Secret Video Found of SaskParty Budget Deliberations! #skpoli #SaveSKLibraries

The 2016 Saskatchewan Provincial election took place one year ago today. Like me, I’m sure you’re shocked to realise that “Cut rural library budgets by over 50%” wasn’t listed in the Platform the Sask Party ran on during that election.

I’d heard of Father John Misty before but didn’t know much about him.  But I was pretty impressed with the second song he did on Saturday Night Live this past weekend – sort of reminds me of the first time I heard Bright Eyes sing “Landlocked Blues” on some late night CBC show. “Pure Comedy” […]
