Mr. Speaker, one of the things that we have to realize in Saskatchewan is that we have dipped in and out of the ability to be a have and a have not province. One of the future successes of remaining a have province is to exclude the non-renewable resources that the province generates, which is exactly the promise that the Prime Minister made.
I think a more relevant question would be why the Prime Minister and the members from Saskatchewan would make that promise, make strong moves toward implementing that promise in various comments and correspondence, but actually not do it at the end of the day. This hurts Saskatchewan. This hurts the future prospects of many opportunities that could otherwise be realized in Saskatchewan over the next little while. To me the real question is why that promise was broken.
