Manitoba Premier Greg Selinger is not too impressed with one of his counterpart's thoughts on equalization. Saskatchewan's Brad Wall is talking about cuts to the program, and using some of the money instead for tax cuts or infrastructure projects.

(Selinger says Saskatchewan benefited greatly from equalization until 2008, when it stopped qualifying for the payments.)
