Leaked SHA memo highlights Sask. Party recruitment failures leading to bed closure at Regina General Hospital

The Sask. Party says one thing, SHA memo says another

REGINA - Today, Official Opposition Leader Carla Beck and Health Critic Vicki Mowat released a leaked internal SHA memo. The memo shows that the Sask. Party’s recruitment strategies have failed to adequately staff the Regina General Hospital and avert a bed closure in its Medical Intensive Care Unit. The memo also states that there have been “a number of contracts cancelled at the last minute”, leading to no staffing replacement until the end of summer.

Under the Sask. Party, Indigenous students are falling behind

REGINA - Today, Official Opposition Education Critic Matt Love, Advanced Education Critic Jennifer Bowes, and First Nations and Metis Relations Critic Betty Nippi-Albright responded to the Provincial Auditor’s 2023 Report that condemned Scott Moe’s Sask. Party government for failing Indigenous students.

“For years, this Sask. Party government suggested their education plans were oven-ready when in reality they’re half-baked,” said Love. “How are Indigenous students supposed to succeed if the Sask. Party government won’t come up with a real plan with real targets? Teachers and school administrators are giving it their all but feel the government is working against them with all these funding cuts.”
