Joint Statement in Response to the Government of Saskatchewan Imposing New Labour Measures in Health Care

Joint Statement from Vicki Mowat, Official Opposition Health Critic, and Carla Beck, Official Opposition Labour Critic in Response to the Government of Saskatchewan Imposing New Labour Measures in Health Care

The only reason why the Sask. Party is doing this today is because they’ve failed to take any of the steps necessary to get the 4th wave of COVID-19 under control. If Scott Moe had listened to Dr. Shahab and public health experts and introduced indoor masking and proof of vaccination requirements, our healthcare system wouldn’t be in this dire situation and on the brink of collapse. 

Scott Moe took his eye off the ball and took the summer off. He should have been working collaboratively with health care workers throughout the summer to ensure these necessary agreements were in place. Instead, we now have arrangements being imposed on workers, record numbers of new COVID-19 cases, and non-COVID patients being forced to go without needed treatments. All of this could have been prevented if Scott Moe had listened to the experts and focused on controlling the 4th wave.
