Moe leaves province behind with 3rd India trip

Moe and his ministers have spent $232,341 on India trips to date

REGINA - Today, Premier Scott Moe embarked on his third trip to India. He leaves behind a province struggling with high costs and hospitals that feel broken.

“After 17 years in power, the Sask. Party has completely lost touch with the challenges working families are facing,” said Official Opposition Trade Critic Aleana Young. “This government has already spent a million dollars on a trade office in India this year alone, supposedly to cut down on expensive trips like this. It looks like Premier Moe is flying away from his problems and taxpayers are footing the bill.”

Premier Scott Moe’s third trip to India comes on the heels of his controversial Dubai junket that cost taxpayers at least a million dollars. His most recent trip to India in February 2023 cost taxpayers $56,905.51 and came just two days after his Agriculture Minister got home from India. Premier Moe’s first trip to India was in November 2018 and cost $59,514.14.

Moe and his ministers have spent $232,341 on India trips to date. 

Sask. Party Minister David Marit:

  • Feb. 6-14, 2020 - $27,743.74
  • Feb. 13-22, 2023 - $32,323.35

Sask. Party Minister Jeremy Harrison:

  • Nov. 16-23, 2019 - $24,794.89
  • Apr. 23-29, 2022 - $31,059.47

“Our hospitals feel broken. Families are breaking the bank just to put gas in the tank because of Moe’s gas tax,” Young added. “A third trip to India sends the wrong message when we have so many problems in our own backyard.”
