Who's up to bat?

I can't guess the reason the provincial government refused to accept the all-party Board of Internal Economy's recommendation for a Chief Electoral Officer (SP July 13/10), but the stalemate in the decision does not bode well for the next election. However, while they duke out that decision can they not proceed with the 120 recommendations for changes to the legislation? I was taken aback by Minister Morgan's laissez faire response when asked about the possible repercussions resulting on the delay in hiring for the position which was, summed up, a simple I don't know, maybe or maybe not.

This follows on lack of response to the Privacy Commissioner's recommendations to improve decades old legislation as a result of breech of confidentiality by health region employees wrongly accessing patient records.

These matters need to be addressed.

I know Minister Morgan. He is by nature a consensus builder. But when consensus can't be established its time to step up to the plate and do what you were elected to do - make decisions in the best interest of citizens.

Don's up to bat and I hope, for all our sakes, that he hits a home run.

  1. Morgan did make a decision which was in the best interest of the people of Saskatchewan but the Saskatchewan party caucus rejected hiring a neutral individual for elections Saskatchewan.
