Wall slams Trudeau for naming Saskatchewan 'best province' (satire)

just the facts

Saskatchewan premier Brad Wall is condemning a new federal government policy that will officially name Saskatchewan the best province in the country.

“It’s totally unacceptable,” Wall said. “We are obviously not the best province in the country, Alberta is. I’ve always wanted to be Alberta.”

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau made the announcement at a press conference Thursday saying he realized the policy was needed after he saw his latest polling numbers.

“For some reason, I’m extremely unpopular in Saskatchewan,” Trudeau said. “I can’t stand it when people don’t like me.”

Wall, who for decades has been saying Saskatchewan is the best province, was asked about his change of heart on Friday at the Legislature in Regina.

“Obviously when Mr. Trudeau came out with this announcement, I had to re-evaluate my position,” he said. “If the prime minister thinks we are great, we must be really awful. In fact, we might be the worst province.”

Trudeau said he is not worried that the move will alienate other provinces.

“I don’t think that’s an issue,” he said. “They love me everywhere else. Well, maybe not so much in Alberta, but maybe we will do something nice for them too. Maybe a new national energy program or something.”

Wall asserted he would continue to fight the new policy.

“We have the highest rates of drunk driving, the city with the highest crime severity index and the economy has taken a downturn,” he said. “We have a lot not going for us right now.”
