Political leadership in Saskatchewan and Canada:
the inner sanctum of the privileged and of the corrupted

Nipawin - November 5, 2000 - By: Mario deSantis

Dwain Lingenfelter

Our experiences in no-fault government in Canada is a reflection of our decadent democracy
which put money and speculation before the interests of people. This no-fault approach to
government has been more severe in Saskatchewan where a socialistic regime at the mercy of
our big corporate culture and corrupted politicians has led this small province to become the
worst run province in the country(1). This blatant lack of democracy and speculative motivation
is best represented by our former deputy premier Dwain Lingenfelter who has recently left
the provincial cabinet to join a $250,000 executive position with Occidental Oil of Calgary
while his poor wife Louise Simard, former minister of health, has been left all alone in her
Regina's mansion to head the notorious Saskatchewan Association of Health Organizations



look after himself

It is not the $250,000 that bothers me, it is the fact that this prominent politician had built a
career within a socialist party for the only reason to look after himself, his poor wife and his
friends. This is pure deception and you have to tell me what is the difference between left
and right or between one party's platform and another, when everybody agrees to serve
themselves once in power(2).




There is no difference, and that is why the first priority for all people of any colour is to
combat the current political corruption(3)! Yesterday I wrote an article on the hearing for
Colin Thatcher's early parole(4) and I was amazed at the statement made by psychiatrist
Julio Arboleda-Florez that our elements of leadership are the same elements which
characterize a psycopath, that is glibness, grandiose sense of self-worth, pathological lying,
no remorse, no sense of guilt, lack of empathy and callousness. And I am disconcerted to
realize how far away this characterization of leadership is from what it should be, a leadership
for teaching people how to learn better in a knowledge society(5), a leadership for coaching
people how to become leaders themselves(6). Leadership in Saskatchewan, and for that
matter in Canada, is not only the inner sanctum of the privileged but the inner sanctum of
the corrupted, and our politicians are at the forefront of this new world's vision.
