Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall, not typically a pain in the Prime Minister’s side, is unimpressed with the federal budget. And he’s not afraid to say so with the benefit of alliteration. “The grade I give it is a D … D for deficit … D for delay … And D for disappointing.” Wall had initially seemed supportive, but, upon further review, he’s decided it fails to meet the needs of his province and left his government to fend for itself. “We were looking for a booster shot from the federal initiative,” he says. “I think we’re going to be relying on ourselves to get that done.”
Is Brad Wall the new Danny Williams?
"The grade I give it is a D...D for deficit...D for delay...And D for disappointing."
