SASKATOON - As the fourth wave of the COVID-19 pandemic continues to fill hospitals and claim lives, Saskatchewan NDP Leader Ryan Meili called on the Premier to either order his Health Minister to listen to the experts and implement urgent measures to protect Saskatchewan people, or remove him from his position.
“Earlier this week the Health Minister made it very clear that he does not think it is his job to fight COVID-19 or protect Saskatchewan families,” said Meili. “It’s time for the Premier to step up to the plate. The Premier was wrong to prematurely declare victory at the beginning of the summer and ignore the risks of the Delta variant. If his Health Minister is not willing to take steps to save lives, he must be removed as minister and replaced with someone who will.”
