platforms change from election to election Smile

i think you mean the guiding principals

well quite similar to the ones the saskatchewan party uses is what has been tossed around in the past. (with less emphasis on Saskatchewan of course)
Guiding Principles

1. Economic growth and job creation through the private sector, not government, as the engine of the economy;
2. Smaller, less intrusive, more efficient government;
3. Steady, gradual reduction in government spending and taxation while maintaining a firm commitment to balanced budgets;
4. A high-quality health care system for all Saskatchewan people, regardless of where they live within the province;
5. A strong social safety net which protects those who truly need support while encouraging individuals to become self sufficient;
6. Democratic reform to make government more responsive to the people it serves;
7. Individual freedom and the equality of opportunity for all citizens; and
8. The constant improvement of Saskatchewan's economic and social conditions within a strong and united Canada.

Thats something that we would have to vote on. Based on the NDP it appears to be mandatory.

Let me think on it. We would have to make sure that JTF never ends up as Minister of Finance. Then the party could truly be accused of spending like a drunken sailor.

"The underlying point is good, but I think that expression is actually unfair to drunken sailors. Drunken sailors generally spend cash that they’ve already earned themselves, rather than running up debt to be paid by others. If our politicians started spending like drunken sailors, it would in fact represent a dramatic improvement"

nothing but awesome!

I want to shave my legs to wear fish nets, not be secretary. I know you'll be begging me to be secretary once you've seen my legs.
