Think Big

This video was just posted to YouTube by the Government of Saskatchewan.  The quote at 2:18 by Scott Saxberg of Crescent Point Energy.  Here is the extended quote from the directors cut.

“Saskatchewan is a different province in that they have a great regulatory regime and they are always continually optimizing it and they are trying to improve upon it and work with industry to grow that industry.”

That is not the role of the regulatory regime.  The role of a regulatory regime is to protect investors/citizens/environment from industry, not help grow it.  Also, the day after Hitachi makes massive cuts in Saskatoon, someone decided to post a video of it’s CEO talking about innovation in Saskatchewan?  Then the same Cameco CEO that doesn’t like to pay taxes here?  If I had paid for this video (as a taxpayer I guess I have), I want it scrubbed from the web and never shown to anyone again.
