The NDP Caucus team was on the road Friday, travelling from Regina to Moose Jaw by STC to discuss and listen to the many concerns that Saskatchewan people have about the Sask. Party’s billion-dollar tax hike, and deep cuts.
“People all across the province are being hurt and have real concerns about the Sask. Party’s deep cuts and tax hikes,” said NDP Leader Trent Wotherspoon. “It’s clear the Sask. Party MLAs and cabinet have forgotten who they work for. The people we’re talking to are angry that the government is making them pay for the Sask. Party’s mismanagement, scandal and waste.”
The NDP MLAs are meeting with community leaders, small business owners, library workers, and people throughout the community to discuss the implications of the budget, including the scrapping and sell-off of STC, the cuts to libraries and schools, and the Sask. Party’s downloading of millions of dollars onto the backs of communities.
“This is about listening, but it’s also about standing up and rallying with the people of the province who are tired of the Sask. Party’s dishonesty and broken promises,” Wotherspoon said. “We’ve heard the disappointment from the people of Saskatchewan, and it’s important that we fight to stop these Sask. Party cuts.”
