In the last couple of days the Saskatchewan Party has been under a bit of heat.
With a 17-year-old videotape surfacing exposing MP Tom Lukiwski and Premier Brad Wall saying not exactly the nicest words, has caused the media to jump all over the story. A story that has been blown out of proportion.

Obviously the Liberals are pushing for Lukiwski to step down from his position but is it necessary?

I think had the tape been recorded last year, yes, Lukiwski should have probably stepped down, but because it was over 17 years-ago I think it's water under the bridge.

Lukiwski made anti-gay comments on the tape, which obviously has angered some groups, but has since apologize for the remarks. Brad Wall also made some comments on the tape making fun of Roy Romanow, but as well has made a public apology.

Both these men, one of which I have had the chance to speak with on several occasions, are smart, outgoing, nice men and don't deserve to have old business be slammed against them.

I think we all need to focus on bigger more important stories rather than a 17 year old tape.

    These comments were made at the time when a large percentage of our country felt the same and openly versed by many.It has been only the last 10 years or so that we as the people have opened our minds and made changes for the betterment of all.We have come a long way over the last century.Are we going to have our parents accused of many wrongs that are thought of today and sued for wrongful raising because it is not acceptable today.A good majority of us might not have had a good upbringing because of standards today but have been blessed with a wonderful standard of values and a life more fitting than a great number of our young ones today.
