NDP Leader Ryan Meili enters fall session with a call to action

After months of outreach across Saskatchewan, a successful by-election, a critic shuffle that presented the province with an NDP government-in-waiting, and an energized and enthusiastic fall convention, Ryan Meili and the NDP are heading into the fall sitting of the Legislature calling for action to secure jobs for Saskatchewan people, improve our province’s health outcomes, and restore funding to our schools.

“In community after community, we’ve seen the consequences of the choices that Moe and the Sask. Party,” Meili said. “He’s spent his time in office pointing fingers and sowing division, but the people of Saskatchewan are still waiting for answers to some very basic questions:

  • Will Moe reverse the harmful expansion of the PST to construction and restaurant meals that has further damaged an already-struggling economy?
  • Will he restore the funding cut from our kids’ classrooms?
  • What is his government doing to address our province’s worst-in-the-nation health outcomes?
  • And, after ten years of boom times, will he be honest about where the money went that could and should pay for these essential services?”

With a focus on health outcomes, support for education, the job losses in our struggling economy, and getting to the bottom of the GTH and other scandals, Meili’s NDP are setting an agenda that speaks to the real needs and concerns of Saskatchewan people.

Meili says he’s entering the fall session with the voices and faces of Saskatchewan people foremost in his mind and will be doing all he can to ensure that their concerns are heard. “I want the Premier to know that Saskatchewan people are watching. As the Official Opposition, we’ll be working hard to raise their concerns. People across the province deserve better answers than they’ve been getting.”
