Premier Lorne Calvert, tired of waiting for an energy accord similar to the one the Paul Martin government struck months ago with Newfoundland and Nova Scotia, launched a "red flag" campaign last week to put pressure on the federal Liberals to act.
But instead of ordering Canadian flags taken down from provincial buildings, as Newfoundland Premier Danny Williams did to pressure Ottawa on a deal, Calvert asked Saskatchewan residents to "raise a flag" in support of his cause.
