenty-Seventh Legislative Assembly of Saskatchewan is set for Monday, December 5, 2011. This is when our provincial politicians will attempt to work together on the legislative agenda set by the government. The "together" may be difficult.
There is already some competition within the SaskParty to see who will be elected as Speaker of the Legislative Assembly. The current speaker, Don Toth seemed to be doing quite well. He is apparently now being challenged for that position from within his own party. Is the SaskParty is looking for someone who will favour them in rulings? Or is someone not likely to be in Cabinet looking for a higher pay cheque? Either way, the conflicts and division among our elected officials has already started before the opening of the Legislature. Is anyone surprised?
