City mouse vs. country mouse

The Mayor suggests we should run our own census to the tune of $1.8 milllion because he believes the federal document is wrong on our population numbers and it would benefit us based on provincial funding done on a per capita basis.

This presumes that the province will do all its funding on a per capita basis, which would take money out of rural Saskatchewan. You have to question why the provincial government would take money from the rural areas which is the backbone of its support. A counter-argument would be that the cities benefit from economy of scale.

Do we really want to kill off what little is left of our rural areas?
