Fall Session: Sask. NDP committed to addressing issues that matter most

Sask. Party ends session without credible plans for healthcare, affordability, jobs

REGINA - On the last day of the fall session, Official Opposition Leader Carla Beck remained focused on the issues that matter most to Saskatchewan people, grilling the Sask. Party government on their failures to fix the health system and the affordability crisis.

“Saskatchewan has so much potential, and the Sask. Party is holding us back,” said Beck. “Hospitals are closing, hard-working families are struggling to put food on the table, and instead of fixing these issues, the Sask. Party closed profitable liquor stores and poured taxpayer dollars into a redundant police force and a costly new tax system. Saskatchewan people can’t afford to keep paying for Scott Moe’s mistakes.”

The Official Opposition called on Scott Moe’s Sask. Party government throughout the fall session to address Saskatchewan’s national-leading rates of economic anxiety and uncertainty by:

Scott Moe’s Sask. Party government also failed to put forward a serious plan for healthcare, despite sitting on billions of dollars in windfall resources revenues and the provincial auditor finding that the government's health plan is inadequate and would likely leave the province over a thousand health workers short and with even more hospital closures. 

“Right from day one – when Moe’s government invited convicted killer Colin Thatcher to the Throne Speech – it’s been clear that the Sask. Party’s priorities were out of whack,” said Beck. “The fall sitting may be ending but the Saskatchewan NDP remain as committed as ever to making life more affordable, strengthening our hospitals and creating good, mortgage-paying jobs that people can be proud of.”
