BECK: Scott Moe is selling out Saskatchewan

Beck’s Hire Saskatchewan Plan to put Saskatchewan workers, companies first 

REGINA - Today, Official Opposition Leader Carla Beck committed to putting Saskatchewan workers and companies first when it comes to public infrastructure projects and contracts, something Premier Scott Moe is failing to do.

“Scott Moe and the Sask. Party are selling out Saskatchewan,” said Beck. “When it comes to public contracts, Saskatchewan workers and Saskatchewan businesses should come first. I didn’t run for office to help put food on the table in California.”

“We need to be hiring Saskatchewan workers, growing Saskatchewan businesses, and building made-in-Saskatchewan products. That’s what people expect and that’s my focus.”

Beck’s Hire Saskatchewan Plan would have the provincial government prioritize growing Saskatchewan businesses, hiring Saskatchewan workers, and building more made-in-Saskatchewan products when public dollars are being spent.

Beck's announcement comes as Scott Moe and the Sask. Party are under fire for out-of-province outsourcing in numerous sectors, including:

The Greater Saskatoon Chamber of Commerce is today calling on the Moe government to release its market feasibility study that supposedly justified opening the Saskatchewan market to a second tire processor. Members of the business community previously requested this document via freedom of information request from Moe’s Ministry of the Environment. The document returned to them was almost completely redacted.
