Meili slams Moe for failure to develop made-in-Sask climate change plan

Following the Federal Government’s announcement this morning that Saskatchewan residents would see a direct rebate of the money raised by their tax on pollution, Ryan Meili slammed Scott Moe’s Sask. Party government for surrendering the initiative to the federal government and leaving Saskatchewan without a plan designed by and for Saskatchewan people.

“Scott Moe has once again come up empty in providing Saskatchewan with sound economic and environmental leadership,” Meili said. “He’s spent the last year pointing fingers and railing against a flawed federal approach, but he’s shown no initiative and no leadership in putting forward a plan that works for Saskatchewan people.

“Our provincial government had the chance to design the program and allocate the revenue from it, but they squandered that chance and now we have neither.”

Meili pointed to his Renew Saskatchewan plan as one example of how Saskatchewan could show leadership in developing new economic opportunities for Saskatchewan people while at the same time meeting our moral obligation to address the climate crisis. “The climate crisis is real and government should be taking bold action to remove the barriers that keep people from acting on it. Moe’s failure to be proactive on this hurts us economically today and leaves us more vulnerable to changes tomorrow.”
