Well, to be fair to FogPub, the SaskTel crown corporation is able to provide much lower telecom prices than the big publicly-traded players in the cellular space, though they (admittedly) only have to maintain infrastructure in a single province...

and you might notice sasktel has no timeline for 5g.  other provinces have it now.

On the BC Liberals ad card featuring Wilkinson there is a quotation: “Businesses are literally hanging on by a thread and waiting for funds...we are not getting any help”. It is attributed to “Globe and Mail, Oct. 5, 2020”.
Who is not getting any help? Wilkinson? The Globe and Mail?
Sloppy, ambiguous citation.

This is behind a paywall, but the Globe and Mail - which is anything *but* a left-leaning journal- has all but endorsed the NDP in a recently published editorial.  They went after Wilkinson's party on the proposed PST tax cut, saying that Horgan's plans are more fiscally responsible.  They also said that the Liberal proposals on the Opioid public health emergency are inadequate.  From the final paragraph:  "On the unusually quiet pandemic campaign trail, Mr. Wilkinson’s leadership has at times been unsteady, from ill-conceived promises to poor handling of issues with some candidates. Incumbency can sometimes be a disadvantage in politics, but not this time around for the NDP. On the whole, they have governed well and in particular during the pandemic."   See:  https://www.theglobe...reversed-roles/

In Horgan's ads he looks approachable, like he would actually listen to you. Wilky looks like someone who has made up his mind about you and wants you to go away.

I relate very much to Andrew Wilkinson when it comes to people approaching me

I see our friend Ben is at it again.....

 

Not sure if his endorsement to destroy a neighbourhood near you is a good one for the Greens...

He is also out looking for you to pay for his Pension.....

I rather enjoyed this response to his Tweet:

 

".....I’ve already mailed in my vote but I haven’t felt the need to broadcast my choice on twitter...."

I was quite surprised by the Globe and Mail editorial. It falls slightly short of an endorsement, I would think, but newspapers have been endorsing leaders less as of late. I don't think they endorsed any leader/party for the last couple of federal elections.
