Bater on the Economy

This morning the next Leader of the Saskatchewan Liberal Party, Ryan Bater, made his first public appearance in his role as Leader-Elect. At a breakfast event in Saskatoon, he laid out some initial ideas about managing the resource boom - including a focus on debt-elimination and the creation of a sovereign heritage fund. You can read some initial coverage of his speech here and here.

It is too bad I couldn't be there (I'm currently making my way to Boston with some pit-stops in Ottawa and Toronto along the way), but I have heard he did a great job. Congrats Ryan - keep it up!
