Ahead of the opening of the fall sitting of the Legislature, our Premier is talking about allowing private liquor stores.
He says the major cities in the province are growing and rather than spending money on the bricks and mortar and the overhead for new liquor stores the cash might be better spent on roads, highways and health care.
He says existing provincially controlled liquor stores would not be privatized.
Wall also commented on a BMO report on Tuesday that said BHP Billiton should not go forward with the Jansen Potash Mine.
The report said the world does not need Jansen's capacity for at least another decade.
Wall says BHP can make that decision for themselves.
And on foreign takeovers, Wall says it appears companies haven't learned anything from the arguments used to determine whether or not BHP should be allowed to take over Potash Corp.
He says companies need to figure out that to be more successful with Investment Canada, they should be prepared to say why their deal is good for Canada.
