An open letter to Premier Brad Wall on Potash Corp. Add to ...

Dear Premier Brad Wall,

I read your letter to the chairman of Potash Corp. of Saskatchewan Inc., admonishing the company for cutting 18 per cent of its work force while maintaining that the quarterly dividend to shareholders is – in the words of chief executive Bill Doyle – “sacrosanct.”

I understand your concerns: No premier can shrug when the province’s top company starts shedding jobs but takes care of shareholders. It doesn’t look good. If I were premier, I’d be disappointed too.
