Beck to continue to fight for affordability, accessible healthcare and good-paying jobs

Session priorities have been identified based on leader and caucus tours

REGINA - Today, Official Opposition Leader Carla Beck announced that job creation, healthcare and the cost of living will be the Saskatchewan NDP’s top priorities in the upcoming spring session.

“No matter what community I visit, people say Scott Moe just isn't focused on the issues that matter most to them, like healthcare, the outrageous cost of food and fuel, and good-paying jobs,” said Beck. “That’s what we’ll be prosecuting over the next ten weeks all the way through to the 2024 election.”

“This is a government that has been in power for sixteen years. It’s time that they own that record instead of pointing fingers to a government that was around when I was in high school. We’re going to bring back local voices to the decision-making table.”

Since Scott Moe took office, Saskatchewan has ranked dead last in Canada in total job creation. New Statistics Canada figures released last week show that Saskatchewan is second last in average weekly earnings growth since Scott Moe became premier. 

Beck said that when she’s not in the Legislature over the next few months, she’ll be focused on listening to the concerns of Saskatchewan workers and job creators to deliver more good-paying jobs and ensure Saskatchewan communities are prosperous in the decades to come.

“With Scott Moe at the wheel, our province is dead last in job growth and second last in wage growth,” said Jobs and Economy Critic Aleana Young. “Saskatchewan needs more jobs and bigger paycheques, two key things Scott Moe is failing to deliver.”
