Saskatchewan Premier ridicules Stephen Harper

CANADA - Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall ridiculed Stephen Harper today saying it's time for the federal Conservatives to get their heads "out of their kilts" and help the country's economy.

Wall said today he was dismayed by the actions of Stephen Harper's minority Conservative government and his lack of leadership.
"We didn't have to be here. If the economic statement wouldn't have also had a lot of gamesmanship involved, if it would have been about leadership, we wouldn't be here," said Wall.
Wall said there was hope after last month's federal election that Stephen Harper might change for the better but "somewhere along the line, political interests began to overtake the interests of Canada."

Alberta Premier Ed Stelmach weighed in, saying right now Canada needs "sane, prudent leadership dealing with the bigger elephant in the room, which is the global economic crisis," Stelmach said. The proposed Coalition government will focus on the economy, unlike Stephen Harper who's government previously have focused on gay marriages and maintaining its pathetically poor environmental record.

While a new poll suggested the vast majority of Quebecers would prefer a coalition government to another federal election, Premier Jean Charest also weighed in on the topic, saying he preferred a strong stable government that will support the economy.
"Political instability and economic instability make for a bad mix and the proof is what is happening in Ottawa," Charest said during an election stop. "When it's both of them at once, not only is it not ideal, it doesn't go in the direction of what we should be doing about the economy."

"Whoever is eventually in government, however they get there, I'm going to have to work with them," said Manitoba Premier Gary Doer. "What I feel and what I like is irrelevant. I have to work with whoever is sworn in as prime minister."
