Sask. Party must accept responsibility, not punish workers: NDP

NDP take stand for Saskatchewan workers

This morning, New Democrats stood their ground in defence of Saskatchewan families and workers. NDP Caucus Chair and Ethics and Democracy Critic, along with NDP House Leader Warren McCall, shut down a meeting where the Sask. Party was attempting to pass their latest plan to attack Saskatchewan families and workers with even deeper cuts. 

NDP ready to hold Sask. Party to account for cuts, sell-offs and growing deficit

With a new NDP MLA and the Spring Session set to begin on Monday, NDP Leader Trent Wotherspoon said the NDP Opposition will continue to pressure the government to stop making Saskatchewan people pay for Sask. Party mismanagement, scandal and waste with their callous cuts and desperate sell-offs.

“I’ve been hearing it across the province and we just heard it loud and clear from the people of Meewasin,” Wotherspoon said. “Saskatchewan people are fed up with the Sask. Party’s lies about the deficit and debt, the billions wasted through mismanagement like the bypass overrun, and the GTH land scandal, and they aren’t going to stand by while the Sask. Party forces them to pay the price. The NDP will continue to push for accountability, honesty, and an end to Sask. Party cuts to the services we need like education and health care, and schemes to sell-off SaskTel and our valuable Crowns.”
