NDP ready to hold Sask. Party to account for cuts, sell-offs and growing deficit

With a new NDP MLA and the Spring Session set to begin on Monday, NDP Leader Trent Wotherspoon said the NDP Opposition will continue to pressure the government to stop making Saskatchewan people pay for Sask. Party mismanagement, scandal and waste with their callous cuts and desperate sell-offs.

“I’ve been hearing it across the province and we just heard it loud and clear from the people of Meewasin,” Wotherspoon said. “Saskatchewan people are fed up with the Sask. Party’s lies about the deficit and debt, the billions wasted through mismanagement like the bypass overrun, and the GTH land scandal, and they aren’t going to stand by while the Sask. Party forces them to pay the price. The NDP will continue to push for accountability, honesty, and an end to Sask. Party cuts to the services we need like education and health care, and schemes to sell-off SaskTel and our valuable Crowns.”

Wotherspoon said that the NDP’s by-election win in Saskatoon Meewasin, which took a seat away from the Sask. Party and added Ryan Meili to the Official Opposition, is representative of what he and his team have been hearing across Saskatchewan. People are upset about the sell-off of the Crown Corporations, the growing deficit, shrinking job numbers, and being forced by the Sask. Party to pay the price with cuts to programs they depend on.

“Whether it’s job losses, unmanageable wait times and the loss of care in hospitals and health centres, cuts to crucial supports, or less attention for our kids in their classrooms, the stories we’re hearing are often heart-wrenching” Wotherspoon said. “The consequences of the Sask. Party’s mismanagement, scandal, and waste are very real and they affect real people but, instead of admitting mistakes and taking meaningful action to improve things, all we’ve seen from the Sask. Party is dishonesty and deeper cuts.”
